“She’s been there” – Lucia Sullivan

Art: Josephine Wall

******

“She’s been there.
In the moonlight.
Where the muddy water splashed by in a summer breeze.
And Indian arrow heads lay hidden in the fields far past the beacon of water drops and moonlit light spots.
She ran thru the dirt and laid on the ground.
Looking up at the best of what life had to offer.
Open skies.
An open mind .
And dreams that led to lost love.
But love.
Love none the less.
It was better to feel the breaks.
The burn.
The painful pulses of life .
Than to close her eyes and wallow face down in the dirt.
She’s been there.
When the bow broke.
When the cold winds blew and frosted her fingers and heart to the sheer brink of her shivering blood.
She danced in the rain.
And rode with the lightning.
She let go,
And she loved and lost
And loved deeper and loved longer and lost some more.
But she won.
In the vision.
She’s been there.
She and her heart flying in the open skies.
Too big to close .
Too lofty to forget.
She lived on the edges of razor blades love kiss.
And it’s never over.
And it never kills the caged bird.
Because she,
She learned to fly.
And she can fly far,
Far away.
Into daybreak and sundown over oceans of sail boats.
On a warm day going down with the sun disc of life.
She’s been there.
And the sky is too vast to stop now.
So she flies.
She flies with the heartbeats of laughter.
She flies with a heartbeat of love.
She’s moving.
And now and then,
She may land,
On a shoulder.
And if ever you felt her touch down.
You will always remember.
She’s been there.”

“I am going back” by Lucia Sullivan

******

“I am going back.
Back to the beginning.
When angel hairs bloomed out white
And blue eyes sparkled through sunbeams in the morning.
I am going back home to the first of things.
Before,
Before the brindle hairs started blooming and the sunbeams turned into a stinging pain.
I found my way forward in a myriad of unusual circumstances.
But instead,
I pulled upward toward the sky.
I may back flip my way towards her.
Back to the start.
So that I may find the meaning in her tender eyes.
The real meaning .
Before the pulling,
The pushing and the scrambling began.
And I will find her in the hallway.
Where sunbeams shot thru the windows and covered dust tracks ,
Delicious and inviting.
I will find her there watching quietly.
Wanting what she wants now.
And before she has been starved too deeply.
Of the love that she needs for her soul,
I will tell her.
That she herself is love.
I am going back.
I am going back for her.
And when her tiny hand meets mine.
I will pull her into my heart.
And she,
Will finally be home.”

Carolina Morning by Lucia Sullivan

William Mangum Art North Carolina

******

“You can keep your diamonds and pearls.
I have the sunshine.
The light thru the Willows on a cool Spring morning.
And you can cross stitch me thru time.
But you can not take the essence from my soul.
You can build your sky scraper tall on a hill.
With glass windows and silver spoons for breakfast,
On balconies that I can never reach.
But I have the dew drops off of an old tin roof.
Glistening spider webs and the smell of the earth and summer rain.
My essence is in the creek bed by the two old pines that never speak too loudly.
They only whisper my name in a breeze that blows across the strawberry patch.
That blooms as I bloom.
And is as sweet as a Carolina morning.
You can keep your diamonds and pearls.
The creator has given me an entire sky.
With blankets of whites and blues and yellows and golds.
Forever gold.
That can not be bought or sold or lost or stolen.
I have the sunshine and all of the life inside of its glitter.
All that glitters is my gold.
And I am part of the love light shining.”

