This morning as the rain begins
its relentless seasonal soaking of the ground
the warm bright light
is left to shine behind the thick lid of clouds
I notice myself shifting from looking
out the window
to looking inside myself
a shift as gentle as waking up (more…)

Speechless the view filling me
from the tips of my hair to the tips of my toes solid
with so much presence clearly

surrounding this place hushed stillness, so loud
every unnatural sound expressed like a put down to the wonder (more…)

A balance comes seeping in when noticing
the light and darkness together intertwined
and both readily defined
where lines of love cross
despair and clouds of hope accumulate (more…)

Sometimes she wonders
what is behind her what is waiting there
for her to see
what does the view look like after she passes through
and she now looks
with knowing eyes at the past parts feeling less
overwhelming brighter more filtered more (more…)

Fresh morning dew crisp
morning air warm jacket my hood up
day beginning smiles
my breath is easier
in the morning it softens my voice

Quietly it begins the thoughts
of unworthiness laid like a blanket where you want to climb in
further darkening the feeling
until maybe just maybe you won’t get up
but why? (more…)

And she waits in her radiance
softness and style she opens to the light, she holds still
until she can’t do anything else but let go lying deep
in the forest only becoming her most true wild self without any audience
except her own soul, she is enough
she is and she does, springing to life
as the sunlight grows stronger
through the springtime

worth the uncomfortable experience, she is gone

enough times now to understand why, it is a necessity
to unfurl her beauty waiting
soon reaching beyond her core
