One Shot Wednesday :My "Shadorma"

This is my first time participating in One shot Wednesday hosted by Claudia. I am as shy with my poetry as I am with my art...but I thought,why not?I'm giving it a shot! This is a "Shadorma".A shadorma poem is just a six-line stanza that is ruled by syllables. line 1: 3 syllables line 2: 5 syllables line 3: 3 syllables line 4: 3 syllables line 5: 7 syllables line 6: 5 syllables Here we goooo!

 "Please hear me
There’s so much to say
Shut me out
Turn away
Your eyes close my voice rises
now only silence"

This speaks a lot about my feelings tonight... Thank you for stopping by!

Virgin aday:A Prayer to Guadalupe

I've missed 2 days of posting for the "Virgin a Day" meme hosted by the wonderful Rebecca . I have been feeling quite under the weather this week.Last night I started feeling worse and now I  guess have a full blown virus. =( Since I've  still had to  go to work through all this, I've been keeping hydrated & medicated. I didn't want to miss today's post so I'm keeping it simple. A Prayer To Guadalupe: We greet thee and adore thee, Oh Guadalupe Heavenly Rose, Mystical Rose, of Tepeyac Hill. May thy fragrance bless our souls, so sweet is thy savor, Most Beauteous Rose. Thine , too , is the power . Give it to us women , who are thy daughters. Blessed art Though through all eternity.
Taken from my book:
"Magic From Mexico" by Mary Devine ,PH.D. Have a blessed night!

People are so creative!I am feeling inspired!As a matter of fact I have a pencil drawing I made of La Virgencita.Maybe I'll work up the courage to post it! I'm shy about some of my so called art!lol
I am so enjoying this meme and all the awesome posts thanks to Rebecca  and all the participants

A virgin a Day: Our Lady of Guadalupe

I found this meme being hosted by Rebecca over at It's called  "A Virgin A Day", celebrating the 12 days in December that lead up to the feast day of Our lady of Guadalupe." I knew the second I saw this I would participate even if I'm a little late.I have always loved Guadalupe. I am Mexican American & was fortunate enough to visit la Basílica of Guadalupe, in Mexico City, where the miraculous image of la Virgen Morena is kept. I grew up Catholic and I was to taught to revere la virgen. As an adult I have come to embrace Goddess spirituality.I see Our lady of Guadalupe as the great Mother Goddess. When I pray she is the image in my mind.  Rebecca describes this meme: "This is not so much about religion, as it is about sharing a common thread. rejoicing in our sameness with light, beauty, inspiration, thoughtful regard. I suspect humor and charm will make strong appearances too. it is about sharing favorite images, art, photographs, stories…
