THE COPPER CORE OF STARS ~ Collaboration with F.G.M.

THE COPPER CORE OF STARS

 

PicsArt_07-19-09.28.00

Riding atop a moonlit wave

reality appeared in a flash

that lit up the night sky

 

sudden illumination

moment of creation

in the pure light of love

 

it touched a place deep within

where I sensed trace elements

assemble and conceive

 

and I saw the face of my soul

in the birth of perfection

reflecting in a mirror of fire,

 

the copper core of stars.

 

Blessitude!

My soul is forever connected with this dear man, Fre’de’ric, from Words In The Light.  From the first moment we met we knew that our souls had made a contract to find each other…no matter how far away our physical bodies could stray.  We come together in spirit and our words are our gifts.  I hope you enjoy!!

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!

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!! ❤ ❤

 

L’ETOILE DU BERGER (Shepherd’s Star)

Collaboration with my dear SoulMate, Fre’de’ric

L’ETOILE DU BERGER (Shepherd’s Star)
Looking for
my Sheperd’s Star
I noticed
there was one star
that appeared to shine brighter
than any other in the sky
that night
.
I walked
and each step brought me closer
to the light
that my soul was born of
.
miracle
out of time and space
pure sparkle
nothing
will ever dull
.
forever
this brilliance
will be accessible
sensible
sublime to the touch
.
chime of Infinitude
transcendent and worldly
at the same time
as close
as you want it
to be
 .
My journey cocooned
filled with a knowing
connection,
protection,
.
Celestial Grace
.
Blessitude

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 

 
 
Blessitude

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. ❤
 

Homage to the Prophet ~ Collaboration with Fre’de’ric G. Martin

“When love beckons to you, follow him,

Though his ways are hard and steep”  (Khalil Gibran, “The Prophet”)

 

HOMAGE TO THE PROPHET

 

He stood on the mountain, exalted

And he wished for an audience to rhapsodize

About all he had seen

All he had learned

 ~

Grasping harmony in cacophony

Fighting for peace as wars dehumanize

And pushing for a truce

Between silence and tumult

 ~

He wore the tattered vestiges of pain

So delicately on his psyche

As his cloak of love and brilliance

Billowed from his soul

 ~

And even winter rains fell under his spell

For he was a maker of rainbows

Who had to teach the bright colors of wisdom

Passion, Mindfulness and Freedom

 ~

And they gathered

And they listened

This giant amongst them

Answered every question

 ~

And the people rose as one…

As a pregnant woman smiled to him, he said:

The Soul and her baby look alike

Children of Love only have to get ready

 ~

To be born

The Fall (Autumn Collaboration)

fall

The time of beauty

before the big sleep

The colors astound

a feast for the eyes

Each one dresses for 

the big fall

A choreographed dance

a chosen partner

Dance with me love

each step we take

Together in a dream

a dream in the big sleep

May we meet again

in the prime of your youth

Reborn in Spring

experience a summer love

And leave before the clock

strikes winter

Blessitude

I wrote this poem for Neha’s Autumn Collaboration over at FORGOTTENMEADOWS. If you are not familiar with Neha’s site, I highly recommend it. 🙂  She so graciously supports her fellow bloggers and showcases them on her collaborations.  And by all means, if the photo prompts a response in you…go post it at FORGOTTENMEADOWS!!  ❤  Lorrie

No Border

Seashores in the sun, gardens behind a wall,
Imagination will take its run-up everywhere,
Dreams under the moon and blue prayers enthral
Nothing is impossible for there is no border
 
I walk along my shore, you seem so far away,
With miles of surging water in between,
It’s so hard to comprehend, that your night is my day,
The difference in my heart can not be seen
 
Separated, unseparated, tides and backwash,
The law of attraction rules planets and souls,
Horizons outside make walkways inside,
Trees, wind and the sea will pass on our messages!
 
Whispers in the wind, gently nudge my soul
My heart is open wide, by your candor and your kindness
Your essence is a pillow, for the secrets I have told
a friendship with no space ~ truly timeless
 
Like a cheering sun beyond the ocean,
Your heart knows the secrets of perseverance
And share their priceless light with sincere words,
Regardless of distances and pains, o my soul sister!

Eternally connected, we shall travel through our days
Never will we walk this earth alone,
Quantum Entanglement:  It’s been written in the stars,
Trust what’s not seen, can certainly be known!
Blessitude!
Co-written with Fre’de’ric from Poems & Poemes
I am so grateful to present this, our second co-writing effort, to you.  I honor the beautiful spirit of this man and I know our soul’s are connected and it transcends time and space!!
Writing with Fre’de’ric is a delectable treat!!  Thank you Dearest!!
