A Little Less Broken

Soothing March 28, 2019

After a while

a gentler way through the winding

roads of this human journey

became a little clearer

as the pieces of my own

shattered heart began to appear

a little less broken

and a little more like unpolished

treasures entrusted to my care.

I was never without

connection with a deeper space

within the greater whole,

though it seemed

to dance around a bit

through different forms

and natural things —

reaching back again —

softly touching the tender,

hidden spaces I once tried

to resolve.

A Gentle Path

Soothing March 25, 2019

Words became a gentle

path back into the willingness

to feel and to be a little more

present.

After a while, they began

to echo the silence of

my deepest heart —

winding their way through

old wounds —

soothing whatever appeared

along the way.

For Just a Moment

Soothing March 16, 2019

It took a little bit of courage

allowing softer thoughts to form —

landing on a surprisingly comforting

background of emptiness —

flowing effortlessly,

drifting a little more deeply

into my deepest heart.

Maybe it was the gentle rhythm

I had allowed myself to feel

once again,

for just a moment,

or a word formed of this

same emptiness

allowed to echo even more  —

somehow, gently,

against all odds,

from this deeper space

within.
