Lighten Up, poetry and digital art by Joan Ellen Gage

Cloudy Sky and Full Moon

Lighten Up!

May I ask, have you forgiven yourself, lately,

for all things real or imagined,

for your transgressions, your thoughts,

against yourself, against others?

 

Take yourself to task, look inside,

and be gentle with what you may find.

Put these “sins” behind you and embrace your life,

your blessings, with a heart full of love.

 

Know that there are “angels” surrounding you,

cheering you on, lifting you up.

So, let in your light,

and you will “lighten up!”

 

from the book, A Redhead Looks at 60,

When I Decide, poem and photo-creation, by Joan Ellen Gage

Karen in Key horizontal 2 signed

 

When I decide, I’ll let me know

 

Chasing my own

tail, pondering, do I

stay, or do I

go?

Do I hold the

key, am I the

key? When will I

know?

ARISE FROM YOUR ASHES,poetry and photo-creation by Joan Ellen Gage

MY LAST CHANCE BEST

Arise from Your Ashes

 

The dream is still alive and waiting. It

waits for you to restore it to wholeness, and

inhale life into the

very lungs of hope, to

deliver the kiss to your

sleeping beauty heart’s desire.

The time has come to break into the

vault of your psyche and

free the urn of creativity,

turning life’s ashes into a new vision.

Come unearth your treasure; stake

your claim, rediscover your destiny. Join me,

arise from your ashes, rise up; be reborn!
