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.

Happy National Poetry Month !



Hello!
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...

Choosing Love over Fear: Poem of an Inspired Heart





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!



My choice

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 choice
my aha moment
my destiny.
Now I can fly.


 







 Always choose love! It's never the wrong choice!

Thanks for sharing your day with me!
