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!

I AM STILL HERE by Janavi Held

EDITOR'S NOTE:

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

Depression
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…
