To the Altar of our Belonging

We know so much more
than we think we know.

The whole entire world
and worlds beyond our own
are etched on the inside of our hearts.

What if you stopped
to really see
and to really hear?

Eyes towards the sky
our vision doesn’t end with the blue sky above
we can see beyond into the great expanse of the future.

Ears to the ground
we can hear the creaking of all the old bones
everything that has come before us.

None of it begins or ends with us
it has begun beyond the constraints of time
and will end well after the decay of this physical vessel.

You can see and hear everything
from past present and future
if you know how to truly see and hear.

If you know the etchings in your heart
that have been there before you knew
that will be there as you continue to be

With everything, as everything.

The Whole World Just Wants To Speak To You

The warm Solstice air,
taking shape in every wisp of cloud.

The entire spectrum of evening colors,
reaching towards you.

Stop and Listen.
Listen and Rejoice.
The whole world just wants to speak to you.

The Apprentice

Every step on the path
Unsure and uncertain
Feeling the other knowing
In the Heart
No sound in the voice
The urge is
Present and clear
The way forward
Obscured
I can only offer
My most sincere
And open desire
To apprentice
With the Mysteries of Life.

The Moon My Compass
{A short poem}

I don’t know the way
Out of this deep dark.
The Moon my guide
Compass to my heart
Sheds the Light
{In cycles} one step at a time.

Every Breath a Blessing

Sacred Smoke - Jenn Grosso

Divine Breath
{Poem by Jenn Grosso}

The wisp of Sacred Smoke
Calling me
To slow my world
Right down
And take a breath
And another
And yet another.

To remember this place
Dwelling inside
That never leaves me.

Breathing in
I am
Breathing out
I have already arrived.

You Are All the Stars

All The Stars - Jenn Grosso July 2014

{All the Stars} Artwork by Jenn Grosso on The Universe of Now

I’m so excited to be a contributor over on The Universe of Now! Such an inspiring website. Check out my first post here where I share my newest poem and artwork.

{You Are All the Stars}

Falling in and out
I AM, then become undone
Pulling it together again

Hold onto yourself
Hold on and let go
Hold on

Resting in the infinite
Just where you belong
Where you have come from

Coursing with the flow
It becomes easy again
To shine with all the stars

Lighting up the entire sky above.
