Naked Reflections Poetry: Shameless and Unapologetic

Pieces of Me

No Gravatar



A million pieces

of me

swept under

the rug

until spring.

A quiet urging

to take the stained rug out

wafted in

with morning air.

I shook and

snapped dust

on lifeless grass.

Gingerly stepped inside

where a million pieces of me

took one season

to mend

under the rug

now tattered and trashed.



Her Haiku Healing: A 40-Day Spiritual and Emotional Journey

Day 40: Light


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.
