The creative shakti flow of energies is feminine and giving...

This represents a divine flow inspired by Mother Earth and her abundant offerings of energies and spirit. As I explore the flow of life and various realms, transcendental moments, deep dark roots, and the beauty of the here and now on our precious planet, my spirits vibrates! I feel this vibration resonate with the greater Spirit: our unified spirit, our unified being, which vibrates way beyond what is immediately seen. 

"Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavatu" May all beings be happy and free! Aum shanti!

Free-for-all Kundalini
by Ava Bird

ah, up the spine
the kundalini rising
sacral chakra heart spinning
red and orange like fire
fast and pure
and still beating 
to the sound of
one moment to breathe
and clear
and sigh 'om'
loud and clear
time to fly now
time to pound the stone 
and get it out there 
and smile
big breaths 
big dreams
small steps
climbing big
back down to the earth again
her dirt and flowers
that primal soil
roots down deep
brimming with life
beneath the surface
this cosmic kundalini
in all of us
she the shakti
the goddess
life and breath
the goddess 
in us
is us
i pledge allegiance
to the goddess
creator and life giver
her infinite abundance
with freedom and justice 
for all.

MY HEART SEEPS by Edith Lazenby

Courage is not only facing fear, but also looking past fear, to see what lies it tells and truths it saves...
Sometimes I sit at a computer in trepidation. The house trembles and I wonder what I will find. 
Truth is not a fact or a feeling. It may rest on love’s heart and walk with integrity. It may stand beyond humanity in ways we can only imagine. Truth can be solid as earth and fickle as wind. But a wind can know stillness and the earth can crack wide open.
Tonight I found a stillness in a crack and managed to balance there...

My Heart Seeps
by Edith Lazenby
I cannot hold on And I cannot let go. I walk a path I don’t know. I feel moonlight But cannot see Its orb midst The cloudy cold. My hands tremble. My eyes tear. My toes wriggle To grasp earth. I want to stand Tall in the light Yet fear shadows all. Inside I crumble Under the weight I cannot shoulder.

IMAGINE A WOMAN by Patricia Lynn Reilly

This poem invites you to look upon yourself with loving kindness…
Gazing at your own true reflection, you will discover that everything you have longed for “out there” is already within you! I invite you to love your creativity fiercely. Faithfully plant seeds, allowing under-the-ground dormant seasons, nurturing your creative garden with love and gratitude. In the fullness of time, the green growing things thrust forth from the ground. It's a faithful, trustworthy process. AND it takes time and patience.  Blessed is the fruit of your creative womb! I invite you to trust your vision of the world and express it. With wonder and delight, paint a picture, create a dance, write a book, and make up a song. To give expression to your creative impulses is as natural as your breathing. Create in your own language, imagery, and movement. Follow no script. Do not be limited by the customary way things have been expressed. Your creative intuition is original. Gather all of life into your inner c…

DEPRESSION by Veronica Carpenter

Here goes my vulnerability A heart on a sleeve The typical person who looks at me May not see the same me that I live with daily The mind in the air, swirling with possibility When the darkness rallies/gathers/swirls When I am left to solitude This paper-thin garb unzips Here comes depression          
No I don’t want to advertise So flash a smile Those who are close get to see Through the veil, it’s really not that thick Circumstances in life like to stab at the rib Stumble, fall behind the door Shut out the world Feelings well and weigh down Strength hidden deep in the core So deep that sometimes it’s forgotten Here comes the darkness My old friend Sweeping through my every move  Doubts, fears, un-named masked men Oozing like honey, sticking to everything
Patience is required to get on this ride There is a cycle but its pattern is unknown Slowly my gift will unwrap itself Stay on the path Coming back to that which never truly left me Just laid sleeping out of exhaustion from the fight Dormant in winter…
