Finding My Way Home

From time to time

I find myself lost

Not knowing where

to turn next

Not knowing what

to do next

Not knowing who

I can trust …

I can turn to …

 

In those times

I have to find

ME…

I have to get

to know myself…

I have to decide

which way is

Home …

Or …

Look for a new one

Create a new one

Because …

I can never go back…

I can only go

FORWARD …

Always Searching

Reaching …

Looking …

Trying always

Searching always

For the right to

change the wrong

To unlock the locked

Open the closed

My deep emotions

And…

My senses lead me

to do the right thing

However …

Some wrongs will

never ever be

made right …

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.”

Searching…

Searching…

Her life has

been a constant

searching for

something unknown

 

Something at the

edge of her

consciousness…

A flicker of something

she cannot catch

just outside her

field of vision

 

Always looking…

Always reaching…

Always trying…

To make it

to that

Summit…

The Prize…

Round and round

Year after Year

Life is like a Carousel

Ups…

Downs…

Fast…

Slow…

Never ending

Always chasing

something just

out of reach

Never able to

catch and hold

the Brass Ring

the Prize…

Always searching…

wanting…

Looking for…

Something just

out of reach

Yet…

Never really there…

Moonlight…

Each night
She walks in 
Moonlight…
Searching…
 
Yet…
 
Hiding in shadows
Looking for the
Perfect stars to 
Soothe her Soul…

Dreams…

We all have them
Our own for good or bad
Joint at times
But they are
Always there…
Always with us…
 
Dreams…
 
For each of us
searching for those 
parts of ourselves…
of others…
wanted and unwanted
 
Dreams…
 
Keep us going
Keep us searching
Keep us sane – or not
Looking deep into
our inner most 
passions…
wants…
soul…
 
Do you 
      Dare
              to Dream?

Magnolia Night

Magnolia Night

Early Summer night
Soft breezes
Gentle scent of
Magnolias in the air
 
Moon hanging low
Floating in a
Milky Way mist
 
Strolling alone…
She is searching…
Always searching…
 
Never sure what 
she is looking for
Yet..
In her heart 
she will know when
it finds her
 
Could this be the time…
The time and place…
Her time and place…
 
Following the scent
 of Magnolias
She released herself
to the Night…
