Dear July…

… it’s you, since no one else makes sense.

”There’s beauty in simplicity.”

July, I can’t believe you’re almost here. I don’t even know if I’ll have time to say goodbye to June. She is warm, she is lovely, filled with laughter. Please, be like June. Please, be forever. Please bring us humid days, foggy nights. Soul searching and loving kindness.

It has always been you, dear July. Always been you.

5 am. Finding stillness. Seeking magic. Being free as the ocean, beautiful as the wildest flower. Inhaling confidence, exhaling doubt. Breathing in the warm days, short nights. Wide awake, we are, while watching the sunset gracefully transforming into sunrise. I’ll be all there, wherever you’ll take me.

July is for meeting childhood friends who will always be friends although you meet far too seldom. It’s for being vulnerable, being soft. Finding that inner, burning fire. Moonlight, thunderstorm and heavy rain. Poetry filled with soul and passion, the wildest of dreams coming true. July is for festivity and reading books. July is for being me.

”Be careful who you make memories with. Those things can last a lifetime.”

– Ugo Eze

It’s time to feed our souls with burning fire. Burning passion. Breathing in nature and embracing every day with curiosity, bravery and kindness. It’s about doing one’s best. Accepting oneself. Loving oneself. Being aware, and learning from mistakes. It’s about knowing one’s worth, and having the ability to inspire other human beings. Improving the quality of life. Challenging the body. Loving the body. Loving life.

It’s about a life that’s flourishing and exciting. Beautiful and unexpected. It’s about life.

Awaken your creativity, dear human. Awaken your soul. Find the bright light within. Know that life is amazing, exactly as it is. You’re amazing. Every breath a sign that you are. We are. Cherish every heartbeat, every sunrise. Every tear. It all happens right before your very eyes; hearts illuming, red roses blooming. Breathtakingly beautiful this precious moment alive.

Dear July, I welcome you. Teach us, how to become one with what is, within and without. Still and alert. Precisely as nature at 5 am. Promise dear, you’ll keep us safe. Darling promise, this time your burning sunlight will last forever. Darling remember, wake me up before you disappear.

The flow of life

”Destruction breeds creation.”

Life is a series of natural, and spontaneous changes. In order for us humans to obtain peace and happiness it’s vital that we become comfortable with everything that’s unfolding; circumstances taking place, feelings and emotions running through our bodies, as well as people dancing in and out of our lives. Change is the nature of life. It’s the nature of your being.

I believe the only rational thing for us to do is to embrace every aspect of life – the good and the bad, the highs and the lows, the love and the fear – whatever life may present us with, shouldn’t we just dive right in, and at least try our best in line with the moment we’re in. But what if there is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so, as William Shakespeare so neatly put it.

According to the Vedas (the primary texts of Hinduism) there is no such thing as good or bad, right or wrong. There are only creation -> maintenance -> destruction. Then back to creation. Flowing like a beautiful cycle. I listened to a Mindvalley podcast episode with Emily Fletcher where she talked about destruction as coming through to clean house. To not see destruction as something inherently bad, or something to avoid, but as something that is cleaning house, getting rid of the old, so that the new can enter (creation). Fletcher goes on explaining how the quality of our lives is determined by the quality of our questions. What can I innovate? What creation is coming through? How can I become more kind, more compassionate, not only to myself, but to others as well as the environment?

Asking more powerful questions is the beginning of a creative practise to envision a new world. As species we’re evolving, moving forward, and there’s no turning back. Now is the time to wake up as creators, and as innovators. And in what way will you choose to do that?

Michael A. Singer writes:

”You’re sitting on a planet spinning around in the middle of absolutely nowhere. Go ahead, take a look at reality. You’re are floating in empty space in a universe that goes on forever. If you have to be here, at least be happy and enjoy the experience. You’re going to die anyway. Things are going to happen anyway. Why shouldn’t you be happy? You gain nothing by being bothered by life’s events. It doesn’t change the world; you just suffer. There’s always going to be something that can bother you, if you let it.” (Michael A. Singer, the untethered soul)

Learning to let go of past experiences, situations, limiting beliefs and toxic emotions is a process, and sometimes it takes a great deal of patience to get rid of stuff that you know, deep down inside, doesn’t serve you. However, there are a couple of mindsets that can make the process flow more effortlessly. Let me present a few of my favorites.

I’m a sucker for romance

Allow things to unfold

”I embrace life.”

