Starting Over

My life as I know it has died.
My past has served its purpose.
Creator is calling me to begin within.
It’s been hard to admit what’s happening.
It’s been hard to release what no longer works because I fear change.
The more I resist, the harder I struggle to breathe in peace.
The day comes when I must choose life over death.
So I let go and surrender to the unknown.
My path is unclear.
It is calling me to start over with faith, trust, and belief in Creator as my source.
It is reminding me life is an opportunity to grow at all times.
I bless my past and wave goodbye as I walk into the next chapter of my life.

Happy Day #27 of National Poetry Month!

“Sleep” is today’s poem.

Sleep

The best thing I can do is prepare my sacred trinity for a deep sleep with restorative yoga.
The kind that relaxes each part of my body.
The kind that calls my mind to surrender to the sound of each deep breath.
The kind that opens my heart to the Creator’s grace and my ears to divine wisdom.

My body signals it is tired.

Poetry Month Day #25: “Kind” Poem

Happy Day #25 of National Poetry Month!

“Kind” is today’s poem.

Kind

“Be kind to yourself,” the voice whispers.
I keep moving.
Ignoring the voice.
She whispers, “Did you hear me? Be kind to yourself.”
I stop, listen, and ask, “How?”

She answers with a recipe of kindness.
I write it down in my journal,
Be kind and slow down so you can be with yourself.
Be kind and slow down so you can hear yourself clearly.
In this space, feel what you are feeling.
Don’t glaze over it.
Think what you are thinking.
Say what needs to be said in your own words.
Reflect with kindness.
Rest with ease.
Be kind.
You are the only you have.

Happy Day #23 of National Poetry Month!

Today’s poem is entitled “Path.” It was inspired by Deepak Chopra’s wisdom quote above.

Path

Life carries me as I carry it.
I walk a path where change is constant.
Sometimes it gets messy, overwhelming, and scary.
Moments appear and offer learning opportunities that stretch me beyond my wildest imagination.
I go within to a place where I can surrender and gain guidance.
I come back to the world with greater faith and confidence.
With grace and gratitude I allow my path to unfold.

Happy Day #22 of National Poetry Month!

“Intuition” is the name of today’s poem.

“Intuition

My inner voice longs to share wisdom and guidance.
She waits patiently for me to get quiet and listen.
When I do, my life flows in divine order.
All is well.
I just have to remember to surrender.
Be still.
Open my spirit, heart, mind, eyes, and ears
Pay close attention.
And follow her direction.

Poetry Month Day #21: “Play” Poem

Happy Day #21 of National Poetry Month!

“Play” is the title of today’s poem. It is inspired by an affirmation I read on author Louise Hay’s Facebook page.

Play

Go on and be the joy that dances inside
Dress up in your favorite colors.
Enter the world seeking adventure.
Eat your favorite foods.
Watch your favorite movies.
Laugh so loud that everyone can hear.

Close your eyes and stretch out your hands.
Expect to receive the beauty that blossoms with faith when you believe.
Grab hold of the moment.
Allow your heart to hug it deeply.

Populate the earth with your smile.
Give everyone the gift of hearing your song.
Go on and sing the joy that brings happiness to your eyes.
Play with love.
Play with gratitude.
Play with silliness.
Play with freedom.
Play with an heart open.
Live from who you are from start to finish.
Play.
Play.
Play.
Be authentic.
