i never learnt how to swim
yet here i am
with my head under water
and my clothes soaking wet

that the sea is more honest
with those who are willing to drown
Joanna 1d
Bottled notes in a restless sea,
found by one who holds the key

to unsealing a riddle within...
and there in realizing the truth
that begins...

to add a bit of magic to this recipe
called life. And to aid in resolving
the strain of to much

Bottled notes in a restless sea, found
by the one living as a testimony of
fruitful seed.

Still waters run deep,
their influence, calms
the ragged edges
of my mind.
I see it as a sign
that something new
is around
the next turn.
And I know my heart
is ready for whatever
it is  I am to learn.

Still waters take on a new
meaning as I watch and
abide the time.
Giving me the key to
uncovering what I have
waited for. Cleansing the
soil within, they have
opened the door. 

Still waters leave me
thinking there is
something beautiful
coming my way.
Something that is not
like anything I have known
before. Something that
will bring a new connection
is now at my door. 

These waters hold the tool
for releasing all my fear,
replacing it with something
made very clear. In a journey
purposed from above, in a life
spent enjoying the purity
of love.

Sitting on its haunch,
Bear drinking river water.
Alone. Safe. Secure.
A random Haiku sort of thing about how my day went.
I never planted my roots with you
Because the ground was too firm
You had too many rocks

Oh light of my life
How was I meant to grow up
When I was surrounded by ground covers

all around me

How was I meant to bloom
in a garden
that you never cared to water?
I still loved you the most
I was once in a boat
And around me was deep dark water
I couldn’t see the bottom
So when my boat sprung a leak
I thought it was over
And i jumped head first into the water
And started to swim
To where the stars pointed
Until i couldn’t
So I prepared to die
But I didn’t
I lived.
We are all in a boat

The sun shines over those green trees
It makes the river greener
My mind happier
The birdsong makes the silence
Sound like a symphony
I can hear the leaves on the branches
Trembling by the soft and fresh wind
My feet in the cold water
Make the trees reflecting on it all blur
Those ravens remain quiet for once
This place makes the ravens peaceful
This is my definition of enchantment

Oh little lily pad,
You'll have to battle to stay afloat,
Shielding yourself against the sharp, dark waves,
Of my beating heart.
But, please learn to take root.
For, I'll intertwine around you,
Taking hold, slowly hoping you'll realize,
Those same dark waters,
Are struggling to nuture your very core.
Those same dark waters,
Have made you grow, baby.
