COLORS by Jasmine Kang

We live in a world that is like art painted by the Light in so many colors…

There is beauty in every moment, every day, every season, every color of life. It is a portrait to remember. Remember it and you will know how beautiful life really is.

Beauty lies right there in front of us always! I see it in every face and form that is before me. It makes me stop and think for a moment how much, really, is missed…

There is beauty and infiniteness in one. Sometimes I feel that what appears before me intermingles with the infiniteness of that very moment. I long to live every moment with this colorful vision. For isn’t it beautiful?

Colors

A beautiful day! A beautiful day!
The spirit sings in me. 
Where do you start?
What words are there to say? 

This is the way.
O, this is the way!
A beautiful day! 
A beautiful day! 

There is something to behold in every color.
How beautiful it is to be alive!
Here we are in a life just as beautiful.
Life before us is all so alive. 

The blue of the sky,
The coral from the reefs,
The pearls from the sea,
The dreams I behold and the spirit in me. 

Dancing, dancing, dancing away 
The shadow of your image 
Vanishes away
Into the colors of the dusk and far away. 

The green of spring,
A summer to remember,
The golden brown of autumn
and memories of last winter. 

Every color has its splendor 
Like the ray of light from the sun at day
And the moonlight above at night 
With stars that dance endlessly lighting up the skies. 

The blue of the sky,
The coral from the reefs,
The pearls from the sea,
The dreams I behold and the spirit in me. 

There is something to behold in every color.
How beautiful it is to be alive!
Here we are in a life just as beautiful.
Life before us is all so alive. 

A beautiful day! A beautiful day!
The spirit sings in me. 
Where do you start?
What words are there to say? 

This is the way.
O, this is the way!
A beautiful day!
A beautiful day!

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…
