Brooke von Blomberg at far right... Hi Brooke!
The spirit of Georgia O'Keeffe was present...
Reading "Rose Petals, Pale Ones"...
reading "17 Breaths, 17 Haiku"
reading "Truth, Says the White Deer"
reading Bosque Dreaming: Fox Medicine
reading "Flower Moon"...
curling her slender fullness
into the Flower Moon
folding Beauty into Bliss
she gathers nirvana
in a delicate calligraphy of legs
dabs Truth between her eyes
White Deer's desire to know it
to dip her lithe pink tongue
into Moonflower's Cup
effuse deliriant ~ pure white ink
a kiss upon Datura's Sacred face
so effortlessly fleet her Transcendence
luminous spark of grace on her heels
no fleurish ~ no tracks
to follow up the indigo trail
leaping into enlightenment
now here now there quantum magic
I put on Datura's Sacred Moonflower mask
spill myself into her pool of dreams
follow her dance into the illuminating alchemy of night
I leap to kiss White Deer's sacred face
drown inside her full Flower Moon
See what I mean? The spirit of Georgia O'Keeffe was present... in her painted images, in my photo, in the blossoms of the Sacred Datura opening up behind the stage as night fell... in my poem, Flower Moon, and in the Sacred Datura photos I took by flashlight after everyone left... MAGIC!
Namasté Sacred Datura ❤
