We all shine on

Stars glitter above us
hanging like ornaments on velvet skies,
we reach within our minds to join
the universe shining on.
In dreams we float on silent seas,
ripples move us forward to horizons
beyond our reach, but never so far
that we cannot close our eyes
and find ourselves everywhere.
We all shine on.
Sparkling souls conjoined in unity,
those who love and embrace the joy
of each second that ticks by,
bestowing the gifts of bliss.
We hold out our hearts to raise the bar,
higher and higher we seek to be
light of mood and laughter found
all around.
Who doesn’t love the sight
of glittering rain or snow falling down,
when lit from the fire within
our souls spin happily
and a song on the mind plays on,
Guaraldi’s fingers play softly
the tune we hum along
with a child’s smile.

At work yesterday I heard a Charlie Brown Christmas song from Vince Guaraldi. My heart filled with joy and a smile hit my face and I twirled around humming along as a few customers chuckled. Light hearted moments and sparkling things…shining on. Keep calm today my friends and don’t forget to shine on in your own happy way ❤

Beauty in peace

Standing in the shadows
thoughts race by like raindrops
lashing about and puddling
at the feet deeper by the moment,
wringing out as quickly
as sand runs through the glass
not making much ground,
I cease and abstain,
to finally just be.
Soaked to the skin
I watch each thought drop away,
splash as it falls into nothing
no longer existing
it magically disappears
into space
and I wonder for only a moment
where it had gone,
yet not giving it any real worth
for to let it remain a focus
keeps one drowning and mired in it.
I rise instead to the blue,
buoyed in the depths of what has changed,
skies clear from the storm
I lay watching the scenes unfold
knowing there will be brighter moments
without those thoughts that intrude,
the ideas that rankle
and the emotion it stirs.
I embrace the passing of the rain
yet respect the moment it existed,
for to find within the darkness
the strength to not succumb
charges like lightning
the soul set to soar higher,
to believe and grow
through learning that with the water that falls,
something beautiful may grow.

Thoughts this morning on some dreams I had revolving around self-worth, etc….on track for another glorious day and always embracing the things I learn from my soul, even as I sleep, so very aware of the moment and able to let go the bad before waking to rise refreshed and feeling good.


Quiet peace

We are built upon foundations
peace and harmony set piece by piece,
created ventures stacked
we become the image of
the beauty that surrounds.
Who doesn’t love a meadow
or a stone wall reminiscent
of long ago writers whose words filled
the heart of a child who dreams.
In life we find so little remembered,
yet the words borne in the mind grow
like fertile seeds blossoming
into beautiful trees that give
life and home and shade
on summer days,
and a place to sit beneath
resting in hammocks and finding
the quiet peace we crave.
Our solitude keeps hearts beating strong
and a sound of birdsong on the wind
carries us into the sleep of dreaming
and seeing the universe
through closed and calm eyes,
we write our words
so that others may hear
the voice of a thousand years
lives in the soul of all.

For some reason, I keep visualizing a stone wall that holds a forest at bay and separates it from the thousand wildflowers that grow in a meadow, birds flit about and it is spring….Robert Frost comes to mind and words I learned as a child….and perhaps the path that leads through it all is the one less traveled. Just a thought. Peace and love and off to work my friends, have a beautiful day filled with abundance and laughter.
