Wishing You Peace

“Peace on earth will come to stay, When we live Christmas every day.” ~Helen Steiner Rice   I have decided to honor my inner voice and take some time off from writing and blogging. I will be back around the New Year.   During the season of Christmas and the Solstice I go deep within […]

Poetry Sunday: Dear Sky

Poetry Sunday:  Dear Sky

  Dear Sky     Dear Sky:   I bask under your brilliance, I sigh as you lighten through the hours.     I relax as you color my end of day, And I contemplate beneath your moon and stars.     Your colors emerge and delight; They renew my soul and sing to me. […]

Poetry Sunday: Dear Home

Poetry Sunday:  Dear Home

  Dear Home     Dear Home:   My hearth-my center-my solace! I come to you for peace, quiet and solitude. I come to you for centering. A feeling of belonging where I find shelter. And while I surround myself with colors and precious things, Where love is, that is all I need to be completely […]

Poetry Sunday: Savoring

Poetry Sunday:  Savoring

    Savoring   For me, food was always an after thought.  Something I had to have to fuel my growing, in-constant-motion- child’s body.  Grabbing a bowl of cereal here and there; a quick sandwich.   And into adulthood, this still was the case.  I had my favorites, but still food was merely fuel to be gobbled, rushed, […]

Poetry Sunday: Breath of Life

Poetry Sunday:  Breath of Life

  Breath of Life   The wind blows through me; the breath of life. It restores me. The soft rustling, white noise calms me- Enveloped in a warm, cozy blanket.     Cool breeze on my skin like wading in a creek. Waking my senses, I rise to the scents and smells- New grass, fragrant […]

Poetry Sunday: Who Are You?

Poetry Sunday:  Who Are You?

    Who Are You?     The life of the soul is where I reside now; I am energized, I am in my truth, I am joyful, grateful, trusting.     On this journey with doubt and certainty- I am building a self, It is my life story, There is a vision of possibilities […]

Poetry Sunday: Nature Speak

Poetry Sunday:  Nature Speak

Nature Speak   Dewdrops of rain kissing leaf and flower, Cool crisp breeze cleanses my soul. The hum of bee and cicada fills the air, Sun warms my skin, lulling me into a trance. The leaves bend with the wind, Keeping time with my heart. The flow of life all around me, As I stand […]

Poetry Sunday-Weaving A Life

Poetry Sunday-Weaving A Life

Weaving A Life     When I first looked at the spider, all I could see was a creepy vixen waiting to trap and enslave her prey.  But now, I notice the webs, the homes lovingly created to provide food, shelter and a home to nurture her young. A mighty creature, the garden spider goes about making […]

Poetry Sunday:  Muddy Waters

  Muddy Waters     Muddy waters take me in Take me down to nourish my skin Skin made tough Skin made thin Through life’s adventures Through life’s sins.     So soak it up and banish all ills Fill me deep, realign my will A heart made true A soul made joyful A powerful […]

Poetry Sunday-Taking Back A Life

Poetry Sunday-Taking Back A Life

    Taking Back A Life     There is a change coming Riding high on this mighty wind. A soulful stirring A door opens I stand upon a threshold Pausing now- Eager to cross yet fear holds me tight in place.     The scent upon the breeze stirs my every cell Filling me […]

Poetry Sunday: A Most Extra-Ordinary...

Poetry Sunday:  A Most Extra-Ordinary Life

    A Most Extra-Ordinary Life     Though your smile fades from this place it shines deep inside of me and all who have known you, loved you.     Your life’s breath, extinguished here on Earth, now a forever light that burns brighter through me, around me and into the ethos.     […]

Poetry Sunday: This is for us…...

Poetry Sunday:  This is for us…..

    This is for us……     I scratch the earth to plant a seed, and watch it grow and bloom and green.     And I scribble these words across a page, to capture my heart as I wrinkle with age.     You splash fine colors on a canvas blue, with red […]

Midweek Poem-Innovate

Midweek Poem-Innovate

    Innovate     Words fall, swirling around my brain today As the world softens about me- Bringing up new ideas to spark This New Year–this new path.     Stretching, Opening a bit more. Integrating all of me into one wholeness A word drifts around my periphery.     Speaking its name. A newness, a change […]

Creative Quest

Creative Quest

“You have to be burning with an idea, or a problem, or a wrong that you want to right. If you’re not passionate enough from the start, you’ll never stick it out.” ~Steve Jobs       Recently, I took part in a week-long Photo Quest (#celebrateARTlife ), put together by Whitney Freya.  I find when […]

Poetry Sunday-Finding My Core

Poetry Sunday-Finding My Core

    Finding My Core     I stand here at my center while all around me seems to be falling apart. Senseless violence. Memories of loved ones, now gone, bubble up to open the wounds of my heart.     And it is in these times I seek my core, a need to express […]

Poetry Sunday-Dear Imagination

Poetry Sunday-Dear Imagination

    Dear Imagination:     You come to me on crayon-colored rainbows scrawled on envelopes and walls. You ride on the wind with swings flying high, and bike spokes pinned with cards, clapping like hoof beats. You roll down hills laughing so hard you can hardly breath. And you plunk down in a meadow plucking yellow and […]

Wildlife Lessons-The Magic of Toads

Wildlife Lessons-The Magic of Toads

“I believed then – in a deep, easy way that is impossible for me as an adult – that there was more to this world than meets the eye. Trees had spirits; the wind spoke. If you followed a toad or a raven deep into the heart of the forest, they were sure to lead […]

Poetry Sunday-Indigo Sky

Poetry Sunday-Indigo Sky

      Indigo Sky     Stars twinkle in the indigo sky Like notes to a score heard only by me, To catch the rhythm of the nite And ride it to the heavens.     Holding tight to angel’s wings, Watching the meadow with owl’s eyes, Knowing there is life here in these […]
