What To Do Over the Holidays?
My blog writing has been quiet lately. A lot up in my world right now, a lot unsettled inside. Opening to it all and simply holding it without knowing what is next. Not moving into action, simply sitting with “I don’t know. Not easy to be in the mud and sometimes that is all there is.
One of the things that opened up in the last couple of months though is that poems started coming. I have never considered myself a writer, still don’t actually and absolutely couldn’t imagine myself writing poetry until it came.
A friend was sending me an image once in awhile and I would let the image resonate in me and then a flood of words would come. A lot of the poetry came based on events, moments in my life and other words just came up and out in a way I have never experienced before.
Its not great poetry but it is mine and I am going to share one here with you but before I do;
As you move into the “Season” that for me is truly about gratitude, connection, giving, peace, serving, loving…taking some time to ponder, to reflect on these questions could be a beautiful gift to give yourself and the world:
What is my passion?
What are my gifts and how do I bring them more fully into my universe?
What am I telling myself that gets in the way of moving towards wholeness, vibrancy, truth?
If you want to ponder these questions with some support give me a call and we can chat about working together. 541-389-0831
And here’s a poem:
Sometimes words come like
Noah’s flood, the torrent
can’t seem to be stopped.
Other times it’s a slow
drip like a leaky bathroom faucet.
Either way they arrive seemingly
out of nowhere, where
else would they come from?
That nowhere that is everywhere.
The way the light bathes that
spot of grass, the wind that moves
through those trees, the bird call
in the distance and that very
faint sound of vehicles
Like all words, all of it
arises out of nothing,
a chance moment,
like when you drop
a pebble into a
still pond. Like that.
Many Blessings to you and yours,
