Passion

We so often think of passion

as it applies to love of another

or our thoughts of what of

the love of another should be

But …

Honest…

True…

Real…

Burning…

Passion shows as a light

from the soul

Eyes sparkling and

a shining face when

 

someone talks about

their life …

their work …

their passion …

Be it rock climbing

or composing the next

symphony …

There is no difference

in the look and feel of

passion a person has

about the importance

of their life …

And …

Their life’s work …

Passion …

To Follow the Light

To Follow the Light

Shining through the darkness

Cutting into the woods

She saw it …

That unusual light

What was it?

Where did it lead?

Who is there?

 

All questions she

asked each time

the light presented

itself …

Yet never taking

time to answer them

 

One sleepless night

deep after midnight

she wandered into

the woods and there

it was …

shining on the path

leading her…

challenging her…

daring her…

to follow

 

Without knowing how

she arrived suddenly

there was a small

softly lit cottage in

front of her begging

her to come inside

 

Carefully, she walked

onto the small porch

and looked inside

to find a cozy fire and

welcoming room she

could not resist entering

 

On the hearth sat a

mug of honeyed tea

and a plate of sweet breads

 

Did she dare?

Was she intruding?

Who lived here and

where were they?

 

Hearing a tiny sound,

she turned and saw the

cottage’s resident …

“Come in my child,”

“I have waited for

a long time for you

to come,” stated the

tiny elderly woman.

“Sit, eat, drink,”

“Your training is

about to begin, and

your life will be

forever changed.”

The Lamp

Meant to hold
darkness at bay
 
The lamp…
stood for so
much more
 
A symbol of 
prosperity…
wealth…
 
Something almost
idolized…
worshiped…
 
Yet…
 
Held only the
true meaning for 
those with a
pure and open
Heart…

Pink Moon

A rare full Moon sight
called the Pink Moon
April’s Full Moon
 
Striking…
Stunning…
Amazing to see…
 
As I walk into
the bright light night
I feel the
Pull…
Power…
Magic…
of the 
Night…
