Greetings! I have some poetry for you today. I have been writing some poetry for a new book and have been enjoying it. Here are some  poems I wrote , not for my book but in my journal.  Here's to quiet time! Thinking Thinking of love the power of the universe coursing through my veins I cannot feel any differently than this than I do right now- I will face the obstacles and way too many self-inflicted blocks I let in this light take my stand for tomorrow and dream of possibilities releasing all that held me back and reaching for the stars with you by my side Difference I feel a difference coming over me, in an instant I am sure of something I never knew before; a knowing that I cannot forget breathes within me now and takes me to a place of mystery mysticism and magic. I am different changed from the inside out and it happened in an instant a moment of silence when we met on sacred ground.

Poetry Musings

Hello! Welcome to my poetry musings today. I am going to share some new poems that  I hope you will like today. First, let me say that my poetry is heartfelt and emotional. It comes from my attempt to name and internalize my feelings. I write to better understand things and I have had a year of big changes in my life. We all go through those years.  They help us grow, if nothing else. If I didn't write I am not sure what I would do to get through some things! I express my joys and sadness as well as hopes and dreams within my poetry. Below are two recent poems. How How can I know which way to go when I have to be practical logical responsible and if I go the way I want to go then I lose security and provision I see nothing inspirational about hunger at all so my question again is what do I do when my dream the path I want to take seems to have closed its doors and even the windows in my face Thankful I am thankful for this moment when I c

Support makes the world go round

Hello! Glad you are here. Thanks for spending a few minutes with me. Today I want to say that what has been on my mind lately is how much it means to me to have supportive people who encourage me on this journey. I am grateful and amazed at the encouragement and motivation offered to me by fellow authors, friends, family. Truly I feel blessed to have support to go after my dreams. Thinking about this, several things came to my mind. One, we feel empowered ourselves when we build someone up. Two, being supportive of someone involves positive energy and this energy comes back to us. Three, we ourselves will need support at some time in our lives. Those who know you support them are going to be there for you. Let's go through these points further. 1. We feel empowered ourselves when we build someone else up. This is because we are coming from a powerful place when we step outside of our small self and seek to inspire or offer comfort to another. Coming from a place of onen

Did you listen to the lyrics - a poetry expose

Today is all about poetry. I am specifically thinking of  the power behind the words, what poetry expresses. To me poetry expresses feelings, ideas and most of all the pain and joy of emotional experiences.  It is similar to a great song. We say, did you listen to the lyrics? Think about that. We are asking, " did you stop and think about what the words are saying?",  do you hear the message being expressed? Songs, like a great poem, can express what we are feeling with words that, as the saying goes, say it all. Whether the songs are upbeat or sad, nostalgic or angry, we resonate with some more than others because of what they are saying. What song do you repeatedly sing because it is so catchy or carries exactly the right sentiment? It is perfect for the moment in its emotional pull, isn't it? Consider these: "I'm here to remind you of the mess you left when you went away." "I could've had it all..." "I will always love you.&