And I may never go back – Lucia Sullivan

Redhead Fairy Art Print Dragonfly Fairy by Sascalia @ Etsy

******

“And I may never go back.
To that same place on that same night.
Under that same shade tree in the dark shadows of the midnight.
I may never go right back to the smell of sweet pines and burning embers.
In the cold that would freeze you to bones and madness.
When wild hearts beat the drums of life with insanity and unchained energy of soft bodies blazing out at the moon.
I may never see you laughing there.
With that long lasting roar of knowing.
You remember how sure you were.
That something was always going right.
Because we,
Were right there in the misty moonlight of living.
Too new to break.
Too bright to burn out.
And I may never go back.
But I have that moonshine in my pocket forever.
I will ride the lightening energy of becoming.
Just more time,
To see you there.
Maybe I will find you in a familiar spot.
Where everything seems the same,
But different somehow.
And I may never go back.
Because I will pull you with me.
Into another place.
Under the same moon.
And we will call her our sister.
And she will shine,
Like never before.”

I will be home – Lucia Sullivan

Hummingbird and Forest Spirits by Jennifer Baird

******

“Maybe you will come back.
And we will meet in the woods there,
By the old farm house.
Maybe we will breathe together again.
In the silence that beamed sugar lights out of my soul.
We can sit quietly in the night air.
Warm and dewy and buzzing with moon lights birth right.
In that little house down the old dirt road,
Where summertime was quiet and loud with life.
Where I sat on a black leather couch and listened to the summer bugs outside ,
Blending with my spirit.
Maybe you will come back.
And I will listen to the theme song from Dallas,
Play on a small t.v. ,
In a little room.
Full of presence and an in depth wonderment,
That only your quiet being could mold with.
Maybe we will laugh again.
In that same spot by the window.
Covered with plastic ,
And beating wildly in the wind.
Maybe we will find each other in the building blocks of the South.
Where some long dirt road leads to a portal of the past.
Or perhaps,
One in the future.
And things will be beautiful again.
But they will seem oddly different,
Without the house,
Without the beating plastic in the window.
All that matters is that you are there.
Within those walls of captured time,
We would create new houses with new windows.
And listen to the bugs breathe and give us a life so familiar.
That we had never lost anything.
We had just returned to one another.
Maybe you will come back.
And our winding roads will hold down the summertime.
For a long time.
One more time.
And I ,
I will be home.”

You could have stayed for ever – Lucia Sullivan

******

“You spilled over like honey.
Sticky wings on slick green grass.
You could have stayed forever.
However long,
Forever lasts.
You were a forest fairy.
I was a lost soul rising.
You were a tender light;
Merry.
I was a blinding light shining.
We met in the darkness of midnight.
Under the Summer moon.
We touched in the darkness of moon beams.
That warmed and revived and consumed.
We gathered our lives by the moonlight.
And whispered our light to the world.
We found our presence as insight.
A fairy of light;
And a girl.
The pond whistled sounds of a life there.
One that was a mystical muse.
No other could have replayed it.
That night was a symphony of new.
We touched our fingers together.
We touched our hearts to the wind.
In madness and energy blinking.
We knew we would never meet again.
I had not seen you in winter.
I had not seen you in spring.
I had not found you in fall’s dead leaves.
You were my mystical ring.
In summer I heard you in wind chimes.
Your scent carried by like a rose.
Your laughter was found in the free birds.
That landed wherever they chose.
Summer was always about you.
Summer always will be,
Where fairies and broken winged Angels,
Are carried by a mystical breeze.”

“The Angel In The Flower Field” (For my grandmother) – Lucia Sullivan

“The Angel In The Flower Field” (For my grandmother)

“We went to look for flowers.
Deep in the woods that day.
The clouds were a blanket of heaven.
The ground was a bucket of clay.
You parted the branches and shuttered.
You pushed the weeds down very tight.
Behind you there in the shadows.
I walked with you into the light.
You picked and you plundered the roots there.
While I gazed off in the sky.
My body was tiny and fragile.
My spirit was huge, wide and high.
I felt the shutters of heaven.
Standing bare feet on the moss.
Green and wet with its beauty.
I was never so happy to be lost.
I felt her coming upon me.
She stood there in the bright light.
She glistened and warmed me with love glow.
I would never be afraid of the night.
She stood as tall as the trees there.
Shining down like a lamp.
Warm and blinding and consuming.
She branded me like a stamp.
The Angel,
She stood in the portal.
While you were there bending your knees.
Picking and gathering flowers.
She washed in and out of me.
I never whispered a word of her.
I never said it out loud.
Her gift was covered with wisdom.
She gave me a healing shroud.
No flowers have ever bloomed as bright.
Than those we gathered that day.
I must have been about four then.
When the Angel showed me the way.
Now flowers bloom in my heart spots.
That no one can ever remove.
They bloom and they flicker and flutter.
Especially,
When I think of you.”

