Who am I?

Who am I?

Who am I? A Poem by Darlene Wiggers

Who am I?

Do you really know me?

Do you dare to come near?

You may think I am aloof or arrogant.

But I may be easily misread.

The layers of my onion may fool you.

Will you dismiss me too quickly?

But I may be good for you,

As I am an acquired healthy taste.

Who am I?

Do you really know me?

Do you dare to come near?

I am the roaring sound of a seashell,

Holding memories of long ago.

Do you have the time to hear them?

Will I open up to you?

I may touch you with my stories.

Am I worth the time to you?

Who am I?

Do you really know me?

Do you dare to come near?

I am the fragrant scent of a rose,

Nursed by the summer sun and the rain.

My heart is true and authentic,

But I see that not all hearts are.

So, I have grown thorns to protect me.

Who are you? Will I trust you? Will I let you come in?

Who am I?

Do you really know me?

Do you dare to come near?

I am a hidden gem in my oyster shell,

Sometimes overlooked.

My value is appreciating,

Just like the weight of gold.

Will you take the time to culture me?

I just may climatize to you.

Who am I?

Do you really know me?

Do you dare to come near?

It takes much more time to know me.

You may not “see” me even at second sight.

When I am scared,

I am protected by my turtle shell.

But when I am strong,

I pop like a beautiful firecracker.

Will you miss me in the blink of an eye?

I have so much to offer.

Do you have the patience for me?

It’s your loss, if you walk away,

I know I am worth more than just a few tries.

How Do You Get from A to Z – A Poem by Darlene Wiggers

Survival of the fittest

Or Strength in numbers

Faith or logic

Passion

Pushed or pulled

In Darkness or Light

Resistance or free-flowing

Cohesion

Excuses, procrastination, at the last minutem is for makeithappen

Guidance, encouragement, a direction

With a plan, or play it by ear

On a wing and a prayer

Proactively, reactively

Risks, regrets

With a bang or a whimper

In leaps and bounds, at a snail’s pacemisfor

Fight or flight

Do you wait for things to happen to you?

Or do you purposefully make them happen?

No, you can’t = Yes, I will

Money and power

Love and supportmake it happen

Faith and gratitude

Music, nature

Family and friends

Hustle and bustle

Stress, Anxiety

Lies or Integrity

Emotions that drive you

-Fear, anger, joy, love

Who you know, what you know

Strange coincidences

By chance, an accident

A slippery slope

An act of God

Is it fate or free will?

Perspectives, Perceptions, and Expectations – A Poem by Darlene Wiggers

There are three sides to every story:

Your side,

Their side,

And somewhere in the middle is the truth.

So don’t judge.

You don’t have all the facts.

You don’t know where people have been,

Or where they’re at now.

And on top of that,

Each person’s nature is different:

They may like to talk, they may like to keep to themselves.

They may be more sensitive, or less sensitive than you.

They may be stronger, or weaker than you…

You can apply a spectrum to anything,

And where you lay on it will be different from someone else.

So don’t judge.

Some people judge far too easily and are not very forgiving.

Before you complain about someone else’s faults, take a good look at your own.

Each person has many layers.

And even if someone wears their heart on their sleeve,

You still don’t see it all.

At that moment, they may be strong enough,

And they may be selective in what they choose to reveal.

Someone could be really hurting, and you may not have a clue.

Set high expectations and rise – good words to live by

And usually works.

But sometimes not.

So be prepared to make adjustments.

You may need to lower expectations.

Don’t be so hard on yourself, or others.

You may expect yourself or others to act in a certain way,

Be in a certain place,

Do the appropriate thing –

But maybe that’s not possible at this time.

You may be ready, but at that time others may not be.

Maybe they can’t put on a strong face at that moment.

Maybe they can’t be there for you because they need to be there for themselves.

So give yourself or them a pass, and let it go.

Even if you don’t understand, even if it doesn’t make sense –

Because you don’t really know the whole truth.

THE IMPOSSIBLE – A POEM BY DARLENE WIGGERS

 

Anything is possible

You just have to believe

When everything lines up

It’s easy to achieve

 

Removing limitations

Adjusting expectations

Past, present, future

Is just an illusion of time

 

Forgiving and forgetting

Vulnerability with an open mind

Let loose and see where it takes you

Just give it a try

 

Positivity flows in the right direction

The plan includes unexpected purposes

Turning balanced changes into small miracles

The impossible CAN be in the future!

The Sequel – A Poem by Darlene Wiggers

Words unspoken

Thoughts that abound

Emotions are reeling

The healing that hurts

 

Once upon a time

Happily ever after

The sequel is ending

A new story begins

 

Pain and suffering

Humour that heals

The heart is aching

Searching for hope

 

Life is for living,

Laughing, loving, and forgiving

Not judging and regretting

But understanding and appreciating

I have always liked poetry, both the reading of it and the writing of it. Here is one written by my younger self, at age 18.

