Do You See What I See? poem spoke to me of the Divine Spark within each of us.



by Shiloh Sophia McCloud


Inside of you

is radiant luminous code.

Ciphers ripe for deciphering.

This seeing is what I came here for.

Some might call me an artist,

and a poet if they favor me.

I am merely a witness

to your potential beauty.


Inside of you

stardust is begging the seams

to cross the veil of form.

Reach through

and take hold of the tail

of particle and wave

and pull it through to this place

where we hearts can witness you.


Inside of you

there is something sacred.

That which I call “content”

which belongs only to you, as you.

Sometimes you don’t see it,

I see it, we are all witness to it.

We have need for your gifts,

place them here on the altar.


Inside of you

there is a great longing to be seen

but only you can fill this longing.

We already see your radiance,

yet your longing persists.

Now you know you must see yourself

to be fully seen in the way you seek.

You are your own witness.


Inside of you

a great call is calling

a great wheel is turning, towards you.

That which is yours to do is at the threshold,

beckoning for you to witness with your yes.

There are many ways to say yes.

Here take this pen, this brush,

and give yourself

as a love offering to your own life.

Be A Queen

BeAQueenWhen I first read these words, I was bowled over by their power to remind me—us all—of who we really are.


Be A Queen: Own Your Power And Glory


Be a queen. Dare to be different. Be a pioneer. Be a leader. Be the kind of woman who in the face of adversity will continue to embrace life and walk fearlessly toward the challenge.

Take it on! Be a truth seeker, and rule your domain, whatever it is – your home, your office, your family – with a loving heart.

Be a queen. Be tender. Continue to give birth to new ideas and rejoice in your womanhood.

We are daughters of God – here to teach the world how to love.

It doesn’t matter what you’ve been through, where you come from, who your parents are, or your social or economic status.

None of that matters. What matters is how you choose to love, how you choose to express that love through your work, through your family, through what you have to give to the world.

Be a queen. Own your power and your glory.

Dancing Lessons

These days, because I’m in an entirely new place, I get lost everywhere I go. It took me three tries to get to the Goodwill one day! Long ago I gave up having to know where I’m going in a new place. Getting lost is actually how I’m able to put streets together. Perhaps that’s why I liked this quote from American author Kurt Vonnegut:

Unusual travel suggestions are dancing lessons from God.

I consider getting lost as “unusual travel suggestions.” It’s a chance to dance with the unknown, learn a new street or shop, find something delightful, or a million other opportunities that I wouldn’t have had if I weren’t willing to be lost.

What this means is making right what we would ordinarily make wrong.

What if getting lost is the dancing lesson from God that I need? Learning to dance with God or anyone else takes practice. Mostly, it’s a practice of letting go and showing up for the steps at play right now.

Who knows what I might find?
