Following and Filling Your Heart

winter skyThis one just spilled right out of the pen in one fell swoop and even moved me after reading it back to myself, like messages from the subconscious to lift me up out of doubt and encourage me on the path.  And so I share with you now, passing the baton of courage.  xoxo


Sometimes we underestimate people
Sometimes the mind is feeble
Sometimes we are unreasonable/unreachable
And sometimes we are regal

Don’t ever look for reasons
To say your life is not in season
Or that your path is not yet seasoned
Or that your art has no reason

Every piece of art created
Is never overrated
If the heart took part in creating
And the soul was renewed in the making

Sometimes we shy away from
The very thing that could be a haven
Sometimes we hold ourselves back
For fear of failing or falling or lack

But if we open up to flying
We may find we found our pack
Get past just trying
And realize our impact

Open up the night
Let your life be inspired
Open up the lights
Set your soul on fire

Renewed and imbued
With warmth and grace infused
Dig deep in the dirt and grit
Find your worth and see where you fit
Know what you’re born to do
And find you’re living proof

If you just stop caring
Whether anyone gives a care
But continue to share like you care
And do your best to be aware
To relax into the flow
While the people come and go

Don’t think about what you’re not
And focus on what you are
And don’t you ever stop
Following and filling your heart

Seasons and Greetings

‘Tis the season to be greeting, to be merry and bright, in spite of the winter sun in hiding, or health matters fighting.
In gratitude, I share a couple of poems and a few pics to bolster hope and wellness.  Dream a brand new dream for 2015 and listen for what you truly need.


Cannot assume that winter’s bloom
Or lack thereof
Is a sign of doom or shows no love

Sleeping, dreaming flowers
Hold just as much power
As spring and summer blossoms
Full of fragrance to devour

Devote your hearts, become devout
She wrote your part, have no doubt
Divine design is ultimately profound
She hears you shine with brighter sounds



You can focus on the positive
Or dwell on the negative
Your life can be lucrative
Or be lost under a sedative

Consumed by doom and gloom
Or a light house filling the room
How do you choose to live?
What all can you give?

Time to get serious
To see where we’re steering this
