May your heart and soul dance together and know the exact time to let go and when to go slow and when surrender is all you need to know!

~ Kerri Elizabeth~

We’re all going to the same place

Heaven is ahead

We all came from the same place

The past is the life we lead

What we have now in this moment is where we’ve been lead

By the journey behind you

And the courage to move ahead

The decision that’s left

Is will you take action next

That last moment is already gone

You have now

Let the stitches of sorrow rip away

And let living your best be in everyday

SUNSHINE

Freedom

Freedom to be is the embrace of trusting the inner pace!

~ SUNSHINE~

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

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 tears your reflection will appear

Evolution of your path is in place

Stay sturdy in the embrace

Sunshine

Light of Day Will Fade

Don't miss the light of day living someone else's way!

~ SUNSHINE~

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

Pebbles in infinite amounts toss and turn

Offering an insurmountable melody of beauty to align

Give way to a thought, what is life about

Some days interpret as heavy

Some say, ready

Others seem even and steady

As the light will slowly fade

Another day is gifted into the nightshade

~ SUNSHINE~

Emergence

In the cracks is perfect emergence transcending and pulsating transformation.

~Kerri Elizabeth~

In the crackle of this clay Is a story ……

Be hold my wonderous earth

Living minerals you have birthed

I choose this place to be my home

Rising I surrender to you

A flower shape as I emerge

Under your hot sunny sky Universe

In the kiln of life

Set me to be aligned just right

SUNSHINE

LAKE OF GRATITUDE

Awareness of the heart requires surrendering thoughts!

~Kerri Elizabeth~

Rain drops

An expression

Unmixed with thoughts

Purely emotion surrendering

Concentrated attention

Immersed in awareness

Behold my heart

Hijack my pain

Turn it into rain

May that lake

Be named….. Gratitude

SUNSHINE

Accountability Framed

Design your plan to stand, while mistakes will be made, the lessons are the courage to maintain accountability to build a solid frame!

~Kerri Elizabeth~

Find the fuel that sparks a flame

Release all blame

Jump where you’d rather stand

Stand after falling apart became part of the plan

Cry where tears need space

Create where loneliness resides

Love where doubt pushes you aside

Scream out loud to the full moon

Release the strings not tuned

Emptiness is a place

Where a gift is placed

A surrendered yet not yet captured infinity

Paint your design with the brush of choice

Framing in the empty space

Where light tunnels through to touch

a deeper part of you

Sunshine

The Path

In the path you conceive is where your belief is made!

~Kerri Elizabeth~

May there be love on every path

May calmness be the center at last

May every breathe fill your lungs without fail

May that rush of fear pass with a centered exhale

Release and explore the open door

The light inside will show you more

Be still and visualize

Feel and realize

Inside your human space

Embedded into your cellular place

Is love for you to embrace

SUNSHINE

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

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.
