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.

I AM STILL HERE by Janavi Held


This was composed by a very gifted and beautiful soul: a regular contributor to our poetry project, and dear friend of mine, Janavi Held, whose life is gradually being taken from us by an incurable illness. She has been suffering from Complex Regional Pain Syndrome and Internal Adhesions for six painful years now, and neither her insurance nor the government healthcare will help her. She reaches out to us, her sisters, as a last plea. This is a poem she wrote yesterday on her birthday, in which she offers us the gift of her friendship. May it touch your generous hearts and inspire you to reach out to her in her plight.

Dear Friends,

The last time I was able to leave the house was by ambulance on my way to the hospital. After many long hours in the emergency room I was admitted and taken upstairs. After everyone left I sat on the hospital bed, knees to chest, bracing my body against the pain and trembling.

The light of this cold day was fading. I turned my eyes to the la…

THE JOURNEY by Mary Oliver

Today we honor Mary Oliver (1936-2019) and all the words she left behind. May they inspire you on your journey! 

Excerpt from Mary Oliver’s book Long Life: Essays and Other Writings:

"Poets must read and study...but, also, they must learn to tilt and whisper, shout, or dance, each in his or her own way, or we might just as well copy the old books. But, no, that would never do, for always the new self swimming around in the old world feels itself uniquely verbal. And that is just the point: how the world, moist and bountiful, calls to each of us to make a new and serious response. That's the big question, the one the world throws at you every morning. 'Here you are, alive. Would you like to make a comment?'"

The Journey
By Mary Oliver 
One day you finally knew what you had to do, and began, though the voices around you kept shouting their bad advice-- though the whole house began to tremble and you felt the old tug at your ankles. "Mend my life!" each voice cried. But y…

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…
