Confounding

They never
Honored or
Respected her
While living
The father
Made certain

She was never
Rewarded or
Given awards
Or medals
Any such
Accolades

The only
Gold
Bestowed
Bands of vows
& Chains of
Implied
Meaning

Valued
Far less
Than than
Heartache
Incurred
Decades
Over

So why
Now
Why in
Death is
There a
Need
To honor
Respect
With
Displays
And show

She
Never
Wanted
Any of it
Always
Simply
Fighting
For freedom
Which now
Finally
She has

Ultimate
Freedoms of
All freedom
Release
From
Bonds
Banded
Chained
Symbols of
Necessity
Incurred
With
Vows

Her life
Brought
More
Required
Much more
Than she
Bargained
And now
She is
Finally free
Of all of it

Instead
Of honoring
Her service
When honor
No longer
Matters
Hasn't
For
Decades

Instead
Of respecting
Her sacrifices
When sacrifice
Is no more

Why isn't
Her
Memorial
A celebration
Of her victory
Her biggest
Success
Having
Gained
Her ultimate
Freedom

She would
Have wanted
A drunken
Soirée
With ashes
Dumped under
A great tree
Or in a big pond
Or in the ocean

Either way
I know
She is
Still here
In my mind
In my heart
My experience
And I've
No need
For me

Being there
Watching
Listening
Feeling
Everything
Unsaid
Covered
By words
Said

I've learned
I deserve
Better
Than
That

~Treasa Cailleach



May you know exactly what you need to do. May you know when to walk away. May you know how to let go. May you let it all just be and find yourself. May your memories be greater than anything anyone else could provide. May you know the only thing you can control is your self and your own needs. Above all may you know that the divine loves and supports you in all that you do.

Om Shanti

Pictures are of my freshly sprouting container garden and my oasis of bird feeders and fire. The dark nightime perspective, complete with moon shining through tree branches, and Progressive LGBTQ flag. It is my space this evening, and I’ve decided it will be my space every chance possible this summer. I have earned it, I created it. I deserve to enjoy it.

May you know your work is being yourself always. May you know that being yourself creatively is the best way to work. May you know that abundance is a given when you find yourself flowing the way you desire most. May you see your abundance all around and know it is safe to express yourself in whatever way you choose. May you know it is all okay, no matter if it gets done or not. Above all may you know that the divine loves and supports you in all that you do.

May you find your way through navigating tough times. May you understand how others choose doesn’t have to dictate your own choices. May you understand the most important choice of all is doing what you need to in any given moment, and always reaching for better in that moment. May you make it through dark days and hard times knowing that the other side brings light and love and eventually everything works out just fine one way or another. Above all may you know that the divine loves and supports you in all that you do.

May you have helpful miracles and appropriate abundant flow. May you have bright healthy days. May all tests help produce tangible true solutions. May loads lighten. May you have the exactly right help you needed. May being heard actually matter for your life, and may all your messages be understood. May you know that your life matters and that the divine loves and supports you in all that you do.
