If you dream of stars
Then you will find your way in the dark
Moonlight will illuminate the most important things to see
Your eyes and heart soften as you accept the Mystery
Shine brightly your subconscious has said, take your place, sung strategem,
Count the sky crystals all you like, make sure to count yourself among them
The light/shadow of the future calls,
My body moves in lock step with time’s song,
Within the days yet to be
I clearly hear and see,
Pots of bubbling soup, wind chimes and child’s laughter,
Order from chaos, chaos from order, cyclical before and after’s,
Mentors and Mentees,
Abundant birds nest,
Moments of frenetic energy balanced with much needed rest,
Cups of tea
That line the seas,
Friends who are happy to listen and help as they can,
Rain, flowers and a trip to Japan,
Finding peace with Sisyphean boulders,
Young at heart, yet getting older,
All these and more the future holds for me,
I trust and into it I step, confidently.
We meet again in a crowded staircase,
This is the place,
Where I meet your blazing chilled stare with a smile,
I walk the labyrinth between us that spans light years of miles,
I have seen it before, slowly, the bricks will crash,
The walls, figments and flash,
I will be victorious
You will be in my past.

Jeweled feathers awaiting flight,
Silhouette unceasingly walking each labyrinth chamber,
Transfixed by holy other, familiar stranger,
Simultaneous bated breath,
Soar or sink?
I untether the velvet,
Birdcage heart door swings
“Prodigal flâneur” the bird sings
Many nights I’ve wondered since the attack, why us?
A shoe is responsible for what we now lack, why us?
How could a shoe destroy our entire family, why us?
We feel like we’re lost at turbulent sea, why us?
We don’t even know the color of the shoe, why us?
There must be a reason for what shoes do, why us?
We were shocked to learn that we are the shoe, we are the star, why us?
Unlocked from stagnation, freed from bell jar, why us?
Does your divinity dance in daring dawn dreams?
Create and commune in cave of citrine,
Vibrant violet velvet vine,
Warm water wading, wind woven words flow like wine.
Quizzical, did the quest conquer or just proceed question?
Let your remarkable roots rust,
In turquoise time we trust,
All to rise to be true,
Tortoise and tender new tattoo.
Is your feather free, your fire fine?
Fabulous freak, let the flag fly!
Thank the input, thank the insight,
Leap in the lavender lilac light.
Have a holy healing holiday,
Going knowing, all goals and growth are found in Grace.
The inspiration for this song is the awe, wonder and delight I feel for the human race and all those who have become friends along this journey that is life. To all of you, those I have met and those I have yet to meet:
This is where our paths do part,
Though I’ll hold you ever in my heart,
You are where I begin and end
and I’m so blessed to call you a friend.
I pray the light would reach you
Guide you and teach you
I send you all the love I can send,
I’m so blessed to call you a friend,
And I pray you’ll be as blessed,
Until the day so sweet, when our paths will cross again,
Our paths will cross again.
