Word For The Day…

From:  Gratefulness.org

Art is not simply works of art; it is the spirit that knows beauty, that has music in its soul and the color of sunsets in its handkerchief, that can dance on a flaming world and make the world dance too.

Repeating shapes formed

doing the same thing

over and over again

the soul slowly loses itself

in the dense fog of blindness

until…a succumb to surrender…

a crown jewel for the soul

at last insanity is halted

fog’s density is dissipated

perception is restored

by choice new shapes are fashioned

constantly growing, changing

broadening in understanding

freed from a monotonous prison

to a province of diversity unlimited

flourishing soul’s sane mind of peace,

joy and infinite creativity.

Mother Nature’s Balm

Sometimes when the soul

is hit with too many

things at once

it dives into distress

frozen, unable to focus

the stirring inside

disrupts the flow of peace

can’t find the words to pray

tears will not release

it is then the only source of 

comfort can be found

in the healing balm of 

Mother Nature

Courage To Fly

A stirring in the soul

foreboding…fear

will not remain silent

only choice

be still…listen

embrace

then, only then

will its voice be set free 

into the wild

that the soul

may once again 

soar upon

the wings of eagles
