POETRY BY SHIRL A. STEWARD

Discovery
 

 

Cut loose the ties that bind
those things that hold behind,
Free mind's eye from ego's lust,
clear the clutter, blow 'way the dust,
Take to butterfly wing, on a spiritual soar
Embrace the chance to ask for more
of everything in life from birth to death
inhale the splendor with every breath,
ha, transformations. . .bring celebrations,
a moth emerged from the dark cocoon,
a chrysalis to butterfly all a color very soon,
experience innocence in life's precious dance,
fill the mind with wonders which enhance
and bathe the soul in joyous bliss
Sound the trumpets, give a kiss
To the one which gave us birth
No greater mother than the Earth.
Expressing thanks for all of this
It's a call only fools resist.
Release and let it be
Fulfill all dreams of ecstasy.
