Belief hasn’t been an issue.
I’ve seen enough of the unseen to know.
Faith that You CAN? You are Amazing God!
Those seeds of doubt I did not sew.
I surveyed my own worth,
And that’s where it began…
“BUT WILL HE FOR you?”
A sinister meditation,
With one implication,
Through constant replication,
Filled with guilt and condemnation,
Straining air and circulation,
If only I hadn’t listened,
I’d of held my position,
There’d have been no competition,
For my time and attention,
Communion, each days’ intention,
With The God of all creation,
Not a spiritual vacation,
Standing on my power- an illusion,
Lacking faith, hope or vision…
Thanks for holding on when I didn’t,
I’ve missed Your presence, Your Power,
It could have been different… perhaps,
If I hadn’t drifted so long.
Not remembering WHO You ARE,
Or who i am, because of the Cross.
My heart is once again open,
Scales have fallen from my eyes.
I seek to follow You closely,
And live in Your grace-filled light…
I pray You help me,
In Jesus’ name, Amen

Between the what if’s…
That magical dimension,
Akin to delusions or psychoses.
Where one holds to a tiny thread of subjective reality,
A confirmed impossibility,
Only in the realm of gentle probability,
From the mind of one, single, beautiful, intelligent, creative, unique, human being…

Superficial light, I believed you were true.
I was even sure it was you who shone through.
My spirits were lifted, hope was acquired
Dreams were envisioned, my heart was inspired.
But when night descended, upon my tiring spirit.
You fell into shadows, and luminance was lifted.
You were a falseness, a snake, a mask to eclipse.
Fiction placed craftily on the cusp of darkness.

Activated by the tears of momentary regret and hopelessness.
Spaces between are the clarity of needed renewal,
and the brilliant light of optimistic potential.
My crashing life held in tact by both the real and illusory branches of the shedding trees.
There is motion.
I am part of this moving ecosystem.
The rhythmic echoes sustain me.
The live mirror is life.
I am alive.
And I will move forward.
The Obvious and The Hidden is one of my favorite blogs to follow. The titles that are applied to his amazing photography are perfection! I was searching through the history, since it’s been a good while that I’ve been on wordpress, and I went to May 10th- my sobriety date (2014). Note: this photo may be found in 2015. I was moved to remember that day and combine it with the success of today when writing this piece- a little over 17 months clean/sober and feeling great! I kind of dropped off wordpress at that time. Which is crazy!!! My, how time flies!! I was soooo active before. Miss all you guys. Trying to jump back in. Peace to you all.
The warm outstretched tendrils,
Arrayed to adorn.
Drawing the soul ever forward,
Promising safety and warmth.
Illumination for life’s paths,
Piercing the darkness with authority.
Captivating in its effortless genius,
God’s awesome “Let there Be”…
