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....

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.....

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,

sobbing silently,

tears blinding me as I tackled a mound of dirty dishes.

Exhaustion weighed heavy,

my arms like stone.

11:00pm.

I was alone, disconnected

Isolated.

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

But No!

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....
