~Circle of Loving Muses~





Shadows of fear fill my thoughts
and darkness looms heavy in my heart

hollow edged and gaunt, a cold dark silhouette
walks my dreams each night
and raw terror lives at my center

each morning, I awake
grateful for the miracle of another day
but pondering how many more, I may see

the monster within me
grows stronger each day
yet my soul flies free
reaching out desperately for comfort
finding it here...
within these blue walls

I take refuge
in the warmth of this compassionate family of friends

here... amongst this circle of loving muses
I feel the reflections of caring
I hear the prayers which lift my soul

words do not exist...
to express my gratitude
for engulfing me
in your warm arms of tenderness
and catching me in your safety net

and most of all...
for giving me the courage to fight
to drive this monster away

from the depths of my heart, I thank you all
~

And you,  dearest lady....need not ever
have to express your thanks...because you
have said thank you a thousand times with
each beautiful word you have given each of
us...  May we have your strength...and may
we give your our own as well....

Hugs to a ChipperMunch....

Hello Lyra

Your words moved me to tears but I felt so much strength and compassion.  Thank you for your love and friendship.

Take care.....Sue

Lyra, it was so wonderful 'chattering' with you today. Just hearing your voice was inspiration. I have a call into my daughter plus sent her an email, so hopefully I will hear from her in a day or two. And hopefully she can offer some advice.

There is no need to say thank you. We are all here for you and we will continue to pray. There is might and force when large numbers of people gather in prayer and storm the Heavens.

Love you, Marti

Lyra,
I have not known your terror. But I have known pain and there is, I'm guessing, a similarity. Dear friend know that words don't have to be adequate to express your gratitude. And if it helps they are not adequate to express our concern for you either.

But somehow, here, through words we convey even more than what we say. The synergy of this circle of friends. And now in your time of need...we place you in the middle of that circle. Bless you. And may you draw the necessary strength and courage from this circle and may you find peace in doing so.

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

There is a continuing series of moments where i am astounded at your depth and wide array of incredible emotion your poetry evokes.  
From the heart
thru loving eyes
hope is seen and felt
by all who stand in your shadow, Lyra.

to find you here
with love in hand
even though
you don't understand
we hold your heart
and lift in prayer
our prayer -
that you will always be here.

Lyra, I didn't read all the responses to your wonderful poem, but I must, and can so easily do so, echo Magnus' reply.

Whether on the shoal or on the shore,
I'll seek the lighthouse evermore.

The circle only widens.
All we can do is "be here" and
"be there"...

but just know, we are, ever widening,
ever enfolding....
