I held back from living
Expecting the nays.
How very foolish,
How utterly silly.
The yays that I needed
And longed for
Were always there
All ready and waiting.
I just had to listen.

I have discovered that I know only that which I experience.

How much of aloneness
have I brought upon myself?
How much was programmed for me
from my beginning?
How much was the way for me to go
preordainedly planned?
Events have been cruel.
It is not that I caused them,
nor that they were planned.
Enough that I survived and am overcoming.

Edna Aedy, April 18, 1995

Northern Lights

Gleaming with unearthly light
Diaphorous sheers
Sensuously caress
The black abyss
of Heaven.

Edna Aedy, 2006


I search for a God I cannot see
A God who keeps eluding me

The evidence is everywhere
I only have to stop and stare

A flower in bloom
A child at play
A smiling face along the way

The clouds apart to let sun through
All there to beckon me and you
When we lose touch with signs like these
And feel alone upon our knees
Wanting wishes satisfied
In the ways that we have cried

We only have to pause a while
And feel within a quiet smile
Trusting, knowing all is well
In better ways than we can tell

Confrontation has to end
Love is all there is my friend

Edna Aedy, 1983


Listen to your own inner voice
It knows your truth
And will serve you well

Edna Aedy, 2002

Never To Be

Phantom children
all around me
yet unborn
never to be

Edna Aedy, Sept. 2003

Life Force

Divinely fueled
the wonder machine of life
beats relentlessly

Edna Aedy, Apr. 14, 2005


Dawn is approaching
there's joy in awakening
beyond darkest night

Edna Aedy, 2005
