The Burden of Ego Lifted

Humbled and inspired –
the burden of ego lifted
from me in a moment
and understanding came –
Hush. It’s your turn to listen,
to let yourself be supported,
to let someone else share
her talents and gifts with you.
And Love gifted me
with the expression of beauty
offered by another
of Her children. Blessings
abound and surround,
here, now, all around.

Sharing the Light

Keep on shining that light… 🙂

keep shining your light


Keep on sharing your joy, shining your light,
and hoisting your brightest sail.
Some may roll their eyes and snicker
and belittle and bail
from the celebration you’re giving,
the wonder you’re living,
pronounce you full of yourself, and hope that you fail.
There’s a word for what those folks are feeling,
and it has nothing to do with you.
Don’t hide your light for those who don’t want to see it.
Keep shining it for the rest of us who do.
