National Poetry Month- beyond the fog

mp900443590
when the end cannot be seen through mist and fog
have faith
trust your heart
and forge ahead
the clear path above
will make the struggles left behind
but a blur
and all that is in your sight
is beauty
and all that you have come through
is but a puff of white clouds

National Poetry Month- Gratitude

Rare 9

As I wandered down the lanes of my memory

and laughed at my mistakes

The birds chirped their songs of gratitude

so long forgotten in the tunes of man

And the trees swayed to the rhythms

of the ocean breeze

As the flowers bloomed to face the faithful sun

hidden behind the mist of foggy dreams

My soul was lifted in appreciation

for where my heart had roamed

Thank you was my song

national poetry month- beauty of you

Footsteps-mind-your-own-business-3638832-1024-768 - Version 2

 

do not let the fear

of your wants and desires

stop you

like the droplet of rain

that hurdles through the

waterless sky

to touch your cheek

and remind you of a moment

long forgotten in the warm summer night

the beauty of your perfection is

the love you bring with you wherever you go

not the love you hide from your own happiness to

travel in the footsteps of anothers path

National Poetry Month- the Promise

IMG_2464 - Version 3

I closed my eyes

to the sound of emptiness

As the rush of longing encapsulated my every cell

I breathed in the new day

The air of revived serenity, each particle reminding me

That I found love in the depths of a world

tormented by its insecurities

That I found faith in the depths of a world

broken by its empty promises

And as I lift my head to the heights of

unseen fortunes

Within me is where the

greatest gifts lay

And within the emptiness is the whisper of

a promise of what is to come

National Poetry Month- Motherhood

DSC00540 - Version 2

I press my lips gently to the soft touch of your newborn skin

All the promise of tomorrow lay in your yet uncluttered mind

Only the gentlest touch of love has filled your thoughts with their wonder

Only the kindest word has filled your heart with its love

You lay peacefully in your slumber and dream of the flight of love that has brought you here

That has laid your peaceful breath upon mine breast and filled my heart

Brimming with a fullness you will never understand

Until one day you lay

Your child upon your breast