“I had always been able to see” – Lucia Sullivan

Golden Butterfly art by Gothic Ice Cream @ DeviantArt

******

I had always been able to see

” I had always been able to see.
Acutely aware of the spaces in between.
Touching faces with tender hands.
Long gazes into faces and eyes,
Searching for the miracle,
For the missing pieces.
That I must,
Have left behind.
In the yonder world.
Beyond the sky.
In the stillness of dreams and flight paths.
Where Angels make filtered noises to remind them of the music here.
As close as they could get without materializing.
Making me sing down here for their amusement.
Now I remember,
How I longed for a voice.
So,
I traded in my wings.
To speak.
To laugh.
To feel the passion and burning of emotions,
In motions of time slots.
Here in the weight world of lunatics and shouting.
Where voices are so heavy they can blow up the world.
But I needed to see.
I needed to feel.
I needed to sing and feel the sway of a drum beat.
So,
I traded in my wings for some chains and collars.
When I removed them,
My spirit went wild.
And the Angels pushed me back to the floor.
Reminding me of my sacrifice.
I had traded in whispers for expressions of great feeling.
So,
I must feel.
As time fades into night and my spirit takes her journey home.
In dreamland,
I will remember the weightlessness of the yonder world.
Where I could not sing too loud.
Where I could not know the feel of cool water on a hot blurry day.
Where I could not walk down a long dirt road and feel the cool soil on my bare feet.
But oh.
Oh,
How I long to fly .
And tonight I will fly.
Back to the yonder world.
In my journey dream home.”

“The Old Place” – Lucia Sullivan

Lucia Sullivan

******

The Old Place

” Down out the old place in the morning dew,
Tin roof shining with the dawning,
New.
The old kitchen sat right across the way.
Grandpa sat on the steps with few words to say.
He patted my back and gave me a hug.
I could feel the warmness of his heart give a tug.
His overalls defined him in their stripes and blue.
Skinny and strong with a smile or two.
We went walking down the old dirt road.
To pick some berries and maybe find a toad.
He was brisk and fast as he went that way.
In the dusty sunshine on a fine summer day.
He pulled off his hat and starting filling it up.
I giggled and helped him with a small tin cup.
We walked back fast and I held his hand.
He was as gentle and strong as any man’s man.
I walked up the rocks and then up the steps.
We handed them to grandma and gave a long hard breath.
Fans sat in corners and blew my hair around.
A small plastic cup of water and bare feet to the ground.
Down at the old place in the morning dew.
Where everything will be,
Forever new.”

Astral Travel – Lucia Sullivan

City of Angels by Bernadette Wulf @ Wulf Visionary Art

Astral Travel

“Drifting off to dream,
In the twilight zone.
Far from body, house and home.
Astral traveling at midnight.
Full moons circle,
Past my flight.
Wings of doves and ravens feet.
Upwards toward the highest peak .
The flight of Angels,
Past my head.
I knew that I
Was asleep,
I was not dead.
I drifted out,
In the twilight zone.
In astral flight.
So far from home. “

“I had been a thousand faces”

– ♥ –

“I had been a thousand faces.
Maybe more.
Until ,
I met you.
I had broken every glass.
Every plate had fallen.
None left spinning,
In the madness ,
Of finding you.
Back.
Back to the meager beginning.
To the woods and the pines.
To the moaning’s at midnight,
Of strange animals.
Animals that were hidden to me in the day.
I had searched for them ,
And their noises.
Back to the bees buzzing around two shabby wooden boxes,
That I did not understand .
That I knew to respect.
Somehow.
Someway.
I walked in my footsteps backwards.
So far back that I could feel the water in her belly,
Swell up around me.
And what I found,
Was not a beginning.
Not a beginning of anything.
Just a rebirth.
A constant knowing.
A constant presence.
That I had been .
A million times.
In a million different places.
And all that mattered,
Was how much ,
I had loved.”