 

The Pond of Everlasting Hope – a poem by Darlene Novak

In the back of the yard

Exists a pond, a man-made pond.IMG_0473

And in the summer

The pond was alive;

Flowers in bloomIMG_0581

Birds in tune

And the fish – yes – the goldfish

– So many together

So bound, forever

 

And then autumn fell

And the flowers were gone.

The birds, they too, flew away.

IMG_0252

Honk! Honk!

The goldfish removed

To an indoor pond

To safety, to warmth

But a temporary home

All of them secure

To carry on the tradition.

 

All of them? – No, not all,

All, except two

Two which could not have been caught.

Two which would not be caught.

Although it was tried again and again

The two remained in the pond.

All said, they would dieIMG_0860

All said, they would not – make it.

But the two remained in the pond.

 

Some time has passed since that autumn day

And many cold days have come

Some rain has fallen

And snow has stormed

Hiding the pond from all’s view

IMG_1064

So many footprints!

All are fine, though rain still falls

The two are still in the pond

-Presumably dead, though no one will know

Until the breaking of ice.

 

The time has come

For the sun to shine.

The ice is beginning to melt

Slowly, though,

The process takes time

But through warmth, it will become clear.

The birds have returned; the flowers in bloom

Through faith, the two have survived

And one day soon, the others will join them.

God has brought them new life.

Right – A poem by Darlene Wiggers

 

Think, feel

Feel, think

Right, left

Left, right

 

Right is not wrong

But left is not right

Two become one

That is what’s right

 

Sense makes dollars

Emotions might

Two become one

That is what’s right

 

Save, spend

Keep, give

What makes sense?

What feels right?

 

Work to live

Live to work

Live it up

Live for life

 

One life to live

Or is there more?

Make it right

Make it right

 

What do you think?

What do you feel?

What will you do?

What will be right?

 

Life is hard

Life is light

Light is love

Love is light

 

 

Head, heart

Truth, dare

What will you do?

What will be right?

 

Sad, happy

Disease, health

Follow your heart

Your heart is what’s right

 

That is what’s right!

Right is what’s right!

Subtle Sensations

A poem by Darlene Wiggers

 

An assortment of attributes

Somewhat skeptical

A barrier, a boundary

A distinct divide

An uncertain uneasiness

Letting loose

Trying to trust

Peeking, peering

Basic breathing

Mindful meditations

Raising reflections

An activated awakening

Joining the journey

Very vulnerable

A collective calling

A distinct drive

Mysterious music

A signal, a sign

Suspecting, sensing

A sixth sense

Curious coincidences

A picture of perceptions

Uncommon, unfamiliar

Cautious clarity

Loosening the left-side

Initial introductions

A range of realms

Variegated violet

Prismatic pink

Invitational indigo

A calm cool current

A hint of heat

A sense of smoothness

Fuzzy, faint

A tiny tingle

A tittling twitch

A fleeting flutter

A tapping thump

Vibrant vibrations

Repetitive ripples

Trembling tremors

A crackling clearing

A taste of titanium

Dehydrated, dry

A touching of tresses

A rearrangement, a realignment

A wag of warmth

Heightened heat

A suggestive scent

A smoldering smoke

An earthy emergence

A primal perfume

A murky mustiness

A clammy crispness

A petite pull

A tad of tugging

A slight surge

Significant sensitivities

Pieces of the puzzle

Telepathic tendencies

A coming of clarity

Developing depth

Intriguing ideas

Realizing the realness

The clear “clairs”

Fluent familiarity

Increased intensities

Dreams that direct

Descriptive déjà vu

Visions that visit

Testing the truths

Knowing now

Rented relationships

Lease of life

Somber shifting shadows

Subtle soft silhouettes

Evolved energy

Surrendering the self

Developing discernment

Understanding unknowns

Strengthening symbols

Handling habits

Greatest of good

Systems of space

Transcending time

Elapsed endurances

Passages to the past

Deep, dense

Troublesome tightness

Eliciting interventions

Forgiving faults

Living and letting live

Receiving remediation

Mending memories

A withdrawing wall

A white wave

A luminous light

Connected courses

Electrical, exciting

Brilliant bridges

Gateway gazing

Angelic apparitions

Mesmerizing, mystical

The language of light

A relaxing rhythm

A surprising spark

Remarkable revelations

A fresh feeling

Absolute awareness

Peaceful playfulness

A soulful spirit

Welcomed whispers

An effervescent embrace

A kind caress

A velvet vitality

A wealth of wellness

An energized experience

A pleasing phenomenon

A marvelous miracle

A leading life-force

Priceless, powerful

Insightful, intuitive

Maintaining, mastering
