I have tombstones in my heart
Places where those I once held in reality
Now live in sacred memories
I visit them often, talk with them, hold them
Remind them of bygone days of joy and pain....
No one passes through life
Without the longings for days gone by
Memories painted on an open heart
Cherished beyond earthly limitations.
Weaved within a tapestry of thoughts and dreams.....
Today I transpose what is reality
Instead returning to a humble time
Flesh and bones no longer haunting me
Resting in the serenity... Read More
I am an unfinished story
Each chapter filled with
Characters playing their perfect part
Dancing inside this reality...
Love, joy, sorrow, pain, strength, grace
Each tattooed upon my soul
Becoming the ink I write with
The colors in many hues...
Many chapters are too long
The hope in me refusing
To let go even though I know
To hold on was a continuation of illusion...
Some chapters are enduring
A prayer to bring with them
The grace and beauty they
Hold in a sacred vessel of intuition....... Read More
I hear the silence in you
That place where you are hiding
Your suffering held tightly inside
But I know, I see, I hear, I feel
Because, you are now a part
Of my very own heart...SO
When you breathe I feel you
Holding you gently in my thoughts
Longing to replace
What once hurt you
With an abundance of compassion
Erasing any sorrow
That ever touched your heart
I ask for nothing in return
As in giving I am
Abundantly blessed ...
Longing for nothing more
Than seeing your smile........ Read More
Wrapped in tranquility within this sacred cocoon
Do not touch this silk I am hiding in, or I may perish
Transforming through the manifestation of grace
Leaving behind all unwelcome aversions
Watch as I slowly weave a tapestry
Each thread bestowed with acknowledged endeavor
Life's lessons transporting me through any fear
Secured by the love and benevolence given to me undeserved
Watch as I transmute in essence
Giving birth to life's purest gift
Carrying this love forward to no longer struggle
Holding only what blesses... Read More
A long winding road called life
In each and every turn there is a surprise
Bright paths to guide you aright or
Dark alleys that hinder your sight
Every step to be taken with care
But also believing that someone’s there
A companion that lights up your face
In the steep valley and in the narrow place
Keep in mind the passersby
And guide them through the turbulent times
Cross the bridges holding hands and
Support each other through the shaky tracts
Enjoy the moments until the journey ends
Without thinking... Read More
I stood at the sink,
pain lancing my chest,
tears blinding me as I tackled a mound of dirty dishes.
Exhaustion weighed heavy,
my arms like stone.
I was alone, disconnected
I could almost see the knife
piercing my heart.
There was a name on the handle;
I strained my inner eye,
expecting to see my husband's name carved in the wood
I tried to manipulate the letters but I could not force them to spell his name.
The etched letters
clearly... Read More
Yesterday was Today
Today was Tomorrow
Tomorrow, too will dawn
What it brings, I do not know
Do not know, and do not wish to know.....
SOMETIMES, TOMORROW IS TOO FAR AWAY
SOMETIMES, tomorrow feels too close
Lost in a memory of Today
Or was that Yesterday?
I no longer seem to know
No longer want to care
I rather bury it somewhere
Far in the distance between
Two points in time.....
Today I commit to let go
Of unknown tomorrows
Walking instead into
Blessings gifted to me NOW....... Read More
