Departure.

Liberated
into the haven
of a mausoleum
lies a dove deceived-
its tattered pinions
a reminder of
a pledge riven
a reverie tainted
an innocence
betrayed…

Exposed.

Banish her tears.

Let the
wake of
gliding swans
carry them over
cherry blossom tides
along ivied lines of a
longing unearthed
and into a soul
laid bare
for you.

Renewal.

Renewal

Reveries
grounded in clouds
swayed by zephyr’s whims
she is a lily bulb in the dust
redolent of fated blooms-
her longing a master
to the morning sun
in the vineyards
of En Gedi.

She.

Beauty
weaved from
gossamer threads.
Passions florid
fed by
flames.
Strength
of diamonds-
loveliness undying.
You are a woman, exquisite.

To Let Go.

Despair.

Asphyxiated by the device
meant to grant you life
you pleaded to be released.

Lines running
through your veins
fighting to give you strength-
they only imprisoned you.

You-
always present
aware of the
commotion about you.
Bustling nurses
weeping children
through it all
your eyes were
locked onto mine.

“Help me let go” was your plea.

You grabbed my hand
shook your head
as if you knew this act
had been playing
long enough.
As if someone had
interrupted your journey
toward the place
you were meant to go.

So we released you.
Withdrew your tube
diminished your drips.

Severed the chains that bound you.

We comforted you.
You turned
toward your children.
Through a surge of strength
you assured them
it would be okay-
that through your going on
they would go on.

Then you turned back to me.

Though undeserving
of your last moments
you entrusted them to me.
You held my hand
held my gaze.

“Thank you,” was what you said.

And then you took your last breath.

And let us go.

Let Us Not Live in Vain.

If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain;
If I can ease one life the aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin
Unto his nest again,
I shall not live in vain.

Sanctum.

From

waning buds

to fragrant blooms

withered blossoms

now renewed

amethyst petals

lace the ground…

Your words are

a ballad to

the

soul.

Just a Simple Hello 💙

they must be felt with the heart.”

Heartburn: What You Should Know

Heartburn

Heartburn. It’s something that hardly needs an introduction. Most people have experienced it at least once in their lifetime. For some, it’s an occasional annoyance; for others, a serious medical problem. But what discerns one from the other? When and why should it be treated? And what exactly can be done about it? These are the questions that will be addressed today.

Canvas.

Imprisoned
to the depths
of turbid waters
long submerged
is the weight of
a bruised heart
its flesh marred
by the beating
of a tide’s unrest.

Numbed
are her fists upon
splintered walls
the scarlet flow
of secrets divulged
onto a tapestry-
a living portrait
unveiled
for all to see.

9 Simple Moves for Low Back Pain

Back Pain

The human back. That complex arrangement of overlapping muscles, tendons, and ligaments all surrounding an adjoined column of bones encasing a half-meter-long bundle of delicate nerves that serves as the essential link between the brain and the rest of the body. Add to this the constant twisting, bending, and other stresses wreaked on this crucial structure, and it is no surprise why back pain is one of the most common medical problems plaguing adults, with over 80% having experienced it at least once in their life…with many enduring it on a chronic basis.

Fortunately, for many people, there are things that can be done to reduce low back pain and to prevent it from reoccurring in the future. This article will focus on one of the most effective ways—physical conditioning of the back—by guiding you through nine easy, low-impact moves that will improve its strength and flexibility…

Do You Know You Are Wonderful?

Lately, I’ve been telling an old friend of mine how wonderful the Wordpress community is (at least the little snippet of it that I know). I’m always amazed at how a community of people who have never met, and are so different, can be so kind and supportive of one another. Because of that, I really wanted her to ‘meet’ you guys, since she very recently started blogging and wants to connect with others. Aside from giving her blogging tips, I specifically wanted to connect her with those of you that I already know, because, simply put, you guys really warm my heart (and secretly, I feel that you guys are the coolest bloggers on wordpress!) So that is the purpose of this post.
