I will meet you between Today and Tomorrow…

I was birthed into existence with a breath of innocence….

I lay in your arms absorbing the world around me…

Without words I communicate to you about love….

I experience everything around me with joy and wonder…

I welcome you to participate asking for nothing in return…

Letting go of expectations and preconceived ideas about Life…

When my tiny hand touches you it is the Universe saying hello…

I have everything inside of me that you have forgotten…

I have come to remind you of beauty and grace…

My tiny soul is an echo to your soul connecting us…

Soon my life will edge into tomorrow taking on  the worlds beliefs…

Cherish this moment I have with you NOW listen to your heart…

I am the wisdom of ages revisiting this space as a gift…

Learn from me as your heart beats against mine…

I flutter against your chest like a little bird…

Trapped in this tiny body but free of fear and doubt…

Capture these precious moments and dance around them with an agile step. 

I believed a lie about you and I believed a lie 

about myself…

My thoughts are like a lost child, angry, frustrated and

confused…

I suffer not ever questioning my mind attacking others

 with false beliefs…

If I believe it I have to live out of it even when I

try and try to be positive…

What I feel inside drives me to act out and

It rules me, and I pretend and I 

hate myself…

It is violence within and I want to begin to give 

the Truth a chance, your truth…

I want to clear my mind and feel what my unkind

words feel like inside me…

I want to look at my thoughts knowing as I call you

uncaring, in that moment I am uncaring…

It hurts me until I find the strength to love you

 because I care….

The guilt and shame I carry are ancient ways of

dealing with reality and they don’t work…

I haven’t known how to question my mind

until I worked with it and changed my

world…

I have become a kinder, loving human and

I found peace. 

Voices following the vibration of a chant

words, unusual lyrics from the past

a haunting sound that sends out vibrations of energy

I am absorbed by it, captured by its melody

I close my  eyes, sight is an obstruction to the mind

I repeat each verse connected to everyone around me

poets bow to this ancient rhythm feeling the emotion

understanding the language which is foreign to the tongue

an echo begins to push against me glancing off the walls

I follow that echo of sound within me

I am part of it there is no separation

It had captured my soul and I am melding into the universal 

vibration of Sound.

If I had the courage to love myself then I would balance between delight and amazement! If confidence was my foundation I could feel faith around me like gravity to the Truth! If I can take blame and fade that mantra to a whisper then I stand firm in responsibility and welcome choice! If  I don’t define myself by what I do for a living then I can present a true authentic expression of my compassionate nature! If I believed that I am immersed in the magnificent presence of God at all times, then I could move gracefully in the dance of Life! If  I gave up the need to crumble against the wall and find strength to carry myself to the other side of that wall, then I could see the fragile beauty of my humanness! If I could resist leaving the places where the world breaks my heart then I could reach inside of myself and experience wholeness and my feet would carry me lightly!  IF…

Thought of the Day

As dawn breathes its first breath of the day, 

I awaken. My senses become alive as beginning

sounds filter through the open window.

There is an ineffable joy bubbling within me as my

heart opens to receive the gift of another day.

I turn inward embracing the sacredness of the morning.

It calls me home.

I begin to feel a deep sense of  my connectedness

with all life. I allow myself to be an open conduit through

which good flows with ease. I realize that union with ALL

means being in integrity with all things and it starts

in the center of my own soul. 

There are times when I feel like hiding out remove myself from the crowd and blend into the surroundings. I entered my church Sunday in the cloak of quiet solitude. Welcoming a few embraces and exchanging polite smiles I escaped upstairs to the balcony. Silence greeted me with a warm hug. I was alone as I settled into my seat. I leaned forward absorbing the pre-service music. Moments carried me on the melody as I leaned into it. Then a voice spoke softly, a poem of remembrance to my ears. I brought a smile to my face as I listened to words that I had recorded years before. My friend Neil was manning the sound booth that morning and he gifted me with a memory that felt like coming home.  It was background music that echoed with my voice as people settled into their seats, but to me it was a once in a life time experience. I was brought back to the day that Eddie Watkins Jr. invited me to record on his CD.  I was enthralled to have shared the experience with an amazing talent. It was joyful and something I will never forget. The song was “Flow” and my words were my own and he allowed me to shine. Peace settled within me and I felt blessed and grateful to Eddie and Neil for presenting me with an isolated moment of greatness. 

THE CONVERSATION

FORGIVE  ME!

YOUR WORDS HAVE NO MEANING…

ALL I HEAR ARE THE THOUGHTS WITHIN MY MIND!

SELF-ABSORBED I CAN ONLY LISTEN TO MY OWN PAIN.

FORGIVE ME!

YOUR VOICE SPEAKS INTO THE ROOM BUT MY EARS ARE

DEAF TO YOUR EXPLANATION…

I  ONLY HEAR THE THUNDERING OF MY HEART BEATS!

FEAR ENFOLDS ME IN CHAINS THAT TIGHTEN WITH

EACH WORD SPOKEN!

THIS IS NOT A CONVERSATION, I SHIELD MYSELF FROM

THE ROLE I PLAY IN THIS FARCE.

THERE IS NO LOYALTY BINDING THESE SENTENCES  TOGETHER!

FORGIVE ME!

I AM AFRAID, I NO LONGER FEEL YOUR LOVE

DID IT EVER EXIST BETWEEN US, WAS I MISTAKEN…

  1. MY LIFE IS SCARRED BY YOUR TONE I CANNOT TAKE

IN ONE MORE MOMENT…

I AM THE VICTIM NOW EVEN IN THE RE-TELLING

YOU HAVE DEFILED MY EXISTENCE BY YOUR STORY

REQUESTING MY UNDERSTANDING!

FORGIVE ME!

I LIVE MY LIFE FOR ME, THIS IS NOT A CONVERSATION…

I REFUSE TO PARTAKE OF THIS CONFUSION…

THERE IS NOTHING TO BE SAID, SILENCE FILLS ME

AND I CAN HARDLY BREATHE.

 FORGIVE ME!

THERE IS ONLY DISTANCE BETWEEN US NOW

CALLING IT SPACE…

FORGIVE ME!
