Taking “Me Time”

It is unfortunate that the way of the modern world often forces us to press on and race through life, that taking care of ourselves and listening to our own personal pace and rhythm, often gets pushed down the priority list. But… really? It shouldn’t, and doesn’t, have to be that way. I am blessedContinue reading “Taking “Me Time””

Back to Basics

You cannot imagine how happy I am right now. I have just done my first load of laundry at my new home: the first home I’ve rented in Costa Rica with a washing machine. I cannot describe to you how good it felt to hang up those fresh clean clothes on my balcony. They’re probablyContinue reading “Back to Basics”

The Waking Hour

Sweet innocence of the dawn – Here I am Untouched Without the distraction Of the day, and All those energies Twirling, pulsing So many different Competing pulls Obscuring the truth of the child within That child With a heart, so alive Knows just when to run And when to surrender When to give, and WhenContinue reading “The Waking Hour”

Slow it Down

Today I’m nursing my first motorbike injury. Despite all my rides and hitchhiking habit, I’ve never had so much as a scratch before: and I’ve had some wild rides, including on a bumpy dirt road with two large backpacks and a ukulele, plus my driver and his bag. It’s nothing major; just a burn fromContinue reading “Slow it Down”

Wholeness

I wake, and I remember you; divine essence from a wistful dream’s calling And so I rise, shine in my truth from burnt shadow to flaming grace; I’ve learnt to sate that inner longing for another’s sweet, loving blessing; I’ve united with that love in my soul, with the collective heartbeat in mine * *Continue reading “Wholeness”

Onward Bound

I pack my things, to close this chapter; a door on all, I left behind. The nights I tossed in this bed as I witnessed my death, over and over; felt the vicious pain of a wounded mother, a sick child, and a lost father. But I took that hurt, I whispered it love andContinue reading “Onward Bound”

Storm of the Ego

I watch you play In the shadows of my night When my body is weak From my heart’s fading beat You strengthen, and you fight With your desperate, angry claws Vying for attention To sate that hunger deep   But I see right through your pain I see the child there Crying out for loveContinue reading “Storm of the Ego”

Release

As the year fades, I feel it sharp Steady tug Upon my opening heart Thickness of my shadows Past and parallel Have been tightening Fast, and fierce With an angry pull But I know I’m wiser, stronger still Than the darkest void Than the blackest star That’s melted from It’s dying grace; And so IContinue reading “Release”

Lunar spirit

From the bloody shipwreck Of my battered heart My bruised ego And my broken soul; I emerge to hear A calling true From the depths within A rosy song Is rising to dance With the incoming tide Of the Lunar spirit Guiding me strong; Till I’m home In a realm beyond Where divine power OfContinue reading “Lunar spirit”
