Reflection In a Tapestry

I saw myself in a reflecting pool the other day.
It was….different
Mirrors are always so cold and impersonal. Just the facts.
Pools ripple and, I think, it’s always a bit shocking anyway.
To see that which I broadcast outward to everyone
and everything so casually thrown back at me. Read More→

Into the Underworld (Mars)

Into the Underworld

by Erik Roth

(This is in reference to the Mars Cycle where Mars enters the underworld in the glare of the Sun)

The die is cast, the sailors wave, for I have chosen to be brave
The ocean of dreams sends out the call
The ocean of darkness welcomes all

I chose to be brave despite the Sun, I enter a place where there is no fun
I return to the waters to invoke my fears, as the heat sears through my tears
My heartbeat slows in the rocking swells, ringing my bones as if they were bells

The intense light blinds my sight, creating darkness in my plight
The shadow reigns, for the masculine has served the millennia past
It ruled to form and held its might
Those kingdoms held mostly pains, but I no longer serve that mast

Decay and grief await to my relief, for I must prepare for that next frontier
No more thoughts, no more deeds, for surrender is next and I give my best
To the ocean of awe that opens its maw

There will be rebirth and not without good mirth
For a new adventure beckons, just not the one I would have reckoned

Good Night

I stood behind him in the desert cold, smiling
My arms wrapped warmly all around him, everywhere I could reach
My chin tucked over his shoulder, nose to cheek
Oozing all the love I could give in support Read More→

Tired and Hopeful

Please submit poems  to Cayelin at cayelink@gmail.com.

Tired and hopeful seeks caffeinated and real for LTR
So tired of the guru type
Who talks about “living another reality”
Separate from the underling humans all around him
Yet he has his paycheck direct deposited, too
And shits sitting down like moi y du Read More→
