Come out of your shell
wherever you are.
Believe in yourself
that's who you are.
Take each day, day-by-day
make the demons go away!
My new shoes are so noticeable
All I can think about is how everyone must be looking at them
I wish I could scuff my shoes
Blend in with the crowd
Forget that I have them on
Throw them away
I cannot change the fact that these shoes are
a part of me.
But I can put them away,
Or take them out
Whenever I feel the need to wear them.
So I think I'll take a walk in these shoes
so that I can look at them,
Confident that I will grow comfortable in owning them.
The safety and shelter of many trees used to
be a place of freedom for me.
Now the tree branches symbolize
change, growth and stretching to new goals.
The roots depict both the hidden and exposed
search for inner truth and nourishment
received from verbalizing the unspoken
that was necessary to provide the strength to ground me.
Energy in the sap released hope, joy, creativity
and the fluidness of spirit.
The sight of a mature tree reminds me to trust
in the nurturing, caring, sharing and love
I have newly realized and enjoy the freedom of just being
A MOMENT IN TIME
The perfect photo,
it just happened
Down by the sea
There she sat
Peace B sheltered B alone in her solitude
Her body joined forever
- in a moment in time -
With the water, the sun, nature
The Photo B in black & white
Saw her: sensuality as the waves crashed against her legs
leaving them wet & glistening;
Saw her: sensuality as the sun warmed her body
melded with the sand;
Saw her: sensuality as her bathing suit of
many colours joined
Mother Nature's glorious blue reds & greens
The Photo, in black & white
Captured her bliss in
A Moment in Time,
Everlasting-entwined with Nature
