By the Wayside


By the Wayside


“Your plans—

cancel them,

and come this way.”

That’s what

the tiny voice


in my ear.

And I knew.

I knew it was time

for me

to be prepared

to move on a whim,

at the drop of a dime.


is no longer

a structure made of

bricks or wood or stone.


is what I take with me

wherever I go.

The chimes—

so lovely—

and here they are again,

calling my name,

beckoning me to align

with the wind

that makes them dance.

They sing me a song

of surrender,


ease . . .

as I pack my bags yet again.


fell away.

Uncertainty and Ambiguity

are my traveling companions now,

walking by my side

as I

find my way.

I stumble in the dark,

but I can’t resist the Light.

Light recognizes me as Itself

and invites me to become


with It.

Then I shall




Radiate . . .

and the path will be

lit up

for others

whose plans

fell by the wayside.

From:  Book of Life:  Poems for the Journey


Amy Adams is a poet/writer/facilitator who wishes to serve Humanity and the Cosmos by authentically expressing what it has come to mean to her to be Divinely Human.  Her initial inspiration came from what she calls a “tried and true ‘Dark Night of the Soul’ experience.”  Insights, poems and writings continue to pour through her to this day, and she will write as long as writing is what’s in front of her.  In addition to writing, she enjoys dancing, singing, walking, reading, nature, conversations, playing . . .

Joy has become her guide, and she intends to share It by aligning with Flow, living Alive and creating a space where Joy is called forth from within the depths of every Being whose life she touches.

“Humaira” is a name that was gifted to her at the time the writings began.  Amy has come to know Humaira as a very clear and wise aspect of her Being, one who is not censored, but who lives naturally, simply and from a place of Aliveness.  When Amy aligns with the “Humaira energy,” a co-creative synergy seems to occur, and it is magical beyond even the words.

Amy currently resides in Montour Falls, NY and Altoona, PA, and takes her “Home” with her wherever she goes.
