Before you sleep tonight

The Cosmic Dancer

Before you sleep tonight,

Consider all

the night-blooming flowers

opening this moment

before the moon.

Consider all the owls

leaping off their branches

to fly on silent wings

into the night.

Consider the earthen majesty

of the combined dreams

of the forest.

Consider the light exchanged

between the stars

in their great web

of the night.

Consider the sentience

within each living thing~

everything alive

with reverence.

Consider the ancient temple

of the hills

and the monks

that are the mountains

donning their silhouetted robes

to hold vigil for you

each night.

Consider all

the god inside of you tends to

while you sleep

with such tenderness

and incredible intelligence~

organizing your whole

inner life,

soothing its edges,

doing all it might

to make you more

hospitable to love.

Consider, the whirlers

up all night to dance

their prayers

while the dervish planets

do the same.

Let the lullaby of the worldwide

chorus of crickets

wrap itself around you tonight.

Be held

by the blanket of stars.

Sleep well, my dear.

All existence is spun of magic

and you are outside

of nothing.

Receive all the blessings this earth

is perpetually trying to give you

And rest soundly

on a deep bed

of awe

and thanks.

I have joined with many parents affected with the surreal , yet accepted issue of child abuse via Pathogenic Parenting / Domestic abuse. As a survivor of Domestic Abuse, denial abounded that 3 sons were not affected. In my desire to be family to those who have found me lacking . As a survivor of psychiatric abuse, therapist who abused also and toxic prescribed medications took me to hell on earth with few moments of heaven. I will share my life, my experiences and my studies and research.. I will talk to small circles and I will council ; as targeted parents , grandparents , aunts , uncles etc. , are denied contact with a child for reasons that serve the abuser ...further abusing the child. I grasp the trauma and I have looked at the lost connection to a higher power.. I grasp when one is accustomed to privilege, equality can feel like discrimination.. Shame and affluence silences a lot of facts , truths that have been labeled "negative". It is about liberation of the soul from projections of a alienator , and abuser ..
