Taller

He was taller
than me

I don’t remember
how tall
six foot something

I was always
walking behind him
watching his
slim hips
sway
in faded jeans

When I first met him
he looked like Jesus

Later
he looked like
Freddie Mercury

I like
the interchangeability
of Jesus
and Freddie Mercury

I was not the Madonna
but still seemed
to always have
a baby
at my breast

and a scarf
wound
around
my neck
with dreams
of Isadora Duncan
and the freedom
of dance
in my head

I baked
sweet things
for him
and filled him
with pots
of herbal teas

He wrote songs
sang for me
in ways
he could not possibly know

I always walked
behind him
let him tower
over me

There are
moments
of beauty
so ineffable
that all you can do
is stand back
and let their light
touch you
knowing they will
never last

He was taller
than me

Full Moon In Aquarius: Magic in the Air

Moon Dancer

Well, everyone….

Today the moon is full in Aquarius. Yes, Aquarius, that sign that conjures up images of wizards and scientists. This is a time when the Cosmos conspires with us to discover our Inner Genius, our Inner Magician. Playful Jupiter is also dancing with the Sun in Leo expanding that Leo ability to ‘creatively will’ things in to place, as well as feelings of confidence and a general feeling of ‘everything’s gonna be alright’.

Let’s face it. Things have been a little rough out there the last few weeks. Today is a day to shake the cobwebs loose, dance your dance, embrace your life and dream big. This is a time of great magic. Choose your words well but don’t forget to speak your truth. Let your dreams become reality. Believe. Dance. Sing. Share your joy.Namaste’ Y’all,

Robin

“Scientists have calculated that the chances of something so patently absurd actually existing are millions to one.
But magicians have calculated that million-to-one chances crop up nine times out of ten.”
