Quiet Places

Here in the quiet places where sleep brings respite and peace I am lost in your arms Healing found in your embraces calms a troubled mind as worries cease Here in the quiet places Must be spells and magic charms this power to soften and strengthen in a space where sleep brings respite and peace And when morning comes, when my eyes meet yours I … Continue reading Quiet Places

I’ve ideas but the fog wanders inside, and whatever I try, I cannot define these thoughts; it’s as if my wings are shorn, clipped from flight. I’m a bluebird singing her harmonious tune, while… Continue reading Three Line Tales: Fiction – Blips #amwritingfiction #3LineTales

Rescue

Doubt lives in corners between apricots and asters and chipped china dishes beneath old blankets worn with time and continued use   He’s timid, cautious and just a bit weary Starved for affection yet longing to trust a gentle hand a soothing voice   And if he could speak, if he could share his tale of woe, living in a world too cold, he might … Continue reading Rescue

Community

Both a blessing and a curse these lives we lead… knowing rules are not meant to be broken, only bent as unintended forces apply just enough heat to make them pliable   And as we journey across time and space and experiences, it becomes inevitable, this drive to pause and reflect, knowing the next rest stop may forever be out of reach   Such is … Continue reading Community

Courage

It begins in the usual places borne of winds skirting between totems and pillars and prayer that breath of belonging once lost and twice found rising from stars collapsing in the night sky   that urge to move forward counting steps taken even after the fall   when gravitas redefines purpose and a new way is revealed she finds a way   This is courage … Continue reading Courage

Complacency

Composure, that veil I wear to overcompensate these fears migrating between heart and soul pausing just long enough to linger beneath these words I write and write again as I battle feelings creeping, taunting, challenging endlessly as the final product seems never enough, never quite right ⸺ crisp is the page as I draw a deep breath and begin yet again photo: Pixabay prompt: Go … Continue reading Complacency

Renewal

Arcs of lightning slash the night sky bright flashes bring the storm into view cascading rains wash the air delicately caressing spirits of renewal in even those stubbornly clinging to trauma forged in enmity and loss gorged on the energy that created this tempest harnessing that power until it all breaks free, breaks free just as the mournful began to lose hope knighted and anointed … Continue reading Renewal

Learning Patience

Light shines through darkness A beam of hope revealed like smoke on the water   Some say if I wait if I stop searching, seeking I might find true peace   So I surrender today’s troubles and worries What will be will be         photo: #PoetryPotion prompts: #GoDogGoCafe, #PoetryPotion, WD Wednesday Prompt, #Deedster Poetry Prompt 14, #Heeding Haiku with Chèvrefeuille- MindlovesMisery’sMenagerie   … Continue reading Learning Patience

Secrets

Kept secrets linger — caught somewhere in a spiritual realm where quiet rain falls from dusty skies and the thin veil of faith shudders The urge to reveal truth beckons, a burning need that calls with a longing, lilting song crashing like waves washing across the lake, speckled and brilliant Loyalty and repercussion blend until the siren is silenced and sunlight falls across the rippled … Continue reading Secrets

Capturing Hope

Once I climbed the walls of a canyon just to release my voice beneath a sky tinged with red velvet and rubies it echoed hollow and flat before returning to fill spaces and cracks and indigence replacing thoughts of emboldened bitterness The Milky Way created calligraphy in the dark and I captured my tears in a cup before offering up the distress I was bound … Continue reading Capturing Hope

Mother’s Pride

Smiles and a promise back when time moved slowly… delicious in daily tasks satisfying in simplicity Sometimes we’d sleep on the porch lit with candles and let the ocean breeze wash away our troubles Single-handed focus on dreams meant for a life we had planned, not knowing where our path would lead, back when the future was yet reimagined Somehow we made it through twists … Continue reading Mother’s Pride

On Loss, Again

Sometimes below the tears that fall gently like the summer rain resolve falters and that brave front weighs too heavy Somehow among the rack and ruin you find the courage to fall into the unknown and release the desperation Grief is like that States of emergency muddled with stress and too many decisions disappear or at least rearrange and those hands that you’ve clenched and … Continue reading On Loss, Again
