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

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

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!)

Beautiful Soul

The heart and soul will find their place, wounds will heal where sorrow once was in that space!

~Kerri Elizabeth~

The vines know their route

Beauty added to the view they surround

Tangled only to perception shaken around

Reaching for the stars never tied or bound

Shooting stars represent core freedom found

Investigating the inner sounds

The sight

The light

The vibrations in the ground

The breathing and pulse of every tree standing proud

Others fallen with a purpose to lay down

Solidity exists firmly untethered by a slippery slope

Polarity is the sun ray’s reflection of hope

Rain divinely drops clearing the fog over illusions

Trusting in the strength put into the making of your own braided twine

Made from the heart and soul when aligned

In a flash blinded but harnessed in alignment.

Sunshine

Awareness is the Light

Where the sunshine and the beauty of the sea meet your flesh, separation collapses and awareness happens!

~Kerri Elizabeth~

 

There will be a roar internally unveiling

A submergence of love never failing

A curiosity untangled gracefully into an adventure

Tiptoe through the tulips of existence

Dance with the breeze

Unravel thyself out of assumption

Focus where depth meets infinity

Where eternal connection locks in your glance

Where doubt evaporates and belief is a never ending trance

There is always a war of two roars

A decision behind every door

A stare

A chance

A glance

A dance

A roar of immortal existence graces my path

Choices to stare, glance or dance

Hunger intrigues the roar of a growing soul

Nutritional variance presents a course

Awareness does not rise to be

It presents itself to receive

Love, Sunshine

The Heart’s Pace

IMG_20170607_073813_714

 

Fall in place and embrace your heart’s pace!

~Kerri Elizabeth~

In the brevity of escape

Serenity surrounds with shape

Your truth is where you will be set free

Silence speaks delicately in the gift of a heartbeat

Resounding confirmation of the beat repeats

Calmness sheds its anxious covering

A meadow of brilliance is in continual recovery

Daisies dance while waving to the rhythm of the comforting breeze

Tangoing with the blades of green

Grounded and intertwined in a rooted place

Misunderstood only by the human race.

Nakedness will reveal the truth of the heart

Shaped through grace, innocence is replaced

Playfulness is revealed and not concealed

It’s in the climbing of the trees and the freedom to dance in the fallen leaves

It’s in the umbrella of a maple tree slowing the pace of the raindrops from space

Shed a tear without fear, it is in the release of the tear your reflection will appear

Evolution of your path is in place, stay sturdy in the embrace

Sunshine

Dive into Depth

wp-1469888630029.jpg

Dive into the depth of your soul it already knows! ~Kerri Elizabeth~

 

She sits with wonder filling her lungs with ease.

The cerebral palpitations of the earth under her human form.

The fountain of her soul overflowing with the breeze of the present solitude of grace.

Lost and so found in the deep timbers of her mind.

Heart racing, water falling, sun rays melting away all that does not partake in graciousness.

Altering and often severing waves of energetic distractions.

Divinely receiving the song of each bird.

The splash of every fish touching the core of wonder.

The magnitude of wisdom in the voice of the mountains.

The nakedness of her skin encompassed between the snowy temperatures and softness of the lake.

Her feet sink into the sand of the shore every pebble sanding her edges.

Drinking of the infinite love, drunk on the miracles of what her eyes see and her heart feels.

Every drop of water holds a reflection of this moment, drawing her free will to BE alive.

Never seeking for tomorrow or grieving yesterday, but presently saying YES to NOW!

Sunshine!

Immersed in Tranformation

Listen to the inner light it will guide you, listen to the inner peace it will feed you, listen to the inner love it will transform you.

-Siri Chinmoy

 

 

When love and life are one and there is no space between what’s undone.

The birds will fly and the wings will soar with no fear of more.

Waves crash and trees topple in the storm’s core.

To be immersed within nature transforms me.

Where the snow falls and rain drops meet, a crackle of comfort navigates my feet.

Submergence of my soul in what my eyes can hold.

Beauty unfolds.

Devouring the depth of where my heart pulls.

The transcendence of colors arrives in all bold.

Reflections of life swell in the content of this wave.

Interaction and decompression of thoughts are saved.

What is now has already been determined to be.

Revel in wanderlust and continue to see.

Where your mind takes you, let it go.

Capture it and ask the questions, do you wonder or know?

Aspire to bravely live each moment as it unfolds.

The sun continues to rise, I am told.

ARISE

Arise and have grace in this place, let go and have faith.

Kerri Elizabeth

 

In the consumption of experience complete overflow spills over.

There is no comfort zone to this process.

A complete and deliberate graceful transcendence must arrive.

A wake-up to what is inside.

Memories flow and triggers of the past simultaneously let go.

The breakdown and astonishment render inspired risk to be free.

Anger must be unmasked as its true self, seeking comfort, security and control.

As the waves of the ocean create white caps and the wind howls with fury,

I am reminded to be still and let go of worry.

Control masks itself and hides its insecurity and the wind forces its abrupt revealing.

Conversations of fear disengage the heart and build scars not healing.

Consciousness must arise and tragedy is just an example of where our minds go.

Purge tension and evacuate from familiarity and risk courage on an unknown path.

Invite peace and solitude to your present state.

Trust in the disassembling inside and arise to the peaceful place you will reside.

Embracing Silence

When the absence of a presence leaves your space, be embraced by the safety of natures place!

Kerri Elizabeth

Sitting in silence with a view.

The sun is setting and tomorrow will be new.

The sky is pink and yellow and baby blue.

The ocean pours over the horizon ahead.

Darkness is seeking its place again.

Where his presence used to be.

There is now emptiness next to me.

God knew where to place me.

He knew I needed safety.

I wasn’t falling apart.

I was falling into a place to mend my heart.

I didn’t know what was in store.

I trusted in more.

He was clearly embracing me in nature’s design.

With everything beautiful complete and in line.

Sunshine is inevitable inside of me.

Today I am grateful just to be.
