Transformation

Transformation

Even the caterpillar must spread its wings It can't stay a chrysalis  It must be changed. Does it resist? Does it cling to its cocoon? No, It seems to embrace that change is good news. It knows the way forward  Is both beauty and peace Just as the follower who trusts and seeks For when the [...]

Honesty and Waves

Honesty and Waves

I thought I deleted this first poem. Why? I believed it wasn't good enough. More so because it's so honest. Too honest. Then I was praying one morning, and I used the words "sinking like a stone." Immediately this poem came to my mind. I regretted deleting it, but then I remembered it was probably [...]

Patience

Patience

It was time to get ice cream and fries again. As we pulled out onto the road I noticed the blue sky and wonderful white clouds. Off in the distance a perfect row of clouds caught my eye. I pointed them out to Andrew. Then as I looked out my passenger side window I said, [...]

Evening Light

Evening Light

Evening Light  So lovely a night Warm through and through Let me bask in this sight. Can't I stay outside? Can't I capture the moon? I could sleep under the stars Till I'm bit by a racoon.  Tina S.W. July 21, 2020 Ah, Canadian poetry. Nothing but the best. Photos! My weeds! They've grown like [...]

Luminance

Luminance

I want to be a light But I fear I'm too dim I want to be a guide  But I'm so lost within.  If I were sunshine I could brighten the day  I'd spill into a room and take storm clouds away. But I'm just another soul Who's searching for words  Out on the waves  [...]

Seek (Search)

Rescue Me

Rescue Me

I have a poem for you! First, let's take a look at what yesterday brought. I woke up at around 4AM and couldn't get back to sleep. Very grey thoughts churned around in my head until the alarm went off at 7AM. By then I was in tears. Early in the afternoon Andrew and I [...]

Safe Harbor

Safe Harbor

Adrift Out of touch But not out of sight My needs are met Even in the fight. Worn Thrown by waves But not out of hope When the sea's rough You settle my boat. So I won't forget Your faithfulness  You deserve my praise  And nothing less I won't cease to thank you  For all [...]

Lovingkindness

Lovingkindness

It's no big deal? She wishes this were true Tell this to her battle When she's lost and she's confused Tell this to her mountains  When the rocks keep coming loose Tell this to her heart When it's battered and abused. It's no big deal? She wishes it were so Tell this to her giants [...]
