An Introvert


Hear me!
I’m an introvert

I’m verted toward
Internal reflection
And fueled by
The quiet
Awe of
Life’s simplicity
As I
Write and
Build and am
Nourished on
The inward
Calm and
Stillness of
Being
Touching
The gentle
Heart of
Self
I thrive
On and
On in
This state

It has
Been too
Long since
I sat and
Called upon
These words that
Soothe
My tempestuous
Soul with
Medicated-like
Precision in
Silence
My mind
Relaxes as
I breathe in
The deeper
Body of
Being and
Connect with
Life’s ever
Flowing
Presence
Around me

Being
Here
In this moment

Being here
I am
Reminded of
Home
And of
What
Home means…

Home is
A state of
Being

Being at
Home
Just is

Just is
With no
Cause to
Speak to
Move
Engage with
Another

But to be
Just be
Just be is
One of
The hardest
Challenges for
Most people

To be without
Speaking
To be without
Doing and
Just be
Just be
Connected in
The being while
Doing
Nothing else is
The talent of
An introvert

As an introvert
The act of
Being
Comes natural
Being home in
The silence
Isn’t a challenge
It is
The breath that
Keeps me
Alive but
Connecting with
This being
Routinely
Rhythmically in
A world that
Devalues
Being
In favor of
Doing is
My greatest
Challenge

This natural
Inclination
Toward
Stillness is
My lightening
Rod fueling
My essence with
Beautiful
Inspiration and
Creative
Energy
Forming into
My angelic
Muse of
Poetic words
Art and
Glowing
Life

Down time is
My up
Time

To metaphorically
Bring it
Together
To use an
Analogy
It’s like
I am
At home
With my
Ice cold
Tea on
A hot
Summer
Day in
My backyard with
My dog by
My side
This is
What the
Silence
Quiet
Stillness of
Being is
For me

It is
Home

I am
Renewed like
The budding
Tree of
Spring and
I can’t
Bloom
Faster than in
These moments

Here
I sit
Enjoying
The moment
Communing with
The spirit of
Life
Giving me
What I
Need
Being
Filled with
So much
Making me
Inner rich
Blessed with
The simplicity of
Being
Just being
Alive

Here
I sit
Open to
The day
Ahead

Refreshed
Renewed

Open to
Being
Doing
Engaging in
Life’s
Magical
Moments
Because I
Honored being
Just being
Who I am

I am
Christa

I am
An introvert

And I am
In love with
Being

Because being is
Who I am.
