Uncloaking the Elephant

Mirror On the Mountain

Painful truths,
easiest denied.
Impregnable silence,
nowhere to hide.

My Soul screams out
Dear God help me see
That the elephant in my living room
must be set free.

I meditate and pray
I seek my own flaws
To uncloak this creature
and fix it at cause.

The space all around
the shape of denial.
Can no longer fit
The me that can smile.

I grew into Love
and cast out my fear,
and the Universe nudged me,
"It's time to leave here".

In fear of my wings
Yet too enlivened to crawl,
I crave this new peace
No desire to brawl.

I now have convictions
to appreciate this shove,
that has forever made permanent
My desire to be Love.

This massive gray presence
no longer do I feed,
Except words of gratitude
for the gift of it's seed.

Passionate for nature, life, writing and sharing, this site is mutually dedicated to my three favorite vehicles through life - Photography, Writing and Speaking. As professional photographer I was (and still am) in my favored "Observer" mode. As writer, these observations exposed a deeper understanding into ethics, authenticity and leadership. As speaker, I get to be selfish. In giving we gain - big! By helping you to discover your own authenticity, passion and where you too are a leader, I get a huge pang of fulfillment. Yes, I am a giver - the most selfish sort of person that ever was. (that is, once you realize how great the results of giving truly are)
