Undisturbed

Written In Response To:

V.J’s Weekly Challenge #64: Resilience – There is a catch to this week’s challenge: I don’t want you to use the word itself, but to illustrate what resilience means to you.

orange leaves....

tree firmly rooted

its top blown in wind’s forces

grace encircles it

mind escapes chaos vortex

soul’s peace remains undisturbed

Seed’s Bounty

Written In Response To:

V.J.’s Weekly Challenge #63:  Ripening – This week, let’s take our cues from nature. Consider what is ripening in you, or the world around you. Maybe this requires a glance backwards to another time, or a peek into the life of another. Or maybe this prompt entices you to get out the camera and snap a few photos.  Looking forward to wherever the muse leads you!

The Little Sparrow’s Melody

Written In Response To:

V.J. Weekly Challenge #62: Child/Childhood –  Ponder what it means to be a child.

A Chipping Sparrow in Sunset Light

A child of darkness

a child of light

a child of weakness

a child of might

 

A child of weeping

a child of laughter

a child of dreaming

a child of slaughter

 

A child of love and hate

both became this child’s fate

the warring within raged

a tender sparrow’s imprisoned cage

 

One day an Angel came

opened the cage to set her free

this sparrow’s life was never the same

she was free to fly, free to breathe

 

War turned to peace clarity beckoned

finally she was able to sing her song

through Wisdom she now reckoned

it was to Love she knew she belong

 

Blessed is this precious sparrow

who has known darkness’s tragedy

for the dawn of every new tomorrow

hope has become her soul’s melody.

Truly Awakened

Written In Response To:

V.J.’s Weekly Challenge #58:  Just When I Thought… – Life seldom unfolds in straight lines. It’s not necessary to repeat the prompt phrase, but this week let’s think about the times when life has turned an abrupt corner, or caught us off guard.  

Light Motiffs II Thursday Inspiration 14 -This week’s theme is fragile and the picture is below.

Thursday Inspiration

Just when I thought this heart

could not become any more fragile

the Hand that holds it breaks

this heart to shatter into depths

of a Love that I never knew

could be so rooted to contain…

Mitchell Falls - in the Kimberly region (northeast of Perth, kind of nowhere)

Loving and forgiving beyond

heights, lengths, and widths

I never desired to go beyond…

just when I thought is when

I became truly awakened.

Clarity…sometimes the soul aches

to receive it thus banishing the confusion

yet, at times nothing is heard 

in that moment one awakens

to realize a deeper maturity of Spirit

the Presence of Grace is often silent…

clarifying all confusion.
