Appointed Time

All of Nature’s souls

Know their appointed time to

Blossom for their world.

Quote: “Be like water…”

​Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way around or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves.

Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.”

— Bruce Lee

Free Originality

so you think
you cannot accomplish
what Inner Compass
calls you to do
create your own path
originality intact
allow yourself to
live life anew.

Metamorphosis

annie-spratt-260413

In dusk’s stillness
Rebirth of perspective,
Her soul unfolds
Amidst scars and forgiveness
To unbosom light.
With reverence for
Necessity of both voices
United and dissonant,
She embraces
Passage into
Metamorphosis
With acceptance and love.

This Blanket

Strums of pain
Makes darkling bright
By grasp of a broad moonlight.

If one looks closely,
Total stillness under harness,
Dimlit blanket not placed to suppress.

Cleansing given from life’s worst.
Accepting shadows unintended to blind,
Instead healing injuries of heart and mind.

Without this blanket
In our challenges of time
Daily tumult calls our souls to mime.

Patience, cracks of light resume to live.
In blanket slowly they appear,
Soul’s full presence, back to stear.
