Burst Into You.

Dear friends,
This is the time of year I take a few weeks off to recharge my art and poetry soul. It’s my summertime Sabbath for the next few weeks. I’ll be back the 2nd or 3rd week in August with new offerings. As always, thank you for your readership and engagement. Much love, Ally


“If you cling to your life, you will lose it, and if you let your life go, you will save it.” Luke 17:33 NLT

There is
nothing more
I desire
than for you
to burst into
yourself. into
who you are.

I hear you talk about
the veneer of your day,
yet know you have
an invisible world
of bells and whistles
humming inside
your being —
where your
dream lives and
ideas churn.

has the sound of your bell subdued?
the shimmer of your whistle lost luster?

Well, then
maybe you need a
summertime sabbath—

time to dip your hands into ocean water,
crunch your toes on mountain leaves or
nap quiet in a swaying hammock

wherever you need to go to hear
the sound of you again
(the sound of you loving yourself again) —
please. go there.

if I could walk the steps for you,
I would.
but, the truth is,
this is a choice you have to make for yourself.
you have to decide. you have to take action.
on behalf of yourself.

yes, you matter.
yes, you are loved.
yes, you deserve the time.

Lay down the belief
you must make others happy first.

Joy is gained
when you release your grip on life
to listen and linger
with the questions of the soul:

Who lives within?
Why am I here?
What is the gift I bring to the feast of life?

Do you hear the still small voice?
What it thirsts for? Of course there is risk.
This is the free fall Spirit calls you toward.

Will you—

unlock the door
that’s been calling you
since time began?

When you do,

I’ll be waiting to welcome
and celebrate your
star-spangled entrance.
