I yawn. I stretch. I paint. This is my kind of selfie. ~
The orchard of youth
Suddenly, the blades of age sweeps through me again
Sharp and scourging my face without pity
My eyes shut without permission
And opened up the keepsakes of my heart.
Then my mind is flooded with confusion
Fear contained my soul looking for direction
I refused to confront the mental challenges
Choices matter, I have to choose but why?
I journeyed back to the tree of my childhood
And raking memories feels like sniffing marigolds
I am back in the orchard of youth again
I see beauty, strength and grace. It was so peaceful!
I joyfully soaked myself with the spectacular sights
Of heaven on earth, calming and comforting
Smoothing my wrinkled face with happy days of my life
Full of summer skies and abundance of spring flowers.
I passed and ignored the obvious signs of death
And sins under the veil of pain and suffering
Disguised as wealth and fame – the pearl of great price
At least, I thought but I know now.
And so beyond my fair share
I scraped the claptrap from my heart
Where is the fullness of life and
Where do I go with the absence of faith and love?
Now and then, I’d pierced some gray clouds
And allow the cold winter breeze to touch my skin
Followed by rain as heavens declare
But again, I disobeyed the spirit’s voice.
The journey continued somewhere in the wild
Where I took a detour up in the valleys,
Down by the lake finding peace, courage and grace
Here I stopped and tilt my head towards the sky.
Where is the potent and active force of goodness
And the inner twinkle that was once there?
Why can I not feel the inner world and delight?
Could this be the allegory of a spiritual journey?

We must be willing to get rid of the life we've planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us. - J. Campbell