I like to think that everything in life happens for a reason; whether the reason is for you to learn more about yourself, find your true nature, and therefore evolve as a human being. You have to learn to accept and embrace all aspects of life. I believe this becomes easier the moment you stop defining yourself in relationship to the events that happen, to the struggles, to the mental chatter going on in your mind. You’re not your thoughts, you’re simply being aware of your thoughts. You’re not your emotions; you experience and feel your emotions. You’re not the events happening in your life; you experience these events – and how you choose to do that is up to you.

Relax & release

”I let go of the situation that no longer serves me.”

The more you learn to let go of the past, and the less you worry about the future, the more mindful and relaxed you become. Try not to over-think or obsess about the things out of your control. Instead change your mindset, learn to take in the moment, and always strive to do your best with what you’ve got. Aim for paradise, while flowing with the creation of the now.

I try to allow myself to not always be on top of things. You don’t have to resist feelings of pain, sadness, shame and failure – feelings of not being good enough. It’s totally human to feel downright sad and pessimistic from time to time. However, whatever you do, don’t inhabit this kind of negativity; be the observer, and make a conscious decision to release that which no longer serves you. Don’t let these emotions control you – you’re the one in power over your feelings. 

The decision lies within

I am fearless. I follow my heart.”

It’s up to you to decide if you want to be happy or not. Your happiness is not found within someone else’s hands, or some anticipated situation in the near future. Make the choice to be happy now, and you’ll notice that your path through life will become more fulfilling. How beautiful isn’t it that you have the power and ability to create the life you desire; the power lies within you. Don’t settle for average, when you have the opportunity to experience the extraordinary.

Take action, each and every day, towards your dreams. It’s your decision. Fall in love with the process of creating your life.

Gratitude is the attitude

”Love, abundance and happiness flow to me.”

A grateful mind is a loving mind. Always choose the grateful mind; a mind that can take you places beyond your wildest dreams. It’s easy to forget about all the beautiful things in our lives when we’re caught up in the midst of it all. Take time, every day, and stop for a while. Just stop, and breathe it all in – today won’t come again. Show appreciation to your comfy bed, the roof over your head, your job, the sun caressing your cheeks (or the rain pouring down) your family, and loved ones. There are always something to be grateful for. Life can be hard, but focusing on the bad stuff won’t make them go away. And if you choose to focus on them, focus on finding solutions to your problems. Simply nagging about things won’t bring any happiness to the situation.

With this being said, know that you possess a great deal of power over your life. For sure there are situations, and life changes that you simply don’t have control over. However, how you choose to react to these changes are completely up to you.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Meditate

”We can never run out of love,
it’s in the air we’re breathing.”

Awaken your creativity, dear human. Awaken your soul. Find the bright light within. Know that life is amazing, exactly as it is. You’re amazing. Every breath a sign that you are. We are. Cherish every heartbeat, every sunrise. Every tear drop. It all happens right before your very eyes; hearts illuming, red roses blooming. Breathtakingly beautiful this precious moment alive.

… and then fear asked courage

teach me

please teach me


it’s about a life
that’s flourishing
and exciting
beautiful
and unexpected
it’s about life

i see ocean
in your eyes
i smell the flowers
of your heart
every flaw
insecurity
cracked open
bleeding
soft raindrops
resting on your cheeks
a reflection of me
healing

Don’t let yourself
Be fooled
My soul
Not defined by
Its shell

speak
with no words
undress me
with your eyes
whatever you do
my feelings
playing
butterflies

it was the way
in which she wore
the color purple
in every word
smile and touch
even every breath
a hint of magic

Dear June…

… … it’s been a year since we last met. I can’t believe you’re almost here.

My soul talks about nothing but you.

I speak so much better when I’m silent. 4 AM sunrise. The world is quiet. My mind intense.”

June dear, nature must be head over heels for you, the way she blossoms when you arrive. I look at you, and wonder, out of all the months in the world, I’m happy to have found one that is so perfect for me. 

June is for hot, loving summer nights. Magical, never-ending evenings. The sun wide awake, but please, don’t go back to sleep, you’re one to keep. June is for finding the happy within. Smelling roses and counting stars. Eating strawberries and breathing in vitamin sea. June is for dancing with the waves, playing with nature, kissing the soft, morning rain. You’re impeccable, just the way you are. 

This June is all about not forcing things. What flows, flows. What crashes, crashes. There’s only space for the things that are meant for us. Beautiful words, beautiful beings. Life is happening right here. Now, is the time. It’s about speaking with integrity, expressing deeply rooted desires. Throwing out limiting beliefs, negative self-talk. It’s about becoming what we always knew we were. Trusting, and accepting oneself. Loving oneself. Don’t ever forget to smell the blessings around you. Don’t ever forget to be you. 

