Ask

Posted on October 28, 2017

Stand with me dear one and ask for what you want
Ask because you’ve never done it before
Ask because He may say no and so what?
Ask because He may say yes and then what?

Go left this time instead of right
Go right this time instead of left
Allow yourself the freedom to be fearless
Roar so the Lion can hear you

Step up and stand up
Even with your quivering voice
Let it quiver and shake
Shake the earth beneath your feet
and let the fear ripple out of your toes

For what else do we have but this moment?
Why wouldn’t want this freedom?
Why shouldn’t invite the dance?
Stand with me dear one and ask for what you want

Ask so your soul can rip out of your body
And begin to laugh again like a child
Experience freedom
The sweet sweet freedom
Of just being you
So ask

There is a softness

Posted on October 28, 2017

There is a softness that exists
between a yes and a no,
when a crossroads presents itself
You can wait here in this space
It is safe and unassuming
There is a softness that exists
before a man tells you I love you
You can see it in his eyes,
or the fold of his lips before he smiles
You can feel his heart beating as he moves closer to you
The words aren’t as important as the being
Here in this moment
There is a softness that exists
when you love someone enough to let them go
You look them over carefully one last time
You are savouring this moment before the release
The curve of his back, the softness of his chest,
the way his hands fold into yours
You say your I love you’s and let go
There is a softness that exists
when a woman is standing alone
Amongst tall buildings and cold pavement
The passing by of strangers
Women with their strollers, babies tucked inside
You touch your belly as if to say, “I’m sorry, I’m sorry”
There is a softness that exists
when you stretch open your body
and see the beauty that surrounds you
Gratitude for what is
Namaste this and Namaste that
You begin to see
All is fleeting, all is flow
Your heart at once beats for sadness,
beats for joy, beats for life

The Light Workers

Posted on October 18, 2017

There are those who go out into the world screaming for change
Screaming and shouting
Arms raised up in fists
A battle ensues
Love! they say
Love they do not show
Then there are those who go out into the world
with a quiet step
One step, two step
And allow the sun to fall gently on their faces
They move forward with their backs straight despite being beaten down
They have wings that only the 3rd eye can see
They are the angels of this earth,
the Light workers
Each a branch of love in action
Singing lullabies of forgiveness, performing dances of joy
