My Loving Presence

My Loving Presence
By: Linda A. Long

I offer you
My loving presence
As a soft
Place to land
For your soul
To find comfort
After a long week
Rest with me
In the warmth
Of our Blue Love

I offer you
A love without expectations
It asks nothing more
Than for you
To be
The best version
Of who you are
And for you to reach
The greatest potential
Of your soul
I want
My loving presence
To inspire you
To be
The reflection of
God’s finest Intention
As you strive for
The highest good
For your soul

I offer you
A kindred spirit
A soul who understands
The nuances
Of a soul’s struggle
Between
Holding on and letting go
I understand
A soul
Wanting more
While accepting less
I know how it feels
For a soul
To Dream
Of a lover
In the quiet moments
And whisper
Whisper in depths of silence
To find comfort
In the connection
Of their spirits

I offer your
Heart refuge
From the harsh
Realities of
Living up to
Expectations
And honoring commitments
Yet knowing
My love
My loving arms
Are only
A reach away

My loving presence
Asks nothing of you
Yet
I still
Hold space
For our love
Shaded Blue
To match
Your beautiful
Blue eyes

I offer you
Nothing more
Than a
Loving presence
In your life
For you to
Count on
Rest in
And hold on to
In the lonely moments
When our souls
Miss the familiar
Light radiating from
Heart to heart
When our eyes
Connect

Bask in the glow
Of the
Beautiful light
I hold for you
Bask in the glow of
My loving presence
Bask in the glow
Of my love

NOTE Writing poetry, especially love poetry for Blue Love, is a spiritual practice for me. It sets free my heart. It balances my spirit and it allows me to express myself in words of love. Having spiritual practices that are authentic and honor the true fabric of your soul is important part of maintaining holistic wellness.

Stay – A Love Poem
By: Linda A. Long

Stay
Won’t you
Please
Stay
In my
World
Won’t you
Please
Remain
In my experience
And color
My world
With the blue
Of your
Beautiful eyes

Stay
Open the
Doors
To the parts
Of my heart
I closed
A long time ago
Open them
Simply with
Your presence
And the connection
My soul
Feels to yours
In those
Moments when
We look
Each other
In the eye
It’s as if
A quiet
Recognition
Of understanding
Happens
It’s in those moments
When your eyes
Meet mine
I feel peace

Stay
Won’t you
Please stay
Stay
In my atmosphere
And use
The fire
Of my soul
To spark your
Own evolution
Find your
Power
Through my
Love
And
Source
Your own soul’s
Awakening
In the dark brown
Comfort of my eyes
That are
Filled with
Love and affection
For you

Stay
Won’t you
Please
Stay
See me
All of me
See what
I hide
From others
Understand
My history
Touch my pain
Empathize with
The heartache
I’ve endured
And
Witness
My triumph
As I
Rise
As I rise
Over the
The limiting beliefs
Of those around me
To believe
In myself
And trust myself
Enough to
Risk failure

Stay
Won’t you
Please
Stay
In my life
I need you
To stay
Won’t you
Please stay

Love Quote

Are you growing?

Art health coaching writing

I feel like I need to write about my day today. My head feels like it’s going to explode with new knowledge. I am writing about this today not as a journal entry but as an exploration of growth. I am growing. From a Integrative Nutrition Health Coaching standpoint, the type of growth I am experiencing crosses between the career and spiritual aspects of my life.

Yes, it was a new career opportunity that pushed me to leave the comfort zone but I did it because the opportunity spoke to my soul. It felt almost like a “calling”. I go where I am called.

My whole day today was turned upside down in work today but it worked out perfectly. I was having a hard time focusing this morning. I didn’t sleep well. I drew out my thoughts on my white board which helped clear space and gave me a plan for the day. By 8am found out my meeting with my Program’s Sponsor was postponed because she couldn’t leave DC. My morning was freed up👍

I decided to focus on Outreach but I was having a hard time drafting the email. I put it down & went to a meeting. When I came back the words flowed. I clicked send. Guess what? Within two minutes a Professor I emailed wrote me back. YAY 😀 They are interesting in collaborating and he wants to send students from his school to attend our STEM event in May. OMG! YAY 😁 That one little exchange gave me a tremendous amount of encouragement, hope and inspiration. Then I knew what to do next. I made my outreach list and will contact some each day 👍I had to struggle through the first contact to figure out how to move forward with the rest.

