Excerpts of Poetry from Chasia's Enchantment

By Hilda Chasia Smith


Being in our being, we can recognize ourselves
in each other’s reflection.
Needing to love unconditionally
and needing to be loved unconditionally.
As beings of brilliance in the phenomenal field
Of un-mined greatness, humility,
in the splendour of our world here we are.
Being. This is a gift imbued by energy
Which creates universes, the divine energy
that fashions every aspect of life.

We exist in this miraculous world, together.
We have come into life to develop,
to share new stories and to
honour our ancestors.

Remember to learn from history.
Imagine new vistas out of the innocence,
compassion, intelligence, intuition, flexibility,
joy, beauty, healing, and transformation.
Yes, honouring the past and
looking into each moment
As we move into the future.

This liberation of transforming transcends.
We attend to our own being.
Being in our being and in so doing helping
all other beings.
