Words in time

Juggling the grains,
we are feeling the softness slipping through
as it chafes the senses
blurring them into
the castles of life.
Movement measured
between the filter falling,
back and forth we tip it round
chasing tails to find a moment
to settle back down.
In these worlds of glass
we fear the breakage of carelessness,
the whole that holds together
must remain intact
for no more and no less
may be added into the mix,
as it trickles down for us all
we grab our spoons
and trying to carry each bit forward,
find we lose more by holding tighter
yet when we release and let go
the storm passes and piles more at our feet,
yet we will climb
step by step as we only know how
to reach the summit
and perhaps if blessed,
touch the glow of a midnight moon.

  1. I always amaze myself at times at the things I know within and somehow get side tracked like a dog and squirrel routine, sometimes it just takes a catalyst to propel my thoughts back to where they need to be ❤ ❤ feeling and thinking good again ❤

  2. “…we lose more by holding tighter…” The heart of the matter for me. Hoping this finds you letting go of excess (as in your poem for today), and reaping the benefits. Definitely a challenge for me, as well. 🙂

  3. I hope you don’t stress too very much 🙂 I would never blacklist you, though I have culled out some lately due to what my soul craves, no fears, you’re still here for me, always 🙂

  4. Don’t know what’s going on. I thought that maybe you’d accidentally blacklisted me (if that’s even possible), but yours isn’t the only blog I can’t follow, so the problem must be on my side. This is bugging me. I’ll go to the forum for help.
    I WILL follow you 🙂

  5. WP has done it again! I just went to your site, and discovered I’m not following you 😦 even though I clicked follow last night. I think I should take a look in my settings and administrator. Grrr… xx

  6. thank you Pragal, I find sand a unique thing, sometimes so very soft and feels nice digging your toes in on a sunny day, but after awhile you realize it actually causes a rough patch. Yin and Yang I suppose, but still a thousand small grains can build wonderful things ❤

  7. that naughty imp, WP is a strange world, does what it feels like 🙂 I’ve been a bit absent lately, playing catchup as I can, made some changes and life should be a bit smoother now 🙂 life is good ❤ and thank you Jane, I appreciate your kind words ❤

    These lines are incredibly beautiful to me!! The rest of the poem no less too. There is such delicate beauty to the way you weave words and they reach deep.

  9. I see that Magarisa has commented on the same passage that I was going to highlight here. You have a wonderful way with words. This is gorgeous:

    In these worlds of glass
    we fear the breakage of carelessness,

    I think the naughty imp inside my laptop keeps un-following you. It’s certainly not my doing.

  10. This rings so true, Kim:

    “we grab our spoons
    and trying to carry each bit forward,
    find we lose more by holding tighter
    yet when we release and let go
    the storm passes and piles more at our feet,
    yet we will climb
    step by step as we only know how
    to reach the summit.”
