Embryonic 2012: Awakened

A conversation with a dear friend inspired the poem below, as we shared our experiences of stepping into the energy of 2012.  As I listened, an image emerged.  I saw a woman standing on top of a tall rocky precipice, in fetal position, her long hair flowing around her, and her body still wet like a newborn. . .embryonic.


Standing on the precipice

dawning this new day

a goddess stands birthed,

her long hair saturated,

wet with liquid global gold,

filled with lava nectar washing

through her global heart

in intimate bursts of connectivity

of knowing, of truth

of seeing, of awakening 

the whole world inside herself.


Like a son seeks into his Mama’s eyes

I stare into the sun 

witnessing the moments

as a community of gods and goddesses


each on our own vibrant precipice

cradled between Father Sky and Mother Earth

wet and renewed

sacred and pulsating

inside stillness and silence and love.


We are the Daykeepers

standing centered in our mesas

tooled with rattles, cloths, crystals and water

as we midwife the global heart’s rebirth

inside our sisters and brothers and friends

inside our corporations, homes and schools

inside ourselves and the whole world.
