Happy Friday! Happy Early Valentine’s Day!  Happy Love Day Every Day!

I thought you might like to read a poem about love from my new book That Which Awakens Me: A Creative Woman’s Poetic Memoir of Self-Discovery (available on Amazon.com –  http://tiny.cc/7uFsg).  See below.  I have also included a video of me reading the poem. Let me know what you think of the poem.

What does love mean to you?

Enjoy your day and weekend!

Peace, Creativity, Compassion, and Gratitude for love in all of its beauty,


Excerpt from That Which Awakens Me

The Word

In the beginning was the word.
And the word was a seed called a thought rooted in Spirit.

In the beginning was the word.
And the word that we were given from Spirit was choice.

In the beginning was the word.
And the words that we choose each moment create energy,
meaning, and power in how we experience ourselves, each
other, and the world around us.

As we think and speak, we become a vessel of spiritual,
emotional, physical, silent, verbal, and written expression.

Our thoughts and words have lives of their own.

They tell our life stories out loud.

They stamp the universe with our vibratory signature.

Our vibration finds its way into the universe and dances to the
beat of beautiful music or noisy disturbance.

If we are mindful and aware, we can choose to allow our
vibration to create love, peace, light, beauty, joy, healing,
happiness, laughter, and abundance.

If we are unconscious or ego-tripping, we run the risk of
making a choice that will add more emotional, spiritual, and
physical violence in the universe.

The question we must ask is: what do we want the beginning
of each moment to look and feel like?

My answer is L-O-V-E.

  1. The first time I read the poem I was lost around the middle of the poem.

    The second time I read it I felt your vibes. Please tell folks to at least read it a second time to feel your spirit come to life.

    Great Poem!
    One Love
