And We Drift

Daina-White-Gregory-Bailey-ShellsWhen I first went down the hill, I couldn’t remember if I had stopped here before, and tumbled and tumbled. Therefore, I braced myself on its steep cliffs, placing my feet carefully in the roots and stones of the Earth. Then, I was able to come upon the Sea; boy, did it shone with glittering blue diamonds, reflecting rainbow rays off the sun’s brilliant haze. I stepped further, once again bracing myself as I peered into its watery depths. The sun kept popping up near my reflection as clouds moved about. She called to me, this Sea, her Siren Song, but a melody. And how bright she was in her beauty, grace and form. She ~ the waves ~ danced with me as I walked in, further, deeper, letting the surface waters slip away and further accept my embrace into the Mother’s Depth. I let myself go then. I let myself fall so that I could float, and be carried by the warm ocean’s current, as it swirled and spun and told me stories of love. I let myself fall once more, dipping the canal of my ear into the fluid music of her oceanous gifts, her voice, her wisdom, her song ~ our melody.

Grey Wanderer

daina-white-flower-gregory-baileyAs my memory serves me,
it seems to wander into the grey…
Will I be filtered or stand out
strong, crisp, brave, clear
Will I wash away as these ruins turn and these oceans churn
for the tides mount higher now
rising and climbing…Ascending. ❤ ❤
Or perhaps…
Will I be reborn?
For I am refreshed
and made Anew
And I’m coming up on a precipice now
As I can see the stormy clouds passing by
intermixed with a rainbow’s shine
This sky…
It is LimitLess
It breathes into me…
And I find my footing
holding grasp to your hand,
as we walk together
in lilted unity
forever eternally
throughout these great lands…
