These are excerpts from six of Cheryl’s favorite poems in

Kissing Frogs, Goddess Emerging:

 

Her words are magic to his quenchless mind

And stir passion down within his hardened skin.

Her smile electrifies and singes his heart

And he wonders at the possibilities of a new start.

On breath held tentatively,

Learn to believe in the worth of self-trust

And a love which still willingly engages deeply and fully,

forever open to the rich possibilities of gorgeous arrows

drilling to the bedrock of love.

Hold me gently in your arms

Watch over me like the stars in the night sky

Warm me with your breath

Licking the tears from my face.

Safe Harbor is the beginning of sacred relationship where equal partners transform their lives, weaving dreams into the fabric of their lives.

Safe Harbor comes from an open, willing heart, lovingly offered.

Safe Harbor embraces, allowing pain and hurt to lift not as fix but as attention to her heart, her feelings, her desires.

Show up with your peacock feathers displayed

The finery of your heart and soul clothed in

The riches of your spirit’s value

Fine cloth and rich oil adorning the beauty of you

Displayed for me

I do not want one note.

I want a symphony, a chorale, a subtle melody playing, in me, through me,

With your mouth, your tongue, your fingers wet and glistening from the juice of my song – the song you raised up within me for you.
