Sometimes, it is difficult to listen to our hearts and souls...

 This poem is about the challenge of listening to our hearts and souls for the answers we seek in our lives, and about letting nature guide us with her messages when we have difficulty hearing to what's within us. 

Path of the Heart
by Gwen Potts

There is a path

Through all of this
Bringing choices
Causing us to question

Which way to go?

Human minds
So full of thoughts..

Logic and reason..

..For Truth.

Our hearts
They know!
They really do hear
The truth
Calling us forward
To reveal
Our deepest longings

To be fully..
Alive to it all!

Our hearts will surprise us
As Love Blossoms
Suddenly its there
Nature calls with
The gentlest of whisper
To bring growth ..

Beyond compare.
All of those reasons!
Born within the
Deepest of fear
Eventually they
Stall our process
Just as..
Nature whispers

Let go.
Love will call
Us onward
Appear from no where
Awakening us
From our slumber
Bringing the unexpected
Into the core
Of who we are

To awaken our potential..
Relighting the fire within!

There is a reason
Why all of this
Is here..
A perfect timing
That can only
Be orchestrated
By natures
Divine Call

She will awaken our senses
Teach us to become
Our own best guide

So then..
We travel onward
Upon this path laid bare
Born from natures dancing
Beckoning us forward
This path..
Simply Incomparable...

To all paths before.

This path will guide us
To live from truth
To hear natures rhythms
Hearts beating in tune

Consciousness expanding
You simply feel the truth
The way to walk
Now is simple
As you honour

Your inner truth.
There is no other option
But to listen now
Let our souls dance
For one sweet second
Exploring it's completion
Coming full circle
At long last..

It really is time
To change...
All that came before
Time to let go
Of what used
To be true
Igniting commitment
To the path
Laid before
With real honor
A humble gentle, grace

Practice feeling deeply
Into all choices
Presented each day
Nature will support
Our growth on wards
In every single way


Humble to her truth.

 Just as
Nature will guide us
Bringing worthwhile
Lessons to be learnt
We simply must know
That born from
Within these seeds
Is the path forward

To becoming truly
Who we are

When we finally let go
Allowing nature to guide us
From our core
To those messages
On the breeze..
We shall know once more

The truth will become clearer
As we look out
Upon a glassy lake
Still within
Within the reflection..

Truth will appear. 

There are messages
Within ocean tides
In the cycles of the moon
The way that nature
Speaks to us
Will shake us
To the core!

She reflects to us
The path forward
With her gentle whisper
She will appear..
Nature will endorse us
Through synchronicities
Gentle heed..

Knowing now
From a place
Deep within
The real, honest, brutality
Of natures last call
It takes great courage
To walk along
The path
Of the warriors truth

Nature support us
Her brutal honesty
Knowing now fully

The simple truth...
It is the
Only way to go

As truth
Became our candle
Through each dark day
Calling us onward

To evolve..

Finally letting...

The Soul the way.

I love to read all sort of spiritual articles, poetry and especially anything written from the heart. Poetry has always been a vehicle of expression for me, so they are always written about things I am currently working through.  If you resonate and would like to follow my Facebook page and my Soul Harmonic blog here, please do! It's most encouraging when people read and comment on the poems! I hope they will touch many people and let them know they are not alone in the depth of their feelings, as others are experiencing the same, somewhere out there.

I AM STILL HERE by Janavi Held


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

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…
