maybe time to start zinnias
7.30am on earth day
coffee to get the blood rush
not sure if we need a fire today

neighbourly duties, stories to tell
the big melt melting boundaries
when those out in their yards give a wave
maybe eggs too, on barrie's green

seed to stem to leaf
a bit of green for a healthy life
each root a gift, deep in the earth
where it will drink and feed something for us
to drink, and feed

a breath on your leaves to warm you

love & pets quietly playful
working on something for us and the world

what i don't have to fight for is often worth keeping

sitting on the seventh floor, level with a horizon of city lights
can feel my body re-adjust back to sitting all day
and my eyes unglaze to a screen of code

luckily i've taken a break from working full-time to live part-time
so the rest of the week will be movement and laughter
tomorrow i'm train-bound to montreal
to catch up with dear friends, walk a different city's streets, rock out at a saturday night venue
and..... meet a lover? make a deal? gain perspective?

so much so much

joined a gym - didn't fall off the running machine
just fell out of touch with that passive part of me that is good for awhile but not for too long

held my own hands, together with myself in a moment
looked down at my fingers... middle on the left
thinking about each day's passing, my existence now and here.

i will someday be history - joining the sparkle in a ring a young woman wears
a moss agate ring from centuries ago (it is the ring of my great great grandmother)
i wonder what she thought about this ring, and about life and things.

this week: lights on a church ceiling, friends in a shadowy bar, a city drenched in snow, beautiful men, naked women, and the laughter of a child

spent yesterday afternoon lazing in the warm nest of a family
2 week old little one in my arms, 18mo old on my back
laughing with melli and roan, proud parents, amazing friends

three men fell through the ice, one was lost
i could tell in mom's words and in dad's voice
a small town tragedy is inherently felt at home, brought into one's heart

a wrong jump into bed cracked the back of my head
it made a rock hard noise which made a shocking cold pulse
left a phone msg at midnight to assure myself i was still alive... "just callin to say hi"

have been checking in with my consciousness all day... yep, still here, i say
a quiet ache this afternoon in a lonely skull
a rare time when living alone can make ya sore

tho the white filled city streets
my lift was light as air
shouted "hold your fire!" to father & son
as i carried my guitar to jer's

she paced above me in needle-like heels
so i paced myself around some sharp words
none of it coming out right writing for voice
lyrical pit of despair, circling the drain

show next thursday and still have to write the songs
surreal shocks of horror at the idea of what i will have to perform
am i a genius or my own guinea pig?

today i bought a red umbrella
and christened it in the warm thaw of rain  ("november rain"... too cheese)

body feels smooth
maybe it's the jaw bones?
maybe it's other things

"together, together, together, together, together....."

also, friday night:
crooked star, full moon
dancing
high-fived by a stranger on the walk home

woke up still asleep

heard snow on the window and peeked through the blind
snow!

warmed up under a yellow sheet where it was sunshine

last night i swept the water from my wings
and propelled forward into a quiet blue light
it is good to be here alone

fed the living beings i care for
licked spout water off my fingertips

waiting the day for the one to come
and give me hot water again
for my baths

i just bought a pricey tepid coffee
with hopes that it would warm me to sitting here a few more hours

"the destination - we reached it, now we're feelin worse"

long soft nights of warm deep sleep
waking up to a new day with the same sun and the same self
looking for the patterns in a life of patterns
each level of magnification just as complex as the previous
chaos, entropy as slow beautiful things

hand to chest, in search of a heartbeat
where there should have been strength was only a shadow
no life boat, just the wake of a wave

palm to breast, in search of a pulsing
wondering if my heart was softly fading, or sinking
seven in the morning, looking for confirmation

last night i emerged from a bath of hot water into the cool breeze of a silent night
i looked out at my muddy yard and inhaled it
the pear tree was empty of leaves

i said a prayer for the first time in a very long time
i said "dear divine universe" (this, i thought, was a decidedly general yet beautiful enough greeting)
i said "dear divine universe, help me be who i am to become."
