Nine. 109.

  1. A single raindrop upon lush petals.
  2. What if epiphanies don’t always arrive as 4 am jolts?
  3. What if they are fervent sighs, hazy and shadowy?
  4. Written as breath on my face.
  5. Maybe my epiphany arrives as the blushing pink of the morning sky whispering,
  6. “See me, enjoy me, feel me.”
  7. Notice the soft kiss spirit calling me
  8. And being ravished by the entwined intimacy of my sensuality, spirituality & creativity.
  9. My awakening.



For me




starts as an emotion, a feeling, reality, a whispered fantasy

an idea or a remembered breathing thing.

it is like a tiny unseen seed,

I hold it between my open palm and whisper sweetly, “glow”

and with my other hand I cut my heart open and bleed

(metaphor, remembering).

I exhale warmth over the tiny form and weep.

Sometimes, it grows into a most magnificent tree,

I am in awe and wonder as it rises before me

reminding me of the tree in Avatar, the movie





and a significant, intimate connection sweeps over me


There is also an entangled connection

between creativity, spirituality and sensuality.

Writing is the noticing and living it again

savoring the presence of spirit

and the input from the senses.


is the distilling of the feeling

Which is why I keep returning

again and again.


“We write to taste life twice, in the moment and in retrospect.”-Anais Nin