My afternoon opened up by a cancelled meeting so a coworker took me on a tour of the Aviation Structure and propulsion’s research areas😂 I learned propulsion means thrust; it’s energy😉😂😂 The goal of the tour was to learn the research requirements and what college majors/degrees would be best for our internships. Then I’ll target MSI schools with those capabilities. It was a success and interesting. My brain is full of words and concepts I don’t understand but I am also full of hope and inspiration. This is my third week in this new job and I feel like I started making progress!

Someone actually asked me today if I would be going back to my home organizing after this temp assignment is over😂😂 I laughed. I’ve only been in this job for like a minute. Give me some time, would ya? 😂I have almost a whole year to go. I have no idea what I’m going to do. All I know is I’m doing this NOW and I like it for NOW👍However, I have decided to keep an open mind and not plan to stay or plan to go. I am just going with the flow right now. I am working my best for the organization I am currently working in, learning a lot, stretching my skills and GROWING👍When the time comes, I will once again and go wherever my soul calls me. That may be my home org, it could be where I am now or it may be somewhere completely new. I am open to whatever the Universe has to offer me and manifests for me. I am open to anything. I will let the Universe lead my way.

The last couple of weeks I’ve been voting every day for a young woman who is pursuing a dream and who also wants to grow. I gave a donation the first time I voted which pushed her into first place. I see now she is in second place today and there is only 27 hours left to vote. I decided I am going to wait until last minute to vote tomorrow night. If she is still in 2nd place, I’ll buy her some additional votes and make an ANONYMOUS donation to Be Positive hoping to push her into First Place again just before the voting closes. I am strategically going to buy the additional votes right before voting closes so her competition does not get a chance to see it and can’t buy more. Well, that’s the strategy anyway. I am doing it because I like to support people who pursue their dreams and and also want to grow. Hopefully, my strategy works and she ends up in first place at midnight. I’ll buy the votes/donation – if she needs it – ANONYMOUSLY as to not draw any attention to myself 😉 I probably should have done that the first time.

My only bummer this week is that I went to the Dentist for a cleaning and found out I have an infected pocket under a tooth. The good news is no root canal but they did inject an antibotic under the tooth that will stay there ten days 🙄 It’s making nauseous 😦

Lastly, I’ve been seeing 222 and 2222 EVERYWHERE for four days now. I think my angels and guides are trying to tell me to chill the F OUT, have a little faith and patience. Everything is working out just fine 😇

NOTE

This the last day of my four day weekend. My biweekly day off at work got switched to Fridays so I ended up with a four day weekend. I was pretty busy Friday and Saturday. I started slowing down a bit yesterday. Today I am focusing on relaxing and taking care of my mind,body and spirit.

I started the day with breakfast a the local cafe. A friend was working so I ate at the counter and chatted with her. I then walked three miles and got my food and clothes ready for work tomorrow. Then I did a short yoga and meditation practice followed by painting with watercolors. Painting with watercolors is new to me. I’ve only been doing it for about a year or so. I do it freehand. I could probably use a class or two to learn some techniques. I did the below watercolor today. I would not say this one is frame-able but the lips in the heart does tell a story about speaking from the heart.

After the art was done, I wrote the above poem. I believe I create my life with my thoughts and through prudent courageous actions. I also enjoying creating art and poetry. It feeds my soul. I’ll probably end my day by watching a movie.

How did you feed your soul today?

Doing things that nourish your spirit can help improve your holistic wellness and even improve your health.

Ruby Red Lips – Blue Love Poetry
By: Linda A. Long

Ruby Red
The ruby red
Impression
Of my lips
Stains your body
As a reminder
Of where
The heat of my lips
Met the warmth
Of your skin
Branding you
With my lipstick
Coloring you
With my
Lust and desire
Painting you
Red with Love
Red
Passionate love
As I kneel
Before you
I look up
Into the
Crystal blue eyes
That speak
To my soul
See me
See me
As if
I stand naked
Before you
Your eyes
See me
Opening my
Heart
To the heat
Of erotic desire
That wets
My center
I kneel
At your feet
On this Valentine’s Day
As your gift
I give you
This gift
Of my words
Written for you
In the Ruby Red
Stain of my
Lipstick
Across your chest
As a trail
Down to
Your manhood
I leave my mark
I mark you
With my love
Brand you

