HEAVEN by Taryn Thompson

I wrote this poem 2 years ago…

I left Arizona for Florida a little over 2 yrs. ago to get clean and sober. I was in an abusive marriage and living a very hard life.

I came to Florida but not without the help of my God. I wrote a whole book of Poems when I came Florida and ‘Heaven’ was one of the first ones I wrote. I believe it speaks for itself.


Your heat radiates my golden tapestry
melting my very being:
My flesh peeling back the essence of all my colored petals.
Silence echoing in the background of the horned call crying out mercy.
Nature’s very own love saying 
“Take me now. I'm yours, God!”
Now and forever more 
perched on the winds, 
I soar into the sun
blinded by the radiant rays: 
gold glistening on my wings, 
diamonds in my voice and pearls in my hair.
An emerald waterfall flowing like a storm along my back 
and a blaze at my feet.
I stand on a mountain. 
God gently holding my hand kissing my cheek:
All is well in heaven for 
God Is.

Taryn Thompson: “I am 35 years old, mother of two awesome boys: Hayden and Gage. I love to sing and dance. I love the outdoors and nature: camping, fishing, and exploring. I love adventure and want to travel the world. I love to write outdoors, and dream of writing poetry all over the world. I would love to help people, however God wants to use my service. I like motorcycles and I have always been a tomboy. I am a dreamer and believe in Love so I like writing about God and Love poetry. My spiritual beliefs have changed through the years on my journey. I believe God is Love and he works in very mysterious ways. I love my family, friends, and support network. I was born and raised in Arizona by a single mother. I currently live in Florida.

MY HEART SEEPS by Edith Lazenby

Courage is not only facing fear, but also looking past fear, to see what lies it tells and truths it saves...
Sometimes I sit at a computer in trepidation. The house trembles and I wonder what I will find. 
Truth is not a fact or a feeling. It may rest on love’s heart and walk with integrity. It may stand beyond humanity in ways we can only imagine. Truth can be solid as earth and fickle as wind. But a wind can know stillness and the earth can crack wide open.
Tonight I found a stillness in a crack and managed to balance there...

My Heart Seeps
by Edith Lazenby
I cannot hold on And I cannot let go. I walk a path I don’t know. I feel moonlight But cannot see Its orb midst The cloudy cold. My hands tremble. My eyes tear. My toes wriggle To grasp earth. I want to stand Tall in the light Yet fear shadows all. Inside I crumble Under the weight I cannot shoulder.

FOR THE SISTERS by Tammy T. Stone

These days, I’m finding it difficult – along with many, many others - not to feel disheartened...
I'm disheartened by the feeling that chaos has descended upon us, at the negativity and fear, the anger and reactivity, the violent spirit of animosity characterizing the times. It’s hard not to give in to the feelings of helplessness and hopelessness, even as we cling to the strong conviction that it is our positivity and our love that will prevail.
Every crevice of my heart goes out to the suffering (and we are all suffering when one of us suffers), and my heart aches for the untold numbers of women around the world who are immediately and devastatingly affected by recent decisions to cut funding to organizations vital to their health and wellbeing, a movement that horrifyingly undermines women’s sovereignty over their own bodies. Words do not do the feeling justice.
It feels to me that the earth itself is overturning, that our fragile grasp of what is right and true, of our incredibl…

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…
