“Worth” (Poem) Word of The Day Challenge – River — Beckie’s Mental Mess

REBLOG: Please don’t miss Beckie’s beautiful poem! ❤

“Worth” (Poem) return to me, my love and beloved without you here I belong to the obscurity of shadows, deep, dark and, weighted down. I’m a prisoner held captive, chained and bound, sinking within the depths of the roaring river rapids. I fight not to drown but to stay afloat, with hopes of reaching the shores […]

and heavy with rain

rumbles a threat

Deep inside
my chest 

in my marrow 

A scream 
of lightening 
sets the sky 

Eyes turn 
to the heavens

The sky 
weeps tears 

Engorged sky 
spills over
salty and hot

Pray for 

A torrent
washes over me

The Stars Come Home — Stephanie Bennett-Henry

REBLOG:  Don’t miss Stephanie’s Brilliant piece!

Woman, made of spine, rooted deep where flowers grow, despite secrets long buried in the soil where ancestors died, holding their last breath like one last chance. Woman, made of strength where one tree started alone, branched out with hands reaching, holding, bending, to welcome the others to evolve and rupture into a forest that […]

Shade of My Sisters #writephoto

Lush and cool,
my bed this morn. 

The springing forth of new life
surrounds me. 

I am comforted
in it’s embrace. 

The coming night
holds no fear. 

For I am surrounded
by the Children of Earth,
and in the Shade of My Sisters.

The energy it takes
to pull my feet from this earth
seems insurmountable. 

Each step

I lift my head
seeing the sunlight
breaking through the darkness ahead. 

Just a sliver. 


I advance
determined to reach
the cloudless space.

A deep breath. 

My conviction

Fragments are found
somewhere deep inside.

Another step.

A small victory.

Another step.

I feel warmth
coming from the light.

One last step...

*All is well, my friends.  This post started out as something very dark but turned around for me. (I never know the path my muse will take.)  I think it says that the light IS peeking through for me.  As always, thank you for joining me on this journey. ❤ Penny
