Poems

A Collection of Poetry

We have many stories to tell
Each one of them from living here on Earth
We have all walked here in others forms
We come now to remind us all how precious our Earth is
We believe it is time to stop stripping our Earth of all her natural Beauty
It is time to remember to be grateful for what Earth gives us
Returning what we no longer are using back into healthy land
So our Earth can continue to Thrive and provide for us.


Years Gone By

You cross my mine
From time to time
I wonder where you are
If you are happy
I remember your smile
Your touch
Your innocences
Every time you cross my mind
my heart feels
The connection I felt
All those Years ago
Imagine my surprise
Seeing you after all these years
My heart on awe
Of what you remember
I blush
I never knew
So afraid back then
To let anyone really in
I kept telling myself you
Were just a fling
Now I wonder
If that was true
What could we have been
If I had been free to let
You fully in my heart
I know
We did the right thing
Now I ask
Why after years hone by
Did you seek me out
And am I what you expected?


                                                                    Fully

It is time to feel.
Feel fully.
And be supported.
Time to purge the past.
Just like a belly
that’s too full & wants to
be emptied.
Time to dance with the Mother
in all her forms.
I’m ready.
Thank you for this healing.
It is time to feel fully.
Time to be vulnerable
and comforted.
Time to be the Maiden and the Crone.
It’s a time of trust.
“Trust in me” she says.
I’m ready.
Fully trusting, completely vulnerable.
Letting the emotions flow freely.
While being supported,
connected
& safe.
I’m feeling fully.
Flowing like a river.
Being the Bay,
connected to the Ocean.
Always self-healing,
self-cleansing.
Vast and open.
Mysterious.
I feel fully.
I am love.
I am gratitude.
I am healed.
Whole.
Feeling fully.
Thank you.

Friends

How blessed I am to have
Friends like you
So many times in the past
I had people I called friends
They judged me
Criticized me
Corrected me
Told me everything
That was wrong with me
From their perspective
Always in my best interest
Friends,
Real friends
Free of judgment
Accepting me for who I am
Loving me with all my infractions
Believing in me
When I lost hope
Sharing with me when
I thought I lost my light
Shining their light
Reminding me how to shine
Mine again
How blessed I am
To have friends
Like you


                                                                Good-Bye

                                                          Do you know how
                                                           wonderful I feel
                                                      after saying Good-bye
                                                                     to you                                                                                                                            and really meaning it?                                                                                                             The daunting weight
                                                            of your words
                                                      your lies off my chest
                                                    and free from my heart
                                                         If I would of only
                                                     imagined half of what
                                                               I feel now
                                                    how beautiful and free
                                                                  I feel
                                                          I would of said
                                                     Good-bye years ago
                                                               Good-bye
                                                               Good-bye
                                                               Good-bye


                                                                   Please

Please let me go
My days of believing
In you are gone
Please understand
I will always love you
Just love you differently
Now
I am so ready
For someone who
Speaks the truth
Walks his words
Someone who knows
How to really love
Me for who I am
Please accept our love
For what it was
One-sided
You taking
Me giving
I ask this one time
For you to do this for me
Please let me go
Wish me well

I let you go
Along time ago
It is now that
I finally got the
Strength to walk away
Please know I am grateful
For the gift you gave me
By only loving yourself
Freedom
For me to grow
And love myself
Enough to walk away
From a one-sided
Love affair


Pounds of Unconsciousness

A pound of anger
A pound of shame
A pound of deception and a pound of blame
Two pounds for judgements
Two for regrets
Two for sadness
And two for upsets
Three for birthdays three for
Halloween
And three
For all the good an plenties
I ate In between
Four for lollipops
Four for gum
And four for the lemonade
I mixed with my rum
Another for tears
Another for fears
And another for the battles
I’ve survived all these years
Put them together
And what do you got?
A very mixed up girl who
Eats quite a lot
Add an intention.
Add a goal.
An add a skill.
And put them in a bowl.
Stir very slowly
Round and round
And before you know it
It’s consciousness I’ve found.

Brenda Citron


Believe

Do I believe in you
Or do I believe in myself
Do I believe your words
Or do I believe your actions
My heart fights with my head
The past with the present
The stories
The lies
Once again on going
Will it ever end
So insistent
With me believing you
Yet, once again your
Behavior shows me another picture
Which should I believe
Your words or you actions
Tonight I believe in myself


Birds and Bees

How can it be
that a girl like me
Is single and free at 23
Can it be
that my love for thee
has kept me waiting
over and over for thee 33
I kick up my heels

paint the town red
a town full of flea’s
I retreat into me
Here I am at 43
honor and respect
my chosen view
somehow men still
busy bees
chasing my virginity
What will happen at 53?


