Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow

A butterfly flutters across the Atlantic
Immune to the pandemic
To put a smile on my face

Staying with uncertainty
My cells shimmer in golden sun
Reflecting visions of tomorrow

Letting go to have 
Lo que nunca serĂ¡ 
Y siempre fue

Being here now
To see a clear path forward;
The one that brought me here

Celebrate

I ran and strained
Searching for a way
Like Augustine
Analyzing restlessness

My confession is this:
When the clouds 
Of shame and fear cleared
My soul saw the truth

The place I was running from
Where my journey began
Was what I was searching for
All along

The mind plays tricks
The Universe jokes
The truth is this: 
You are complete now

Know that
Feel it in time
You are whole
You are You

You are Me
We are We 
Stay in this truth
Unapologetically

Join the celebration
Dare to live
We will greet you
With open arms

Shedding & Rebirth

Venusian soil undulates giving way for your escape
From these walls that contract without warning
Sinewy mysteriousness descends upon my land
A monolith among apes

Pulses of panic arise soothed by swells of breath
Understanding dawns to dissolve isfet
Miss conception breeds fear
Within ourselves and amongst each other

Rooting into Earth salt spills and neurons fire
Jolting me from present sensation
I embrace this experiential reality
With decreasing resistance

Embodying mindfulness and compassion
Always and unconditionally
My neglected shell, Giving Tree
Bruised and burned, never abandons me

Hello, Shiva

He wears pompous well as I wear muse
The act dissolves, and I feel used
Grasping at love is a Catch-22
Ripe pain forsakes vine
Burrows down to sprout through

I surrender and I'm not afraid
Fertility blossoms from cavernous shade
I am the Zeitgeist
Never been realer
Potential, the drug
Now forgiving the dealer

If you seek permission, look inside
What you need is within you
The game is a lie
Leap over the suffering
Claim who you are
Give it up already
Everybody's a star

Pond Song

Meandering tinted leaves
Coaxing rays of tangerine
Curiosity calmly crackles
Transcendent tones

Undomesticated prints
Her sapient tonal hints
Echo sacredly to soothe
Our buzzing bones

Sparkling turtle pond
Reflective ripples from beyond
Deeply douse me
In playful invitation

Emerging from my shady shell
To sip from Our collective well
Surrender daringly
To pure collaboration
