Finale Shine

18 Apr

9 weeks at long last
the finale is so close
Light at the end–shine!

Fourth Quarter here, now
dream2write relax and breathe
It’s time to use it all now:

Balance, presence, peace
Enjoy this time as it comes
See the true light shine

Others are not your–
Responsibility
let the test scores be as they may

Believe in yourself
love it–your finale
Passionately

Create Now

18 Apr

I sit alone watching each sun ray cut through the window to get to my skin,
Waiting
Light at last
Darkness just a memory

Parts of me
Float back together
Letting go and accepting
Content

I lay my head against the kind pillow
Supported, I dream
Erasing all the hatred, guilt, sadness
Remembering that I am
I am
I am an artist
So it’s time to create!

Schoolhouse Escape

17 Apr

Guest Blog! Enjoy!

It’s a loop from childhood –

3 is a magic number.

So 3 get in the car for 3 days

To find a bit of childhood.

And maybe they do.

 

Somewhere between the

adult problems

adult decisions

adult mis-comforts

it’s there, hiding on the wind blown beach

with ballet leaps

with solitary strolls

with just-around-the-bends that are still

windy.

 

It greets them fleetingly,

in Daisy-on-a-lounge moments

in hair makeover moments

in impromptu fashion show moments.

They hold on to the fragile glimpses as best they can

with community traditions

with late night tales

with unexpected costume changes.

 

When 3 get in the car to unwind the whole adventure,

it’s still on a loop from childhood –

3 is a magic number.

Bring Us Together

16 Apr

Bring us together
Tomfoolery and all
Leave behind walls
They crowd us too much

Bring us together
Late into night
Stories and stories
Giggle out of us tonight

Leave them behind
No walls today
Boxing us in too tight to breathe

Bring us together
To learn from each other
Dishes and breakfasts that
Melt our palates

Bring us together
No walls, No filters
Just girls: a story
Unique and perfect

Leave it behind
Leave it alone
To live no more:
A tall thick wall.

Straight and Curvy

15 Apr

I try to walk
Straight across
Each step I place
gently forward
Focused and pure
Genuine simple

It feels
straight
It feels
right
It feels

Until I turn
make my way back
And see for the first time
My footprints–clear for miles and miles
Never straight
always curving
It’s there
Right there
For all to read:
There is no straight line
From one point to another.
Only curvy,
only bendy

Nervous Anxieties
Fill the car
2 hours of talking
Talking and talking
Process, share, reflect
U-turn
Process, share, reflect
U-turn

Then a break—
Sand Wind Chill Waves
Numb my feet
Enough to remember
The waves, the current
My gravity is restored

Don’t need anything
Nothing at all
Anxieties all gone
Fears all gone
I’m pulled to let it all ride the current
Each waving a vigorous goodbye!

Know Me

11 Apr
I want 
you to know
i am 
a girl, strong and smart
despite your need to keep me down
i grew to be kind 

I want 
you to know
i hated you and what you did
for so long I sat brewing anger 
i needed love
your love, your respect, your validation
for so long
i searched in every relationship
destroying each in search of it.

I want 
you to know 
i love
not like you
i think
not like you
i show affection
not like you.

I want 
you to know
I let you go
I did it
all the conflict
all the fear
all the anger
it's floating down the river toward another 

I want
you to know
I am powerful
loving 
passionate!
I am a woman
without your guidance
I am.
