My dear friends, I am taking a break from my weekly blog today. It is the dark moon on an eclipse, the first day of my cycle and I need some rest today. Every bone and muscle in my body tells me so, and I am listening :). I have a poem for you though, because I cannot leave you with nothing – and a day that begins with poetry is a day that has a head start on all the others that don’t IMO <3. Be well, and I will see you in the ether.
Your Natural Soul
Whether or not you know
that you are beautiful,
the flowers gaze at you
when ever you walk by.
When your heart feels like stone
and you’ve lost sight
of the gifts being given,
you are still held by the earth beneath you
and kissed by the breath of the trees.
When you’ve convinced yourself
that you’re hopeless
and that you simply can’t fulfill the role
that you were born here to play,
the sky is still whispering your name
and the stars are waiting for their chance
to sing to you.
You are wanted here.
You are part of this creation.
Let your hurts melt away in the waves
Let your cries be carried by the birds.
Earth, air, fire and water are the truth of you
and when you drop the veil
and open to the greater You,
you will find your fullness
in the valleys and the groves
and bow again to the sacred altar
of your natural soul.
