Divine Mother

creeping, subtle darkness
wrapping itself around corners
shadows ever dancing
in possibility’s periphery
endless, waving waters
churning, foaming mysteries


enveloping, consuming earth
gritty, uncontained and saturating
she’ll take our light again
penetrating, but never scarring her
collecting all our debris again
not drowning, but letting them float


shapes shifting as they flow
movement’s unconstrained freedom


accepting our crimes like our dead
digesting histories, creating futures


wonder at her many marvels
fear her for her unlimited power


those things we hate her for
inspire, intrigue and animate us
forgetting our fragile dependence
while still suckling at her abundance


lucky she is so much more than us
all our greed could never diminish her


she gives for the being taken·
allowing our imaginations to refine
she lives among the forsaken
comforting the hunted in her arms
deeper still than the sky is wide
collapsing endlessly into fragments


no matter how we try to avoid it
we all return to her when life leaves us

A Prayer of Surrender

take out forgotabout

things tucked behind

in corners undusted

crammed into shapes

foreign to themselves


remember the ways

hope clings to truth

look other directions

away and far passed

promises to be better


fail 10,000,000 times

leave off fear of fear

releasing ego’s karma

forgiving to be forgiven

accepting I’m ALL too


as simple as breathing

taken for granted, yet

persistently graceful

free of conditional love

always fully available


accepting the opening

allowing the trembling

aching to move, meant

massaging the pains in

integration of my fall
