LOVE NOTE ON MOTHER NATURE by Vrinda Aguilera

In ancient Vedic texts our Earth planet is personified as a goddess whose name is Bhumi Devi…

She is seen as one of the many types of mothers as she protects, provides and cares for us. We, ourselves, are but transient houseguests who have been graciously given a home and are the recipients of our generous earth mother's bounty.

May we all live with careful consideration, respect and compassion for each other and all living beings. May we embody true humility, grace, and service by treading gently as we inhabit Bhumi Devi's surface.

Slow down and feel her warm embrace...

Love Note on Mother Nature
by Vrinda Aguilera

At my best of times, at my worst of times
I have always turned to and received the comfort and reassurance
of Mother Nature.

She has always been there for me.
She enfolds me in her warm embrace.
I trust her and she loves me.

She soothes my upsets
with her soft, melodic sounds
as only she can do.

She strokes me with gentle breezes
and warms my heart
with the glowing of her sunshine.

She is strong, stable,
balancing, kind, and beautiful.
She is also wildly creative, passionate
and has a wicked sense of humor.

She is filled with contrasts
and is the most brilliant of artists that I have ever met.

She plays beautiful music and is joyful,
dramatic, bold, daring and shy all at the same time!

She holds my hand and we dance together whenever I like.

She knows me the best and accepts me for who I am,
and has never, ever judged me or made me feel less than.

Sometimes she laughs at me and teases me a bit.

Other times she pushes me just enough so I don't get stuck.

Always, she cares and loves me fully.
She invites me to do the same and isn't sad if I forget about her or doubt.
She knows that I am perfectly flawed and loves me anyways.

Best of all, she shows me the way, invites me along the path
and believes in me with all of her heart
which is very, very big:

Big enough, even, to fit the whole, wide world!

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…
