The Sweet Balm Of Surrender…

I am bathed in serenity

In the sweet balm of surrender

To that which knows

From whence I came

   And why…

Rainy Days…

as I sit here at my window altar

gazing out at the river

watching the raindrops fall

I become aware of my role as

“Placeholder”

for

Divine Healing Energy

that moves

Backward and Forward

in

Time

healing the wounds of all the many

Bloodlines

that intersect within this

“Spacetime”

called

    “Toni Roberts…”

Fills me with

Insight

I release to

HER

All that which lay

Festering

and

Rotting

within

Dark and hidden corners of my heart

Waiting to become tomorrow’s

   Breast

Cancer

   Recurrence...

I gratefully and gracefully

Release

and

Bury

the

Old

Dead

Self

As I prepare to be

Born

   Anew

A Second Day Of Blazing Glory!

What a privilege

Indeed for

My eyes to so feast

Upon all this glory

Photo by Toni Roberts

What have I done to deserve it?

   Nothing more than breathing in and breathing out…

And even that is not done by the “i” who writes these words

Thank You

Whatever

Mother Nature?

For the glory upon which these eyes

   This day feast…

This exquisite view of the Hutchinson River

The Long Island Sound

And the ever-changing Wetlands

Never ceases to fascinate and enthrall

Day after day

Season after season

Year after year of my life

Witnessing

The shifts in my soul

That keep time with the changing seasons

Today is a day of honoring

Mother Nature as She

Signals the approach of

Death

In a wild and vivid display of

Outrageous Color!

You go, Girl!

Once Again At Another Fork In The Road…

Stock Photo

Do I go

Right?

And perhaps find myself once again

Walking the path of

Same ol’…Same ol’

Repeating the mistakes of yesteryear?

   Or…

Do I venture off to the

Left?

What does my heart say?

Which is the path that Spirit would have me tread?

I close my eyes and

Count to three

For this is a place of

Radical Trust

Where I must put aside all

Rational thought

and

   Allow my heart to direct my feet

   Step by very careful step

A Lesson Learned From Breast Cancer…The Great Messenger From The Soul…

Photo by Toni Roberts; "Childhood Memories"

“Childhood Memories” Photo by Toni Roberts

it’s a given

that when one is staring

Death in the face

one is more than willing to

go there

   you know…

that place to which we

jus’ ain’t goin‘”

but here’s the

good news

we don’t have to wait until

   our own demise is imminent…

and one disease or other

is hitting us

upside the head

with a 2 x 4

in order to finally

go there…

you can go there now

in the

bloom of health

and be not

devastated

nor

destroyed

by remembered horrors

endured by the

   wounded child…

   who remains…

   huddled in pain…

in a dark and hidden corner

of your heart…

A Day Of Thanksgiving…

I give thanks this day

As I reap the gifts of

SPIRIT

During this season of the

HARVEST

I am, indeed, enjoying a

CORNUCOPIA

Of

BLESSINGS

From past

LABOR

Thank you to

WHATEVER!

   I am, indeed, most

      GRATEFUL...

And Yet Another Lazy Day Of Cloud-Gazing…

What?

Get up, you say?

The kitchen floor needs mopping?

My work area is a jumbled confusion of

Unfinished projects that need tending to?

Summer’s gone, you say?

And it’s time for the

Seasonal closet switch from summer to winter garb?

Hold on a second!

Look at how those clouds shift lazily across the sky

   Creating beauty that brings tears to one’s eyes…

The kitchen floor can wait and I’ll switch the clothes tomorrow!

And this is my current creative project:

Cloud-gazing
