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

The Unspoken Pull

In Response To:

V.J.’s Weekly Challenge – What Pulls At Your Soul? 

After all is done

after all is quiet

the volume turns up

on my soul’s longings

I hear its cry of 

desolation

an unspoken ache

to be loved, even

if its only by 

one person–it would

be enough–a soulmate, friend

a desperate desire for

my soul to become

hallowed ground where the

 Wild Iris

can grow eternal

vibrant beauty that 

others will desire to

know and love…

It’s been a lifetime’s longing

and I only have one third

of a life’s time left

My soul’s pull cries out;

“Will I ever know this

before I leave this world?”

Composed In Love

In Response To:

Ragtag Daily Prompt – Sangfroid

Your Daily Word Prompt – Lapse – January 14, 2021

With a lapse in composure

many things can be 

said and done that can

cut deep into the soul of

a fellow human being

leaving them broken and

feeling like they are worthless…

Let us be composed in Love

knowing we are all

precious and valued creations

of God

always conveying this truth 

to others in words and

most importantly…

actions

Fearfully And Wonderfully Made

Broken pieces

each a story

of its own

shaped by its 

survival

lovingly sculpted

by the 

Healing Hand

into a unique

majestic beauty

only seen by the

eyes of the soul

for true, eternal

Beauty

is found only in

the broken, the flawed,

in the ugly 

that the human eye

cannot capture!
