Personal Dreams and Wishes

Hello!      Glad you stopped by. Today's poem is about wishes and dreams. I have been thinking a lot about personal dreams, life dreams, wishes of our heart. I have even been reading my inspirational books again. I love to read those over and over. Staying inspired is so important! Have you realized a dream recently? Are you working toward a dream? I hope you are surrounded by inspiration. I hope your  inner-fire is well-lit.      Sometimes in the pursuit of a dream things in life change more than we think they will, more than we think possible when we first start on the journey. Thinking about that, and the nature of dreams and wishes, prompted the poem below.      Wishes and Dreams My wishes are luring me enticing me my dreams shine like stars twinkling in the galaxy of my soul's expanse. I wonder what fuels my dreams, turns wishes into reality- is it love that spurs the rising of my dream and keeps it flame brightly burning- or is it de

Poetry and Truth

Hello! Today   I have a poem for you. Thank you for visiting with me today! I am posting only one poem for today but really hope you like it. It is one of those poems that speak of  the experience of your inner self, of looking within. This topic has been a personal one as of late, and seems to inspire a poetic feeling within me. It is similar to when I would read a nonfiction book that gave me bursts of insight and awareness. So, for all those aha moments, here goes! Somewhere Somewhere inside of me lies the truth; joy and wisdom reside in harmony waiting my permission before they go, before they burst forth from within and radiate outward to greet a life on purpose; Somewhere inside of me lies wonders untold; dreams and emotions dwell side by side leading me forward even as past memories linger like the wind that gently carries a boat across the water; Somewhere inside of me is Me. Thanks again for sharing in my poetry and writin

Summer plans and Poetry

Greetings!      I have been embracing the beginning of summer and am amazed at how fast time is going. It will be the Fourth of July soon! Who has plans made already? Not me.      I stepped back from my WIP  earlier but now I am back into it. I am feeling inspired to write poetry again. That feels wonderful!      Plans for the rest of the summer includes writing, promoting, planning ahead. Maybe visit the pool a few times. I have been walking on a regular schedule, which feels good. I need to get back into my yoga.      What refreshes you and keeps you motivated? I have had such kind words and actions expressed on my behalf that it makes me burst with gratitude. I appreciate such encouragement and support. Wouldn't the world be so much better if we just helped each other rather than ignored each  other, competed with each other, kept ourselves so busy we can't think straight? But that's another topic!     Here are some poems that I have written recently. I

Writing on vacation

      Ah, home. Nothing like it. Especially when you first get back from a vacation. Getting back from vacation, I immediately noticed how much can change in 8 days. Flowers and weeds exploded. Strawberries ripened. Peaches on our tree grew ! Such a fun thing to watch. I anticipate summer all year and relish the sight of things growing. Speaking of that, my cat was happy to see me then treated me with a little spell of feigned ambivalence. What? Was she used to being without me that quick? Or was she mad at me for leaving? Miss Independent. She thinks I can't feel her purr when she sits on my feet at night on top of the covers. Ha. Jokes on her. I know!      Anyway, I am back and have to make progress with my writing and some needed home repairs. I need to set some goals for the next few months and figure out the direction I want to go with regards to my writing. I thought I might write some poetry while on vacation and even took some paper and pen (!!) but only man
