We Are All The Same

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Friday, May 14, 2010, In : Poetry 
We are all the same.
We experience the rainbow of feelings.
We struggle with life lessons.
We lift those when we can.
 
We are all the same.
We hurt and get hurt.
We mourn the deepest losses.
We hold on by our fingertips and survive.
 
We are all the same.
We celebrate great achievements.
We prove impossibility wrong.
We stand tall when we reach the top.
 
We are all the same.
We love, cherish and laugh.
We tell people how much we care.
We give when we have nothing left.
 
We ar...

We Truly Live

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Thursday, May 13, 2010,

The sky above
The earth below
the heart in between
the spirit all around

a sweet reminder
of our place in the world
the impact we make
the ripples we send across the land

Each step we take
reminds us of our place
it is a good place
no matter where it is

So we move on
we strive forward
we honor the land, our heritage
our purpose, our contract

When we let ourselves be
just who we were meant to be
the heavens and earths open
and that's when we truly live

Dreams

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Wednesday, May 12, 2010, In : Poetry 

I had a dream once.

Not quite sure where it went -

one minute it was here

and the next it was gone.

I go about my life.

Every once in a while,

I think about that dream

that I once had.

I wonder if I had done this

or maybe if I had done that,

it could have been different.

Why do I still think about it?

Could it be that I

don't want to let it go?

Or, could it be that my soul,

my heart is gently reminding me

"Remember when you had

this dream?  This idea?"

My soul reminds me

that this drea...

The Energy

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Tuesday, May 11, 2010, In : Poetry 

The energy sparks.

It lights a flame,

a small one,

but one that wants to burn.


The energy grows.

The light becomes stronger,

it flickers and fights

to burn and throw light.


The energy survives.

The wind howls

and dims the light

but it never blows it out.


The energy recovers.

It resists all those things

that tries to make it

less than it is.


The energy just is.

It is what it is meant to be.

Nothing can stop

the beautiful light and glow

of the powerful energy.

There is Kindness

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Monday, May 10, 2010, In : Poetry 

There is kindness in my words.

I use them with love and compassion.

I command open hearts and ears

because I lift people up to the stars.

 

There is kindness in my thoughts.

I don't stab people in the back.

I reframe my ideas to the positive.

I offer all love and gentleness.

 

There is kindness in my deeds.

I want to heal and offer support.

I go the extra mile to help a friend

and I expect nothing in return.

 

There is kindness in my heart.

It is something I express freely.

N...

Mom

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Sunday, May 9, 2010, In : Poetry 

She smiles when sad,

glows in the darkness,

brings happiness to the

sadness of situations.


She can heal with a hug,

bring peace to sibling wars,

and hold grudges when a friend

hurts your feelings.


She is strong but compassionate,

easy to give her love and

easy to please.

Mom - who else could do it all?


She sets boundaries,

coaches, defuses crisis,

cleans, cooks, works,

she does it all -

and only get paid through love.


She is Mom.

Happy Mother's Day

to all those who "mom"

Create The Space

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Saturday, May 8, 2010, In : Poetry 

~One from the archives.  Enjoy!~

Create the space
for the new to come into your life
Let go of the old
Let go of the past

Create the space
for the happiness your deserve
let go of the pain
let go of the sadness

Create the space
for the love you need
let go of the mistrust
let go of the insecurity

Create the space
for the laughter to lift your spirit
let go of the seriousness
let loose with the giggles

Out with the old
in with the new
Life changes, love changes
You change. Today.

I Can See The Future

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Wednesday, May 5, 2010, In : Poetry 
 
I can see the future,
One of happiness and light.
It's a place I can breathe,
a place I can take flight.
 
I can see the future,
more than I ever dreamed.
It's a place that is tangible,
incredible beauty, real and perceived.
 
I can see the future,
steps I take bring me closer.
I don't worry about the past,
of my plan I am the composer.
 
I can see the future,
I do the best I can.
Each step I take is meaningful
and I am my number one fan.
 
I can see the future,
no one can stop t...

My Foundation

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Monday, May 3, 2010, In : Poetry 

Where do I start?

I'm trying to find my way.

All kinds of materials,

tools and thoughts,

scattered all over the place.

It's overwhelming.

How do I get to my final goal?

How do I find my way?

It seems so big, so daunting.

I guess I just have to start.

I'll begin here -

my foundation,

a place that holds it all.

Why don't I put this over here?

I'll move that over there.

Sometimes it is successful,

sometimes it comes crashing on me.

But I always come back to the place

where it all star...

Free To Someone In Need

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Saturday, May 1, 2010, In : Poetry 

You may wonder

how you can make change.

A smile, a hug, a good laugh,

it doesn't have to be expensive,

it can just be what someone needs

feeling better can be free.

No money, no riches,

no large houses, no fame or fortune

can bring you happiness 

if you don't have it inside.

So when you see

someone down or

a way you can make a difference

don't let the opportunity

pass you by to make an impact.

Offer what you have

in your heart and soul

and you may find

that something that costs nothing

is worth all the rich...

Life is for loving

enjoying relationships

Life is for experiencing

enjoying nature

Life is for lessons

enjoying the teachings

and graduating with honors

 

Life is for challenges
