Poems

Soul Speaking

 

Tears fall and remind me

That my Soul has a voice.

I AM listening…

My Soul wants my self-expression

It wants my light… It wants my truth

It wants my freedom.

I AM listening…

Tears reflect light.

The Soul…

Shining back at me.

Teardrops…letting go

As an ocean lets go of a wave

Then…takes it back in.

Holding it all together.

Just For today.

Calm & Connected…

 

Something has shifted

The Trees and leaves know…

I could tell by the way they rushed to meet me…

They wanted to be seen.

This song has finally found me

despite my attempts to hide…

Today I was meant to hear it

Today I was calm.

Calm and so Connected to something greater than Me…

Spiritually and Emotionally vibrating …

in the True reality.

This body didn’t matter…

I was just pure energy…

Calm and Connected.

It moved Me….and moved on.

She is a Lighthouse

She is a lighthouse

There for all who wander

Land and sea…

Heart and mind

A calming safe harbor

and compassionate ear

Emotional turbulence eased

A mother and a friend

Standing strong

Guided by Intuitive wisdom

Holding us All…

Safe and secure.

Fly

Fly…with a hawks vision

and a Warriors Heart

Companions are close…

Inner Strength is closer.

Open to communication and receive…

the Truth.

Breathing through Overwhelm

At days end…

Exhaustion lets my guard down…

It lets fear and worry rush in.

Thoughts overwhelm like crashing waves.

Emotions rise like the tide.

Breathe.

Let it all go…for now.

Morning…A NEW beginning

is coming.

BEginning and BEcoming

Candles glowing

Incense rising…

Practice Beginning

I AM BEginning.

What is BEcoming of me?   Of all of this?

Answers don’t come.

They have to be lived…

For now…I will simply

Just BE.

Internal Drishti

I have been thinking of my own internal drishti and where I am feeling attention drawn to during practice. Drishti – our focus – gaze point. Usually we think of drishti points with eyes open. We also have internal drishti as we close our eyes and attune to our third eye. We also practice internal drishti when we focus our attention to a certain body part or chakra center – we draw our attention to these areas. In my practice my eyes are closed in many poses and it allows me to connect much deeper.

Journal / Reflection questions : How does internal drishti affect your practice? Where is your attention drawn to in your practice? Does it need redirecting? For me there are practices where I am more present than others and my drishti has a lot to do with that.

Internal Drishti

With closed eyes…I practice.
My attention is drawn to my core, my chest, my center.
Looking inward

I am guided to my inner strength.

With closed eyes…I practice.
I long to get to a quieter space.
Looking inward

I slow the pace of thoughts and actions. I find my breath.

With closed eyes…I practice.
I find a world beyond my physical eyes.
Looking inward

I meet a genuine presence. My True Self.

Meeting Myself Where I Am…

Through my tired eyes
I see the journey is much longer…

Why don’t I use the map?
Is there a quicker way?

Why don’t I ask for help?
Is there an easier way?

Why don’t I want to go down that road?
What do I gain from staying on this road?

Why do I resist what I know to be true?

Isn’t that the harder way??

Meeting myself where I am
I can find the “middle way” and

I can walk on.

Thoughts on :
Third Chakra
Satya – second Yama
Resistance & Acceptance

Namaste – Kerry

Abby

She was always there
With her “welcome home wag
Offering a sock or random gift.

A counter-surfer extraordinaire
She kept us on high alert!
ALL food was under her watchful eye.

Her presence will be greatly missed.
A gentle animal spirit
Whose eyes were filled with
understanding and unconditional love.
