A Poem Entitled: Close to Me

As I close my eyes, your lips touch mine

The cosmic explosion between my thighs

Natures elements confound

Do you hear the sound?

The earth is whisk through the air

The ground I once danced upon has disappeared

Fire, you cradle me with your warmth

As the stormy sea tries to tear us apart

A pirates search has come to an end

For the treasure found, a million men cannot comprehend.

My Day

My days aren’t filled with major breakthroughs and accomplishments. For example, today I did my daily devotion, yoga, went to the bank, came home; in between that time read a little and crossed off about 7 activities on my to do list of today. Now to me that is very big because all those activities are very important to me. To another person it may sound dull. I always come to a pause when the question of what did you do today comes up. Here is my preferred answer, “What did I do today? I was awaken with life and I spent the day being most grateful, humble and happy. What did you do today?”

Aside

Question

To cut ones hair,

Is it an act of Confidence? Self Acceptance. The phrase: my hair isn’t what makes me beautiful, so deal with it!
Or merely a plea of Emotional Distress. The idea that: my ex loved my long hair, I need to get rid of it or I just won’t get rid of him.

Slow down

Realizing that these are the last days of the year 2014, I decided to bask in the beauty of the moment instead of being consumed by the demands of the world. I challenge you to do the same.
