Resounding

Resounding

Follow truth when you feel it – no matter where it leads. Be brave.Be true to your center. Be you unapologetically and follow your heart.

Unfolding

Unfolding

Hearts are tricky things. Their emotional valves open and close spontaneously. How then can we control our reaction to the emotions as they flood through us or are held back? But what happens when the valves aren’t pushed open – when the heart opens of its own free will? Magic, serendipitous synchronicity. This is what I search for. The moment I open, and cannot resist doing so.

Desencontro

Desencontro

The boat launched
from a shore of awareness –
and I waiting at the sand
waved a goodbye to
something that never
could have been.

I titled this poem Desencontro – a Portuguese word meaning failure to meet, a disconnection, or discord. I love using words foreign to my native language, words that mean many things spoken in English but can be summed up in one word in another language.
