Whippoorwill No More

 

A part of her energy

as we sent

bade the stars enjoy the sunshine’s glint

Taught the cellular earth to relax and breathe

brought the cosmotic canvas to its knees

Glazed the germ of sand, which into oceans quench

She played a trance-filled whippoorwill safety wench

Trumpeted the sloth in its uphill climb

Formed the bridge into a mother-peace  lake, sublime

She swam without shame in moonlight’s glove

Floating over the membrane of cerebral love

Here and Gone

The Beautifuls

You helped them leap into hearts!

Lover of the beloveds

they all class this place

Making us seem evolved

We got to be lovely

I’ll play something…

they can hear in their DREAMS!

Roy played

we talked

I cried

Resident said

I talk to your mother all the time…

Don’t do anything to hurt yourself

My idealized dream mind

imagined she saw

or knew

or connected to the realms

on the inside

It was a marvelous bit of synchronicity

Suffering Angel

The word violin

wrapped up in her name

as within a cocoon

Silk

She could tell you her life’s story

and make it sound

so painfully raw

you wanted to inhabit it

to feel her talent in your veins

She knew Lenny

well enough

to call him that

and played under his

conduction

like a bee

following a bat

Her stinging lack of diplomacy

telling me

“You’ll never play like that”

She was a gorgeous

sufferer

This Christmas

This Christmas

I would like good relationships

with extended family members…

Oh, right, I have that.

How about some goals and plans and new hobbies?

Hey, I’m dancing, blogging, painting, singing…

Yah, I’m good there.

How about rewarding work?

Um, yes, I’m teaching music; I love that; I love kids.

It would be nice to have a lot of friends

from different walks of life,

friendly relationships,

men and women;

Check!

Well, there are still those Debbie-Downer moments…

but I also have the mp3’s my son downloaded

on my phone so that I could jam while I drive

or the laughs I share

with another son

on the way to his school

or the music

philosophy

and synchronicity I enjoy

with my OTHER son.

So if my husband and I could just

connect and understand each other a little more…

if we could just spend some time

apart

in different situations

living life

and getting together

while we immensely enjoy

getting to know each other

over and over again…

Wow!

I have that too.

There’s very few things that I don’t have

so few

that even if something could be missing

it’s just not! 🙂
