As I let Go

As I Let Go 

after waging an internal and external fight
the battle to hold on to

a way of being that doesn’t serve
my heart or yours

surrendering the superfluous

I experience an exhaustion
weighted in my form
relief in authenticity

a quiet peace makes
its presence known

ensuing
grace and rest

Ruth Roberts

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

Waves in Water

Waves in Water

consistent

increasing
decreasing

surf it
balanced

throw a stone
watch still waters ripple

circles within circles

its power

calls  a memory
older
wiser

influencing
reflected
in

its health
and ours

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
