Face to Face


Face to Face

Eyes of fiery crimson
staring at the moon
in wonder and confusion

Intuition tip toes
into each heart
and fear
makes it clear

Now face to face
with fate and hate
it’s time to make a move

what it boils down
to
is
it’s you vs me
because we will not see
eye to eye

we need to co-exist
whether Lamb of God
or Tyger, Tyger

“In what furnace was thy brain?”
Face to Face with shame
Let the shelves of history books refrain
we decided to retire and not ignite the fire

We often forget our purpose
We often forget we are all a part of each other

Focus


Keep focused on what matters.
Keep focused on what matters. Melba Christie 2014

“Become a vessel for inspirational flow.” Focus on a world that will be peaceful and less violent everyday. The peace begins in your heart first. It was placed there by God. When others see, feel, and understand that peace lives inside of each of us, then they too will feel the flow.                                                          

– Melba Christie

“Occasionally I am reminded that perhaps I should write a poem.”


 

“Occasionally I am reminded that perhaps I should write a poem.” This statement prefaced a poem written by my daughter in an email she sent the other day. She has been writing poems since she was quite young.  I want to share it with you.

Words with others like it

to clear the mind and feed the rest.

Words hidden under a cloak of deception

yearning to be misread.

Words as simple as a flower’s petals

which bend over the anxiety of being so beautiful.

Words which help find meaning in the wells of uncertainty

as profound as an older man

delicately unfolding his morning paper.

 

A smile without the effort that stains it.

A poem like so many before it.

Intuition

Sometimes a feeling invades the senses

all at once

overwhelming the heart and soul

sometimes intuition

tickles you first

to get your attention

 

sometimes it injects you with energy

so powerful you cannot sleep

 

sometimes it tiptoes into your dreams

and allows you to slumber

 

but the feeling lingers for days

and you just can’t remember

why or what it is you should

understand

 

Sometimes it smacks you across the face

and when you look at yourself  in the mirror

you see a hand imprinted in deep red

and sometimes instead

it just walks up to you

and shakes your hand

and you suddenly understand

what you need to do

Your intuition knows how

to make this a better world

to value what matters most

to love life

to be still

and watch patiently

as a flower blooms in spring.

 

Painting Sadness


An artist looked deep

inside my broken heart

and tried to paint its sadness

but he knows

I rather hide my melancholy

behind fields of lavender

so instead my portrait is a

lonely landscape

filled with dreams

I have forgotten to chase

after

The artist looks at his

painting and sighs

with satisfaction.

Ironically,

it makes so many others

feel at peace.
