Happy Birthday to the Greatest Man Ever, MY SON!

BeFunky Collage

Zakary Ryan taught not to believe in the opinions of others, but to deeply believe the depth of your own true worth! 

~MY SON ZAKMAN~

His laughter infectious

His joy, uplifting

His outlook radiated champion

His love unconditional

His emotions deeper than the sea

His spirit beyond the human body’s capacity

His gifts moved the planet

He moved with creativity and challenged your thoughts

His soul shared unchartered truths

He pushed the limits and courageously lived

His name forever in my heart

His birth forever my gift of life

His presence and guidance always with me

His voice clearly speaks to me

His journey forever a part of my destiny

My protector, my teacher, my guide

His smile is my sunshine

My baby, my boy, my son, my child, my heartbeat

Thank you for making your appearance 25 years ago on this day

My life has been forever blessed and deeply changed because you chose me as your Momma!

You have shown me a depth I could never have reached or a strength I could never achieve without you!

YOU ARE MY SUNSHINE!

LISTEN WITH OPENNESS INTO THE HEART AND THOUGHTS OF A MAN (my son) WHO FOUGHT  HARD TO LEAVE A MESSAGE THROUGH HIS JOURNEY!

The first two songs are close to our hearts, we played them at Zaks memorial and he sang them with his great power all growing up with hands in the air! This boy has a journey and it won’t stop here, trust me as his momma, he has no stop button so watch out he’s making changes!

I Believe I can fly!

Worlds Greatest!

Intro./ Unfiltered and Raw

Divine Petal

With honor to the heart, acknowledgement to the mind and soul trust, forgiveness and love become one!

~Kerri Elizabeth~

 

Previous to petals

Once a seed

Divinely placed

Reminding me

To love vibrantly

Caress kindness

Shatter anger

Crack the code

Happiness is there to hold

Blooming masterpiece

Beautiful and bold

Behind the eye

The heart it holds

Sunshine in this space!

FALL TO COLOR

Surrendering defense heals the wounds of yesterday and builds strength now!

~Kerri Elizabeth~

 

Fall into the dimensions of tranquility

Revel in the four seasons

Emotional framework surrounds the color change

While significant contrast interprets each drop of rain

Leaves fall away with a side to side sway

Softly passing each branch on the way

Preparation meets opportunity to grow

Nature abundantly overflows

Highlights of winter inquiring their stay

Each season fulfilling their days

Offering knowledge wrapped in change

Surrendering possibility ,blossoming exchange

Stained Glass Life

 

20151231_152551

Every experience a piece of stained glass with memories in the grooves and spaces attached.

~Kerri Elizabeth~

When the light of the day slowly fades

Sounds quiet down all around

Shade takes the stage gently perspective is changed

Where a moment ago light and shade both took center stage

They bow with the honor of true love in a universal exchange 

Miraculously the tides never hide

Crashing and surging to a universal rhythm and vibe

Pebbles in infinite amounts toss and turn

Offering in grace our perceptions and concern

Give way the emotional thoughts and response 

Interpretations and nonchalance

Some say, ready

Others seem even and steady

As the light will slowly fade

Another day is gifted into the nightshade

SUNSHINE

LOVE IS COMPLETE

Love is the infinite place nothing can replace!

~Kerri Elizabeth~

 

Love is the only answer
Silence
Stillness
Serenity
Raindrops fall
I hear them all
Hitting leaves
Landing with ease
No longer thirsting
That’s love!

Sunshine

Soulful Courage

Where your soul pulls you, that’s where courage is.

~Kerri Elizabeth~

There will moments you have to let go

No thoughts, just let go

Times your heart needs to rest

Your mind stops

Your body resigns to the pull and lets go

Where you have given all you can

And the design changes you within

When we allow those moments to flow

There a loss of control

A fear takes hold

Vulnerability will breathe near

Peace will disappear

Then hope rises

Pain and grief need safety and love to breathe

Judgement must be erased and love embraced

SUNSHINE

May I ask you?

May I ask you, is this life you live fulfilling the calling of your soul and will you leap out of the comfort and live whole?

