DANCING WITH WORDS by Gwen Potts

This poem is an exploration of divine creativity…

An exploration of those times when we are connected to something deeper within us. That connection can then guide us through the storms of our life and enrich our connection to the divine feminine, enabling us to find our most authentic, truest expression of who we truly are. This to me is the purpose (and challenge) of our lives!'

Dancing With Words

Oh!
To know myself completely...
Trusting my own hearts calling!
As I stand here
Deeply grounded in MY beautiful body
This vessel gifted to me in life
Through which I express my deepest nature
Alive and free flowing
Allowing me to dance wildly in beauty
Of my own pure radiance
Allowing my natural self to always shine through!
Through the beat of the drum
Alive and pulsating
Connected life force energy
Creating 'me' through life
Nourishing from deeply within
I AM Beautiful, Passionate, Creative and Whole
Even as my feet dance through the mud in my life
Bare naked feet
Stamping out a tribal rhythm
The dance of MY SOUL!

Gently accepting
Nurture and nourish
Wrapping myself up
In my heart's loving embrace
I am my own exotic lover
Soul Mate
Mother
Best friend
Making love to myself
With gentle compassion
A seed inside growing
Birthing a more evolved expression of 'me'

Allowing in creativity
Natural abundance and grace
A sexually creative dance to my highest self
Being free spirited
Spontaneous
Feeling my souls highest call
While dancing out this feelings
A gift of creativity and healing
Within it all

Imagine myself totally open!
Vulnerability blossoming like Spring
Giving away freely genuine smiles
Magnetic in nature
Like Moon's influence on the tide!
To truly feel I am perfect yet imperfect
That I am enough just the way that I am
Even if just for the smallest of moments
As I ponder the stars
Knowing they are a part of me
Focus on strength, compassion and trust
Instead of the trauma's
That shook me to the core
When just a child
So new to it all
I'm ready to dance through the pain
Kick off the shoes of my childhood
Dance to a different tune now

Look! The ocean sparkles
So cleansing and clear
Swelling
Flowing
Crashing
Dancing
Flirting Wildly
With the shore!
Laughter erupts at this playful delight
During nature's sacred dance with the divine
Or just sitting
Listening intently to birds sweet chorus
Sound penetrating the sky and all around
Like living in a jungle
Of exotic birds!
I can hear them from deeply within my own being
Feeling the Oneness
Calling me deeper
Look closer still?

Can I move past these limitations?
The beliefs I hold at my core?
Let go of all of these expectations?
Clearly seeing now
The self limitations
Born of a childhood spent in despair
Forgive myself of a lifetime's burden

After all I was born into the world this way
As I choose this on some unseen level
I can no longer myself betray
Never shown how to trust my own deepest feelings
Never knew I am sacred at my core
Will I ever transform all the darkness around me
Dare to step fully into my light?
Any anger and frustration
A catalyst to a new dawning
I shall dance a new 'me' into the world
Re-birthing and new chapter
An evolved story and perspective
Dancing a new being into the world
I shall transform the depth of my pain
Into something new
I have a thousand gifts to share
Creativity unlocked with some divine key
My goodness...
Truly feeling how beautiful I am
My own highest self
I am breathtaking
Truly splendid
As I now merge
Collecting the fragmented parts of my soul
Birthing a new being
Pulsating and alive with light!

It's amazing that I write and express these feelings freely
Put pen to paper
A nourishment for my soul
Little by little writing out all the darkness
Forgiving myself for not having all the answers
Stilling the analytical mind
Treating myself with an ever greater
Acceptance and grace
Acknowledging my own true self

Just let go!
Of minds ultimate destination!
Rejoice that I can just be my unique self
I am enough just as I am
No box or category to justify my existence
Just make a commitment
To pursue what makes me come alive
Tap into my innate creativity
Feel the rhythm through MY music
As I stamp my feet in tune with my internal rhythm
Acknowledging fully my unique song sheet
Absorbing each note, each sound, each rhythm
Expressing it ALL!

Until I feel …...
Whole and Complete!

Even if just for a glimmer...
One sweet second...
I shine...

But always dancing wildly onwards…
Through this journey of my life!

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…
