The Gift Within Silence: Meditation, Poetry, Enlightenment




Hi! Welcome!

     I have been thinking recently about the quiet moments, the ones we seem to have to make a
conscious effort to enjoy; those moments of reflection and introspection that offer us
respite, insight and renewal. I want to make time for more of that in my life. Do you?
It is almost as if I am craving the peace and guidance that comes in those moments
when I sit in silence and allow myself to just BE. I can release my sense of urgency
concerning issues in my life that are coming up. I can relax.
     Spending time acknowledging blessings, envisioning the future, releasing and letting go
of negative energy, all happen within, in the sacred space that waits for us to be present with it.
Such gifts come to us when we do! Today's poem is a reflection upon that realization.
     Does it feel as though you have been drawn to allowing, or experiencing, more quiet moments in your life? Perhaps the beauty and joy around you has been trying to get your attention, saying "let me in!"







I found this quote on stillness and quiet moments that spoke to me. See if it sparks something inside of you!

"In stillness lives wisdom. In quiet you'll find peace.
In solitude you'll find yourself."
                                                   Robin Sharma




Here is my poem today. I hope you enjoy!







The Gift Within

So the moment came for me to rest,
to still my mind and open it
to the wonders of the world.
I was unprepared for the storm that surged within-
so wild and forceful-
and I was undone by the beauty that surrounded me
once the storm had passed.
Radiant light shone everywhere
from everywhere and to everything.
I found myself to be a point of light
hiding at first from her brilliance,
afraid.
Listening to the voice within the silence
I somehow gained my own;
my own still voice came rushing out
like so much water gushing.
I was flooded with goodness;
peace was carried on the wind.
All this occurred without a sound
just a willingness to know
to be
to love
myself
at last.



Have a beautiful day, and let your knowing shine bright!!
Thank you for being such a special part of my writing world, where I am becoming
more ME all the time!

The Power of Our Inner Light: A Poem of Reflection and Awareness



HI!

Today I have  poem about the inner light we have within, the love we are and
the love that we share and impact the world with.
Being true to ourselves,  living from that truth, has become so important to me.
I believe in our power to make a difference, to do something big. Do you?
I hope you enjoy the poem today and welcome any feedback!
Have a great day!




Bringing Sunshine

You are a light,
a source of life,
more resplendent than you know.
You radiate timeless wisdom and create miracles
you know not of.
In your wake lie wonder, healing and peace.
You bring sunshine to the world!
This is something I don't want you to forget
in the dark of night -
that you are spreading rays of hope and inspiration
upon all.
The warmth of the dreams you cause to be fulfilled
is felt as sunlight flowing through the atmosphere,
as the love you bring flows, flows, flows,
spilling into the shadows and into the light.

Poetry of Awakening:The Stirring of Joy












Hi!
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.





The Stirring


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.

Hope and Dreams: Embracing the Vision


Hi!
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!
 
 
 
 Looking Forward: In Retrospect

















To look forward-
facing the rising sun-
fills me with hope;
it is the dawning of a new day,
new possibilities and joys
calling me.
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.
So now,
a moment to breathe in hope,
to feel restored.
Forward is your vision
when fueled by love,
by hope,
by faith.


Thanks again for your support of my writing dream.... may all your dreams come true!

Spark of Love; Tending to the Muse











Hi!
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.

Blessings!













Spark of Love

The spark of love
is alive, in you,
ready to bloom and
bursting with
color.
Grow! Bloom!
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
the way.
Go forth and find your muse!
Let vibrant petals fall where they may
as you stand in the sun and walk
toward your destiny,
you beautiful,
incredible,
spark of love!



Thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing in my poetry. It means so very much to me!

Spring Reflection; poetry and beauty within









Hello!
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
then
bursts through the
earth
shooting upwards
heavenward
releasing potential
even
dreams ;
beauty and power
lie within
dormant
waiting for the sun
of our allowance
to shine upon the seeds
of dreams, possibilities,
potential.
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
itself.



Be the beauty you wish to see in the world.

Toward the sky; A poem of vision and dreams





Hi!
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
and wait.
Setting my heart upon the rising of the sun
I wait.
Releasing my control, my desire,
letting the wind lift it and carry it away,
I receive.
