WINGS by Vesna Anastasia Bozovic


 I wrote this song while contemplating the way our heart gets broken so often in the relationships of this world....

Sometimes these relationships are so intense, that they seem to stretch across lifetimes! In Eastern traditions it is believed that the souls we encounter on our path are all there to help us go deeper into our relationships with our selves and God. Sometimes, they are the same souls, over and over again, and sometimes, new ones, but always bringing us closer to pure love.

Although the lyrics of this song came to me around fifteen years ago, they are just now gaining their own wings. I think timing is mystical, and sometimes we cannot see the value in our broken heart until many years later. But broken hearts are good, because they always long to fly toward something deeper, and more real. If we follow them, I believe they will take us there.

This is also my understanding of art: Krishna, or God, speaks to us through our own intuitive heart in the poems we compose and the music we write. In sharing these poems and this music, we sometimes find direction or inspiration on our own heart’s journeys, giving our heart wings and addressing its yearning for true and pure love. 

Wings

Will you tell me who you are?
When my wings touch Your star
In search for love
In the World of Reality
Of joy and purity
Real reality
Of love in dignity.

Will your tears fade away
Into silence
While you pray for your way
Into reality of real awakening
Real reality
Your noble sensuality

On your lips there is a smile
When my wings touch your star
For a while
Feelings of reality
Of selfless Surrendering
Real reality
of love’s intensity.

I AM STILL HERE by Janavi Held

EDITOR'S NOTE:

This was composed by a very gifted and beautiful soul: a regular contributor to our poetry project, and dear friend of mine, Janavi Held, whose life is gradually being taken from us by an incurable illness. She has been suffering from Complex Regional Pain Syndrome and Internal Adhesions for six painful years now, and neither her insurance nor the government healthcare will help her. She reaches out to us, her sisters, as a last plea. This is a poem she wrote yesterday on her birthday, in which she offers us the gift of her friendship. May it touch your generous hearts and inspire you to reach out to her in her plight.


Dear Friends,

The last time I was able to leave the house was by ambulance on my way to the hospital. After many long hours in the emergency room I was admitted and taken upstairs. After everyone left I sat on the hospital bed, knees to chest, bracing my body against the pain and trembling.

The light of this cold day was fading. I turned my eyes to the la…

IMAGINE A WOMAN by Patricia Lynn Reilly

This poem invites you to look upon yourself with loving kindness…
Gazing at your own true reflection, you will discover that everything you have longed for “out there” is already within you! I invite you to love your creativity fiercely. Faithfully plant seeds, allowing under-the-ground dormant seasons, nurturing your creative garden with love and gratitude. In the fullness of time, the green growing things thrust forth from the ground. It's a faithful, trustworthy process. AND it takes time and patience.  Blessed is the fruit of your creative womb! I invite you to trust your vision of the world and express it. With wonder and delight, paint a picture, create a dance, write a book, and make up a song. To give expression to your creative impulses is as natural as your breathing. Create in your own language, imagery, and movement. Follow no script. Do not be limited by the customary way things have been expressed. Your creative intuition is original. Gather all of life into your inner c…

DEPRESSION by Veronica Carpenter

Depression
Here goes my vulnerability A heart on a sleeve The typical person who looks at me May not see the same me that I live with daily The mind in the air, swirling with possibility When the darkness rallies/gathers/swirls When I am left to solitude This paper-thin garb unzips Here comes depression          
No I don’t want to advertise So flash a smile Those who are close get to see Through the veil, it’s really not that thick Circumstances in life like to stab at the rib Stumble, fall behind the door Shut out the world Feelings well and weigh down Strength hidden deep in the core So deep that sometimes it’s forgotten Here comes the darkness My old friend Sweeping through my every move  Doubts, fears, un-named masked men Oozing like honey, sticking to everything
Patience is required to get on this ride There is a cycle but its pattern is unknown Slowly my gift will unwrap itself Stay on the path Coming back to that which never truly left me Just laid sleeping out of exhaustion from the fight Dormant in winter…
