Destiny Unfurled

***

Where once we stumbled naturally,
We now stand proud and tall.
Life beat us down, took our pride,
Yet now we’ll take that fall.

For journey’s end is not in sight,
Destination far,
As pathway’s passage, moments lived,
Prepare for next step’s star.

Flowing through the gates of life,
Being as before,
It matters not in mind or soul,
For from the body tore

Differences between then and now,
Not seen nor felt nor heard,
But soulful touches, deeper strokes,
Destiny unfurled.

Finding My Way

Finding My Way - July 18 2016

****

I found myself in times gone by,
Sinking low then rising high,
Riding waves, some low, some steep,
Floating tides, experiences deep,
Taken to the fullest seen,
My life’s perspective, clear and clean,
Then clouded by bright thoughts around,
Of others perceptions, circling sounds,
Losing grip on my own path,
Led astray by thoughts and tasks,
Other people’s sense, idea,
Of my perception, why I’m here.

Taking breath and holding course,
Now finding my way back to source.

April Showers – NaPoWriMo 2016 – Day 2 (not to prompt)

****

April springs through salty showers,
Dams March’s drought, destroys the flowers,
Cold seeps through in every vein,
Chaucer speaks in opposites again,
Let flow go, beware of speed,
As veggies die and go to seed,
Wonder not this time of year,
For seasons change with nary a tear,
Grateful for the chance we get,
To spin the wheel with no regret,
Keeping to the straight and narrow,
Accepting freeze through bone and marrow,
Happy to be here at all,
Shoulders back, standing tall,
Distance not a space to go,
As life goes by, now fast, now slow.

Spiritual Paths

hubble2

Spirits flew to God knows where
Chances given, life to share
Given again the second chance
Fulfill the promise, dance the dance
Find within the inner line
Hold on tight do not define
The reason for the very soul
Its pathway and the way to go
Where few have followed, few have gone
Feel the light so brightly shone
Walk the path though oft untread
Carry on through fear and dread
Drift through curtains one by one
Falling into hearts unsung
Feeling life, the ebb and flow
Moving onward, upwards go
Step into the other world
Where life begins and ends unheard
