Hope & Healing Through Photography and Poetic Expression

Our Path

“Come now
my
love,”

~

you
softly
say;

~

I
close
my eyes;

~

I
slip
away.

~

“Walk
swift,
our path,”

~

your
whisper
pleads;

~

I
find
my
breath

~

concede
my
need.

~

You
mark
the  trails

~

with
pines
of
gold;

~

You
guide
my
steps

~

whilst
truths
unfold;

~

Beneath
our
tree

~

I wait
for
you,

~

unearthing
dreams

~

we
never
knew.

~

    Love your words & photographs. Thank you for easing the pain of current events in America with your post.

    • Thanks so much dear JB ~ I appreciate and am always honored. I continue to pray our country can heal from the tragedy in Boston. Sending Love to you and yours ~ Blessings, RL

      April 21, 2013 at 12:15 AM

      • I am beginning to wonder if healing is even possible. So many issues tear this nation to shreds daily and thy are not being given time to heal before another horrific thing happens.

        April 21, 2013 at 2:52 AM

    • I know JB ~ I will never understand either. It all seems so senseless and breaks my heart… peace and love are so clearly the easier path.

  14. My favorite place to go where I live is a river trail. Some of it is tree covered, some of it open prairie. I love it. When I or run it I feel like I am at home or with a best friend who is always there. I always find some peace. This poem and photo reminds me of my trail. 😉

    April 21, 2013 at 9:20 AM

    • Thank you so much word4jp! Your trail sounds lovely… I can so relate to your sentiment “..feel like I am home or with a best friend…” That is so wonderful, and thrilled this post brought that vision close for you today ~ love and blessings ~ Robyn

      April 21, 2013 at 9:50 PM

  15. Dear Robyn,
    That gorgeous poem of human love flowed right into that amazing picture of earth love. It was an incredibly fabulous and satisfying reveal. Your works of art are a wonderful wonder, and I just love coming here! _ Resa xo

    April 21, 2013 at 11:19 AM

    • Oh Resa ~ your comments always make me smile … yes human love or earth love; life paths, or paths of relationship… so much interrelated! I’m so happy you enjoyed your visit today my dearest friend… and your new gravitar is totally — awesome!! Love to you ~ x Robyn

      April 21, 2013 at 9:53 PM

      • Yay, because I want you to smile! Your smile is absolutely vivacious. Which brings me to this sketch I am in the middle of doing
        http://resamcconaghy.com/rl/
        The page will go away once you weigh in… It’s not finished yet.

        I’m think I’m doing it for a thank you to many Bloggers Post. In the ruffle extending out of the gown I think I’m going to write IN AMORE VERITAS “there is truth in love.”
        I was using you as a model.. your smile , eyes sparkle, hair.
        I would like to credit you as my sketch muse/model.
        Let me know if that is okay with you, and thanks for the compliment on my Gravitar! ( a fortunate accident)
        Love Resa

        April 23, 2013 at 6:28 PM

    • WOW – Resa ~ you are just amazing! Such a wonderful compliment and I really think your art is “spot-on” ~ Pretty amazing that we never met in person and you could do this! Certainly would be honored to be credited as your muse/model!! Thank you – Thank you !! Yes – there is truth in LOVE ~ x Huge Hug!! x Robyn

      April 21, 2013 at 9:59 PM

  18. An excellent blending of natures, Robyn. One’s own sensual nature and your beautiful photograph of mother nature. The pictorial road guides while your words are gently seductive and fulfilling. Perfectly wonderful, thank you dear friend, so much love to you, Penny xo

    April 21, 2013 at 12:59 PM

    • Excellent Penny! They are so entwined ~ these “natures” you speak of! There was such a metaphor inherent in this image and my feelings around it… love, life, instinct, choices and paths unexplored. Very thrilled you enjoyed my dearest friend, loved your thoughts on this one! So much love back ~ RL x

      April 21, 2013 at 10:02 PM

  19. This photo takes me home to myself. It is the inspiration to go for a walk in nature today. Thank you and sending you blessings from Jane

    Beautiful poem, Robyn.
    Lovely photo to pair with it – still looks very cold over your side of the world.
    Take care

    April 21, 2013 at 11:45 PM

    • Thanks Victoria! Yes – a bit chilly but has been sunny at least, soon enough we will be in heatwave so I’m just enjoying the ability to be outdoors some after a pretty oppressive winter season. Still on the bike, and seems to agree with me so far. Yay ~ now I have a basket on there so can have my camera with me as I ride. Maybe some ops for photos on my rest-stops. Love to you ~ R

      April 22, 2013 at 11:20 AM

  25. What beautiful aligning of words and image! But do emotions like love allow intentions to follow dedicated paths? I remain unsure…

    Shakti

    April 22, 2013 at 3:58 AM

    • Thank you so much Shakti. I appreciate both your lovely compliment and your query. Yours is a good question ~ I have to say that, being aware, and in touch with emotion (no matter where on the spectrum it may be) seems to be the key to tapping into our own “inner-guidance system”. Will listening to our hearts always lead us to the perfect path? I can’t be sure, but it seems the best ‘navigation’ mechanism our souls can call on when making these tough choices. It is only when we try to silence our emotional guidance that I believe we get very very lost… Just my humble opinion (and philosophical rant) for today 🙂 ~ Thank you for prompting me to reflect my friend ~ Love and Light – RL

      April 22, 2013 at 11:38 AM

  26. What a beautiful poem! Touching words!

  33. Lovely lovely post Robyn. Thank you for sharing continuously with all of us. I’m honored and happy that we’ve connected through our respective blogs. Where are your photos from by the way? I can’t quite nail down where that scenery is and I try to guess but I’m not sure. Sending you love and positive thoughts -AB

    April 23, 2013 at 9:21 PM

    • Thank you Arash– I too am so happy to have crossed paths with you here 🙂 Most of my photos are shot in a beach community on Eastern Long Island in New York…. not sure if you are familiar with ‘The Hamptons’ ~ it is super peaceful in off-season and then becomes a bit of “Hollywood” in the summer. I prefer the peace actually – it’s quite beautiful here…maybe one day you will visit! Love and Blessings… RL

      April 24, 2013 at 10:44 AM

  34. Robyn – Your words together with your photography a symphony makes.
