MY DIVINE LOVER by Emelina Holland

This poem nourishes my soul each time I read it... 

Free poetic form has become a sacred way for me to capture and express the wholeness of my personal spiritual practice as a Practical Mystic: to describe it and to share with others for teaching purposes. "My Divine Lover"  has allowed me to voice my intimate connection and relationship with my Higher Self (Divine Source) in total oneness. This piece has served me as a sacred channel to express my deep inner awareness and inner work, compassion, love and the gratitude I feel towards my personal/spiritual growth which I get to apply to my everyday life. 

My Divine Lover
by Emelina Holland

And it is in my darkest moments
when you continue to softly undress me
so that I can see more depths within myself.
that had escaped my curious sight.
that you caress with your loving light.

And it is your gentle touch 
The one that holds my tears 
one by one
as you turn them into pearls
you always find a way to make me smile.

And it is in my alone moments
when the silence speaks louder than my mind
you invite me with a sacred song
to fully and truly trust my heart,
the darkness of the unknown,
to fully be and live 
present in the now.

You then embrace me with your warmth
holding strong anything of me that is left behind;
when no part of me is any longer able to hide
I am truly transparent and naked
as I am…Eternally brought back to life,
with my soul fully awakened
I am everything I ever was; 
woven strands 
with all that I am now
and unspoken threads 
of what I am yet to become.

You are the source of inspiration
the one that guides me 
as I write 
my book of life...
You are the poem 
in every page
that has magically made me 
into who I AM.

You are the sacredness 
that runs through my veins…
The Divine Lover with whom 
I make love!
You are my Divine Lover,
the one...
to which 
I give my All.

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…

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…
