October Theme… Falling

The universal theme of a falling dream …

Do I wake in terror unwilling to face the outcome?

Do I persevere and see where I will land?

Do I breakthrough to another theme of flying?

Excerpt from ” Cutting the Clouds, a bayou mystic’s poems, musings and imaginings:”

The Head of a Pin

Standing on the head of a pin

Waiting for the wind to

Send me into the abyss.

I miss those days when

Caring meant sharing love,

Not spending it like coins

Slammed into a slot

On a wish and a prayer.

Not knowing when or if

The investment will see a return.

My concern

Is not for you

Or even about you

But without you

How will I remember

While standing on this pin,

How to trust again?

Only a fool forgets the wind.

A bigger fool still,

Forgets she has wings to fly.

Bessie Senette is nine and a half months pregnant waiting on the birth of Cutting the Clouds: a Bayou Mystic’s Poems, Musings, and Imaginings – an autobiographical collection of poems and essays about the life and culture of her bayou upbringing and the spirituality that informs her traditional healing gifts. 
A high-spirited, creative, solemn, and above all joyous woman, she celebrates her birthday for the entire month of August, otherwise known as the Besstival. Anyone born in August is welcomed as a Besstivite. The High Feast day of the Besstival (Bessie’s actual birthday) is known as the Besstiva. 

When her Muse is not in the mood to muse, she cooks. Bessie’s home is an oasis of hospitality, and yet her husband, Tom, calls it a fortress of solitude. Somehow it works. She works as a supplemental grandmother and primary Mimsie to Eden and Noah, five grand pups and one cat. 
As an ordained minister, she officiates an ecumenical liturgy for a small congregation of like-minded and just “slightly” wacky folk who are lovingly referred to as the Bessbyterians. 
Bessie is a polydactyl poet, born with six toes on her left foot. Some of her friends think she should have a reality TV show but she insists that it would have to be an UnReality show. All are certain the ratings would be astronomical.
