The Indoor Garden

Although the soul is

in a holding pattern

awaiting the correct door

to be opened to a new season

and it feels as though

there will never be a change

or that there is no real purpose…

In this, the Sun can still shine

upon the soul’s soil and 

Living Water can quench the

thirst of the dormant seeds

awakening them to blossom

their beauty with a sweet fragrance

enticing others to come and enjoy

the pleasures of heaven’s garden

Bare Pages, Bare Heart – Prose Poem

Weekend Writing Prompt #36 – Begin

Word Prompt – Begin

Photo Prompt:

As I stare at the bare pages in front of me
I take a deep breath and be still in the moment
with pen in hand I speak the truth from within
the soul must have its voice or suffocate in silence
bringing death to the spirit without a purpose to ignite
In the mist of inspiration whispers are composed
awakening a brilliant artistry to behold
touching the heart of the one who reads the utterances
With the power of the pen and an inner sigh is how I begin
to tell the spiritual journey’s lore of wisdom gained through pain
not with a New Year’s resolution that will remain unkept
instead with a choice each day to release the words unwept
Therefore, there are no expectations to disappoint
only desires that are fulfilled beyond imagination’s point
As I stare at the bare pages before me…
to scribe this poet’s heart for all to see.
