Muse Mondays-Poetry

ben  saphiro muse quote

This is the first of my weekly poetry feature ~ MUSE MONDAYS~ which has been quite popular on Facebook.

Poetry is the voice of my soul.

I have been writing poetry for over 20 years.  Like yoga, it is a sacred space where I flow, following the trail of words, of my soul speaking through my pen.

It is so much a part of me that I want to share it here for all to see.  May it inspire you to follow the voice of your own soul.

This is ME, wild, raw, unleashed, free…

i am becoming
have i become?

letting go
being here and now
at one with it all

these are new eyes
not rose-colored glasses
rainbows everywhere
i could not see

looking back
kept me locked in a place
that was no longer mine

kept me reaching for
what is not yet mine

there is fullness
i am here
