Opening to the tightness in my hips the weakness in my shoulders the strength in my legs /

Surrendering to the hormones in my blood the softness in my belly the crookedness of my spine /

Embracing the milk in my breasts the asymmetry of my face the truth in my smile /

Seeing light through my eyes hope through my words the future through my children.

my full moon super powers

my full moon super powers--

Fly. See all of creation from up there. Skip through space to embody unknown dimensions. Walk to the other side of this planet. Understand the nature of beauty. Feel history as it pulses under my skin. Read a book by picking it up. Traverse the highway of time. Float. Levitate. Hover. Become everyone at once. Speak without words. Communicate across blank spaces. Shapeshift. Tumble through clouds. Read my heart aloud. Hold conviction as strong as the ocean. See God in the looking glass. Memorize the map engraved upon the deepest layer of spirit. Live the loftiest existence of my soul's imagination. Catch my baby's cries with unconditional kisses. Hold them forever. Grant grandiose wishes with the wink of my eye. Erase conflict with the nod of my head. Become the wind. Exhale abundance. Hear the echoes of animals. Unpeel the scars of living. Disappear. Reappear. Remember. Turn inside out. Show my insides to the kindred. Love all the children. Breathe in the babies. The crown of each head. Wrap my arms around the ocean. Unwrap the meaning of now. Sit in the stillness of sun. Bloom. Keep faith between my fingers, always close to my fingertips. Intuit without doubting. Play life like a movie. Slow motion. Rewind. Fast forward. Repeat. Open. Heart, mind, soul. Of infinite boundaries.

A place for creative writing.

I created this blog to share my creative writing; mainly poetry but also short stories and responses to writing prompts.

I blog about motherhood, mindfulness and the creative life at Lucille in the Sky.

I am the founder and herbal alchemist of Herbal Philosophy. We craft artisanal remedy teas designed by Mother Nature herself.

I tweet as lucilleinthesky and I keep a photo journal on instagram as lucilleinthesky.

I have a thing for the sky. I named my daughter Skyla.

I have a thing for God in its many iterations. I named my first daughter Giovanna which means God is Gracious.

I write novels when no one is looking. I like to explore themes of authenticity, materialism, addiction and spirituality. If you want to know more about my stories, email me lucy [at] lucilleinthesky [dot] com.

I believe in the words of Henry David Thoreau: all good things are wild and free.
