Suckling The Mother

Wednesday, July 29th, 2009

Like a babe I suckle at the nipple of Mother Earth
instinctively rooting for Her fleshy mound,
seeking the sustenance of Her liquid energy.

I drink with my toes
digging them into the pebbles of the riverbed or the sand of the sea bottom.
Through my feet Her life force flows into me, through me,
filling me with life; replenishing my soul.

Time suckling passes too quickly.
Unlike a babe, it is I who must tear myself away from this Mother’s bosom to return “home”.

Still thirsting, I am insatiable, aching for more.
My Earth Child Self yearns instead to sleep here at Her breast,
not to get on my bike and return to the hard, dry crust of my blacktop suburb.

No expectations. Just the doing.

Tuesday, July 28th, 2009

I’ve been thinking about this for some time -a place to write, to jot thoughts, and to share them.  No expectations.  Just the doing. 

Tonight it came to me as I sat.  A country girl’s mind trying to find inner peace in her new home among the train whistles and expressway traffic serenade.  Then the thought bounced in from nowhere, “You did it!  You sat.”  For the first time in months or has it been longer?  All it took was going upstairs to get the cushion and putting my bottom on top of the cushion.   So much thinking first.  Then the simple act of just doing.   And the instant I began, it was done. 

Then the next thought appeared, “Start your blog!  Just do it.  Tonight!”  And I have.  No expectations.  Just the doing.