Our souls
Are connected
With a red thread
Without end
I revolve with you
In my thoughts
As your
Fire burns
In my soul
And ignites
The passion
Of creative expression
From my being
Intuitively
My heart
Hears yours
I answer the call
With these words
As your
Valentine’s gift
That I will
Write with
My lips
I will write
I love you in
Ruby Red Lipstick
Across your body
Ending on
The tip of your
Manhood
I sign my name

NOTE:
I ask you… On this Valentine’s Day who lights up your soul? Express yourself; let them know they stoke your fire. If you can’t see or talk to them today, use the power of your intuition to spiritually connect the Red Thread from your heart to theirs. Nourish each other with the food of the soul through the power of your intention and intuition. Physical proximity does not indict the strength of a connection or a bond. Intuition and Spirit connects us telepathically to those we love. Trust your intuition. Feed your spiritual connections today and tug on the red thread between you and those you love.

Having a practice the nourishes your spirit can help improve your holistic wellness and even improve your health.

Eye Of The Soul – Poetry

Eye Of The Soul Watercolor by Linda Long

Eye Of The Soul – Poetry
By: Linda A. Long

Looking within
My soul
I found you
Standing there
As if you were
Waiting for me
Waiting for me
To see you
I wandered away
From you
I was complacent
And eventually
Lost touch
With the fabric
Of my own soul
I heard the whispers
From inside
I just wasn’t ready
To listen
I saw
The truth
Behind the lie
I was living
Every day
I knew
I sold my soul
For a paycheck
And security
I walked around
For while
In complete
Brutal consciousness
Of what I lost
And what
I was becoming
But I was afraid
Afraid to let go
The grass
Isn’t always greener
I made
One excuse
After another
Until my body
Broken down
As if throwing
The gauntlet down
In front of my soul
Forcing me
To rise over the fear
Making me see
My body wasn’t
Breaking down
Out disease or illness
It was breaking
Down
Because my mind
Body and spirit
Were no longer
In harmony
The negative chaotic
Energy that surrounded
Me daily
Caused me constant
Agitation
The overwhelming
Negative chaotic
Energy in my work
Environment was
Holistically unhealthy
For me
But I was still
Still unsure
Of my next steps
And then
One day
It was clear
I gathered my courage
From my blue eyed
Inspiration
I took a deep breath
And
Jumped into
The eye of my soul
I started to see
Things clearly
I started to understand
That this
Opportunity was special
Created just for me
And if I wasn’t open
To receiving it
I may never
Get another one
And over time
Every obstacle
Was eliminated
And I flowed
Effortlessly
Towards my soul’s
Calling
Unsure where
This will take me
I surrender to the
Creation process
And live
Live my life
From the
Eye of my soul
Seeing life
Living life
As my soul
Directs me
I am finally free
I am free
I live my life
Through the
Eye of my soul
I am finally free

ART “Eye Of The Soul” is my own original watercolor

NOTE After my first week in my new job, I can say for sure my new work environment will be holsitically healthier for me than the one I left. I am highly motivated to make my Program a success so I can stay with this new group 🙂

I am sensitive. I’ve always been sensitive to noise, people’s emotions and especially energy. Lately, especially the last year, my sensitives have grown with my intuition. Honestly, The collective energy of the group/work environment I left shifted and it is NOT balanced or stable. It feels too chaotic. It’s in constant motion and that is not healthy for an organziation. My new work environment is calmer, healthier and quite honestly people do not have as much access to me in this new role. Also, I am vision setter in this new role. I have an opportunity to really do something amazing in the “company”.

As I reflect on how I got here, I am grateful for inspiration and courage I got from Bluelove to step out of the comfort zone and pursue this opportunity. I feel like I am finally working in alignment with my soul💙🦋 I am finally seeing life through the eye of my soul. For me, it was learning about Integrative Nutrition Primary Foods that helped me make the connection.

I took my third test at IIN today and passed. We are moving into our last Quarter in school. Most of the nutritional education is over and we are now focusing on Primary Food, coaching skills and business development. Since I do already have a full time job, I plan to only do coaching as my part time job. I also decided to focus my coaching on Primary Foods, Life Coaching and Holistic Wellness instead of nutrition(diet) health counseling. The coaching skills I am learning are actually going to help me at my full time job too 🙂 I am looking forward to graduation in May. It will be nice to be done school and get that off my plate.

Writing Poetry Is My Soul Food – Health Coaching

Mermaid Ocean Heart Love Bluelove Are you in touch with your soul? Can you hear it when it tries to talk to you? Do you recognize the voice within you urging to care for yourself on a deeper level?

