TURN YOUR TV SPIRIT ON by Nejoud Al-Yagout

In life, we are vibrate at various frequencies of consciousness…

These two poems are from my first book of poetry, This is an imprint, which is a compilation of 58 pairs of poems. The first poem in each pair is written on a low frequency or angst, grief or identity crisis while its response is written from a higher level of consciousness or awareness. Turn Your TV Spirit On discusses a selfish love in which the speaker sees only the beloved. This love brings with it pleasure and pain. The response - Turn Your Spirit On - is a poem about expansive, universal love and the field that unites all of humanity.

Turn your TV spirit on
by Nejoud Al-Yagout

I have surfed the channels of your soul
Electric vibes cascaded from your aura

In one field of energy, I swallowed your pain
In one field of energy, I dwelt with madness
(encumbered by la vie jolie)
In one field of energy, I cherished youthfulness
In one field of energy, I knew you would give in 
(to the scattered seagulls on the shore)
In one field of energy, I softly challenged your essence
In one field of energy, I danced with darkness
(befriending the sunless jasmines on the pavement)
In one field of energy, I welcomed your faith
In one field of energy, I walked along the lines of your soul

I have surfed the channels of you
And the secret is ours

Turn Your Spirit On 

There is only one field of energy
And that's not a secret (any more)

It may look black or white
But it is one field

Neither gray, nor colorless
Neither here, nor there
Nor nowhere

Just one field
No need to yield to it
For we are already there

There is only one field of energy
And it's mighty fine.

THE JOURNEY by Mary Oliver

Today we honor Mary Oliver (1936-2019) and all the words she left behind. May they inspire you on your journey! 

Excerpt from Mary Oliver’s book Long Life: Essays and Other Writings:

"Poets must read and study...but, also, they must learn to tilt and whisper, shout, or dance, each in his or her own way, or we might just as well copy the old books. But, no, that would never do, for always the new self swimming around in the old world feels itself uniquely verbal. And that is just the point: how the world, moist and bountiful, calls to each of us to make a new and serious response. That's the big question, the one the world throws at you every morning. 'Here you are, alive. Would you like to make a comment?'"



The Journey
By Mary Oliver 
One day you finally knew what you had to do, and began, though the voices around you kept shouting their bad advice-- though the whole house began to tremble and you felt the old tug at your ankles. "Mend my life!" each voice cried. But y…

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…

OFFERING ON AN AUTUMN DAY by Nancy Carlson

I was inspired by the Fall Equinox to write this poem...  
There is this feeling of an offering of sorts...of my whole being: body, mind, soul, senses and emotions. It happens inwardly, yet is also reflected outwardly: an expression of all those parts of me.
It is this quiet time within where I wait, the whole of me, for this Love to come. What better reason, then, to write this poem, as it comes through me!

Offering on an Autumn Day
Red and orange leaves blowing in the wind. Grey skies, the bluish color of my eyes. Fall arrives the season of my birth, at home in the cool Autumn air. Wrapped in fine cloth, hues of red, orange blue and brown. Soft pale skin and golden hair.
It is the time to go back in. Larimar-like blue eyes that see so much beyond the seen. Like a tiger in the grass, waiting...
Grounded in this time of season changed. Comfortable with a cup of tea, book in han
