Transitions

It amazes me we have hit 2016! Welcome to the new year my friends, I am grateful to be enjoying the possibilities with you. It is my tradition to take time at the beginning of the year to examine my creative work and ensure I am positioned to maximize my energy and voice. In result today I am thrilled to announce my poetry blog The World Poetized, started in 2011, will now be consolidated into my site at www.careyroseoconnell.com.

Every-death-is-the-birth

I am fortunate to have found versatility through my creative expression and this merger will allow for better delivery to all those that spend time with my worlds. Bringing my blog here also allows me to begin to share words and vision for other channels of my work. To honor my path of words to this moment I will be re-posting some of my favorites from The World Poetized here, each with a bit of the background behind the poem and its creation in a series titled The Poets Cut.

I am aware by letting go of my original blog I release 5 years of hard earned readers via WordPress and I want to take a moment to thank everyone that has taken time with my expression and hope you will continue to follow me here or on social media to keep our connection going. I also want to thank the people of WordPress.com for such a easy to use service. It was very helpful to have such an integrative tool as a newly sprouting poet in today’s digital medium.

Everything is flux, everything is impermanent and creativity commands change and so I bid the old adieu and welcome in the new, everly grateful for both.

Always in words
Carey Rose

Metanoia

looking into eyes
of two faced stories
one side voice
two side pencil

mingled footprints
walk garden morning
glories bloom to wilt
in parallel journey

tracing echo words
with dull points
chasing sentence
beginning from end

soul speak counts
lead mind hides
one hundred tears
falling from sky

running color revealing
pellucid waters
voice inhaled word
word exhaled voice

swirled in puddle
splashed in echo
story made song
walking into the duet

Walking Mesa

2013-10-27 08.45.56

We are the moment between wind and earth,
the walking mesa of rebirth.

We are the seed layers of large tree dreams.
Powering the streaming of the spiraled life force,
we germinate light from the dark, giving deep rooted
knots the desire to realize their potential leaves.

We are the moment between wind and earth,
the walking mesa of rebirth.

We are the tears gushing forth, flooding old
rough passages through bottle fountain eyes.
We speak in liquid tongues, nourishing
the land, boundless energy in roaring
freedom. Lovers to seeds, from our connection,
the releasing of spiraled fertility.

We are the moment between wind and earth,
the walking mesa of rebirth

Autopsy

Risen by the three stars of night
placed in the center of infinity
I became the beginning at the end of light

The last of blue sky opened in star spray
as the faces of creation looked through
and evolution’s gravity came true

Purposed by the first after last breath
the cellular chant ignited imaginal verse
and I became the life of passing death

I lept out of body and into air
reading words falling from eyes
umbilically joined with contrail ties

I found the center of seven star seas
and danced in the palms of angels
singing the psalms of universal-ality

They returned me home to take place
with the blueprinted markings of one
covering my new flesh in the veil of grace

Bard of the new language that binds
I voice as we the master songs
playing in the field in which all belong
