A midi-week poem to celebrate the book launch: “Heavy Lift”

Yesterday (July 7, 2020) I was feeling really wiped out; very low energy, tired, weighed down. Maybe it was the weekend full moon and eclipse; maybe it’s the heat and heavy weather, heavy energy; maybe it’s the ongoing pandemic and the disaster that seems unabated here in the US; maybe it is the collapse of everything we thought to be true and dear as we struggle under the weight of not knowing…

I feel better today. And it feels good to have launched the collaborative book I’m a part of (see yesterday’s post). Maybe that’s one weight lifted from my shoulders. And to celebrate this I did return to my poetry journal to ask some questions about this weighty time:

Heavy Lift

Does the Sun feel the Moon’s weight
As He lifts Her above the horizon
To better see Himself in Her mirror?

Is it a heavy lift?

Does God feel Man’s weight
As She lifts Him out of darkness
To better reflect Her image?

Is it a heavy lift?

Evolution is hard work for the gods
Raising Consciousness up a rung
To better realize creation’s Light.

It is a heavy lift!

Ascension is a steep and lonely climb;
It is an inside job for the strong of heart;
Energy runs high in this rarified Love.

It is a heavy lift!

    Thanks for your post. I always enjoy them. This one echoes so much of what I am feeling.  Heavy and tired of living in the unknown. Feel like sliding backwards. Anyway, gratitude and love. You made me feel better. 🥴🤸‍♀️

    Wow. This is so powerful. Do you feel like sharing it in the Vol 2 or the UG groups? I think it would help the groups to know you even better. Just a suggestion. A step in the direction of you sharing more?

    Much love and appreciation,

      Thanks for the suggestion, Lilia; I shared it from my QigongistheWay.com page to both groups!
