New Tanka and Haiku Poetry

Woodpecker Drumming
Hawk soars O’er a new moonshine
Like Mercury in
Retrograde, Fox can be a
Trump Trickster that sells fake news

Let go of concrete
Logical/rational thought
Instead of being
Seduced/punched by your fears
Become your transformation

Picture calm, peaceful
thoughts that breathe fresh air into
your soul so you can
see Love and Truth that values
Equality and freedom

Is an Alien 
event coming to reveal 
new dimensional
challenge of looking at things
differently than we do?

A Full Worm Moon is
Coming on Spring Equinox
Robin gets its meal

Are you a programmed
sheep herded by big money?
See with your own eyes!

You can build a wall
But an old paradigm is
breaking down right now

Till Next Time Peeps,


Springing Forth On The Wings Of Robin

Robins remind us that Spring is in the air –
Meditate on the perspective of an early bird getting the worm . . .

Early days of Spring are budding ahead . . .
Movement into light energies are rising!

Red Robin’s breasts symbolize masculinity –
Red brightens spirits like a hot ray of sunlight!

Energetically, a new zodiacal year is reborn . . .
A new season turns the heat up into a budding New Aquarian Age

But retrograde in the cosmos summon ghosts of yesteryear
Time to heal comfortably numb catacombs,
and release the possessive attachments of those old wounds

Here in American, Bernie Sanders ramps up the call for expanding Medicare
so that everyone has access to quality health care

Who’s going to pay for that?

The same folks funneling billions of dollars to the mega rich,
so that the rest of us are kept from having equal access to that rightful resource

We make work cool again when people have good jobs that pay livable wages,
and ideally have good fortune to have meaningful work . . .

When you do what you love, and love what you do,
Inner peace feels like a sublime experience worth sharing . . .

May we co-create a world with purposeful and meaningful work
that feeds our planet, and in return nourishes all of us!

Robin Raps Powerful Spring Lyrics of Rising Light, While the Base of Winter’s Darkness Fades to Black

A March Full Worm Moon waxes now until shortly after Spring Equinox
Robins abound as early birds get the worms

The seasons are changing . . .

Lao Tzu blows in with the wind echoing that “Nature is the best physician”

There are rotting logs, stagnant waters and familiar terrains
that leave us feeling secure and stable

It’s so easy to get stuck in the blues of muddy waters

But you can also leap onto a different Lily Pad and
a new reality might appear out of the thicket

Like the Equinox in Fall,
Light and Dark energies are on equal ground

It is natural to see equanimity play out in Nature
with masculine and feminine energies commingling
with the flitting of order and chaos

Can you hear the new winds chimes of freedom blowing in the wind?

But the anchored in old hooks of the Empire don’t want
to let go and relax their firm grip

Look at Donald Trump greedily grab and gobble up Big Money
Wait a moment and you will see Hillary Clinton at a Super Pac pep rally
program designed to keep the Billionaire Class in charge

Doesn’t this sound like a repeat performance at the Club folks?

Blazing new trails from that dying old world
is an Aquarian consciousness Bernie Sanders,
aligned with the power to the people movement

The buds of the disenfranchised are growing in numbers
We need to hear the spring in their voices without losing our minds to madness!

Stop doing the same thing over and over
with an expectation that something different will take place

Exhale your old habitual mental tapes and breathe in a mantra of oneness and
universal interconnectedness with everyone and everything

We have become comfortable with the status quo and
addicted to our old ways of doing business on Planet Earth

Band aid life support systems are losing their stick

What new flowers want to grow into your consciousness?

May creativity come blazing in to express their energies in your direction
through the eyes of positive interpretations and silver linings!

