I HAVE TREASURES by Louise Marcotte Desrosiers

Finding myself also meant losing the need and want for the material "goodies" in life…

I've realized that what holds true value is what's in your heart, and how you live from that special place.

I Have Treasures

Moments,
tapping at my soul
waking me-shaking me
out of pain, sorrow and disbelief-
all forced-so far down
for far too long
so lost in who I am...
appearances can be deceiving-
expressions of happy and content
within myself, I was neither...
to be specific is timely,
so it will suffice for me to say-
learn to listen through your soul
speak through your heart
find gratitude daily-
the more you see, the more you'll feel
the Love you give, you'll receive-
it will find and flow it's way to you...
my treasures, quite simple,
you can't hold it in your hand-
or read in a book
the more you allow
into your own journey-
there's no going back
you just don't want to...

Louise Marcotte Desrosiers: I started writing one year ago this month, August 2013, through a calling from spirit.  Inspired to write from my heart, it quickly turned to spiritual/inspirational poetry. I’ve written every day since, both journaling and writing poetry.  In January I started my own page: Eva’s Garden-A Poets Delight. I have written for Women as Visionaries with Lore Raymond. I also have recited spoken word at a spiritual event at The Holistic Rejuvenation Center in Sacramento California. This journey of writing is only the beginning. I am now in a Apprenticeship program leading me to my true spiritual calling of Shamanism. Going within my soul, asking my guides for further assistance on my writing, I feel that I am called to write poetry, to bring healing and wellbeing to women.

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…
