Gently Until Morning by Caroline Mellor A poem for my son, age 5 When you were little, you had these big, enormous dreams -   like you’d wake up in the night screaming and  I’d have to hold you until morning  just to calm you down. Sometimes  you’d lie in bed for an hour after waking,  not wanting to talk to anyone, still coming round  from wherever you’d just been;  your dreams were so real  they’d stay with you all day,  as though you half-lived in this other place  where I couldn’t find you,  where I couldn’t stop bad things from happening,  more than you did in the waking world.  The night terrors stopped -  but you always had one foot in the dream world,  you were always partly not mine.  One day, when you’re grown,  I know I won’t always be able to find you,  or to stop bad things from happening.  When that day comes,  I pray the world holds you gently until morning.  Because you never were mine, really, you just came through me.   And because the world needs dreamers like you, k


  Beacon of Peace, Bearer of Light by Carolyn Chilton Casas              ~ for lightworkers the world over Thank you for being the keeper of decency and a way pointer for us all.           I bow to the everyday kindness you humbly extend  to your fellowkind.            I feel your prayers for a bewildered world zipping through the air from all ends of the earth.                I honor the unseen work  you do for humanity  behind closed doors, bringing  wisdom to soothe confusion.                Together we unite to serve one another, and in our purpose to create a more loving place for our children  and for those yet to come.   We hold hands in a circle  across land masses and oceans— lighted candles of connection emanating from our hearts.   The good we generate  illuminates, it beckons,  it makes all the difference. Carolyn Chilton Casas   lives on the central coast of California, the perfect landscape for a love of nature, hiking, and playing beach volleyball. She is a Reiki master

YOU ARE ENOUGH by Kalindi Dinoffer

  You Are Enough By Kalindi Dinoffer   You know those days where it just feels  like everything's going wrong sideways and backwards and maybe the day is fine but you're wrong sideways and backwards like maybe you're  not enough...   Here's the thing: Even on those days You are enough Yes you just you just me just we   You don't have to do anything to prove your worth  you are always enough in the eyes of God hugging you from within   You are enough I am enough We are enough   You are loved just as you are dark crevices and all   You are enough  and you are loved even though you're not perfect  So don't run away  don't hide   Get comfy in your own skin it's a gift lean into vulnerability  lean into fear and shame lean into dark thoughts embrace them like long lost lovers   It doesn't work to hide the parts of you you'd rather not reckon with they'll be the elephant  in the room  growing bigger and bigger  until they consume you   Try invi