For me, the voice of my soul often expresses itself through the written word. I write… I write because my soul needs me to write. My soul especially loves to express itself through poetry. I have been writing poetry since I was 15 years old. It is very soothing me to write my thoughts and feelings out in free verse.

Love poetry, especially, is my passion. Nothing inspires me to write more than feeling a deep connection to a man. Over the course of the last 35 years of my life, I have written poetry for a few men but none have compared to the depth and breadth of my Bluelove collection. In writing poetry for Bluelove, I truly found my voice as poet and as a woman. By writing poetry for Bluelove, I learned about myself and deepen my ability to love without conditions or expectation. By writing for him I have deepen my connection to my own soul and honed my craft of the written word.

Writing poetry is a spiritual practice for me. It provides me nourishment on a soul level. To connect this post back to Holistic Health Coaching, writing poetry for me is a mind, body, spiritual practice that balances and nourishes me holistically. According to Integrative Nutrition’s principles writing poetry nourishes me in my Primary Food area of Spirituality.

Writing poetry is only one of the ways I connect with my spirit. I also meditate, pray, practice yoga, chant mantras and paint watercolors.

How do you feed your and nourish your spirituality?

Below is a new a poem I wrote for the Bluelove Collection:

My Blessing – Love, Sex & Poetry
By: Linda A. Long

As we
Move through
This world
In different directions
Each walking
Different paths
Towards our
Highest good
I call on God
And our Guides
To strengthen us
By reassuring
That the depth
Of our spiritual bond
Will keep us connected
I have faith
That our connection
Is not defined
By the closeness
Of our proximity
Instead
It is defined
By bond of our souls
As much I
Want to look
Into your beautiful
Blue eyes
Every day
For the rest of my life
I am also aware
There is something
Happening now
Right now for
Both of us
We are both
Refining ourselves
Stretching into new skin
Transforming our souls
Striving for our best
And highest good
Perhaps
During this time
Of self-expression and growth
We need to
Walk the path
Physical alone
While still
Knowing our
Soul Connection
Our spiritual connection
Is unbreakable
It was today
I felt
I needed to
Remind you
My Bluelove
You are never far
From me
Our connection
Does not require
Your presence
For me to feel you
Our souls
Recognized each other
Before our eyes
Ever saw
The depth of
Sexual lust and desire
We have shared
Over the last five years
As we move
With the wind
Of change
Carry me close to your heart
I am not looking
To leave you
I am only
Looking to
Find a part of myself
I lost a long time
Ago when I settled
For contentment
And played smaller
Than my capabilities
In these years
Of living a life
Less than the one
I am capable
Of Living
I lost the person
I was born to be
The natural risk taker
The girl with moxie
The unhappiness
Of living without
Authenticity pushed
So hard against my spirit
It almost broke me
But it most certainly
Was never about you
You are
One of my blessings
Our connection
Nurtured and fed
My Soul
Until love
Bluelove
Blossomed in my heart
You spark my sexuality
And
Inspire my poetry
You helped me
Grow into a
A stronger braver woman
Who had the courage to
Pursue the call
Of her soul
While my body
Misses the
Energy of lust
You being near
To me stirs
Between my legs
I take comfort
In the knowledge
That our connection
Is strong and
Resilent
It’s capable of
Withstanding change
And distance
It can grow and evolve
With us
And make us stronger
Together instead
Of break us apart
Take comfort
My love
You are still my
Bluelove
And I still
Carry you
In my heart

I Am Out Of The Comfort Zone

Comfort zone art

In May 2017 I enrolled in the Institute Of Integrative Nutrition(IIN) online Health Coach course after search on what is health coach on health coaching websites. I did it because I was having health problems and felt I was not managing them properly. I enrolled in the course to learn how to take better care of myself overall. I also wanted to learn how to care for myself holistically by looking at my mind, body and spirit as one unit. Over the last seven months I’ve learned how to eat better as well as pay attention to food labels, food shop better and eat cleaner. I’ve also stopped eating Dairy back in June. I only eat it as treat on cheat days. Since January 2017 I’ve lost 20 pounds.

Something else happened since starting IIN in May. Something so much more important and profound happened to me spiritually. Over these last seven months, I started really looking at my life and asking myself “Am I fulfilled?” IIN teaches about Primary Food. IIN refers to Exercise, Spirituality, Relationships and Career as our Primary Food. In other words, we gain nourishment by finding fulfillment and happiness in those four non-food primary areas of our lives.

