Thank you for stopping by and taking a moment to reflect, to be inspired.
Today's poem comes from being inspired myself after reading a good book.
Isn't it great when that happens? I love to read books that inspire me. Do you?
Here is my poem. I hope you enjoy.
Awaken to the stirring
of joy within you-
let the truth of your beauty be your guide, your clue;
your happiness lies not in what you do
but in finding your passion and to it being true.
You are more than what you see,
you can create your world the way you want it to be.
Infinite is the love within you,
immeasurable the power behind you.
Rest with these bits of wisdom,
let them carry you into the light of your full expression,
and awaken to the stirring of joy within you.

Thank you for stopping by.
Today I have a short inspirational poem
inspired by my love of the beach and new beginnings.
As we get ready for summer, let us not forget that
now is the prefect time for a fresh start, for embracing the new that comes,
for forging ahead with our dreams!
To look forward-
facing the rising sun-
fills me with hope;
it is the dawning of a new day,
new possibilities and joys
Inhaling the sweet aroma of hope
I feel my soul expand.
There is nothing but love
and lessons from the past,
memories have inspired me-
at least the ones I keep;
the rest have taught me well.
a moment to breathe in hope,
to feel restored.
Forward is your vision
when fueled by love,
Thanks again for your support of my writing dream.... may all your dreams come true!

Thanks for being here with me.
How is your Spring going?
I have been thinking about growth, life changes, the power we have within
ourselves to be our own source of inspiration and strength. We are more amazing than
we give ourselves credit for! I have a feeling you are a muse to someone, to many perhaps,
so this one is for you.
Spark of Love
The spark of love
is alive, in you,
ready to bloom and
Establish roots and surpass the past.
Shine the in a million ways!
Life is color,
life is a song;
all it takes is a muse
to light the fuse,
for you to have what you need when you are ready
to show yourself
Go forth and find your muse!
Let vibrant petals fall where they may
as you stand in the sun and walk
toward your destiny,
spark of love!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing in my poetry. It means so very much to me!

Thanks for stopping by!
I have been very inspired by spring colors this week.
With so much bad weather happening all over the place, I sought out
photos and flowers to give me that much needed burst of color. That got me
thinking about the act of providing ourselves with color. With joy.
Our lives are colorful, beautiful expressions of love; we say we "brighten someone's day"
or that someone has a "vibrant personality".
What word speaks to you? sparkle? shine? vibrant?colorful? bold? Let that be your word, your inspiring platform, your self-descriptive tune.
I say, it is time to be all of the above!
Here is a little poem on the topic of Spring and renewal. Enjoy!
What lies within
What lies within
lies dormant only for a time
bursts through the
beauty and power
waiting for the sun
of our allowance
to shine upon the seeds
of dreams, possibilities,
Love waters the seeds of our innermost, innate beauty-
it is faith and hope that provide the soil ;
this is the season
of joyful, colorful
expressions of beauty
and life renewing
Be the beauty you wish to see in the world.

Thanks for spending a moment and sharing my writing with me.
I have been doing a little writing, a little submitting, wanting to do more reading.
It had been a very long month for me, and I am glad to see things looking up!
I wrote the following poem when I was thinking about the dream I have for my life,
how it has changed in recent years, and how far I have to go. I have to tell myself,
look at how far you have come!
Let's remember to keep our dream within our vision. Our heart has eyes to see with too, you know.
Toward the sky
I turn my life toward seeing
sunrise after sunrise dawn upon my dream.
I lift my heart,
offering up my dream
I raise my hands,
then lower them quickly.
I am empty,
waiting to be filled.
I send my hope and prayers toward the sky
Setting my heart upon the rising of the sun
Releasing my control, my desire,
letting the wind lift it and carry it away,

It is National Poetry Month!
I am so very glad to have writing, poetry in particular, as part of my life now.
I am so glad you are a part of my poetry life, too.
Sharing in something so personal is soaffirming and invigorating!
I wanted to start with a quote on poetry today. What do you think?
I think this is true. What truth could Plato be referring to?
I leave that for you to ponder, but I think it has something to do with
eternal truth,wisdom, and peace. For it to be vital, to me,
it would have to include elements of those things.
Things that impact your life, your spirit. You.
What do you think?
I also think poetry, in the form of nature, of beauty and love, is all around us all the time.
We just have to be open to seeing it.
Our eyes and heart have to open and receptive to seeing it!
Well, in celebration of poetry this month I am going to be writing some new poetry and sharing it here soon. I enjoy quotes, though, and wanted to share a few with you today.
My next few posts will be poems!
What is it you like most about poetry? I guess you can tell that, for me, it is that poetry involves our senses, our emotions, our connection to concepts and ideas.
And it goes with us into the depths of our heart and engages our innermost self with our world.
Until next time. Stay tuned for new poetry!!
Thanks again for including me in your day!
Always look for the poetry of the moment, in the moment. It is always there, shining right
before your eyes...

Hello! Thank you for visiting with me. I am so glad to share my poetry with you.
As it is National Poetry Month, I think I will stop by the library today and pick up
some poetry books.
I am so excited!
I just know I will find inspiration in the pages of a book today...
Do you get inspired and uplifted by what you read? I make an effort (failing sometimes) to get books that do just that for me- inspire me and encourage me. I have favorite authors, favorite books that I read over and over. I also like to find new authors. New books are like a gift, waiting to be opened on Christmas morning!
What I am reading right now isn't a poetry book (gasp! Don't worry, I will share what I find at the library!). It is Wayne Dyer's 10 Secrets for Success and Inner Peace. Such a great book!
In it he mentions love vs. fear, and that was my inspiration for the poem below. I think that part of
living a fulfilled life involves the letting go of fear and learning to embrace love instead.
I know that, for me, this one step has been challenging and part of my life lesson. Anyway, I hope
you enjoy the poem!
I sit in silence and contemplate
the profundity of what I just read-
the wisdom of the words sit heavy on
my soul and yet makes it lighter
at the same time!
All along it was me-
I knew it was!
I am the one who brought all things
into my life-
I am the one who listened to fear,
who feared the shadows,
even though you create a shadow
when you stand in the light!
But now I see it all so clearly
that the choice of love was there to make
all along, too.
And I choose love!
Letting love be my guide is
my aha moment
Now I can fly.
Thanks for sharing your day with me!
