Last week I participated in a very generous online offering called, Liberated Lines :: Amplify. It was an immersion in quick and dirty poetry making paired with pictures. A gorgeous way to greet the unfolding season while honoring the magic of inspiration, this outstanding creativity playground is facilitated by two amazing women who I have come to know and love over the past couple of years through various online groups, including Liberated Lines. Alisha Sommer and Robin E. Sandomirsky are each incredible women in their own right, but something really special happens when they combine their vision together. I love participating in Liberated Lines, it's freeing and messy and fun! It reminds me that creation doesn't have to be perfect, it just needs to happen, period.
Threads started by mistake become wonderful ingenuity. A place for letting go of expectation. The dance of life & death in solidarity with standard beats. I'm as sure of my becoming as I am of my undoing. Confirmed parameters are not allowed. Want it for yourself and the Wild things. #liberatedlinesamplify #liberatedlines #threads #pushbuttonpoems
Unlocked from winters icy grip, the earth thawed quickly and a stench rose from the mud. Newly transformed states of water rush through the ravine churning up a putrid foam in their wake. Hydrogen and oxygen molecules raging towards the river, towards the sea, towards the clouds they will return to again. A heart can freeze and it can be unlocked and set free, too. A stench will arise when the rot of cowardice keeps the mouth closed. Words push the putrid foam of deception out of my way. Roaring with courage, spilling the contents of my truth, I won't be silenced. flowing towards the river, the sea, the clouds... #liberatedlinesamplify #liberatedlines #readytoroar #poetsofinstagram #truthistruth
I dream of a long life and a sudden death and for spectacular views along the road to that tender place. I'm told that the years spent in one's life are buoyed by few things more important than understanding the importance of the Badlands when we encounter them. There, in nameless gray space the value of a vivid dream will be made manifest. I dream of an unfettered heart that laughs and lifts when poked and prodded. I've heard tell of mythical beings who have these instructions and I will keep the house cleared for their arrival. I dream of blissfully sailing and not getting seasick anymore. #liberatedlinesamplify #liberatedlines #idream #poetsofinstagram #dreamscape #aninvitationtodream
My bones are the crystalline structure of the earth, itself. Messages from 1000 ancestors amplify through 206 honeycombed wands. Hovering in the threshold of paradox, my bones give me enough form to dissolve into all the nameless faces who came before me. The freedom of an octopus to disappear in a cloud of ink through a tiny keyhole in my soul. My bones are keys unlocking the mystery of myself. #liberatedlinesamplify #liberatedlines #mybones #namingyourbones #poetsofinstagram
