Know me first as first as human:
I breathe, I move, I think
I eat, I bleed, I feel
I sleep, I work, I cry.
Know me second as wo/man:
I’m palpable, I’m soft, I’m sensitive
I’m hard, I’m breakable, I’m concrete
I’m intangible, I’m abstract, I’m poetic.
Know me next as a specific person:
A singular woman in the world,
As unique and beautiful as you,
Searching for eternity and Truth.
Know me like you know the ocean,
Like you know grass, hills, sunlight-
To know the majesty of existence,
Is to love it, honor it, treasure it.
Know me like you know yourself-
The confusion, clarity, the complexity.
Accept what it truly you and you can accept
What is me and what is not.
Know me finally as energy:
Fusion, growth, metamorphosis, decay-
The Earth below and all that is beyond.
Search for your eternity and Truth-
Only then will you know me.
Energy knows God best
As a figment of its imagination.
Energy knows this energy best
When it enters into it-
As Adam first entered Eve,
As daylight first entered twilight,
As water first entered life,
As eternity first entered us.

Spider Flies and Angel Wings
I wrote these two books in the late 90’s as gifts to my loved ones. My sister and I actually worked on them together. I did most of the work but she did have some input. My boyfriend at the time, Jeff, created the cover art for Spider Flies and Angel Wings.
I only have Turning Illusions in front of me now. I’m reworking it to modernize it and make it less “manic”. Also, my goal is to add more meter and rhyme to almost all the pieces as they are very wild poems at this point. I’d like to tame them, fine tune them and make them more readable. I do appreciate the journey I attempt to take the reader on and want to explore that further. We will see how it goes. The possibility exists of adding these poems into my nonfiction prose piece I’m working on as reader breaks in the narrative. My highest hope and goal is that each poem develops into its own story and energy. I would love it if each poem was strong on its own and held deep meaning in and of itself regardless of the overarching story. Even though that’s where they will be placed for cohesiveness.

I hate your guts cuz I’m loving every minute of it.
Love on the weekend like only we can.
I want you baby like you can’t understand.
I’m busted up but I’m loving every minute of it.
I’m looking for a little love.
Love on the weekend.
Love above me, love below me.
Love to the right, love to the left.
Love within me, love surrounds me.
I am made of love and light.
In light and love I stand and have my being.
Today and always. So mote it be. And so it is. Amen.
