we surrendered our weapons, poured our hearts into rivers, sacrificed our words for visions. so it could flow forever across lands. unity was built by wooden pallets, left by the side of abandoned buildings. seen, but ignored, unwanted. no longer does this exist. with unity, we created bridges walked across them with our souls trust [...]
The open road felt very distant, A mist in the free air, transparent Enclosed without borders or outlines.
I wandered through the car, In my mind, as I drove To keep up the intensity. The littlest movements Made huge swerves Be careful, please. Rain poured, cried Tears on the windshield Wipers squeaked back & forth.
musical notes flutter across see-through paper. their movements offbeat like magic shadow puppetry dance in wonder about morning clouds. drift and sway, always. never knowing if they're heard. never knowing if they're seen. ------- I found a video that conveys this sentiment in this poem. I wrote the poem first and then found the [...]
Feet upstairs running, Like a loud clap of thunder, Roaring messages downwards As I gather all my notes. Habitats caved inward, Cabin fever is alive. Stringing lights for comfort. Lemon bars for good times. Comfy leg stools, Entangled between space Reserved for sleeping cats Purring with their scratchy cheeks. what I imagine living in the [...]
I'm not sure what compelled me to buy their CD. I liked their music, but wasn't a "fan" necessarily. When I got home, I placed the circular magic disc and let it play. And this was one of their songs that really caught me. I remember thinking that the lead singer's voice was really authentic. [...]
Alone. Surrendering underneath the rising sun. Hot. The heat radiates onto the roofs of snowy abyss, melting down creating icicles on the edges of shingles. I stand before the open vast blanket of beautiful, untouched snow. After multiple repetitions of shoveling the millions of snowflakes from under, over and then walking piles across, I took [...]
Slinking into the weekend after a week of bitter cold, I wanted to re-energize my mind and warm up my body by staying in a bit. By accidentally coming across two documentaries on nature, I was surprised to have been enthralled by them. Although knowing me, I guess it's not that surprising. It was fascinating [...]
You spoke so softly, With a tad tense in your voice. A lingering echo of consonants A symphony of resentment. Don't hold your heart back, Let the brightness see day. Pettiness is worthless Since time is delayed. There are so many things in life that can hold us back. We can find ourselves trapped within [...]
Roots grounded tightly By the first seeds of life. Nurtured by warmth and water, Growth seeped into the stem. Each day, stronger by the second. Taller by the minute, until it stops. Overlooking a city of lights, Humans from all over. Standing resilient, the tree. Feels so good to post this as my first post [...]
To walk on both lines, Weighing the same, Of two opposing forces. To engage with the in-between. Lightly stepping into the heavy, Open-minded with awareness. Knowing that you don't know. With the motive to be present, To have fulfillment beyond noise. Beyond familiarity, self-doubt, bias or fact. No one thing is complete of a [...]
Intangible things we sought, Were things we never bought. But brought up from a home, At birth, rose in bloom. Peeking through edges, Of journal entries & photo albums. Fall leaves, arctic winters Spring flowers, sweaty summers. Cat naps and dog howls. In-between the whole. Clouds drifting slowly, The world ever-changing.
I've changed a bit this year. I am so happy that the posts I created show so much of the nature and peace I've felt throughout 2017. There was much growth and meaning to be had and as each year passes, I want that to continue. I am certain 2018 will be an interesting year. [...]
When you pour your soul into something. You let yourself actually feel what you're feeling. Allowing any possibility to come; the good and the bad, the right and wrong. Having trust is knowing something that you don't know. It's having your inner intuition be the net that catches you if you fall. Trust is taking [...]
Redwoods was comfortable, but at times it took my breath away because of the exhilarating beauty. I feel so connected to something so close to my source, my soul. Redwoods gave me peace and calm. One hike here is not like another. It's all a different experience. The Redwoods changed me. I felt so much [...]
