FREEDOM – A Collaboration with Harlon

Resized_20160502_180504

Deserted

The lonely wind whips through my hair

              As my heart bleeds real tears

Abandoned

              The sky is beyond my reach

              And my hopes turn to fears

Shattered

              Broken mirror…tortured dreams

              Pieces on the ground

Resigned

                I am damaged  

                Missing pieces, parts not found

Exposed

                What I fight is all that’s true

                 Naked to the core of who I came to be

Asunder

                What is that noise I hear

                I think it’s coming from me

Trepidation

                I have dug deep

                And the answers weren’t there

Liberation 

                The moment of feeling overwhelmed

                Disappears as I throw caution to the air

Recognition

              All that caused fear evaporates

              As I realize the questions were all wrong

Comprehension

              The very thing I kept hidden

               Was in plain sight all along           

               

 

Blessitude!

Lorrie & Harlon ❤ ❤

Ah!  My dear friend Harlon, from A PATIENT VOICE, nudged me out of my semi-retirement to work on this collaboration with him.  We wrote this poem over the last couple months (mainly due to my time constraints.)  It was a wonderful experience for me, as we seemed to just flow as if we were one…which I would say we are!

I have missed being here on my blog and visiting you all to see what you have been up to.  My life has changed in many ways, certainly in ways that don’t leave me a whole lot of time.  I hope to be a bit more present in the near future.  I really miss you, my friends and I think of you often.  I wish you many wonderful things, and most of all BLESSITUDE!! ❤ ❤

My healing journey on the continuum of "It's all wrong" to "It's all right!" I love art and the creative process, reading, writing, and playing tennis.

  1. Wonderful to see you here, dear Lorrie!! And what an enjoyable collaboration this is. Deep questions that we wrestle with can indeed hide their answers in plain sight ❤

  2. This is a wonderful collaboration between you and Harlon dear Lorrie.. It digs deep into the core of those emotions we travel through upon our earth journey as we go through life’s often turbulent learning curves and paths..

    But we are also often guided to those who totally understand us, and into a fresh set of circumstances, that at first we are fearful of following simply because we are unsure of ourselves and the fear we often associate with the unknown..

    I am sure given time to adjust to what ever is flowing through your life right now dearest Lorrie.. Your time will also once again open up to allow the flow between WordPress friends again when it is meant to happen..

    In the mean time dearest Lorrie.. I send you Love and warm wishes to your journey.. May your life have turned an important corner as new doors present themselves to you..
    For you are Blessed..

    Love Sue ❤ ❤ ❤

    1. You are so beautiful and I thank you for the gift you have just given me! Dear dear Sue…your words have such love woven through them…like the fabric of life..and I am grateful for your knowing soul. I have gone through a great loss in the past week…a very strong and long friendship that I thought was for a lifetime…my venue for my creative expression in art glass…and a business that I spent all my waking hours creating for the last three months. It is very…very sad. But I accept all that happened and I can be at peace knowing that this is where I am supposed to be. Sometimes we are blinded by what we think we want, only to be shown the true way of our soul!
      Thank you my friend…I send you so much love ♡♡♡

      1. I some how knew that it centred around your art-class and the glass making you were speaking of.. I should trust my senses more to speak what I see.. Since putting my mediumistic skills to one side I am rusty lol..
        I am saddened to learn it also involved a loss in friendship also.. You know Lorrie in acceptance we over come much.. And you know also, that nothing is ever ‘really’ lost… For it is all as it should be.. Breathe deeper and freer dear Lorrie .. For in doing so you have moved one step closer to ALL that you ARE and always Have been..
        Love and blessings xxx and always LOVE .. ❤

    Blessings,
