EXQUISITE ~ Word Challenge from Brad

20150702_150404

The time you spend in my heart

Sends shivers down my spine

Your exquisite beauty

Sends love through my pores

And I am grateful for this

The connection of love

And I wish to become a

A worker of light

A worker of beauty

To continue to send this energy out to the world

My mind becomes clear

My heart beats stronger

I walk through life on sturdy legs

Connected to the beauty of love

The most exquisite love

The most exquisite feeling

I am honored to pay this forward

I shall not disappoint

My very dear friend, Brad, from writing to freedom invited me to play along in this word challenge.  Somehow, it took me over a week to see his post!!  His word gave me inspiration and I set my timer for 5 minutes.  My word was ‘exquisite’ and the above is what came out, unedited, uncut.  Thanks Brad!  Nothing moves me more than words flying from my pen :)

I am supposed to invite (it doesn’t say how many) others to join in the fun.  This is the part of challenges and awards that I find I don’t like very much.  So I am going to be a rule breaker…I send this word challenge out to every single person who reads this post…Yes…YOU!  If it speaks to your heart…TAG, YOU’RE IT!!! <3

 

Here are the rules:

1) Open an MS word document (or any other editor).
2) Set a timer for 5-10 minutes.
3) Your word is at the bottom of this post.  DO NOT SCROLL DOWN TO SEE IT UNTIL YOU ARE READY WITH A TIMER.
4) Fill the word document with as many words as you want, once you start writing, don’t stop.
5) DO NOT go back and correcting spellings and grammar with spell check (this is only meant for you to reflect on your control over sensible thought flow).
6) You may or may not pay attention to punctuation and capitals.
7) At the end of your post write down the number of words.
8) Do not forget to copy and paste the entire passage to your blog post with a new word for your invitees.

 

YOUR WORD IS:

RELEASE

Firefly in flight

Catches moonbeams on its tail

Sky lights up in kind

This post is in honor of the first firefly of the summer!  Last year my backyard lit up like fireworks, there were so many.  Last night I wasn’t sure I saw him, the lone ‘lightening bug’ flying around, indiscriminately shining his light.  So I sat and kept my eyes open as long as I could, and BINGO…I saw him!

I thought about why I love these insects so.  And I realized the answer:  These wonderful bugs carry their light with them and proudly display it no matter what.  We could all take a lesson from these flying torches of light!!

P.S.  I send a prayer for those braving the drought and wildfires out west <3

The Same Tear

RENAULT-Clouds-Woman

She walks her hallowed halls

Looks inside the empty room

A tear falls from her eye

Her work is very important

Very satisfying

She connects souls who need each other

from a bird’s-eye view

She cares about them all

She understand their struggles

She is able to offer them comfort

And it gives her great joy

She tried to live a life with no regrets

And she succeeded

With the exception of one

To take her job

She had to leave the earthly realm

And her baby boy

The essence of her heart

Faced with the decision

Which wasn’t really hers

She had to fulfill her purpose

She had to choose the job for which she had been groomed

The world needed her gentle love

*

Her first day on the job…her very first connection

She took care of her baby boy

She put every ounce of energy

And skill into this one

To make sure her baby would know love

To make sure he was protected

And to nurture the sweetest soul of her seed

It was the first time that tear fell

*

She keeps the empty room

Not for sadness

Not for regret

But just for a reminder of what she had to leave

To be able to create such happiness in the world

She reminds herself

That she only left him in bodily form

For she could never leave from her soul

She checks in on his life

She sends a barrier of love to surround him

She stands and wipes the tear from her eye

Walks out of the empty room

And gently closes the door behind her…

Two Hands ~ Limitless Minds

A collaboration with Harlon Davey at http://apatientvoice.com

20150619_105854Harlon

If I asked you to believe

Would you take my hand

And hold on tight

And let your mind be free?

 

If I asked you if you were certain

That you would stay with me

While we traveled through our minds and spirits

Would you still feel free?

 

If I asked you to walk to the place that light touches

Where Angel wings flutter

And I held your heart in the essence of Love

Would you be willing to meet your soul?

 

If I said to you

that I’ve been lost so long

Would you still hold on to my hand so I can feel safe

and together we will be found?

 

I will stay with you, and I will hold on to you

While we both let go

Searching forces truth

to slip through the cracks of our minds

 

And we will cross this threshold together

We had so much fun with this collaboration :)  If you have never visited Harlon at his site A Patient Voice, I urge you to do so.  He makes me laugh, he makes me cry, he makes me think!  Intimately familiar with the healthcare system, he is a huge advocate and “Voice” for patients everywhere.  I am grateful for our connection and I think you will be also. <3
 

I Am Able

3368

Swimming against the tide

Turning, taking breath

Pushing hard against the strong current

No chance to swim parallel

A steady stroke

Water flows over my body

I try to think it is cleansing

Washing away the thoughts, events, patterns

The negative vibrations

That have been in control

Seem to fight the change

Embedded

They thought they found a home

And do not leave willingly

One arm over the other

Feet kick in a synchronous dance

Water coming hard at me

I push harder knowing that

The opposing forces create a friction

That erases what was there

Cleanses my body

My soul

My mind

And leaves me refreshed

Rebooted

My energy field set at neutral

I am able to create the things I want

I am able to vibrate at the level that feels right

Feels good

I am able to see straight into my soul

Not with eyes

But with my heart

And while my used vibration

Tries to hold on to the one voice in my head

The last wave of crystal clear

Ice cold water

Washes it away

I am able to see

Clearly

Blessitude