”Wild, my darling, be wild. Don’t let them tame you.”

I welcome you, my loving friend. I sense we’ll have a blast. Forgetting all about the past.

tell secrets to the sunset ♥

”The moon has secrets
for those who listen.”

 

 

don’t tell anyone

… i kinda like
to look at you
when you laugh

 

 

 

Found in the details

The way the ray of sunlight
touches your dark brown iris.
The way your voice
soothes my breath.
The way your fingers
entwine with mine.
The way every time
I hear you laugh
a blissful shiver
down my spine.
The way your presence
lingers underneath my skin,
long after you are gone.
The way your lips
heal my scars.
The way my touch
opens your heart.

 

 

To your fingertips

There’s a universe inside
A few.
I bet you
Never knew,
As I were
Undressing you,
Opportunities
Pouring out too.

 

 

Embrace life

Whatever the day brings,
kiss the Sun.
Whatever the night whispers,
kiss the Moon.
Whatever I say,
do,
kiss Me.

And if you think
his November rain
is too heavy,
you don’t deserve
his blossoming trees
early April.
He’s a once in a lifetime
season,
paving the way for
the winter,
and eventually
the spring.
This cycle of life,
cycle of you,
beautifully entwined,
while moving towards
the summer,
perfectly aligned.

– late night conversations with the Moon

 

 

Next to me

If I let you go,
will you return with the wind?
If I bury you underneath
my thoughts,
will you visit me in my dreams?
If I walk with my eyes closed,
will you sneak in,
with the beam of sunlight?


If I decide to wake up,
early dawn,
will you be breathing,
there,
next to me?

Solitude

”Even in the chaos,
don’t forget to kiss.”

There are times when we are fully engaged in the things happening in the outside world that we simply forget to connect with the vast world within. Rest assured; the more you listen to and trust your own unique voice things will start flowing more effortlessly, regardless of how chaotic life may seem. 

Every day trying my best to be comfortable with the uncertainty, not letting fear be a dominant factor in what I do. Instead, my goal is to take action to initiate change. Cause when nothing is certain, anything is possible. At times like these when the comfort has been taken away from us it’s time to lean towards growth.

And some days I fail miserably. Still and all, that’s part of being human. Nonetheless, the moment you start to see failure as a means to growth, you’ll become immune to it. As long as we learn from our experiences failure does not exist. You did not fail if it made you into a better human. In fact, it’s a sign of evolution.

This is a sign of evolution.

 

We learn a lot about ourselves just by being with ourselves. You might learn that you like to dress like a teenager instead of the grown-up you are. You might learn that you can read four books within a week. You might learn that you will never stop educating or challenging yourself, cause that’s what makes your brain come alive. You might learn that within all of us is a child, eager to come out and play. You might learn that your dreams might be a bit crazy, however, they are your dreams. Your heart. You might learn that you drink way too much coffee. Listen to music every waking hour.

You might learn that you are afraid of failure, still, you learn that you are more afraid of not trying. You might learn that you cherish the stillness, a star filled sky. You might learn that nothing in life is certain but change. Ever evolving, constantly dynamic. You might learn that the only way to live is to let yourself be invited to life’s dance. You might learn that you sometimes judge yourself, as well as others. And then you learn to accept yourself for being human. You might learn that when the mind is still, everything becomes clear blue sky. And then you learn that whatever life gives you, love is, and will always be, the answer.

It will always be the answer.

Slow living

”The only constant thing in life is change, hence adapt to the cycles, and surrender to all that is given to you.”

 

Little did I know what was waiting all of us when I wrote this in the beginning of the year. I guess, slow living is the-new-living in 2020.

⇓⇓⇓

One thing I want to bring with me into 2020 is the idea of ”slow living”. Taking into account that I’m a rather sensitive human I believe it’s a concept I’ll greatly benefit from. In fact I believe all of us can benefit from slowing down the pace, even for a tiny bit. More often than not this fast paced society triggers feelings such as worry, anxiety and stress. We constantly feel the pressure to have more, do more, be more. Never being satisfied, and continually seeking instant gratifications. Forgetting all about how to breathe in-between.

”You’re right where you need to be in order to get to where you want to go.”

