A meager slumber

toils the mind from

too many thoughts

clamped tightly within

speech becomes muted

unable to release thoughts

left in the unknown

with unanswered questions

awaiting Wisdom’s whisper

of guidance…

a pivotal moment

do I ride the waves on

Patience’s surfboard

– OR –

let these thoughts become

tsunamis that drown me…

in this moment I choose 

Patience inspired by 

lessons learned from

past tsunamis – 

all questions will be answered and

all things will work out for the good

– IN –

God’s perfect timing!

Wisdom Gained

In Response To:

Ragtag Daily Prompt – RDP Thursday – Tiptoe

Word Of The Day Challenge – Gloomy

V.J.’s Weekly Challenge – Repercussions 

Sadje’s What Do You See #67 – Photo prompt

When my heart becomes

gloomy

my first instinct is to 

tiptoe

around the issue and 

pretend

that all is a well and good

facade

but I have painfully learned the

repercussions

of avoidance the darkness shall

reign

leaving my heart 

imprisoned

unable to walk into the

Light

if I do not embrace it in

Love

that turns the darkness into

Sunshine

and repetitive foolish choices into 

Wisdom

A Wistful To Wise Journey

Written In Response To:

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #105 – PROMPT:  “Only if I knew it then” – Wistfulness.

Star Point Lighthouse, Dartmouth, England

   Oh those “only if” or “if only’s” that at one time held me down in such unnecessary melancholy.  Through the many seasons of growing I have come to realize that the wisdom I know today would have been futile for me to know back then.  I was not spiritually enlightened enough to receive it. I had to go through those years of the foolishness of “spiritual bankruptcy” in order to grow into the wisdom of  “spiritual riches.”  

     Today I have learned not to dwell in the sad longing of  “what ifs” and instead use the lessons learned through hindsight that become the wisdom of foresight.  By doing this I have broken the cycle of insanity’s “doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result” to a sane mind that makes new and different choices bringing peace of mind.

a beginning from

feeling the way through darkness

to guidance by Light
