Gentleness and Warmth

20160602_161232

The spring speaks softly of gentleness and warmth

allowing our hearts

to feel safe again,

as we open ourselves

to her beauty,

in awe

we receive the confidence

to move forward.

Ocean Meditations

100_1471

Rocks hold their ground with the rushing of sparkling waves

Mesmerized I listen closely,

to the sounds of the ocean

singing, dancing, moving

and I realize

we can see more clearly

in our peace, with the veil removed.

And a prayer escapes my heart,

my mind,

just at the right moment, receding.

The Power of Beauty

20170628_165644

Over each meadow and mountain, our nation awoke today

to a brighter sun,

as some of the chaos

some of the hatred

was pulled away

in our choosing to come together

embracing our healing,

each one of our colors

as if we were flowers holding

the power of beauty

within our hearts.

     

In diversity there is strength.

My Second Biggest Blogging Secret

20180930_123716

Well, if you didn’t see my biggest blogging secret, it wasn’t really a secret, but it was to invest in other bloggers!

Spend time at other sites that interest you. So, now for my second biggest secret! Well it’s not really a secret either!

I try to bring hope and encouragement with much of my work. Let’s face it, we all need encouragement sometimes!

So I use terms such as “wordflow”, “spirit” etc. as a way of reflecting a positive life force,

and maybe even some healing. Poetry infused with nature can also bring healing.

I want my blog to be a positive place making the world a little more beautiful.

Art, and writing, and photography can do that! So now you know my 2 biggest blogging secrets.

I wish you all peace!

P.S. I think I’ve discovered a good writing plan/schedule. And sometimes you will see some adventurous fiction!

Journey Celestial

20171028_150812

When we walk down that path…..our journey celestial

a temple unseen awaits in our spirits

while white clouds drift over,

wisdom rides on light rays through shadows,

flickering in our minds

reminding us of our own humanity,

we take another step, accepting.

Guided by hawk wings,

or at least by their shadows,

flying over our shoulder……

we are encouraged

with the burden lighter,

our steps become quicker

as we embrace each path……

of our journey celestial.
