Painful Truths

Painful Truths

There are breakthroughs.
The learning of lessons.
I'm learning mine and enjoying the journey.
Cruel people are hard to take.
You cannot avoid it sometimes.
It's in your face.
No matter how much love,
it can manifest in each of our lives.
Life humbles us.
No one gets out alive.
Being gentle and gracious is my answer.
Being understood is a blessing,
but there's no guarantee.
Give to those you love and let them be.
Doing time here on Earth.
I don't want mine to be 'hard time'.
Sing out and let go.

Love Through This



Love Through This

All signs point to Spring.
Although predictions call for flurries,
I tend to think the tide has turned.
For me too.
The ocean was offered my last tear.
Continual surrender and vigilant prayer
lift me through the quagmire.
I recognize the pattern and break free.
All of it done lovingly.

Raven Croaks



Raven Croaks


I listen to the birds this morning.
The Raven tells me where to go.
Snow blankets the landscape.
Facing up to the work is daunting.
Moving on with my life is challenging.
I take responsibility for my actions.
Feeling strong in my convictions.
Knowing that it is all about the love.
