for instance, I felt the yearn to feel love an arm surrounds an unclear path of blue, rejuvenating it is; I’m above, yet unanswered questions linger; seek clue, art thou afraid to love like juliet? hands unclasped; bent knees and silent prayers.
In the stillness I feel I listen I face my truth In the stillness I see I acknowledge my needs I let go In the stillness I receive I rejuvenate I heal In the stillness I reconnect I am one with everything
My life changed the day I started sitting in stillness in nature. Its a place I reconnect and heal.
When that sliver of daybreak tugs at your eyes Wake up to unexplored possibilities Stretch your body in gratitude Embrace the gift of a new day Open your heart to a compassionate view Welcome the sun as she rises for you Ground into this world and listen for what you need There is work to be done In the streets and in your own heart Start from the root
This is the first poem in 'Start From The Root', my recently published book of illustrations and poetry. After a year of polishing this book, I'm excited to have completed this goal. I have been writing poetry for most of my life, but only seriously in the past four years. After several people I loved died in just a few years, I began to write poetry as a way to heal. It has been some of the best medicine.
Alarm resonates By the bed side A morning thirst For a new spirit, A dextrose crave, With a contagious aroma, Dark brown to light Lost in the maze Rejuvenate all wishes Intoxicates blood flow First sip, a door to a day - - - - Until the end But still, Wish is for one more cup of awakening From sunrise to sunset To revive a breath Which connect “you” to “I”
A round of applause In a conscious state

Loud Music Music that soothes Music that rejuvenates Music that speaks to the souls
Loud music Forget the lyrics Its just the beats On a repeat For the amoeba thoughts Swirling twirling Swimming in uncharted waters Moulding them into set shapes Queuing them up in rows Taming down their pseudo waves
Music that has a feel The pebbles cascading down the stream , A tremulous tippy tappy sweet sound To the heart it appeals, heals
Music that is light and tender Dim the lights Close the eyes Let the music do the wonders
Music for the senses That soothes rejuvenates And speaks to the souls In tongues ancient Known ,yet unknown
Dawn of day’s…future days; the sun has shown Emerge… shake off what scab still remains and wipe the sleep from your eyes Stand tall; allow the encrusted quagmire to flake from your body Resurrect; cleanse yourself in the acceptance of a rejuvenated self Drink from the cup of prospect; fill your belly with optimism Clothe yourself in skin more fitting, one that dose not reflect the scars of battles past Stand out from the shadows, walk into the light, and immerse yourself in what is today Yesterday was yesterday and is forgotten; tomorrow is waiting to be written Breath in the possibilities, ink the quill and begin to write
