ADVENTURING IN LOVE by Lauren Love

Written one frosty winter morning when feeling incredibly romantic...

I was supposed to be getting ready but my soul had other plans. So words flowed through my finger tips, as I dreamt of my man, and a call to the Beloved, to Adventuring in Love emerged! I offer it to each of you today, on Valentine's Day! 


Adventuring in Love
by Lauren Love
  
I want to explore the world with you,
and make love under a blanket of stars,
to wake up nestled in your warm arms,
watching the sun rise for a brand new day.
I want to know I'm safe with you; 
that our love is our fierce protection.
I want to love you with the entirety of my being: 
Love you with my body, heart, mind and soul.
To cherish you and hold you, whether you're rising or falling, 
I'll be there through it all. 
I want to inspire you to live your dreams and to blossom into the greatness of who you came here to be. 
I want to explore, have fun, be childlike and play together,
like wonder-filled children awakening to our true nature.
I want to roll around in the woods,
walk barefoot in the sand,
make our own fires,
and explore distant lands.
I want to find our soul family,
unite as a tribe,
help those in need
and for us to collectively rise:
Inspiring and serving 
exploring our nature,
The Earth as our playground,
nourishment and savior. 
I want to pray with you, give praise with you and celebrate our human life 
through our senses, our magic, our love and our light, 
soaring to new heights
through music and dance, creativity and art.  
I want to be your partner, friend and guide of the heart 
and for you to be the same for me
meeting in equality,
understanding, compassion, kindness and love:
A blessing from above, a union divine 
meeting where our hearts melt in the bliss of true love, 
exploring Life together, 
adventuring as one.  
If this calls to your heart,
come, my love...
Let us unite our gypsy souls!
I'll be perched on the edge of eternity,
awaiting your presence,
for adventuring,
in love!

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…

SIT WITH ME by Carolyn Riker

I was invited to share a little about my newest book of poetry and prose, This is Love,written over several years. 
Last August I managed to slip off for three full nights and organize my surplus of poetry and prose. On the second night I realized there was an ample set of words leaning up against a pale amethyst pillow all dedicated to love. And in that sea of heartfelt renderings, I started to see a pattern of how This is Loveholds self-love, love of nature and the love lost and found in relationships. 
The middle section has sustained me over the years. The outer two sections have been stitched together by developing trust in self and understanding the variables of love are not always glorious but in fact difficult. When we love fully we can be hurt, betrayed, lied to, manipulated and in the end that very love space can become hardened or it continues to accept vulnerability as the magma of our heart’s flow. We recreate and grow. Flourishing has a trajectory of squalls, lulls, and jo…
