Under Wing

Mother duck sits
So proud and strong
Watching her ducklings
Grow each day
Awaiting the day they fly away

For now her wee ones
Stay under wing
Their tiny sounds
She loves them to sing

Fresh Starts to Unexplored Paths


New day month to start fresh
New day to truly explore
Explore unchartered paths
Paths that hold new adventurous ways
Ways to grow through each winding road
Ways for each to test their strength
Strength that comes from surviving falls
Strength of knowing who we are inside
Inside our souls lies the hidden key
Inside our hearts we carry the light
Light that shines when intentions are pure
Light that can see us through the darkness
Darkness can grab a hold so tight
Darkness blurs our days and nights
Nights where loneliness eats at the core
Nights that leave us praying for warmth
Warmth from a simple human touch
Warmth of a loving embrace
Embrace from arms strong and true
Embrace that radiates the purest love
Love we all secretly long for
Love that carries us through rocky roads
Roads we travel alone at times
Roads unmarked and unknown
Unknown the path which yet to travel
Unknown what each new day may bring
Bring on the obstacles to test our will
Bring challenges that test our resilience
Resilience that comes from hidden courage
Resilience that is tucked safely away
Away the doubts that used to plague
Away the fear to travel new paths
Paths we walk proudly as we explore
Paths that show us the power within
Within each of us the answer
Answer that speaks to us every day
Answer that says “fear not, you know the way”

Brand New Adventures

Today I decided that it was time to swallow my fears and insecurities and put my words in a publishing format.  It was an interesting adventure to be able to pick the selected poems for a small collection of poetry that had some meaning to me.

It was especially powerful to put some very personal poetry in the collection – ones that I have not even shared on my blog.  Funny thing is that I am not even sure as to why I shared the poems on the collection – something just said “It is time!”.  I swallowed the emotions and decided that I had to follow the direction I was lead to.

Right now, it is in review status and I can feel weird “butterflies” take a hold of my stomach and do magical dances inside me.  I am very excited, nervous and scared to have shared my words in an actual published poetry format, even if just in kindle format..

I guess baby steps is better than no steps and I have to walk instead of just trying to fly.

But, the true reason for writing this post is to give a shout and thank you to all whom have encouraged me, supported me and listened to my poetry with an open heart.

I would also like to give a giant hug and thank you to David M. Green for the publishing information!! You helped me reach a small part of my dream..

God Bless Everyone.. Please look for my poetry book on the kindle library “Wings of Hope”.


Love letter

I write this letter for my true love
In hopes to express how I feel
In your arms I know I am safe
Your eyes show me a future of joy
Your kiss sends sparks up my spine
Being bodily entangled with you is devine

Where you go is where I want to be
Your love and support has set the caged bird free

Thank you for all that you do
Without you by my side
I could not make it through

Time to See Finally

Time has come to move on now
Time for healing has finally come here
Here I stand at the angels mercy
Here I pray to God for my heart to be open

Open to finally receive full joy
Open to love myself completely for once
Once I knew exactly where I stand
Once my heart and soul beamed with joy

Joy of experiencing life’s majesty
Joy of watching all mysteries unfolding
Unfolding delicately like grandmother’s quilt
Unfolding like a mother’s tender embraces

Embraces that are filled with love
Embraces that come from all types of family
Family ties that bind us together
Family that is a woven tapestry to handle with care

Care shared as wounded hearts alike
Care that shows lost souls the sacred way
Way to finding peace and tranquility
Way to be finally set free

Free to love open heartedly
Free to be ourselves as true and authentic spirits
Spirits surround us that guide us to safety
Spirits when asked protect us from emotional pain

Pain that is buried deep in our inner core
Pain that lingers from pasts lives carried through time
Time alone can heal wounds that have scarred the soul
Time releases us from our painful pasts

Pasts that we wish to forget finally
Pasts that have shaped us to be who we are today
Today i look back along the broken road i treaded
Today i say thank you to those on that path

Path of pain it used to be long ago
Path of self discovery is what I now choose to see
See the strength I have gained from surviving the fall
See that I am still a beautiful soul after all

Writing exercise #1

Solemn looking
She drags her belongings
As she stumbles around

Life has beaten her down
So much loss and pain
Her life forever changed now

People watch her walk by and snicker
Words of hate that she pretends not to hear
Grateful they can’t see the tears

No one knows what she has seen
Not one has stopped to ask her why
She could not even begin to explain

Society has labelled her insane
Cast her aside to wither away alone
She has lost everything even her home
