Before I start this, I want to make something clear. This post is not coming from a man who has had an easy time his whole life with women. In fact, I have had my heart broken more times than I care to admit. I have shed tears, been betrayed in the worst of ways and have been made to feel unimportant, almost to the point where I thought I didn’t exist. And even through all of this, I can still put my heart on the line for women because I believe in one fundamental reality.

Women are beautiful.

Last night, one of my best friends sent me an article and asked for my thoughts. So I opened it up and read the first line. “I’m just gonna come out and say it: I love insecure women.” I closed my eyes, took a deep breath and continued reading on for…

Ladybug Love

2013-10-07 12.30.23The Italians say they’re lucky

It’s a gift when they land on you

With elegance that’s fun and sporadic

They appear magically, alighting on me

Vibrant, bold red, distinct black dots

Just so delightful to look at

No wonder they bring good luck

They remind me to be silly

To think on pretty things

Their button-shaped bodies

Inspiring me to think creatively

They never stay long

They know they don’t really need to

Ladybug love never takes long

It can never be taken away

Bringing feelings that all will be fine

A gift of nature and life

Lite and beautiful

Just down-right lovely

As are so many things

Listening Deeply

A power overlooked

Is to listen with all of me

This is harder than it appears

Closing my eyes may help me

At times many thoughts crowd

A jumble of noise within me

It flows into awareness

Hearing what’s outside now within me

Listening recognizes and honors

Accepting all as part of me

Allowing all to be as it is

Not afraid that it touches me

Fall leaves of changing colors gliding

Winter flakes in white crystals covering

Spring emerging through flowers growing

Eternal sun radiating warm energy flowing

Listen…listen deeply…Love resounding

A lost sense awakening within me
