* Becoming *

eternal
sunshine –
melting my heart –
from this life and beyond
is where i start –
my breaths are slow
i hail my essence, and with
this glow i am bestowed
with Spirit’s presence,
a gift to grow

my own Being
present, these ancient eyes
ive seen before such
Truth and lies;

so here i ask
my arm extended –
what is it for me
this time, intended –
my fingers stretched
to brush
the heavens
and fill with Love –
a gentle flow
(the gift upon others i bestow)
because the Truth
is what i know –

this life is a glimpse

full reach, and yet –
these fingertips brush what
cant be reached

still i …

BECOME

what is meant to be
as Love, so gently, wraps around me –
and i – accept this gift, and share
even when some
cant see or are scared,
i expand, and move forth, you see –
i am one from Eternity –

and Time has come:
spun, to lift

this world into Light, from its drift..
while still keeping eye
on kingdoms of deep
the ones just so close –
beneath our reach

because they speak –
they bless and keep –

those who listen
softly guiding
with whispers through wind, even

when we fall-
and TRUST becomes

our only call –

because THIS, we know, surrounds
us all …

 

so my arm extends
with roots and tree
for ancient mountains once covered
by sea

praying to stay
in warm embrace
as my heart begins
its next big race

When It Was

It already makes me feel old to say I remember the world before instagram or hashtags, or even facebook (let alone the internet), even though I’ve spent the majority of my life so far without instagram or twitter or facebook, and even the internet – which makes me feel like Gandalf in this sentence. But I had the privilege of growing up in the 80’s/90’s as the last generation who remembers a world glorious as this one, where we managed one self and that was our physical one. To make things more horrifying, most of these things didn’t even exist seven years ago in 2008 (no instagram or twitter, no hashtags, and facebook was still in infantile stages and mostly for crazy social outcasts who didn’t have a myspace account); this is how the world was just seven short years and an eternity ago.  This was the distant past – when I picked up my life and moved it from Redwood trees to Raider Nation – when I began what I called “the city chapter” and found myself stumbling into a strange future.

I find myself longing these days, often, for a life before this time when we didnt carry the world in our pockets; where if we woke up alone, we were actually alone until we chose to make contact with the world – instead of reaching for a portal on the nightstand where the world impatiently begs our response; where there wasnt a separate identity hiding in the palm of everyone’s hand, a separate self needing to be managed; where I could disappear for a day without communication and not set loved ones into crisis mode. And here I go feeling old again, already – longing for good ol’ days.

How the world has changed in just seven years. And how strange it is.