I’ve noticed that the quieter my surroundings, the easier it becomes to hear my inner voice. My mind is one of those who like to constantly chitchat about this and that, and usually about weird, irrelevant topics. To be able to still the mind, and listen to what lies underneath is, however, my main purpose while seeking stillness. When the mind is turbulent it’s difficult to hear or see anything, nevertheless, when the mind is calm, everything becomes clear blue sky. I believe, that, within the stillness you find space. A space called home.

One doesn’t have to meditate in order to find peace of mind, however it might help. Needless to say, it’s not the minutes that count; it’s what you carry with you, after you’ve been sitting in silence – the patience, the alertness and a greater sense of awareness. Meditation is not sitting with no thought –  it’s letting the thoughts pass by, not dwelling, but simply being aware. It’s a perfect way to practise slow breathing, going within, and trusting oneself.

When seeking stillness you allow your brain to go beyond thought. You might for example struggle with a challenging task, and seek more intelligent ideas on how to proceed – when you allow your brain to unwind, and ”turn off”, hence getting rid of all the pressure, you allow your creativity to come alive, which in turn may lead to more creative solutions to your problem.

”Trust the seasons changing, trust your inner voice. It knows.”

There’s a special thing being one with nature, whether it’s watching the ocean, smelling the forest, hiking in the autumn mountains, taking a midnight swim or laughing up in the air. Nature has a tendency to teach us plenty; she teaches us how to be still, how to unwind and relax. When in nature, start practicing being more present – stay alert and witness the beauty she so effortlessly provides us with. Let her guide you home.

Another perfect opportunity to practice slow living is while eating. Taste your food, smell it, feel it. With every bite, be there. When you eat, you eat, you don’t scroll through social media, watch TV, sit infront of your computer, or talk with your friends on the phone. You eat, and with every delicious bite, you’re there. It’s the same when you’re preparing food; cooking can actually be the most perfect way to unwind. Chill music in the background, a glass of red wine, good company – and you just created the most perfect recipe for ultimate relaxation.

Exactly why is slow living good for you?

The main reason – you actually start enjoying life, and not just living life. You become more aware of the things happening around you, as well as within you. I don’t believe life is meant to be rushed, cause to where are you rushing? Your death bed? 

Sit with yourself, discover what makes your heart sing.

Take every chance you get to do the things that make you come alive. It doesn’t have to be anything huge; if you like to play the piano – play the piano, if you like to feed the poor – feed the poor, if you like to write – write. Don’t complicate things. And remember to smile. To laugh. Life should be enjoyed with pure bliss.

When you’re enjoying what you’re doing you easily reach that so called flow state. A state of being when time passes by without you even noticing. A state of being when you’re your most creative self. A state of being when you’re guided by your inner voice. A state of being that can only be described by the words pure bliss. Learn to look at life with the curiosity of a child. Embrace who you are – all of it, both the shadow and the light. Accept your darker sides, your shortcomings. It is with acceptance and awareness that we can start to begin to change.

The study of self

By taking time to slow down you allow yourself to fully appreciate all that is happening within you. In other words, it can be seen as the study of self.

Become curious. Curious enough to want to know more about yourself, and the ways in which you can expand. There’s so much to discover, and learn about life, about yourself and the people around you. When you spend precious, slow time alone you gain a better understanding of who you are, and what you desire in life. You may also come to appreciate other peoples’ company more, after spending hours by yourself.

When it comes to relationships you have the opportunity to be both the teacher, and the student. Therefore, start practising slow living when interacting with other people. What can you teach each other? In what way can you serve one another? How can you both benefit from the interaction? Start by listening without judgment. Listen to understand, not simply to respond.

Keep in mind that everything is positive as long as we learn from it. Learn to forgive yourself, and others. Relationships are our biggest teachers. Humans are social creatures, we’re not meant to sit in solitude day in and day out. We’re meant to interact with each other. We’re meant to evolve and change with the help from one another. You truly get to know yourself while communicating and spending time with a wide range of people. It’s a tremendous richness to get to spend time with humans that are different from ourselves – people that have a different outlook on life, speak a different language, as well as people with different life experiences.

With this being said, I strongly believe we all can benefit from introducing the concept of  ”slow living” into our hectic lives. Not only for the sake of our own wellbeing, but in the interest of gaining a deeper connection within our relationships.

Poetry is art

”Love – not simply a noun, but a verb craving to be felt.”

There’s a time for being ahead. A time for being at peace. There’s a time for being in motion. A time for being at rest. There’s a time for being vigorous. A time for being exhausted. To everything there’s a season. There’s a time for every purpose under the sun. 

The words above got stuck with me as I listened to them the other day.

