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!! ❤ ❤

 

My Sea, My Passion!

I look out to sea and the smells of the fine mist stimulate that place in my heart where truth is seen.

This sea I love, full of raw emotion, stokes the fires of the sleeping embers in my soul.

I need this place.  It reminds me of my passion.  I feel it in my DNA.  I feel it deep inside every cell that makes up my body.

Her mood changes, just like mine.  One moment smooth, calm, a glass-like structure.

Other times she unleashes the burning energy with incredible force!

Her passion on display, she knows where she is going…and she is connected to all of life!

I wish you all the blessings of hearing your passion ❤ ❤

The Magnificence of Creation

20151009_082200

My pity party is over

And I am washed in the love of

The Magnificence of Creation

This, my new word for God

Feels right to my soul

And I honor the love

That is felt here

I believe no matter how bad times may feel,

There is a set amount of time that you can sit down

And feel sorry for yourself

But then you need to pick yourself up

And take the first step

In a forward direction

You have to believe with all your heart

That your struggle is there

For you to learn something

And then you have to believe

In Divine Timing

That what is on its way

Is so much better than

What you had planned

The Magnificence of Creation

Is all-knowing

And it works for you

And through you

Rise up

To your own Magnificence

And believe that the things you desire

Are on the way

Don’t hold tight to the belief

That they must appear exactly as you envisioned

Because you will be disappointed

And that will change your energy

No!

Be willing to release your expectations

But keep your belief

That the right people, things, and ideas

Will manifest in exactly

The perfect timing

Divine Timing!

So get busy looking for them!

I know they are there ❤