The Dance Floor

Here we are again
meeting on the dance floor
How many life times
will we do our dance?
the touch
the movement
the two of us
slowly stepping gracefully
into and out of
each others lives
It seems whenever we meet
one of us is dancing with
another
We pause
remembering who we were
eyes lingering
hearts embracing
Respectfully
we move on


Why

I ask myself why
why do you say
all the right word
Words that reach deep
into the depths of my soul
Words that lack action
Why do I believe you?
Knowing who you are
why do I still long for you?
Knowing how your lies hurt me
Why do you still lie?
Good-Bye
Your lies to painful to
believe anymore
Our love based on lies
Good-Bye
Why do we worry
What is all the stress about
Does it really help us or
The ones we love to worry
So much
Do we really believe
Worry changes the out come
Of any situation
How much energy do we
Use up by worrying so much
What if we went into our hearts
And gave thanks for the
Best outcome
Whatever that may be
Believing and having faith
That it is what is best
For all involved…….
Even if it causes
Pain and sorrow
Maybe even unto ourselves
To believe in our heart
That wonderful healing will
Be the outcome
For all involved
I see more powerful then
To spend my time worrying


The promise

I promise
Please trust me
Believe me when I say….
Your eyes filled with
Intense sorrow
OverFlowing into your aura
Your heart exposed….
In this moment
I truly desire to believe you
Everything in my heart
Screams for me to trust you
Then you walk away
And the same old story
Comes flooding back to me
Do you even realize
How many promises you
Have made to me
Over the years?
Promises broken
How many more empty promises
Will you make
Employing me to believe
In you
Do you realize the pain
The heartbreak created
By your empty promises?
I Do…….


Miss Madison

Bright, beautiful Spirit
Shining your love upon all
Who walk with you
Giving so freely
Unconditionally your heart
We can all learn from thee
Breathe in your light
For yourself now
Spread your wings
Full and wide
Let your heart fill with
All the love from us mere
Mortals who have received
Your love
We breathe as one
With you
Now and always
Know our hearts are
Filled with joy for
Having been blessed to
Walk with you
Fly, fly freely
Flap your wings and fly
Releasing the form which
Holds your Spirit
We Love You


I know not who I am
for I am not who I seem.
For to know me by name
or to know me by face
is not to know Me at all.
I know not who I am
for I am no one and
I am everyone,
which are the same
and not the same.
I know not who I am
for i need not know.
For to know Myself
Would be a distraction
for the journey I am on.
I know not who I am
for one cannot know
the true self.
But searching for the true self
will always be the goal.
I know not who I am
for I am a work in progress.
And when I am finished
I will be no more
for the journey was the goal.

Mark V.
Inspired by the poem Bullah Ki Janna
by Bulleh Shah (1680 to 1758).


I Breathe

For the first time
I breathe without you
My heart fills with
love for myself
I am proud of myself
for letting go of you
I fill my garden with flowers
that make me smile
that make me happy
flowers that make my
heart sing
I Breathe
for I am filled with gratitude
I have found myself again
My heart light
and full of joy
Spring blooms with
the smell of life reborn
the flowers
colorful and succulent
Life blooming everywhere
New beginnings for myself
I rejoice


The Fool

The fool I am
forever stepping off the cliff
always believing every
word you say
The fool
How can this be?
how many more times
will I believe thee?
The fool
rushing in with my heart
patience lost
heart ever longing
for your touch
your lips
your body
your love
to make me complete
The fool
boundaries be gone
heart ripped open
I make a fool of myself
believing in you
Your power so strong
my love for you entangled
I forgive myself for the pain
I caused myself
when I believed in you
instead of myself
The fool I am

Mona Lisa Moon

During a late afternoon walk
while staring up through twilight hue
The Mona Lisa Moon almost
smiled at me as she pulled
the covers up on her bed of blue
Moon struck
I caught the invitation she sent
down from her eyes afar
To join her in the morning for
coffee and some moon talk
at her table of twinkling stars

Remembering Me – Remembering You

When I saw you
Standing there
Shimmering
In the long lost beauty
Called the echo of my gaze
Reflecting you back
To me reflecting you
I wondered
If the stars got lost
On their way
Finding the jewel of
Your eyes to land upon
When I saw you
Standing there
Firm and supple
As a willow
Hiding fire
In the roots of its water
Diamonds flowered
From your pores
And sprouted
The gifts from your imagination
When I saw you standing there
I knew
That you remembered me
Remembering you
Remembering a time
Before called now
When the flowers began
And we danced life
From a thing
Called dust

