we made it!
30 days of poems.
thank you for coming along for the ride <3
in this month of committing to one thing- daily poems
i have learned muchly about myself.
in the process of this Practice
things about me
and my relationship to myself
have risen to the surface. been viewed. softened.
i have a tendency to hold super high standards for myself.
i can be my own drill sergeant- hard ass.
there have been a few days this month (yesterday included)
that i was not able to write my poem.
thru this Practice- and the dialogue with myself that came with it-
i was able to soften the parts of me that are oh so too rigid sometimes
and decide that when i meet resistance (at least in this way)
it’s ok to break the rules- especially my OWN rules
and shift a little IN to another direction.
IT’S TOTALLY FUCKING OKAY!!!
to take such a gentle practice
one that i had fun doing
and be able to use it to connect with. soften & emancipate parts of me. . .
has truly been amazing.
thank you for witnessing my process.
on to the Last (for now) Poem of National Poetry Month 🙂
(imagine how many cool poems were written this month!! and how much insight experienced!)
since it’s XXX
i’m gonna have to write a sex(y) poem.
as some call it
is the experience of deep connection
when partners unite
and their combined energies
the breath circulates
weaves us together
as we move
our voices carry In and Out
the exhale of our release
the inhale of our magic
the fountain of youth
our bodies as the chalice
creating and holding
the most magnificent nectar
to be shared
the chalice fills more and more
till it overflows IN to life itself
beyond the bedroom
beyond the sexual experience
and in to everything
to fill the chalice
and keep it full
is yet another kind of commitment
one ~full~ of deep ecstatic pleasure
joy and magic
the commitment is to yourself
your willingness to BE fully
to trust & love completely
to know and lean in to Intimacy
are you ready for THAT commitment?
do you want it?
Intimacy starts w Self.
i recorded this one for you <3
