There is a light

Tempered by thoughts and feelings,
life collected in boxes
these images of the past,
like photographs and memories
gifting us with recognition of yesterday
and the moments faded for years
resurfacing unexpectedly
and knowing it is us.
We are changing as the years pass us
yet we move along in conjunction
just not realizing at the time
till we look back and see the differences,
glances in mirrors at our road mapped weathered lines
on faces and hands that reach out
to stop it if only for just one moment,
to embrace this very second,
hold it in an embrace
before it slips away.
How is it in a split second
here and then gone on days that should be
filled with a quiet contemplation,
but perhaps this is really the sum of the parts,
to hold gently and feel the heartbeat,
share the last moments in tenderness and love
as the tick tock slows to ceasing,
a breath lingers and is gone
and I feel the sense of soul
rising into a better place.
Grave digger plays in my head,
so that I can feel the rain
as it falls I inhale the damp cool air
slipping a silent goodbye to the remains
a light finds me and I know
it’s gonna be okay for life plays itself out
and the lesson comes in the letting go,
of being present and aware
there is always more,
for there is a light
that tells me so.

A new year and a new day, waking to the commotion and tearing into the darkness to stop the dog/cat/rabbit frenzy. There it sat huddling, shaking as I carefully lifted its quivering body. Gathering it in a towel, I carried it inside. I stroked its velvet fur softly for an hour as I sipped my coffee. Knowing that it most likely would not make it through, chose to share my time shedding love over it like it would be enough to save it, at heart knowing it would only help to soothe me. Life and its lessons, through beauty and the things we devote ourselves to investing in, the love and kindness we all share, the hope and the letting go at times, visions around us if we just only stop and look in a new awareness, appreciation for the little things and the big things. I could think that this was a horrid start to the new year, but it is one more cog in the workings of this life we live, each day should be celebrated, each life should be honored, and even a small wild thing can slip silently away embraced by hands that are always wanting to save. RIP little friend, shine on little angel.
A four-year anniversary here at WP and feeling blessed to be able to share with you the things I find in my life, good and bad, happy and sad. Peace and blessings and sharing the light that found me, and the bunny who I believe shared it with me when I asked for a sign of more, of light and goodness.

Beyond the thought

Rising to the moment that begs knowing,
hear the words whispered in the thickest times,
hanging like a fog surrounding the world
and robed in the gloom, the light finds its way
to breaking in and reaching
beyond the thought to shine.
Step by step through the fire dwindling,
rising into the cool of a silent night
I reach out to touch the goodness found,
the prayer that soothes like balm
the tired and weary mind.
Standing at the edge of the journey
as it unfolds like a treasure map
and the tiny pieces gathered,
having no meaning at the time
when built into beauty show
the path chosen correct after all,
dawn breaks on the horizon
pink and blue in its perfection
and as the haze lifts,
burned off by the might of warmth
I settle into self
content and aware
and the new coming of a day beckons
with a step I climb
higher to the surface of bliss.

Still on a bit if a hiatus but found a few moments this morning to stop in to say hello. Hope your world is finding you in moments of beautiful thoughts and feelings of happiness. The pup is doing so much better, work going fast and furious and I am truly, truly blessed to be able to embrace the decisions of this year, finding a job I adore for an employer who treats all of her employees like gold and a holiday season that quickly approaches, the stress level is almost at zero and wrapping my arms around the joy life brings. Peace and love and be back into normalcy mode soon. ❤

Murmuration

Linked to the chain of universe speak
the colors cascade the thoughts of those inspired.
We glimpse the beauty
as sudden moments thrust themselves
unexpectedly before our souls,
reaching in to pull the strings
of awe and miracles
as life spirals and sweeps in
carrying us away.
Shades of hues we are drawn to
bring the eye in closer to see
a thousand bits of nature hung
on silver clouds drifting in their rhythmic way
no rhyme or reason
to the amazing moments
this life gifts to us,
if we see and become aware
like our steady breath
giving sustenance,
we carry the images of the presence
of a present on high.

Learning a new word today: murmuration (a flock of starlings) and this image captured my interest, blue hues and a moving show I’d love to see in my lifetime.
