Once, I had a lover that twirled purple and blue in the darkness over me, he smelled of cloves and jasmine, I thought he was God. He thought I was unreachable. Once, there was an old dizzy man who read poetry to me all night long, his hands shaking, his eyes crying. I bowed my […]
vacuuming the cat is not a good idea !
There are three kinds of people, those who can count and those who can’t count
Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.
To sit at the blank page is to stand before the mirror. Is this me? What is real, what is creative whimsy? What to let go of, what to hold on to? Is ugly beautiful? Is beautiful ugly? If I screamed out my truth, would it touch you, if not, would I be indignant, offended, […]
thought that nature was enough Till Human nature came But that the other did absorb As Parallax a Flame — Of Human nature just aware There added the Divine Brief struggle for capacity The power to contain Is always as the contents But give a Giant room And you will lodge a Giant And not […]
“Little Ralphie” You are a bored child And a prancing devil~ You are an intimate artist ~ An aloof poet~ You are cherished and revered~ For what you are ~ And for what you are not~ You are a fool and a wise man~ You are an aristocratic ho bo~ You are an earth angel~ With sparkling […]
Somewhere an eagle flies soaring o’er the dappled skies of Africa Somewhere a tortoise cries ploughing through the vast disguise of Africa. A springbok dies and a day is born The sun comes up to greet the dawn; A child is sighing like a bird And a nation is sounding a very new word. Somewhere […]
Last Thursday night I could not sleep. At three in the morning I gave up and decided to stir around the house for a while. I generally write when sleep eludes me, but, not this night, not this crazy night! I was too restless, and far too wild for candlelit meditations or thoughtful prose. As I […]
I will pluck a daisy, Ponder desire in golden fields I will dance in honeyed surrender Pleading to unholy guilds I will swirl and fling my nature Upon the deepest hottest coal I will burn within the night The very portrait of my soul I will walk within misty shadows Verge the harbors lapping shore […]
Thankfulness is a fine art. If one can manage to move about the world in an attitude of charismatic gratitude, it is entirely possible to edge ever closer toward the full joy of true spiritual awareness. The wisdom of age ignites a passion within the truly wise ones and reminds us to embrace life, to embrace love, […]
To One in Paradise By Edgar Allan Poe1809–1849 Edgar Allan Poe Thou wast that all to me, love, For which my soul did pine— A green isle in the sea, love, A fountain and a shrine, All wreathed with fairy fruits and flowers, And all the flowers were mine. Ah, dream too […]
Aurora Musis amica. Dawn is friend of the muses
There is a kind of holiness in a newborn day, a round, rosy tinge of hopefulness that satisfies my soul and inspires renewal within my spirit. About one year ago, I began a simple predawn ritual of openheartedness. Long before dawn, I crawl out of my bed and make my bleary way to our house altar. […]
The word Belgian is generally used to talk about world-famous beer and chocolate, but not in connection with poetry. In a politically complex country such as Belgium it is almost inconceivable to talk about Belgian poetry. Belgian poetry does not exist. Or does it…
Her way is open, soft, and warm She visits now, before the dawn Mercy sings her tender song Sadness finds us right or wrong Sun drenched days of orange and gold With grace that never will grow old We dance within her sacred flame Ever grateful that she came
This spell is best cast on or just before the full moon~ Preparation: Bathe in a warm sea salt bath Cleanse your magickal space Dress a pink or white candle with your favorite oil/oils Burn cleansing incense like patchouli or dragons blood, or simply light the corner of a dried sage leaf and “smudge” your […]
There is much folklore and legend associated with the Witches Familiar or The Familiar Spirit. I will leave the research up to you and speak from my heart. For me, “A Familiar” is simply a witch’s truest friend. Witches have long been known for their deep association and fondness for their animals. My strong suspicion […]
Circle `Round the bon fire heat~ Merry Part and Merry Meet~ Fetch the loaves and stir the brew~ Clutch the witch that stands by you~` Kick up your heels and stomp your boots~~ Burn the herbs, and boil the roots~ Light your candles, sisters dear~ Linking arms and chanting clear~ Goddess! Goddess! Shine your light!~ […]

Embrace the Witch She is real and warm Truth Her pots bubble before dawn Simple She is intimate in charming ways Bewitching/enchanting/sensual She has ripened beneath sun, wind, clouds Wise She cares for tender things Compassionate She croons the rampant babes; she holds the frail hands of the dying Vigilant She binds, bends, splits, weaves, […]

This is the SAD truth!
Ain’t they cute?
