Shelter Within The gates were openedFor anyone to enterUpon their good deeds Boats rest in their slipsWaiting for the fog to liftOpen water bound Feelings of despairPuzzling occurrencesBut the truth prevails Always protectedIn the midst of disturbanceInside is shelter Shelter Within Poem and photograph by April Joy Manger from her upcoming book: The Garden Path to My Heart:Finding Inner Light through Poetry   (Her book will be published later this month on Amazon.)

The Light Within I don’t want to think right nowI just want to be like a treeWith my roots deep in the groundMy branches reaching toward the light I want to feel the afternoon breezeAnd a gentle spring rain on my fresh new leavesI want the birds and bees to take advantage of meMake their nests and hives securely within me And when you’re tired, my friend, come sit in my shadeRest your back against my strong trunk and feel my energy   The Light Within A poem from April’s upcoming book: The Garden Path to My Heart:Finding Inner Light […]

Poemagery Image inspired poems by April Manger Come Along Come along with me to the land of dreamsWhere fairies fly and rainbows beamLet’s take a chance to fall in love Come along with me into the deep blue skyWhere eagles soar higher than giant mountainsLet’s fly to meet angels and shooting stars Come along with me to the bottom of the seaWhere mermaids live among sunken shipsLet’s dive to find gold filled treasure chests Come along with me into the sunsetWhere we’ll walk into the golden lightAnd live for eternity “Come Along” was inspired by music written and recorded by a very dear […]
