La Arana de los Muertos - 2In the spider's web
all dreams turn to dust
and all love turns to lust.
Nothing is sacred here.
In her silk coffin
there is no meaning --
no hope, no life. She
destroys what you hold dear.
She draws you in as
her cold lips trace the
back of your neck.
You are finished now.
You lay down, even
You submit. You cry.
Sweat rolls across your brow.
With nothing left to lose
you tell her you love her.
Her fangs, bone white,
Glisten with ghostly glow.
Frozen, you watch her.
Her lips twitch into a smile.
With something like sympathy
She says -- "I know."
Thank YouAs the seed develops in the
warm embrace of the Earth
so does the human soul
in the company of greater wisdom.
With a fracture
or a break
one may think the branch is broken
but with time comes a new limb.
In the company of Love
a soul with flourish
and shine with colors so bright
the eye may turn away.
But the heart knows purity
and it knows Goodness.
The heart knows truth.
The heart does not give up --
It knows humility and every day
it learns lessons,
it listens to what the ears do not understand,
it sees what the eyes refuse to see.
In the company of greater wisdom
the Heart will learn many lessons
and the soul will rise up
to the canopies of true Abundance.
Epiphany"Shh," the wind whispers through the trees.
I am gripped with the sensation of calm
and I know I am safe here.
The stars watch from on high
spread across a blanket of indigo
and quivering just barely with each passing breeze.
The world moves at a killing pace
while the Earth rotates unnoticed.
So easy it is to focus on fear.
Does the songbird worry about tomorrow
as she joins the breeze in motion?
Does she sing songs of regret?
Does the wolf spend days on hesitation?
Does he wait for opportunity to
come to him from afar?
Earth holds her children near
and the wind whispers her secrets.
To know all she knows --
-- Just Stop
