*Note: The word Pietà finds its origins in the Italian word for “pity” and the Latin word for “piety”, giving it a sense of “compassion” and “devotion” altogether. Apparent from the depiction of Mary and her dead son in her lap, the compassion of the mother towards her dead son is quite obvious. My musical choice is I love Air by Bach & Pietà by Michelangelo. The video shows detailed features of the sculpture and its humanistic elements.

Chakra (cakra in Sanskrit) means “wheel” and refers to energy points in your body. They are thought to be spinning disks of energy that should stay “open” and aligned, as they correspond to bundles of nerves, major organs, and areas of our energetic body that affect our emotional and physical well-being.

Sun’s Awakening *

her pale silver crested lover

fades, as she wakes,

in his shadowed light,

she no longer lingers

within his cool embrace.

They have circled their

beloved child Earth

since its conception.

once more alone she

simply stretches along

the horizon, body slow to

rise, her eyes open,

casually glances across

distant mountains, bathing

them in warm beams

of light, pastel shades

of softest amber,

pale blue, her mirrored

reflection upon the clouds

as they drift before her.

Morning glory’s tightly closed

with her nightly departure,

now greet her return. slowly

unravel for her, revealing their

star-shaped blooms

indigo blue,

purple stars

centered,

ivory encircles,

her lovers moist

kiss lingers.

his marks,

reminders

of midnights passion.

Dream Weaver *

The legend of The Dream Catcher has been told by Native American Indians for generations.

The Catcher is created by the hands of the Dream Weaver who is guided by the spirits of darkness and light.

~~~

In the full light of the moon,

within the woods she began

gathering all that was needed.

Upon bended knees she

set about her task, quietly

reciting ancient ritual verses.

Gently bending a willow branch

to form a circle of strength.

Using silken spider thread,

she begins creating a magical

knotted web, there in nights

evil dreams are trapped.

Below the circle she hangs

multiple strands of threaded

feathers, they flutter upon

nights breeze gently guiding

the light of life’s beauty

into your dreams.

~~~

Have no fears of evil dreams.

Her talisman will keep them

at bay until mornings light,

so you my sleep peacefully.
