Heart’s Desire Fulfilled

In Response To:

Ragtag Daily Prompt – Blanket

Word Of The Day Challenge – Lukewarm

Eugi’s Weekly Prompt – Dreamcatcher – March 4, 2021

Hope deferred 

is like a 

lukewarm blanket

in the heart

dreams and desires fade

I call to the Dreamcatcher…

Dreamcatcher catch for me

tears of sadness I cry and

return to me laughter

Dreamcatcher catch for me

the misery and despair and

return to me joy

Dreamcatcher catch for me 

this life mundane and 

return to me extraordinary

Dreamcatcher catch for me

loneliness in this heart and

return to me a soulmate

Dreamcatcher catch for me

fire that burns within the Sun and

return to me a passionate hope

setting free the lukewarm blanket

never to be returned.

Proverbs 13:12 (AMP)

Hope deferred makes the heart sick,

But when desire is fulfilled, it is a tree of life.

Repeating shapes formed

doing the same thing

over and over again

the soul slowly loses itself

in the dense fog of blindness

until…a succumb to surrender…

a crown jewel for the soul

at last insanity is halted

fog’s density is dissipated

perception is restored

by choice new shapes are fashioned

constantly growing, changing

broadening in understanding

freed from a monotonous prison

to a province of diversity unlimited

flourishing soul’s sane mind of peace,

joy and infinite creativity.

It all begins with one soul

beatdown, broken, hopeless

hated, unwanted, abandoned

unloved, silently dying within

down in the valley’s darkness

drowning in its own tears

unspoken words of the heart

that only Love can hear and

give answer to their call…

Movement of the soul begins

a rising to the mountain top

these souls are the unnoticed

for they do not lay claim for themselves

they are the ones whose wings cannot be seen

lighthouses whose beam of Light shines 

bright through the darkest storm

whose peace is undisturbable, their

forgiveness, compassion, and love are

poured out unconditionally upon others

even for the ones that destroyed them…

They walk silently upon this earth

in humble gratitude for the Love that

breathed Life into their death…they are God’s

Champions Of Grace.

Eugi’s Photo Prompt:

As she reflects on her life’s journey

she stands in awe of who she has become

from what she once was – emptiness, death…

*

In her reflections into her soul

she sees a Dawning of Light

where once there was only darkness

a precious, gentle and quiet spirit

where there once was angry, violent rage…

*

She is returning to her True self of

whom she was always meant to be

always desired and strived to be

before her innocence was taken and

the oppression she suffered devoured her

leaving her soul dying within her…

*

Now in her Dawning of Light

she has risen from the ashes

to devour the oppression that

once devoured her becoming

the empowerment to leave behind 

the darkness of an empty death

to a Woman graced in the wholeness of Love
