Going Deep

The phrase "keep it light" has been on my mind a lot lately.

We live in a society where we're taught to believe we should keep things light, airy, upbeat and quite frankly easily digestible at all times. Conversations, relationships, feelings, and attitudes are expected to be light and fluffy.

The Return of Persephone

Oh, Lady of Spring, Queen of the Underworld

You who balance creation and death.

Lover of the dark lord, and mother of the light

You walk among us Lady, showing us the spiral of the wheel.

You show us the need for time within to search our own Shadowlands and that when that dark night is through the time to walk in the light always comes.

Daughter of Stone

She is the daughter of pillars

From a lineage of women carved from stone

Their blood forged of fire and liquid steel

Their strength the foundation

Upon which she trains her shaky legs

To hold up the weight of the world.

Oh how she has learned to be closed

In a world where open is a wound left to bleed out

Let Us

I see you From the caverns of your aching heart To the marrow of your endless longing The layers hidden inside From those who could never see.

Let us not live in their world A whitewashed wasteland Void of the hues of love Begging for a sea of color Which can only be painted from our brushes.
