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.

Islands in the Sun…

The vibes; the rythms; the mystic music enthuse our frame of mind and instigate thoughts that Quiets our souls in distant love. Island… creates the feeling of contentment that all is well. No matter how busy life gets, an island waits in the distance to soothe our longings.

Why not plan a getaway to any of the caribbean islands – Jamaica, Trinidad, Bahamas, Cayman, and more. Listen…can you not hear it? They are a Calling with promises of lazy days basking in the sun, sea and sand.

One Love…

Of Clouds And Vision

Business, career, family, life and the facets that engulf our daily experiences. Clouds like scales cover our eyes that we fail to see the Vision of a future so dear. A future that’s past reminiscing what has been…, blocks the possibilities of what can be.
Open wide our eyes. See the possibilities. Reach higher. Believe. We will Achieve.

Water …

Water…a necessity for life. For living. We can’t do without it.
Surprisingly, I came across a site that captures only raindrops. It caught my attention as I love the different forms water comes in. It may be the river, the sea, the tap, waterfall, canal, stream; it may even appear through bursts of lightening and thunder!

Water though essential to living can also be extremely dangerous. It gives life and it can take it. Should we be afraid? No, not at all. As with many things in life it’s our approach that counts. Either we care for it, plan for it, or neglect it as in hurricane warnings and suffer the consequences.

Today, may we bask in the comfort and delights of magical streams. Let’s dream. Let’s quiet our hearts with distant love.

Drink deeply.
