Just Write


Waiting for the Write moment seldom happens. It retards my goal.

So just write I say!

I start… then slowly the Write moment rears its beautiful head.

My journey has begun.

And I smile ….

Future Nightmares Degenerate


Nightmares of the past creep into the face of the future. Stares so deep triggers haunting thoughts of shame, disgust, turmoil, and fear.

Tis only with strength that the force awakens the face from sleep. A sleep that sparkles promises of a future composed of beauty’s quiescence. A face filled with smiles, calm, and joy. A face of Peace.

Smile my face smile. Nightmare’s gone. Softly and tenderly the future calls.

Storm…Yet Still I Write

A quiet room, an empty page

 

Then suddenly a storm. Nature bursts forth it’s mighty power!

Yet still I write

What’s deep inside beckons to come forth softly, quietly with a shout!

Freed…

Water’s Rain

Raindrops. Soft, quiet, serene

Unlike the noises of thunderous terrains

Raindrops breathe life, love, play; in a stillness that comforts

All wrapped in covers so deep.

Waters pour; let it rain.

 

Coward’s Radiate


Having you around makes me happy, makes me smile.

Having you here …but there,

Makes my smile …like clouds,

Afraid to come out.

Response

 Don’t be, I feel weird all the time.

When I come I want you to shine like the sun you are.

You pour positivity and smiles into me.

If you’re afraid to radiate we’ll both suffer.

Your Story. Your Truth…

 

To thine own self be true

 

Appearance is a concept that leads to perception. We envision, perceive, admire what we see in outward appearances, and cast them all as true.

Looking, believing that all things are true. That all things are for real. That things are always what they appear to be.

Love, hate, success, failure, laughs, cries, happiness, sadness, beauty, life, stillness, peace, turmoil.

Things aren’t always what they appear to be. Look deep inside yourself. Uncover the truth. All that glitters is not gold…But to thine own-self  be true.

To Lead. To Wade. Darkness 


To lead, to Wade…Darkness. Life’s unexpected changes often knock us off our feet. Business fail. Sudden job loss, relationship spiral, sickness, accidents, natural disasters, tragic losses. These changes knock us off our feet causing darkness in our souls, our lives, our all. We look around and all we see is gloom and doom.

Questions abound often going unanswered. Why? Why didn’t we listen? Why weren’t we forewarned? …Then how. How could this happen? How could we have not seen, or heard? How can they not care?

Enter the example of the ‘sudden’ departure of Basketball’s Icon Dwayne Wade from the Miami Heat . The why’s, the how’s, and the blames reign. Answers  provide little comfort as he walks behind the heels of those gone before.

That’s how it is with change. It throws us off balance and causes alarm, cries, and sighs. We want things back the way they were!

But often there are warning signs.

So today activate your senses. Keep your eyes wide open…see. Keep your ears attuned. Look around. Listen. Often the signs are very evident if only we are in tune.

Stay healthy. Stay alert. Stay focused. As darkness draws nigh, we always see the sun setting.

Peace.
