Who Stole the Heart of Our Homeland ~ By ElizaBeth Coira

It’s not everyday I get to shout poetry into a megaphone! Thanks to the organizers of the Spokane #FEMFEST19 for the chance to do so with this piece on Saturday night!

ElizaBeth Coira - The Home Grown Sojourner

(Click image to enlarge. Click play to hear a recorded reading.)

The time has come for Americans of good conscience to reclaim our nation from the plights of greed, apathy, and egregious evil that have assumed control of our nation. We can no longer continue to look the other way. We can no longer cower in the shelters of relative comfort, and mind-numbing entertainment. The time has come to rise. Rise to the call within your Heart. She will show you the way.

ONE – By ElizaBeth Coira

ElizaBeth Coira - The Home Grown Sojourner

One_ElizaBeth Coira_HomeGrownSojourner

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

LIGHT OF LOVE – By ElizaBeth Coira

May the light of Love fill us this holiday season 🙂

ElizaBeth Coira - The Home Grown Sojourner

Light of Love_ElizaBeth Coira_HomeGrownSojournerThe light of love
To weather storms
Cleanse my mind
Hold my soul

It lives within
My gentle heart
I open up
To let me grow

Just like the tree
Full of knots
Battle haggard
Wounds and scars

I too will keep
Growing, stretching
Up to the light
Of mother sun

Inside I’ll keep
My fire burning
Feeding, learning
Hoping, healing

Rekindling
Rejuvenating
Now rise, renew
My nascent soul

A WEEKEND HIKE IN GERMANY – By ElizaBeth Coira

A Weekend Hike In Germany_ElizaBeth Coira_HomeGrownSojourner.com

Everything is coming
And I am starting today

I go hike through forests, spanning mountains
Stretch out in a blanket of snow
Absorb the sun between gray clouds
Stumble, twist, turn through rocky trails

Stare awe-struck, dumb-founded at the mouth of a cave
Wondering what awaits us, on the inside
It’s shallow, carved out of a weathered white stone
House and host to wanderers, past and now

I wander down the path of mammoth hunters
Only to find the dominion of a king
Medieval ruins, knight’s follies
Haunted troughs, misty memories

The trees stand silent, guardians
Of earth and all our secrets
So many take their troubles to the forest
To re-emerge full of peace and serenity

I guess that’s what we’re doing here
Seeking peace, healing, piece of mind
A mind beyond time, beholden to none
We have much to learn in the trees
