Mindfulness

Sit still
when
words fail
you.

Relax, quite,
when
silence surrounds
you.

Ignore sounds
when
blank inside
you.

No thought
when
muse enters
you.

Pay attention
when
writing overtakes
you.

Rain

Truth, like the wind
A fleeting moment in time
Believe in the rain that follows
Would the wound heal in the summer sun?

A bluebird still sings
A melody carried forth in the day
When the sun springs forth with healing rays
The heart mends, truth sank in, going forth on a rainbow.

Grass

Morning dew settles
A sweet kiss on my white face
Spring has come to stay

If I Could Fly

If I could fly
would I still live here or would
I find a better place because I could?

If I could fly
would I consult my mind
or my heart for guidance there?

If I could fly
I know my mind holds the
dream, but my heart holds the soul.

Risk is the journey of the soul.

If I could fly
I would like to to think one follows
the heart to that better place that the mind dreams.

If I could fly
I know my gut is always right, because
my mind can play tricks and my heart can be blind.

If I could fly
I would be out of my comfort zone and
step out to new possibilities that provide a great journey.

That's just the way life is.
