The Elusive Souls

The Sisters of the Fey

Dare to Capture the Elusive Souls?

Standing stones of antiquity … prehistoric vintage…

What hands fashioned this fantasy on earth?

What type of man and woman with ancient lineage

Knew how to create the energy and give birth

To a masterpiece of rock and nature

To fill the minds of evolved beins for all eternity?

They who ventured forth to find and nurture

The natural essence of relearning so as to see

The life of gods and goddesses,

Who once lived upon this planet

Before time and reason vanquished priestesses

Of the otherworldly amongst the gamut…

Surrealism, wizardry, soothsayer,

Magick, druidism, and worship…

Faith of water, sky, soil, and fire

By divine deities who flourished,

Secreted in our world:

No longer remembered or nourished

By nature’s abundance and song.

Where have the elusive souls gone?

The Ultimate Unknown…

Icons from yesteryear. A life lost too soon in the rush of days.

As children the passage of time seemed endless and slow like dripping wax. Now we blink our eyes and everything has changed. Even a happy medium would allow us to catch our breath before being hurled into the unknown again.

I stopped fighting today …

I stopped fighting today

Usually when people say

I let go

It means something sad or bad

I stopped trying to control everything

I stopped doubting everything

I stopped being weak

Which I perceived as strong

I was wrong

Now I can seek

The Blessings of life

So many have been sent my way

A fresh start

A new heart

Bathed in the glory of the Almighty

I’m more stubborn than most

My ego was always in the way

And then I learned that “humble” was more than a word.


I stopped fighting today

And got out of my own way

My own worst enemy

My eyes can finally see

HE who died for me

Seems like I’ve done this

So many times before

But I was always fighting

For what I thought was right

Now I know, you just have to believe

In the glory of heaven and HIS purpose for me

I did not know peace until…

I bought clothes today…

Such a mundane, boring rue

Women do it all the time

I guess guys do too

But I did it today

And I don’t have to say


But, it means I’ve decided to live

That’s the message I give…

One month of 2019 has come and gone…

black calendar close up composition
The calendar marches on

 New Year Is Upon Us…

We can only hope we learn something as each year goes by.

We age, of course, look for answers, seek wisdom, work, strive…

To be happy, healthy, and whole.

We want what’s best for our family and friends, truth be told.

We look to the past to plan for the coming days,

Not knowing how things can change in a thousand ways.

We want things to get better; we want to achieve great dreams…

But we can’t see the future or rewrite the past, it seems.

So we’re left with hope, a positive outlook, and our beliefs

To bring us joy, accomplishment, relief.
