May they come out of the shadows
DATE PUBLISHED: 14 February, 2022
This collection of poems came as a surprise to me.
When something is easy, brings joy and excitement I do more of it and that is what happened here. Poetry has been a life-long pleasure, but usually as a reader. I have dabbled in writing private pieces before, then these came.
Sometimes, there is a meeting of two people that changes everything.
This book is a result of one of those times. The words coming through on the music of a guitar; the notes and melodies acting as a muse; the song as an anchor to hold onto while playing with the creative force that is available to all of us. It opened a channel for me and the words dropped onto the page. Most times, I felt vulnerable to read them, let alone share them, but here they are for you.
My work in the world has always been the work of the heart and of the soul, connecting people to a deeper truth of themselves. Helping people to remember that they are connected to something wonderful and vast. Opening them up to their inner spiritual power. This book is another vehicle for that intention of my life.
May it remind you of your own heart’s strength.
Awake but still asleep,
My dream pulls at my mind.
A door appears inviting me to find my way
This space so far unknown,
A place of growth and of change.
Where there is a crone,
A wise woman bent over, grey-haired and kind.
She looks at me nodding,
She’s been waiting for a while.
I heard her whisper years ago.
“Sarah,” she said, “it is time.”
I shook her words away from me,
I ran, closed down, denied.
But as the time ticks on,
Its straight line pointing true.
There came this day
When I wanted more
Of me, of us, of you.
She holds my life and all I’ve learned
And mixes it you see
With everything there has ever been
In you, in us, in me.
The child within has found her home
The girl has settled down.
The mother is someone I know well
And I wear the goddess gown.
And now I wait, awake yet still asleep
For the crone to pass her crown.
