For the love of ferns­čî┐

I don’t know, 

maybe I’m fucking crazy 

But I swear I can feel the trees in my veins,

they are begging to take me home.

The wind is starting to become a part of me,

making love to my soul.

Maybe it’s fucking mad 

But the birds keep talking to me,

they think I’m one of them.

My feet in the soil and I’m disappearing 

No.

I’m returning.

I don’t know how much longer I can stand this,

the river might just take me home.

The only thing I ask, 

is that you come with. 


When I’m gone

If ever you wake up and find that I am gone,

I beg you not to ask that I come back. 

And when you miss me so much that your heart starts to ache,

you can find me in the rivers and I will teach you about change. 

When you’re lost and needing direction, 

follow me in the wind and I will guide you through the darkness. Help you learn how to let go. 

When you feel trapped and it seems that there is no way out, 

see me in the birds. I will show you the only way to be free. To trust the beauty that is in your wings. 

When you look around and see nothing but death,

I ask you to seek me in the trees. I will teach you to about life and how to appreciate your every breath.

If ever you wake up and find that I am gone,

know that I only went home.

I will play you a song unlike any you’ve ever heard. I will show you the magic in the trees, the beauty of a bird. 
I will slowly unwrap all the lies that you’ve been told, reveal to you why we mustn’t all fit the same dirty mold. 
I will set your soul on fire with the passion in my heart. Teach you that you must let go long before you ever start. 
I will carefully take apart your cage and set the pieces to the side. You will see that in true freedom, there is no reason to hide. 
I will show you how to speak to the moon in a way that will make you cry. And when all is said and done, I will softly whisper goodbye.

A New Year (Reflections Part 1)

A new year.

An ending and a beginning.

This should mean more to me than it does I suppose. I guess it’s a reason, an excuse, to start over, to try harder. To reflect. To let go.

I’ve always thought it odd how we measure our lives in years. We look back and say “that was a bad year” or “what a great year it’s been.” How would our lives change if we measured in days. If every day we woke up and decided to try harder, to set new goals, to reflect. To let go. To be present.

Instead of waking up a year from now and wondering what could have been done differently, we can set our intentions in the morning and meditate at night. We can live fully in the moment.

This is something I’ve been working on a lot recently.

Falling in love with the present moment. Taking the time to breath in the beauty that surrounds me. The trees, the moon, the rivers and the rocks. Feeling the wind and rain, the sun on my skin.

Letting go of trying to be who people think I should be and embracing who I am. Accepting that I am different. Letting go of fear and doubt.

To see people not for who I want them to be but to love them as they are. Closing my eyes and feeling their energy. Feeling the connection.

These simple yet powerful actions can bring me to tears. I’m often overcome with love and gratitude so intense all I want to do is lay down, close my eyes and soak it up. Its an amazing feeling of being right where I should be.

Knowing that it’s all so perfect.
