PEACE ENTERS MY HEART by Maureen Kwiat Meshenberg

Peace Enters My Heart

peace enters my heart
though I have touched-
the chaos of my living,
it sometimes wears-
on my soul,
I settle inside,
the sanctuary
of the season,
it clothes me in rest-
I come to greet my day,
with love-
reaching inside,
this quiet-
winter morning-
let it move from me,
songs that echo-
peace on earth,
it is from my heart-
a beginning is birthed,
I reach-
and take your hand,
we enter into-
our holy place,
of comfort and love-
of peace and grace.

CHRISTMAS CALLED ME IN by Cheryl Anne Maris

Christmas Called Me In by Cheryl Anne Maris
Christmas called me in To the heart’s quieter place Away from all work and worry And the intrusion of outer images
Christmas called me in To that space where I am free From the illusion of entitlement And the laughable notion of intellectual property
Christmas called me in To the Realm of the Infant Into helplessness and crying And the universal truth of vulnerability
Christmas called me in To the Hope already born To the ending written Long before the prologue wet the page
Christmas called me in To Love Uncontainable And the sustainable peace Of Its full foregone And future surrender
Christmas called me in To the tender seeing of the Midnight Clear And the gentle hearing of the Silent Night Senses bestowed upon the lovelorn and senseless
Christmas called me in To the cradle of the defenseless The Light of the World shining On, In, and Through Eternity, You, and Me. ~


Cheryl Anne Maris: As a very young girl, I discovered the magic of turning my observations and swirling tho…

NOTE TO SELF by Sarah Carlson

NOTE TO SELF
Whenever you feel
 that frosty tightness,
just breathe –
 through it, with it, 
around it, within it.
Warm your wonderful waters 
 simply by beholding 
the beauty of now, 
allowing archaic agonies
to soften and drizzle away.
Recognize that
your foundation is strong,
your flow genuine.
Though some shadows remain,
trust that you will attend to them
if need be.
Celebrate the gentle peace 
that cascades  through and all around you.
Relax into your
uniquely radiant truth.
Live –
be fully alive,
 enjoy the joyous rhythms
of omnipresent love.

GAZING INTO INFINITY by Irma Aguilar-Olivas

GAZING INTO INFINITY

When you gaze into a woman's eyes...
prepare to cross the threshold
into the house of her soul...
it is there, where her strength and
beauty will greet you

In the light where a thousand flowers grow
you may want to stay forever...
within the sunrise & sunset of her gaze
wrapped in the arms of her magnitude
adrift within the ancient sea of yesterdays

her eyes reveal she is of passion,
enchantment & fortitude
the place where galaxies are reawakened

Come...
set-sail-forth into the depths
of her extended amplitude
your heart will sing
in the infinity of love unshaken.