No storm can last forever. Not even nature can create a storm that lasts forever. Hidden within every struggle is victory. Within every failure lies an opportunity. Hidden within yourself is everything you’ll ever need; power, love, compassion, joy, success and abundance. Every battle, and every difficulty molds you into a stronger human. As long as you know that you’re on the right path you’ll eventually end up where you want to go. There is and there was nothing like you, and there shall be nothing like you. Therefore, never seek to compare yourself with others. Nonetheless, let yourself be inspired by the people around you.

Realize that you don’t have any real control over how things will turn out. And isn’t that the beauty of life? To finally let go of the things beyond our control. Self-awareness is one of the most important elements when it comes to self-realization as it taps into the intuition and instinct. Trust the voice within; trust that you have all the answers you’re seeking. There are times when we’re so fully engaged in things happening in the outside world that we simply forget to connect with the vast world within. Rest assured; the more you listen to and trust your own unique voice things will start flowing more effortlessly, regardless of how chaotic life may seem.

”A journey of a thousand miles begins with one first step.”

– Lao Tzu

What better time then now to focus on how to enjoy life more fully, and bring what you desire to the world. What are you longing for? Now is the perfect time to start. Not tomorrow. Not next week or month. Now. A seed grows into a tree not in a wink of an eye, but with patience and humility over a period of time. A peaceful and calm mind is a powerful source of energy. Breathe new life into your being if that’s what you need. Listen to your body; what does it ask for? Rest? Action? Compassion? Excitement? Be still, and go within.

Advice for today (or any day for that matter); spend time in nature. Be playful, dance with her. Trust her. Walk barefoot if possible. Touch the grass, feel the ground underneath. Talk to the stars, laugh at the moon. Let the soft raindrops wash your troubles away. Embrace mother nature as she protects every step you take.

Take my hand,
inhale my breath,
we won’t die,
as long as we don’t fall
in love.

 

 

i see you in sunsets

in the light of
the Moon
in ocean waves
crashing ashore
in the purest snowfall
embracing the dark
in random smiles
i hear your laugh
in the simplest of things
where you always are

 

 

 

And if you think
his November rain
is too heavy,
you don’t deserve
his blossoming trees

He’s a once in a life time

Brief nanoseconds

What if we were just meant to
Look into each other’s eyes
For a brief second.
What if we were just meant to
Drown in that moment,
Just so we could learn how to swim.
What if we were just meant to
Wake each other up.
What if we were just meant to
Experience brief, flying moments.
Nanoseconds never felt before.
What if we are not meant to meet again.
What if I carry you within my heart.
What if you wouldn’t mind,
More of these brief nanoseconds.

 

 

You say my breath
Calms down
When I’m next to thee,
I say your eyes
Speak loudly
When they lay on me.
Not each others,
Still your breath
Pounds faster
When you’re next to me,
As my eyes tranquil
When they lay on thee.

 

when you least expect it,
come what may.
when you least deserve it,
or so you say.
it makes you question
all you’ve experienced
thus far,
everything from
life-on-earth
to your
inner-north-star.

 

 

Don’t promise me
Forever
Promise me
This moment
One sunrise
At a time

The tranquility of being

”Be still and observe – the earth is dancing.”

I am ”I just want to sit in front of the ocean for a little while” kind of person. Whenever I need to find stillness I go to the ocean. The sense of calmness, as well as the sound of crashing waves always bring peace to my soul. I’ve always lived close to the sea; I grew up on the coast, in a small town in Finland, and I’ve always seen myself living close to the water, also in the future. Wherever I move there needs to be water.

Water is life.

”A quiet mind is able to hear intuition over fear.”

I’ve noticed that the quieter I become, the more alive I feel. My mind is one of those who like to constantly chitchat about this and that, and usually about weird, irrelevant topics. To be able to still the mind, and listen to what lies underneath is, however, my main purpose while seeking stillness. When the mind is turbulent it’s difficult to hear or see anything; when it’s calm, everything becomes clear blue sky.

I believe, that within the stillness you find home.

I read somewhere that ”to spend time in nature is to witness a thousand miracles”, and isn’t that true. Nature is the best place to visit when one wants to get in the ”zone”, find inspiration or simply just be. I felt a lack of inspiration coming over me, but after some well needed time – listening to the sound of the waves, the feeling of the sun caressing my cheeks and the fresh air embracing my skin – my mind is clearer and filled with more space for creativity to enter. Thank you, dear Nature.

