“The queen’s chair” by Dobee Snowber

Sit on the mat
of your own wonder

Constellations of  longing
brew beneath winter
a season of the fruitful dark
is arriving

You are not separate
from the earth
  she is within your cells
calling for tenderness
  created from bone strength
  with fingers of hope

Listen in the shadows
embrace the disruptions
  attend in the unknown
here is a dear companion
the stars of your own turning.

Bodypsalm for the fruitful dark

Daphne –  Strategies for Surviving Series (2012) by Dobee Snowber

Dare to live in the fruitful dark
where what you know
as wisdom and truth
is still entering  your bones
seeping into your pores
but  monkey mind
prevents the deep release
to accept what is

The fruitful dark
knows no time schedules
has its own winter
where the riotous roots of joy
are being steeped underground
hibernating in the folds of your body

You are more afraid of your projections
than what is truly real
feel each inch of sorrow
make friends with broken dreams
and wait for the larger dream
for your soul’s purpose
to be brought forth

Darkness and light are lovers
companions for the journey
become intimate with the night
and know your only task
is to stay with and
a b i d e
in the fruitful dark.
