Color your world

Reveal the colors of your soul in the life you lead and hold.

~Kerri Elizabeth~

What colors do you see here?

Do you hear the crackle in the leaves?

Or the sound of the breeze?

What path will you follow?

Or do you lead into each tomorrow?

Is it a color that brightens your day?

What color is your emotion today?

Your mind starts to create what you’ll say

Your heart feels the way

Your soul is guiding it all in place

Listen ………

Feel…….

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

Presently Present

Purposefully present a new perspective, lean into a new view! ~Kerri Elizabeth~

Whisper like a leaf slowly taking flight

It’s amazing and right

Breathe the whirlpool of pure hope

Arouse your curiosity into the palms of mother nature’s beautiful life lines and be fully alive

Relax the Grasp and release the soles to walk the unraveled path

Stand firmly in the stature and posture of truth

Take the corners of life solid and upright

Lean into the turn and be aware to discern

Trust in the center your soul is open to enter

Serve a hand shaken from experience wrapped in a gift of Compassion

Water dripping from her fingertips captivated by the waterfalls of perception

Leaning, hearing, feeling, seeing

A rush carved by the bow creating a separation of harmony and presence

Harmony deafening the human reaction to correct and delivering an invitation to growth

The beauty to create a principal or two is the artist’s (that’s you) willingness to feel presence that’s true

The Expedition

20160829_124908

The expedition of life is the exploration of thought and emotion joined together by a willingness to see and feel more.

Kerri Elizabeth

 

The expedition of the rivers rapids rumble the earth.

The sun captivates nature’s worth.

The trees without a sound produce oxygen all around.

No display of limits in the wilderness are found.

Every thought has an opportunity to be filled through love.

The beauty of life is found where you decide what you’re made of.

Allow any thought unkind to dissolve in the winds of gratitude.

Love is in every latitude.

Let the exploration of emotions find peace as it goes.

Allowing growth and change through the ebbs and flows.

The answer to it all is where you stand and fall.

Sunshine through it all.

There You Are

20160817_171644.jpg

Get lost in nature and you’ll find yourself.

Grace

Were seen in the heat of the fire where intensity is felt.

In the adventure of the breeze flowing with ease.

In the spontaneity of where the pinecone re-seeds.

In the courage of the wilderness free to be.

In the river bends as the earth shifts direction again.

In the burned mountain tops carrying scars within.

Were seen in the forest floor growing where seeds have blown.

In the rivers flowing with their own tone.

In the tree stump where roots remain carrying past pain.

In the boulders that are earthly bound.

In the stars lighting up the heavens to the ground.

In the blue skies that reflect into the depth of our eyes.

Were seen in the birds singing lullabies.

In the ant climbing up a tree vertically to be free.

In the leaves that hold seasons of change.

In the sunshine that heals an emotional exchange.

Were seen in the diversity of the trees.

In the life adventuring the streams and the seas.

In the fierceness of nature’s storm.

In in the determination of the bear’s strength and form.

In the loving eyes of a deer’s stare.

In in the earth’s core where passion is bared.

In the flower that opens to the whisper of the morning light.

Were in the silence and solitude of the day and night.

 

 

Courage Replaced Fear

20160813_205645
Do not fear to pioneer, to venture down new paths to endeavor.

Ralph J Bunche

I asked him,”can you take me to the highest place?”

“What then,” his response, with a puzzled look on his face?”

“I will know when I get there,” I replied.

The feeling to go I couldn’t hide.

When we arrived at the mountain top.

I felt pulled to be on the ground and look up without a sound.

Suctioned to the earth,  I was covered by the heavens all around.

I sat up and looked in front of me and knew.

The mountain was holding a special view.

To some it may sound silly to hear, to me it was audibly and visually clear.

The mountains and the heavens are your gear.

Slide into the lake and conquer another fear.

I asked again,”can you take me to the lake to swim in the darkness of the night?”

With an expectant look he replied, “Yes, let’s do your bucket list right.”

The waters would signify all the tears through the years.

The moonlight would shine as nature pulls me near.

Grounded in earth, heaven and grace.

