LET ME DROWN

Today I am in love
With grief and sorrow
Don’t try and pull me away
Or cheer me up
There is nothing wrong

Let me drown a while
In this vast ocean
I will die ten thousand times
And feel the wave
Of suffering
And my own helplessness

It will be terrible
And beautiful
And, like all things,
Will pass in its own time
I am not the author of any of this
But I surrender into it.

OPEN MIND, OPEN HEART

When mind and heart are open
A natural harmony is inevitable

When either one are closed
Division and righteousness prevail

The door of possibility is open
And the invitation is clear

Do whatever it takes
To open mind and heart

Opening the mind is tricky
As there are veils upon veils

Opening the heart is painful
Covered over as it is by defendedness
Born of past hurts
And conditioned beliefs

But the warrior in search of truth
Is tenacious and willing.

I AM LEAVING WORDPRESS

This is it
I am leaving wordpress after 5 years of poetry

It has been wonderful
But enough is enough

If you want to stay in touch and follow my poetry
You can find me on substack
https://kavijezziehockaday.substack.com

My subscription will run until the end of this month and then expire.

Thank you so much for following me, liking my poems and paying some attention.
The poetry is not stopping, only my chosen and preferred platform.
I still do all my poetry free and substack is no different.

So if you fancy continuing the journey jump on.
Otherwise be well and be blessed.

FALL INTO SKY NATURE

The tangled web we weave
Entangling ourselves and each other
In the stickiness
Like a glue that wants to harden
And solidify into something fixed

All this entangling must come undone
Sometimes in one fell swoop
Often as a gradual erosion

The inherited and conditioned patterns
Woven into us unconsciously
Parents, religion, morality
All the ancestral wounds
Playing themselves out in each of us

All this must cease being the driver
Of our urges, our habits and our addictions

This is a call to become naked and innocent
To fall into the unknowing-ness prior to personality

It is no small call, not for the feint of heart
It is a warriors challenge, for it takes great courage
To take everything off
To remove the veils
To open Pandora’s box
To meet the ghosts
To face any and all demons
Not from a place of war
But from the deepest peace and openness
As the sky accepts the tumult of the storm.