“You Talked To Me” – Lucia Sullivan

At: Maryam Morrison on Love

******

“You Talked To Me”

” You talked to me where the wounds had left holes in your soul.
You spoke in foreign tongues of negative and hopeless voices.
I told you to leave them alone or they would stretch bigger.
But you refused.
Those voices had taken a strong hold.
You lived there.
Bleeding.
I mimicked you a time or two.
I heard your voice in my despair.
I reminded myself of your madness and I quickly became a seamstress of the wounded area.
I still believe,
You could be sewn up.
By a miraculous hand .
One,
With a needle so fine and true,
That not even you,
Could pick apart the stitches.
I have envisioned your transformation a thousand times.
Back home.
Back to life.
Whole.
And in that bridge too far,
Is hope.
And that,
That is my one and only voice. “

” If a Tree Falls In the Forest” – Lucia Sullivan

Mixed Media Girl Sister Painting ~ by Sascalia @ Etsy

******

” If a Tree Falls In the Forest”

” The field was mist and shivers,
In the dewy Spring of Pines.
The soil smelled like the rivers,
Where the creek made Willows whine.
I walked with no restrictions.
No obligation to the world.
Just a skip a hop and limber.
A Country,
Tree feet girl.
There was no noise or trembles.
That the world,
She whistles loud.
No hustling of the people’s,
In a stomach aching ,
Crowd.
Only clouds above me.
With the rocks under my feet.
Walking in the silent woods,
Where new and old would meet.
I walked where grandma walked there.
When she too had heard no noise.
She did not need much either.
No town or treasure toys.
Just earth things in their beauty.
The moss on ground to touch.
The soft soil caressing my bare feet.
I miss that comfort,
So much.
We traveled in the sunshine.
Each season had it’s day.
The cold reminded us to be thankful.
The warmth reminded us to play.
We were forever melted there.
Like hearts carved on the trees.
Two little girls ,
Raised by the dust.
And carried by the breeze.”

“That Old Wood Porch” – Lucia Sullivan

“That Old Wood Porch”

” I welcomed you,
Like a shiny object.
In my eyes,
You were as bright,
As the sun drop spots,
In a spiders web in the Spring.
I had never seen,
Your suffering.
I faded into a daydream,
When your smile came out.
I heard the water droplets thru the water spout.
Where the well sat silent and still.
And the trees bent slow and easy to hear us whispering.
Thud, thud, thud.
The water gave you presence.
A backdrop,
For you laughter.
Oh,
That soul.
You had escaped,
Some long lost eternity.
Where Angels breath blew you,
Thru the Southern skies of home.
You fell into a world of clocks.
And tick tocks.
Not meant to stay too long.
I welcomed you like a shiny object.
A reminder that even Angels,
Dance in the rain.
A shadowy prescence,
Thru a young girl’s window pane.
In a world full of of wooden wrist watches,
You were golden.
So for now,
You are,
Forever frozen.
In the window pane,
Of my childhood heart.”

“The Winds of Change”

“I held you in such high regards.
Just your smile.
Your soft face.
Made for a good reason,
To love you.
But there were complications.
When the wind came,
And blew you about a bit.
Your leaves started falling,
And your timbers began to shiver and scream,
At me.
As if I alone,
Had brought the breeze.
But it wasn’t me,
And it wasn’t you.
It was the winds of change.
And in them,
I blew far away.”
