Wild Woman

The Amrita Connection

A wild woman is magical.
She oozes a charm that is rare.
She lives free, and seeks awareness.
She undresses your soul with her mind,
And, helps you see the magic in chaos.
If you try to tame her, she will intimidate you.
She belongs to no one except herself.
And, yet she gives a piece of her heart
To everyone that she crosses paths with.

My Michigan dream…


My Michigan dream….

“Hush my sweet baby, don’t you cry. I am here ,I shall never leave you, when the chills of the night come, I shall keep you warm and safe. You are my love, my reason to dance upon the earth.”

She knew the language of the sea, she knew the language of the grassy fields and she knew the language of the flesh.

She awoke my wintry heart with her emerald eyes and how she frolicked with the Lake Huron waves.

She was a carefree wonder and a miracle, making my slumberous heart learn to sing again.
Lovely-may, lovely may-not, lovely be kind.
My lady of the lake made my lovelorn woes become distance and faraway.
I gave her wildflowers for her hair and I told her. She was my earnest wish and she made me want a glorious life, a everlasting wish of happiness in her…

Dice (Time & Chance)

The WordSmith ♠️

The first time his eyes met hers
Certainty clouded his mind, he knew
He knew this was it, no hide and seek
But how did he really know?
He says he just did

The first time his hand met hers
Doubts were no where near
He felt a current wave in the right direction
How did he really feel these things?
He says he just did

The first time he made contact with her warmth
He had no reason to be unsure of the things he felt
George Benson and Roberta Flack played in his mind
Why did he think the lyrics provided certainty?
He says he just did

The first time she smirked at him
Joy and relief swept through the streets of his heart
All he wanted to feel till infinity was this
How sure was he that this was it?
He says he just did

I guess…

Blank Page

Come and Enjoy this from Cynthia!

Becoming and Beholding

Facing a blank page

waiting for inspiration

is akin to the early morning hours –

when no one else is up,

not even the sun.

Its newness and freshness

has a daunting yet hopeful quality.

I simply love the mornings.

And now I am learning to love

the empty page.

Just like each day,

there are times

when I falter,

filling the white space with nonsense

and disappointing myself.

But when creativity shows up,

when I am engaged in the flow

of divine connection,

nothing else matters.

I have found Presence

once again.

If only each moment

could be like this!

And then I remember,


Each moment can.

I just need to stay awake

and get out of my own way.

Just Me, the Stars, and Hope

Becoming and Beholding

I like to get up before the sun does.

It is a kind of race

to greet the day first, for

being alone in the stillness of the morning

fuels me.

When I walk in the quiet

of my slumbering neighborhood,

and I can look up at the moon

and the stars,

and feel the crisp morning air

on my sleepy skin,

I am like a wakening flower bud.

I open to the promise

of a new day –

of being in fresh light.

I am a rare creature, I know.

Few would take the covers off so early

to brave the chill.

But me? I just get some coffee in me,

bundle up, and go.

It is the most liberating time of my day –

for yesterday has been filed away…

and it is just me, the stars,

and hope.

So, I lift up my voice

and sing, joining…

The Girl With a Dream

Shiny Objects

The empties are all around us

They walk and talk like confidence

But that is simply to fool us

People consumed by pettiness

They care more for appearance

The newest style,

The coolest friends,

Love to them is not happiness

When the mask falls down

She is shrunken, unhappy

Her life wasted tricking the world;

But that was the mask

She did nothing for herself,

Only the mask

And the master of the mask is really the slave

And the mask has friends

And the mask has faith

And the mask has joy

And she has none

And the mask is pretty

And the mask is tough

And the mask is perfect

And she is not

She cloaks herself in happiness;

Takes pride in prettiness

But the boys care not for her soul

Just the package in which she comes

And her friends care not for her

Just the weight…

The Amrita Connection

Every time you feel broken,
Think of yourself as unfinished,
A first draft of a mystery novel
Whose plot twists can be edited
A hundred times over before
The final version is published.

What if you could rewrite everything
And, imagination is your only hindrance?
Indulge in that day dreaming.
If your mind cannot conceive
The life that you want
How do you expect the Universe
To conspire and make it happen?

You may not have felt seen yet.
You may not have felt heard yet.
You may not have loved your deepest yet.
You may not have lived everywhere yet.
The key word is yet.

You are the creator of your own destiny.
It may take you more time
To arrive at your masterpiece,
But, don’t let it not happen
Because you don’t believe in yourself yet.
Because you haven’t surrendered
Your spirit to it yet.

Beauty comes from…
