My Deepest Heart

Remembrance September 27, 2019

I began to notice moments

of unfolding tenderness.

It was okay if there were

challenging moments.

I had learned that experiences

were always transforming

and, like the wind,

could change course

in an instant.

And it was enough to know

I could, in any moment,

hold or allow myself to be carried

by the sweet, gentle breeze

of my deepest heart.

From a Quiet Space

Remembrance, Unsorted January 31, 2019

Writing in the moment

began as a way of telling

the story of past healing

and quickly became a way

of moving through present challenges,

flowing new kinds of thoughts

from a quiet space within —

remaining open to the possibility

that new kinds of thoughts

and feelings could begin to be

reflected.

Remembrance May 21, 2017

There was

a settling back in

to what had been

carefully​ hidden.

The longing

to be some place

other than

that moment

was transformed into

a delicate embrace

and remembrance

of my own true

essence.

There was a knowing

that shifting

would continue

and that it would

have to come

out of this

space.

Being Healer

Remembrance December 5, 2016

Being healer

meant reaching in

for that last bit

of courage

to reach out

just one more time.

It meant taking

the pieces of

my heart

to safe places

and remembering how

to hold them.

It meant using

my flexibility

to continue on

as I was guided

to new places.

It meant using

my ability

to listen

a little more deeply

and to finally

understand that

the place I had

searched so hard

to find

was the sacred space

within my own

heart.
