An Invincible Summer
In the midst of strife, I found there was, within me, an invincible love.
In the midst of tears, I found there was, within me, an invincible smile.
In the midst of chaos, I found there was within me, an invincible calm.
In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me, there lay, an invincible summer. And, that makes me happy.
For it says, that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there’s something stronger…~ Albert Camus
Stepping out from chaos into the light
to know, understand, to find meaning in the abstruse, the absurd
which helps to minimize strife, internal and external
with a patient, conscious, mindful heartactively reflecting, engaging, a soul-sourced voice.
Bring a desire to exceed the mundane, outside of fear, of chaos
to grow exponentially, creatively
an equanimous entwining, a knowing.
Tears wane, with this stronger voice, which is founded in idealism
with right intentions, speaking, writing about alternative ways
with the Great Mother and the Old Wise Man of our collective consciousness,
with the honouring of creative potentials
of individual offerings, of less restricted potential.
Cleansing the heart against the disease of winter, the archetypal Trickster, of absurdity, chaos, dark, profane shadows
even stints in the desert, where the air suffocates and stifles —drying the voice, the heart and the soul — we persevere.🕊
The realization that life is absurd and cannot be an end, but only a beginning.
This is a truth nearly all great minds have taken as their starting point. It is not only this discovery that is interesting, but the consequences and rules of action drawn from it.~ Albert Camus
Toward fertile ground, the light, the order where there was chaos
toward summer awakenings, a playful practical pragmatism
on the black earth, in lush forests,
the expansive ocean of flexible yet durable transformations.
An interplay of resisting, of letting go
with turquoise seas of what could be
and some revolution before what is going to be/
to take a stand, with awareness,
with love, calm, we can stand up
with a stronger pushing back, bravely, for even more.
