I love to venture into the inner calm…
It brings me to the inner shores of my own belonging. It is a sacred place where I can temporarily bid farewell to the cares of this world. As I go to this secret place of mine, I hear the whispers of the voice within me returning to the birthright of my own divinity, and plunge into the calm.
Into the Calm
by Sonja Marie Phillips- Hollie
As I wander through this sunless garden
I sit down beside nature-
She whispers her truth to me
I plunge into the calm.
I leave the chaos
of the world behind me
and discover my greater self.
Hidden in the mysteries
lurking within the calm waters,
I sense her presence-
the one who hides from me.
No longer torn or broken
I surrender to the tormenting winds
of constant change.
Emptying the darkest sediments of my soul
I return to the birth of my divinity
wave after wave
I’m drenched in immortal love.
Sonja Marie Phillips- Hollie: I was born in the Windy City of Chicago but now reside in Texas. I have a degree in Spanish and have worked as a bilingual translator, supervisor and Data Analyst for Student Life Programs on campus. One of my life passions has been acting as a counselor and mentor for at risk high school students. I enjoy reading and writing poetry, dancing and hope to one day write my first novel. I am a blend of many different ethnicities, and embrace them all! I also have a fascination with Egypt: a theme that often appears in my poems. I'm a mother of three beautiful daughters. My hope is that my poetry touches someone’s heart, comforts the lonely, or redeems a lost soul.
