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.

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...

Shine On, Baby, Shine On

Life is for loving

enjoying relationships

being happy

and feeling loved

 

Life is for experiencing

Life is for lessons

Life is for living

enjoying the ride

being alive

and expressing yourself

 

It's your life

so ask yourself

what is your life for?

If You Stay Here

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Thursday, December 3, 2009, In : Spiritual 

If you stay here

you will not learn

because knowledge comes

from learning the lessons

 

If you stay here

you will not grow

because maturity comes

from pushing your limits


If you stay here

you will not change

because shifting comes

from beautiful movement


If you stay here

you will not realize

because awareness comes

from opening your eyes

 

If you stay here

you will not shine

because light comes

from the universal flame

 

If you stay here

you will not breathe

because air comes

Just Breathe

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Tuesday, December 1, 2009, In : Spiritual 
Just breathe
others will try to sway you
but you're just as solid as ever
 
Just breathe
others try to break you
but you'll be able to be handle the pressure

others will try to knock you down

others may underestimate you

Just When You Think

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Monday, November 30, 2009, In : Spiritual 
Just when you think
you can't do it anymore
something gives you the motivation
to keep going on your path
 
Just when you think
you have nothing left
something gives you the resources
to find exactly what you need
 
Just when you think
you have no support
someone opens their heart and hands
to lift you up high
 
Just when you think
the situation isn't positive
something shows the silver lining
in the clouds above
 
Just when you think
it is an impossible task
someone places the final puzzle ...

Don't Fall

Don't Fall
it may be easy to drop
but you can't rise up
if you head below
 
Don't Fall
it may be easy to stop
but you can't move forward
if you give in
 
Don't Fall
it may be easy to let go
but you can't achieve
if you let it beat you

it may be easy to give up
but you can't make progress
if you let them win

it may be easy to believe the lies
but you can't find the truth
if you buy into the words outside you

Give A Gift To Others

Give a gift to others
of happiness and joy

Your Story

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Saturday, November 21, 2009, In : Spiritual 

Sometimes you just need to rest
take a load off, put your feet up
let the world continue without you
just for a few moments, be still
 
Reflect on where you're headed
release the past, where it belongs
let your inner voice get louder
it has a lot of thoughts to express
 
You have to make a decision
about how your story is told
others may want to write your pages
but your book is your own to write
 
So decide what you want to say
is it poetry, a commentary or fiction?
do you want people to kno...

Inspiration

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Wednesday, November 18, 2009, In : Spiritual 
It grows within my heart
from a very small flame
it burns ever so softly
with my gentle loving aim
 
I have to keep it going
the light that wants to shine
my logic tries to shut it down
but I hear the voice of the divine
 
It asks me to see past the smoke
the mirrors that make it unreal
the daily grind of unimportance
the life that is not my ideal
 
I ask for some inspiration
those signs that lift my soul
the power to look past the mundane
to the things that make me whole
 
I see it in the cl...

Wish Upon A Star

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Sunday, November 15, 2009, In : Spiritual 
I looked in the mirror today
and saw my reflections
the life I have led
the choices I have made
the emotions in my eyes

The mirror was asking me to look
to see the reflections
to remember what I have been through
the places I am going
the joy of today

The light illuminated it all
the reflections I was experiencing
I could see the bruises, the scars,
the smiles, the tears,
all that I am made of, all that I will be

There is no avoiding it
the reflections I must see
I have to face what faces ...

Spirit Said,
"You are a beautiful being of light"
and I said
"But it seems so dark, I have no sight"
 
Spirit Said,
"Your soul is perfect right now"

Spirit Said,
"You're learning your lessons well"
and I said
"But I mess up constantly, I can never tell!"
 
Spirit Said,

and I said
"But I have conflicts, troublesome relationships I repeat!"

Astrology: The North and South Nodes

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Sunday, November 8, 2009, In : Articles 
One of the many aspects of an Astrology chart is the North and South Node, also know as the Lunar or Moon Nodes. It's not always looked at but it's an amazing indicator of what karma you brought in and are working on in this lifetime. The North Node looks like an upside down bucket and is also known as the "Dragon's Head". The South Node is the exact opposite - it looks like a right side up bucket and is known as the "Dragon's Tail". For example, if your North Node is 10 Degrees Aries, your S...

The Gem

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Sunday, November 8, 2009, In : Spiritual 

I can't see to the middle
I can't see but this mess
I can't see an out or change
I can't see beyond the stress
 
But I know there is more there
there has to be below the shield
If I can get there
that wound can finally be healed
 
I peeled away the layers
I got down to the core
the gem that lay below
the gem I hadn't seen before
 
It was brighter than I ever imagined
It was beautiful, breath taking even
I can't believe I hid it that long
Now I have something, someone, to believe in
 
I was pr...

I remember you
memories of years past

lessons taught and learned
love and laughter we shared
 
I remember you
maybe it wasn't always easy
but you were a part of my life
and I have set a sacred space for you
 
I remember you

when I can talk to you
when I can tell you how much I love you
 
I remember you

I Have Found Peace

I have found peace
in the quiet of my life

I have found peace
in walking to through my life
in stopping at the challenges

I have found peace

in the love that I give
in my own foundation
 
I have found peace
in my connection to spirit
in my connection to the earth
in my connection to my soul
 
I have found peace
my mission is keep it alive
to offer it to others who need it

Teaching new tricks?

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Sunday, October 25, 2009, In : Articles 
I hear the phrase"you can't teach an old dog new tricks" when referring to people who don't want to change or learn something new.
 
