Flawless Camouflage

Behind flawless camouflage

lives

an unarmed soldier

naked

ashamed

of truth

wearing steel smiles

undetected metal

guarding her heart

joy-entrapping

black blinders

closed

until truth

gets leaked

between dreams

written in the dark

and words whispered

in the light

 

 

 

 

 

Empowering Light

Processes

to

empowerment

all-consuming

infinite

each day

another step forward

toward brighter light

against darkness

making progress

with everything I need

light is not at the end of my tunnel

light is there throughout

it is here

within

whether it flickers

dims

or shines

Day 40: Light

candlelight

Although my journey

is not over, I can see

clearly in the dark

My 40 days of haiku healing have reawakened my muse, helped me express feelings from the depths of my darkest pain, and allowed me to walk in faith towards a light that awaits me at the end of this spiritual and emotional journey. Although my journey is not over, I can see clearly in the dark. I can see that I am worthy, that I matter, and that it is time to begin anew. I’ve always believed the scripture that says weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.  I can hardly wait for that morning. It may not be tomorrow, but it’s coming.

In the eyes of storms

Searching for my life jacket

Drifting into light
