Peace and quiet
no voices, inside or out
only the birds and the breeze
Inner peace
no voices, inside or out
only the om and the light
Shared peace
no voices, inside or out
only the smiles and the hugs
World peace
no voices, inside or out
only the love, yours and mine

Peirano:Last Phase.jpg

The moon wanes

 

the time of death nears 

and the old becomes compost for the new

 

The dark goddess 

rules the darkness with her white light 

and finally rests within

 

She will arise 

to seduce me with precious gifts 

and I will celebrate

Peirano_Surrender_ oil_36x24_1950.jpg

I quietly surrender 

to the depths of the dark 

 

I let go of the finality of endings 

and welcome the offerings 

of new beginnings 

 

I ruthlessly discard what 

no longer serves

 

I release the madness of the mind 

and embark in this mysterious 

 

phase with no fear

 

I openly surrender to

the 

wise messages within 

 

I let free the wild and primal energies 

and await the sacred gifts of rebirth

Peirano_Fall.jpg

Like the short lived hues of the fallen leaves 

 

the scant grays appear on the mirror 

forecasting the white winter

 

The dry and chilled breeze 

make the leaves crumble to pieces 

and my skin slowly shrivel

 

I fall pale with exhaustion receding into the earth

 

letting go of what’s been 

 

awaiting the fiery and powerful season of transformation

Peirano_just when it all falls apart.JPG

 

Just when I give up

 

Just when everything 

goes wrong 

and all things fall apart

 

and the torment is unbearable

 

Just then 

the light appears 

 

with hope amidst the chaos

 

reminding me that it’s futile to resist the inevitable transformation

 

the metamorphosis

 

that will be me

Peirano_Torn.JPG

Black, 

dark

 

walking around in emptiness

 

concealing the pain

 

that tears the soul

 

Misunderstood

 

Threatened

 

 taking it all in

 

lashing out

 

Black, dark,

TORN

6Doubt.JPG

Never sure

 

so indecisive, 

so insecure

 

The curtain of doubt 

disguises the truth

 

So I follow you

 

or you

 

or you

 

 

 

11MortalPain.JPG

Feel it

 

don’t run away

 

Stay

 

stay a bit longer

 

it won’t be long

 

nothing is,

 

nature understands

16MindPollution.JPG

Never ending chatter,

 

yakking incessantly in my mind

 

contaminating my soul

 

infecting it with ego

 

Immortal time, always running

 

ticking endlessly past me

 

Make it stop

 

Let me just Be

 

Let me surrender to the Now

 

and be one with the light

10AnIllusion.JPG

The illusion manipulates my actions and I blindly follow it’s lead

 

I cry and I laugh

 

I eat and I drink

 

I run and I walk

 

I rush and I slow down

 

and I blindly follow it’s lead

 

An illusion won’t let me just BE!

5Thesecret.JPG

It’s not that serious

 

but the mind tricks us,

 

it keeps it a secret

 

It’s not that serious

 

but the soul accepts it

 

keeps it hidden

 

so no one will see

7Worry copy.JPG

Tired of worrying

 

Constant anguish

 

anguish of uncertainty

 

misery of anticipation

 

all for what may not be

 

Creasing my skin

 

drying me from the inside

 

wasting my time

Peirano_Mariana_Ancestral Vision.JPG

I Recognize her

 

but memory doesn't

 

too many lives ago perhaps

 

I find resemblance

 

but memory can’t

 

too far ahead perhaps

Gray.jpg

In sorrow I roam the arid life

 

empty, stale, alone

 

searching for the hidden self

 

starving, craving the energy

gone Gray inside and out

 

and yet they shine around me

 

Gray, detached

 

no one sees 

Gray

Gray until when?

4Transcendence.JPG

I’m changing

 

Fast

Late, but fast

 

Can’t seem to stop

 

The old abandons me

 

fading away

 

The new essence will emerge

14Bleeding.JPG

Abandoned by her children 

 

 

Nature quietly mourns

 

Mistreated, hurt

 

 

Nature silently weeps

 

Wounded, drained

 

 

Nature slowly withers

 

Agonizing until her open wounds

cover the earth
