Resilience

April is National Poetry Month and I honour their theme of Resilience

Humans falling can fly buoyantly through the chaos

dark spaces expand casting a landing pad

we are flexible as rubber

springing back into form once the trauma has been felt

confused that we are still here

Our thoughts master patience as angels descend to pick up the pieces

our mind, body, and souls connect to the truth

memories are submerged into the ocean of forgetfulness

rapidly recovering

licking our salty wounds

A day emerges and we feel joy

light slowly flows into our hearts

as we wander weightless around the earth

Resilient

Human Strong

I may not know where I came from

or who created me

man or G-d

Irrelevant

existing in a changing reality

what I thought was right

is now wrong

I can still survive knowing this

I am not alone

you and I are

genetically linked

a species that grows

storytelling is a lost art

science prevails

creates and destroys

secrets too many secrets

I am a student

that will rise

in knowledge and strength

Together we can bring light in

reveal the darkness

the secrets

together we are Human Strong

IF

If I were a painter I would paint pictures of a garden so great your eyes would never stray. You wanting only to travel pathways leading to boundless beauty.

If I were a sculptor I would sculpt your face, it’s perfect form, delicate, soft, lively, creating and reproducing copies for companionship

If I were a teacher I would show you how the garden provides, all you ever need within your hands. The art of sowing and reaping, caring and connecting.

If I were a scientist I would connect this garden to your body, developing healthy concoctions, plant vibrations, frequencies, providing balance and harmony.

If I were a theologian I would remind you to look up and within. You are as great as the cosmos is vast. Believe in yourself, believe in something greater than you!

If I were a mother I would nurture your soul and its divinity. For my arms are always reaching, to hold you, always reminding, you were created with love.

But I am only a poet, a lost breed whose pen is my third eye and voice. Bringing insight into new ways of thinking and being. A love warrior willing to cause a stir to awaken humanity.

Gratitude lifts

You are a seed planted

nestled in the womb of earth

love energy invites you to be

safe, protected, nourished

Visualize a new great moment

like when you rise from your ignorance

look with compassion on yourself

for we were all deceived

What you see in yourself you practice in the world

love and serve with an open heart

be grateful for your life, body and the lessons you learn

It is only a short journey

Forgive yourself for all those decisions

gratitude lifts your vibration

all you have is the now moment

stand in the present

Do not fear your future