It was around the end of the summer that I started to break down those four areas of Primary Food and really look that them in the context of the question, “Am I fulfilled?”. That’s when I realized I wasn’t fulfilled in Relationships and Career. The relationship area of my life is complicated. I have a lot loss and heartbreak in my past. My lack of fulfillment was because I closed myself off from people family and friends who wanted to have a place in my life. I withdrew and disengaged out of fear of loss. In some cases I was feeling like I needed more than some individuals could offer me. The relationship area of my life is complicated. It’s going to take time for me work through things that have come up but at least I allowed myself to see it. I allowed myself to open up and see what was hurting me. I am working on healing those parts of my soul.

While I started working on the relationships area of my life, I was also becoming uncomfortable at work. That uneasy feeling was creeping in. There was a lot of change, constant chaos and churn in work. My jaw started to lock up from stress until it was so clenched and painful I could barely open my mouth. I had to take a week off from work and worked from home for week to allow my jaw to rest. While I was home, I was asking myself the question every day, “Am I fulfilled?” The answer was, “No, I am not fulfilled?” But, I felt I couldn’t leave. I am loyal and felt I had to stay. Well, that was my excuse anyway…

I told myself I would not look for a job and that things would get better. I remember saying to my Mom, “I don’t feel like looking for a new job but if a new opportunity manifests on it’s own, I would pursue it.” The very next day my new opportunity was waiting for me in my inbox. I love when the Universe answers the call that quick. Within a few days I approached my new manager and asked him I could take a one year assignment outside of our organization. Not a easy thing to ask and he was certainly in a tough spot. But, he said yes because he believed it was the right thing to do.

So, I decided to leave a group I worked in for the last ten years and following my soul’s calling towards work I hope will be more fulfilling. Today was my last day. I am nervous. I am scared. I am excited. I am proud of myself for having the courage to step outside of the comfort zone. I am proud of myself for following the signs the Universe was giving me. I am a whole mixture of emotions today. I am trusting that I am being lead to another step on the road to my highest good and I am letting go of being comfortable.

When I started school back in May to learn how to eat better and how to take better care of myself, I never thought it would lead to me changing jobs. My first day in my new job is Monday. Well, honestly, Monday is my official first day but it’s also kind of a transition day so probably my real first day is Tuesday. I will be writing about this exciting journey I am on over the next year. Please read along and see what happens as I start exploring life outside of comfort zone.

I ask you today, “Are you fulfilled in your Primary Foods?” If you would like to learn more about Primary Foods or would like to schedule a 30 minutes consultation to explore if my health coaching services would be of benefit to you, I invite you to either visit the Coaching Services page of this website and or contact me directly at:

Love Stories – Poetry

Lay next to me
Whisper in my ear
All the things
You feel
In your heart
But can’t say
With your words
Let me see
What’s hidden below
Your manly exterior
Perhaps even
Trust me
Trust me
Enough to
Hold your heart
In my hands
And carry your
Deepest desires
And secrets
As my own
In the most
Private part of
My soul
Trust me
Enough to
Let go
Of what you
Hold so tight
Let me inside
Your inner world
There’s so much
I have yet to
Discover about you
So much
I do not
Yet know
Of your joys
And sorrows
Dreams and hopes
Fears and doubts
Trust me
Enough to
Share
Your experiences
With me
So that I
Truly understand
You as a man
As the man
My soul
Has known
For many lifetimes
Before this one
There is so
Much about you
I’ve yet to know
And so much
About you
Wish to understand
Lay next to me
And tell me
Your story
As I look
Deeply into your
Beautiful blue eyes
It is
In those moments
When my eyes
Meet yours
That see
The comfort
Of a kindred spirit
Who has held
My hand many
Years before today
Perhaps
You were my friend
You could have been
My sibling
You may have
Been my lover before
Our eyes
Knew each other
In this moment
You and I
Were together
Before but
It’s in this lifetime
I truly want to
Know you
I truly
Want to understand you
It’s in this lifetime
I truly want
To complete our connection
Lay next to me
And tell me
What brings
Your heart joy
What gets your excited
What is
Your biggest fear
What does happiness
Unadulterated happiness
Look like to you
As our journey
Together continues
This is the time
I am ready
I am ready
To know you
Beyond the surface
Deeper than skin
Lay next to me
And
Peel back the layers
Of your soul for
Only my eyes to see
My heart to love
Let me
Love you enough
For you to
Relax your guard
Just enough
To let love
My love
In the crack
And show you
A love without
Expectation or condition
Lay next to me
And show me
Your soul
I promise
I will keep
Your secrets
And honor
Your story
Lay next to me
My love
My soul
Needs to hear
Your story
And my heart
Needs to
Love you
Love you enough
That you
Trust me
Not to hurt you

