Intuitive Photo Series #1: Shelter


Welcome to my Intuitive Photo Series Challenge.

When I look at photos, I see, feel, hear, smell, and sometimes taste poems or stories. They’re not always stories that are obvious, but they are very real to me, and I feel them in a very real and physical way.

In this series, I will be receiving everyday photos from friends & family and challenging myself to write whatever comes to me.

This challenge is very intuitive and automatic. I won’t be outlining or planning anything. I will not make corrections or edits to the prose in any way. I will rely solely on my intuition and write what comes from looking at the photo.

Thank you, Susan, for the photo. I hope you enjoy the poem.

Shelter


Strength
Power
Resilience

What lies beneath?
The roots of a living
breathing
soul

What secrets are you keeping?
How many lives have you saved?

Nurturer
Rescuer
Protector to some
Enemy to others

A world below the water’s edge
How deep can you go?
How far do you travel?

A web of lies
Intertwined
Entangled

And the truth
is found
in the stillness

Safe yet
mysterious

Who hides in the shadows
the soil
the water?

You have been given
great strength
power
and resilience

You are shelter
You are a refuge
You are home
