Philosophia

Wisdom in each heartbeat pulsing through my veins Mending every sorrow, comforting each pain. Wisdom in each blood drop healed by Mother’s kiss, Or her tear, or stroking, or her embraced bliss Wisdom in each longing reaching from my chest, Passing through the vastness, to her ear to rest. Wisdom in each flushing—flustered, nervous, shy— […]

Shattered Spectacles

Temples made of glass are buried in the ground Churches made of clay where cornerstones are found Porcelain scriptures are holding up the arch Splintering tokens are moulding frail the heart Shattered spectacles, kaleidoscope of truth Rusty microscope shapes confidence of youth Mirror cracked and chipped reflecting state of mind Standing on the spire is […]

This Is Canada

This is Canada. Soil be ripping up Water is dripping yep Forests we flipping up This is Canada. First ones we devastate Brown ones incarcerate White ones we insulate This is Canada. Rainbows are shining through But ignore white, pink, blue Each one they’re lying to This is Canada. Sorry a thick facade Hiding the […]

Mother to the Stars

With silver arms and midnight hands, she pulled in outstretched reach The lapping waves and hushed surf to bare the hidden beach. Deep from the sand, she formed a star and raised it to her breast And nursed it dear and tenderly, just as she had the rest. She helped it grow under her touch, […]

Flakes depart the clouds, icy arms extend, Float through quiet air, silently descend. Land on leaf and blade or the city street. Final […]

Patriarchal Squeeze

Rainbows on my shoulders as I’m cut down at my knees. Every door I enter I find locked with guarded keys. Each time my mouth opens, it is stung by swarming bees. Every bridge I’ve builded is engulfed by flaming breeze. Heartbeats shattered slowly in a patriarchal squeeze. Lungs are ever gasping as each breath […]

Bright Face

When I look upon her face, I see divinity. When I am alone with her, I feel affinity. Silver beams caress my face, and blue rays soothen me. As she passes sleeping earth, she nods approvingly, Gently guiding owl and wolf and ’possum, hare to see. Strength and pow’r alone she wields to pull and […]

Clapping at Rainbows

Sitting on my lawn chair as I gaze toward the sky. Clapping at the rainbows as I watch them float on by. Cheering on the unicorns as they dance in the street. Smiling at the glitter as it falls down at my feet. Shaking rainbow pom poms I have bleached a blinding white. Waving denim […]

Emergence

Peeking dawn disturbs the night Morning eyes welcoming sight Sleeping grass crawls from the snow Stretching seeds not far below Hatchling chipping at its shell Butterfly, its silken cell Lava seeps from earthen crust Twinkling stars from dying dusk
