Words are amazing things. They are beautiful alone and when strung together. I love the way plethora feels as I say it. When I string it together with possibilities, it encourages me to open my mind to a plethora of possibilities! I eagerly await a myriad of miracles. I am fierce — fantabulously fierce.
Words allow us to express our thoughts, feelings, understanding, and wonderings. That in and of itself makes words wonderful. But, beyond that, I find that words, used well, allow me to discover and give joy, reinforce or alter my feelings, and create new spaces for breath, life, and ease.
Poetry is not my usual creative jam. I’m intrigued by it. I enjoy the rhythm, and the way words are used to form incredible images. But, I don’t often indulge.
However, for some reason, a few years ago I started a poetry journal. I played and experimented. I pieced together words that encouraged life, joy, peace, breathing, and possibility.
I found that journal the other day, and was amazed at how much I need the words I wrote 8 years ago. Perhaps I will experiment again — there are many blank pages — but for now, I will simply share a few poems with you.
Two Magnet Poems:
Life is. Laughter is essential. Tears are inevitable. Life is good.
Possibility surrounds me. I see possibilities. They whisper to me. "We can happen soon."
From every acorn regrowth. Face everything and relax. Flying eagles are radiant. Fantabulous, easy, and remarkable. Fun even amidst rainstorms. Funky earrings are rockin'! Fantastic embraces are relished.
Enjoy Every Moment
Let's ... sing with the bluebirds breathe between kisses laugh in the sunshine smell every flower make many wishes dance beneath the moon. Let's ... enjoy every moment.
A bit of alliteration — I love alliteration, I’m not sure why, but I find it so satisfying.
Super soft sunshine pours perfect pretty patterns in incredible intricacies making mere movements become beautiful bits of amazing abstract art upon otherwise ordinary simple surfaces.
And then there are words, written on my body, in smooth, beautiful henna. These words mingle with my spirit, my actions — with my very self — and become a living poem.
Perhaps that will be my new poetry experiment – life, me, and relentless positivity.
