Bright Light

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Monday, February 16, 2015, In : poetry 
Bright light, you are true.
There are those that would
try to dim you - 
put a lampshade on you,
soften you, direct you.
But look at you, 
nothing stops you from 
shining everywhere,
filling the room,
showing off all over.
You surround those
in your view with
delicate pieces of
connections to make
it better than it was.
Not everyone is like you,
Bright Light,
not everyone shows
their gorgeous glows.
But you beam fearless
into the eyes 
of all who observe you.
So Bright Light,
just be you.  
All others pale

The Hermit Times

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Tuesday, November 13, 2012, In : Articles 

This time of year usually makes me miss summer and the longer days.   I look forward to the Winter Solstice for us to gain a minute of light everyday.   With the sun setting around 4:30 in the afternoon and our nights getting longer, I think about how the darkness can affect us.  And by darkness, I don't mean anything that is evil or sinister.  It is actually an opportunity to look at things differently because our sight and reactions must be different when the stillness arrives.

The Ripples of Our Decisions

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Monday, November 12, 2012, In : Articles 

One of my favorite movies is "Wanted" starring Angelina Jolie.  It's an action movie, very heavy on the action aspects.  It shows the transformation of one character, Wesley, as his life gets turned upside down when he learns, and ultimately embraces, who he truly is.  


There is a line from that movie that always sticks with me.   In explaining why Fox (Angelina Jolie) joins "The Fraternity" of Assassins, she says to Wesley, "We don't know how far the ripples of our decisions go."

Magnificent Sights

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Friday, May 11, 2012, In : poetry 

Find your peace
Be in the center
More than you know
This place is yours

Be the owner
Over the others
Blend with the Universe
Rise above the rest

Experience the Bliss
The childlike wonder
Draped in stars
Followed by overwhelming light

More to it all
Open your eyes
You can grasp it
And make it real

It’s all about you
Where you find it
Where you keep it
What’s in your soul

Look there now
Don’t be afraid
There are magnificent sights
Waiting to be seen.

The Air

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Monday, May 2, 2011, In : poetry 
I feel the air around me
cradling me, hold me
I need strength during
a challenging time.
The air doesn't let me go.
I hear its whispers,
I feel its gentle caresses
I listen, I hear, I know.
The air doesn't stop
even when it's quiet.
It opens my ears
and my heart
to listen to the words
of spirit and the words
that come from my heart.
I just have to listen.
Turn off all the other noise
and step out into the sky,
fly away and float,
in the inspiration
of the air that I breathe.
