The Heart As Compass

“And the way forward always in the end
the way that you followed, the way that carried you
into your future, that brought you to this place,
no matter that it sometimes took your promise from you,
no matter that it had to break your heart along the way…

and that every step along the way, you had carried
the heart and the mind and the promise
that first set you off and drew you on and that you were
more marvelous in your simple wish to find a way
than the gilded roofs of any destination you could reach…”

~ Excerpt from Santiago by David Whyte

The Apprentice

Every step on the path
Unsure and uncertain
Feeling the other knowing
In the Heart
No sound in the voice
The urge is
Present and clear
The way forward
Obscured
I can only offer
My most sincere
And open desire
To apprentice
With the Mysteries of Life.

I’m so excited and honored to be once again included in the Women’s Spiritual Poetry Anthology of Poetry. I had some of my poetry included in their first volume Journey of the Heart and will have a poem in this second volume Where Journey’s Meet, which will be out this summer! More information and book trailer here.

Stacks of Poetry Books

This month is National Poetry Month and we’ve been celebrating all things poetry over at Be You Media Group. In the last edition of our weekly Love List we all contributed a picture with our favorite most indispensable poetry books. These are the ones that have spoken straight to my heart and the pages that I return to over and over again. Do you have a favorite? A whole stack of favorites?

“Poetry is ordinary language raised to the Nth power. Poetry is boned with ideas, nerved and blooded with emotions, all held together by the delicate, tough skin of words.” ~ Paul Engle

Resurrection

From last night’s Full Moon‬ deep diving excavation…

But now we can choose to
remember who we are…

Open our minds, eyes and hearts
when they are closed by confusion…

This is how heaven grows in us; and love.

Paper Prayers

New Year Paper Prayer

Open space
becoming sanctuaries
cyclical return
new birth
New Year‬.

Many blessings to all as we embark upon a new year with new adventures and lessons. I don’t really do resolutions or yearly words, however I do feel the New Year mojo and set intentions for myself and my work for the year ahead. I’m beginning 2015 with a new Found Poetry Project: Paper Prayers.

The words will make themselves known…

A Desperate Effort

Every Breath a Blessing

Sacred Smoke - Jenn Grosso

Divine Breath
{Poem by Jenn Grosso}

The wisp of Sacred Smoke
Calling me
To slow my world
Right down
And take a breath
And another
And yet another.

To remember this place
Dwelling inside
That never leaves me.

Breathing in
I am
Breathing out
I have already arrived.
