Spring rain:

Come inside my nightgown,

~ Natsume Soseki

time of revelry and bawdiness, stimulating and life-making. promise making and promise breaking, cleansing relationships of dis-harmonies. hand-fasting and tying-the-knot. fire-leaping. green fields breathing under the warm sun.    

 
 
listen. ponder. smell. participate. return. stare. walk. imbibe. pick. pet. write. raise. nourish. teach. play. hurl. hug.

(gratitude for inspiring wordsmiths starhawk, ruth barrett, and marni norwich.)

u's nandhi bull and lingam/yoni

more lingams in yonis 😉

we didn’t have a maypole. but the symbols were all over, yha. horns and antlers. stamen and pistils. pokey-outy things and vessels. almond shaped spirals and stripes. openings to be pierced. love to be made. boundaries to be softened. transformations to be simply uncovered and danced about. be. you.

those sutures! (thanx p!)
