Each flame 
elegantly weaves in waves
flowing up from resources red cinder hot,
similar in warm color
temperature decrees
of beauty as integrity's truth
trust each surrounding flame.

Each flame 
unique in point of origin below
as ubiquitously flickering fading destinations above.

Always wanting to get the most from life,
one morning after a terrible snow storm
she rose from bed stretching 
the most radiant, playful grin spread across her face,
"I feel incredible," she screamed,

I can't quite explain it...the love of mine
Had gone away from my sight and such

this one had to end when she again became weak.

Human history is difficult;
hard pressed,
and rediscovering,
and reconnecting feelings
about therapeutic needs
and sacred wants
for trauma-prevention peace

Through co-empathic singing passions
which may,
too often, 
feel stressful

before unconditional win/win regard
for Self AND Other

Like EgoTheistic re-ligion
and EcoMatrimonial
indigenously multicultural
ecowomanist wisdom

Of Ego/EarthTribe mutual MeWe...

Light On the Devil's Chord - Day 24
In the morning, he was tetchy, but gentle,
Sitting beside me till my eyelids opened
I sat up, yawning, and rubbed my eyes
His hand brushed a dry tear off my face

I know
you know
you stole our property,
our mutual possession,
our sense of co-ownership,
of belonging together
to grow our health forever.

to use for your self recreating purposes,
not a subject for open...

No one can hear my midnight shout, I’m out
Try to knock me out, but I’ll stand tall

Rolling the way they do
His lover is not with them
She stayed in for the night
He misses her company
But enjoys his time with the guys
He'll swing by later
