I remember when I got high
And placed my head into the lap of your lost lullabies
the kind that sing about the cloaked corners of life
Mama’s sad and daddy’s gone
Hush little darling, the tears will stop before long
The moon is on the slow rise
The sun is losing sleep with dark eyes
I know your Idling in the repeat of black days
But the solitude of the desolate cocoon
Is just a nap before growth pushes you through
Hush little darling, the tears will stop before long
Soon you will be in the sky with me
Of how the butterfly came to be
My next addition for the ABC Challenge with Rich. For all so far peek over at wafflemethis :))
*My brother was so on my heart for this as soon as I heard I was up with the letter “J”. I lost him last year, at only 38 he left us way too soon. It was unexpected and devastating. He always made me feel treasured- he was most definitely, the best. I miss you Joe- every single second. *
Jailing jittering joy
Keen Kingmakers Kingdom
Loving laughter lit
Lowly losing light
The cool nights spreading our
…in a spider web of directions
And I sense your minds packed up and ready to go
Come here baby
For we still have space to grow
And don’t you know, that life
…is like a treasure chest
To find that gold you gotta dig
…through the mess
The day is dragging
Alarm clocks on an antique
Yet all is not lost!
There is a trapped door
…marks the spot
Let us fall inside,
…if only for a minute
Two one way trips to Neverland
I shall dance with Wendy
And you fly
…with Peter Pan!
*hi wp family! This was inspired by the magic of PAN-finally it’s coming out today and you better believe I will be there with my tinker-bells on!! :)) Happy Friday!
Inspired by sweet Annie B
Across the universe
His hands are sweeping her hair
Golden locks, a hiding place for her wilted stare
His love harnesses no questions
He knows, she quietly begs for his affection
He cradles each tear drop
He captures each fear
Allowing her wild spirit
…to roam with a freedom repaired
On the tips of butterfly wings
On the dew of a dawning field
Catches a ride, on her ruby studded coattails
…The magical trace of their glorious fate
From dancing with the stars up on high
To coming down, with a sobering cry
Golden strands again shielding her eyes
He is sweeping her hiding place
and rocking her grief
Across the universe, exists two lovers
and I wonder
…Is one of them me?
I wish each post I presented could be positive and uplifting. But then life happens and I become the sun closing my eyes behind a curtain of clouds. All I feel is grey. I call it a funk or a slump. But that is life isn’t it? Not everyday is sidewalk skipping, sometimes we trip and fall- sometimes…I get right back up and other times, I lay there, against a scalding backbone and wait for my legs to regain strength.
Either way, I have promised myself to be honest and authentic in this place– a collision of words from a spirit that is overcoming. And overcoming is quite a journey :))
Recently I had a slump funk and I shared it with my family here. I am overcome with love, moved by your words and truth. I read my messages and think “oh my gosh these people are incredible. They truly listen and they truly care”. So I want to thank each one of you…
Thank you so much for helping me!
You are all my superheroes, armed with love and kindness, helping to rescue this souldiers sadness.
I appreciate my family here so much.
Today I say to each one of you: You completely rock!!
So go now and rock on with your badass gorgeous unique selves!
Love ya, SG
“My truest friends have arrived in my darkest times, swirling around me in a hurricane of love and protection” -SG
I was having a hard time a few weeks back- being cut off from some people I really love for no particular reason- I fell into a slump- an unloved sad little slump. Poking around my favorite sites I saw a post by the lovely Carolina at yesterdayafter. If you don’t already know or haven’t seen (please please look) Carolina makes her own incredible jewelry. That night she had posted a Rose Quartz- did you know Rose quartz is termed the “love stone”? It’s also called the bohemian Ruby- hello! How awesome is that?!
We got to sharing about the healing properties it brings. Carolina is educated in all of this btw- she’s amazing. So she began to make me my own- she spent the week pouring soul love into this ring for me. It was not something cool I picked up at a random shop- this was made from straight soul love to connect us in friendship and healing.
And the day came when it arrived…
I sat on my bed with the giddiness of a child! I felt her love and now I have something to wear so I never forget.
I have been hurt so much in my life that I became afraid and even suspicios when someone was actually kind to me! I am breaking down those fears and here in this forum I have been so embraced. I have been loved and accepted. I still can’t believe it. We are worthy of this love. We are all worthy of our own love stone- to remind us when we forget.
**thank you sweet Carolina for your time and encouragement and joy toward me- we share a soul love that, like this stone, will hold strong against the winds of fear and peril.
Love, real love, is a fierce light to demolish doubts and doom. ~SG
Have a great day my fellow loves!
If any of you are on pintrest, please share your inspirations and follow me @Souldiergirl❤️ :))
More creations from my talented love!! The pictures are taken by her or I- I want to give her loads of applause!! And kisses too!!
Was feeling wrapped in sadness the other day, then I checked my e-mail and one of my lifelong best friends sent me these- so beautifully framing my pictures and words from my poems. I felt so loved that she had done this for me. I will be posting them as often as she surprises me with her stunning work!
Long has been the day
When summer soothed the breast of autumn
Bring our plants back to life again?
I’m dazed and flushed
Off everything that could have been
Like the tin man
Searching for what I never knew I had
I see you in every shard of glass
Crystals splitting colors within the dark
As leftover memories provoke my heart
I saw your body for the first time today
This morning you came to bury my pain
I’ve heard your voice so many times
And it electrifies my being
It’s magical and soothing
Then there you were
My breath locked and my mouth…
Face to face
My god you are a gorgeous being
My hands touched
My lips kissed
From bottom to topless
You are a chiseled sculpture
By the work of the gods fingers
Take this piece as my depth
For showing up at my door
And curing my blues
P.S: I love you
