Not Rosaries Nor Missals – Stillness And Dances, 2016

Standard

*

I satisfy myself
in circles of light
stillness and dances

it’s the music
within that slows
us down and we

wonder and return
to these lovely
planes

a step or two
to understanding
the sound

silence broken
by golden lights
we curl up

we are being
picked up

Not Rosaries Nor Missals – Evening Breeze, 2016

Standard

*

I end up at times
visiting old friends
dinners stretching

over time feeding
our souls
the privilege

of recalling
the spirit’s
visitations

our hearts
a candle burning
quietly

steadily shaking
in the evening
breeze leaves

we are made
to fall and to die
full of colors

when it’s season

Not Rosaries Nor Missals – Hands Cupped – July 2015

Standard

*

I do less I know
I travel more the spirit’s
paths than collect good deeds

I sit and think what
a sea my life has been
stretched between lands

under tempests or requited
as oil on hot days he was
above all looking down

pouring rain to add to me
when I felt deserted
hands cupped to

collect me

Not Rosaries Nor Missals – The Look Of My Soul – July 2015

Standard

*

in between loving cats
and feeding elders
roaming paths

it was the caressing
with my eyes of the olive
trees barks twisted by

the winds and the lack
of water is that the look
my soul has she had no

idea life was business
to attend same the church
and the cats and the elderly

Not Rosaries Nor Missals – Past Locked Doors – July 2015

Standard

*

I was taken
behind the altar
to the choir seats

even behind that
past locked doors
to private rooms

beautifully adorned walls
filled with secrets doors
compartments carved

floors long planned
huge desks to think at
pondering villagers’ lives

I could not stop filling
the spaces looking
around feeling everything

under my fingertips
the wood and marble
the walls encrusted

Not Rosaries Nor Missals – Faithfulness Fulfilled – July 2015

Standard

*

decades later I would
get the privilege to enter
a catholic church at night

overseeing the sea on
top of a hill beautifully
decorated dark inside

after hours I felt
honored to be able to
observe and absorb

what really that was all
about to walk by the votive
candles pick up the consumed

ones and replace them
my new unlit ones such
beautiful neatness

to read the album of
prayers just before
the altar and wish

each one to be met
faithfulness fulfilled
people to be elevated

Not Rosaries Nor Missals – Votive Candles – July 2015

Standard

*

votive candles
were there for us
a wonder to look at

they didn’t smell good
then – they just burn
and piss the melted

nor small or round – they
pushed themselves up
as we peeled off excesses

we sat quietly enchanted
they made great shadows
calling us up in and out

Not Rosaries Nor Missals – Penalty Prayers – July 2015

Standard

*

it was long gone
from my memory
the times of confession

long penalty prayers
counting the rounds
impatient to get

to the candles

before the priest
try with friends to
turn off

the flame with bare
fingers to pour the
wax on our hands

to measure resistance
and daring pulses
to learn novelties

Not Rosaries Nor Missals – I Was Right – July 2015

Standard

*

in darkness I gathered
knowledge success and fame
they spell as bulimia none filling

as far as I let the ego talk louder
it forged my thoughts I was right
of course everyone else wrong

gently I was allowed to run
kindly led to a revelation’s
my own throne was darkness

I had no power to leave
blindness bounded me
I was out of touch but for him

Not Rosaries Nor Missals – Behind Bars – July 2014

Standard

*

each day I forged
a mantra to change
ordinary life into bad

it was freedom
I searched for the most
while sinking behind bars

the harder my heart
the farther the key
the darker the vision

Not Rosaries Nor Missals – God is Dead – July 2014

Standard

*

god is dead was my
victor’s cry I had books
proving that and a pencil

never anger was fiercer
nor larger memory loss
I had taken on a mission

not to miss on any
transgression many
doors were there to bust

Not Rosaries Nor Missals – Survival – July 2014

Standard

*

Easter ceased to exist
I didn’t even realize
but it was gone

I went on a battle
field and inhabited
a barrack there

it moved with me
across the world I had
plenty of ammunitions

each moving object
was my target I had
no more spirituality

my religion was survival

Not Rosaries Nor Missals – I Was Marked – July 2014

Standard

*

after my first
kiss I entered a
world of enchantment

started to feel
ready for sisterhood
to fight for women’s right

this was the epitome
I really should not attend
rebellious I was marked

the worst were the looks
I gathered as dandelions
transmuting in spring

jagged as their leaves

Not Rosaries Nor Missals – A Candle – July 2014

Standard

*

it appears as if
a candle can
initiate a prayer

shun away
darkness warming
near the ice of fear

a soft walk in
pitch darkness
afraid of vibrations

creepiness of the night
of the deep unknown
black out enforced

the bands of sleep
to fall upon my eyes
slumber on the eyelids

I never felt this way

Not Rosaries Nor Missals – Enough Stains – July 2013

Standard

*

the nuns frowned at me
a wet blanked on the upward
holy smoke of prayer
.
God would no speak
to little girls another
door slammed

.
on its squeaky hinges
not sure which sound
was more painful

 .

.
I had bought for the occasion
a dark gentle wool kilt – I felt I was
in for something important

.
each thread of  that wool
received my tears, the sweat
of my hands grief stricken

.
it kept its dark hue for long
was kept in a wardrobe
enough stains on it

.
