Seeking My Father

IMG_0923

If the man who raised me
the man who starved me
who was ashamed to acknowledge me as his daughter
and failed me in his brokenness
is not my real father
and God is
then I need to discover the identity of God the Father
and what that means
in terms of who I am

He is the Father of Lights
the Generator of Poetry
He is strong and protective
perceptive of my feminine heart
He has no wish to harm me
He feeds me with the best of all Food
His voice resonates through the quantum fields of my being
He is good
He is the Author of Life
He loves me with a fierce tenderness

And I am His daughter
I come from Him
which means that my worth
and my identity
flow from my true Father

The Launching

IMG_0903

Traveling a path she has already begun
Deepening the grooves and widening the arcs
Branching out and pulling in
A quickening in the pulses of momentum
Preparing to launch herself to where there is no longer road
Preparing to catch fire and soar

Wildflower

Texas Wildflowers - Indian Blanket in a field of Bluebonnets

embracing her natural state of joy and passionate abandon
a wildflower dancing in the wind
blossoming in uninhibited fields of unconventionality
and scattering seeds in places
where only she dares to know
that life can take hold

Colours of Celestial States

In her fertile years
a woman is like the moon
mystical and revered
ever changing
sometimes blood-red
never quite sure who of she is
from one day to the next
powerful enough to exert tidal forces
yet locked within the gravitational pull of her obligations

During her perimenopause years
a woman is like the sun
full of golden fire
burning up what has become irrelevant
and with access to enough energy to take her stand
solar flares may disrupt communications
but her passion ignites the blossoming of creativity
everywhere she casts her glow

And in her menopause years
a woman is like a silvery star
dazzling as she dances in the night sky
a point of reference
to those seeking direction
she delights in knowing exactly who she is
sparkling in her seasoned femininity
witness of accumulated wonders
until she eventually transcends
to heavens beyond her wildest imaginings

Untamed Invitation

img_0712

He calls to you
outside of the rusty gates of your preconceptions
beyond brittle boundaries lodged for generations

He asks you
to meet Him in the vast expanse of your heart
in dreamy star fields of possibilities

He invites you
to come forth into uncharted adventures
laced with dragons and rescuing and unimaginable wonders
speckled with the mundane and the cloaked
but always
ultimately
advancing into the wild
where you can both
breathe freely

Advancing, With A Gravitational Pull

img_0709
Two planets collided
and when the debris settled
it was revealed that one was destined to become Earth
while the other took up its role as Moon

Past and Present collided

With the Past
like the Moon
forever caught in the gravitational pull of the Present
stark and devoid of life
and yet still able to exert force on emotional tides

The Present
like the Earth
full of vitality and colour and change
breathing and spinning and ever-renewing

The Moon and the Past most readily come into view when times are dark
they speak of history
of battle scars
and of altering perspectives
they are also illuminated with wisdom

The Earth and the Present
are a treasure chest of emerging experiences
a place with kings and queens in disguise
advancing against the edges of what could become

Two planets collided
and an epic story was launched.

Energetic Collision

img_0708
The past superimposes on the present
bringing with it all the fire and passion that my wild veins can handle
burning up lies that have been told and boundaries that have been imposed
fuelling the firestorm of rebirth