~Kerri Elizabeth~

Where water runs, healing and mercy become one

Where glaciers run free and melt into me

Courageous energy redesigns me

Minerals softening the outer shell where my heart lay inside to keep pace

Flowing with grace, beauty covers me and encapsulates the mystery of space

The river flows with the presence and brilliance of life

A priceless experience in the constant movement of the current’s approach

Hope in the river defines me and finds me

The aura that surrounds nature before me illuminates my wonder to be

The birds let go opening their wings to more

Allowing the wind to carry them they soar

Surrendering to the day’s end

Wildlife in motion and expression revealed again

SUNSHINE

A Field of Forever

20170821_123234

Fall into a field of eternal optimism and saturate your soul with courage.

~Kerri Elizabeth~

Capturing the essence of beauty

Strength in the bend and sway created by a slight breeze

Colors of pure sunlight with a drop of earthly wonder create a center

Curiosity to grow manifests existence and courage, reaching for the sky unwavering

A seedling miraculously flourishing as a flower

A flower encompassing the essence of possibilities

Fueling possibility, inspiring optimism

Access infinite evolution

Offer only the presence of your light

Allow the tears to interpret without judgement

And your heart to hear your purpose

Get lost in a field of forever

Plow out the judgments of whys and hows

And water the freedom to love and change

Love is without time and space with a flowing of nothing

Erased and everything at the universe’s pace.

Sunshine

My Wisest Teacher and My Son

 

What the eye does not see is where the heart is set free!

~Kerri Elizabeth~

This baby of mine, my boy that has become a warrior man, husband, son, brother and friend.

His strength and courage far out stretch any I have ever seen, heard of or experienced.

I’d say it’s because I’m his mom and I’m biased, but that’s just a small part of the truth.

His story can’t fit on this page, but the light in his smile can radiate for you a message.

Interpret the love in these eyes and this smile from an unconditional love.

To know him is to love him.

To hear him is to capture the sound and rhythm of pure adoration and gratitude and love for life.

To walk with him is to teach you the most magnificent postural power.

To hug him is to feel more energetic peace than you’ll ever feel.

To speak to his soul is a gift I am blessed to behold.

To be his momma is the best gift I’ve ever received and it can’t be bought or sold.

To share our hearts while we reflect on our life’s path to here is in pure gratitude.

To feel his heartbeat while he holds my hand and hear him say, “I’m OK mom” when nothing seems even close to ok, teaches me the most love and strength I’ve ever experienced.

This BOY has a heart of 100 badass LIONS and as his spirit roars and becomes too big to fit into his frail body, he continues to teach us all, he is so much more than what you see!

Take your blinders of life off, it’s what you DON’T see that sets you free!

My WISEST teacher ever, MY SON!

I love YOU and my soul’s tapped in, every life you’re in, you promised you’d pick me as your mom again!

Can we make a pact though, that next time you don’t run faster than me?

I love you every minute and every second!

Your Momma for infinity!

SUNSHINE

(For those of you who don’t know Sunshine is my Soul’s voice, it’s the source where my words come and my eyes are closed and the deepest part of me shines!)

Significant Surrender

wp-image-1429339477

 

Surrender to the still silence to hear more!

~Kerri Elizabeth~

 

Significantly silent in solitude

Conscious awakening exploding from my soul

Bursting forth the capacity to live more

Deeper in love with this peaceful open door

Momentum coursing forth

A pace leads to a sacred way to breathe

Swirling and whirling the hearts design

Allowance to be and feel all that’s inside of me

Escaping with unrivaled infinite love

Lessons and gifts molded into treasures of time

Smoothing edges and defining lines

Entering through wounded spaces

Surrendering to open places

Never dimming the purpose to shine bright

Fall into the power of the full moon’s night

Align yourself to fall together not apart

Pour rest and reassurance as fuel to restart

Embrace the resuscitation

Breathe out frustration

Graciously invest in your soul’s voice

The stage is presented and the microphone on

The echo in a universe recording a song

Love, Sunshine
