Poetry: ‘Tales from the Yoni Stone’

Happy to announce a Dakini Publications website poetry section, with the launch of ‘Tales from the Yoni Stone’. First edition was published by Lulu Press in 2015. Second edition can be freely downloaded here: Tales from the Yoni Stone.

The poems/songs cover themes such as love, sex, spiritual growth, aging, womanhood and more, seen and told through female eyes.  As a preview of what is in the book I share one of the poems below:

AN INFIDELITY TO THE EXTERNAL WORLD

I am the loaded question

the harmonious contradiction

the unreliable accomplice

the brave beggar.

 

I am the impenetrable fear

the undeniable attraction

the seething truth

the dream-like mirror.

 

I am the violent lover

the quiet dictator

the screaming coward

the raging heroine.

 

I will love and destroy you.

Create and consume you.

Eat you and spit you.

Enflame and cool you.

 

I am an obvious mystery,

a cliched poem

a wanton recluse

a sick doctor.

 

I am the monk’s robe,

The whore’s heel

The mother’s kiss

The soldier’s gun.

 

I am a soul seducer

A telepathic hustler

A mind invader

An infidelity to the external world.

 

I drive the stars and moons,

emotions and moods

thoughts and dreams

I form the basis of all.

 

I am the delirious painter,

the crazy sculptor

the mad inventor

the inspired conductor.

 

I am breathing and dying

suffering and joy

desire and aversion

love and loss.

 

I am nothing yet everything,

I am there when you die

and when you are born.

I am you, you are me,

to know me is to know the REAL you.

But there is no-one to KNOW.

No-ONE,

No words, no concepts

No thoughts, no struggle

no ambition, no money

no objects, no suffering

no striving, striving, striving…

 

Just

Silence, silence, silence…..

The infinite blinding light of……..AH.

The poetry section on the website will be updated with new songs, poems and translations as and when they arise. May we never forget to sing our songs of truth, wisdom and experience!