The moment delivered another embrace.

Swimming in the deep dark waters of the night was set.

My mountain man driving a boat to protect.

Each breath signified doing something new.

Accepting the challenge to be scared and move through.

To create love where misunderstandings appear.

To be strong where weakness fed on a reflection in the mirror.

To be aware where denial steals time.

To stand off the defensive line.

To strip it all down to the ground.

Letting go where you once were bound.

Wild Hearts

My life work is an attempt to ground the pure, visionary spirit in the imperfect, intoxicating sensuousness of worldly life. -Thomas Moore-

 

Wild heart you’re never far away.

You’re in the rumble of the sky and the lightening up high.

Oh wild heart you’re never left behind.

Your essence for life clears my mind.

Your beauty brings a dance to the silence of the nights.

Your truth erases battles of an inner fight.

While the language of the wilderness echoes from my soul.

The rain and the thunder orchestrate love to flow.

Wild heart you’re my soul, the lover of my spirit you guide me without control.

Spirit gift, the lover of my soul, thank you for the the inspiration of letting go.

I’m in the whisper through the trees limbs and the breeze guiding every leaf to bend.

I’m in the petals of the daisies surrounding the center you see as sunshine again.

I’m in the color of the rocks lining the shore.

I’m you touched by the presence and the depth to learn more.

I am free to be me and be and love for eternity.

Existence

Be the reflection you want to see!

Kerri Elizabeth

Every move rippling into slow graceful motions.

Energy is like calligraphy written into emotions.

Time is non existent bouncing off anxious existence.

Each heartbeat seems to travel with a delayed remembrance of purpose.

Followed by the rushing of oxygen to the surface.

Breathing continues to give life and each moment is still new.

Eyes open up to the sky radiantly blue.

Life and laughter are lovers undone.

Inner freedom shines like the rays showering down from the sun.

Capturing life in snapshots with every blink of the eye.

Stillness reaches in and grants the depth inside.

Soul conversation releases peace in this place.

Gently guiding your hand to dance with the life you’re given to embrace.

Three Parts of Me

20160617_214048

 

When the mind talks and the heart walks and the soul hangs on and neither seem to belong. Stay present and at peace, breathe and continue to release.

Kerri Elizabeth

My soul and heart are far apart.

The whisper is here but my mind isn’t clear.

I can change my mindset.

I can create a smile.

I can ride my bike until I drop.

I can jump in the lake and swim to the bottom or stay on top.

I can fall down and get back up.

I can stand tall and take deep breaths.

I can keep writing and let it flow through.

I can choose to let go and keep my love tank full too.

Today I want to scream out loud.

Until my heart and soul jump back off the ground.

I want to run until my feet are numb.

I want to surrender to the silence with the sun.

I want a solution to my sons cancer NOW.

I want to know why and fix it somehow.

He is my light.

My Insight.

Sent to me from above.

He is unconditional love.

Grant me the strength of a LIONESS right now.

Join my heart to my body again somehow.

Soul ,I’m here draw me near.

Mind let go of fear.

Somehow there is an answer here.

Please I’m asking with every cell of me.

Heal his body from the inside out.

Creatively kick that F@@@ed up Cancer OUT.

With Rays of Light.

Prayers on my knees and a fight.

Let this nightmare go tonight.

Dance At First Glance

20160628_060509

 

 

Dance with the romance of life and create with the facets of your life’s design.

Kerri Elizabeth

A glance.

A dance.

A romance.

A place.

Room for Mistakes.

Permission to be you.

Breathing and releasing tension too.

Give yourself space.

Live and embrace.

Let go of any negative trace.

Jump in a lake.

Skip rope for lifes sake.

Let the child in you jump off the ground.

Let your heart feel joy all around.

Jump on your bed because you can.

Make a fort in a tree and laugh again.

Make intentional faces of all kinds.

The joy of movement will fill every line.

Tighten laugh lines with the facets of  your life’s design.

You are more than enough to shine.

Everything you need has been given to you.

Gratitude follows confidence too.

Wake up and stretch.

Breathe that in.

You are remarkable.

Dance with the romance of life again.
