Day 187: Sometimes I Am

Sometimes I am.

Sometimes I am suspended in time. Unable to stop staring ahead at what could be.

Sometimes I am a twisted warrior upon wooden horse entwined with emotion.

Sometimes I am wounded. A broken woman watching the east for the sun that never came.

Sometimes I am the shadow crying up to the heavens.

Sometimes I am knightΒ hidden in the corner. Eyes a glow with fear and spear made sharp.

Sometimes I am crucified in the forest of thought.

Sometimes I am twin flame, calling out to lost lover.

Sometimes I am clinging branch longing for confirmation of my existence.

Sometimes I am a naked glow, harboring the mysteries.

Sometimes I am refugee, sleeping in my corner of light.

Sometimes I am dancing spirit with partner grace.

Sometimes I am union, passion, and joy.

Sometimes I am a jester pointing the way to laughter.

Sometimes I am constant searcher.

Sometimes I am beauty that sweeps across stage.

Sometimes I am electric.

Sometimes I stand together.

Sometimes I rise alone.

Sometimes I am.

  1. Wow…what a wonderful poem, I can feel your loving heart in this one my friend.
    I can’t pick a favourite line because I love all of them and can relate to them too.
    Love your photos, but you know how much I feel grounded in the woods.
    Love you so very much Basna Woodelf. Me. xxx πŸ™‚ ❀

    1. Thanks Alienhippy. You rock. Thank you for looking at this after I asked you to….lol! I loved finding images in the trees…writing the words was the harder part. But taking the photos was divine. Lots of love to you. BASNA

      1. You make me laugh, you know I would have got here eventually. But I am glad you did ask me to check it out because I got to comment first and not loop about my words. Also…glad to stop your loops when I can. You are so wonderful my lovely friend.
        I LOVE this post. I love you too!

  2. Sam from the very first line-
    Sometimes I am suspended in time. Unable to stop staring ahead at what could be…
    this post has been about me too…only you said all that i have been feeling too so eloquently…
    stunning piece..

    1. And she takes a nervous bow, scannig the audience for signs of chocolate. Thanks so much bulldog, much appreciated….I’m happy you enjoyed this. Much light to you. πŸ™‚ Sam

  3. I love what you’ve done here… weaving together photos and story….. and self-revealing all the elements of “you” ~ “I am” in awe of your unlimited ability to create and offer us self-expression this way. Your photos are fantastic and make me long to walk in my woods — (have not been able and this season riddled with lyme ticks)… Love all the green in you here ~ Special Post dear sea sister ~ skipped a few heartbeats for this one xo πŸ™‚ Robyn

    1. Okay…you will laugh…at first I made a story up using some of the trees about a person I was upset with….lol….but I got over it before I was done…and I’m like…now what??? So, the voice of reason reminded me that all angst comes from inner love and perception…so I focused on me….hehehe. πŸ™‚ oh, bummer about the ticks…they thought I might have lyme…but I focus on not having it. πŸ™‚ “skipped a few heartbeats”….that’s so sweet. HUGS to you sea sister. πŸ™‚

      1. Wow — that is quite the ‘backstory’ on this post — laughing πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ I would guess you would ‘get over it’ before post time too… know you very much self-actualized and that voice of reason is very much your friend too. Yes- we live in tick land here — and it was a theory after some blood work a year ago (some titers are positive)… but like you I have moved away from the focus as there is no easy answers there… Ok ~ see another note now will go look!xo

    1. πŸ™‚ That was late yesterday. I posted at almost midnight…but hopefully the ‘green’ continued throughout the day. You are so kind to say so. I asked the dear soul who gives me weekly massages if the photos looked like me. And she said I look different in every one… at least I’m not the only one that can’t tell what I look like. LOL. I really wanted her to say: “Oh, you are just so much more gorgeous…..too gorgeous for words….” But you know, we can’t have everything in life. lol…giggling….hehehehe

      1. You do look a bit different in each – but not crazy different… always beautiful and usually radiant πŸ™‚ I like your daily photos…. we should all be required to do that …would be fun!! xxoo

  4. and every time you amaze me with your words and pictures. Hoe beautifully they both blend together, expressing your emotions. Your exploration I love.
    Blessings and much love.

    1. Always love the energy of your words. Such a genuine heart behind every letter you type. Thank you very much. Many blessings and much love to you, too, my friend. Sam πŸ™‚

    1. I love trees, too. Yes. Your words are very correct…how to endure peacefully and with prescence…and without fret of future or regret of past. you are most welcome…and how they shelter and give us air….sigh. πŸ™‚ Sam

  5. yes, oh yes…i am, too!!!! sometimes i’m all that and more…words and pictures in total “in sync mode” πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ ingenious!!!!

    always have a “feel good” time reading your blogs, my friend…{{{{hugs}}}}
