where creative minds can interact


I step into the night, fleeing what I cannot see

Carrying candle lit to light my darkened way

Heart beating words of hope

That your light will pull me like

The moth

I pray

I run

I hide

I step into the night, fleeing what I will not see

Carrying my life as if I know my way

Heart skipping beats as

Fear chews up my faith

And darkens

And hides

And sways me away

From life and sweetness of


I step into my fright, seeing what I know

Carrying my faith to clear my way

Heart soothing my chaffed soul

As your Divine Love

Pulls me like the




I step into Me

thank you Carissa :-) It is freeing when we just let ourselves go poetically! Glad you enjoyed my piece ... maybe one day I will be a fluent as you!

Indeed, it is fun to paint with words. ;) I can be inspired by just about, nature, people, events, just random thoughts, etc and it's exhilarating and freeing to be able to express one's self that way. Nice piece, enjoyed reading it.

i write poetry once in a very long while too. i have to sit down and decide to do it, though. and it's hard to find time to say "ok i think i'll write a poem now". but we need to do it. i have two poems on here on my blog space if you haven't seen them. but i don't really think of myself as a poet. but you're right. it's a wonderful way to pain with words! i might try again soon now that you've inspired me!

Thank you Lisa :-) I appreciate the encouragement. Years and years ago all I did was write poetry. I have several reams of poetry floating around this place/world! One of my goals is to reach deep inside myself,  drawing upon that long forgotten well and retrieve genuine "me" ! Poetry is a tricky, beautiful form of painting with words :-)
