LIGHT STILL SHINES ON A DARK WEEK

May 24, 2017

LOOK FOR IT!

The sun still shines

on dark rainy days.

You can see it reflected

in EVERY puddle!

POUNCE!

SPLASH!

SMILE!

THIS WEEK’S WEATHER

May 22, 2017

Enlightened

Beauty in a storm

when I do not look in fear

sun peeks through the clouds

YOUR CHOICE!

May 19, 2017

Day three . . . will the rain EVER stop?

My mood was falling like the steady drops of rain

So I stepped outside.

I looked up at the clouds

Intending to share

a piece of my mind!

Instead,

The cooling, cleansing drops had their way

And I laughed

Then pounced in the nearest puddle!

I was young again!

REBORN AND REFRESHED

May 16, 2017

Like The Garden Grows

Too often I focus on the fallen leaves

Scattered on my weed covered bit of earth.

Signs of death and decay?

Perhaps, and yet . .  .

A rake,

A hoe,

A change of focus,

And new buds and blossoms appear .  . .

Or perhaps they lay in wait all along.

Beyond the shadows shines the blazing sun!

Finding Love

May 11, 2017

I primped and perfected

or so I thought

but felt nothing.

I floated in an ocean of if only

and why not

as the waves grew higher

and brought me down.

You reached out,

you lifted me up,

you loved me.

You saw your beloved

absent of all those doubts

and insecurities.

The waters stilled

and as I looked at my reflection in them

I saw you.

CAMELION

May 9, 2017

My mind can only know so much.

It is only when my heart and soul are fed

that I am forever changed.

FREE YOUR INNER CHILD

May 8, 2017

When I was a child,

it did not really matter

that the carrot I pulled from the ground to eat

still had soil on it,

nor that I’d wiped the rest on my shirt.

The choice, there was none . . .

Focus on the carrot or on the dirt?

CRUNCH!
