White Spectral World-Bridger/ Self-Existing Owl Moon of Form, Day 4

11 Cimi


White Spectral World-Bridger


Death, surround me now –

I swim in the Underworld

Lower than Low –


Down to the Depths

Of Darkness I go –

Down to Xibalba* I go



Is there

But the Ache

In my Heart.


*Xibalba is described in the Maya sacred text, Popol Vuh, as a court below the surface of the Earth associated with death and with twelve gods or powerful rulers known as the Lords of Xibalba.

Red Planetary Serpent/ Self-Existing Owl Moon of Form, Day 3

10 Chicchan

Red Planetary Serpent


I swallow down the full Moon whole

 She melts upon my Tongue –

She settles in my Belly while

I drink the Wine of Kingdom come


She takes a silver Ride inside

Where Flesh had been until

The container of a future Life

Fell beneath a Surgeon’s Knife


Scalpel cut Sinew and Nerve

Creating open Space –

My Womb is in the Tomb

But even More is in its Place


My Progeny are Prose and Poetry

Conceived in the Soul by Night –

Infants unnumbered are borne

On a bright shining Beam of blue Light.

Yellow Solar Seed/ Self-Existing Owl Moon of Form, Day 2

9 Kan


Yellow Solar Seed


Clouds float by

In grand Procession –

Pillowing - Billowing

Mountainous Wisps of white –

Stately Fortresses of Mist

Kissing the Sky


Shape-shifters all –

Turning Light to Shade

Eclipsing Sun – Moon - Stars

Silently they pass en masse

Lifting all to Heaven.

10/18/2020 Blue Galactic Night/ Self-Existing Owl Moon of Form, Day 1

8 Akbal



Blue Galactic Night


In the Midnight Fire

Of winter’s second Moon

I rise again

To ask for Blessing


In the Midnight Fire –

A full Moon blazing

All Fear dissolves

In Prayers for Love and Peace


In the Midnight Fire

Of the Midnight Hour

My heart’s Wing

Reaches to embrace my Beloved


The full Moon burns 

In a midnight Sky

Far Stars shine twice bright

Each tear becoming

A Pearl of great Price.

White Resonant Wind/ Electric Deer Moon of Service, Day 28


7 Ik

White Resonant Wind

I hear a Call

From the western Gate –

From Roses on the Vine


Lightning flashes from Head to Toe

Settling in the Belly –

A slow Burn of wild Desire


I feel a Call

Lifting me out of the Desert

Out of the Dark - into the Wind


Gone the dry Weeds

Gone the burning Sun

Through me a cool Breeze rises


I know this Sound

I’ve heard the Call before

Before the Locusts ate my Life


Now clear Water flows

I’ve reached an Oasis

My Thirst is sated

My Hunger ceases.

Red Rhythmic Dragon/ Electric Deer Moon of Service, Day 27

6 Imix

 Red Rhythmic Dragon

I descend at the Height of Day

Mind awake –

 Spirit’s Eye wide open

I find dead my Maidenhead

The Land of Love strewn with Bones

Dry white Skeletons sitting on Stones –

Life decayed and Care delayed

Turn Landscapes deathly gray –


 Wind blows through Bones –

Sounding moans both high and low

Torn Remnants of Delusion

For Years and Generations

No Family here –

 Only Bones


Shame eats the Flesh of Love

A gaping Maw of guilty Acts

Consumes the Meat that might sustain us –

Furies - Harpies dive

To take the Smile from smiling Lips –

A Hand too frightened to caress

Hits hard and hits again

Hearts break open –

Rage roars red


Hear the Breeze

Blowing on Bones –

Too little Tenderness too late

Can neither stop the Wind

Nor alter Fate.

Yellow Overtone Sun/ Electric Deer Moon of Service, Day 26

5 Ahau

Yellow Overtone Sun

Winter Branches 

 Charcoal Arms 

Reach past Amethyst 

Through Blue 

Beyond Blue – 

Until a salmon 

Pink Horizon 

Sets the Sun.
