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

Every Step Taken

In Response To:

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #115 – Every Wednesday I post a photo.  You respond with something CREATIVE.

The journey looks straightforward

as far as my eyes can see

then I begin one step at a time

in my stride I reach to where

my eyes could see before I started

and behold the path is no longer straight

it is broken, rugged, leading to 

places I did not intend to go

with obstacles, twists, turns and confusion

losing my way to becoming 

beaten down, weary, and ever so lost…

Then Love invited me to take His Hand

to lead me in a different way to walk this journey

a way called life still filled with the

same obstacles, twists, turns and confusion

only this time empowered with 

the Strength of Grace…

Sometimes painful, sometimes seeming hopeless

yet, for every sorrow, struggle and tear wept

there is a promised healing birthing the

scars of Ancient Wisdom gained that

brings with it a bold, confident courage to carry on

with revitalized hope and appreciation

for every step taken

Embedded image

Tis August’s arrival

quiet moments

soul stills and

listens…

as Summer begins

to say her good-byes

stepping stones of

Autumn’s whispers

can be heard as

its footprints reveal

the coming brilliance

igniting soul’s hearth

Undaunted

The Devils Pulpit in Finninch Glen, Scotland

A flowing river

making its way

through

a narrow passage

mindful to not be

thrown off course by the

protruding temptations of

beauty

that can lead it astray

instead to continue on in

the graceful flow of its

eternal journey

leaving a wake of

divine elegance

A Higher Realm

In Response To:

Sadje’s What Do You See #6 – Does this picture inspire you to write something?

The Light dawned upon

a darkened road

choosing a special

place to begin

an unrealized journey

for a newly borne soul

saying: “Follow Me

I will lead you

and guide you

into an unspeakable

Higher greatness!”

She followed and

the promise still

holds true.

The Whispers Of The Soul

In Response To:

BrewNSpew Cafe Weekly Word Challenge – Folklore – You may use the word(s), phrase and/or image to interpret the prompt.

Shot from: @larsvandegoor  Fall #mountain #mountains #sky...

Hidden behind the mist

are the voices left behind

telling stories of folklore

with hidden treasures to find

 

Along the sea’s shore

in the forest so deep

let your soul be your guide

that your journey be complete

 

Be willing to search far and wide

leave nothing left to chance

always keep eyes of heart open

and never settle for a glance

 

And let the mind’s eye broaden

to the tales once foretold

seeds planted so deep within

are the whispers of the soul

 

Let not this travel seem a burden

for you have not far to go

you only need be still and listen

to the whispers of the soul
