Oh the sweetness

Golden sun slips higher
lazy clouds lay sideways never rushing
their journey across
into the bright blue atmosphere.
We move slow and steady
rearranging moments after time
always the same now shifting
still so calm and tinged with peace.
Oh the sweetness of mornings,
cool air on the skin
and the taste of sweetness
of the coming of a new day.
The taste of warmth in the mug,
steam rises giving scent of coffee
stimulating the mood to wakefulness,
we arrive in the moment
as eager dogs prance ready,
time to walk
and move through the glorious view
of paradise.

Starting the new job today and having to change up the normal routine, some morning post readings, one written, coffee sipped and mind slowly waking, ahhhh…..good morning my friends, hope it is amazing for you all ❤

Sweetly saved

We feed the need within’
walking aisles
meandering aimlessly,
wasted yet pleasured time
and avoiding
the empty spaces
as the demise of orange and black
gives an early birth to green and red.
Spirit sings softly
come, have a look-see
down this way pulled like children
memories play out as I gaze,
remembering the gentle days
of torn pretty papers and bows
and the box that was always found
holding the sweetness
in circles.
How something has shifted
deep within as we struggle through nights
chaotic nightmares follow us like wolves and sheep
till we wake at dawn
under the moon lights lamp,
wondering at the thoughts
that made the heart thunder
like summers in the sky above.
We always chose favorites
then and now our tastes changing
and the cherry red has moved
to the calming cream of coconut,
scents inspiring the soul to dream
of yesterdays once more.
The sugar on the tongue
making the medicine go down
in a delightful way day after day,
we circle round to reinvent,
finding ourselves pulled to the moments
where joy lived
and housed in pretty boxes
once a year given,
brings a quiet light and laughter
to the wondering heart.

A strange night of heart wrenching nightmares and a beautiful morning walk, cool and peaceful. Balance of life I suppose. I went to do some shopping and usually I abhor the idea of Christmas intruding when Halloween has just ended….way too early, but I drifted down the seasonal candy aisle and was tickled pink to see the lifesaver Christmas boxes. Remembering how I had gotten one every year in my stocking as a child, and I didn’t think they even made them anymore. Of course they were across from the Halloween inspired kids cereals on clearance, but no, I did not buy any scary apple jacks or boo berries….nor did I buy the lifesavers. Do they even make coconut flavored ones anymore? Things that go through my mind. Sweet ❤

Building goodness

We work with hands
and souls
adding a bit of this and that
the scents of life fill the air
as we roll out the goodness
like welcome mats,
in joy we move fluidly
twirling to the sounds
of the wind that blows,
the heart filled
overflowing with the sense
of coming home.
Flying skies bring gifts
and time will move a bit slower
waiting for days
and smiling faces
meeting with the hope and love
shared with souls who speak
through ink and key,
as the spirit moves us
united we stand
cut from the cloth
and pieced together
the garment of a sky
spread with diamonds wished upon
and crescent moons punched out
leaving the clouds jealous
of the glow.
We are building goodness
with peace and love
prayer and hope
for a new day richer
with the lightness of a giving heart.
