Yesterday, I wrote about the overall connections and experience of the mural. Today, I am honored to share the poem inspired by the mural. This poem was written sitting indian style watching Leah & Rachel paint at about midnight or so at Shanteel Yoga Sanctuary.
I don’t think I have ever written a poem more easily. The words fell out of my pen. This mural is a vortex of honesty, inspiration, and authenticity. It’s as if your soul has to leap out of your mouth by its side. Shanteel has that effect on you. There is no room for a mask in her. Our hearts and souls are in every brushstroke, and I’m so honored to have been included in the manifestation. Now, on to the poetry!
Feel free to subscribe to my new YouTube channel – I will be posting more original poetry, and possibly doing some random videos.
When you close your eyes, what do you see?
The glistening pools of infinity,
Or are you mourning upon a desolate sea?
Where do you come from?
Who is your home?
Where is the space between you and your soul?
Who are you without the name you were given?
What is the space between your heart and your living?
Have you ever met someone and found destiny?
Did anyone tell you you’re too blind to see,
Cascading the ripples in your blackened sea,
Triggering a sensation of the web binding you and me?
There’s no time too distant
No day too long
No one to break it
The ties too strong
Breathe in, embrace it
Breathe out, face it
Your destiny has happened,
Don’t let your thoughts replace it.
The wheels start turning
The moment sparks ignite
Let presence consume you
The wrongs will always be right
Trust in yourself
Trust in other
The world is creation
A space beyond limitation
See the human behind the eyes
Rise above your own wolf lie cries
We’re a tapestry interwoven, perfection’s bliss
Spots on canvas, lips of inspiration’s kiss
Paint your dreams into realities color
See yourself when you hear another
When you close your eyes, know it’s the space you’re creating
A dream in the stars, or nightmares unabating
In the darkest night, the dawn of new moon
Open your heart, let your dreams make you swoon
Whisper dreams to the brightest star
Trusting and Knowing that’s who you are
Make your wish, it is granted
As a tree born when the seed is planted
As stardust in sky, your tears were collected
Remove the dust cloths of the dreams you neglected
Our Mother will guide you to divine destination
The only delay is your own hesitation
Feel the wisdom inside of this rhyme
The only separation is the illusion of time.
