Midnight.

totem_moon_by_bitmap0023[1]

I awaken as the night sky pours on the concrete

Moonlight cascades the mountain ranges and trees

A quietness and stillness as the darkness explores

It is serene and void of the daylights abrubt

Here is where anything is possible and the unreal comes to life

The animals  no longer hide; roaming the terrain

The fox; wolf; racoons; coyotes; owls and bears

I feel as if a visitor in this time and place and I respect it

I respect its sacredness and its divine still

While streetlights flicker along the cascading streets

Not a sound and not a movement nor passing cars

All is still yet I know it is very much alive

When I awaken to the nights sky

 

Rain obsessed

Why do I love the rain

Does it wash away the pain

The hurt; of living here on earth

Or is it the calm and serene

Drifting into streams

Or cascading lights in the city

Stunning; it’s so pretty

Or perhaps the sound

On the tin roofs or ground

It’s lovely when it rains except

Perhaps I’m a little rain obsessed.

Abide.

Protected by my mother; and my mothers mother

Under the ravens great wings; I abide

Loving all of mother earths children

Her animals and her trees and her streams

Our towered buildings overlook the twin peaks

In this great turtle island is so much beauty

I basque and appreciate the rainfalls

So thankful for the sky

For this sunshine and this stormy night

Looking into the sky; universal in my eyes

And under the raven wings I will fly.
