Nighttime Visitors

Nighttime Visitors

moon venus

Within the stillness of the morn
as I see four planets whispering
in the darkness came the answers
Through the cawing of the animals
Horse, crow, dolphin to start
the reclaiming of my power

By remembering my journey
The highs and lows
And lessons learned
Each adventure taught me wisdom
Time to understand and start to live
Some of the vulnerable aspects hidden
Behind the mask that I wear to disguise.

I know some of my gifts
I throw away because of fear
Knowing I just suppressed
A truth of magic that lives inside
Time, the animals whisper
To ride, fly and swim again
In full power
I know what to do
And fear isn’t a worthy excuse
Time, again… to live my magic

The music of my soul sings deep
With Master Whale
The storyteller and holder of records
Time…again
To sing my song
And release the depth of my powers wide
Dance with the fire
Burning inside of me
Aching to hear the truths
And simply be me again

The cycle comes and now
the wave takes me higher to see and hear
The clear messenger, Hawk as he circles
Death and life and let go and move further
With the help of the Great Mystery
Father Sun, Sister Moon, Mother Earth
breathe deeply and embrace the natural magic
Of all I am and always will be. ~jh

 

For the Love of Animals

Interesting when one comes to think
of the simple lessons learned
by the others around us
being family, friends or even enemies
but of all, it is those silent ones
the animals who we make family
also the closest of friends
the cats, dogs or even birds
lizards, rats or maybe its a ferret

Just a simple look
we tend to get the gist
of what they are saying
maybe the way they just lay
tells us the moods and intentions
playful, hunting or simply sleepy
hungry and even like us
craving a little attention from touching.

animals bring magic to us daily
a smile, a laugh, and inspiration…
through the silence of their beingness
I have learned to relax and I will be fine
stressing out just isn’t in their nature
so we human can learn a lot
from those two or four footed friends.
perhaps it’s time to realize that. ~jh

The Hug of Words

The Hug of Words

{unknown artist}

{unknown artist}

Words reach out like a hug
making the cold distance get closer
and warmer
the heart connection stronger
the reason for being more worthy

simple sayings
of gratitude,
of appreciation,
Of support,
Of love!

makes the tough times not so bad
helps with the seeming depth of darkness
somehow not so dark
that ray of light at the end
begins to shine within

the internet brings people together
in ways, that boggle the mind
yet we once had pen pals we wrote to
to bring the big world a little closer

sharing stories and simply being real
with that stranger out in the horizon
realizing we are mirrors
shining as a brilliant candle or star
in the darkness of living life

makes us breathe a little easier
knowing someone else understand
or is listening
making the bad times worth living
as we grow closer to our potential
because those words feel like a hug
making the cold world much warmer. ~jh
