It has been a busy couple of weeks and today is my first day off I've had in over 7 days. I decided to keep this poem short and off prompt. I may write to the prompt later but it felt like something deeper which I just didn't have the energy for at the moment.

Finding flowers in 
unusual places 
a pastime 
I enjoy 
seeing the beauty 
and strength 
in nature 
reminds me 
to be strong

Have fun playing with your words during OctPoWriMo!

Surrendering to Love

It begins. OctPoWriMo seventh annual poetry challenge begins now. The words flow from many all over the world. Some link up and some choose to play with their words offline. Will you be one of them?

Today's prompt is about surrendering to love, allowing oneself to open to love within and love from others.

Love
it isn't as simple as
black and white
so much baggage to unpack
being in the moment
can be painful
and then there are
moments of
joy
sudden and sharp
making colors come alive
music sound brighter
hope blossoms
and then is dashed
again
again
surrender is a state of
mind
surrendering to love
doesn't always feel safe
will now be the time
will now be the place
surrendering to love
myself

...

Hop on over to OctPoWriMo to see what other poets are writing about Surrender.

Peace,
Willow a.k.a. MDragonwillow

Poetry in My Veins

A new chapter in my life is unfolding, everything is changing. With change there comes an ache spreading through my body, uncertainty moving through me, and I try to catch my breath.

The second half of life is bringing many changes - physically, emotionally, spiritually. Relationships are shifting, moving, changing. Friendships are deepening. A new love is flowing up... down, and hopefully back up again.

Poetry is breathing in my ear, "Come to the page..." as it often does, but particularly when I need words to help me know, really know, me.

So the timing is perfect that OctPoWriMo is coming right around the corner. The words are floating along my veins, begging to be placed on the page.
