I am trilled to announce Tami Hoffman’s new blog Soulelevations, so dear to my heart. I am amazed with Tami’s multi-media blogging skills. Short poems elevate and often serve as daily mantras. You can greatly expand your consciousness and wisdom following this blog–highly recommended.
A few years ago I met Tami in a professional setting at the local college, and at that time, I have never dreamed how much we have in common expressing creatively paths of spirituality. My creativity sprouts from a sense of a meditative solitude growing from the roots of tragic or joyous experiences or/and feelings. The creative process is there to overcome darkness and point to the light of an artistic and creative expression, where truth liberates. When I read Tami’s daily short poems, I see the same process unfolding. Enjoy recent Tami’s posts. So excited to share with you.
My mind serves as a prison
words all crowded in confinement
scattered in thought..chained to fear
unwritten and unspoken
Noisy demons playing too loud
My lips fall silent… hiding behind my smile
A slice of regret
A crumb so meager..grasping tightly
taste the spit
Overwhelming stentch crowds her senses…
He relishes.. a simple savory bite
bitter and rotten
he slithers away
Melting drops of Sun
dripping, wet, sticky, and sweet
Then a narrow passageway
Jarring spokes of Sorrow
escaping, dry, dirty, and bitter
Feeling alone surrounded by hues of blue
Can you see me
Sinking in an interior where no man dare
untouched fields, smooth waves of blue
I wander without a map…
Awakening in the deception of sleep
My vision dances beneath
All the while…
Darkness binds my eyes shut.
Tami, hope you enjoy the choice of the ambiental music! It sticks on the soul…., but also elevates.
