As Far as My Eye Can Sea

 

As far as my eye can sea…

No other soul on the beach but me…

Here I lie on the edge beckoning this

shimmering teal sea…

She just greeted me, whispering… I’m near…

Her next wave, she shouted …I’m here !

I moved camp, abandoned it…

On this sand bar ledge …I sit…

As far as the eye can sea…

No other soul on the beach but me…

I’m really ripped…My ego’s stripped…

Of who I think I am…sitting in this sand

Far as my eyes fixed stare…

It’s calm and flat out there…

Glassy as a lake…except for the shore’s break …

So magnificent…Oh My God…My spirit sighs…

Oh My, Oh My…It sighs…

One lone pelican just flew by…

For a moment there were two of us…

Now as far as the eye can sea…

no other soul on the beach but me…

As her tides rose…once again she kissed my toes…

I’m asking for a healing, with the love I’m feeling…

Why not…with a pure heart it’s sought…

In this vast space…My thought…

I’m asking a lot…

But I’m worth it…In a lotus I sit…

As far as my eye can sea…

no other soul on the beach but me…

May your currents carry my plea…

From my affliction, be free…

Seems reasonable to me…

One lone pelican just glided by…

Close…on the same level as my eye…

A unique creature…like me…

Alone by the sea…

Walking to the waters edge…

Telling it what I’ve said…

Oh my…I’m praying for a healing…

To let go of these feelings…

Big time…no rhyme…

I go fetal now…Trusting you great Tao…

I’m scared inside…watching the tide…

Three birds glide just above the surface..

Fishing as they fly…

There were three…working as one…

That’s how it’s done…

We are all one…not separate…but one…

One in love…One humanity…

That’s all you need to know…

It’s all about love…

Please, heal this situation…

Please, I’m begging in meditation…

Observe my contemplation…

Feel my heart’s palpitations…

On bended knees…I aim to please…

My Lord…with your razor sword …

Cut the ties that bind…

Love is the teacher, that reminds…

As it unravels…unwinds

Listen to your heart…not your mind…

Because deep within you will find…

What you want…not what to grind…

I know you know my every thought…

All along is love I’ve sought…

Joy and sorrow loves brought…

Without your love , I would wither, rot..

A big wave just erased the only evidence of me…

One lone foot prints disappears…as never there….

Life’s not always fair…but it’s close…

If it’s the truth you host…and value the most…

As I walk back through my steps…

I weave coming and going…

Live in the truth…be knowing…

The universe is constantly showing…

How much it cares…It’s important to share…

There’s enough for all…

In this vast learning hall…

As I sing a song…my heart’s call…

I’m still trying not to rhyme…

Don’t seem to be able to…that’s fine…

I’m still begging for this healing…

Plea-bargaining with God I’m dealing…

It’s all about Love , that feeling…

It’s all about love , that feeling…

It’s all about love , this feeling…

Grant me peace , Love and freedom for us all…

I Wish

 

Hey…A beach day…had quite the day today…

All I wanted to do was pray…

So much drama…Just wanted to chant…

Hari Krishna…Hari Rama…

Hari Krishna…Hari Rama…

Two grown men got in a tangle…

One went down…hit the ground…

Hurt his foot, got mad…

Giving every excuse he had…

To make it alright …to be uptight…

Then announce his need to drink…

Humm…it gave me pause to think…

All those dirty dishes in their sink…

No control over what one thinks…

It’s hard to play the game of life…

especially if you’ve lost some cards…

Not having a full deck …it’s hard…

Maybe someone thinks it’s full, but it’s stacked…

A conspiracy that’s wack…

All I wanted to do today was

to go to the beach to pray…

No drama…just chant Hari Krishna …Hari Rama …

A malfunction of my computer cord…

Need it for the camera , Lord…

To send my photos back home…

To the ones I love…I hold sacred, above…

The ones that nourish my heart…

Its hard to have distance…apart…

But I’ve come down to write…

Needing to taste the light…

Saw the breaching of a whale…

Signaled me, where to sit to write my tale…

Just saw a pod of dolphins swim past…

Pull out my binoculars…but nothing lasts…

It’s the National Geographic show…

Nature it’s cast…

Mercury is retrograde…What’s that mean…

I have two lighters…neither one works …it seems…

Miscommunications…

electric and mechanical things…

The beach is almost empty now…

I walk down to greet her…

This Goddess in her green with white lace petticoats…

Never ending gown of shimmering metallics…

Reflecting your light…

This moment in time …just right…

As I walk out of the waters

I pose with Mudra’s …like ancient daughters…

Observe my silhouette … by ocean waters…

I follow the footprints that lead back to me…

There’s no one else…you see…

Nowhere to go, but within…and shine…

To be quiet…to even high five it…

With only one hand…Sitting alone in the sand.

HIGH FIVE…NO JIVE…

It doesn’t get much better than this…

Except for the people I miss…

all to come see me I wish…

Lay in the sun…Eat fresh fish…

Swing in a hammock…and get a big kiss…

YES…that’s my hearts wish…

As I blow the seeds of a dandelion flower…

AS if that act has some kind of power…or blowing out the candles on a cake…or wishing upon a star…

I wish upon a star…

I wish upon a star…….. I WISH…

Just Us Four

 

Gathering together for another round—

Pencil in hand—going to write it all down—

Here we are in space and time—

About to exit the land of uncomfortable clocks—

We came together just us four—

Looking for that secret door—on the floor?

