΅〜 ೋღ ღೋ      〜΅

I look at you and I can see so deep inside…
Almost an invitation to come in and traverse your complexity….

΅〜 〜΅  

I see a brilliant artist….
A loving spirit….
A beautiful soul….
Burgeoning with love and adoration of life in all of its intricacies….
All of its resplendence…

΅〜 〜΅  

I see one who cherishes each moment…
One who feels pain intimately…
Who knows how destructive it could be if allowed to reign supreme….
I see you fight….beyond the daily battle…

΅〜 〜΅  

You create beauty….magical majesty….
Abstract in its completion….
Complex simplicity….
Sublime amalgamation of thought and emotion…
Of vision…
Of you….

΅〜 〜΅ 

I see you….
As we all are….
Who we could be…
Would that we possess your strength, your fortitude….

΅〜 ೋღ ღೋ     〜΅

Tell me your story….
Let me hear your words….
Else I shall have to read you….
Through your sad eyes…

΅〜 ೋღ ღೋ      〜΅

There on a sandy seashore…

Waves crashing…

Warm gentle breeze…caresses seductively…

Softly blowing…playing with my hair…

΅∼ ೋღ ღೋ     ∼΅    

I sit and stare…

Majesty of the sea…

Escaping reality…

΅∼ ೋღ ღೋ     ∼΅   

All senses heightened…

Suddenly aware of everything…and nothing…

Watching…waiting…

Sand between my toes….

Salty spray envelopes softly…enticing…gently…

΅∼ ೋღ ღೋ     ∼΅   

Tranquility…

The sea whispers…

Secrets of the ages…

Eternal treasures…

Brought ashore for me to explore…

Gifts to see, touch, discover…

Cherish…

΅∼ ೋღ ღೋ     ∼΅   

Footprints in the sand…

Trail of my journey…

Washed away…

Nevermore…

΅∼ ೋღ ღೋ     ∼΅  

Till the next tide…

When there’s even more to explore…

Evermore…

Hope's Dream

΅〜 ೋღ ღೋ      〜΅

I dream in soft golden hues of hope..
I dream the intangible becomes visceral…
I dream in shades of eternal spring…

΅ 〜 〜 ΅ 

Where everything is reborn…new and possible…
Where my heart doesn’t ache in the throes of love’s vicissitudes…
Where life is likened to a blossoming rose…
slowly opening to welcome sunshine…
Where the gentle rains wash away my tears…

΅ 〜 〜 ΅ 

I dream of kindness not bitterness…
Of hope…not despair…
Of honesty…not duplicity…
Of transparency…not hidden agendas…

΅ ೋღ  ღೋ      ΅

I dream for inspiration…
I dream for hope renewed…
I dream because I must…

     ΅∼ ೋღ  ღೋ      ∼΅

       In A Moment…

     You can laugh…

      You can cry….

          You can behold the most beautiful things…

     You can have your breath taken away…

       You can experience excruciating agony…

      You can cry tears of joy…

            You can be given devastating news..

      You can smile…

      You can create unforgettable memories…

      You can fall in love…

      You can brighten someones day…

      You can give your heart away…

      You can walk away from love…

      You can break a heart…

      You can mend a heart…

       All this and more you can do in a moment…

   ΅∼ ೋღ ღೋ     ∼΅

      Cherish every moment…

       For it’s not how much time you have…

      It’s the moments you fill it with…

Waiting For The Rain…

΅〜  ೋღ   ღೋ      〜΅    

girl in rain

΅〜  ೋღ   ღೋ      〜΅  

On the precipice of reality’s revelation….
Staring out at the majesty of the sea…
Thoughts wander aimlessly..

΅〜 〜΅ 

My life’s imprint…
Introspective…
On the cusp of inspiration…
Illusory images of illumination…

΅〜 〜΅ 

Enigmatic longing…
Destiny ever so slowly revealed…
I wish as the waves roll on oblivious of me…
I wish for epiphany…
Enlightenment…
Knowledge of Fate’s intent…

΅〜 〜΅ 

Contemplation of the ocean… timeless…mysterious…immortal…
Lost in the rhythm if its reaching to and fro…
Enchanted by its gifts which permeate all my senses…
Glimpses of future tempting me to push further…

΅〜 〜΅ 

I wait for any answer to my quest…
I wait for direction…
I wait for peace…
I wait for the rain to fall…

΅〜 〜΅

Blanket of Night…

΅〜 ೋღღೋ      〜΅ 

One Night...

〜 ೋღღೋ      〜΅ 

Lying under the blanket of night…

Stars sparkle their way through the black backdrop…

Creating illusions of images to please each soul…

~ ~

Waiting for a star to fall…

Waiting to wish my secret wish…

I stare intently…hoping…

They are oblivious of me and my desirous intention…

~ ~

Still I watch…

Still I wait…

~ ~

Longing for that one fleeting moment…

They continue their twinkling show…

~ ~

Still I wait…

Still I watch…

~ ~

Night…

Your playground…

My wishing place…

Enigma…

Each day we face similar choices depending on daily scenario’s. Recently…I have been reminded of how I was feeling a year ago and so with that I present….  ~ Enigma

΅〜  ೋღ  ღೋ      〜΅

path

΅〜  ೋღ ღೋ     〜΅

 There on a path to future lies converging trails…

One reminds me of better days long gone…

One leads to the promise of future…

  ΅∼ ೋღ ღೋ      ∼΅

I sit…think…ponder…

Why does one necessarily negate the other?

Conflicted confusion…

  ΅∼ ೋღ ღೋ      ∼΅

The future is hope, risk, love, heartbreak, having, losing…

As is life in all of its ups, downs and all arounds…

Tumultuous emotions wash over me as I wonder which path…

All the while knowing, as I always have, that life moves in one direction…

΅∼ ೋღ ღೋ      ∼΅

I cry silent hidden tears as the truth permeates me…

Time moves in one direction…

Always to the future…

Never to past…

I know this and yet…

It feels as though letting go of the past means it truly is gone…

΅∼ ೋღ ღೋ      ∼΅    

Two paths converge into one…

I know I must take the one to the future, because that is the way of life…

Always moving forward despite anyone or anything…

Time is an enigma which marches on irreverent of feeling…

Void of thought or emotion…

We choose to move with it or forever be trapped in the loneliness of the black void…

I will no longer be trapped in the void…

΅∼ ೋღ ღೋ      ∼΅    

Sweet encouraging voices beckon me to life, irregardless of the risk I know it brings…

I follow time’s path because of hope that will wash away melancholy…

I take the leap of faith..

Knowing only one thing for sure…

Time marches ever forward and now I am its companion…

One step…

Here I go…

Thank you all for an amazing….ultimately unforgettable year!

~*~

Inspiration’s Impetus….

~*~

Imagination's Impetus

~*~

Descending decadently upon me…

At times overwhelming me with insistence…

Filling me with words long forgotten in the depths of my mind…

There they dwell…waiting to be remembered…

Discovered again with joyous exuberance…

Longing to be joined to one another in a form solely mine…

Wholly me…in essence…in words…

Expression of my soul sent out into the world…

Representation of my hopes…my dreams…

Magical machinations continually moving…rearranging…

Birth of my voice in silence…

Imagination’s Impetus awakened…

Fueled by memories…experiences…

Dreams that have and have yet to come…

Their requirements are that their union be unique…

That they get to represent me…

Expressing me in ways I never could…

Until now…

They fight for their ultimate freedom…yearning to roam…to leave me…

Their departure evokes new combinations

unceasingly born and born again…

Be still…

Wait…

Listen…

Feel…

Write…

Only then can I truly be free…
