Poetry: Thanks for the Churning

Reading Time: 3 minutes Saturday Poem
My Thanksgiving gift to you!

Thanks for the Churning
 
 
When I was a little girl
I would clap in delight
at the alchemy taking place
as milk turned into oatmeal.
 
Mom did not seem to find it
as fascinating as I did.
Her eyes had become
blunt instruments,
unable to see the miracles
that churn day into night,
clay into creatures
and lamps into stars.
 
As I grew up I too became blind
to the wonder
of this stunning world.
I forgot why I had chosen to be born again.
The world is so beautiful!
 
I walked the streets at night
afraid of the shadows,
seeing trees as harbors for danger,
failing to see the full moon above
or the magical lights below
slithering trough the tracks
like flying serpents or fire-spitting dragons.
 
I could no longer see the rainbows around people.
I could no longer hear the poet-trees whispering poems in my ears.
I could no longer smell the fragrance of spirits coming to visit from the other world.
I did not really touch the world: the velvet in the rose, the silk in the leaf.
No longer did I reach out with the tip of my tongue to kiss the sweet, sweet rain.
 
I had been dimmed.
My magic […]

Prayer: I am supported

Reading Time: < 1 minute Sunday Prayer
I am supported
 
I am supported by The Divine
expressed in each breath of the Universe.
I am received by this universe
for I was born to expand it
through my gifts and my presence.
I am needed, received and appreciated.
I am funded by the universe.
Everything I need to deliver my purpose
is being delivered to me right now.
I open my mind to recognize it.
I open my eyes to see it.
I open my heart to receive it.
I open my hands to hold it.
Thank You.

Poem: Building her Case

Reading Time: 2 minutes Saturday Poem
Building her Case
 
She was building her case.
Soon she would be facing them.
And she wanted to make sure
that she’d have enough evidence
that she was who she said she was.
She had been working all her life.
She had a track record.
A resumé.
She had witnesses galore.
 
But you know how these things are.
They are not like you, those judges.
Those who make decisions are not among us
and they do not understand us.
They do not respect us.
They do not know us.
They do not understand the hardships we’ve grown through
or the amazing odds we’ve had to surpass to do what we have achieved.
They do not see us in our beauty.
Instead they see “the other;”
An unknown not to be trusted.
I don’t have to tell you how it is.
They minimize us.
They ask three times the documentation from us
just to give us the leftovers.
 
So as she prepared to be evaluated
to be given that job, that loan, that apartment, that scholarship, that title;
She went into fighting mode.
She knew this mode.
It had served her all her life
to make sure that she was given what she had earned.
 
She was building a case.
But inside, […]

Poem: The Song of Grace

Reading Time: < 1 minute Saturday Poem:
 
The Song of Grace

 
 Sing it. Clap with the words. Enjoy!

 

Don’t run, dance!
Dance! Dance! Swing!
Swing! Swing! Drum!
Drum! Drum! Sing!
 
Why go through life
with rush and routine
when you can ride
the magic that is?
The magic that shines
in all that is.
The magic that comes
deep from within.
The magic that is
your Sacred Being.
 
Don’t run, dance!
Dance! Dance! Swing!
Swing! Swing! Drum!
Drum! Drum! Sing!
 
Why go through life
with grief and hunger
when you can create
all that you long for?
You are the creator
You are the star
And you have the grace
to live the joy
the joy that lives in
your Sacred Being.
 
Don’t run, dance!
Dance! Dance! Swing!
Swing! Swing! Drum!
Drum! Drum! Sing!
 
Laugh it out loud!

Poem: The Search for Greatness

Reading Time: 2 minutes Saturday Poem
 
The Search for Greatness
 
She longed for it as she longed for the next breath.
That Greatness.
But when she attempted to walk towards it,
she felt like a little girl inside mama’s big high heels.
Yet, how alive she felt
as she gave each wobbly step!
 
Yes, she was scared.
She often thought “I must be crazy!”
After all, must people around her thought
that she had lost her mind reaching so high.
What if they were right?
 
She carried a huge, heavy bag of doubts.
It had was torn at the bottom,
so that at every turn, on every big move
a stream of doubts escaped
and threatened to drown her.
 
They muffled her voice.
They made her slip and fall.
They pushed her into dark places.
 
At these times she had to stop
and mend the seams of her bag,
hunt down the scattered doubts
and dump them back into the bag.
The labor was grueling.
It slowed her down.
It made her wonder if
she would ever get there…
To that place of Greatness.
 
And one day like every other day
she woke up with the clear realization
that she was that Greatness.
That she had been born into it.
That she was made from it.
That it unequivocally […]
