So, I go through phases of not being able to write any poetry at all.
But just recently, with spring coming in, I have just felt greatly inspired.
And two poems just flowed from me so freely that I don't even think I wrote them and some cosmic being was ghost writing through me.
But still, they bring me some amounts of joy so I want to share them!
I am among you, humanity
I dwell within
beating out your hearts cadence
coursing through your foggy veins
you are not without me
I reside in your breathing
in your eyes I twinkle like the starlihgt
so that when your lover looks into them,
they see themselves
they see us dancing
crisp evenings gone to the wind
I am the unheard song residing in your throat
warmth in your arms
the heat you radiate when your lover feels safe
I am the bags underneath your eyes
when you stop sleeping
because awake is the scariest thing you've done
I am the prints your fingers leave behind
evidence at the scene of your humanity's crime
I am the song you call out
the bird that carries it across the decades
across the suns shining
the moon glow
the ambient sound of the ocean meeting the shore
I am for you
I breathe you
I keep my eyes upon you
I settle in to watch you rise and fall
the dream catcher that caught us all
I dreamt of you
I can not imagine a moment in your absence
the pain of air uninhabited by your being
for I am miles away but never far
I keep every time you blink within a jar
and you awake
you move your flesh in forward motion for my sake
and I entrance
entreat the gods for you
and I surrender
I am the rain washing your dust away
and just to be the ground beneath,
just for that I stay
and I could call you sacred
to hear your voice vibrate the words
I cross beyond no measure
beyond no worthy lands
and make my home in your quiet laughter
my pleasure path
my eternal fountained beauty
in you alone I take up residence
I am among you
I dwell within
beating out you cadence
a paper bag of coffee cups
hard edges but soft to the touch
and I may never see this set of skin again in my lifetime
the need to memorize every line that you reside in overwhelms me
in one instance of absence then existing in the same realm of being as me
and i'm left reeling
and I am not myself
with no resolve to not be walking beside you for however long it takes
impatience is a trait trained too strong
but no more than expectations
I breathe to release them, let them drop like the walls of my reality
and I don't mean offense but your words are useless without form
and I take each sip with a grain of salt
but I can't help tasting the graditude
rising shamelessly but I let loose the useless pride
of a life not fully lived and waiting anxiously to be filled
with the light of extrodinary existence
topped with the disappointment of unfulfilled realities
that fall from us like petals and we are the stem
we change pots but not personalities
but it's the pleasures of immediate surroundings
that I can bear to leave well enough alone
and take steps in a different direction from the things I used to cling to
I think they call that growth
but i'm just pleasantly surprised
to tuck it quiet within me
the return to a world that doesn't begin and end with someone else's eyes beholding
what can't even be seen within me
I think they call that freedom
but to me it's connecting the dots but coloring outside the lines
of a safety we can't undo
so we grow a garden instead
an air we made breathable within you
So, yes, those are my two most recent poems that I am really quite smitten with!
My style is changing slightly, and my poems are getting longer. I'm into it.
And here are two pages from my new art journal.
I am trying new styles and exploring my expressions in this new journal.
I pretty excited.
Well, that is all for now! I am so excited for spring, it just makes me want to create so many things!
I am on an indie folk kick lately.
And a smoothie kick. I've been making mine with strawberries, blackberries, kale, greek yogurt, and a touch of honey! So good!
Until next time, be well!