See you up the trails,


Singing With Robin

I remember us receiving tweets last week from Chickadee reminding us to gently sing truthful songs of freedom. Perhaps not coincidentally, while out on the trails, I caught wind of a harmonic convergence between Robin and Chickadee. In their diversity, I noticed their unity when competing for food both peacefully and cooperatively. I don’t know if they particularly liked each other, but they didn’t seem to carry an air of judging one another as either inferior or superior. Don’t you love feeling your consciousness take flight when seeing birds of a feather respectfully flocking together? Robin feathers our ripple by belting out a melodious song that Spring has arrived. Robin encourages us to sing spirited songs and get into alignment with our Mother’s budding spring energy. Although robins don’t always leave us behind when the food supply is plentiful, they are among the first of their kind to return. Robin medicine affords us an opportunity to see that something new might want to move into our lives. Their energy facilitates growth during the birth of a novel and creative experience. Developmentally, their lesson plan aids us in acquiring and accessing traits in the spheres of being daring, communication skills and musical appreciation. The rusty-red coloring of their belly hints at the kundalini rising. Potential conflicts over territory are resolved through song, thus their blue eggs are symbolic of our throat chakras. How many great blues singers had Robin totems? As a singer-songwriter and a musician, I am a late bloomer. But it is never too late and there is so much help waiting for us in the spirit realm. Spirited energies are wanting to manifest now more than ever. They are free access to resources for all of us to share and they are channeling through our powerful animal friends as preferred mediums.

We know that during our experience with Climate Change, there is dark and stormy weather inside that reflects in our outer world. Many folks find security in their consciousness by becoming identified with something to anchor themselves. But at the end of the day, we can only really stand in our own personal authority and become secure with that. Some folks say that we are doomed and that we have passed the so-called tipping point of no return. Tempting as it is to have a cow about that, did anyone out there catch wind of the news that if we start grazing large herds of livestock on 1/2 of the earth’s barren or semi-barren lands–we could take enough carbon from the atmosphere to return to pre-industrial levels, according to an ecologist, “carbon ranchers”, organic consumers and climate activists? From a brain-program developmental perspective, we humans have the capacity to move from the primitive reptilian part of our brain to the pre-frontal cortex. This is how we evolve into what some folks call Homo Luminous, or from our more demonic selves into our more angelic selves, if you will. From a soulful place, this is what our awakening process reveals to us in our walking meditation. In Maine, a Healthy Kids Act is being considered to protect kids and the environment from chemicals of “high concern.” We are what we eat, in our spirits, our minds and our bodies. Consuming the energies of a New Moon on this Wednesday, Earth Day on April 22 and a Full Moon on the 25th can help facilitate the digestion process during our shifting tides. Becoming secure within our own personal authority by staying rooted is powerful medicine to ingest right now. When we stand in this space in our Being, we reduce pollution and sow the seeds of Love and Truth that will light our way into co-creating a Heavenly New Earth, Golden like our eighth Chakras.

I am reminded by the wisdom that our “intentions from the heart do have the power to change the world.” In that light, a most satisfying mind-soul dance step happens when we open up to allowing our heart’s sun and venus to shine out and amplify our heartfelt connections with one another. Growing up with a parent with clinical depression, I felt suffocated and needed to build a protective fortress around my heart. But with a super-sized energy field, extreme empathic sensitivity to the feelings of others and a security in my intellect, a part of my heart leaked blood for psychic vampires to feed on. Given that I indulged in their indulgences, coupled with my built-in anger, I became comfortable with my familiarity of victim consciousness. This Spring, may we allow the light to illuminate the shadows by all of us manifesting an internal spring cleaning, a la out with the old, in with the new. Imagine if the movers and shakers of the world collectively concentrated their energy on building green classrooms, where music classes took place in green-house like facilities, where robins were teacher’s aids in carrying out music lessons. Forget about band and chorus. Now isn’t that sound of music a harmonic convergence to our ears?

