The Lover

 

www.jodiburke.com

Waves of Emotion

 

As I pulled back the covers

and slipped out of bed

I knew

it would be the last time

that I would be with my lover,

We had connected

and made passionate love,

yet, in the moments after,

came that feeling

of uncertainty

yet knowingness

that the energy had shifted

between us,

the conversation still flowed

as we made coffee together

laughter

smiles

sweet little kisses,

Yet underneath it all

the ending was near,

not a bad word spoken

as there was not a regret

as the last kiss

was shared between us,

Only a love was shared,

of two souls coming together

that knew with out words,

that they have met

many times before,

and that this,

was just a passing moment,

in another life time

of the eternal now.

Language of the Soul

www.jodiburke.com

Energy

Are you listening

to the call

from you Soul

it’s that longing

that keeps getting

pushed down

it’s the emptiness

that never fills up

it’s that loneliness

that never leaves

it’s that doubt

that you keep dancing with

and it only gets

louder

the dreams get more distant

the heart gets more

shut down

as

that is the

language of the Soul

the access point

where you can meet

and connect

learn to speak

the language of the Soul

by opening your heart

its the only language

which is a vibration

the Soul knows

as it wants you to remember

the magic

that comes alive

in your life

when you open your heart

and speak

the language of your Soul

It’s called The Magical Mystery Tour

No I wasn’t on anything while creating this one 🙂

it was created for fun and to see if I could – all about learning new skills

but

What IF……

you could take a magical mystery tour,

where would you go?

That is what is so cool about imagination!!

Dance by the Light of the Moon

Dance by the Light of the Moon – let the Magic out!

As she danced by the light of the moon, she found more of herself.

When was the last time you dance barefoot in the grass or sand, under the light of the moon with music playing in the background

and you got so lost in the music, in the twirling and whirling of dancing,

in the beauty of the moment of now,

where nothing else mattered

time stood still,

and you were lost in your own world

where you felt a high like never before

on life itself,

and you felt oh so free.

When was the last time you danced barefoot

under the moon?

Magic is always outside of your

comfort zone

especially when we let go of the constructs of

‘how we should be’.

Go dance and let your soul free.

It’s calling you to come dance

even if the moon isn’t out!!

Can You Hear the Music of Your Heart Beat?

 

I tried to dance with life

yet I forgot how,

see, through all the programming

dancing really isn’t allowed

Conform

Be Good

What will the neighbours think

I am told,

so now life has me waiting on the sidelines

hoping and anticipating

that maybe,

just maybe

I’ll dance again.

As a child

I danced all the time

to my own beat of my heart

until the music was turned way down,

fit in

don’t stand out

this is how it should be

I am told

yet

no one asked me

if it was aligned with my heart

so the music stopped

yet that is where I will find my music again

that only I can hear

and then

and only then

will I be able to dance again,

life has been calling me to dance

has it for you as well?

Then go dance and go within

so you too can hear the music

of your own heartbeat

The Calling of the Soul

The Calling of the Soul

www.jodiburke.com

Your Soul is Calling – can You hear it??

 

comes through in heartaches

in shutting down

in denial of one’s truth,

when the Soul whispers

to get one’s attention

we can answer that whisper

or choose to ignore it

discount it

push that longing down

with words and feelings of

one day I’ll do that or

there’s not enough time or

gotta make more money

and

by wearing many masks of who we aren’t,

yet the Soul

lives in the eternal

moment of now

and patiently waits

for one to respond

to the calling of their Soul

yet the more one is shut down

disconnected

or in denial

to the calling of their Soul,

the more the calling turns to a cry…….

so listen to the calling of your Soul

for it will guide you home

where true freedom lives

My Heart

My Heart…….

www.jodiburke.com

Liste to Your Heart

 

is breaking

and I don’t know why

as I bought into

all of societies norms

and conformed

and in the process

I lost myself…..

my heart is breaking

and I don’t know why

it’s not the lovers that leave me

why my heart is breaking

as I always feel so alone

could it be me

who really abandoned me

as the lovers

are just reflecting that

back to me

in this illusion called living and life

did I lose myself with them

or

had I already lost myself

when I conformed

in the world

that makes it seem

so natural and normal

to do so

yet

when I wake up each morning

and my heart is breaking

and I am alone

I often wonder

if conforming is the price I pay

for losing myself

along the way………..
