no one

like a tree
that never fully opens
I am
to reach for the sky

some days
the winds
sing to me
let go
come with us

it is then
the tears of storm
make my already
too strong roots
sink even deeper

for I am earthed

no thing
can ever
be like the wind

to dream dance

and now
I’ve forgotten how

head down
arms crossed
eyes closed

dig me out
from under
and remind me…

who I am

    Oh my dear Shar
    This one is so sad. I really felt the sorrow in this one.
    head down
    arms crossed
    eyes closed

    To be soo rooted to the ground makes it so unbearable. Tomorrow your pretty little leafs will fly upwards.
    Love you

    Image that I was feeling such a profoundly similar soul-slipping space while listening to Spark and I opened your poem that was sitting in PPM’s moderation. Can you feel the chills that have arrested my spirit? I wish I could dig you out, Shar, but all I can offer you are my cupped hands to give you a boost up. Know that you are cherished and rooted to something larger. Great expression of the depths of such emotions. xox

  • incredible shivers when I read your comment and watched the video (so many times). wow, really freaked me out. and such a beautiful, understanding and comforting offer of friendship. more appreciated than I could ever express. you are so special and mean so much to me. sending love and hugs and thanks from the deepest part of me. ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

    Oh, you are a wonderful person who knows exactly who she is. You were made for a purpose and a plan from a Creator, Who never makes mistakes in His designs. Gosh, if we didn’t have feelings like this from time to time, we wouldn’t be for real! I’ve been having lots of doubts myself lately, but God gave me my spring back in my step again. Life is a roller coaster ride!
    Great writing!!! Always a pleasure reading them, you make me think!

  • so sorry for the delay in responding. such a beautiful and compassionate comment. your understanding means so very much to me, as does your honesty. you are a joy to know, and I am lucky to have your friendship. thank you from my heart. so much love to you precious friend. xoxoxoxooxoxoxoxoxoxoxxooxoxox

    You are a warm, open honest woman with a darker down side that fuels your compassion. You are Shar! And that is all you ever have to be.

  • apologies for my late reply. your avatar makes me feel like I better listen…or else! lol
    and, yes about that darker side that has found its way into me the last year or so. it comes and goes with life’s ups and downs. normal I suppose, not so sure. thank you for those beautiful words that lift me up,
    and i love you too dear friend. :)) xoxoxoxoxoxooxoox
