Rumors of Storm
Rainless night, but sky stirs with hints and rumors of storm; lightning dancing mischievously above horizon's distant rim. Untamed atmospheric illumination summons wild thoughts and psychedelic memories; soundless lyrics and rhymes reach across incalulable angles, reminding me of magics I'd nearly forgotten; Deeper Magic affirming It has not forgotten me.

Hints of the Magic
These words serve as meager vessels, striving to momentarily convey hints of the Magic, vast glorious domains of transformative meaning far beyond boundaries of mortal perception.

Rhythm Unbroken
Echoes of Rhythm Unbroken pulse and reverberate from far beyond unseen borders. Deep calls to deep, bidding what was buried long ago within me to reclaim forgotten destiny, to rise again in harmony with ancient purpose.

Dance of the Universe
I find myself yearning for those peculiar experiences that modern language lacks words to adequately describe, when the Dance of the Universe may be glimpsed through shifting tides of illusion and shadow. Seeing with more than eyes, echoing with deep resonances yet to be translated into sounds, rhythms that stir the marrow of mystic and mage, that make the ears of all true prophets tingle. Being transformed, having consciousness ever altered by visions eagerly waiting articulation, by signs and wonders pregnant with meaning.

Other Wind
The Other Wind whispers through bare winter trees, arousing prophecies of green destiny waiting to unfold. The Other Wind echoes distant memories, evoking ancient hunger, deep yearnings we cannot yet name. The Other Wind flows over mountain and under rainbow, carrying conspiracies of color to summon wild chaotic visions, revealing unseen dimensions, awakening minds from long, deep slumber.

Not Yet Fluent
Crying for help, sounding repeated alarms, but those who see and those who hear are not yet fluent to decipher the subtle and indirect language of my peculiar despair, this unique, inarticulate ache that I cannot yet myself understand or begin to describe.

Promise and Prophecy
Her eyes silently express meaning, rich mixture of ideas and feelings which no words are yet ready to carry. Her gaze inspires songs of sublime mysterious beauty, resonating with what dwells within her sensitive yet mighty heart. Her smile embodies promise and prophecy, depths of love and vast fields of vision that summon new worlds into being.

Days of Exile
My tribe has been far scattered; these are days of exile. My people: dissidents, citizens of an undiscovered country, peering through cracks in existence to catch a glimpse of larger realities. Forced into shadow, compelled to hide in plain sight, we gather infrequently, seldom permitted to experience moments of authentic communion. Yet we persist, poke holes in the facade, leaking out bits of light and truth to sustain the remnant, souls who yet dare to believe.

No Other Path
My life would be much more simple and less complicated if I could stop falling in love with souls unable or unwilling to love me back. But thus far my heart seems to be one that can find no other path.

Embrace of Ancient Magic
Is there yet thunder in this sky? Do hearts still dream?   Stars still sing? Can words of true fire yet be spoken?  Raw energy forged into meaning, igniting possibilities to transfigure, to become?  What unimagined reality yearns to take shape? I reach in, receive embrace of Ancient magic, Eldest of this world, Eldest of any... I am held in peace from before the Before. In that moment, from that place I welcome approach of Future Uncertain, and find no room for fear.

In the Dark
In the dark, more afraid, yet more inspired; more anxious, yet more at peace, as shackles fall from imagination's perceptions.  Liberated from Eyesight's insistent preoccupations, awareness expands: reaching deep for vision empowered by no patterns nor waves of light, but echoing rhythms of intuition, distant memory of dream, now drawn tantalizingly near. In the dark, possibilities too feral, too skittish for daylight emerge, unfold, extend; reaching to brush borders of existence, straining to cross over, to become. In the dark, faith again finds me; wild, uncensored unrestrained beckoning toward shining ideals: bright singular c

Haunted
My memory haunted by her gaze, glimpse of spirit mysteriously familiar, old soul whose eyes are ever young. Neither untouched nor overwhelmed by devastating heartbreak, she moves in rhythm with melancholy verse yearning for what may be, with songs of joyful mirth savoring all that is. Brief moments I dwell as reflection in her eyes stand as encounter whose dimensions cannot be measured by any metric yet imagined: stepping outside Time's river, forever altering Destiny's flow.

