Attaching Wings to the Fallen Bird

Attaching wings to the fallen bird

Depravity of one’s true nature

Divided fowl’s appendage further segregated sun
hearts splitting in two — body and carnage remain

Source essence forgotten — reaching distance bemoaned
wings of hope fly directional opposition

Wrapping promise across planetary circles
body of greed remains seeking more power that is

Across the Behring Straight or by Eastern Sea
landing with hopes of bodies uniting

Further division of left and right feathery breeze
rotting corpses and altruistic bodies sharing flight once prophesied

Benevolent are they — carrying carnage of ancient tongue
lost, broken, weak are they — not yet awoken

Rise, my feathery friends — united are we
flying together uniting one body — one family.

Empty are the bellies birthing peace and tranquility
evil seeking asylum in Mother’s bosom.

One heart ripped in two
two hearts beating as one

Once torn from the tribal council
uniting in the streets — sparing voice

Fighting over first nations unimportant
concerted front-end loaders are pouring love across the fields

Conflict amongst ourselves, varying stories of right and wrong, beginning and end, creation or evolution. What if we are all correct in saying these things? What if our realities are all true? Pain and destruction, Love and peaceful valleys — all true!

There was a time we were one, further dividing through the passing of times, consuming flesh and body — devouring our tails without ever knowing the infinite cyclical behavior self-inflicted upon ourselves.

Yonder, passing vibrational tune onto the next generational song, screeching and sounding absurdly childish — scolded for biting brother’s hand that once fed us.


Return home, whence you came, before beginning was The Beginning. From beginning to end, we are that ouroboros absorbing self-realizing truths of yesteryear, emesis, and regurgitating source not labeled by man.

Unable to swallow once begotten, uncomprehending decapitating foretelling of heart’s all-knowing, submitting to an omnipotent source far beyond space itself, we are becoming. Hand’s once cut — my father’s son, now holding warmly to brothers and sisters sun.

From the original Friday the 13th, where the Knight’s Templar were ordered executed, by King Philip, in October of 1307, to The Bloody Sunday led by Lenin, to modern day fighting amongst ourselves — brothers and sisters are we. Turned against one another, fighting over our story-lines as to who’s carries more validity.

I pondered all of the wars between man, then the first nations arrival to the Americas. Uncertain to the origin with varied stories, I envisioned the First peoples arriving from the east and west, as to embrace the whole planet in unity. From the right and left with great wings of hope as one body — they are still here, holding the sacred flame.

My heart aches for humanity

Continuing to pluck the wings from source and body of what was, how can we expect to fly in harmony? Unity of self and collective whole — we shall return.

Not knowing where this was taking me, allowing it free reign over the keyboard. Thank you Ravyne Hawke for allowing me to share these words, thank you for holding this space.

Much gratitude for those who take time to read, ponder and allow the inner workings of self to come forward. Grateful for the feedback, love shared, and more importantly the Dance with Inspiration. Deep Peace.

Calling to the Wind-Gathered Friends Feathering New Jingles

Calling to the Wind – Gathered Friends Feathering New Jingles.

Shapeshifting self-receptive existence

We spin like a top, wildly free out of control laughing man burning frontier.

Devil-may-care notwithstanding any voices outside our self-inflicting cosmic story.

Walking through jungles break stepping ten thousand miles to nowhere in particular, waiting for none other than self-made millionaire within understandings of soul contracts and purpose-driven life.

There it is! Up ahead of the roads crossing with lights flickering from haze to constant glowing.

Stepping beside the comfort of sure-footed knowing, stepping into a great Canvas of uncommon themes of collective spinnings.

Knapsack over the resident artist with brushstrokes dawdling in technicolor dippings of past and future holdings.

Piecing together fabrics of past-life, traumatic anecdote, recalling the voice of creation speaking loudly – go forth and multiply.

It is time – drawing high – elevating songlines and tales of prophets and sages before mixing in present-day phenomenon cleansing truths.

Calling to the winds – gathered friends feathering new jingles found deepest in the jungle source of ancient ones – co-creating breathtaking views mirrored by loved ones and hollowed bones shapeshifting self-receptive existence – serenity between the fabric of creation.

While on vacation, without a computer at my disposal, attempting to capture my thoughts with a magical rectangle in hand, equipped with only poolside stories of yesterday and yesteryears. Sadly, Medium does not allow my adding to publications on an iPhone but my own.Finding myself in the business office of vacation’s hotel.Thank you Drury inn and suites!

Accepting the writer’s call to the prompted song, filling a space of sacred written words for readers and gawkers alike.

Thank you Diana C.for teasing our brains with deep-diving prompts, daily and weekly withholdings.
