I want to dance with Dionysus and learn from the wise Athena

Wanting More

There are days when I can hardly exhale
Emotions keep getting away like a sliding scale
I want to bathe in darkness dressed in red
The moon will make it look as if I had bled

At times nothing is quite right or enough
I'm craving abundance and extraordinary stuff
I want to partake in an eclipse hiding the light
Or watch the blue illuminations of a polar night

After sunset I wish to swim in algal bloom
Get married to a lunar rainbow as my groom
I want to converse with the goddess Venus
Meet Albert Einstein because he is a great genius

I want to understand the mysteries of the Kabbalah
Speak every language and drink sweet Marsala
Dance with Dionysus and learn from the wise Athena
Voice my questions about the life of Mary Magdalena

There are days when I want everything and more
I want to swim quicksand and eliminate all war
Diving to the darkest corners of every ocean
I want all that and letting go of every motion

Give your soul more

"Rise" Part 2

Take a vision
And place it where your heart is,
Take a moment
And place it in the part of your mind that never forgets,
Take a second
To find yourself and slowly reflect
Sip on your happiness, detach from your regrets
Give your soul more and your pride less.
Drop the selfish act
No one can enjoy a selfish act
No one can enjoy a self centered show.
Believe in your dreams, even when no one else may think so.
Misery still loves company, you need to cut the bad leaves off…if you want your tree to finally grow.

Petal by petal

somewhere i have never travelled, gladly beyond
any experience, your eyes have their silence:
in your most frail gesture are things which enclose me,
or which i cannot tough because they are too near

your slightest look easily will unclose me
though i have closed myself as fingers,
you open always petal by petal myself as Spring opens
(touching skillfully,mysteriously) her first rose

or if your wish be to close me, i and
my life will shut very beautifully, suddenly,
as when the heart of this flower imagines
the snow carefully everywhere descending;

nothing which we are to perceive in this world equals
the power of your intense fragility: whose texture
compels me with the color of its countries,
rendering death and forever with each breathing

(i do not know what it is about you that closes
and opens; only something in me understands
the voice of your eyes is deeper than all roses)
nobody, not even the rain, has such small hands
-E.E. Cummings

Turn your face into the wind


Close your eyes and turn your face into the wind.
Feel it sweep along your skin in an invisible ocean of exultation.
Suddenly, you know you are alive.

Understand the imperceptible

To hear never-heard sounds, 
To see never-seen colors and shapes, 
To try to understand the imperceptible 
Power pervading the world; 
To fly and find pure ethereal substances 
That are not of matter 
But of that invisible soul pervading reality. 
To hear another soul and to whisper to another soul; 
To be a lantern in the darkness 
Or an umbrella in a stormy day; 
To feel much more than know. 
To be the eyes of an eagle, slope of a mountain; 
To be a wave understanding the influence of the moon; 
To be a tree and read the memory of the leaves; 
To be an insignificant pedestrian on the streets 
Of crazy cities watching, watching, and watching. 
To be a smile on the face of a woman 
And shine in her memory 
As a moment saved without planning.
-Dejan Stojanovic-
