Only to Love

20170501_204028

As I walk so freely on my path

I know in my heart

That I am guided by love

The faith I feel as each obstacle is unveiled

Surpasses the fear of the multiple unknowns

I look inside through different eyes

And there is a kaleidoscope of colors

That grow in their hue

And depth of meaning

What once was used to hurt

Now only shows in shadows

Weeds to be plucked

Origin to be noticed

I am growing my love

From the inside out

And the light that surrounds my being

Has an essence that I felt before

And I remember

When my soul

Was tethered

Only to love

Blessitude!

IS PURPOSE

2016-07-27 18.19.53

Let me move through this, oh Lord

Let me walk through the darkness

with light in my steps

knowing that truth dwells within

Let me grow through this, oh Lord

Let me know that the lesson

was worth the pain

and through the struggle

I did gain

A love that brings me closer to you,

a knowing deep inside

that the beauty that is…

inspired through my heart center

is purpose.

Blessitude!

Erupt in Flames of Passion

2016-11-28-08-16-21

The voice that speaks from the depths of my being

2016-11-28-07-56-03

The love from the connection to the eternal

2016-11-26 18.16.04.jpg

Resides in my soul and whispers sweet secrets

2016-11-26 18.17.01.jpg

And paints fire in the sky!

 

I have a burning desire deep inside, smoldering embers left alone to warm the dark places.

It exists.  It has always been there, waiting patiently to catch my heart and erupt in flames of passion.

The beauty in the sky mirrors my soul, suddenly aflame, noticed, honored, loved, alive!

Blessitude!

Let Me Introduce You…

I’m so excited to share two of my favorite people…both who’ve just published books!  My blogger friends use words that will touch you…I promise!

If you don’t already know them, please go visit their blogs, and if it feels right to you, invite their words into your home!

Dennis Ference, at MERGING TRAFFIC, captured my soul with the first words I ever read by him.  There is a soothing “knowing” that he shares which can only come from a place of deep understanding.  I picture turning on a faucet of love, and the “water” that comes out is his words.

Dennis’ book, “From the Water’s Edge ~ Daily Offerings for the Wayfaring Soul,” is a compilation of 365 poems, one for each day of the year, and the poems are accompanied by photos taken by Lily (read a favorite story about Lily) his beautiful granddaughter.

You can purchase Dennis’ book at the following places:

Kimberly Harding, at SOUL HEALING ART, is a very gifted woman who pairs her beautiful art with words that deliver a dose of medicine to the soul!  I am amazed at the bounty of her creative prowess.

A long time fan of Kim’s, I have witnessed a very clear shift in her energy of late.  She is standing in her power and it is displayed so beautifully in the way she marries her blessed words with her art.

You can purchase Kim’s book at:

Thank you, my friends, for allowing me to share these incredible people with you.  I hope you all are swimming in Blessitude! ❤

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 Sea, My Passion!

20151213_160137

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

20151016_074648

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.

20160123_121256

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

20160101_173327

Other times she unleashes the burning energy with incredible force!

20160125_080303

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 ❤ ❤

Blessitude
