Breaking the Ice

Taking pleasure, in
Giving pleasure…
Giving pleasure in your
Taking…

Extending friendship
Drawing them closer…
Drawing you closer in
Friendship…

Taking in what you’re
Giving out…
Giving out you’re
For the taking…

That it’s cool
In being warm…
Being warm may not be cool
But it’s not uncool…

Kia Kaha Aotearoa

(Christchurch shooting, 15-3-19)
 
As is being
expressed
everywhere
in NZ,
 
I feel our
common strength
and desire
to not
 
Let things
like this ‘win’.
 
– – – – –
 
We will all
just take
such a ‘wave’
of violence –
 
And push back!,
and love
a little harder,
prove
 
That the ‘wave’
of Good
is stronger!
 
And more visible
and vocal.
 
Kia kaha Aotearoa.

Yoni (Poem Erotique)

Pudendal cleft (Cleft of Venus)
My love’s (mon amour)
Purse of pussy lips
Goddess garden grotto.

Mound of Venus (mons pubis)
Covered in wave of soft hairs
Tongue licking up left and right
Interlabial sulcus valley grooves

Of softest skin.

From the bottom starting place
Singular bass-note dark dark-of-the-moon
Butt-on-hole, touching down and in where
Luscious labia lips part at fourchette.

Then inside such cleft edges
Majora then minora then vulvar vestible
To frenulum clitoridis and clitoral hood, the
Feminine foreskin, then little woman in the boat.

The Unguarded Garden

The garden is growing.
The garden IS growing.
Growing is what a garden IS.
The garden is like Eden.

The garden is guarded by angels hovering
Above the four gates holding swords of flame.
Inside the gates the garden grows, generously.
We are grateful for the garden’s growthfulness.
We are bestowed with what grows in the garden.

The garden is dying.

The leaves of the young tamarillo tree
Lean down, limp and fringed with brown.
You planted that tree. I was stricken with concern.
I hadn’t seen it fading – only a day or so ago it seems,
It was looking so green, garrulous and go-getting.

You planted it only a few weeks before we parted.
I was stricken. I poured a large bucket of water
Against the woody stem: one of the broad leaves
Broke off and fell to the ground as I glanced it.

Now not even the ways I want to help seem to matter.
I hadn’t seen it, I’m sorry, I hadn’t seen it was dying.
You don’t know how much the garden has been growing.
You don’t know how the large broad leaves are lost.

The garden is growing.
The garden is dying.

If you came back you’d say the garden was still ours.
But the angels with flaming swords wouldn’t let you in.

Six Stanzas To Satya Sai Baba

In your hair are a hundred
Billion galaxies we know of
in the Expanding Universe

~ ~ ~

In the fringes of thy infinity
Is your halo aura of love
Blue light in the sky above me

~ ~ ~

In your cheeks are the fires
Of a thousand melting volcanoes
Supernovas

~ ~ ~

The rosy glow of a Goddess
Of infinite creation and a God
Of Ultimate Authority

~ ~ ~

As the Cosmos and Cosmic
Are tended in your Consciousness
By the fires of your Heart

~ ~ ~

In me in adoration of you
You are infinitely the part
And whole of me Thou Art
