Daffodil

 An ancient wall comes crumbling down,
ivy snaps...cascades to the ground.
The protected garden behind the wall,
grew an idea of love too small.

It could not sustain our love within,
it was time to reflect...to start over again.
So I took a deep breath and let in the light,
that destroyed the wall and expanded my sight.

Within that new field I planted to grow,
a deeper understanding of our love to know.
And just today, not a moment too soon,
I spied our first flower, a Daffodil bloom.

Synchronicity: Daffodils are symbolic of spring - of birth and new beginnings.

The Dark Goddess

Once in awhile the Universe provides, an opportunity to view self through an observer's eyes. Today I was humbled and dismayed to find, that I cannot harness the Dark Goddess's ride.

While I like to pretend to have total control, She is part of my wild side, part of my soul. I prefer the inner Angel all calm and sweet, While the Dark Goddess I wish none to meet.

She fills me with guilt and unbearable shame, If only somehow her fire could be tamed. My Angel tells me that Dark Goddess shouldn't exist, Yet in the end, it's the Angel who's dismissed.

Why is it so hard to admit imperfection? To see all parts of self in my own reflection? To love even the unlovable parts of me, In that I am uncertain and yet I know it is key.

How can you accept her when I myself cannot? What makes me deny her a conscious dwelling spot? If she's a valid and natural part of me, then I must figure out how to set her free.

In Loving Memory - Grandma Corky

Grandma, you were a sun in my world a loving radiance shining on a little girl. You nurtured and nourished me in wonderful ways, you taught me of adventure, curiosity, and play.
When life became dark you illuminated my night, you loved me, you pushed me, and fought for what was right. You showed me what will and determination can do, and to myself you taught me to always be true.
There are so many memories flowing into my heart, it pains me to know that for now we must part. But the seeds that you planted deep inside of me, have helped me to blossom into a mighty oak tree.

Springtime Sigh

Lilting tones and rainbow hues Dance across a quiet room. Curtains sway, kissed by the wind, Carrying expressions of a gentle afternoon.
Its breath is ripe, fragrantly sweet, From wildflower blooms nearby. Earthen woods frame the view, While birds sail high in the sky.
The air, it hums, teeming with life, Of a wild and subtle kind. As the sun's rays beckon eyes to close, I exhale a contented s i g h.
