Dance for me my divine love.

entry picture

 

I want to see you glide through your sacred path.

Like a dancer empowered with courage and belief in yourself.

Not influenced by the reluctance of those that dither at the edge, afraid of adventure.

You are never afraid of dying because you haven’t finished living yet.

Your song has only just begun.

You mould your destiny from day to day.

So go on, open those wings and let m...

Tis the season to colour your soul

Delectable Autumn.

I embrace your abundance of orange, red and gold

as leaves waft to the ground.

Nature’s wondrous way of ‘letting go’.

I feel your darkening days and the chill in the air.

Sharp winds pierce my face.

I hear the birds twittering as they make their plans for migrations --

Looking for a warm bed for winter.

I see apples strewn on the ground.

Then as a squi...

My Communal Dance

entry picture

Here I am entering a space between episodes

where everything seems so real, so right.

So unfeigned that I begin to doubt my sanity.

But as I travel within that space inside me

I see more regressive versions

of new episodes.

They peak and ebb,

sucking me into a vortex of frustration.

Then suddenly a new story emerges.

Suddenly I’m engulfed by a flood of people.

They ur...

The Awakening

entry picture

(I have been urged by a dear, dear soul mate to publish this again. So here it is..)

 

Unchained.

Unhindered. Uncensored.

You speak of freedom.

But imprisoned within your prejudiced cell,

chained to your capitalist creed,

trapped within sexist differentials

drunk on delusion

Opinion coloured by your petty black and white dichotomies.

Then the grating sound of rolling ...

JEFFY YOU DIAMOND GEEZER

entry picture

Jeff left for good last week.

Heard him say he’s “got a meeting with his divine master. He’d be a while”.

Our journey together was glittered with magical, mystical moments.

We travelled side by side through life

although at times our existential views had a polarised pull about them.

But the connection was constant. The bond was eternal.

 

I see your resplendent face now Jeffy...

The Awakening

Unchained.

Unhindered. Uncensored.

You speak of freedom.

But imprisoned within your prejudiced cell,

chained to your capitalist creed,

trapped within sexist differentials

drunk on delusion

Opinion coloured by your petty black and white dichotomies.

Then the grating sound of rolling gates

Grant you the gift of the golden key

to step out of your sickly skin, follow your...

Come with me to a higher ground

entry picture

Let’s turn confusion into clarity,

Resistance into submission,

Suspicion into naked trust.

Let’s open the floodgates to gratitude

and awaken the sleeping energy within us.

Let gratitude take us to a higher ground.

A higher purpose.

Let’s start at the source. That sacred place within each of us.

So come, let’s go within and then rise to a higher ground together.

Want that...

F**k the Forgive and Forget mantra

I forgive you because I want to.

Because I want to free myself from the bitterness and pain.

I forgive you because I want you feel forgiven unconditionally.

Forgiveness kills hate and with hate out of the way

Compassion takes over, wrapping us in a cloak of comfort.

Forgiving you makes me stronger.

It illuminates the imperfections within me.

It gives my love new meaning.

I ...

Knowing Me

And on the seventh day, I rested.

Following whispers from my inner voice I took time out

to go within

and touch those spots that others can’t reach.

A bit like a Torah edict.

Then my head space opened,

stimulating conversations between beliefs, ethics, fears, contradictions.

Embracing a particular  tussle between the existential and the essential.

Or is it my new calling?
