Midnight in Paris

Finally saw the movie after buying the DVD forever ago.

So funny. So true. So Woody Allen…
The can-can scene made me cry.

The book that Gil Bender (Owen Wilson) wrote may or may not have been a hit, but his book’s character should be able to get this one…

 

One day,

when the rain pours down in Paris

I shall find solace

in a dusty, old nostalgia shop.

I will find you,

again

As I did in the desert

many Lifetimes ago.

Don’t worry…

You’ll know its Me,

as You did

when I first Touched You.

Blessed Union of Souls

You’ll know…

I promise.

My Loving is unmistakable.

You’ll know.

Naked

Naked

Like the day I was born

yet it is I that cradles you.

Naked

As we lay intertwined

in a long lovers embrace

Oh…

Like a baby, I’m naked.

 

Naked

Standing under hot, flowing water

Little kisses dripping on my skin,

cleansing my body from deep within.

Mmm…

Sweet, sweet steam.

 

Naked

Lying in the dark,

curled up like a seed

Sinking deeper into the Earth in search of you.

 

Come out, come out, wherever you are!

Because you’re Here with me,

but not really…

only the thought of you remains

as I stand Here

looking at myself

Naked.

The Scent of Longing

I Am Woman

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…

a long overdue announcement

I’m not exactly sure why…but I had not shared in This Space (WordPress) that an anthology of poems featuring some of my work is now available in print (in e-book format too).

 

I know…this is big, right? So why had I not flooded all my Noospheric (anything that is on the internet) profiles with this little bit of news?

 

Again, I’m not sure…perhaps because of some evil + belittling voice inside my head saying its no big deal, so why bother? Or because there was another voice saying you’ve already posted it on Facebook and gotten a bunch of likes, so why bother? Or maybe because I felt like I had to be a more experienced WordPress blogger + had to grow my “following” first before saying anything (this blog is only 7 months old). O brother…talk about false humility! :S

 

The funny thing is that

Here,

in this Space,

through this blog,

is where I feel I can actually Be Me,

Pour my Heart out,

Bare my Soul,

(see About page)

 And yet…

and yet…

I had not shared the most unbelievable + beautiful + synchronistic thing that has happened to me ever since I actually start this blog! (I chanced upon the call for poetry submissions browsing through another blog.)

 

But…thanks to this prompt…I am growing some balls (excuse the language…but I Am just Being Me, Here), opening my Heart + baring a little bit more of my Soul…through this post.

 

And so…without further ado…I give you…

 

Poems from Conflicted Hearts. An Anthology.

poems from conflicted hearts - open

 

r-EVOL-ution

You’ve changed…
You smell sweeter now.
Oddly enough,
Aged
You’re more playful;
Fleeting.

How you’ve grown…
Wiser.
Stronger.
More beautiful than I could have ever imagined.

And yet,
so much remains the same.
Love,
Respect;
The Uncertainty of What Shall Happen Next.

Shhhh…
Be with Me in This Moment,
Its all we get this Time!

Don’t let the fear of tomorrow take away the glory of today!

This is All There Is,
so take what I have to give.
I don’t care what you’ll do tomorrow,
I just need to love who you are today.

This is my offering.

Love that flows and is received is Medicine.
Pent up inside; trapped –
It is poison.

Don’t leave me here tomorrow to die a slow death.

Music melts all the separate parts of our bodies together. — Anais Nin

hold me like you do your guitar

and i will sing to you

until the morning light.

watching you caress her body

makes me green with envy…

how is it that you’ve chosen her

and not me?

 

you strum

i hum

together

let us come

and make beautiful music

tonight.
