GLIMPSES by Angela Patrono

I believe in a Love that goes beyond life, death, time and space…

Time has no power on souls who love each other. Realizing this may turn your life upside down. Such glimpses give you the certainty that you’re not alone, that someone watches over you, that each single step of your journey is intertwined with many others in a deep Love connection. They may come in the form of a person, of a vision, of a dream. You can experience such blissful moments by diving into Art or creative stuff, meditating, praying, contacting your inner Self. The contact with the other part of myself has been a life-changing experience for me.

by Angela Patrono

Beyond flesh and bones,
beyond the sleeping sight
of the diamond river,
there is a Love deserving to be expressed
somewhere, someday, somehow.

Never ceasing to look for the Essence
for Time is just Eternity in disguise -
Beauty uncaught will always be
a playful glimpse of Immortality
guiding our straight path.

Even though earthly things will perish
there is some certainty from up above -
Light will be your trustful companion
and never let you go.

Angela Patrono is a writer, editor and translator from Italy. She believes in the power of creativity, which is closely linked to spiritual awakening. She also believes that poetry is a mysterious gift, a way of creating a world of our own, where words can really do magic. In her opinion, poetry is closer to visual art than you think. She draws most of her inspiration from Art, especially Sandro Botticelli’s. She is the founder and the admin of the Facebook pages Sandro Botticelli. Un Artista, mille emozioni and Filippino Lippi. In 2014 she released her first poetry book Voci dall’Iperuranio (Voices from the Hyperuranion). You can contact her on her blog.

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…
