LAKE MELT- By ElizaBeth Coira

Lake Melt_ElizaBeth Coira_HomeGrownSojourner



The fish are waking
To swim once again

The water preparing
To make amends with sun
And run so far
From the icy grip of winter

The pebbles are yearning
To sparkle and shine

The birds hungry
To dip their feet in time

The deer so thirsty
For their own reflection

And I am longing
To bloom again with spring

ONE – By ElizaBeth Coira

Unique and special
Yet One
Aren’t we

My sister
My brother
My friend

Must we fight
Constantly compete
Subjugate to win
For what in the end

I’d like to dance
Down by the lake
For there at peace
Is the plane I’ve heard of

Devoid of right
Far away from wrong
Existence so different
From the stories been told

Scripts we’ve sold
Along with our souls
But I no longer buy it
This time with my life

Are You Ready to Spread Some Love?

LOVE-By ElizaBeth

As we all know here in the US, Valentine’s Day is coming! And while our focus for this holiday is typically on the celebration of romantic Love; I’m reminded that Love nourishes our lives in so many different, other ways too…and thank goodness for that!

Just think about all the ways we experience Love. Isn’t it great to give and receive unconditional Love from parents, family and friends? There’s also nothing better than a loving snuggle from a sweet dog or cat to set the world a-right…Am I right?! Do you remember when you helped that random person, how great that felt? And what about when you took yourself out for a date, just because…

For me, there’s nothing like a walk in the woods, beside a stream, or into a vast untamed space to remind me that Love is in and all around me. Do you know what I mean? Have you ever given yourself permission to acknowledge that amazing energy flow that animates Life, in all its glorious forms? Have you ever felt that beautiful sense of interconnection streaming through your veins, roots, stems and systems? Have you ever had a chance to stretch out in the grass, suspended in the lovely smell of green all around; while feeling positively energized, embraced and serene alongside a joyous sunny sky?

As you can tell, I Love a good walk around Mother Earth…especially because it is in her presence that I feel a greater Love; a spiritual sense of Love and interconnection that has nothing to do with social institutions, belief systems, or governance structures…All it has to do with is simply being, existing, in the present moment.
