Odanata Sonata

Horse-stinger, Devil’s Needle
Gliders, Dashers, Darners
Flitting acrobats above mirrored waters

“Skim below 
Refresh your view
For nothing is ever
As it appears on the surface
We pierce the Veil
Guardian of Dreamtime
Shape-shifter revealing all your illusions
While casting my own
With each bright reflective scale
Perhaps as long as
Two years immersed as a nymph
Gobbling everything smaller than me 
Mastering emotions
Before revealing the dragon within

Adderbolt, Snake-doctor
Soaking up moments in the sun
Now is the only reality
Change the only constant
Hovering
Hypnotic as a daydream
Seeing all but that just behind me
Before flashing off
In any direction
To capture and devour my prey
Mid-flight
Mosquito Hawk, Bee-render
The easiest lies are those we tell ourselves
We will reveal each self-spun illusion
Keeping you from Growth
From Transformation
Like a poke in the eye
Restoring truth to your sight
Humming Ancient Magic
320 Million years
Drumming warmth and Wisdom
With each lacy beat of my 
Independent wings
Messenger, Diplomat
Fairy Horse, Magician’s Wand
I can introduce you
To all that sings
What you need
Is already at your hand
Adapt
Transform
Pierce your own veils
Mature, Grow
Light and Dark
Dream True
Allow yourself to understand.”

Love in Shades of Amethyst

Heart's Ease
Crown of Athens
Modest, humble, faithful
although not so shy
We hide among the shadows
whispering liminal wisdom
in shades of twilight sky
True of heart, woodland nobles
We herald the Goddess of Spring
encouraging honesty
temperance
self reinvention
cautioning vigilance in all things
Herb of the Trinity becomes cordial sweet
We could stew to thicken your soup
Heart shaped leaves tossed as tasty greens
Our song opens a place within
for contented self acceptance
pressed between pages
Perfumed reminder like
Napoleon's love for Josephine

Living Knotwork

“Bee bread
Trefoil
Nearly purple,
my blushing red face
can be found in almost any field
One of Creator’s numberless gifts,
my many uses
have long been revealed
Tonic, tincture, poultice, bath or tea
Leaves like trinity knots, I lift
Three leaves yet one
Four if you are lucky
Singing of healing, calming, and renewal of every degree.
We foster intuition, clarity, reasoning, logic
Keep you from being carried away
by the hysterical herds
We replenish the soil
keeping nitrogen fixed
Calm and Steady are
our watchwords”

Sacred Silence

Be here now
Breathing in sacred silence
Calm spreading like light
Shedding stress like doubts
Awakening now
Chakras bright
Stretching boundaries
Renewal found in stillness
Beauty frozen to a whisper
Breath crisp with frost
Mindfullness found
While Winter's paradise is lost
