Taut: a poem

by Julien Devereux Taut as a bowstring Pulled and aimed As the finish line tape On the winner’s breast Peering towards tomorrow Planted in today I am Always prepared to launch Into the wildness of being Who I am Ready to simply be In this or another place Willing, open, able.

New Warrior: a poem

by Julien Devereux From a long line of warriors I came to reclaim my own, my father’s, grandfather’s and ancestors Souls from hell. Men whose dying wish, to gently love those who loved them, was never fulfilled. It takes a lifetime for a man to become wise. We need a new kind of warrior who is wise at birth, Raised by a woman who nurtures and loves. Taught by men who have been taught how to live for a cause instead of only die for...

Shadow of You – a poem

Shadow of You. Of light and dust. And skin and bone. A man among men. You were never alone. Shadow of You. Of light and dust. You carried me then. In your skin and bone. Shadow of Me. Of light and dust. And skin and bone. A man among men. I am never alone. Shadow of You. Now light and dust. Not skin and bone. I carry you now. In my skin and bone. A man among men. We are never alone. ~philippe berthiaume 12/14/14 ~honoring the memory...

All of Me – a poem

by Brooks Harrelson All of Me All of my soul wants you, What part of me can I show you? My lover wants to hold and care for you, warm you in the cold nights, and grey spaces, wrap you in protective blankets of love against the howl of change and the grief of loss until the Spring blossoms in your soul, and filling, lights your smile and your eyes. And, I want to be held so by you. My friendly, savage beast wants to romp and play with...
