The shelf
Just out of reach
Filled with precious treasures
Forgotten eventually
Long gone

The jungle is taking over
Growing like triffids
Strangling my garden
With boa constrictor vegetation

a brisk breeze blew through swaying trees today
dancing sunlight on their new green leaves
an invitation to the dance was seen hatching
under lily leaves who's bloom is high noon tomorrow

Spring finally has come into blossom
Pink petals littering the bright green grass
Sunshine beams through trees' young leaves
Even a bumble bee made a brief visit recently

Back in college
Really found it stronger
When telepathy came easy

The fear of the future it softly says hello
Anxiety rises as intuition starts to show
Not anticipating pain, not wanting sorrow
Opening up to a better tomorrow

Rain is falling yet again
Loved the specatuclar Spring morning
Sunshine showed on new blades of green
This season is so healing for my being

Danger everywhere
Lurking in dark hidden corners

Let go of fear
Light will always shine bright at night

Remember to forget everything said
Or it will drive you crazy racing round your head
Best to let it flow to the back of the mind
And every so often take it out sometime
And roll around the pictures that come
Remembering times of passion and numb
Forgiving whatever is still causing you pain
Then bless every love and send it back where it came

Caught in a manic speed trance
Imagining a possible romance
Not quite sure why this thought came
Reminding myself to not believe the game
That virtual people in reality are the same
But then there's always the chance if they show
That you'll really connect and they are who you know
So if you live near and and just coffee is clear, you will go

Switching gears and changing scenes
Shifting rain to sparkling light beams
Awakening from imaginary dreams
From a time long ago of kings and queens

When horses were the way we all rode
Watching the fabrics sway as we strode
Golden threads were the preferred dress code
Unless one was a slave and did what was told

Close your eyes and drift away
Let your mind relax with nothing to say
Let your body grow heavy and start to sway
Lay down on the ground where you can stay
Supported by the earth turning beneath you
Breathe more deeply like you're not used to
Finding yourself sleepy so you slip through
To another realm with a panoramic view

Living in the present now
Still honestly learning how
Taught to breathe deeply
But seem to forget so easily
Best way I find is to dance
Really gives the mind a chance
To not be active while body moves
Fantastic music to feel the grooves
Like yoga for some it helps you become
A higher version of your person

Wild flower fields and hidden caves to explore
All seem familiar though never been there before
Perhaps it's a dream from another lifetime
Before you wrote in a sing-song sort of rhyme

Finding a peaceful place to sit down
Stalagmites and stalactites all around
Catching the light from the full moon
Creating an astoundingly beautiful room

Looking out across the field in flight
Dancing wild flowers come into sight
No more do you feel any rising fright
Reminded this is a magical night

With umbrellas in hand for balance and shade
Walking a tightrobe they are a great aid
Teetering on the rope not sure you can cope
Then realize you got this with sudden new hope

Dancing on the string with a lightness of being
Totally filled with a new kind of freeing
Slowly you let yourself down to the ground
Grateful for the confidence you found

oops. funny you should say that as my thoughts too...getting too hung up after hard patch.
slowly shifting again...helps my spirit open and feel that connection.

No division
That's the big illusion

Operators are ready to answer your call
Always on hold while you start to fall
Asleep when they purposefully let you wait
Don't call on your break or you're sure to be late
Think it could be the impatient state
We've all become with the digital fate
Attention span has grown quite small
Just gotta put up with the long lasting call
Without losing your mind from it all

Deep inside where a new you is reborn
Blossoming out of your feeling forelorn
Like a new Spring bud now re-awakening
You've grown from last year slowly completing
A stage of your life that brought so much strife
Along with a lot of sharp cuts by the knife
Not by choice did you feel all that pain
Now moving on finds you loving again

thanks drifting e, back atchya and everybody!

The error of my ways started to show
Energy darkened with an eerie glow
Had to try not let my anxiety show
Having to learn when to say no
To my mind that wants to know
Why things change now so slow
Slipping into a strange to and fro
Guess it's a way we learn and grow

Teepee poles wouldn't keep out the rain
But sure would be cool to see lightning
Open to the sky day and night
Sleeping under full moon's light
Waking to the sun shining bright
Something about that feels just right
Fire lit in center to cook and stay warm
Whole tribe around to keep from harm
