Your Journal
October 31, 2014

Bon jour!

The root,

Jour,

of

Journal

and

Journey,

Derived

from

The French,

Which means

‘Day’.

Inscribe

What you think,

Feel

And want to say,

Contemplate,

Elevate,

Initiate.

Hug a Tree
October 31, 2014

Update to this poem (which is also a repost)

This concept of tree is being expanded, this is the teaser to the updated version which is being crafted:

an all natural, nurturing, wisdom of the earth guide for us to breathe, a protector and partner, who takes care of us and we need to take care of them.

Where I grew up, I had the good fortune to have a creek nearby.  This valley had been a sanctuary to me for so many reasons, from timeless walks with the dog, to hours and hours of dry land conditioning for hockey, to countless journeys taken running in prep for cross country to just being nurtured by Mother Nature in contemplation.  After one of those walks, again, the inspiration was channeled from nature to paper.  This passage was written in Feb 1998.

Dancing Queen

A partner
In this dance of life
A celebration of a
Celestial beat
Someone who is not
Afraid of having their

I don’t understand
October 31, 2014

Apparently I don’t understand

U,

Who

Me?

Or

Is

It

Just

I?

Or is there

More than meets

The eye

And isn’t

What it seems?

R.i.P
October 30, 2014

R.i.P

Today is interesting
Symbolic sight
Takes flight
Cardinal
Not sin
Bird of pray
Cloud formation
On my way
And already
There
Just flow
No need to force
The firewoman is ablaze
I know it’s coming
Not sure how
Montreal connection
1989
Matrix
All heading
In the same way
Eerie cry in the morning
Word of the day
A synchronous play
Of what?
Death
May not be
What I think
Time will tell
And trust me
I will say
More
Soon
For now
Open heart
Is an
Open mind
To receive
Deliverance

The Heart Chakra-ra-ra-ra – T he L onger V ersion

This is an actual dance I shared with someone

Done as a duo

But definitely a solo act as well

So personifying

The

Me

We

Symbology.

Cry baby, cry! or There is no shame in crying…can’t decide the title…
October 24, 2014

There’s no shame in crying
Whether a boy
Or girl
Man
Or woman.
There’s no shame in crying
Because your hurt
Physically,
Or emotionally.
There is no need to suck it up,
Let it be,
Let it out.
There is no shame in crying
In front of someone
You love,
Someone you love
That doesn’t love you,
That you don’t know,
Or may have just met,
Even a stranger on the street.
There is no shame In crying
And sharing your tears
There is no shame in crying
For loss,
For grief,
For sorrow,
For just the sake of crying.
There is no shame in
Crying behind closed doors
There is no shame in crying
In someone’s arms
There is no shame in hiding your tears
There is no shame in crying
Because you can’t understand
There is no shame in crying
Because you don’t know how to not to
There is no shame in crying
For joy,
For gratitude,
For life,
For grace.
There’s no shame in crying
Follow the flow of your tears,
They are part of your heart.

En-lighten-ment
October 14, 2014

I will

Know
When
I am
‘Enlightened’
Authentically
When your words
No longer hurt me
Nor your deeds
Nor my memories
Or my own thoughts.
But when
I can stand
In front of you
And me
And smile
From my heart
Unconditionally.
I will feel
If it’s possibly,
Because
I will no longer
Be weighed
Down,
Or cling to
Emotionally
Charged
Toxic waste.
Letting go,
Passing through
Will
Loving do.

Vulnerable Fortitude
October 12, 2014

Wordplay

to start what

I say

Because one may

Assume a fortress

Is built

To protect,

This is

Opposite

Effect.

Torn down,

Obliterated

The walls

Have gone.

I cannot

Wholeheartedly

Say

I stand alone,

Nor have I

Done this

By myself.

That would be

A monumental

Lie.

Fortitude

Is not

About strength

As much

As it is a part

But more

Of an assurance

That you will

Never fall

Apart

Again

When being vulnerable.

So…let’s begin the actual dialogue

Now that I have pre-faced this

illiteration….

Unconditional Love
October 12, 2014

Is not just you
It’s everyone,
All of the above
And below,
Everything within
And without.
Totality
Commencing
With reality,
Being free
Able to see,
Comfortably
In equality
No conditions
Selflessly,
No time,
No space,
Just
Being,
Am.
