Dawn breaking

~~~

She looked at herself in the mirror
and shimmied a little, smiling at her
wan face, saying, “you look lovely!”
As though in apology to her own
reflection that didn’t smile back.
But replied in her head, “you liar!”
Her heart dropped into her belly,
that sea of tremulousness. “I love you,”
she cried in desperate defiance.

“You sentimental fool!” Old, hazy
voices rose from forgotten graves.
“You are not real.” She railed at
their fuzzy persistence. “Who do
you think you are?” Old shame
surfaced like dirty foam. “You’re
lies I believed for far too long.”
“Don’t delude yourself.” “I am
truth. I am light. I am pure love.”

She leaned toward her reflection
blurred through the tears, kissed
it. Her lover, her eternal friend.
It glowed and grew. It smiled back
through the misty glass. The sun
rose from the sea of grey, lifted
her heart, gave it wings. Light
pulsated through her veins, “Hello
Sunshine!” Her eyes twinkled back.

  1. I like the positive attitude in the end ~ Our self talk must be uplifting and full of confidence ~ I know its easy to indulge in negative self talk but we must walk away from it ~ Enjoyed this one ~

  2. Oh the beauty.. the fountain of youth
    is all feeling.. all else
    is illusion..
    close one’s
    eYes and see
    Truth and Light
    comes as REAL..

    keep moving.. connecting
    creating.. feel JUST FEEL…:)
    WORDS ARE NEVER EVER now..
    ENOUGH.. smiles.. Heaven NOW..:)

C'mon, don't be a silent spectator ....
