Wake Up, Woman

If your dreams are challenges, then rise above them & wake!
EYES WIDE OPEN
Lucidly live them
Be not afraid as you walk awake
Recognizing the one walking by your side is real.
TAME THOSE THOUGHTS!
and lose your Self!
despite yourself
not in others
but with them, to them…
SERVE YOUR PURPOSE, whatever you choose it to be
Because only a self-less server
lover
mother
will have anything worth to offer.
WAKE UP.

Ripples from my Center

Grateful for today

for your touch

for your body pressing down on mine

~ deeper into the wet Earth I dive ~

The moment felt so surreal…

so I opened my eyes and saw you were truly there.

What tricks the mind plays!

or Time and Space,

about the reality one creates.

Will I have more of you in the future?

In this modern world where connections are fleeting and technology is king…

I can’t help but daydream about you!

A wave of passion ripples from my center…

the water in you stirs the water in me.

The Scent of Longing

It smells like you
Your scent hangs heavy in the air
Like my hair,
As it spirals down my face like smoke,
     after days of tending the fire.

Your wet, dampened-by-the-rain scent
Spreads
Like the thread of your presence
Weaving a web of memories
   – others remembered, others yet to be fulfilled –
       around me.

It smells like rain
I caught a whiff of the mist rising to kiss the Sun.
Like a prayer it raised me up to the Heart of the Heavens and led me to the clouds that gather in your eyes.

Your aroma is that of the Earth.
   Humble.
      Comforting.
         Penetrating.
It seeps through the soil of my fertile Heart-Mind and inspires the Truth.

I hear the Song now
Each dew drop a note in the Symphony of Life.

And so…I feel your roots within me now, Man-Tree.
The Breath of Life reminds me of your lessons and Love.

plant yourself strong

How can I forget?
