deep down

pain and trauma dwell within trees
just like they do

in you and me, a casual
acquaintance

made from the threads of the breeze

Can you see that we’ve always been, and will always be
part of the same stream?

then, why, I wonder, do we treat nature
differently

estranged and placated
we push away connections

deemed unnecessary

only they are, in fact
a comisc part

of a grand narrative, the seen and unseen
and everything

deep down

we believe ourselves to be

indigo aspect

green, purple, and blue,
they all remind me of something
new

clouds hanging behind the sun,
while the hunter rises
to the tops of the crisp autumn
morn

a cascading effect —
hope

lingers on my breath,
while present is this indigo
aspect

combined with lavender,
an aura coming out from behind
the moon

they are all products of the love
living inside of me
and you

let compassion soar…

a candlelight vigil, dispelling the darkness, in times
crucial, heart and hearth roam free, as we
settle into the
nature of
our

persistence, understanding more, let compassion soar
into the unknown, as we prepare for
another year
bestowed

we know not
what
comes,
yet faith can
guide us from

the shadows,
and into
the

glory of each moment, taking the time to smell
the flowers, and feel the breeze caress
our hearts gently

as we unleash the power of love from the tips
of our fingers, to the tops of
every tower, for

it is in
this
insistence,
we carry love forward

to assist,
in our collective existence….

In response to the WDYS #114 prompt from Keep it Alive, by Sadje.

Wishing you all a very Happy New Year!

conjure up love, wildly…

fingers trace the landscape, of a love once
beloved, just as the tree limbs speak
to me, of the dream
living inside
the breeze,
so
does

the gloom, remind me of lessons learned, from
the myriad pushes, and pulls,
orbiting around
the
suns’
moon…

it’s as if the flowers were speaking to ancient
lands, bestowing their kindness
within, of the time,
sands

as
they continue to focus on our hearts, showing us
how to conjure up love, wildly,
while allowing our
souls
to
ignite nightly…
