NINTH FULL MOON of 2011
“Legends say that hummingbirds float free of time,
Carrying our hopes for love, joy, and celebration.
The hummingbird’s delicate grace reminds us that life is rich,
Beauty is everywhere,
Every personal connection has meaning
And that laughter is life’s sweetest creation.”
From a green-minded group www.papyrusonline.com
By Dorothy Walters (a la Rilke)
“And not once,
But many times over,
Again and again,
How we disappeared
Into that deep well
Of darkness, shuddering beneath that load of silence,
Clinging to our narrow ledge.
Yet the darkness, sometimes,
Unfolded as light.
Our atoms dissolved in it,
Each separate molecule opening
Into a radiant disk of feeling.
How still we became,
Witness and thing seen,
Spectacle and observer,
Each point admitting an untrammeled flood.”
A Chance for Peace
By Clare Rosenfield
In a pause between breaths
A chance for peace
Track that moment
And there is landing
I invite myself into its under-belly
Dwell in a ground below which I cannot fall
Moist with kisses no lips could ever reach
Here I could stay
The only place I can call my own
As worlds whirl out of control
Glare throw daggers retaliate
As mouths spew hatred
What would happen if haters stopped
If blamers ceased
If all eyes softened
Chose to be silent for a moment
Let out a sigh and dropped into the pause
Touched the under-belly of heart-space
Opened to the Peace Goddess
Who has been waiting
Ever since the big bang
For just one instant
Take a long, deep breath and let it out slowly.
Allow your breathing to become full and deeply relaxed.
Allow your rational mind to have a rest and you will be more open to your
