Here I will be

Death
Looks like
Sunsets
Fading
Dehydrating
Shriveling
Holding on
Gasping
Constrictions
Restrictions
Crime
Hurts
Murder
Pain
Loss

Life
Looks like
Sunrise
Colorful
Hydrated
Blossoming
Letting go
Breathing
Flow
Allowing
Charitable giving
Feels good
Birth
Ease
Receptive

The middle
Enjoys life
Looks for
More life
But knows
Death
Is inevitable
Helping heal
Helping reset
And knows
Whatever
Will be
Is okay

I prefer
The middle
Where
I
Am

I enjoy
Seeing life
Experiencing life
Living life
Mostly
And know
Death is
Inevitable
Whatever
Will be

Will be

Now here
Here now
I am alive
I am breathing
I am focused on me
I know my time
Is now
I know
I am
Here

I will be
No matter what

~Treasa Cailleach

May you know your time is now. May you know you always did your best. May you know your love for yourself is what matters most. May you know that the divine loves and supports you in all that you do.

Om Shanti

26 of 27: Drifting

Sitting
Drifting
On an ocean
Of thought

Flowers
Are better
Fuzzy cat
Purrs
Soothing relief
To strained

Muscles
Neurons
Systems
Burdened
Beyond normal

Limits
Hard to handle
Time spread
Too thin

Taxing
Energy
Invisible internal
Batteries
Lose power
Fatigue sets in

Mental ocean's
Waves
Crash on empty
Thought
Shores

Empty space
Quietly
Soothing
Frayed
Nerves

Invisible
Sunshine
Warms muscles
From within

This mind
Finds vacation
Inside
Whenever
Wherever
Possible

IT simply
Must
BE
Because
Route
To distant
Beaches
Is not
Yet
Possible

Drifting
In the
Mind
Must
Suffice
For now

~ Treasa Cailleach

May you have a vacation when it is needed. May you find ways to honor your own needs no matter what life brings you. May you care for yourself enough to keep going in life. May you know that the divine loves and supports you in all that you do.

Om Shanti

24 of 27: I Let Good In

I let good in
So I know
I let God in

I sang songs
I love and of love
I danced
Jumped and swayed
God was there
It was good
It was fun

I tasted yummy Eats
And even some
Extra yummy treats
Savored fresh fruit
Crunched crisp salad
God's food is good

I thanked
People in my life
I donated
Of myself and my fruits
I let God in

I encouraged others
In as many ways as possible
I hugged and snuggled
Shook hands and rubbed backs
Gave tips and tricks
God guided my
Hands, arms, heart and words
It was all good

I played
Recreation of
Body, mind, and spirit
With kids
Pets and
Creative moments
It was all good
God was there

I planted
Gardens
Flowers and greens
Beauty
For eyes
And bellies
It was goodness
In, out, and all around

I fed the birds
Even the squirrels
Watched them partake
In God's abundance

I let good in
So I know
I let God in

My pen
My brush
My keyboard
My paper
My blogs
My hands
My heart
My mind
My body

They all tasted
The goodness of god
Every ounce of my being
Has felt
God's healing lightness
Frivolity
Joviality
Exubérant
Contentement
In every cell, tissue, and organ

I let good in
So I know
I let God in

~ Treasa Cailleach

May you know that you let good in and that in doing so, you let God in. May you have an abundance of things you enjoy, which allow you to let God into your life in abundance. May you know and feel the goodness permeate your being. May the goodness remain as long as humanity possible, even when distracted from it.

Om Shanti

23 of 27: I Did.

I did
Everything
Plus so much more
There was only one set
Sandy Footprints
All mine

You were not there
No shoulder to cry on
No arms to hold me
No arms carrying me
Nothing felt
No caring love

My legs are
Burning tired
My arms so weak
Lifting anything is
An impossibility

My lungs
Gasping for air
My heart
Aches with saddness
My vision
Blurry fatigued

My mind
Wonders
What I ever did
To deserve
Such wicked punishment

I'm a good girl
Doing my level best
Showing kindness as much
As humanly able

I have given
More compassion
Than I've ever
Eexperienced myself

I have no shame
Doing my best
In such wicked conditions
The shame is God's alone

Where was God
Clear path not shown
Safe path hidden
No shield or sword
To protect me

The beasts attacked
Relentlessly
The plagues and vermin
Taking their toll
Repeatedly

I never went to
The House of the Rising Sun
Drinks few and
Far in-between
I never smoked
Until damage was already done
Now I beg that Cannabis
Heal My wounds

My greatest fault
Swearing
Yelling
In vain
To keep the beasts
Off me
The plagues
Out of me

Now I lay
Scared and
Scarred

My brain
So damaged
I can no longer
Determine
Reality from illusion
Afraid
Sanity is all gone

God promised it was
All okay
God promised
He was on my side

Then why do I
Feel like a
Woman
Raped, beaten,
And scorned
God forsaken
Alone and wounded

~ Treasa Cailleach

22 of 27: Smell

He smells
So good
Like musky forests
On sunny days

Cologne on
Fresh skin
Delightful to
Olfactory nerves

Too close for comfort
Senses blurr
Cheeks flush
Loins afire
Distraction is
Quite the understatement

Desire to touch
'Tis forbidden
Lumps in throats
Hard to clear

Better to hide
Nay run in fear
It's only desired
Because it's forbidden
Least they say

It's not forbidden
By my paradigm
Only by theirs
Only by ones' choice
Leveled on me

Yet maybe there's an
Alternate
He's not the only one
Alive, attractive, or
Smelling so damn good.

I'm ready for my
Alternatives
I'm ready to explore
Other options

I'm ready for
Surprise and delights
Especially to
My olfactory nerves
