Self Discovery

Radiant Bloom

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

Core Beauty

Inward she floats coiled
and sure she knows where she is going
it is worth the effort the anticipated darkness
worth the uncomfortable experience, she is gone
down into the depths of questions
enough times now to understand why, it is a necessity
to unfurl her beauty waiting
soon reaching beyond her core

curiously digging under the surface I am not afraid
to look not afraid of what I will find but I feel
the timid recoil of others wishing
I would stay as I was not
this time I am not, no
I will not (more…)

Enjoy

Enjoy the joy spilling from
your lips enjoy the joy tempting your dreams enjoy
the joy singing to your heart enjoy the joy
lighting your spark
enjoy the joy radiating beyond
your outstretched arms enjoy the joy seeping
from your roots into the ground enriching all (more…)

Hidden

I’ve dreamed of you I’ve searched
I’ve longed to come across your weathered parts
to feel at home under your roof among the trees
around you that have taken root to see outside
your window panes all the beauty life and growth surrounding
in truth in wisdom in love with you protecting
us I’ve known this way this home this place (more…)
