Wind Whisperer

There’s a saying when something happens unexpectedly and your world turns upside down: ‘When one door closes, a window opens.’

It’s been true in my life. I never know exactly how things are going to turn out, however, my heart lets me know.

Within my heart rests the One who knows all.

My choice is to make time to be still, listen, and follow the Whisperer of Love and Guidance. ~ Anita Adams 8/2019

Transition

that place in-between

not knowing where you’re headed

and what will be


a place where only Faith can lead


a time for prayer and meditation

served with a glass of mint tea, sunshine and gurgling water

company visits in the form of an occasional hummingbird, butterfly or dove

Transition calls for Faith in the unknown and unseen


for the window to open

space for fresh air and breath

Time to let go and Believe where one will be led will be safe and free

No Longer Living Behind the Veil

Exposed, vulnerable, scars are deep – some go unseen – just look in the eyes of another – the terror and torture of mind and body no longer hidden – beckons for love and light

Slowly she heals, one scar at a time with rhythm and rhyme

clock tick tocks- life marches on in the dark – glints of reason, art and season percolate in mind and heart

paper and pen flow within formulating words of comfort and glim

time is of the essence or so it seems until the pendulum swings back to start

healing takes time – be gentle they say – the ones who’ve trodden this road before – the ones whose hearts move like the sea gliding over the sandy shore –

healing takes time and this time is reminiscent of a time long ago, a time that only the soul knows ~ Anita Adams 6/8/2019

Let it Go!

It’s okay to be angry !

Write about It.

Let It out.

Don’t bottle It up.

It doesn’t like It.

Treat It like a tea kettle.

Monitor Its heat.

Allow the steam to come out slowly until the heat becomes a hiss and a hiss a whistle, then a quiet hiss.

Let it go.

Sometimes It simmers.

Don’t stuff It with a sock, or beat It up with a rock.

Make friends with the angry one – the It.

Afterall, the angry one was once the kind one and the kind one was once the angry one. You see, they are one in the same. They were both an It.

Make peace with both.

Afterall, they’re both human.

It’s okay to be angry as long as peaceful resolutions evolve.

Let It go like the tea kettle – nice and slow.

Let It all go before the head falls to the pillow, before the feet touch the floor.

Let It go!

Let it Go! – Like the songbirds flying into the wind!

Sounds and Sights of Spring

Bluejays, cardinals, mockingbirds, bluebirds, finches, doves and crows grace the backyard oasis on the first day of spring.

Blooming yellow forsythia and a bank of periwinkle with a Lenten rose in full bloom surround the waterfall as the goldfish swim in the pond below.

Grateful for ears that hear and eyes that see.

Grateful for Spring and all that spring brings.

Looking for a Word

It’s cold and damp this February morning in the Appalachia mountains – bluejays, cardinals and squirrels are confused by the signs of a very early Spring – scattered with drops of freezing temperatures.

I, too, feel somewhat confused by the seasons lack of consistency . Winter is a necessary part of nesting, creative percolating – a time that’s been interrupted by an climate change.

Will the Spring come too soon and all be destroyed with the many frosts that should be forthcoming?

The word is a question and question is the word.
