My Solar Plexus
The vortex That hole in the middle of my chest Is it fire, is it water Whirling fluid or air A whirlpool, a whirlwind It feels like a waterfall Like broken glass Shattered and falling into me My heart is too extended Filled with thoughts of all my children My grandchildren My father, my mother, My brothers, their families And the pain is just … Read More My Solar Plexus
Freedom comes when the search is over… Its been such a long time So caught up was I in seeking the feeling of home It’s been a labryinth trying to get to you Across the universe inside my head Ruminating, contemplations that led nowhere Was all the trouble worth it The mental dissection of potential outcomes Scenarios without tangibles Imaginations, dreams and nightmares The … Read More Setting Sail!
Harness The Heart Break
For all the times I felt the pain To love is a mysterious thing Love comes in so many forms As a child your want of love It blinds you to anything else Do you see me, do you hear me That’s the stumbling in the dark From child to teen, to adult As we age, as we develop We grow to understand the … Read More Harness The Heart Break

I awaken with a start, hearing a sound deep in my mind It is the sound of horses pounding the ground while running I am flying above them and I swoop down and soar beside them Their nostrils flaring, and their breathing is forced and loud I lift up into the sky and veer to the left and rise up high I reach a … Read More Mountaintop Experience

The fork in the road.
Here I am again, I’ve been traveling down this road for so long now, and once again another fork in the road. What is this life other than a labyrinth that we must travel, at the end of which we leave this world. I stand still in the middle of a quiet road and simply observe the roads that split off and wonder where … Read More The fork in the road.

It can be overwhelming and … Read More Here comes the Sun!

Girl on a path.
About a month or so ago I was struggling with something and I felt the weight of it deep within my soul. When I woke up I decided to just paint and see what came out of me. As I began with charcoal I just covered the canvas with black and rubbed my hands through it and sprayed water on it until I felt … Read More Girl on a path.
