Losing Me

Thus I emerge, wet, glistening

with dewy kiss of christening,

forget the past, soul free at last

and blink, now time is quickening. Continue reading Losing Me

I don’t know about you; but I’m going to keep trying to “phone home”.😊 And begs the larger question……. Is There Anybody IN There?

Flashback/Still Me

YEP..me That was my constant state at the age of sixteen.  Reflective, contemplative, dreamy.  I didn’t find out until years later that what others saw when they looked at me was “sad” or “unhappy” or, better yet, “stuck up”. That one was a personal favorite and it gave me quite a chuckle. What in the entire world would I ever have to be stuck up about, I wondered.  And how bizarre the game of perception is.  If only they knew how tortured I was to even look them in the eye, to have to stand up in a full classroom … Continue reading Flashback/Still Me

A Name for the Miracle/Forever Never/The Dawn of Illusion

Forever Never/The Dawn of Illusion by Cheryl KP  copyright 2014 You can find previous chapters under the Forever Never heading in the search bar to the side. The story continues….. When we left the Garden, the ceremony of celebration was underway, joined by the Creators, ALL of them, including the dark God Ar’tine, in the form of a magnificent wolf.  But not everyone is convinced of his transformation of Light as Dohman’s Mother joins the circle, angry to see her brother’s creation so close to the miracle of hope. Perhaps it was M’na’s desperate plea on behalf of the dark God or Mac’s act of defense … Continue reading A Name for the Miracle/Forever Never/The Dawn of Illusion

Rebirth/Poetry

Rebirth When, spreading my wings to the open sky I let the breath of God dry the dampness of birth from my body, I turn my face to the brilliance of Life, drink in its possibilities, disown my fear of leaving the womb And with a sudden rush of ecstasy, the wind whispers my name and sweeps me into the arms of freedom! Soaring, gliding to Nowhere, Somewhere, Everywhere- The Unknown. Cheryl KP copyright Continue reading Rebirth/Poetry

Cloak of Invisibility

Invisible Watching the parade and longing to ride, but stand in the shadows,  needing to hide. Wings are not clipped, so why not soar? Afraid to enter an opening door. Visibility to some the ultimate goal, to another the threat of losing their soul. Why seems it a sin to want only to live, to answer when called and with everything give? No production! No success! No fame! No coin! Just… quiet happiness. Making beautiful things for their own sake, not to barter or sell but any may take. Invisible I am in a crowded place, for they look right … Continue reading Cloak of Invisibility