Magnetic Poetry Compositions
Whisper with the storm. Kiss the gorgeous gigantic symphony. Urge life to be. Always ask why. Fight the power & shake the chains. Never inhale ugly philosophy. Do not let TV hottie manipulate you. Man need smart woman. Learning is essential.

Seasons Ever Turn
Many companions have I taken, inviting each to share next leg of journey long-traveled. Unspoken un-described kinship draws us to intersection: encounters we cannot leave unchanged. Recognition subtle but unmistakable, ears tingling in response to same whispering rhythms calling us forward to dance with knowledge and mystery, discovery and loss, to contend with nightmares in realms of wonder. So they enter my story, my life, my heart; for a season, wheresoever we travel is home. Yet as journey ever endures, seasons ever turn: day dawns when each confidant, each familiar must depart, to break her own uni

Breathe
Seek hidden place of quiet in this landscape of noise; seek moment of stillness in these stories of busy. Breathe in.  Receive what is most essential; embrace the gift, acknowledging spirit through which life is given. Breathe out.  Release everything constrained inside; loose the bindings, all you can bear no longer to hold within. Let it out. Be freely; freely be. Set course toward the melody that haunts you, weaving vision of all you are meant to become.

Distant Drums
Sleight of form, with nearly elfin features, appearing delicate to peripheral glance.  Yet gaze within; behold depths of her heart, force of her imagination: envisioning seeding conceiving anticipating birthing creating re-creating lives and worlds anew. Her beauty is as her approach to life: authentic, artistic, eccentric; unique, unorthodox, unbounded in what she can accomplish, what she may become. Our encounter unlikely, one few would anticipate; yet innately inevitable: our gazes fixed upon same far horizon, hearts beating in tune to same distant drums. She shines as star by which my cou

Summer 2012
This summer: I dreamed with androids of electric sheep, and stalked dark footsteps of a brilliant madman in London. I traded stories with a young queen, a ka-tet of gunslingers, several eccentric Japanese introverts, and a dead emperor; I conspired with Time Lords, and was immersed in dark furious streams of legend. I explored complex magicks of other worlds, found myself glimpsing more of the magic of my world, and noticed the magic glimpsing back at me now and again. I met a two- year-old version of myself, and was gratified that he seemed fond of the me I have become. I gathered intelligence on pow

Mischievous Melancholy
Don't withhold the sour; I need all its flavor. Stop erecting barriers between self and sadness; there is no life in Unending Happy.  It cannot imagine; it cannot yearn; it considers nothing outside borders of contentment. Seasons of satisfaction: sweet and necessary to my soul, but overdosing leaves me: Stunted. Numb. Without ache to envision what may become, without urge to reach toward what is becoming.  Eyes with no tears never twinkle. So play each note, dance every step, joy and lament into full incarnation: the sublimely wild rhythms of mischievous melancholy.

Unseen Architecture
Some may call her cursed, noting frequent pains and ordeals she's had to endure. Such a conclusion floats only in pools of shallow perception, failing to grasp this essential truth: that she carries no curse; she reveals it by shining her unique light into the dark. To discerning eyes her struggles expose what is bent and broken in our unseen architecture; her spirit stands in defiant opposition to much that is yet should not be. Inside her beats heart never made to fit within contours of this fallen world, but rather to break them, break out and break through, singing discordant harmonies whose resonance disrupts dark powers and pri

No Ear Yet Has Heard
Sister daughter, your mother asked I write for you a poem. But your poem dwells beyond my grasp, lingering in lands I have not imagined. I hear its song echo with harmony of distant star, portending griefs and joys, glories of a life to be lived with intention. I sense reverberations of its rhythm in watches of the night, mysteries of its heartbeat hidden in magic of moontide. Your poem is not mine to uncover; her lyrics will be on your heart inscribed each moment you live deliberately; each moment you stand before world, your self wearing her true face; each moment you dismiss whatever, whoever denies
