    Its been a long time family. I've been thru some things and I'm still dealing with things but i'm here and God is still good!


    On the stage,
    the sound
    within the echo
    is only silence of a strange
    kind.
    I realized that
    I needed a restoration to my
    soul, a cleansing that in
    the end would render me complete and
    finaly whole.
    The haiku of
    my life:

    Man, no reflection
    Does his mirror tell the truth?
    who is he really?

    A disillusion that left me
    sadly bereft and
    stumbling...
    bumbling...
    stumbling...
    tumbling...
    stumble...
    bumble...
    tumble and
    stumble some more.
    Blinded and misguided.
    Lost and my sight, strangely dimmed.

    I looked at the 'Me' of 'I' inwardly,
    my eyes focused on the state
    of my soul and spirit in
    a sad travesty.
    It couldn't be.
    Ah, but it was there for me to see.
    Finally,
    something had to be done.
    A cleansing inside that would
    remove the numb.
    A break from the mundane,
    nearly dry and coarse theatrical play;
    known as, 'My Life.'
    I needed fresh new lines,
    a fresh new delivery and a new stage to
    truly act upon.
    The old ways and dead ways would truly
    need to be gone.

    The playwright brought in new writers
    and a draft for new life was created.
    Opening night, I took center stage...
    in the newness and freshness of a new life
    that had been fated.
    God smiled on me,
    as I dashed across the stage reciting my lines
    smooth and clearly.
    He smiled and I am filled with
    an inner peace.
    Purity and new insight reside in Me.
    I am
    reborn,
    restored and
    simply New!

    So nice to read you again. More than recognizing that a change needs to be put in place, but actually making any major changes to one's being is scary, all changes are, even if they're for the good. This read like a current page out of my life poet. This spoke to me. Flow on.

    Love and Insight mami.
    I'm glad that this was able to speak to you like it spoke to me once I finished writing it. Peace and Love to you.

    You described it perfectly Sister Gempis...this is beautiful! As I read it I invisioned a butterfly emerging from it's cocoon, spreading it's wings in the air to dry and looking at all the wonders of the world, with all it's possibilities...through new eyes.

    Great piece....

    Your ability to take words...and string them together, so beautifully...
    it's like seeing the "Nothern Lights"...and it consistently amazes me...

    ...I think I'm actually speechless
    this poem pulled at my deepest emotions
    and silenced my voice...

    the only thing left is my heart....
    beating in tune to the rhythm
    of your work...

    Loving it,
    Sage
