i dance on raindrops
delicate tears
and hungry earth

i tend the garden
with impeccable care
and wonderous awe

i listen
for the ancient knowing
carried through the vessel
of my being

i promise
my Self that i will
love her
and hold her tenderly

i will cast forward
all the seeds i carry
and bear witness to their birth

i dance on raindrops

for bill

kindred spirit on
an unknown path
wandering soul of
tonight your pain
is my pain
tonight your fear
is my fear
in every breath
i take
you are not alone
and the universe awaits
the goodness of your being

don't say the 's' word
don't say them
cause they don't exist
fear in the heart
is hate, intolerance
in the mind and hand

walls create
imaginary silence
and turmoil within

reverse the truck
and put it in park
i'm waiting for you to answer
your soul to answer
wonder where you are
who you are
your earthly desires
i imagine your kiss
as an
to eternity
hearts called to our
and the perfection

naked i come to you
raw and ugly and beautiful
ready to commit to this process with you
erase the past
and connect to this moment
when we're asked to shed our skin
lizard skin
who belongs to noone
slipping off like butter
who can i be
deeply we dare to probe
ethereal web at our back
and we trust
and fall and dance and love
and fall and dance and love\and fall and dance and love\and fall and dance and love

i looked for you
round every corner
sure you would come soon
but you didn`t
so i closed my eyes
...and in my soul
found you

dearest wonderer
awakened prince of dark
you belong to nobody
not even what breathes beneath your skin
no home but the Universe
no law but eternity
receive my humble kisses
a good night wish is all i have to offer
.. for now

dear sweet wanderer
gypsy souled and wide eyed
your belongings now
are trust and faith
your home is
tinged with sorrow
for possibilities unimagined
into reality

yet shooting stars
bursting with ancient wisdom
tell another story
of manifested dreams
and deep pools of love
flowing in a river of tears
joy brushes the cheek
of pain
and angels dance
as you begin
coming home

the wounded sky cries my name

and i want to go to her

this earthly body

wandering the streets of


this can't be real this can't be real

why must i live among

the very things i want to destroy

my insanity or theirs

when your body moves in me i understand

but the wounded sky is calling

indigo child borne of no one

star baby sipping the milky way

healing nectar

earthly nomad and gypsy soul

what is this cruel joke

i don't belong here

go and heal the world my dear
one day soon
we will find each other at the crossroads
you`re singing from the chickadee's mouth and into the tree
from the belly of the earth into the clouds
from your prayers to my wounds
from the reflections into what is yet to come
from here to there
from my shattered soul to a speck of hope sketched
on the skin of the lake

if i could imagine one action
only one
that would set things right
reverse climate change
end war
eradicate poverty
education for all
if there was one act
one single act
to set in motion
the chain of events to
accomplish all this
it would be

to go deep inside me

it's in the letting go
that i know
if my wings
are clipped
or ready
to soar
the moment of grace
when i hold on no more
and i wonder
who will see me
in the mirror
