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

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
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
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
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!

I AM STILL HERE by Janavi Held


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

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…
