152 stuck

There is nothing quieter
A dream caught in limbo

There is nothing smaller
Genius unexpressed

In layers of
Self doubt

Let me shine
in your limitless esteem

150 survival

I choose to
the clouds of change
that gather on the horizon

The storm they herald
will break
the stubborn bough
will weather
even the most resistant rock

but the reed that yields
will bend and quake
and return whole
to a world made strange

149 tunnel vision

Caught up in the flow of life
I choose to see what is
And not
What my Ego
Would distract me with

148 twice-born

I fill my shell.
I conform to it's 
Secure curve and thrive.
I test shell-boundaries:
And in a struggle of
Confusion and fear,
I am
And I realise that
I broke what I was.

And that
The end of what I was
The beginning
Who I 
Am destined
To become.

147 gender

Precious DNA
Carefully divided and then shared

Tenuous survival
Moulded in 
Honed skill and defined role

Mirror of the
Of duality

How do I know me
Seeing the opposite
Of myself
In you?

146 mind-forest

Thoughts, ideas
Escape their 
Carefully cultivated beds

To my alarm
I discover
Not a garden
But a forest

Dark, wild
Filled with
Foggy copses
And the occasional 
Of bright, clear

145 portal 02

No matter how
Hopeless or
I feel,
There, in divine perfection,
A door
Stands open.
Waiting for me
To see and believe.

144 home

luminous drop 
in the vast darkness of the cosmic ocean
Is where I choose to test
The boundaries of my consciousness

The graceful curve of her horizon
Shapes this nexus
Of my reality

A coming together
Of mind and matter

143 desert beauty

even the most desolate 
natural spaces
on our mother-earth
ache with life and light

the beautiful secrets they harbour
are revealed
to the true seeker

142 mother-love 06

my little one

let me shelter you
from the storms of life

let me offer myself
as your shield and defense

and then

when you are grown
let me allow you to stand
on your own

141 soul-food

your words
my soul

you write on my spirit-house walls
they echo your thousand voices

your whispers 
my mind

prejudice, passion, presumption

my task is to hear the stories
and see
for myself
generosity, grace, bravery

140 portal 01

a new way of seeing

it invites me
to step
into a new reality

a new way of being

it only asks of  me
to give up
everything I once believed

139 defense

the need
to protect myself
is carved deep in my psyche

thorny defensiveness
bitter aggression
acrimonious tears

from my skin

138 pathways 01

To know myself
is to explore
the deepest, darkest
of my soul

This is my journey:
to fearlessly embrace the shadows
to joyously celebrate the light

137 design

the genius of Nature
lies not in her diversity
but in how
her Design
always runs true to itself

with sublime
she crafts
leaf, feather and fur

each unique
and yet
each holds
to its innate architecture

To nurture our young
Is coded in our genes

To love them
Is written on our soul

135 jewel

She sits on the velvet of the black void
A gem of incomparable beauty

Delicately fragile
Incomprehensibly resiliant

A gem of inestimable value
She lights the heavens in cloud kissed splendour

134 opportunity

The immensity of space and time
Rolls across endless paths
Limitless abundance
Lies disregarded at our feet

Where to go?
What to do?

There is sacred wisdom
In taking just

133 random moments

Distilled perfection
Imprinted on my senses

No rhyme or reason to remember
Impossible to forget

That tone, that note,
That whisper of passion

That colour, that hue,
That sublime reflection

That fragrance, that perfume,
That breath of inspiration

That touch, that taste,
That kiss of sweet possession
