A submission and transmission came today during the Creative Writing group, led by Dr. Ann Filemyr, as a response to the prompt which was to use either ‘hello’ or ‘goodbye’ as the starter for each sentence. Excuse my crude grammar, but I enjoy poetry because I can break rules without consequences.
hello Holy body temple
hello golden light pillar rooting me to the core of the Earth, extending into the Cosmos
hello precious Angels of Air, Light, Earth, Water, Life, Love, Peace, Wisdom, Healing
hello surrender, prostration and kissing the ground you walk on
hello independence and intimacy with you standing next to me, your silent hand on my shoulder reminding me I am never alone
hello Tesla’s Coil of electric spirals cracking and popping to the beat of Mother’s Heart Drum in the wake of the Dark Night
hello clouds of spaciousness between inhalation, exhalation, and annihilation
hello penetration of Light Photons tickling the backs of my eyelids, awakened by the One Who Never Sleeps
hello butterfly-effect, guttural flutterings, leaves trembling, sweetness rippling
hello streams of conscience sparkling from here to Kingdom Come
hello Divine Presence in the Here And Now and faith in the ancient all that ever was and will be, which is a silky vortex I am destined to reverently nurture in my secret pocket of mystery
hello Lovers and Travelers on the Paths of Righteousness, swimming the Seas of Eternal Return and Being
hello ancestral family, you timeless tender warriors
goodbye delusions of separation
