New Year’s meditation


Mandy Tsung – unnamed

the i love you magic
working its way through me

not because i heard it
but because i said it

the i love you magic
when i’m all alone
embracing myself
as i want me to be

not because i heard it
but because i live it

the i love you magic
when i love the evil
the weird & rejected

not because i heard it
but because i want it

then i’m one
then i’m them all
then i’m lone
finally whole

Gustave Courbet – The oak of Flagey

what’s an acorn
but a possible oak–

we too are acorns
waiting, struggling
becoming the tree–

not there yet
but we’ll be–


new year is here
forget the acorn
be the tree–

why stay the same
if we can be
so much more–

A Dickinsonian birthday


Salvador Dalí – Glass of wine and boat

years and years
left behind
so one New
can begin–

and i, i dwell in possibilities–
and my boat has no port–

and my dreams are so big
that i float adrift–

and my life is a mess
but i couldn’t care less–

we’ll have wine
and nice talks–
love is all around
inside and out–

Yep, I’m the birthday girl today. Not every day you turn 27, peeps!
