Gentle Poetry

Written November 8, 2012

A butterfly hanging upside down
Spirits coming down to let us know
To pay attention
See red peppers grow
And chase your girl with a cane
Has it been this long?
How could you tell?
Your grey hair and not running as fast
Look at the butterfly
Upside down
Happy little guy he’s ok hanging
Upside down
Spirits come with butterflies
What spirit is around?
Pay attention to who’s talking to you
Find your upside down butterfly
Then you will know who I am
Don’t cry
I’m here for you
And I will find a butterfly
Upside down butterfly for you

Monika in PinkHow I Feel About Love

If it was my last breath,
I would want to feel yours on my face.

If this was my last minute,
I would want to taste your kiss.

If I had five minutes,
I would want your body wrapped around mine.

Given an hour, day or years,
I would repeat my life with you.

Breath at the time, I want to feel you in all of mine.

I found peace in one breath at the time.
I found happiness between each one.

That’s all there truly is.
Breath after breath and how I feel in between. (more…)

My shadow a faithful and a patient friend
Always there to the very end.

The silent observer of my life
Who never leaves when I fall apart.

My shadow doesn’t cry when I’m sad.
My shadow never laughs when I’m glad.

The best of friends will always be
My shadow and me.

No fear I say. But I don’t hear.
No fear I repeat. But I don’t listen.
Is there a reason to be afraid?
I ask.

What I create is following me
giving the answers to what I fear. (more…)

The thousandth step taken for the first time.
How could it be, how could it feel so new.

The road taken so many times
with feelings never the same. (more…)

Dreamed many times before of things that could be,
Imagining the beautiful life I would live.

Played in the sand and felt the touch of the sea,
Crying in hope to find the one for me. (more…)
