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

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.
