take a chance today
feel the fierce exuberance
welling up inside you
give yourself permission
to color outside the lines
with every crayon
in your box (and then some!)
climb to the tip of a crescent moon
and dive headlong
into a waiting sea of rainbows
throw away the safety straw
you've been sipping through
and take great gulps
from the cup
of your beautiful life

return to center

i find myself craving
a return to center
a center with margins
with room to grow
protected womb-space
hushed and holy
a sacred place
where dreams can ripen

the woodpecker

a downy messenger
came knocking on
grandmother cedar's door
[every tree is a door]
in her beak, this invitation:
find your rhythm
find your rhythm
keep pecking away
at every deception
until truth is revealed
listen to your body's wisdom
protect that which is sacred
the womb of your creativity
hear the echo of
your own heart beating
home is within
home is within

coloring outside the lines

there she is again
that dark haired woman
from my dreams
the one who insists on
coloring outside the lines
