This poem is about the most magical kind of romantic bonding between two hearts…

The one that teaches us that love is infinite, knows no fear, sadness or rejection. It knows no boundaries and is able to be no matter what. That kind of love waits for nothing, doesn’t ask or demands. It only is.

The Sun Shines on Sacred Unions
by Sophie Gregoire

The sun is bright
Golden and Blue
As are you.

There were
a million deaths, for sure,
But love never dies.
We are the evidence of that.

The sacred shield.

Beyond the thread of all,
The back and forth,
We have never been.

I recall the sun
Our sunny days,
The rousing melodies.
But the past is nothing
Compared to,
What love will be.

We have risen
Above the oceans, the seas
Bigger than doubts
Fears, slow symphonies
And dark notes.
Bigger than time,
Than space
Bigger than life itself,
I believe.

Yes we are
Together and free,
Stronger than everything

The golden shield.

If love were a song,
That would be your

If love could move
Like colors,
It would be a rainbow
Shining,  as is your smile,
Bigger than the sky.

If love were a game,
It would be us
Running as children
Across green country.
The trees are asking
Who will catch
The other, and when

If love were art
It would be your hands
And me
My skin
My lips,
And the curves of my hair
Your most successful painting,
Our most powerful art
The most promising,

The sacred shield.

The throne
In my heart,
Shekhina lives her life,
And strangely
She almost doesn’t
What rainbows sound like
Worry or wonder.

But the divine feminine
Knows no endings.

She just Is.

Queens belong to the Sun
No matter what.
And love is,
And Shekhina remains
The golden shield.

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…
