Rebirth

Hope you all have an inspiring week, filled with love, laughter and good madness!

Echoes and Reflections

Roots IntertwinedMaybe we were trees
In our former life

Side by side
Roots deeply tangled
Branches barely touching
And when the Moon
Performed its sonata
Our leaves sang
The same melody

Lovers
Dreamers
Runaways
Found a safe haven
From our shelter

Seasons changed
People changed
Yet we were always
Growing together
In love and beauty
Side by side

Perhaps then
We decided that
We would be poets
In this life
Growing together
In love and beauty

Although
Seasons have changed
People have changed
And even we are no longer the same

Our roots still lie
Firmly
In a fertile soil

Mosaic

In all of my
Fragility
I am strong

Formed by
Fragments of
Beauty and passion
Tragedy and loss
Fear and pain
Love and hope

A compilation
A recreation
Like a mosaic

And when
You
Cast your light
Upon me
I shine

Mosaics aren’t made by trying to put the broken pieces back together as if they had never been shattered. The beauty of mosaics lies in the endless possibilities. You’re the artist of your life – create a masterpiece!

This short piece poured out of me today. It’s dedicated to my friends. Thank you for lighting up my life & helping me to shine!

When my journey
Takes me to
My final shore
What will I leave behind

Miles of memories
Fragments of beauty
Embers of hope
Or mere dust

Will I fade away
Slowly
Like a star
On the grieving sky
Or vanish
Like a dewdrop
In the warmth

My footprints
Will be washed away
By the emerging tide
Filled in
By the rushing water
But will they remember
Where I once walked

“One does not discover new lands without consenting to lose sight of the shore for a very long time”André Gide.

That’s true. And, one does not discover their self without consenting to look beyond the present. …more in a comment.
