Receive and Own

Whimsical raindrops,
fall upon her head,
ignite dreams that pop,
feed thoughts that were dead.

Takes hold of her soul,
melts the hardened mold.
Sheds light on the old,
exceeds with control.

Opens mind apart,
so she can receive.
Deciphering hearts,
are hard to deceive.

Quenches dire thirst,
from cold fears and worries.
Warm amber lights burst,
to create glories.

Subconscious is free,
shadows stand in place.
Angelic song keys,
fill abyss with grace.

Spirit protected,
with pure divine love.
on land and above.

I ask for source to be my guide,
and vanquish any faults it finds.
Shield my heart from indifference,
and offer me deliverance.

Protect me from, just giving up,
so I can fill all empty cups.
I always want to sense and care,
stand firm for what I feel is fair.

Walk through this path with open eyes,
not blind myself with selfish pride.
I do not want to eat alone,
and do not want a heart of stone.

Please show me how to turn my cheek,
and coat the words I dare to speak.
Allow my claws to scratch good luck,
so I bring ease where sadness struck.

Empty, alone, insufficient,
is not the way my story ends.
My light-filled soul always comes through,
evicting flaws, building me new.

Grant me strength from lessons learned,
compassion shared will be returned.
Igniting love, to watch it grow,
then set it free, follow its flow.

Grab a chair,
let’s have a talk,
confront my ego
one on one.

It grabs a smoke
asks for a drink,
then stared at me
eyes did not blink.

I looked right back
straight in the eye,
then smiled so bright
disarmed all fights.

“What do you want?”
Ego’s first words,
so strong and bold
self held control.

I said with ease,
“Let’s call a truce,
let’s work as one,
share balanced views.
I know you’re scared
way deep inside,
both fear and grief
make self-doubt ​hide.
You protect me,
supply my pride,
yet I’m your key
and purest guide.”

Ego replies,
so slick and sly,
” You’re my ally,
do not judge me,
within my eyes
lives all you see.
You’re in my chest,
speaking my truth,
giving me rest,
easing my blues.
You’re in my smile
and in my charm,
you give me warmth
keep me from harm.”

A blurry mirror
then showed me,
the ego side
I failed to see.

To accept it
set us both free,
to love ourselves
through all degrees.

United to find harmony
and figure out how to agree.
We slowly built camaraderie
resolving conflicts peacefully.

Knowing our capabilities,
we partnered up infinitely.

Loving ourselves entirely,
helps us spread more love outwardly.

See through a masked soul,
time stops, a new path begins.
All within a blink.

Look past appearance.
Flesh, bones, blood, brain are human.
Unique heart, thoughts, soul.

Fills eager hearts with pure hope.
Awesome wonder.

Under One Sky

Between the lines, a sacred place,
while living in a spinning maze.
One world that floats without a base,
another formed by time and space.

Living in two worlds intertwined,
one is determined and defined,
the other not all eyes can find,
but still exists and flows divine.

Living in two worlds at one time,
without a clue, reason, or rhyme.
Where strong instinct push every climb,
a sense of wholeness feels sublime.

Living in two worlds is a lot,
both carry with a distinct plot,
to untie one creates a knot,
so bitter cold or scolding hot.

Living in two worlds as they merge,
aware that positive will serge,
one place where negative thoughts purge,
so hearts and souls meet and converge.

Within one world it feels the same,
the dreams hearts bury, feed the flame.
Stand clear to focus on the aim,
hold true felt wishes, then reclaim.

Enter a place of unknowns,
unknown spaces create growth,
growth can form a sacred zone,
zones that embrace sincere oaths.

Oaths that whisper in my ears,
ears that listen as they clear,
clear blurred eyes of pent up tears,
tears release to chase off fears.

Fears are swept and thrown away,
away begins here today,
today allows thoughts to sway,
sway till life becomes okay.

Okay to replenish soul,
soul that still retains control,
control can obtain all goals,
goals once gained still leave a hole.

Holes are hungry to be filled,
filled by a great need to build,
build a dream so joy is drilled,
drilled until the heart feels thrilled.

Thrilled to elevate plateaus,
plateaus made to foreshadow,
foreshadow where spirits flow,
flow until inner lights glow.
