As One

I opened my eyes After years of never truly seeing And I looked to the stars Those radiant beacons As caught, in a cloud Of swirling Aztec incense  I felt the ancient song Of a hundred pixies drumming Then through falling embers I saw us dancing In tune to the Earth’s wisdom Sweet Mother ofContinue reading “As One”

Onward Bound

I pack my things, to close this chapter; a door on all, I left behind. The nights I tossed in this bed as I witnessed my death, over and over; felt the vicious pain of a wounded mother, a sick child, and a lost father. But I took that hurt, I whispered it love andContinue reading “Onward Bound”
