The Numinous Inside of Us

It’s filled w joy and tension love,
Flapping wings like a pure dove.
It has a mind, a heart, a soul-
Birthing amongst thorns and blood.
Inside the heart beyond the stud
that’s where it lives – a bubble tugs.
A longing, a desired nod,
that’s where it lives,
the numinous luminous beauty.

Oh how it longs to be seen.
To be close to soul of choice.
The place of love and song and noise.

But there it lives inside the cave,
Hiding yet can’t be contained.
It births inside enchanted hearts
Connection can’t tear it apart.
Like ropes from heaven
Catching us,
A lively veil of numinousness
Waits. It waits.

To catch us from our deepest selves,
To hold us tight in midnight realm,
To be seen before the ego comes,
To lead us every single time.

This luminous numinous

inside of all of us,

yearns to be heard
yearns to be seen
yearns to make a difference,
Cure the green.


Echoes vibrate past hollow chambers
It lives so deeply we can’t remember.
Layers of space sandwiched to gather
Pain so much painful chatter.
We Wonder- we question-
Do we possibly matter?

So much anger suffering
Hate filled talk subsides
Merry gonna wish a ride
And we’re longing

To see change
To have NO more blame
No more different unacceptance
Tolerance for you-
Luv for me.

But it’s not here-
This numinousness
Why won’t it land before the strain?
Why won’t it paint a different change?
Why can’t it interrupt the pain?


Oh all the painful chatter

Yes luminous numinous is inside of us,
A stirring it can fill the hole,
The gaping void we deem to tug,
Longing to become replugged.

It oozes into thoughts and deeds
The numinous air lives as it breathes.
As final breaths rise the numinous smoke moves
Through lofty thoughts of love it soothes.

All animals can feel its warmth,
All butterflies flap to elongate its dwarf,
The earth rotates to have it slither,
Across the globe and galaxy come hither.

The numinous love cannot be tamed, stopped, killed, murdered, or maimed
Blinded, foiled, or willed to stop.
It can’t be taken, or harmed, or lured, or sacrificed to Gods or Lords.

It has its presence up beyond the place that even we were born.
It’s holiness cannot be touched

This numinousness inside of us

It’s here to stay
Despite the hurt,
here to live to breathe to bloom,
Never can it be removed.
Its holiness cannot be touched
By anyone except for us.

It can be reached,
Tapped,
Explored,
It can begin to fly and soar,
It can exist outside the realm,
Of hate speech pain and prison cells.
It can lead,
It can reign,
It can bring about the change we long to hold

It can be done!
It can warm,
It can exist,

This numinous veil inside of us
This numinous beauty inside of us
This numinous luminous we all lust.
