The Light Inside: poems

by Cassandra Arnold

Nature. Spirit. Healing. Joy.

In this new collection, Instagram poet Cassandra Arnold takes you on a whirlwind tour across Canada, England and Australia, through winter, summer, autumn and spring. She dives wholeheartedly into the challenges of life in our consumerist world, finding your home in nature, and reclaiming your authentic self.

Each bite-sized poem is an invitation to wonder and personal power.


Years of innocence under water,
believing I knew my life.
Then a terrible urge to climb,
to enter that hard cold light,
and I was sure I was dying—
split asunder, stretched out.
I didn’t understand wings
until I took my first flight.