Where we together as a group—explore—

The older we get—we just want more—

Sailing off into the wild blue yonder—we soar—

My heart opens—grows fonder—

Sohum, sohum breathing out—breathing in—

Breath of life from within—

Takes us down the emotional spin—

Everything’s still—only movement in the room—

Dennis’s right foot tapping—in mid air—

Keeping time—to a silent song

A symphony she’s conducting—

It’s instructing—on an inner plane—

Letting go of our minds—becoming sane—

Sitting outside—on this fantastic ride—-

The sun said—

“See ya—see ya next year—same time same place”

It’s leaving that’s clear—sunrays quickly disappear—Leaving us cold out here—so gather our things—

Let’s go with-in—retreat to where we’re warm again—

On that note—let’s find a comfortable place—to float-

OM Shri Sathya Sai—

I do believe—its time to let go—to die—

We are all ripped—really high—

All of us quiet—except for those sighs—

The void—empty space—

Knowing nothing—nothing’s knowing—

Buddha man—straight spine—

Looking for love—in all the right places—

It’s all black and white—

No beginning—no end—yang and yin—

In this room we spin—Andy feels like riding his bike—

I feel like dancing—moving—swaying in the night—

To the name of God—I rejoice in the nectar of the name—Letting go of our minds—becoming sane—shhhhhhhuuuuuu—shhhhhhhuuuuuu—

We worked on each others bodies—worked them smooth—We let go—of any bad news—relaxed—

We were—like when a kitten purrs—

shhhhhhhuuuuuu—shhhhhhhuuuuuu—

Andy wants pipes—yikes—he’s really ripped—

He’s psyched—smoked some more—

got up off the floor—

All together we danced—we pranced—

We moved—we grooved—

The smell in the kitchen—enhanced—

How mac and cheese brought us to our knees—

We’re so easy to please—she made us wait—what a tease—With effort and love—she’s gracious with ease—

This pencil we kept by our side—

So we could document this grand ride—

Together we were—With nothing to hide—

Each other’s guide—As we collide—

Into ONE—

What Fun!!!

The Vortex

 

Lucy in the sky with diamonds…

All of us gems

in this crown of jeweled indifference…

Diamonds…shine…all sublime…each unique…

Color, size and shape…

All of us gems in the rough…

Being polished by the tides…

No place to hide…

With the divine…our spirits…collide…

And on this ride… we slide into divine perfection…

It doesn’t get much better than this…

Being in a ocean of bliss…

Ebbing and flowing… all of us glowing…

We are praying… she is showing…

An opening into the portal…

To be part and parcel, in the vacuum of the…

Never ending source…

Left open the secret gates… left wide open…

Shimmering light flowed out…

Like liquid gold covered its surface…

The essence of our beings…

She exposed herself deeper…

Reams of pure teachings…

Poured into every cell of our beings…

Beyond anything ever seen…

More beautiful… as we lean…into this stream…

We wept in the universal heart…

To the center… we are all part…

No beginning… no end…

Nothing left to transcend…

Only pure light…

Just a portal… for the divine…

A portal from this world to the next…

It’s already planned… the whole thing…

God’s running the show…

In case you didn’t know…it’s all predestined…

The universe is just testing…

Here we are questing… for the truth to unfold…

………meanwhile………

Sitting in the asana of meditation…

Sitting in the asana of meditation…

Thinking of your guru’s lotus feet…

Om mani padme hum…Om mani padme hum…

Om mani padme hum…Om mani padme hum…

In the vortex we’d roam…

Finding our way home…home…Om…

Finding our way back home…to the Om…

Into the portal…of the universal teaching…

Beyond scriptures…beyond preaching…

beyond words…

Engulfed by the mother’s waters…

She teaches us her daughters…

At her shimmering lotus feet…

We would uncontrollably weep…

From her pure ecstatic love unfolding…

Returning to the source…

Do nothing …return to the source…repose be empty…

Watch while …ten thousand forms…

Return to the source…and not lose your way…

But in the center, you could stay…

Together we would focus and inwardly pray…

We could keep the gate open…

To your core…we’d come back for more…

In the vortex we’d soar…

Where nature abhors…

You get all the awards for putting on the best show…

As we stay in the flow…God knows…

In the vortex she swears…

Wants her friends to be aware…as they stare…

In the vortex she spins…being lifted by the wind…

She’s gifted…with her veils and wings…

She sings…at the feet of the lord…

In the vortex abhors…ebb and flow…

She also put on a good show…this goddess divine…

Who kept us in line…who writes poetry divine…

She shines…this queen of rhyme…

Waiting for the mother’s sign…

Of what to do and where to go…

You know…back to the flow…

That’s all you need to know…

Stay in the flow…watch how it swirls…

Look for Christ in the curl…

That’s what we did all day…

That’s how we prayed…us girls…

Todos Santos…
