Hope Within Our Poetry

100_1716

Scars won’t keep our hope in the darkness,

instead our words will live

within our poetry,

encouraging us,

strengthening us

each and every day.

As Our Eyes are Filled with Hope

20170628_172235

Even in our deepest valleys, our canyons marked

with the bluest of grey

comes a light, a dawning really,

that our lives are more than battles,

and that the beauty

of our rivers will carry us,

into oceans of singing

as our eyes

are filled

with hope.

Closer to Our Center

100_0761

In the home fires we draw closer to our center, having been so worn,

and torn from our times with a quiet spirit, it often

feels right to regroup and be together

to find again who we really are,

our inner most being

and dwelling

with the ones

we love.

In the quiet.

In the Silence

100_0947

In the silence of pulling back, there are memories of contemplation,

straw hats, pages turning as we walk, the freedom of letting go.

Our stories yet to be written, begin to speak to us,

and our hearts are full again.

Shhh, walk softly.

A Word for Wednesday

20160514_124327

The word for today is “stillness”. Even in our busy lives we can take time to breathe in the stillness, listening to our hearts and lungs. When we take those few precious moments to contemplate, and refresh our spirits, we will be filled to overflowing. And the power of peace will flow through our lives.

Peace.
