Dream magic

 

 


 

My dream is to be, to be all I can be,
to be comfortable in my own skin,
to know I belong
with the people around me,
the places I inhabit,
to the creatures whose path crosses mine.

I am a woman, I am whole,
I am a soul here to heal
and to heal those around me
with my presence,
I have knowledge of plants,
blooming and not, edible and not,
designed to heal, and not.

I use this knowledge given to me
to better every thing and living being around me,
for this to spread to all outer reaches of this plane,
bringing light, joy and peace to the restless,
bringing freedom, release and tomorrow to the divine souls
already sharing the sunshine with me,
and cooperation, understanding, respect,
growth, natural change and love will flood the earth,
touching every shadow, bringing it to light,
touching every sorrow, healing in its wake,
touching every broken heart, picking up the beat again
and able to emit the same love they have felt.

And thus the new world has begun.

7 ibis

 



 Seven ibis came over from the oceanside,

ever calling, calling, calling,

they drew a line right over my house,

all the while calling, calling, calling,

the front of the line reached the apex of the mountain,

they spiraled down onto a field out of sight,

all the time calling, calling, calling,

at 18-something on 18 November, 7 ibis flew over my house.

On the Path of Love and Light

 



The ocean in the not too far off distance is rolling, azure, warm,

the soft breeze feels good,

as does the sun on my bare skin,

and the music in the air caresses my senses

into a perfectly soft, white, fluffy cloud,

joy floods every part of my being,

contentment, peace, I’m pliable, drifting in the flow

of what is, in light and goodness and kindness, giving, receiving,

a never-ending circle feeding, nourishing, growing ever bigger

and stronger, stronger than the dismally low frequencies

prevailing right now, they cannot resist, they cannot withstand

the tug from deep within their soul answering the universal call

of love, so let it be.

The 5th of November

 

 


I’m free-flowing with old rock,

the drums and easy living hypnotic and it captures

my imagination in the ways of old,

awakens that drive, the passion to break every restriction,

follow the beat of your heart and the direction of your footfalls

into the darkening Friday night waiting…

 

Close your eyes and see the colours float through the air,

colourful strands of music teasing and tasting,

enticing you to move your limbs however they need,

however they want, toward whatever may happen,

wherever that may be,

it invites your sense of youth, of love, of excitement,

dripping with the desire to live, live fully and wholly and exclusively

to your truth, your being, your longings

and drag away this captured 55-year old woman

from the midst of an invisible war, where every fairy tale has proven true

and every news cast is fabrication and indoctrination.

 

Damn you! Damn you for stealing dreams, hope, joy, pleasure,

damn you for hurting children! Damn you for hurting animals!

Damn you for thinking you have to right to abuse and kill at your whim!

Damn you for always hovering at the edge of escape

but tonight? Tonight you are going to have to take 2nd seat

for I plan to be, to feel, to do, just that which I desire to,

it is the 5th of November…...

Emotions

 



 I can feel colours, every colour of the rainbow,

I can feel music, pulsing through my veins,

the joy behind the smiles I can see,

the wonder in a little one’s big bright eyes,

the delight of frolicking pups chasing the shadow of a bird,

the pure true awe of the majestic mountains who have my back,

the raw power of the crashing waves rushing in my direction,

just as I crash at times, so hard the impact leaves me without breath,

slams me hard into my seat, keeping me there, pushing me down,

paralysed, without a hint of where to from here,

and even as I curl away to shield my self

with tears of pain, helplessness, pointlessness,

I can and will accept this as long as beauty too, endures.

Dream a dream

 




If you could dream a dream within this dream

would you dream yourself young, wild and free

of inhibitions, rules, constraints, reticence,

with a solid faith alive and knowing what is right,

what is wrong, what to follow, what to let go,

free-flowing on exuberance, love and laughter,

dancing to the song sung by your lovers lips

over the flames of the fire burning high,

under stars celebrating the return of goodness

to this plane, freedom and peace reigning supreme,

without leaders, without laws, with respect, with understanding,

so that I may lay claim to the other life that was destined for me.

Not my Friday night

 




 There’s a rhythm pulsing in my soul

I just can’t quite find the beat

it's alluring, I get lost in it some times

awaken as if from a dream

and it leaves light behind

light and a yearning for… for…

for this nightmare to end

for this battle to start

because this hovering in limbo

is threatening my sanity

tolerance has worn dangerously thin

there is no easy way out of this

no short-cut, no avoiding it

it’s the moments you hear young beautiful people

talking about having ‘done their duty’ and done the double

that sadness overwhelms so intensely tears flow

and it feels like hope is being sucked right out of my lungs

and I am suffocating from this helplessness,

this crippling powerlessness, to divert the end

that is sure to follow……

Now

 





Memories simmer just beneath her face,

seemingly close but they leave before they lace,

eluding her when she gives chase,

the more she grasps the looser their embrace,

consciousness kills all the light and the spark

fades into blackness so deep and oh, so dark,

it’s ending,

live in the light, in the dream that you share,

hopelessly wild, where you’re free, free without care,

it’s ending,

when is the time and where is the place,

there where we’ll stand, when we fully can embrace,

new in this rhythm and new is the sheet,

new are the places and people you'll meet

leave out the yesterdays, leave out the past,

now is all there is to have, all that ever will last.
