Positive shine

Edges fall down
expectant souls gather
released from the darkness
as light glimmers and gleams,
when positivity shines
everyone takes in
the peace and hope
and dreams of abundance for new days,
shining through
as only love can do.
At the edge
where souls mingle in earnest,
sharing and giving
into the emptiness
the essences overflow
be it simple acts or an ear to hear,
through fear we stand
we are found often giving back
by taking nothing more than needed,
we release the universal bounty
that multiplies in form
a gift of peace
for hands that receive and pass it on.

Peace and blessings to all for a glorious Saturday….and every day of course ๐Ÿ’œ

Lightness of being

Softly she rises,
her day moves languid like syrup
sweetness savored,
eyes slow to focus as she watches
the darkness turn to light.
This moment lifts her,
the new day to find
all she imagined in dreams of sleep,
body relaxed she steps through rooms
welcoming the ghosts of yesterday
to guide her through,
questions answered she finds she had always known
the final response,
expected and typical
she tucks the memory in her pocket
and slips away.
Who do we see
in the glimmer of bubbles that float
out of reach,
we who had created the beauty
and in loving set them free
to be found by someone searching
for just that tiny spark of happy,
unexpected gifts that deliver
a sense of whimsy and a reminder
of back when youth seemed to last forever,
we remember once more
that sense of freedom in rising
with endless hours to explore,
no fears or worries to mar the small mind,
just the summer that waited at the edge of school walls
and the feelings of being invincible,
a being with no bounds
a soul released to be.
The lightness of being beckons
to join the dance of life,
and embrace the beauty found,
hold fast the love
and let the darkness slip by the wayside,
for what matters is the journey
and the gift of friends found,
blessed and honored
we never forget the greatness
of days filled with so much.

Happy Birthday to my “niece up the block” and hoping the world enjoys the gifts this day brings, the beauty found and the greatness of this amazing universe.

We all shine on

Waiting in the wings
flickers of moonlight fill the mood
overflowing buckets of stars falling
shining on like diamonds
we wonder why
grounded on sand
how can we be
as bright as thee.
Twinkling silver dots the sky
whispers of the wind slip by
calling us to higher things
knowing the gifts this life always brings,
we stand together in darker days
time moving in its wondrous way
we cling to the wishes
granted by stars
aware of who and why we are
drifting through space
the human race
to share the love
is all it takes.

A poem for all of my blogger friends, Sheldon who asked for more art particularly, a rhyming bit for the G man, hope and love to gift to E and more,
so many to name but if you’re reading, know you are included. We all shine on….always.
Artwork created with watercolors, swarovski crystals (the stars) and OPI nailpolish (My voice is a little Norse) color an hour ago โค and unfortunately, my camera did not do the colors justice, moon is a shade of crimson mixed with a whole bunch of others I don't remember ๐Ÿ™‚ that's how I roll ๐Ÿ™‚
