Presence calls me,
‘Sip with me from goblet
Dine with me this feast
Exalt here
Touch life song
In the ear of your heart
There is no need to fast any longer’

I respond
Drink freely elixir
Feast in revelry
Lyre imparts sweetest delivery
I am fulfilled
Broken fast
Savoring it’s richest dessert, a smile

Small little me just doesn’t fit anymore
It cannot sustain the vibrancy of my beingness
It cries out when I am ready for adventure
It crumbles when I am ready to soar
It suffers when I’m in the thrall of innovation
It drops into fears, I flourish in unknown
Dreams with no direction wasting time
It is innocent in its ways, yes
I touch it’s cheek tenderly in understanding
With love I embrace it into safety
I love it as a part of me, yes
And it just can no longer drive
Small me doesn’t have wings
I do.

Dancing feverish across sky
Feeding life with its brilliant fire
The time has come for sun to sleep
In rebellion it flashes red
Teasing clouds
Taunting skyline

Indigo trumpets arrival
King and Queen of night
Emerge most regal robes of deep sea black
Scattered in reverence stars echo fanfare
Sun yawns and blinks in harmless expire
As royalty tucks it safely goodnight

Goodnight

Crest etched on inner walls
Emblazoned from generations before
How to honor it’s heritage
While claiming my own
Can be done by sacred story
Barefoot pages
Calling of conversation
One that confronts every shadow
Every halo
Each reflection, it is mine
Rule breaking
System busting
Community aim
Hover
Rooting
Within words
Traveling core to light words that connect
