    is the bookmark
    Holding the place
    Of all we are
    meant to do

    I’ve started to sing
    What these pages bring
    A sound that is brand new.

    The butterfly’s
    No longer too shy
    To show her patterns divine
    I give thanks to the breaks
    That told me to wait
    And held me till I came... read on

  • Modestly

    I don’t play hard to get, I just am.
    I do not play modest on purpose
    cause only intellectually do we exist in form.
    Maybe Gd wants you all to Herself.
    Maybe that’s what it’s all about, and
    You are being modest when you days that this is good.
    How can this love be in the... read on

  • what we are

    Ideal, hold this idea:
    I wonder what we are
    it’s effortless to twinkle like a star.
    Around me, all the Banshees Dance.
    and hide before a response can be given.
    but this is what I’d tell them, if they want to listen:
    all I want to say is what wants to be said.
    all I want to tell,... read on

    Standing on this ground
    Always having been
    Never haven known
    how to admit my woes,
    i feel the squish between my toes
    wishing myself on the side of right
    where serenity abounds
    until I land on higher ground.

    but there is love here, if I let it be there,
    so I welcome

    I open my mind and find you are here
    I trust that you are living in everything,
    everything’s always right here.

    I open my heart and find that I am
    beginning to find myself in everything,
    everyone thing... read on
