Above him She soars

Hovering ever so quietly

Observing all mortals in sight

Her angel eyes upon him gazing

Feeling mixed emotions from afar

Shall she land, speak, and confess

Or continue to drift along the currents

Indulging his nervousness from knowing

She is near, yet far from his touch

Near enough to this Empath

Constant exercise of control

Neither wishes to lose

Or ultimately win?

Together forever


Vision Entered His Life Today

A deep dark eyed Vision entered his life today,

Suddenly doors thought forever locked, opened,

Emotions made him shiver, trembling as before,

Hypnotized, unlocking his soul for her gaze,

Deep amber eyes like a stalking lioness staring,

Simply paralyzing him as a lone frightened prey,

Drawn into her dark hued eyes ever so deep,

Unable to resist their powerful magnetic pull,

Surrendering all possessions to her, his new Love

Tearing old walls down for her eyes of brown.

The One


I don’t regret loving
No, I’ll never regret
opening my heart
and pouring it out
I have so much love to give
I’ll not keep it to myself
Just because you
turned your nose up at it
It’s okay
That only proves
that you were not worthy
of this fierce, all-encompassing fire
my heart holds
It burnt you up
and you couldn’t handle it
It’s quite all right
There will come a time
There will come a Man
who will not only
be able to control my flame
but who will also
create beautiful things with it
forged by our desire and devotion
I will wait
and my fire will grow
My fire will thrive
and will flourish for that One.

When I Pray

Source of Inspiration


I do not pray
to escape from conflict
but rather to understand
conflict as a tool for growth.

I pray to gain
not knowledge
but insight.

My prayers reach
toward the Divine
and seek, not material gain
but rather that my soul
expands into greater receptivity.

I pray so that I can go
from what is to what
is destined to be.

What Is Sin?

Source of Inspiration

1471080_616825428352543_1868304818_nTo consciously endorse
and knowingly embrace
a deliberate immoral act
is to take that step into
darkness that leads to evil,
disintegration and destruction.

Be diligent, Dear Ones, that you
use free will only to embrace
powers of positive creativity
turning ever away from
the potential of using
free will destructively.

Thankful Today


I am thankful today
to wake to another sunrise
to colorful birds singing cheerily
to glistening dew on green grass
I am thankful today
to be relatively healthy and free
to enjoy whatever I wish to eat
with my creamy, sweet coffee
I am thankful today
that I can say hello to you
that we can dream together
and help each other make it through
I am thankful today
for blessings great and small
I’m thankful for the sun and moon
I’m thankful for it all.

Jane Dougherty Writes


Butterfly flutters over the wall

Tugged by a rogue sea breeze

Across the rippling mud brown river.

Butterfly flutters flickering on bright wings

Across the sun-dappled water.

How long, I wonder, can butterfly wings

Beat a steady course for unknown shores

Before they crumple, weary, upon a wavetip?

Bright wings turn black with distance,

Frail silhouette, still fluttering up and down

Searching for an elusive flower

Finding only the ripe salt smell of the incoming tide.

Open Book

Source of Inspiration


We have all the museums,
libraries, and universities
at our fingertips, yet lack wisdom
information, books without number
yet do not know how
to love unconditionally.
It is not enough to open
our minds for it is with
our hearts that we learn
the meaning of our lives.
