Jellyfish Sequence

Smoke, mirror, sea
Remember me?
Moon, minnow, grief
Drying Pisces
Sky, sorrow, beach
Skeleton key

My Smile

How do I decorate myself?
With water where the wild things dwelt
The sword inside Orion's Belt 
With ancient tales the Toltec telt
In stones Medusa's snakes had dealt
My smile to make them break and melt
With all the love our Father felt
And light left as His angel fell
I disagree with Miss Chanel
I'll take things off when I'm in Hell

Students ready, teachers here
Suddenly we both appear
Patience please, for both our sake
I am trying to caretake
She asks me to walk by faith
I her to communicate
Lending hand and listening ear
I can hear her loud and clear 
She sees me through facing fear
I'd abandoned my career
Thrive inside a twist of fate
Speak despite delay in rate
Love is all you need and take
Now we get to graduate

Traveling Light

I wonder what his heart looks like
A cypress tree and starry night
Like grenadine with Diet Sprite
The streamers on a child's bike
Cathedral bells and falling rice
Or ocean swells 'neath diamond kites
Like tinsel strands and traveling light?
He'll show me once he knows I'm right

The Mouse

With candy cane handcuffs, there needn't be keys 
Mistreat me this Christmas, I chew through and leave
My quips are my missiles and kisses deadly
Such insulin shock, you could drop and decease
Curled up with the kittens in mistletoe leaves
One eye on my business and cheese as I sleep
I've predators present at every degree
And ready or not, it's your thoughts I can read
So know this - I'm focused, and I will succeed 
The mouse in my house always stirring is me

God Boss

Love for an art
Heart for a home
God for a boss
Leave me alone

Murder, mansion, mystery 
Do you know your history?
Queen of Hearts in memory 
Might I be your enemy?
Pick the candlestick and see 
Clues are in my poetry
House of cards and car of clowns
State of mind that wasn't sound
Sorry! Scrabble word not found
Back to basic starting ground
I'm in wind and when I'm round...
Jenga, all your walls come down

Show & Tell

Show & tell
Should've known
Swallowed whole
Spit up bones
Is this you 
Off your throne?
Without wings
All alone
Could've moved
Would have grown
Wouldn't you
Have rather flown?
Face your fear
Change your tone
Find your way
Phone your home

ICU (Love, God)

Whatever you may say or do
Or all you haven't gotten to
Whatever that you hurt or who
...Whether or not you meant it to
However you may think and rue
Or drug and drink into the blue
Whatever harm that then ensues 
(Although in time it's your turn, true)
Whatever you've been in or through...
You never change how I see you

Inside See

Look where He led me
Look at how lovely
Green isn't envy -
It's lush and leafy
Beavers so busy -
We stop what's easy
Block what would flow free
Dehydrate Maui
Irrigate, it's key - 
Water's inside, see?

Unsettled Soul

Unsettled soul
You never weren't whole
Oh Natalie, no
Not unloveable 
At maiden, mom, crone -
Married or alone
Believe me I know
I've been in your boat
We're already home

Dry Lightning

Dry lightning, no rain
Specific in aim
I fight it, my brain
This doesn't seem sane
Waned water, pure pain
I race 'round my drain
Must fix this, reframe
So blend them and bathe
In middle, I'm saved
A perfect storm made

Water Bearer

Water bearer, bring your cup
Tame the blaze that near corrupt
Air to lungs to rouse from rut
Legs of trunks to lift me up
Isn't that I'm not enough
Sentences can ends in 'but'
When this writer needs a nudge
Enters as an angel does
On my path and back above
Blessed am I to have your love

On the other side of trigger 
You will do well to remember 
Something simple so you center
Playful, pretty, joyful, gentle
Such as shells that spell surrender
Set one your ear to enter
To your heart, your holy mentor
Light in flight, ingnite adventure
What in life excites - a glimmer

Left a Libra

Left a Libra
Death in zebra
Stripes to wipe this from my soul
Split in pieces 
Kept it secret
Now I fight to make this known
Took my children
Had me prisoned
Turned my gifts against; Controlled 
I'll release this
Be forgiveness
Fear, it's clear - is to let go

The Speaking Sky

The speaking sky, in streaking sighs
Of hues that hum and harmonize
Its sleeping spies - our stars disguised
Adrift, still with, as dreamtime dies
Her asking eyes, wide open, wise
All knowing, probing - analyze
With birds that fly, so act as scribes
The words to serve and showcase by
Come clouds who cry, each weeping, "why?"
These wisps of lips must kiss goodbye
For sun makes might - does give us life
Each beam his means of screaming light

To Swim

This contract? It ends
I don't wait for men
It's now, that was then
I woke up, I win
I've learned how to swim

Significant Other

God is my partner, so please understand -
I'll never be tethered to woman or man
I won't play a part and I don't meet demands
Unless they're my own and on ground that I stand
I keep neither cuffs nor a ring on my hand
I do all I want and whatever I can
Alone is illusion - I know who I am:
Supported and courted according to plan


Like sediment sinks
Slow down and rethink
Don't settle, but sleep
Awaken in peace
A wind will upheave
Expand and release
As ripples, you reach
Wash, rinse, and repeat

Weather harsh, window sill
Ants are art - do not kill
Shopping cart, poison pill
Put it down, please be still
Fall apart, wait until...
Watch us start, see our skill
Follow heart, with free will -
We are smart - we rebuild

A Rose

Like the light comes through cracks
I'm a rose that grows back
In full bloom and intact
A high vibe and impact
In spite of and in fact
I'm on point and on track 
Free of fear, love from lack
I am better than that

At Play

These birds sound like scissors 
Wings clip cut away
Seams burst, sundress withers
It's dismal this day
My words blend with blizzards
Do dreams die or stay?
Deferred - dead like winter
But always at play
