A Poem about Today
There she is Naked and Afraid
Scrubbed clean of all the flakiness the enveloped her.
Soft butter she has become, strewn of her hard exterior.
Grey Scales no more appear her rose petal glow is quite clear
She likes this feeling of shedding her scales and replacing them with petals
For there is something in a Rose, so soft and delicate but to hold one
takes such skill, one wrong unthoughtful grab and your finger is pricked.
To strip away those thorns you would no longer have a Rose.
Breathe with Me
My heart wraps around my brain and twists between my legs
My toes curl and my spine breathes as I melt into it
I am scared you are right
scared of never feeling this understood like I do when I;m with you
I dont have you, I dont need you although at times I feel like i do
I want you, I choose you.
I want to feel you body into mine
Your soft gaze fervently searches my face and I sing into my eyes as they stare back at you
I want to love you with every single beat of my heart
To let you blend into my spirit lifts me forth into the heavens and spreads me wide like the oceans covering the land.
When i am confused, scared, hurt, or angry beloved
with all your gentleness and kindness and love with mercy
Remind me to do one thing
Breathe with ME.
Her power spreads to all that pass by
People can feel her before they see her
They stop and stare, not sure what they are looking at....a girl, a goddess, a witch
all they know she has something they feel too and they want her to show them
They can tell when she is strong and even when she is weak.
Although, she lights up when feeling strong, she has yet to control the dying fire when she burns low.
Like the last rays of the sun in the sky after the dip beyond the horizon
she spreads that fire as far as the eye can see.They know she is special and she knows she has a gift, a calling to bring to each one of their lives.
I wrote these words at different points in my life but I hold them close to me. The last two days have been raining and thunderstorming, I AM LOVING IT! I like to take these days to re read some of my journal writings, reflecting on how far I have come or maybe realizing that not much has shifted and its time for some new action. These few writings I have shared(big breath) are ones that speak as huge reminders to me. They are about me and for me, to help me remember to slow down kiss the sky, dance with the rain, feel the thunder:)
In Gratitude Your Hannah