I have to wonder why not?
 
I know when I pick up a book or take a class, I can feel my mind opening.  I look at things differently.  My collective knowledge is now expanded with this new information and I might change my thoughts on a thing or two.

Many people, though, think that they can't learn anything new.  That they are too set in their ways , too "old" or...

Being In Touch

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Tuesday, October 13, 2009, In : Spiritual 
The air called to me
so I went to the sky
sat on a cloud
and watched the world go by
 
The water called to me
so I went to the sand
sat on the beach
and watched the world expand
 
The earth called to me
so I went to the ground
lay on the dirt
and listened to the world's sound
 
The fire called to me
so I went to the red hue
warmed my hands
and saw the world's flames burn through
 
My Spirit called to me
it was time to go inside

and let Spirit provide

Treasures of Life

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Friday, October 9, 2009, In : Spiritual 
We often forget we are human
that we live lives of trials and tribulations
our souls don't have all the answers
our instruction manuals are not complete
 
So we learn by error and experience
we misstep and take victory walks
we hurt and we heal with our words
we cast out and draw in with one breath
 
But we are our own judges and juries
we sentence ourselves to years of pain and purgatory
trying to navigate through life
with chains around our feet and hearts
 
We are worse on ourselves than o...

It starts with me

The good work I can do

The hard work I put in

It starts with me

A positive attitude

A strong will

A heart that's open

 

It starts with me

The change I wish to see in the world

The impact I hope to make on others

The life I wish to have

 

It starts with me

The people I have in my life

The experiences I draw in

The way I handle those people and experiences

 

It starts with me

how I chose to live

how I chose to love

This Woman

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Wednesday, October 7, 2009, In : Spiritual 

Like the Phoenix, she rises again.
the ashes represent her past.
They lie on the ground,
flying away into the calming wind.
 
Like a Scorpion, she stings.
her needle makes a direct hit.
They feel the pain of her wrath,
her point has been made.
 
Like a Horse, she runs
moving quickly through the fields.
Her hair blows with the breeze,
her beauty and grace is in her movement.
 
Like a Butterfly, she flutters.
Her wings, small, yet powerful.
She flies through the air,
gliding across the sky, lo...

You Are My Angel

Finally those words sunk in
I can feel them in my bones
I heard all of the syllables
and the soothing, caring tones

I haven't been treating myself very well
this I finally figured out
I know there were times I was frustrating
I knew you had your doubts

But I had to learn it on my own
no matter how hard of a lesson it may have been
I know you were ready to give up
you thought it just wouldn't sink in

It's important to me that you know
all those talks meant something to me

The Flames

The Flames
burn so bright
the orangey red flickers
throwing off soft light and heat
 
The Flames
burn away confusion
the ashes of the past float away
what's left is my future
 
The Flames
burn away illusion
the heat teaches me caution
I must proceed with thought
 
The Flames
burn away inhibitions
I sit around the circle
I am encouraged by the warmth
 
The Flames
encourage passion
I am driven to take action
I let nothing stand in my way

The Flames

even if you have moments when you're discouraged

My Song

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Friday, October 2, 2009, In : Spiritual 

My voice so soft

I can barely hear myself speak

the words come at a whisper

my story is not being heard

 

I want to sing

but I am scared

what if I am not a good singer?

what if my words don't make sense?

 

I try to let out a note

but it cracks and is out of tune

will I ever get my song out?

will my voice ever be strong enough?

 

So I practice

I fine tune the song

I warm up my vocal cords

I learn to sing from masters

 

I am encouraged

my song is getting stronger

With wands, I create action.
Moving the energy,
breaking through the barriers.
I make things happen.

With swords, I use logic.
slicing through disbelief,
organizing my ideas.
I think uplifting thoughts.

With pentacles, I generate abundance.
taking care of all my needs
drawing in everything and everyone I need.
I lay a strong foundation.

With cups, I drink from the emotional well.
quenching my thirst,
touching every emotion.
I embrace my feelings.

With spirit, I connect to my soul.

Didn't I once see you fly?

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Sunday, September 27, 2009, In : Spiritual 

I can't seem to find you
behind that wall so high
you seem to be hiding
didn't I once see you fly?

There are others who will ground you
but I don't understand why
they may have opinions
but I hope they aren't ones you buy

You may think it's easier
to sit down and hide
but I see you as you are
my eyes are open wide

You are who you are
don't let anyone tell you you're less
you are the one
that knows yourself the best

Come out from behind that wall, my dear

Enjoy life as love grows

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Saturday, September 26, 2009, In : Spiritual 

Inspired by the "Wifey for Lifeys"

I see you for who you are
this day and in every form
there is nothing wrong with you
you are my beacon in the storm

We have weathered a few, haven't we?
The rain, thunder and lightning fears
the threats of being swept away
the heartbreak and tears

We've managed to survive in it
wait, we've actually thrived
because we've learned with every misstep
there is a new path to find

Your love has made me better
I never believed you were real
you touched the soft pa...

The Forest

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Friday, September 25, 2009, In : Spiritual 

I'm in the middle of it

right in the middle of it, I think

I can't really see

from where I am

 

It's dark, well, sort of

I see some light

but I can't really figure out

how I get out of here

 

I see different paths

but I can't see clearly

the trees are blocking my views

and making me confused

 

Maybe I should keep moving

get out of the middle of this

maybe I should follow the light

the light that I can barely see

 

So I move, at times it may be slow

I may need to sit agai...
