The Adventures

By Amba Gale

Oh, sleek, slim, tall masted
        sailing ship,
        anchored so gracefully
        outside my window, beckoning
me to all the places
I have yet to go, inside and out,
you call to me.

Now, I travel miles
        each day
        inside
        to the still place
        to turn a fleet of worthies
        toward the light,

coming out of darkness, as we all have been,
        cocooned in separated wombs,
        some broken,
        some whole.

We can now emerge,
reveal our late protected hearts.

We want to weep
        to grieve
        to laughe
        to hug
        to see the light
        to show our fears and faces,
        hidden for two years to the world,
to let love in
to let love out
to say, “I am here!”
“Hug me!”
Feel my heart near yours.

Touch me.
Let me touch you.

I invite you to love me,
to acknowledge my glorious imperfection,
to see who I am.

Presence comes first. Astonishment rushes in a brief moment after. Wonder follows, then these words of love to you. Bothered, ensnared, engulfed by all my worries, I have been asleep. Your sudden appearance and my willingness to be surprised meet and hold hands.…

Creating Spaciousness

Breathe. Let the light that is all around you enter through your crown chakra. Let it penetrate your Being. Feel The warmth of the fire within you. Know that you are loved. Align all the energies. Let them converge as one in the center of your Being. Breathe. Create space in time. All will come to pass in its own time. Don’t try to rush things. Breathe. Create room in time. Those creative possibilities are beautiful, all in their own time. Give yourself the gift of room in time. Let this knowing in your body and your heart lead the…