Spring forth the Equinox: A New Generation of Growth

“We are called to assist the Earth to heal Her wounds and in the process heal Our own–indeed to embrace the whole Creation in all its diversity, beauty and wonder.”–Wangari Maathai

I remember when Our ancient ancestral wisdom spoke of 2012, give or take–albeit in the grand Cosmic scheme of things in this “world of 10, 000 things” right Tao is but a speck and yet paradoxically eternal.  However, here on Mothership Earth, We are in an exciting time of transition in Our classroom.  Yes, We are coming out of the birth canal and experiencing the labor pains that accompany this transition.  I have heard it said that a mass exodus of souls and energies are flooding our planet right now to facilitate and co-create Our transition into a New Age and Paradigm.  We are leaving behind an era of gurus and Messiah’s and moving into a time of individual authenticity and global community, a la diversity within Unity.  Indeed, We are letting go to our addiction to the destruction of  Our Mother, fundamentalist allegiance to the Almighty Dollar and Orwellian control by the “minority of the opulent”, or “the powers that were”.  My spirited dance and plea to the top dawg 1% is quite lightheartedly detached and simple vis-a-vis the lyrics, “there’s enough and We can all win”.

Collectively, humanity stands at the doorstep of a New Age and Paradigm.  If We are to survive as a species here on Our Mothership Earth, the time is now to co-create a new generation by evolving into Our Luminosity.  Really, I get a buzz (without a stinging hangover) and internally lit up merely imagining the possibilities of manifesting Our human potential.  Wood You Bee Leave that we already have the essential ingredients encoded within Us–whether sweet nectar, life enhancing chlorophyll and the capacity to effectively cut back to Inner Peace?  I can hear the Master Yoda in me asserting, “for my ally is the Force (Chi) and a powerful ally it is . . . life creates it . . . makes it grow . . . it’s energy surrounds Us and binds Us . . . Luminous Beings are We . . . not this crude matter . . . You must feel the Force around You.”

In saying “peace out” to Winter and “what up, G” to Spring, We compassionately heed Mother Nature’s soothing reminder that Her seeds underground are excitedly thinking about budding and blossoming a New Generation of Life.  I can hear Robin singing gleefully to the melodious tune of adventurous New Growth, blazing new trails as “the early bird gets the worm.”  During Our cross-pollination and subsequent flowering of human consciousness process, might We allow Our Selves to become the silver lining and make only positive interpretations of Our prophecies that say the Critical Mass will come about and allow Us to stay afloat in Our expanding Sea of Consciousness?  Aye, “this is the time of solar balance.  The Sun and the Earth are in perfect alignment.  Days and nights are the same length.  This represents Our receptive and Our active aspects being in balance, male and female.  Mother Earth’s energies in Us are awakened by the Father Sun energies being in balance.  This is a time of renewing and rebirth.  We have resurrection of Our own Spirit and Our growth, which has come through the Winter.  It’s a time when the trees begin to bud out and show the growth and the promise for the New Year.”  While meandering O’er mountains and streams and dancing to the heartbeat of the forests, the Rabbit energy in me says, “lettuce take joyful comfort in being part of Nature, while staying connected to Her as a carrot of trust, so that We May take the Quantum leap forward.”  Given that the Law of Impermanence reminds Us of Life’s transience and the sobering reality that there are no guarantees, why not seek solace in staying on the hop while noticing continuity within change and the cyclical Nature of the Cosmic Wheel?

As Spring approaches, I awaken my budding words of Love, Light and Laughter in this changing world with recognition that the Sun, Moon and Earth naturally look after One another just because it is Nature’s Way, while in perfect alignment together as One. Further, I am trying to express my own New Generation of growth to reflect the ancient spiritual wisdom “so within as without, as above so below”, if you Will.  In the spirit of that, I would like to share with You a prayer I say bright and Squirrely every morning during my meditation puree:  “We call on God directly, Archangels, Higher Angelic Beings of Light, Ascended Masters, Illuminated Ones, Gatekeepers of the Akashic Records, Spirit Guides and Animal Totems, Mother Gaia, Ancestors whom have passed on and all those who walk in alignment with Divine Will, Divine Plan and the Blueprint of Love.  We ask for your continued support and guidance in working through Our Inner Tapestry, allowing the light to illuminate the shadows so within, as without, as above, so below.  And for all your help along the Way, We thank You . . . We thank You . . . We thank You.”

I Hopi You are well,
