If you wish, your prompt is to create things that demonstrate how you have reality in hand but are somehow outside it. Dare to be the freedom that expresses what is yours and yet beyond yourself. Life is a crucible, be the alchemy.
The bravest of hearts May lose its way along paths Insecure, doubtful; Love’s gifts may lift the troubled High enough to trust, believe.
Live yourself each day, If you somehow lost your way During yesterday Make today your tour de force, Continue in taking charge. Living this one life Generously given you To make an impact, Explore your paths of purpose Spread love, care, creatively. Standing in limelight May never become your fate, But a difference can Be made in many moments Choosing kindness to spare, share. You are a precious Child of the Creator held Eternally in blessing, Never forget no matter What occurs, you are valued.
Music roars, lion, Distant thunder over sand Dreams still understand; Giving hearts, delicate song, Join in, raising forces long. Love, a hypnotic Drumline, spirits syncopate Finding reason to Raise green velvet curtains, Welcoming one another. Breath enough to be In between the magic thrill Never going still, But a dangerous feeling Mainlining each small glory. Shaky dance steps learned, Holding being, hands, hearts, souls, Love wins, enfolds tight, Brightens the mind, midnights, lights Alleviates much grievous pain. Music begins trust Under loving circumstances, Reaching out again.
What is harder than diamonds, But fuels like coal? The blatant disregard We have for the dear things Held sacred within people’s souls. Often, we, unknowing As a freshly diapered babe Are only in ourselves given to see What shines, brilliantly bright, Though around us circle Unnumbered universes of light – Revealed in eyes that announce Narratives of creation, creativity, Inspiration, independently sourced. We unthinkingly rush In Abhorrent uniform to wreak Havoc with demands to conform – The mountains, oceans, sky, Beg, please have mercy on Everyone, see, hear, know All are brief and majestic, Passing flowers of eternity. We never exist alone, galaxies, Civilizations, populations Are inherently our home. No strangeness is too strange, For love survives all vexation, Bringing reflections of potentiality. Remember everything, every – One of us is striving to graduate To higher realms of becoming, Being, meaning, which cannot Block out or isolate the present.
