Following a path set before me

With light, color, and beauty

I tread lightly yet soundly

My eyes on the destination

 

The road bends and the sky darkens

Rain pours, soaking my clothes and my outlook

With a heaviness not easily lessened

My feet grow tired and the path turns to mud

 

Each step takes effort

And I can no longer see the journey’s end

Where is my guide to lead me on

So that I can move forward

 

I fall to the earth, my ear to the ground

And I listen to the sounds Mother Nature creates

Though my body aches and my spirit sags,

I summon my strength and stand

 

I move ahead, determination and focus my motivation

The colors are brighter though the rain still falls

The sounds are heightened though the storm clouds clatter

The trees remain standing though the wind roars

And I walk on as both a part and a whole.

 

**I am an Artistic Spirit! For most of my life I’ve used the creative arts as a source of spiritual exploration and healing, even though I didn’t always do so consciously. Sometimes I was the instrument creating the art and other times I was on the receiving end. The connection between art and spirituality is so significant in my life that it’s infused into everything I do. I love music, theatre, television drama series (daytime and primetime), and creative writing and find fulfillment in artistic expression of various sorts: singing, acting, and jewelry design. Throughout the next 12 days, I’ll delve into how all of the above strengthens my spirit and has saved my life on more than one occasion.**
