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

By 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

By Ruth Roberts

Waves in Water

Waves in Water

consistent

increasing

decreasing

surf it

balanced

throw a stone

and watch still waters ripple

circles within circles

its power

calls  a memory

older

wiser

influencing and reflected

in

its health

and ours

By 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

By Ruth Roberts
