12 Nights Of Solstice..Night 5

Night Five’s meditation found me outside once again, in hopes of seeing some of the media shower…unfortunately cloud cover prevented me from seeing anything….

Over at JourneyPathInstitute  Cat’s invitation to activate your vision in a new way, from a new perspective was my inspiration … as well as this poem I came across and needed to share.

 

Winds of Change

When I chose to confine myself in my self constructed shell

I had been wilting

After having suffered through droughts

And floods

And lack of minerals!

Why, like Sleeping Beauty

I remained enclosed

Cut off from the rest of the world

Choosing to let myself twirl

In the many layers of my dreams

Hoping that I do get lost in these

So that I may forget about my reality

That of being, a wilted and scarred lily!

But then, one night, the moon started dancing

With such grace and exuberance

That the wolves howled with pride and confidence

And leaves shook with unexplained frenzy

Why, the winds have changed!

They brought with them, alterations to my planned confinement

My shell blew apart

Leaving me, confused and perplexed

To admire the moon’s dance

And to let the wolves’ howls drown my senses!

Pray, the winds have changed

As they no more wished to see me confined

The winds have changed

As they desired it that I love the mundane plane

Yes, Mother Earth and the Goddess of Life

Are not to be blamed for any of those mishaps

That broke me!

The winds have changed

As they wanted me to open my heart,

Filter through them to reach their warmth

And let it submerge my frail essence

In its twisting love kaleidoscope!

Pray, winds of change come to knock me down

Willing me to get back up

Lower my guards

Throw away my swords

And ride the wolves

To there where I am awaited

There, wherever that may be

There, wherever fate will it to be!

Pray, the winds of change

Kissed my soul

And like Sleeping Beauty

I woke up, only to embrace

My new reality!

Anoucheka Gangabissoon’s Winds Of Change

I discovered a new app to play with and came up with this creation….I superimposed a photo of myself onto the purple background and then added the dragonflies…..a new way for me to get creative….
