Siren Song

No regrets

fullsizeoutput_17a

an end that came too soon

full stop on a sentence

beginnings

a storied introduction

mix of joy and pain

knowledge found in a glance

soul an open book

eyes

reflections of this woman

needs, desires

unknown, unacknowledged

without exploration, risk

a voice would have remained

still

silent

no regrets in chances

taken, a belonging

monotone shadow lived

beneath

cast off

each day painted vivid hues

continue to resonate

The call of the deep

img_4782

She has the ocean within her.

The call of the deep

stirring her senses,

urging her

to boldness.

Like the wild surf

surging

through her veins,

to risk

to chance

to live

to love.

Bearing the weight

FullSizeRender4

Not undertaken lightly

she knows the risk to her heart

to give so much of herself away

to trust implicitly

to let go and immerse herself in another.

But it is the undeniable pull

the lure of this siren song

from deep within her

that found meaning

with words spoken from his lips.

In uncovering herself

she has laid her soul bare

vulnerable to wounding

but open to the myriad of possibility

that she can now see upon her horizon.

She reflects daily on her path

and always finds herself at the beginning.

Saying yes

to him.

Risk

FullSizeRender

Facts.

Instinct.

Risk.

Faith.

The precarious balance when we make choices.

When you know

deep within

something you can’t explain

you just know…

A faith born of intuition

of instinct

puts you on a course of joy or sorrow

unknown to you.

That is when you take a chance

on what you feel

on what might actually be true.

You roll that dice.

You cash in your chips.

You go

all in.

Risk it all. 

For what you know

deep down to your soul

is worth the risk.
