an introspective lyric (thank you!)...the goddess speaks - part 1

I came across a poem today in a book jacket
it resonated with my recent thoughts.
I was feeling as though I have not been living to my fullest capacity.
Not feeling as alive as I should. Withering in my prime of prime's.
Knowing it's time to live. Live fully. Live more beautifully.
Kiss the skies. Let my heart open and love again. Feel the beauty,
the amber glow, let it warm, and let the waters cool,
just FEEL...feel something. There is a Goddess inside and she
wants to feel, to breathe, to live through me...

I will not die an unlived life.
I will not live in fear
of falling or catching fire.
I choose to inhabit my days,
to allow my living to open me,
to make me less afraid,
more accessible,
to loosen my heart
until it becomes a wing,
a torch, a promise.
I choose to risk my significance;
to live so that which came to me as seed
goes to the next as blossom
and that which came to me as blossom,
goes on as fruit.

Hi Calli, this poem you've found
so resonates with me and I vow to
make each day more lived.

Calli, I have a little play-challenge going on at Poemflesh.
I would adore it if you would
play along. Your exquisite sensibilities are perfect for
this prose-poem thing. Please.

I got to meet Dawna Markova and her husband when I worked for New Dimensions Radio. Dawna is amazing, we love her.

It's TWO-FOR-ONE Day...and I, for one, am loving it. Calli, it's good you don't do this every day, because I'd never leave your site! It's called "addiction"..."obsession", or just plain ***never mind.
