Promise

Our hearts were born with a promise
To beat with hope
Love
And truth
No matter what
To stay gentle
In disgrace
To share love
Through hate
And when the big storms pass ~

We are there
For those who lost their way
A light for all to find their own
Carried with them all along

Slowly remove the suffocating layers
That blurred the holes
Our souls peek through

Attempts to hide joy
With fear
Shattered with
The rise of those who embrace
The possibility of wonder

Soft heart’s
Begin to beat as one
Shining light back
To the sun

Lifting all
From pain to ease
From depleted to content
From lost
To found

There is a moment
When our world will change
You will feel it
As you choose to shine
To turn from
Thoughts that
Shake your heart
To those that flutter through you
Like butterflies through a garden
Watch as joy
Showers you in surprise.

I Am A Little Leaf

I am a little leaf
I grow and flow and fall
I see you
Noticing me

If I were but a leaf
Falling sweetly to the ground
Would I not want someone to notice me
To smile with delight
At my small but sacred flight
The gentle beauty of it all

To let their heart and soul be kissed by the little dance
Performed just for them

Ahh yes I truly would

As they delight in my adventure
Perfectly timed to be part of theirs
I feel a wave of their own
Wishes for joy
Rushing through me like
Contagious laughter

Spreading to all who will choose
To allow it
~~~Ensuring all those wishes come true~~~

I am a little leaf
I grow and flow and fall
I see you
Noticing me

And so the garden grows

As long before as you can think
As far until as will exist

And as I began to grow,  so too did he
Right along next to me
Our energies building and shining
Growing and resting
Side by side

I was not showing him the way
He was neither leading nor following
He was an equal force
An equal light
An equal

Where I was going
He would be too
As he continued
So did I

As long before as you can think
As far until as will exist

We rose from the ground
Aiming toward the sun
Through shadows settling
Air cooling
Unwavering hope ripe with good intentions

Our intent is to love.

Give love
Find love
Receive love
Mention love
See love
Feel love

Until this world we are soaring through
Can do nothing
Without feeling it.
Nothing, without knowing it exists.
Until one day they find themselves snipping off a tiny bit to keep for their very own

And so the garden grows.

Cosmic Colour

Decorating all who stood in gloom

splashing through the pouring rain

on a particularly gray day

i couldnt help but notice

how the trees still wearing their

fancy fall colours

did not shy away

from the bold statememt

of their bright burning colour

They continued to light up the universe

in full cosmic colour

decorating all who stood in gloom

 

 

 

 

The Polaroid

As you turn to face your freedom…

In this moment

Take a picture

What does it show?

Your heart is beating,

But I cannot see it.

I see you smiling, or perhaps you are crying,

But is it a reflection,

Of your deepest thoughts and feelings?

Is it what you wish to portray, to “appear” ok

It matters .

I don’t care about the picture of this moment

It is only disguising the truth of your soul

I see the true you.

I love all you hold within.

Set it free.

And let another picture be taken,

As you turn to face your freedom..

 

The Embers

Love lives, as the fires sleep..

Within each of us

are the embers.

They ignite with love.

to light the way,

for our soul to journey

confidently.

There is the ember of wonder,

the ember of hope,

the ember of trust,

the ember of forgiveness,

the ember of gratitude,

the ember of creativity,

the ember of harmony~

Be open to receiving love.

It flutters in on the wings of

a butterfly,

It pours from the laughter of

children,

It circles you with a strangers

smile,

It finds you in a dream,

It catches you in unbelievable days,

and helps you believe~

Love creates light

Love dissolves fear,

Love lives as the fires sleep,

and will wake you…

again and again.

 

 

 

Still Within

And now, in full light, I see myself.

I’m digging my soul out from years of discarded pieces of myself.

I’m sweeping aside piles of stuff
That belonged to someone else’s journey.

The wreckage of choices
Made from someone else’s right or wrong, pressure or fear.

I’m lifting off this heavy, guilt-ridden costume.

It no longer fits.

there is something hiding within..

And now in full light I see myself.

My soul is bare and pristine.

Pulsing with a light of trust, and magic.

To be once again in my loving embrace.

The Pink Jiffy

As the bridges appeared, the joy and the light of that love, embraced the world and all within it, until, we were one…

I took a bright pink jiffy marker,

And turned the thin line that separates us

Into a beautiful bridge.

I felt my soul awaken,

As it raced to cross,

Finally able to give all the love

meant to share.

Little by little,

As the bridges appeared,

The joy and the light of that love

Embraced the world

And all within it,

Until,

We were one…

The Treasure Hunt

Life is a treasure hunt…

There are treasures
on the path,
on the journey…

You know there are some you
have found,
some you have left behind…

You know there are those yet to
discover…

You need them.

You crave them.

You search,

you dream,

You have a space…

a hollow,

Where it will fit just right..

But you never truly know exactly what you’re looking for•••

Until you see it..

You quench your thirst,

feed your hunger,

But no satisfaction is like
that which comes from
discovering a treasure…

One that completes life’s puzzle..

One that lights
an ember within you..

Casting magic and light

amongst all

Love From Mom

I’m here. I need you to know.

I see you my child.

~Precious soul I miss too big to explain.

I’m here. I need you to know.

~I replay moments that we shared, and ones I’ve dreamed.

For you I’m just a scent and just a song away.

~For me you’re a whisper, a smile, a big step forward when I’m afraid and tired.

Yes.  I see you being so brave.  I’m there.  

For you I live in stories that you read and remember how they were told to you while I held you in my arms.

~There’s nothing like that safe warm dream of together.

I wish for it every second I’m still.  

I beg for it back when I’m worn out.  

When I don’t have anything left to hide all that stuff I keep underneath.  

Those days will come.

I’ll be there to help you hold that heavy feeling so it won’t weigh you down.

Those days will go.

You’ll find peace in a memory and laughter will soon follow.

You’ll find peace knowing our souls are forever meant to be.  

I’m right here…

Just on the other side of the thinnest wall where you can still feel my presence.

Still hear my laugh.

Still feel your heart thumping when you see my eyes light up for you.

A momma’s love who knows you through and through and treasures every bit.

You didn’t lose that.

It was, and it is.

This love exists in a realm surpassing life and death.

Long after we must part

It will wrap you up, like a warm towel after a hot bath.

It will sing you to sleep.

It will wake you when the sky is so beautifully blue that you simply must not miss it.

It will guide you with the sparkling sun.

It will remind you with the most delicious bloom under a peculiar tree.

It will gather your fears and send them soaring with the birds high above this wild world.

Don’t worry my dear.  I am right here.

I was on top of the world from the day I knew we would be together

and I am still ….

Right here.

On top of the world.

Watching over you,

every step of the way.

Keep on being brave my lil one.

It matters.

The tough parts are little bridges

that we must trust and

we must cross.

They don’t go on forever.

They just get us to the good stuff.

I hope you do the things you love today.  

Will you go for a drive?

Will you walk through the garden?  

I know in some way you will help others, it’s what feeds your soul…

Make yourself smile cuz that’s the time I love the most. 🙂

Love you always, forever, and still,

~mom
