haiku

im tryin to get

to know me in front of you

please close your eyes tight

today.

i give thanks for my parents. who have stood by my side when i made standing near me impossible…they have shown me love in ways i seek to return and to pass on to my children…

i give thanks for the lil things that bring me so much joy it makes my belly hurt… literally…watchin my daughter learn where he nose is…hearin my sons make new music…or even from a distance seein them confide in eachother…learning how to perfect their lives…and there selves…

i give thanks for my companions…who are truthful and sincere…and beautiful reflections of light…

i give thanks for the remembrance of GOD…for the ease that this brings me and the desire to remember…

ask yourself what is your purpose…what is your mission and are you fulfilling it…are you staying true to your path and surrounded by those who will call you to it…

i once heard a quote that i wish i would remember more “doubt your doubts believe you beliefs”…hold to this with me…

and begin new….in loving and taking every moment and giving it its right…

live now.

love now…

day3. (5daycommitment)

im a slacker. sorry. heres a video instead. hope you enjoy.

day2. (5daycommitment)

secrets held so solemn even we forget there meaning

lest we forget our lives

lest we forget our soul

lest we forget our passsions

lest we forget our treasures…hidden in heaven…where dust can not reside…where our fears could never hide…and our lusts become lost never to be found again…i swear ive seen my soul ascend. pastures of pleasure…

if i could only remember while i am forgetting the sins that were inscribed upon me…the burden removed from me…i would be a better woman…i could be a better servant but how soon i sully myself…choosing scabs and scars…blood and bruises….as my beauty marks…ive lost the part of me…that keeps me balanced…i hold me silent when i should be screaming…i hold me hostile when i should be loving…i hold me softly when i should be fighting…as if this were my last breath…as if this was my last test…my first truth…seems like it is now a distant friend…who seldom thinks of me…never dreams of me…and has lost any sweet desire to hold my presence…hold me present…in thought…or…person…

im passing…barely…and proving…less worthy…less holy…less wholesome…like the stories that fall from my mothers lips…how her beauty makes them so lovely…

so sacred…so solemn we hold our secret…even we forget their meaning…

day1. (5daycommitment)

certain days i tend to agree with all that is good and pure and rich and worthy

and i welcome light as it were a lil child or a royal king a crown to place upon my forehead lightly touched with riches unmeasurable unleashed and unexpected undenied and awaitin glory and grace. i have found my self in my self in His self so precious and precise practicing patience holding to my virtue trustin in my honor and yet i am still and sinner my soul singin of songs too ugly to be unvieled for by the grace of my lord i am still loved and worthy to be hidden from the frowns of my enemies and of my loved ones…i have loved one man more then my mind can contain…more then i knew… i could not claim none of myself from that day forward….from that day backward i wonder where she went…and who she took with her…if i could time travel and tune in to visit a woman i know i must have loved…but too soon forgotten…too soon…it rottens like fruit in a dark damp place…lost life in a dark damp place…where the dry seeds also sprout…where we lose all doubt because we are left with no other option…. irresistible certainty…circling like spirit anointed doves…divine and designed for you to relax and reflect on love…in love…in awe…in God…

frequent flyer: “fly away”

lyrics:

took my time to bare my soul to you

took the time to show you all i’d do

took my time to tell you all my fears

took the time and now you are not here

you walk away so calmly from this space

as if you didnt hear me call your name

now all my nights i spend them all alone

oh how i wish that you could come back home

but all the wrong youve done i dont think you could make it right

and all the hurt you caused i dont think it will heal this time

voices in my head urgin me just to change my mind

so close so far cause now i lack the strength to even try

fly away with me my love

fly away with me now

was certain that we’d stand the test of time

was certain that you’d never leave my side

was certain that i meant too much to you

now i cant live with or without you

you walked so calmly from this space

as if you didnt hear me call your name

now all my nights i spend them all alone

oh how i wish that you could come back home

but all the wrong youve done i dont think you could make it right

and all the hurt you caused i dont think it will heal this time

voices in my head urgin me just to change my mind

so close so far cause now i lack the strength to even try

fly away with me my love

fly away with me now…
