INVISIBLE, by Joan Ellen Gage

 

bird nest 2 signed

Invisible

See me, do you

see me?

I am here, and

exist, just

because I am

hidden in my

nest, just

because I don’t

call to you,

does not mean

I am

invisible.

You are caught up

in your lives,

staying with the

familiar. You

disremember I

am still here, you

forget, and I don’t

want to be

needy, so I

stay in my nest, and

try to

sing.

Aflame, poetry and photo-creation by Joan Ellen Gage

AFLAME TITLED BEST

Aflame

Have you discovered that

you are not alone in this world?

Humans cannot exist on this planet as an island of one.

And, have you found your

Higher Power, Spirit, God, or

whatever you choose to call him/her/it?

Have you plugged your “adaptor”

into this power source, and experienced

enlightenment, and/or a power surge?

We must believe that our existence

is much more than just that.

Find what ignites your heart of hearts,

be drawn in like moth to flame.

Glow with inner fire;

life will never be the same!

We are Unfinished Works of Art, photo and poem by Joan Ellen Gage

Magical Karen framed quote JEG

Excerpt from: “A Woman for all Ages,” from A Redhead Looks at 60, by Joan Ellen Gage

As time passes, we need to deal with

and understand, what lessons each decade teaches us.

Hopefully we learn and embrace the wisdom

from our experiences, and in turn,

these life lessons flesh out

who we are becoming, and who we grow to be.

We are unfinished works of art,

the book not yet completed,

the half-carved sculpture,

to be unveiled by the universe,

and not at a time of our choosing.

Let the journey unfold, and may your story be told!

Be here, seize the now. Poetry and Photography, by Joan Ellen Gage

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

THE ZONE

While sequestered as a willing tenant in

your self-made prison of busyness

dream of ways you can be free

To give yourself the gift of

a precious few moments, no distractions

lock out your outer life and meditate

Find that it is almost a new experience

as you may have forgotten the sensation

of pure awareness, and nothing else

So used to being the amazing balancing act

you‘ve found it hard to stop doing and planning

and just become still

Discover that one can see so much clearer

when traveling at

the speed of now

The Zone–Traveling at the Speed of Now

BUDDA 3 x 5 CS Version pattern Framed 2

THE ZONE

While sequestered as a willing tenant in

your self-made prison of busyness

dream of ways

you can be free

To give yourself the gift of

a precious few moments

 no distractions

lock out your outer life and meditate

Find that it is almost a new experience

as you may have forgotten the sensation

of pure awareness

 and nothing else

So used to being the amazing balancing act

you‘ve found it hard to stop doing and planning

and just become still

Discover that one can see so much clearer

when traveling at

the speed of now
