THE JOURNEY TO THE HEART by Sophie Gregoire

Our journeys to love and life, to lights and shadows, are the journey to our hearts…

When thinking about all the steps I have already taken, or will need to take, to go further on the road of life, or the steps I have already taken or will undertake to get closer to my inner melody, I have noticed that the heart was, now and always, the key.

Reaching our heart is reaching our core. Reaching our core is listening to the music our soul longs to play. It means getting connected both to our deepest part and to the whole, the Universe.

I believe that it is only by reaching our soul's song we may become, truly and with no boundaries, ourselves. Only by reaching our soul's song may we see how small we are in the universe at all times, but also, how connected we all are. And we will see how conventional time and space are to express such beauty: the beauty around us, and that of our strong, resilient, warrior hearts. We are all like trees in the forest of life!

So below, I wanted to express the importance of our connection to the heart and soul. Which may, I hope, always give birth to the best in us, our most natural qualities: The desire to love, to see the beauty of our world and to live a life of respect and truth.


The Journey To The Heart
by Sophie Gregoire

Dear Heart,

I still don’t know,
How we may feel
On our way to hopes,

On the road to dreams.

Still wondering,
If the sun will always
Set over our songs that alight,
Every breath
Make our pulse,
That lively.
But I do hope,
Sweet Lady Heart,
That until the end
Of all dawns,
You’ll savor magic.

Dear Heart,
Still wondering
Which grounds,
Our paces may tread upon
Which oceans,
Our eyes may caress
By which sunset,
We may be tucked in.
But at least,
I do hope,
At heart,
You’ll see, discover and learn,
How close we all are,
On every little side
Of our swinging world,
Aerial blends of shadow and light,
All, each of us,
Climbing the mountains of dreams.

Still wondering,
Who we may love.
Whose kisses,
Which sparkling smiles
Whose hands,
Which witty one.
But I do wish,
At heart,
Symbiosis will be deep.
Your slightest atoms,
Awakened
Spring-blooming,
Till purple blood.
Jumping of joy
You and Him,
On your roads to the sky,
As dancing wolves
Under a bright moon,
Painting desires
The eyes lit up
Lit up and filled,
Filled with blue stars.

Sweet lady,
Still wondering
Which souls,
We may come across
On the road to life.
If far from our own melody,
They’ll try and drive us
If windows to the world,
They’ll try and shut down.
Perhaps,
Soul-liars and heart-players
On the way we’ll glimpse,
But I do hope,
At heart,
Sweet lady,
You’ll understand, forgive, forget and leave
Walk away from roses thorns,
Instead of judging.

Lovely wanderer,
I hope,
Gypsy at heart that you’ll stay.
Now and then,
Here and always.
Never build borders,
Over the seas
But multicolor,
Sweet, bold ribbons
Thrown all around,
Around our colorful world
And,
As our own rhythm,
You and I.

With all heart,
Dear Heart,
I do wish
Our love never fades.
May I always,
Hold and cherish
These secrets of yours,
Art fantasies or purple nights
Lust for freedom or sunflowers,
As you wish,
Dear Lady Heart.
Hoping,
I will be bold enough
So that my eyes,
Can speak your words
My hands write,
Over the novel of life
In your most favorite,
Treasured calligraphy.

Dear Heart,
May we never forget
Both you and I,
As long as
We will be intertwined,
That we are Lovers at all times
As long as you’ll unveil,
Each day
And every hour,
Your magic keys and enchanting words
To me,
I give you my word:
A pink cheerful promise,
I’ll do my best
Always and forever,
To make them live.

Sweet Lady Heart,
Ache sometimes we will,
For sure
But lightly,
Though,
I believe…
Hearts don’t really suffer
When in search
For their golden dreams.

Dear Heart,
My love of all times,
I hope we choose
You and I,
Now and always,
Here and above the seas,
Our ways over theirs
Fire over safety
Mountains over plains
Love poems over reason
And above all,
May we hold in our heart,
Sunsets over diamonds,
Life over fear.

MY HEART SEEPS by Edith Lazenby

Courage is not only facing fear, but also looking past fear, to see what lies it tells and truths it saves...
Sometimes I sit at a computer in trepidation. The house trembles and I wonder what I will find. 
Truth is not a fact or a feeling. It may rest on love’s heart and walk with integrity. It may stand beyond humanity in ways we can only imagine. Truth can be solid as earth and fickle as wind. But a wind can know stillness and the earth can crack wide open.
Tonight I found a stillness in a crack and managed to balance there...


My Heart Seeps
by Edith Lazenby
I cannot hold on And I cannot let go. I walk a path I don’t know. I feel moonlight But cannot see Its orb midst The cloudy cold. My hands tremble. My eyes tear. My toes wriggle To grasp earth. I want to stand Tall in the light Yet fear shadows all. Inside I crumble Under the weight I cannot shoulder.

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…