There is nothing more relaxing and rejuvenating than observing nature. Finding stillness while for example hiking in the forest or in the mountains will do wonders for your entire being. Escaping the real world for a couple of hours, or even days, might boost your creativity and feed it with new flourishing insights.

Below you’ll find some other ways which might help you spark your creativity.


  • Tap into your body through movement. Working out has many health benefits, not only does it affect your body, building up your cardiovascular health and slowing down your ageing, but your headspace will feel much clearer. When you’ve crushed out a great workout you’re ready to crush out even more things during the day – to accomplish the tasks you’ve at hand, getting more productive. Soon you’ll notice that your body and mind will start to work with you, rather than against you.
  •  Read. I advice you to read something totally different from what you’re used to. If you’re used to reading fiction, read some kind of study or scientific research. Or if you mainly read scientific studies; read a novel. Change things up. I read three books last week; one was a thriller, the second one a self-help, and the third a non-fiction. A little bit of everything, in order to challenge the brain.
  • Free write. If you’re one of those who suffers from writers block, and writing is your job, then I would advise you to just write. Write about everything, and nothing – put down all of your thoughts on a piece of paper. It doesn’t have to be great – get rid of the pressure of having to constantly deliver something awesome all the time. However, many times when we get rid of stress, and stop being so hard on ourselves, things start to work with us, rather than against us.

  • Reconnect with your why. It’s very easy to get caught up in every day life that we tend to forget about why we’re doing certain things. Reestablish your why and the reasons you’re doing what you’re doing. Connect with your purpose – write down why you like to do the things you’re doing, what would you like to accomplish and why would you like to accomplish it? If you end up realising that you hate what you’re doing than look at it as a tremendous opportunity to tap into yourself, to find your why again.
  •  Change up your routines. Spice up your life by making small adjustments; wake up one hour earlier every morning, try out a new hobby, meet up with a friend you haven’t seen in a while, read a book instead of watching a movie, try out new foods, take a different route to school or work. These tiny things might not end up having the greatest impact in your life, but changing up your habits can keep you from getting into a rut.
  • Clean. For me, personally, cleaning is rather therapeutic. When I feel unmotivated and uninspired it helps a lot to either rearrange things in the apartment or to get rid of junk I don’t need. When things are neat and tidy around me I feel refreshed, and ready to get on with my day.
  • Write your future. Before doing this exercise I like you to get rid of self-doubt and thoughts such as ”I’m not good enough, I can’t achieve my goals” etcetera. Just for once, for 20 minutes, allow yourself to dream freely. What are your deepest desires? How would you like your future to look like? While doing this exercise write as if it has already happened. Don’t use words such ”I want” or ”I wish”, rather use the word ”I am”. If you could have the life you’ve always dreamt of what would it look like? Be as detailed as possible. You might feel silly while doing this, thoughts might pop up in your head; ”Do you really believe that you could do that?” Why? Why are we doubting ourselves all the time? Wouldn’t it be nice if we once and for all allowed ourselves to be exactly who we wished to be? And you know what, you might not end up achieving all of your amazing goals, but at least you dared to dream, dared to believe in yourself. And that, my friend, is bloody amazing.

n.a.s.a

”Listen to the universe while it sings to you. Don’t wait until it screams, cause it will.”

 

I believe your cold breeze sings to me, as your gloomy night speaks to me. My quiet thoughts secretly in love with your dark, fierce character, however, be gentle, be kind, summer still on my mind. While I’m reading you slowly I’ve become aware, beneath that brisk, unpredictable wind, lies a warm, delicate soul, teaching us all how to grow. Quiet the mind, dance with every breath. Now is the time to set all worries aside, rise above limiting beliefs and self-destructive behavior. Awaken to a new confidence, forceful as the strongest brittlest wind. Found within. It takes courage to be who you are. Always found within.

 

… and then fear asked courage – please teach me.

Teach me everything you know,

like the way you always succeed making life strangely appealing.

The way the ray of sunlight touches your dark brown iris. The way your voice soothes my breath. The way your fingers entwine with mine. The way every time I hear you laugh, a blissful shiver down my spine. The way your presence lingers underneath my skin, long after you’re gone. The way your lips heal my scars. The way my touch opens your heart.

 

 

love me
in such a way
that makes me feel

free

 

 

… but if the universe cries
when she sees us apart,
then, my Love,
I will share with you
this heart.

 

 

Do not fear, Silly boy.
As long as you give her
space to breathe,
and an embrace from where to roam,
she will always return home.

– late night conversations with the Moon

 

 

If you seek love
breathe love.

Darling,
breathe me.
