Living in the Blue

Maine and More 305

Living in the blue means we allow ourselves to discover

the depths, the heights, the amazing and endless boundaries

of love, holding onto the water, grasping the sky

they both declare that blue is the color of victory.

Why else would the fish and the birds live there?

Teaming with life, with only a thin veil

between us and eternity, the stars

living in the blue means being filled

with hope.

That is where I want to be.

The Defeat of Grey

Maine and More 193

It is the grey that makes us depressed

a lack of color, sun not alive yet to burn it off,

causing us to be put on hold, neither here nor there.

But there is also a grey deeper down,

that creeps into our soul, taking no prisoners

so we need to pull it out with a hook

using maybe a flower, a hug, or a smile of love.

The grey will always be defeated, the sun is there

and getting stronger, all the time.

Don’t hold back the sun,

let the grey turn to blue.

Mission Possible

If you’ve ever seen the movies called Mission Impossible, (or the old TV show), the good guys always win. So in a way they could be called Mission Possible. Every mission the agents get involved with, seems absolutely impossible in the beginning, and yet somehow the challenges are overcome and there is victory. That’s why I gave the post this name.

Also wanted to share some music because it is Sunday, and I’m in a relaxed mood. Here we have Lindsey with the Piano Guys, or at least two of them. There is also some humor here.

Have a great week everyone! Keep dancing, keep playing the music, and shining your light. Victory is right around the corner.

Peace!

What Women Need to Remember

Oceans 956

Be a good listener. Listening does not always mean solving or fixing the problem. If you disagree, keep listening anyway, especially if he feels strongly about the situation.

He will welcome hugs and gentle kisses anytime. 

Surprise gifts, just because you love them, will go a long way!

Spending time together doing the everyday things, will help reduce stress in everyone. (I’m adding here except for maybe laundry!)

Actions do speak louder than words. Remember to show him your love.

      

Note: This was written by my wife. Thank you My Love!

In the Country

Oceans 976

When you and I are in the country we can take back our time

our sanity, by ignoring the negative and basking in the sun,

the park, the bench by the lake whispering, waiting for the center

of our souls to be pieced back together again, silent warfare

in the wholeness, the calm.

Do you remember picking apples when the children were little?

filling our buckets, sometimes fresh peaches or berries,

always smiling at the Creator with a sense of wonder, the children

running and playing, pumpkins in the fall.

The sky was not on fire back then, and the world seldom wept,

war was far away, we were filled

with freedom, expecting only the good.

And now – I cannot look without weeping,

take me back to the country,

where we can take back our time, our sanity.

At least we can whisper, on the park bench, by the lake.

In Between

Maine and More 132

Autumn sun shining in a gentle way

let’s me know that there is a season

of twilight,

the in between of heat and cold, a place of quiet

our souls stretching, taking a moment seeing,

comprehending the waves

relaxing our minds,

understanding the rhythm, and the moon descending,

a time to gather in, and to rest, never ceasing

to be hopeful, comforting

yet very much in between.

Hawks Singing

Oceans 2031

Hawks don’t sing in the valley, they stay up high

then letting loose, they sing of wings. Some people sing

down low, saying it gives them strength, marching,

but many of us can’t find the stream of faith

we climb instead, scraping, clawing our way up

bleeding and bruised, wondering why

holding on to the mountain, looking for our spirit

and where it should live. Hopefully we continue,

until we are hawks singing, way up high, resting

in the knowledge of who we are, and that we do have,

wings.
