Let Her Kiss the Soles of Your Feet -- Fall Promise

2014-09-28-fallpromise.jpg

I'd like to curl up
deep, deep
in the earth and sleep

the promise of fall, harvest
warm embrace, the air aloft with warmth
looped through like a shetland sweater
at peace in the sun

the sun is warm
my bones aglow
nourished to the core

there's summer's abundance, harvest's promise
fall's promise, autumnal bliss

i curl up
deep, deep in the earth to sleep
renew, fine-tune

expanse
a final bath in the sun

reverse sparkle
like a diamond i go back
in the earth

mineral to element
pigment to promise
the light of life
the golden aura of the sun
i take with me deep
deep down into the earth to sleep
the rays of the sun
i soak them up
yellow gold and orange red violet divine

down, down
deep into the earth i go to sleep
to rise
and as the sun rises on cold winter mornings
remember the warmth of this divine autumn day
in the fall of the year
bringing forth the eternal cycle of life
and amidst your coats and vests and hats and scarves
remember the bliss of warmth
the joy of light
and the peace of promise
the peace of spring ahead

as i breathe
i sink into the earth
deep deep into the earth
like a mouse
i curl up like a diamond
i sink deep
deep into the earth

like a mouse i curl up deep deep down
into the earth
a speck, a spark, a sequin of delight
your life

your life is the symphony you imagine it to be
the colors of fall
hazy light
clearcut darkness
the beauty of the breeze wrapped around
velvety shades
sculptures
full bloom about to decline

a harvest hymn for the ages
you at the center
always at the center of the universe

the afternoon
some clouds
warm, warm sun
mild winds
velvety soft
calming blue skies
and i drop deep
deep into the earth
like a mouse i curl up to sleep
like a diamond i go deep, deep
deeper into the earth
to the core to become one with
source

like a mouse i curl up deep
deep in the earth like a diamond
deep
i sink deep
deep
deeper into the earth
down to the core and become one with source

watching the paintings in the sky
i let my mind run free

balmy harvest movements of air
so good
so comforting
velvety
enrobing

grace in motion
neroli in my hair
the universe in my skin
i lay down to dance
