In the memory of Anu...

Water Fire

All of the elements came
together under the cool new moon;

Water; that which
gives life.

Fire; which is the passion
that burns in our hearts.

Air; which loves soars
high upon.

Earth; the dust from
which our bodies come
to this world.

and Woman;

she who gives all
she is creation.

Here among the elements,
they dance for her
sing for her
breathe for her
love her.

Five elements under
the moonless October sky.

Holding her hand,
he takes her to the
enchanted river.

The evening air was
mystical, electric,
yet serene, and peaceful.

Suddenly transported
into a different time;
an era which only we
could understand, embrace
and melt.

Music echoed off the
stone walls reflecting off
the shimmering water.

Teased by the fires, whose
embers rise high into the
air along the trailing
wisps of smoke.

The fire hypnotized their passion,
while desire danced in the flame
of their oneness.

A rose, plucked from the Earth herself,
her first kiss opening petals,
the sweet aroma filling her soul.

a simple symbol of everything
he promises her.

Darkness cloaks
fingers explore
lips meet, drawing closer
two souls who refuse to part.

Burning together.

Like the fires all around them...

Sparks flying in the still
of the night, reflecting
innocence, white heat and
hunger in their eyes.

He wants her.
She wants him.
And in these flames...

Among the elements of nature.

There is love.
There is nothing but the two of them.
Here, in this moment in time.

An eternity together, in the
blink of an eye.

They are one.

Lightness of the air
strength of the earth
stillness of the water
rage of the fire
beauty of her...

-I decicate this poem to my dear friend, Anu...

She was killed in a car accident on Dec. 10th.

She was an amazing poet and she had a heart of gold.

I co-wrote it with an old friend a year ago and Anu loved this poem...She knew how deeply I loved.

"...And so, my beautiful friend, your soul is filled with love and your words will forever remain...I shall miss you."

-With Much Love, Yemanja

Y, beyond the shock of losing Anu, I am touched at this tribute and feel that somewhere she is looking down on you and smiling at your thoughtfulness and love.

How blessed we are to have been touched by the purest of heart. Her poetry allowed all of us a glimpse of a woman faced with many challenges,yet she uplifted all who read her words.

Anu could make the sun shine on the darkest of days with her magic.

We will miss you very much.


Peace my heart...

Peace, my heart, let the time for the parting be sweet.
Let it not be a death but completeness.
Let love melt into memory and pain into songs.
Let the flight through the sky end in the folding of the wings over the nest.
Let the last touch of your hands be gentle like the flower of the night.
Stand still, O Beautiful End, for a moment, and say your last words in silence.
I bow to you and hold up my lamp to light you on your way.

~Rabindranath Tagore

Yemanja, thank you so much for this. She was a beautiful spirit, full of life and humor. I only had the pleasure of knowing her through our playing with wdky, but that was enough to feel her warmth touch my life. A blessing.

Many blessing unto you.
