This morning, I breathe.
i hear my belly flicker
like a candle.
like the one on my altar
illuminating all my work,
night and day
what’s manifesting in there?
knowing the universe will
deliver what’s inside.
knowing the universe is
like my input/output machine
where are my thoughts?
i’ve been germinating through
such an assortment,
seeing them spread out before me,
in a colorful array.
like the sky’s gift on Christmas morning, presented a rainbow,
like the eclipse listened to me
and took a picture –
with its momentary wink,
ringing in the new decade
the next classy 20s act,
the best material is being
memorized by the cast
we are all character acting
and compelling. you believe us.
you believe in our dreams.
the best show is still in production
the sets were designed and constructed
this whole previous decade
and now the clock ticks on,
with each tick a new brilliant
thought, a dream, a breath…
the count, the flicker, the manifesting, the dreams.

What a beautiful view of dreams and nurturing what is inside us. May 2020 be ripe with emerging life.
Thank you, Brad! I had not seen this message until right now! My notifications bar is inconsistent, and a number of comments had gotten lost in “pending” until now– Seems like “the New Year” just keeps renewing, and that’s precious! So… this blessing was/is received, indeed 🙂 Many blessings of emerging life and ripeness… right back to you, my friend!
Your beautiful poem instills excitement for a brilliant future!
Thank you, JoAnna! My apologies I didn’t see this comment until now. My notification bar is not letting me know when I get messages all the time [only occasionally?]. I am just seeing it because I went on my computer, and tried to find a comment I wrote that disappeared. The comment is not in spam. But, it has now safely, “timelessly” arrived – and I feel even more connected with our brilliant future now 🙂 ❤
I understand. “Timelessly arrived” right on time. 🙂 ❤
Hello my beautiful friend💜 Love this poem…I feel the movement. Closing one year…a decade in fact. It is all necessary…it all builds one layer upon the other….everything is revealed in perfect time!
Sending so much love and light to you and yours as we close this decade. Sweet Blessings dear Ka! 💜☀️
Everything is revealed in perfect time! Hah! I just see this comment now! I can’t believe so many comments end up not getting sent to my notification area. They aren’t marked as spam; they just never get to me until I find myself looking for something else, and there they are! (Also I have to be on my computer.) Here’s to a new decade, and hopefully I can get a wrap on my management of “stuffs.” Looking forward to reading your new blog! Each moment is a Flicker 🙂 So grateful for this comment, and for our being in-step with one another.
I, too, have been experiencing strange WP missing comments and such. No worries my friend…I know we are connected and that everything comes at the perfect time.
Sending lots of love and light 💜
A beautiful poem, Ka. It captures the season of change and hope with a dose of magic.
Thank you, Diana! It’s wonderful to receive your feedback! I’m glad you read my poem! 🙂 Wishing you a fun and magical year ahead!
