Stacking peace

Layered mood drifts along
awaking in strength from dreams that tell tales,
reducing the darkness bit by bit
as a simple light illuminates
a waking world to a wish of peace.
We stack the good times
and leave behind the unneeded piles,
the confusion rippled into knowing
by the simple things that matter
as we rise into the blue
our voices come together in the morning
to create a new dawn ripe
with the promise of a better day,
and words lay between the colors
so beautiful to behold,
sifted out to leave behind
the nightmares that surfaced
and saving for sharing
all that matters,
all that is good.
We will climb up from the bottom
and reach the highest place
where we will see forever
through the haze of darkness,
and fly into the calm of truth.

Realm of calm

We slowly unfurl clenched fists
one finger for each fear held tight
unwinding the cord in release
we breathe in
and slowly exhale the poisoned air
one more finger loose and free
and then another
stretching into the eternity that we see
before us.
We know we need it to be this way,
open hands ready in acceptance
so we let go of what hinders the goal,
eyes wide open to the hope and joy
of the flow of blessings
waiting before us
for the taking.
We wonder why we held so tight
to each and every bit of darkness
and though we felt the tightness,
the constriction was not felt
until it became too late,
where we had lost our way
setting aside our treasure map
and forgetting where we were going,
our fingers now trace the future lines
not yet determined but we feel the energy
and the invisible threads that pull us
as we pick up feathers tossed
by angels with delight
we give thanks for the signs given,
we relearn confidence in our choice.

I have been feeling so light lately, open and accepting to the goodness from the souls that surround me. Finding feathers left and right and just being open to it all. Yesterday at work a customer told me how helpful I was and that she remembered me from the last time she had been in, and that I was such a joy to her. I felt blessed and honored and thanked her with a wide smile. Ten minutes later another woman came in, having gone to the blood bank two doors down, she was fine as she picked out her hair color that she was having trouble finding, but as I was running her through checkout, she asked if she could sit. We don’t have any sitting areas up front and I came around when I saw her go quite white-she began rocking and grasping the marble counter and I put my arms around her as she went down, taking us both with her. I directed my coworker to get some wet cold paper towels and talked to her, cooling her forehead and neck with the towels as her male companion looked on in shock. I asked him to go to the blood bank and get some juice and help, she didn’t want me to call 911 and then her eyes rolled back into her head again. I never realized till I woke up today I’ve a nasty bruise on my arm where I tried to cushion her head from crashing into the hard floor. I just remember her friend with tears in his eyes thanking me over and over again as I just stood there shaking after she had gone. The blood bank people came and gave her juice and helped her walk back over to their offices. I pray she’s fine and I felt so good to have had some first aid training at the old job that kept me calm enough to attend to her till help arrived. I slept last night like the dead but woke refreshed and filled with overflowing peace. Thought I’d share some of it with you all ❤ peace and blessings ❤ and always, be kind.

Gentle flow

Into the abyss
Morning awakens the restless mind
Torn from dreams
The realm of change
Another day.
Eyes wide open
As mind sits calm
Gentle thoughts brought forth
To banish the dark
To blow away the storm
Of today.
Peace sits gently
Like flowers on stones
Breath moves in and out
In control
Deep flowing
Close the eyes to the winds
Swirling tornado of mood
Walk away to embrace
To keep the smooth edges
To be.
