An angry heart,
A damaged soul,
Possessed by,
A grumpy troll.

A lacking luster,
A friendly foe,
I aim to learn,
What I should muster.

A canny face,
A polished mind,
A fruitful spirit,
A happy place.
Time to branch out into other kinds of poetry now that I’m finding my inner peace.
Caro Jun 2023
Slowly thinking thoughts
while cooking a late dinner in a
dimly lit kitchen,
A quiet I haven't said hello to
in a long time,
But I suppose she's always been here
Waiting for me to slowly think my thoughts
Pepper Dove Dec 2022
Finally
I catch a break
from the clattering chatter
of complaints
To melt into this cozy chair
and rediscover my own thoughts,
myself,
who I have lost
somewhere in the noise

Finally
I catch my breath
and slowing its pace, I embrace
the silence
This temporary peace I seldom
catch hold of these days

And just as I finally start to see
myself...

It's taken

Shattered and scattered
like a cars side mirror
side-swiped
by the haphazardly cluelessness
of another

My reflection

My inner self

Gone

Once more

I read and read on every word spills filling me.
Every thought catching every emotion leaving me stunned my mind wonders imagining your lips reading the pages of your emotions
I feel I see taking you on
reading connection accepting your beautiful thoughts
I take you for you thank you for sharing
poetry writing
Faith Tagle Jul 2021
Under the glistering sun,
she plunges into the deep
finding her soul once again.
She holds her breath
and continues to descend.
Only minding her thoughts.
Only wanting to be free.
She glides and she flies,
as if dancing and being one
underneath.
Until it's time to go up
leaving all her secrets and
fantasies beneath.

Drawn to the edge of the water
in concert with the moon
tides ebbing, flowing,
tasting, smelling,
feeling, hearing,
waves of the sea
crashing, salty, wet,
transporting me—
Inner peace

Inner peace
transporting me—
crashing, salty, wet,
waves of the sea
feeling, hearing,
tasting, smelling,
tides ebbing, flowing
in concert with the moon
Drawn to the edge of the water

Walking  through a field of flowers
Where time stands still.
Where there is no yesterday nor tomorrow
A silent promise to fulfill.
Where there is no pain nor sorrow.
A soothing feel is all you
feel.
The hope to meet  you  here and always
Where peace begins and love   prevails.

Garden of love, a field were time stand stills.
Feeling innerpeace in the presence of love!
Seasons of the weather
Seasons every year
Like the wind blows
in four directions
Different seasons will appear

Seasons of the heart  however
Are seasons of the mind
They come without a warning no direction of any kind

They come and go whenever
Leaving you behind
Behind with different feelings
Such are seasons of the mind

Always listen to your calling
Giving meaning to it all
Then peacefulness will follow
Giving Innerpeace of mind

Innerpeace
most  precious season
of them all.

your DNA is wild
so please,
take care
of your inner child

you may pass some challenging phases
although people don’t want you
to grow in certain places

so grow through concrete
in the middle of the street
grow in a litter bin
grow from dirt
grow in different directions
grow with imperfections

because your roots are strong
and you aim up high
until you reach the sky

so grow in every angle you want to
because there’s a wildflower in you.
