183 dirty feet

I chose
to clamber
the beauty in my life.

No mere

I chose
dirty feet,
grubby hands,
and a happy

182 mirror-mind 02

The parts of me

I learn them
in the mirror of
your eyes.

I embrace them
in my darkness
and my wildness.

I grow them
in the light
of your smile.

Those parts of me
not parts
but all.

181 new country

It is only when
Past the edge
Of what I know
That I
Stand a chance
Of finding
A New Country
For my

180 soar

How many time a day
Do I surrender to the wind?
And allow
My spirit
To soar?

How many times a day
Do I play it safe?
And make

There is no honour
In denying
My eagle soul.

179 complete

Looking to the stars
I realise
I am complete.

The light I shine
illumines the answers
to the questions I have never asked.

178 imperatives

You never have to tell a tree
to grow,
You never have to tell a stream
to flow.

A bird never grows tired of 
A fish never tires of 

Our planet revolves,
My spirit evolves.

Just the way it should.

177 seasons

As the seasons
bless the planet.

So do Cycles
bless my life.

Expansion, contraction,
Birth, growth, harvest, death.

Living in the present
I accept their gift and wisdom,
and yield to their flow.

176 ease

Some paths
flow smooth and clear,
untroubled by ripples or currents.

are carved
through the
rocky hardness
that spirit serves up
to give us
a backbone.

174 two-soul

This duality of me
dwells in

light and dark
good and bad
happy and sad

I surge and heave
in life and death

as my soul
crashes on empty shores.

173 island soul 02

Even in our
we are not alone.

The voices of a thousand thousand forbears
are written in our cells.

Their songs play out in our stories
in ways we cannot always comprehend.

Who we love
who we hate
What we choose to defend

All encoded
in ancient text in our blood and minds.

172 child of light

The stuff
I am made of
comes from the stars.

This body
houses a constellation
of galaxies and universes
which pulse and shine.

Who am I
To play small
And diminsh their light?

How dare I
Their unique expression
In me?

171 earthfire

In the secret depths of our Mother
a violent, passion is birthed.

Creative and destructive,
it breeches Her defences
and burns in its brilliance.

A crucible for potent alchemy
She blends and moulds
That which only appears

From the fires of her soul
She breathes
Vibrant life
Into Her Creation.

170 stardust

The music of the stars
pulses in my veins.

A galaxy lights up in
the neurons in my brain.

I am made for more
I have ever dreamed

My destiny
is limited only by
My imagination.

169 illumination

In the darkness of solitude
My soul
Is lit
Only from within.

Sweet moonlit love,
I reflect back
Your gifts
Presence and awareness.

Amplified, refined, purified.

Much more
One and one.

Churns and foams
Quieter depths.
Blessing with life
Carving with force.
Making something different
Of all that I am.

167 indurate

Life calls from me
What it takes to survive.

I can effortlessly flow
Into it
I can resist, struggle and writhe.

What wisdom lies in using
The skills
Of a sunny beach
On an ice-wracked shore?

166 abundance

My universe
Abounds with life.

And yet

In my darkest night
I forget.
And want and fear
Soak my mind and bones

Dance in the sun