I’m too fragile for love

I never thought I would say this,
from the second I saw him there was an instant attraction, mutual attraction
We were very different, and our relationship would have been long distance for our personalities were unlike each other, yet somehow we worked
His friends turned on me, and eventually it was to the point I was to walk away
I didn’t say ‘good bye’
I didn’t say ‘stay’
it was as if I just stepped out of the light, and he didn’t come after me,
as I had chased after him months before
My actions said something,
his lack of reactions to keep me said more
I pull away to see how much he would rescue what I thought he wanted, me
Tonight I saw him out,
he found a replacement for me.
I would never of said good bye,
I had a candle of hope
Protected from the winds and rains, he would return and follow the beacon back to me he didn’t
Tonight the winds and rain won, and my candle blew out.
I called for the Goddess of Happiness tonight, no reply
I called for revenge, I called for love
I’m too fragile for love I feel,
send me love
not a man
I’m listening to ‘the power of good bye’
‘freedom comes when you learn to let go
creation comes when you learn to say no
there’s nothing left to try
there’s no place left to hide. . . .
Your heart is not open, so I must go, the sky has been broken so I must go . . . .
I yearn to say good bye’
I send you peace and love
sometimes I see you and I
on some cliff side standing tall
against the spray of the wild oceans
and mighty winds
alone and cold, a fierce army, a strong army, and defenders of all cherish able emotions, and loves.
I miss you, and tonight when walking around my neighborhood
I wished I had your door to knock on.
be well my friend
I love your spirit, and you
Jared


Heart

                                    I believed you when you said you loved me
                               I believed you when you said we would be together soon
                    I believed you when you said you had been looking for me all your life
                    I even believed you when you said no one else has ever made you feel                                                            like I make you feel
                                                       My heart aches for you
                          My love for you is more then any words could ever express
                                                     When we are together
                                                              Time stops
                                                          You felt it too…..
                                                       Now, I walk alone,
                                                 Wondering what to believe
                                                          When is soon?
                                  Did you really mean what you felt in your Heart?
                                                  Was it all lies you told me?
                                                    Can my heart ever heal?
                                                   Will I ever trust another?
                                              They say time heals all wounds
                                                  They say I will love again
                                               You are a beautiful gift to me
                                     You taught me to open my heart and trust
                                                        I am loving again
                                                   This time, I love myself
                                                         I honor myself
                                              I Embrace Love more now
                              Thank you for showing me how to Love myself again……………

I AM,
I AM You
I AM Me
I AM Everything
I AM No One and Everyone
I AM All I need to be in this moment and in every moment
And, for that,
I AM Truly Grateful
I AM,
I AM Love
I AM Forgiveness
I AM Compassion
I AM all of these
I AM
All I need to be in this moment
and in every moment
And, for that,
I AM Truly Grateful

It’s Time!

It’s time to stop blaming others
for all of my mistakes
and stop with all these childrens games
It’s time to accept my fate
It’s time to finally realize
just what can be achieved
and make become reality
once upon a time was perceived
No time for luck, making wishes,
horseshoes, or four leaf clovers
for I must go inside and leave my friends
cause playtime is finally over
It’s time to put that world behind
It’s time for him to die
and be reborn and sprout my wings
It’s time for me to fly!

                                                        Mike, of Las Vegas

There is no death only birth, and birth and birth
Consider the trees
that allow the birds to perch and fly away
without calling them back
If your heart can be like a tree
you will be close to the way
when the Multitude laughs at you
you are blessed
I depart as air
I shake my white locks
at the runaway sun
I bequeath myself to the dirt
to grow from the grass
I love
If you want me again
look for me under your boot soles
you will hardly know who I am
or what I mean
but I shall be good
health to you never the less
Missing me one place
search another
I stop somewhere waiting for you….


It is in
discovering
and accepting yourself
as you are
with all of your
insanity,
vulnerability,
fears and desires
where your heart can open
and you find freedom.
When you are in complete
honesty with yourself
in how you are in this moment
without judgment,
without manipulation,
without the need
to defend
or justify yourself,
you find that
you exist beyond it
as peace itself,
as love itself
and there is no need
to strive to be
the way you think
you should be
any longer.

