my answer: we.

all of the creatures of the earth will be under this moon
a second moon in the month we call august
yet they do not count days
they do not lie their thoughts upon a grid seven squares long
dripping through all time that has ever existed

what day of the week was love created?
what day of the week do we learn to speak the language of the sky?
what day of the week does the madness end?

my answer:

please understand
i love to draw on a grid
i love being able to see time stretch out
in the shapes we call years
in dreaming we call plans

but now?
to do what is right right now
is this something we forgot?
to live in our point of power

to live the way of the dophin
the entire world their home
ocean dining room
is it all it is flow
no appointments broken
because there is nothing to appoint
yesterday tomorrow today
converge and become

we have spent ourselves
saving time
saving money
saving our stuff thing universe

to save the dolphins
let us save ourselves
let us live enjoy
let us live

in this moment of mine to live means
to speak from the deep
and this is what it says
“let love teach”

my heart goes out to people that use their power
in bloody fearful ways
they no nothing better?!
history is spun thick with wrongdoings
and finger pointing
generating more
wrongdoing finger pointing madness

let us not shame but teach
is that not what we all need
someone who knows a new way

i fantasize about love mobs
surrounding people of influence at the brink of a new way
thousands of people breathing like the ocean outside their window
whispering “we believe in you”

“we believe you will see
using your power to create beautiful miracles
is your new passion”

this dream begins in whispering this to myself.
“using my power
to create beautiful miracles
is my passion”

what day does the madness end?
what day was love created?
what day do we learn to speak the language of the sky?

my answer:

no plan be

i can’t take off with the
wait of
a plan b and c
all of my energy is dedicated to lift off
the writing is on my wings
its in the wind as it sings past my skin
where this takes me
is a mystery
so be it

every time before
i left a way out
my only need is my way in
deeper and deeper
into the mystery of what i see
i need all of my energy flowing forward
flying over the jungle of doubt filled with silly monsters
i have taken down my fences
jaguar runs free
a sweet and powerful cat
she needs to live her life too.

it’s true i don’t know the future
but i know this
i know that if i don’t put my heart of everything i can
into who i am
then i am incomplete
and isn’t that the saddest thing of all
not to enjoy myself


soft place to dream

i am a delicate creature

all i ever wanted is a safe place to sleep and dream
all i ever wanted is to share what is shared with me
all i ever wanted is to know the rain and the sun and the sky

but early on there was a confusion
i was taught that it was impolite to feel
i was taught to pretended i was blind
i was taught to hate my own flesh

lets worship the image of perfection
lets worship the image of control
lets worship the facts of life
they said
they say
they said

i was afraid so i followed
i didnt know a better way
but i kept a special place inside that only the trees and the animals know about


i have been waking up in the middle of the night
venus and jupiter hovering over the church
after many nights i understood the trees were calling me
so i go to them and sleep in their arms until the sun rises

and i wake up and the air feels soft and warm
and i am safe and delicate and sweet
and i am myself

i can no longer be any other way
when i become hard to fight for my right to be soft
i have already lost

it is a new day
it is my day
i am strong in my softness
i am infinite in my delicacy
i am fearless in my love

i am my soft place to dream

treasure hunter

we’ve created elaborate networks
kindoms dedicated to finding what is wrong
with ourselves, our food, our bodies
we seek out monsters and so because of this we begin to think the world is composed of them
i am a treasure hunter
i will dedicate my days to finding the most magical things lurking inside of you
i will dedicate all i know to help them grow
