Eider's Gift

 

EIDER FEB 8914

 

Eider's Gift 

Into a galaxy of water droplets

Shaking off intergenerational fears

A sunlit, pink hue is cast

Merganser's Presence

 

Merganser's Presence

Merganser's Presence

 

Eyes looking out from green velvet...

Snowy white heart feathers

Proud red beak

Ballet wings opening

to the inner concert.

Protection

 

Protection

 

Protection

Protection in the crook of your alabaster wing

Protection in the stillness of the water droplets

on your iridescent green feathers

Protection in the sunlight shining on your faces

so close to one another

Protection in the visible and invisible

connections of light, water, stones and the air of your contentment.

Acoustic Fire

Acoustic Fire

 

                                                                                                            Acoustic Fire

Sometimes a song burns on the inside

Until at just the right moment

it hits my vocal chords

And then there is no turning back

Loving Kindness

Loving Kindness

 

Loving Kindness

 

Searching eyes, open to golden ripples

Ears listening, fur glistening

Tasting sunrise blue,

Traveling lake water,

Playing the soul's music

Purity of heart leading

Inspires fairytales

Bowing to sunlight

Conifer seeds within reach

One pointed focus

Inside gray feathers

Elixir of emptiness

The Holy Spirit

Alive and More Alive

Love looks many ways

as it dives ever deeper

and comes up refreshed

Veins mark the travel

raindrops pause for a moment

cobwebs show the path

Breath

Breath

 

Breath

If I breathe into you

and you breathe into me

we can hold our lives together with pine sap

We can feel the strength in muskrats, blue jays and Baltimore Orioles

We can pour tart cherry juice over vegan yogurt for breakfast 

We can send PhotoPoem cards to young people who are loosing their hold on this world going up in flames, disease and corruption 

We can keep washing our bodies and hair and cleaning our houses

We can keep practicing the movements of peace

We can keep going on scooter rides along the Kennebec River

and sitting in chairs way too big for vertically challenged people

We can keep making chocolate tofu pudding with black berries on top

We can rise with the sun and run in the moonlight

and be just crazy and healthy enough

to tilt the world a little bit.
