7 Rays

Red brings passion
excites my life,
often carries
unwanted strife.
Cuts so swiftly
like a sharp knife,
gifts of great strength
with endless drive
.

Orange keeps me
high on my toes,
makes every dream
transform to goals.
Fills all of my
ambition holes,
allowing me
to take control
.

Yellow is my
favorite ray,
guiding my heart,
painting my days,
shades my worst thoughts,
a lighter gray,
makes all my fears,
dissolve away
.

Green appears
with a playlist,
smooth energy
hard to resist,
fills up the soul

with a pure kiss,
allowing thoughts
to co-exist
.

Blue is noticed
in beads of sweat,
hard at work with
no regret.
Responsible
to repay debts,
giving to all,
till nothings left
.

Pink is pretty
always so shy,
blushed while staring
at my eyes,
this connection
made bonds fly,
unveiled deceits
quickly climbed high
.

Purple provides
the sense to know,
forms confidence
letting it show.
It swam to me,
joining my flow,
lit up my pride,
then made it grow
.

Accept

Accustomed to
receiving
“yes”,
yet “no”

can at times
bring success,
If angered

while hearing
a “no”
recall that “yes”

gives
false control.

Sensed false control

can feel
so true,
yet true effects

can not
be viewed.
No one is certain

of results,
some disillusions
,
bring exults.

Do not dismay

if what
you thought,
is not the same

as what
you bought.
Appreciate
,
when views
are shown,
lessons are gifts
,
from the
unknown.

Perception

Wake up and go, do what you do,
laugh like a fool, while playing cool.

Go through your day, no time to play,
as feelings sway, in disarray.
Hold a brave face, keep it in place,
another chase, an unknown race.
Good afternoon never goes soon,
horrible swoon, howl at the moon.
Another night, turn off the light,
thoughts hold too tight, sleep puts a fight
.

Wake up and go, write your own show,
make your life glow, change up the flow.

Go through your day, make time to play,
watch feelings sway, enjoy sun rays.

Smile on your face, that stays in place,
no need to chase a winning race.

Good afternoon, time flies too soon,
internal swoon, hello full moon.

A better night, feeling so light,
hold pillow tight, sleep feels so right.

Touch

Spread positive light.
Help whenever possible,
only if heartfelt.

Gift

Pretty pebble
thrown in the air,
left all alone
nobody cared.
Carried powers
way deep inside.
Unseen by all
but the wise eye
.

Young girl in search
for some control,
all by herself
taking a stroll.
Aims to fulfill,
numbed voided spots,
that broke apart
within her heart.


Finds slightest shine,
within a rock,
for the first time
feeling a spark.
Keeping it safe
deep in her pocket,
the perfect link,
for her prized locket.


Instantly clears,
all of her fears.
All sadness steers,
when it is near.
Every old tear,
transform to cheers.
Glad it appeared,
she holds it dear.


Pretty pebble,
felt loved at last.
Never ignored,
like in the past.
All special gifts
can now be shared,
emitting love,
deleting despair
.

Finding her way,
warmed by sun rays.
Embracing days,
from where she lays.
Feeling amazed,
empathy raised.
Rewards that pay
are vowed to stay.


Graceful pebble.
Secure young girl.
Gifts to this world,
like a fine pearl
.
Connected fast
attached they curled.
Enjoyed their dance
united twirl.

Whole

One day in time,
I walked life free,
laughed loud and proud,
climbed many trees.
I danced and sang
knew dreams would be,
standing so tall
believed in me
.

One cloudy night
you brought the rain.
Stripped confidence,
made me insane.
Holding me back,
I could not gain.
Introduced me
to constant pain.

One sunny day
my heart grew cold,
the blood it pumped
was frosty snow.
As sunlight lit
I gained control,
walking away
letting you go.

One afternoon
the warmest June,
my voice was cracked
and out of tune.
Looked at the sky
noticed moon hues,
reflections showed
that I am you.

One part of me
I wish to hide,
eyes will not see
I have two sides,
lone part so strong
quickly decides,
the sweeter one
serves as a guide.

The Evolving Soul

Change flies in like a flutter of birds
Suddenly I am at a loss for words
Becoming in tune with my soul’s ocean
Waves gift me with ever-changing emotion

Close my eyes to absorb what I feel
Butterflies chime as I start to heal
My mind decides on which way to go
My soul quietly chants “Go with the flow”

Seeing this dream through my newer eyes
The little me seeks attention, it cries
Its dying embers are lies, I start to recognize
So, instead I ascend, instead I rise

My heart starts to fly, I am one with the sky
I feel my soul rise as I wave a goodbye
The new me is born as the old is now gone
Farewell to my past, it was not meant to last

Hello to my now, my Universe takes a bow
Change is my friend, loving me till the end
Unclasp my hands, give my new life a chance
Lead with steady feet and eternally dance

Grace + Ace

One

Your fingers strum my feelings,
pressing down like piano keys,
every note forms a new tune
stroking thoughtless melodies
.

Your mind an endless chess game,
strategizing every move,
fumbling through my deep thoughts,
provokes me to self-improve.


Your chest is my soft pillow
that provides protective warmth,
safety shield that offers peace,
molding my dreams as they form.


Your words all sound like music,
offer my ears sheer delight,
lyrics make my spirit wander,
unmask my eyes to insight.


My dull heart reaches the sky
while engaging with your soul,
floating swiftly like paired hawks,
for the first time feeling whole.

Our wants forever fulfilled,
a deep love that never hides,
Co-creating fated futures,
where our lives can coincide
.
