My poem describes how relationships are often challenging yet truthful mirror to our own souls…

I’ve realized that it can take great courage to face our insecurities and open our hearts to love. We must be brave to allow greater integration of the lost parts of our soul, and dare to see and explore all the aspects of ourselves that are reflected in the other.
Dance of Divine Creation

As I connect to your soul
Looking deeply into your eyes 
I feel the depth of my own burning fire
Flames that dance through my body
Igniting sparks of the most divine imagination

Creative synergy 
A blending of energies
Understanding each other completely
No need for words
Similar in spirit
That needs no greater explanation
In this place our souls rejoice and flow together
Like a cluster of stars
Intricately connected
Sharing the dark night sky

Heavenly bodies sprinkled across this deep velvet night
Rich and embodied
Held by the love of the Universe
Shooting stars streak through with passion!
Alive for this single moment in time
A perfectly woven tapestry of darkness and light
Each one complimentary to the other

Our souls from some distant star 
Familiar from another lifetime
Never completely forgotten
I see myself in your eyes
A reflection of my soul
For the first time I feel comfortable 
I see my own light
Reflected so clearly in yours

Never feeling completely understood before this moment
Knowing each other from some distant planet
Connected here now on earth in physical form
I am reminded of some deeper truth of my soul
A shared journey through the stars
Through time and space
We collide again here in this moment
To inspire, create and explore together
This divine earth
A unique physical realm
Never before known by star souls

In this form 
I hold your hand
Standing softly by your side
Reminding me of my own true self
My own completeness
Human insecurities they surface
How deep to let go?

How far into this journey
A reflection of my soul
Daring to feel fear deeply
Broken hearts a possible reality
Can I run towards this pain...
Collide with the black hole within my soul?
Be absorbed into nothingness
Shattered apart and broken open
As the particles within the darkness reform
I recognize the energy of my soul
Reshaping and changing
Reborn creation of pure white light
Through the darkness 
And also because of it

My soul swirls and collects the energetic particles 
The black hole within the Universe of my own soul
Teaching me to be courageous 
My heart born and beating so strongly 
Now in your presence
I listen to my hearts pounding rhythm
As I stand before you
Discovering more about myself
I want this so much
To feel the deepest connection through love
Learning to love myself 

No longer running from away
Locking my heart from love forever
Can I be totally honest with all I am within?
Welcome in the separate, split parts of my psyche
That you help me to see here with a rare vibrantly
The universe weaves the perfect circumstance
To see these lessons and inspire growth
I come for a moment to rest in this place
Where even though I feel the pain 
The parts of myself left abandoned
From some fear of total annihilation
I am ready to let in these truths!
Becoming Whole

Smiling with knowing
Etched on the corners of my lips
Recognizing this beautiful universal process
Helping and supporting my journey
In the most genuine way
Like the closest friend
Whom never lies
Nor placates just to make better
But shares with you some hard truth
Gently facilitating healing
Supporting while I look into the blurred mirror
Cracked and broken from so many attempts
At throwing the mirror away
Hoping to run from myself
To some safe place
No longer can I run from these cracks 
So obvious now
The pain from staying tightly closed 
Now outweighs the pain needed to grow beyond them

Moment of pure clarity
A profound truth
It really is SO magical!
Stardust falls down from a heavenly sky
Igniting my heart and soul
Helping me dance through the insecurity and pain
Accept myself completely 
So beautiful this feeling of connection!
Connection through my own heart
Allowing and accepting in all the abandoned parts of my soul
A Shamanic journey through the cosmos
I beat this universal drum 
Finally begin to flow 
With the tune of life 
Instead of missing so many beats

Through you I see myself more clearly
The best gift we can share 
Opening to our deepest selves
Welcoming in all the lost light
Feeling love this way for the first time
In this body here and now
Connection through hearts and souls!

Your Soul
My Soul
And the universe
As One

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…
