Safely hidden

There is nothing, absolutely nothing that can take you away from yourself, unless you willingly offer it up. But even then, even then, a small part of you always remain safely hidden in your inner most being, ready to be rekindled when you get your spark back.

Are you grateful ?

Do you feel gratitude towards the light?
Towards the air you breathe?
Are you grateful for summer breezes,
Wildflower hills and little islands dotted
With nesting seagulls?
Are you appreciating every sunrise
And every starlit night?
Thanking the earth every day
For giving you life?