NOTE: I am giving some thought to changing the name of this blog. While I love “Love, Sex & Poetry”, I think some people think because sex is in the title that it is a pornography blog. While I do sometimes write erotica, this is NOT a pornography blog. One of the other reasons I want to change the name is to give me some more freedom to post essays on things other than love, sex or poetry. While I don’t want to post my journal entries, I do want to post essays on health, spirituality, growth, wellness, life coaching, etc…

I am not interested in maintaining two blogs… so, I want to use this blog to host everything I write. It will also give me a place to share information related to my health coaching business. While school gives me a free website for year, I am waiting until after I graduate in May to design it and launch it. I don’t have the time to focus on that right now. I am starting a new job next Monday. I am pretty excited about it and I am looking forward to freeing up space to learn more about it. I am also committed to ensuring I grow in that role so I can make it a permanent gig 🙂 I will need time and space to grow into it. So, I only want one personal blog for now while I focus on my career development and fulfillment.

If I do change the name, I will be sure to give notice and post the new name before hand so folks can change their bookmarks. While the number of my followers with WordPress accounts is under 90, I do get a lot traffic and hits to my site everyday from other sources. It can vary day to day- but yesterday it was 141 and today it is only 25 so far. I will post the new name before changing it so, hopefully, I don’t lose people who actually like to read it 🙂

Heart & Soul – Poetry

Heart & Soul – Love, Sex And Poetry
By: Linda A. Long

You’ve been
On my mind
Lingering just
On the edge
Of my awareness
In the place
Where my
Heart meets
My soul
You make
My heart race
In the way
That makes
Me sweat a little
And blush
In the light
Of your eyes
As I become
Aware of the
Warmth rising
Through my body
Wetness grows
Between my legs
And I become
Erotically aware
That you
You make
My heart race
In the way
That I need to
Be close to your
Energy to source
My own divine
Feminine erotic inspiration
In your presence
I find myself
Having a hard
Time breathing
Because
You still excite me
After all of this time
I am
In love with you
But I still have
A school girl
Crush on you
It’s quite sweet
And bit
Embarrassing
At times
It says something
About the strength
Of our connection
After all of this time
I think it gives
Credence to the
Bond we’ve formed
Over these years
I still
Feel like a school
Girl with a crush
When I look at your
Salt and Pepper
With Crystal Blues
My heart
Is a teenager
Wild and free
Beating with lust
And passion
For you
Today
You hover
In my thoughts
At the place
Where my heart
Meets my soul
Where the
Teenager meets
My mystic old soul
Who sees
With her
Third Eye
And loves
With Anahata passion
Rising from her
Heart Chakra
It’s from this place
The wild and free
Is ignited
With love and
Spiritual connection
It’s from this place
My intuition
Holds you in
My mind’s eye
And hears
You when your soul
Says my name
Calling to me
To meet you
In this place
Where our hearts
Meet ours souls
We are sewed
Into destiny
Perfectly
Entwined
Into everything
That is good and pure
We are
Woven
Through the tapestry
Of joys and sorrows
Of the lifetimes
We’ve shared
In the past
It is when
When I look
Into your
Beautiful blue eyes
I see our
Past, present
And the possibilities
Of our future
As our souls
Are connected
Souls that are
Bonded like
Yours and mine
Are always entwinned
From this place
Where my
Heart meets
My soul
The wild and free
Teenager whose
Heart races
In excitement
When she sees you
Says she loves
And misses you
With the wisdom
And authenticity
Of her wise old soul
Reaching out
Intuitively to
The call of your
Your heart
She hears
In mind
I answer the call
I pray for you &
I nourish your soul
With these words
I write
From the place
Where my heart
Meets my soul

Life is best when lived passionately

NOTE

I’ve heard that when you can’t get someone off your mind you should whisper a prayer for them; that’s how God works. He doesn’t work in grand gestures but in small acts of loving surrender. So I whispered a prayer and wrote this poem. My soul needs some Bluelove 💙💙💙🦋💋
