Heavy questions. [Jan. 10th, 2011|10:13 am]
a way out of here, by a place in eternity.
Answer me this: If all that you have is taken away from you, all possessions and all relationships and all knowledge and all intelligence and all achievement (and they can be taken away, and they will be taken away, for they are transient), what will you have left? When your mind and body fail you and your wealth and comfort are taken away, what will there be?

"That which you have will save you if you bring it forth from yourselves. That which you do not have within you will kill you if you do not have it within you."

On Myth [Dec. 10th, 2010|05:24 pm]
a way out of here, by a place in eternity.
[mood |contemplativecontemplative]

 I so often find myself confronted and frustrated by this mentality that religious myth is all a fairy-tale invented by something inferior to the rational mind. Why has the word "myth" been taken, in our culture, to indicate a lie? On the contrary, myth is the truth. It is not truth in the literal sense (as in, it is true that I am writing a journal entry right now), but in the eternal and transcendental sense. A myth is an immortal truth. It is a human attempt to present the intangible in a tangible way. 

"Truth did not come into the world naked, but it came in types and images. The world will not receive truth in any other way. There is a rebirth and an image of rebirth. It is certainly necessary to be born again through the image."

I feel so like a fish out of water in this strange time, devoid of meaning as it often feels, and my solace lies with writings that are so many thousands of years old...

Poem for Charlie [Nov. 29th, 2010|11:37 am]
a way out of here, by a place in eternity.
[mood |creativecreative]

she
who dares to capture grand helios' eye
as he throws his royal reins, pale and bright across the sky
with courage binds her heartstrings tight
before the god's receding light is swallowed
by the dark horizon and cast down into the mouth of night

as those who sing by dawn are silenced by the dusk
surrendering their living hearts into artermis' trust
she will seek among the feathered flock the lowly and the weak
all the while they tuck themselves into their breasts for sleep.

It's interesting that after years of neglecting this journal, I would coincidentally, and unintentionally, start this entry at 11:12 am (my birth time).

I suppose it will be a good tool for documenting my poems, my astrology writing, my drawings and my photography. So, henceforth, I will begin again.

empty each and every

let go of every pearl like so much rain into the sea

[mood |hopefulmoonbathing]

my luna, love, my muse, my mirror
in you myself reflected clearer
a formless face shaped by the tides, i wax i wane
i fill, spill over, die again
surrender under midnight blue and
give myself again to you, returning to
the water to be born and born and
born again
and again nursing on your salty sweet high tide of pain
you drop me on my knees, you wean me
off your silver heart with locusts and wild honey tea
be still now
please be still now for

i am become the endless sea.

[mood |content<3]

do you hear the snow against the window-panes, kitty? how nice and soft it sounds! just as if someone was kissing the window all over outside. i wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? and then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says "go to sleep darlings, till the summer comes again."

sometimes
i'll foxwalk around the house at night
with a flashlight
and shine it into the drains just to see what's down there
then
into the outlets, glinting on the copper wire
wondering if there's enough current there
to set myself on fire.

an empty cage for
robin redbreast to put

paper skin, paper thin rests on memories and tiny bone fragments
paper skin won't let you in, paper thin a spider's web of woven memories
lost in the woods at the rise of a waxing moon, you follow a trail to the sea of tiny bone fragments
the skulls of baby birds and hollow crosses leads to the paper skin of the ocean
paper thin - where you break in you'll be drowning.

[mood |determineddetermined]

my father and i
suffer from the same problem
we do not forgive

in '81 the
pope was shot four times in rome
by a turkish man

who kept repeating
"i couldn't care less
about life," and yet

was visited in
prison by the pope himself
he was forgiven

the pope agreed to
pardon the shooter before
his sentence was up

i choose to forgive
and i am sorry to those
whom i haven't yet

i've got a handle on things.
