JOURNEY by Fateme Banishoeib

‘Journey’ is the opening poem of a collection of poetry and photos…

This collection is called Tea of Tibet, and collects the desire to explore and discover what makes us all human. Traveling to Tibet has been a dream coming reality for me.:Traveling far enough to meet myself.

Anthony Bourdain said that travel isn’t always pretty. It is not, nor is it comfortable, and it leaves marks in the memory and heart. As children, we are told that dreams help us to live better. As women, we learn dreams make our spirits restless. The dream is to leave something good behind.

During my travels, I used my eyes to see beyond the dreams; creating an extension of the heart using my pen and my camera. The magic is making up the journey as we go! Remembering who we are, and not what we are told to be in order to fit in.

This poem is dedicated to women who dream, to those who are forever seeking. May you also find yourself upon your journey! 

Journey
by Fateme Banishoeib


Separating the seeds from the dirt 

Discriminating

Making the difference 

Choosing 

Self-determining our intrinsic nature 

Without bending to “Sort of”


What do I crave?

What do I desire?

For what do I yearn?


The checkpoints to ourselves 

Holding to the inner energy of no cheating 

The journey to me


The trip to forget who I became

and remember who I am 

Walking

Talking


Under the roof of the world

A vacation from what I am not

That leaves only one me


The one thirsty for illuminate water pouring from the spring

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…

DIVINE LOVE by Vidya Chetan

I was thinking about this month of February as a special month for many who celebrate love, and of thefreshness and brilliance this time of year brings to one's life. ❤️

But when I think of love, my thoughts always go towards the Divine: my Lord Krishna. I believe there is nothing more precious in this world than the divine love he bestows upon me. My mind and heart are filled with love for Him  more than anyone. I penned down this poem just to express my feelings towards him, for I believe that God’s love is incomparable, unrivaled, unique, exceptional and precious than anything in this world.

Divine Love 
Vidya Chetan

O, my Lord Krishna! 
I bow down to your lotus feet,
which give me an immense sensation of tranquility,
calming my soul deep within.
Whatever outer turmoil or chaos I face
evaporates before your smiling face 
instantly releasing me from agony. 
You lift me when I am depressed
and grant me courage to face the world.

I overlook difficult surroundings
in your presence.
You heal my he…
