Personal Choices: Poetry for those times you have to decide

Image
\

Hi! Welcome back!

Here are some new poems. I hope you enjoy them.
Most of my writing this summer has been put toward  either a new chapbook or full-length poetry book that I am working on. I am amazed it is already August. How about you?




Decisions


Look carefully, slowly within
for the answer you seek
is already there
the path is already paved

You are not alone in your quest
and inspiration will find you when you rest
when you allow yourself to just be

Place your faith in your inner wisdom and
your choices will be clear
your decisions will bring you peace





Adventure


What does the soul crave
adventure or purpose -
maybe knowledge, perhaps?
For the seeking of things draws them near, with
the hum of  their fulfillment becoming more dear
and it leads me to wonder
why do I feel like something is missing
if I am not sure of what to do next
if my plan of action isn't detailed enough

Perhaps I would do well to stop
embrace the moment, and let
nature have her way.



Thank you again for stop…

Gratitude and Beauty; Taking it all in

Image
Hi!

Welcome, and thanks for being here. I hope your summer is going well.
Busy or relaxed, the longer daylight hours can offer us moments to reflect upon things
and admire nature. That is what I love about summer- the color, nature in full bloom, early sunrise with my coffee. Nature can be so inspiring!

For today's poetry I will share my recent personal photos taken while on vacation. I love to be surrounded by nature!








In Quiet Moments

Breathe slowly
take in all the colors
let the wind caress your shoulders
and fill you with a knowing

This wind and sky are gently
surrounding you
holding you
providing you
with all you think you need

So when you stop to look around
and gratitude flows from some deep place
it is in that moment that you are shown the truth of your beauty
and sacredness
it is those quiet moments that change how you see yourself
and the world



More new poetry and writing update!

Hello!
Thanks for stopping by.  Hope all is well with you.  Today's poetry is inspired by what might be my next poetry book titled BELOVED.  I have been submitting my works titled JOURNEY OF A DREAM and SHY Of THE FIRE. Wish me luck!!

I hope you enjoy the following poetry.


THREAD

Love runs a thread thru a thousand memories
It lights the stars in the sky and
Fuels the morning breeze

If you listen
You can hear it humming
Whispering
Across the mountains and over the ocean
Carrying your dreams
Holding your joy

Love is the fabric and the thread that covers us
Awakening us to the beauty of who we are.

What happens when you believe... poems to encourage

Image
When someone believes in themselves
The whole world conspires
To throw galaxies of confetti
At their feet.

Did you hear that?
I just heard a whispering voice say
Be careful where you walk...




Don't forget to say I love you
To others
To yourself
To your dreams
   You know, the ones waiting in your heart
   For you to rain blessing and sunshine
   Upon them with your words.





New poetry!

Hi!

Just poetry today. Hope all is well with you! I also hope you enjoy the poems below. Thank you for sharing in my work. It means so much!



Love 

I am all the love within the stars And you are the galaxy That holds  My light

Light 
You Shine your love upon me And I reflect your light To you  This is how  We light the sky.

Moonlight 
Softly carried on the water by Moonlight scented wind The image of your face Stays with me Resides in my heart Always



Feeling energized? Getting Inspired and going for it!

Hi!

Thank you for stopping by. I am glad you are here.

How has this year been for you, so far? Wow, it is already June!

For me, it has been an emotional year - or should I say past few months.

I am finding myself in the position of asking

what do I really want to do with my life, my time, my passion?

I want to be one who offers encouragement, insight, a bit of a nudge.

I want my writing to uplift and inspire.

So, with that being said, I have only recently begun to write my next poetry book

and hold within myself the energy and inspiration to write.

I was previously doing something that taxed me beyond what I let on to others

and I had no energy left for writing, which is really my passion.

Poetry, for me, stems from an untouchable place within. Stress and trying to force it does not work.

Good news is I have been given the time to write for now and it feels so good!!

I am writing more poetry than I have in a long time and I am allowing myself

the chance to work on my dream.

If you ha…
