Hey Inspiring Souls..

Welcome to “Inspired Words” category.. where I will start sharing on a semi regular basis words, phrases, quotes, poems and bits of books that inspire me!

The poem below is one of my favorites.. and full of reminders that I need to connect with again and again.

What messages might you life be giving you in your health, cravings, longings, inspiration, joy, sorrows?

 

Love After Love

The time will come
when, with elation
you will greet yourself arriving
at your own door, in your own mirror
and each will smile at the other’s welcome,

and say, sit here. Eat.
You will love again the stranger who was your self.
Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart
to itself, to the stranger who has loved you

all your life, whom you ignored
for another, who knows you by heart.
Take down the love letters from the bookshelf,

the photographs, the desperate notes,
peel your own image from the mirror.
Sit. Feast on your life.

-Derek Walcott
