Is your heart a’tune with the moment
Of the Soul’s turn to grow?
In Winter’s purple battles fueling
The June breezes that will blow.
And fields at dawn will ripen
And feet will combat slopes
When the mind chooses to harvest
What the heart in frost-nights sowed.
Contrary to contemporary popular belief, not all problems can be solved. There is no shame in turning around, finding your way back to the fork in the road, and choosing again. Who knows, maybe the new path will lead you to somewhere even more exciting and rewarding than your original choice of direction would have.
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?
Sometimes, happiness is walking down
A country road you have walked
A million times before,
Meeting yourself halfway home,
But finding yourself changed,
Not due to the ravishing of time,
But because of an altered heart
A’light with a life well worn.
The fullness of life
Is like the vast ocean’s depth;
Unexplored and wistful,
Like our idea of a god turning
The hands of time and
Offering a perception of life
That we reach for,
But never fully
