Graduation party poetic reflection

Hey all,

I wrote this poem a week or two before my graduation party, which was actually a secret initiation into a profound community of loving-kindness 🙂

This poem describes my process over the past 10 years or so… Enjoy!

Sleeping peacefully beneath the waves,
Naive ignorance seems bliss,
Mercury Retrograde hibernation;

Storm gathers force above,
Dreamy reverie fills with doubt,
The wintry ice is melting;

Shockingly compassionate, divine hands plunge into water,
Scooping body, depositing on cool beach,
Spring has sprung!

Fall back asleep on warm sand,
seeds planted, much integration;

Eating drinking breathing Astrology, Reiki,
Seeds timidly open, ready to sprout;

Desire to heal gains momentum, meeting Heart Teachers,
Attending summery workshops,
glimpse spiritual vehicle in the distance;

Fresh storm brewing, dash to vehicle,
Take refuge, learn Craniosacral therapy, play with Zapchen Somatics;

Vehicle starts with little effort, much potency,
Move with purpose, make aspirations,
Start UVa, Study Tibetan, height of summer;

Spiritual momentum pays off, rewarded with pilgrimage to Ladakh India,
The days begin to shorten again;

Outer energy wanes, wave of transformation turns within,
Cool breezes change leaves;

First snow falls and I pause,
Reconsidering my path, I fantasize about exotic adventures;

As winter continues without,
Relaxed and alert, I watch for subtle changes in the hoarfrost,
Completion happens with ease and grace.
