She Speaks

For the audio Podcast of poem, click below on title in bold: SHE SPEAKS You can also get this Podcast from iTunes! She Speaks is a poem about the The Divine Feminine as Nature. When I was younger I had an interest in a type of poetry I especially noted in Welsh Literature, which I greatly enjoyed, that I often referred to as ‘I am’ poetry. These poems basically concern some God, Goddess, Hero, etc. and use a sort of ‘I am this and I am that’ as a description of said Divine Being. In truth, one runs into this sort of poem in many places throughout history. Often recited by a Priest or Priestess in order to pull the energies of a particular Divinity into themselves as a channel for their participants when doing a ritual. However, these poems may be at times a teaching device recounting information in some riddle form to their aspirants. Secrets of their order. She Speaks is not about Secrets of that sort as what I write should be fairly clear. It is wonderful to work on such a pie...

First Plants

For the audio Podcast of poem, click below on title in bold: FIRST PLANTS You can also get this Podcast from iTunes! First Plants is a poem about the Celebration of Spring. And in celebrating the first days of Spring we invoke the Divine Feminine in our praises. That She may come into our lives at this time of year in our hopes for Her abundance, love and Grace. In this She bids us to give Her the first plants, to dance with Her the first dance, to enfold ourselves within Her and to love Her. That if we give ourselves to Her, She will guide us and lead us to our true spiritual home. That as Seekers of this Truth, She will know us and enjoin us in our dance.

Enchantress

For the audio Podcast of poem, click below on title in bold: ENCHANTRESS You can also get this Podcast from iTunes! Enchantress is a poem about Enlightenment. An Enchantress for me is not so much one who invokes the Elements to work her will, but rather, she who seeks to unlock doors of other Realms. Her dance is the weave of energies in a desire to become part of the All. In this poem she is given those keys and passage to those Realms. Where she may dance the dance of Enlightenment and to rejoin in that dance whenever she may desire. I see her at night under a bright full moon, her regalia in the colors of life and that the dance she weaves is one of pure joy.

For Gary

For the audio Podcast of poem, click below on title in bold: FOR GARY You can also get this Podcast from iTunes! This poem, "For Gary", is for my husband, whom I love very dearly. I don't often write poetry about my personal feelings this way. They are always something I seem to have difficulty expressing. It takes a certain stillness for me to write and my personal feelings of love do not tend to elicit such stillness. However, I felt it important to express such somewhere, somehow. Because, my husband truly does mean everything to me. In other places online I have called this poem "For Love" as it easily applies to love for one's mate in general. In the listening of it, I hope you may agree.

Little Hearts

For the audio Podcast of this poem, click below on title in bold: LITTLE HEARTS You can also get this Podcast from iTunes! Little Hearts is a poem that honors all the cats in my life. Although I also love dogs and animals in general, something about cats has always spoken to me. My cat friends seem to both enjoy and love me while retaining a certain wildness to their nature. In some ways, it is as if Nature Itself comes to sit with me awhile, perhaps to commune with me that we might enjoy each other's presence. I hope there shall always be cats in my life because, for me, it is like having a certain amount of Nature always surrounding me. Being with me, watching me.

Divine Masculine and Love as Power

For the audio Podcast of this poem, click below on title in bold: DIVINE MASCULINE AND LOVE AS POWER You can also get this Podcast from iTunes! This reading is concerning an experience I had about 3-5 years ago of the Divine Masculine and His explanation of Love as Power and sharing that with a circle of people. Was it a dream? Was it an Astral Experience? So hard to say other than it had an impact on me that has never left. However, it has taken me awhile to say anything because I was concerned that it would be taken the wrong way. I have come to recognize that if I might share it without any more comment than the fact that it happened and how it happened, perhaps I can relieve myself of that concern...

Windwalker

For the audio Podcast of this poem, click below on title in bold: WINDWALKER You can also get this Podcast from iTunes! This is a poem about the WindWalker - a Shaman who walks between the Worlds. It is about how they wield the energies between the Worlds and that they can be a cause for the mending of those energies of the worlds. It is also a poem I wrote several years ago because of a Lucid Dream, or what I personally would call an Astral Walk... In that especial experience I looked up to see many colored ribbons in the sky coming down to Earth. A Healer Spirit next to me informed me that those colored ribbons represented the help souls were giving from the other side to the physical for various illnesses and problems... It is therefore a poem of healing.
