HERALD'S NIGHT OUT
THE HERALD'S NIGHT OUT
The herald, like Mercury, is the messenger.
He keeps track of family and stories,
and must be courtly and proper
in the course of his duties.
But tonight is his free night,
and the clothes come off,
his powerful voice can rest,
and he listens as he searches
in two directions for pleasure.
He has a strong and noble bearing
and is excited to be rid of his duties!
from Merlynia with drawing of Pan:
All men are JANUS.
Facing forward and back.
Pushme Pull you.
Tell me, Lord,
are two heads better
GODDESS MOVING ENERGY
written by Doug Plavin
She has flaming hands that caress the earth
Drawing out her sister's pain and beauty
Like sad tales with happy endings
But never a moment to waste
She's very good, maybe even crafty
As she drinks in roiling waters
That cascade over her tongue and say
Don't stop this compassionate work
Nestle your sinewy body
In for a 12 year night
And with the heat of her nurturing arms
She takes on the consequences of humanity
Purging the Earth
So the blues become bluer
And the greens become greener
Now the Goddess stands
A perfect marble in her white hot hand
Purified for a new millennium
*Doug Plavin is a professional musician
who is attempting new ways of courting the muse through writing, and he
"...writing a book that is attempting to
illustrate the art of running. My intention is that it will be an
invitation to running in
sacred and not so sacred places.
Finding qualitative running/outdoor experiences that use an internal barometer,
the external measurements of speed, distance,
and time. It will contain poetry, prose, essays, and contributed
Hopefully, it will inspire others to see
that running is like meditation practice on their own terms."

MEMORY OF ROCKY or THE
SPIRIT OF COMMUNITY
written by Anne McClellan
A Tribute to Rochelle Tenner, whose selfless
generosity touched innumerable lives
in such a multitude
of ways. She continues to live
in so many of us
as a constant source of inspiration.
The Rock sparkled brightly
and then rose
Illuminating our lives
with her warm glow
Her Spirit is still so strong
It will keep going on
Inspiring us forever
As we reach for the Stars
