Wonder

Pay attention, darling.

Pause in the slightest movements of the universe, the subtle nuances, the unexplained happenings that you call, “lose threads.”  Like a ball of tangled yarn, these very moments twist and turn, specific to you, alone.

Pay attention, darling.

Stand brave and alone at the crossroad of life. Stay unflinching on the page. Allow the truth of time to heal you. When tears fall like rain, know that the seeds of joy awaken to see you smile again.

 

Known as Athena, she holds a vessel of ancient wisdom, beyond that which we could ever know. Trust her vision for you.

Pay attention, darling.

Trust the journey you’re on

As she knits the story of a beautiful life.

 

 

The Wolf

And like a wolf 

Chasing the moon

To steal her light

 

You hunted me down

Currency

The value isn’t in the object. It is in the human story attached to it. The worn chair, the chipped saucer, a silver fork, her oil painting, a skeleton key, a one-eyed bear, a favourite find, a worn photograph. The memory is tactile, visual, and fraught with emotion.

Love. This is the currency to value.

love is the currency

Charming

Charm me, darling

Perchance I forget

 

“Behind every song is an untold story,” he said.

With a gentle nudge

He whispered, “Come dance.”

 

The notes began from silence

And in the still, I fell

Drunk on him

 

Time signatures filled the room

Apollo cradled Calliope

As the music played on

 

Lyrics overtook me

Words slipped like honey from my tongue

I spoke

Of never-ending summers

Starry nights, we chased till dawn

Of sea shells and ocean waves

A siren’s lilting song

Candle lit moments

Before time left me wondering,

Is there any poetry left?

 

He pulled me closer

As the music played on

 

Music painted on silence

Gave wings to my soul

Strong magic

Lifted me from the ashes

 

He kissed my broken

Poured the poetry back in

As the music played on

 

~ Apollo and Calliope

 

 

 

 

 

 

Simple, Beautiful Things

I shut myself in a room

surrounded by beautiful things

Music, books, old photographs, a Swallow’s nest, found glass

and silver

Everything beautiful

~ Old World Soul

simple, beautiful things

Memories

Memories

Of a time

Little Golden Book moments

Tossed high

Into the branches of a backyard cherry tree

If only to imagine pink snow in April

~ Snow was pink, where we once lived.

Grace’s Cherry Tree

A Queen

Forget gold.

Give her love

Fleet and fierce

Defend her heart

Pull the daggers from her back

Be a Storm Watcher

Give her shelter

Brush the snowflakes from her tangled hair

Speak words that matter

Honest and true

Have a heartbeat that quickens

at a fingertip’s touch

Give her love

She is worth your time.

~ Lyrics and Leather

 

A Secret

~ a quiet space

I’ll share a secret

There is magic in fairy tales

Cinderella, Merida, Belle and their sisters were not perfect in the beginning

They had to wander dark forests

Perfection does not make a story

It’s only a happy ending when you turn the last page.

~ Once Upon A Time

and sometimes we miss the beautiful truth

too busy polishing dusty lies

 

~ we shall see
