Unwind the bindings
clip the tight stitches
release everything from bondage
allow it to move.
Let the song erupt, the tears to flow
move and shake
hear the heartbeat of life
gyrate, slide and listen
sway slowly to that unique rhythm
of walking your own path.
Know the spirals of life
follow them into the centre of the deep mystery
let it explode like stars into your being
wear the galaxy like your favourite dress
go on, let her out, bursting forth
this foot stomping, hip swaying,
light bearing Mystery of life.
This is what the Divine created
a coded map, a blueprint,
a light in the world that cannot be hidden.
Come on, the sea is calming
The wind is steady, unfurl the canvas
and light up the world.

I live and work in a beautiful place with a river and beach and the wild west coast. Having grown up without a TV, as a family we read a lot. This lead to me writing a lot which in turn lead to a habit of writing poetry to make sense of my world. My grandmother painted. Lovely oils and water colours which she encouraged me to try. For many years I did very little, life was not conducive to creativity until came a time when life turned on its head and suddenly I found expression in creativity with the Intentional Creativity method taught by Shiloh Sophia McCloud in her Color of Women training. So here I am, writer, artist, ritual maker showing my offerings to the world.
