Awakening to a New Day
by Lauren Love

I want to wake up each and every day 
with an anticipation of what shall unfold, 
with a childlike excitement about what magic this day will bring. 

I want to look out of the window 
and notice the light on the trees, 
the wind gently moving 
the leaves and the aliveness of all that is. 

I want to notice the light and the shine, 
the sparkle and the magic 
that underlies the misery and torment of the destructive mind. 
I want to see beyond the fears 
and illusionary stories that keep us constrained 
and masked from the truth of who we truly are. 

I want to stay open, to stay soft 
and to allow myself to be seen even when it’s terrifying 
and I want to burrow in my cave. 

I want to look people in the eye 
and truly see them and be seen;
to allow our souls to meet, 
to witness without judgment, 
to always see through the eyes of Love. 

I want to dance with life, 
to live in celebration and excitement 
of all that is being created in the moment. 
Mindful of every word, every thought, 
every action, every meeting 
and encounter that unfolds within the day.


I want to be free!
Truly free to see, to feel, to express myself
as the stream of consciousness that I am, 
the soul that is me. 
Free to love with the entirety of my being:
to surrender to Love. 
As I am love, 
and so are we,
let us see.

MY HEART SEEPS by Edith Lazenby

Courage is not only facing fear, but also looking past fear, to see what lies it tells and truths it saves...
Sometimes I sit at a computer in trepidation. The house trembles and I wonder what I will find. 
Truth is not a fact or a feeling. It may rest on love’s heart and walk with integrity. It may stand beyond humanity in ways we can only imagine. Truth can be solid as earth and fickle as wind. But a wind can know stillness and the earth can crack wide open.
Tonight I found a stillness in a crack and managed to balance there...


My Heart Seeps
by Edith Lazenby
I cannot hold on And I cannot let go. I walk a path I don’t know. I feel moonlight But cannot see Its orb midst The cloudy cold. My hands tremble. My eyes tear. My toes wriggle To grasp earth. I want to stand Tall in the light Yet fear shadows all. Inside I crumble Under the weight I cannot shoulder.

FOR THE SISTERS by Tammy T. Stone

These days, I’m finding it difficult – along with many, many others - not to feel disheartened...
I'm disheartened by the feeling that chaos has descended upon us, at the negativity and fear, the anger and reactivity, the violent spirit of animosity characterizing the times. It’s hard not to give in to the feelings of helplessness and hopelessness, even as we cling to the strong conviction that it is our positivity and our love that will prevail.
Every crevice of my heart goes out to the suffering (and we are all suffering when one of us suffers), and my heart aches for the untold numbers of women around the world who are immediately and devastatingly affected by recent decisions to cut funding to organizations vital to their health and wellbeing, a movement that horrifyingly undermines women’s sovereignty over their own bodies. Words do not do the feeling justice.
It feels to me that the earth itself is overturning, that our fragile grasp of what is right and true, of our incredibl…

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…
