dreaming

the night was clear
it was time to fly into “slumberland”

the enchantment of the night

the desire to be free

my spirit soars into the beyond

knowing that out in the Universe

the calm and serenity of the night

would make my world alright.

landscapes so blue… so true

the moonlight colouring the land a gentle blue

a mesmerizing hue of all that is real

when in a dreamscape I am with YOU.

I wanted to, but life got in the way.

surrounded by activity, yet alone

Over the holidays I read prose, poems and thoughts that expressed, the reality of feeling alone in life. Gave me pause to think about my own life, my memories, and the people who have come and gone over the years.

nights of contemplation

There were days, nights even weeks, when I was lost in a dreamworld of my own. Questioning the emotion of love, of loving being loved, What I have learned over the years, is forget about expectations, they are your journey and no one elses. Two people can stand in the same room side by side, and not see the same things at all.

In PL, we are given the tools to realize that the person we have to love is ourselves, only in knowing who we are, and our needs can we share them with someone else. Unconditional love is not easy. But I believe it is attainable. To know sadness, you have had to know happiness. Being human is not a flaw, it is a blessing. To experience life, we have to let go and welcome new energy.

Everyone wishes to be happy and lead a happy life. In PL we can experience true joy and happiness when we are able to freely express our unique individuality )Makoto) in each moment of our lives/

come one come all

come one come all, come to the ball, it is open to all..

the winds whispered and sang through the trees,

hoping to catch someone, anyone’s ear,

but, the lazy river and the foliage basking in the sun

paid no heed, there was no rush, fall wouldn’t arrive for another couple of months.

Too soon, they awoke to found that the ground was covered in snow, and the cool wind that blew, was in no mood for a ball,

It had come in with the fall, ready to blow the leaves down, and was ready to whip itself up into all it could be, to ensure a clear path

for what was to be. High above from her vantage point above the snow queen polished her wand, making sure her stars were sharp and ready to dispense of all of her glittering diamonds of flakes. With a sweep of her wand, the land below would be covered in snow…

Then, what a glorious landscape it would be. she would call back the wind and open the days to the majesty of the winter sun… Only then would her handiwork be shown at its best. Her diamond flakes would sparkle and amaze, she loved this time of year…

Once more the call would go out, come one, come all, it is time for the ball.

Seasons come and go, we need to flow with the changes. In this way, we will always rejoice at what there is before us. Always be in the NOW.

rust you say!

Nay it is art…

under the majesty of the sky

the temperament of the clouds

the treasure lay,

surrounded by a crowd of flowers

lush and green waving in the breeze

cheerfully saying hello to passersby

oh… for a closer look

checking mirrors back and front,

I pulled over to seek my treasure out

IMG_20190831_112744_resized_20190901_123148650

not gems that gleam in the sun

but a sturdy piece of artwork

that has been lovingly blessed each day

by natures wonderful expressions

(most call it weather)

set in concrete for all to see,

this piece of art has grown lovelier with each passing season

I can’t say for sure, but I would guess

that not many are struck by its beauty

or come to admire, yet pass it each day

such is life, in French there is a saying

“to each his/her own”

You see rust, you say! Lad show me the way!


PL calendar day 3

Instead of worrying, do something about it..

It doesn’t help to over think situations such as, “What if this happens?” or “Things might end up that way.”  Instead be proactive and change how you see and do things in each situation.

no sense or nonsense

V Lock Ard Gorge 4.25.17

it was a restless dream

I heard my thoughts,

the challenges from various sections

of my overworked gray cells

the unfinished sentences

the words of wisdom

clashing with aggressive shouts

the voice of reason was not to be ignored

throught it all

a part of me sat unmoved

was this nonsense

or merely me

unable to make sense

of the prattle and the inner voices

that when all vying for attention

at the same time

make no sense at all

Nick, Mel and Craig rang the partially hidden little bell

Nick and Mel, sat down to wait a spell

While Craig wandered off to find the well

“oh look”, said Mel

both doors are open, front and back

“for sure” said Nick, “let us explore

Craig will find us when he gets back”

Inside they went to look around

Meanwhile Craig having found a  fast running stream

decided to explore a little more .. will the 3 friends,

end up back where they began? Although they started in one location,  each had his/her own story to tell when ….

lost and found

butterfly huawei1

If I were an object, I would say I was lost

if broken I would hope to be fixed

found by a stranger, I hope they would rescue me

but, \I am not an object,

I am not lost, nor am I broken

So I don’t need to be found, or fixed

Life is not playing a trick on me

I am in mourning, lost in my own thoughts

realizing that I am in uncharted territory

like a butterfly I am buffeted by the wind

there is no place to hide

on the outside I shimmer and shine

while inside I dip and dive

from the sublime to mediocre moments

while I wait for the  painful reality of now

becomes tomorrow

and another day.

I miss what was

no more no less

Q


Do I feel stressed, no, but tonight I am sad, in May it will be a year since my husband passed…I am overwhelmed at times, at just how much awareness I have of how love is a blessing in all its forms. Thank you my dearest friends, when you reach out, it is a balm and a reminder that love is Universal – You are appreciated and fill my heart with gratitude.  I love you!
