When Seasons Change


When seasons change,
From summer to fall,
Memories fall away.

Where once was love,
Feels melancholy and faded,
In letting go.

What I thought you were,
You are really not,
But only an illusion in my mind.

Why were you sent,
I can only guess,
To teach me a life lesson.

How will this end,
Without your presence,
Is my given blessing.

Away, away,
Into my future,
You are my distant past.

When spring arrives,
I will blossom,
Into the flower awaiting its time.

As I look back,
I waive goodbye,
On my journey forward.

As My Soul Speaks


Beyond reality is the moment of great clarity,

Awareness that every word is my lesson.

She is teaching me about myself,

And how to become the person I intend to be.

Higher and higher I soar,

Like bird in flight closer to my soul.

She is my greatest teacher,

Uncovering my projections to me.

Compassion, kindness, dignity, and respect,

These are the values to embrace, she says.

Fly, fly, higher and higher,

Do not be afraid.

I am here to show you the way,

As my soul takes flight.

In Dreams


As I move within my dream,

I see my life dwelling within.

Familiar people with unknown names,

Moving about in bygone scenes.

As if my life belongs to another,

With renewed emotions and responses.

Is this becoming awakened,

Living a resurrected life?

On this journey into the unknown,

I ponder my future.

Where is my destiny?

Who will I meet?

What is meant for me?

And how will my story end?

Breathe in the lovely air,

Breathe out my past despair.

This is  where dreams,

And reality collide.

Lunar Goddess


The Goddess radiating her brilliant magic,

Moves my soul in the night.

I watch her as she nears,

To show me my power within.

She guides me when I am bewildered,

On my path in this wounded world.

Obstacles I cannot see and hostility I cannot fend,

She is there to protect me.

Let me bow in deep gratitude,

As I know, I am forever safe in the glow of her love.

A Serpent’s Destiny


By the light of the horizon,

I shed my old serpent skin.

Shimmering in the beyond,

Lies the future awaiting me.

My past is just shadows,

Only memories no longer familiar.

Faded figures from my past no longer hurt me,

And healed wounds bring no more tears.

I find my path forward,

What seems an eternity.

It whispers to draw me near,

As my dreams lead me to this destiny.

Through self love and compassion, I am drawn here,

To a place within that is home.

Beyond the Darkness


A soul that roams the earth,

Repeating itself throughout lifetimes.

With each memory, he fails to relent,

Harm and hurt follows his shadow.

Each incarnation, I recognize him.

I run and hide, but cannot escape.

Pain and suffering follow his path,

With each interactions, I learn life lessons.

This is the soul I intend to release,

Beyond the harm and pain he unleash.

Don’t let his charm and innocence deceive,

He devours all he encounters.

This is the lifetime, I uncover the veil,

No longer fooled, no longer a victim.

I am free from the shackles of my past,

Beyond the prison of my own pain.

Let me live my life with freedom,

Allow my healing heart to rest in peace.

The Lost Maiden


From the heights of heaven,

To the depth of the sea,

She soared with angels,

And swam with dolphins.

She deemed herself a guide to lost souls,

But she was lost most of all.

Misguided she fell deep into the abyss,

Lost her focus of her own life.

As she faltered down the wrong path,

Her beloved became another,

And so her wedded too found another,

Thus ended the life she had known.

He found joy and the family he longed,

Finally, he found where he belonged.

Living in denial, she moves forward,

Telling herself, the fault lies with others.

Sadness continues, as months turn into years,

It all ends in destruction and tears.

Karma came calling to collect its debts,

Until the lost maiden learned her life lessons.

New Beginnings


Today can be the day of new beginnings,

Old feelings and stories fall away,

As they feel like stories of others.

The past seems far away,

As lotus blossoms bloom,

Rare and exotic.

The world feels lighter,

Anguish and pain fade,

While you move onto another experience.

Letting go of pain, the past, and the hurt,

Doesn’t mean letting go of those you love,

But change the lenses of how you see them.

Allow this mystery to rise within you,

Like the phoenix rising from the ashes,

To embrace the love deep within,

Loving unconditionally, selflessly, and gently,

Forever and always.

In Changing Light

tumblr_n96fwzI8YD1rnheglo1_r1_500In changing light,

As eve descends upon the earth,

My soul roams closer to my destiny,

When peace lies in my heart,

Calm serenity with still reflections.

My breath light in the cool air.

The moment is here, then it floats away,

Into the night without a goodbye.

When night falls as my mind rests,

Wondering about that moment,

To return in morning,

When I greet the light,

To warm my heart once again.
