Intertwined

mesmerizing
chills in truth expressed

layers revealing
wisdom of light in shadow
divine understanding

connected within
by essence and form
to both
land and ancestry

the known and
unknown
intertwined

unwinding
unfolding

finding strength
to know
life’s centre

guided
through and by
the mystery of life

we meet
our selves
and each other”

Liberation

how we think

the beliefs we create
from our experiences

become a complex overlay

of our consciously
and unconsciously
held trauma

unwinding the patterns
both somatically and emotionally

integrating our gained wisdom
aligned with our spiritual nature

is our liberation

Ruth Roberts

We Rise

In starting from somewhere

be it
weighted failure
breaking until we collapse
seemingly unbearable defeat

we surrender to rest

breathing in to let go
giving space for a moment’s reprieve

and then we rise

lifting our eyes
we reach
turning
extending

our kinaesthetic sensing
met by
meeting 
ground

knowing life
as it shapes and
moulds us

our hope
sculpted from the inside

like a marble’s artist
with intuitive wisdom
exposing its innate shape

being made ready
for the next passage

encountering 
what feels to be
an unending valley

maybe a mountain
to unimaginable to climb


yet in reaching its peak
a multifold glory
a basking in the warmth
of all that is

before 
being thrust back
into chaos’ storm

challenged yet again
to shake off that binds us
unravelling our mind’s restrictions

in the mystery of this unwinding
we discover a pristine lake
in the middle
of everywhere and nowhere

diving in
our body and soul
tingles with aliveness

a moment of being
a sacred cleansing

We Rise

Death and Rebirth

Simple

it happens every time
I change

subtle
transition
from who I was

an awakening

a quiet pause

in this moment

a breath
resting
into

the stability of essence

Ruth Roberts

We Listen

We Listen 

the patterns
of our circumstances
can dictate our thinking

and  yet
in our yearning for wholeness

our dreams and imagination
call us
to trust a

quiet whisper
a step in an unknown direction
turning towards our hearts desire

and in that moment

our lives
forever change

Ruth Roberts

Tearing

Tearing

wet crying
or a ripping apart

alone
I gather
tumbling thoughts
from wounded beliefs

I feel
the density
or vacancy
of my heart’s connection

struggling
yearning for clarity
grieving lost moments

waiting in silence

an answer
quiet and then
a softer deeper wisdom

listening
weeping through and healing

my calloused scars

Ruth Roberts
