Day 8. NaPoWriMo- Celebrate Poetry, All Month Long!
Poem: Fifteen Minutes at Dawn and at Dusk.
Dear, dear friends
For 15 minutes as the day begins and 15 as it ends
Yes, for only 15 minutes at dawn and at dusk
Imagine if you may, that you created a new sacred space
That you paused the unending showreel of your life
You stepped back, far away from the frenzied pace
That you became one with the light within
And you stopped doing and started being
In being, imagine that you were all-knowing and all-seeing
That you could create everything out of nothing
And indeed the universe was yours in that sacred moment.
Take this time for yourself and re-connect with your divinity for a while
And see the landscapes of life suddenly look different by a long mile
Would you step out in courage and sing the songs in your heart or be silent?
Would you create empowering thoughts in your mind or snuff them of life?
Would you continue your patterns of pain, anger, fear and strife?
As you continue to doubt your power and think up excuses and reasons
Excuses of why you are not good enough and how these are the wrong seasons.
Yes, today, take 15 minutes at dawn and at dusk
To reflect, meditate, pray and let your spirit soar and fly
And with an eagle’s wisdom begin to discern the truth from the lie
As you discard the fallacy of your unworthiness, and embrace your magnificence
Begin to bask in your light and beam out your true essence
Will you let the gift of time simply, slowly, sadly, pass you by
As you selfishly and fearfully hold on to your talents and big ‘WHY?’
Will you choose to take action in the midst of your fears and stand tall?
On the grave of those buried, limiting beliefs that crippled you to fall?
Dear, dear friends
As the day begins and as it ends
For only 15 minutes each day, at dawn and at dusk
Imagine if you may
That you were co-heirs and co-creators
Of a kingdom built upon unconditional love
Imagine you had the wisdom of an eagle and the peace of a dove
And as you imagine you must know now
That the thought ‘impossible’ is a fallacy, and leads to endless cycles of ‘Fight-Flight’
Be certain now that for every dream you dream, be it in the day or at night
The question you must focus on and always ask is simply ‘Why?’
And then ask ‘How’ can it be done? How can you excel and pull through?
You must get off the fence and always take action, empowered action!
As you fulfil and honour your inner calling, your purpose and passion.
So dear, dear friends, for only 15 minutes at dawn and at dusk,
Reflect, meditate and PRAY – sitting, standing or on your knee
Magic and miracles happen if you let them be.
So pray, work hard and simply flow with it, if you may,
Fill your cup daily from this eternal spring of love within you.
The world awaits, as you manifest your light for all to see!