Are we real

I feel your hand as it gently touches
the small of my back,
I believe
there is no real love
It’s all fairy tales
Under a starlit night
You asked to kiss me
That first kiss………………
Your blue eyes reach into the
Depths of my soul
I can’t breath
I feel you
You fill my thoughts
body and soul
How can this be
Your smile
Your touch
Your kiss……
You touch the core of my soul
I am yours

Goddess Claire


Love

Scared, Afraid
so much hurt
I look deep into my soul
The Wounds
The heartache
the losses
I continue deeper
into the darkness beyond
pain and sorrow
I find laughter, Happiness
excitement, pure love
passion, fireworks
my soul lighting up the universe
I honor love
I honor thyself
What a beautiful Gift………
Love

May the Goddess of Love be with you
Goddess Claire


No one falls in love by choice,
it is by CHANCE.
No one stays in love by chance,
it is by WORK.
And no one falls out of love by chance,
it is by CHOICE


WINTER SOLSTICE GIFTS

Great white sound,
color of crystalline snow,
echoes in the souls ear,
calling those who might,
into this darkest night.
Silent forest.
Frozen earth.
Deep mystery.
Enter the cave of Winter’s embrace.
If you will allow it, she can take your hurried ,
too busy mind and body and lay down
in her secret chamber.
Her meteorite stove and the heat of stars will warm your spirit bones
as you at last surrender
into the ringing silence.
Celebrate such fertile darkness!
Worn creases will melt away.
Divine revelations will offer true and lasting gifts.
All that you have learned,
from past seasons turned,
shine as essence on a full moon platter,
each wisdom pearl glistening and wrapped in red, green, and gold.
Open eternal presents in your moment of repose
Prepare for the sun to rise in you at dawn.

G . Star, December 2002

Releasing

With the light breeze blowing across my face, I know it does not judge me.
I feel and observe the sun’s warm rays coating the Emerald green leaves of nature, and the dew drops sprawl glistening ever so gentley with a dash of innocense.
Not only is my body warmed, my soul is warmed to its core. My mind begins to clear intensely! Every breathe I take, I let another part of the negativity lingering inside of me go.
Letting it fly free, I watch it soar high above, until I see it disappear, not to bother me again

Rachel Garnick


When I brought you into being I gave you Inspiration…
Inspiration to embrace the Sacred Flow of Life,
Inspiration to love,
Inspiration to care,
Inspiration to forgive,
Inspiration to take care of each other.
Inspiration has since taken on new and different dimensions of understanding in the human experience since you were birthed into the cosmos.
Some are beneficial, others are not.
Endeavor to become aware of when you cross the line from Inspiration into excitement, and you shall expand your potential for experiencing the original Inspirations I breathed into your soul in the beginning.

LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE

It doesn’t really matter what you’ve ever done,
or not done.
It doesn’t make any difference
how many times you’ve deceived yourself or others.
It doesn’t make any difference how many
cheap verbal, intellectual, and mental imitations
you’ve sold out for.
It doesn’t make any difference how many times
you’ve used it, lied about it, betrayed it,
pretended it, or pretended it didn’t exist.
It doesn’t make any difference how many times you’ve lost it.
The only thing that makes any difference
is whether you have the honesty and the humility,
whether you’re willing to be vulnerable enough,
this very moment, to find out what love is.
And when you discover the vast and endless bliss of it,
whether you are willing to be destroyed by it,
whether you are willing to disappear into it now,
and to disappear into it forever.
Be honest with yourself:
Is there really something else you’d rather do?
As much as we’d like to think so,
we can’t really “have love”.
Simply because it is much bigger than whatever we imagine
ourselves and our lives to be,
All we can do is immerse ourselves in it,
drown in it,
abandon ourselves for it.
For in the end we don’t really exist.
There is only love.
Why not let this be the end?
Let it transform everything.
If your surrender is pure,
and complete,
it will change everything immediately.
No longer will the aches of the body
nor the fears and sorrows of the mind trouble you.
For the body and the mind will be in service to the heart,
which will liberate all of your demons.

Realizing I’m whole

I left you because I thought you broke me….
I realize… I broke myself.
I was angry because I thought you held me back…
I realize I held myself back…
I hated you because you weren’t what I wanted you to be…
I realize I hated myself…
I wanted you because I thought you would make me whole…
I realize I am whole by myself…

Dreams are part of our heart and soul
Our dreams go to the depths of our thoughts,
Wants, and needs to fulfill our destiny.
In order to fulfill our destiny we must
fulfill our dreams……….
