Faith

~~November 16, 2015~~ 

MUST NOT LOSE FAITH

Paris the 13th

Tears, my tears fall to wine
As I can not comprehend this horrendous crime
Men filled with such spiteful hate
Islamic teachings seal their fate
Kill and slaughter love and smiles
How I pray tell does this bring about
Any compassion of heart, have they no guile?

I have walked along those Parisian streets
Filled with history and diversity, such a feat
Hand in hand, people from so many lands
Dressed in darkness, blacks and grays
The massacre dancing in premonitions sway
Crusaders never win, for love will take its stand

Hundreds taken from Jesus hands
For nothing more than celebrating their great lands
Food and drink and lovers smiles
Stolen this night by hateful bile
We shall rise again, defend and stand

Our blood may flow in the river seine
However in the end its you, who is insane
We shall defend our liberty
Even if we hang evil from the tree

Père Lachaise has brought me tears
Such history over all the years
Yet here I am faced to visit once again

Paying respect to those dying in vain
My heart is fraught, with you till eternity

Liberté, égalité, fraternité

Notes: Pere Lachaise is a famous cemetery in Paris
Liberté, égalité, fraternité is the motto of France

Thoughts for today, #286 .… “Where does it hurt? Everywhere …. “


Atlas2

~~November 16, 2015~~ 

EVERYWHERE

“Later that night
I held an atlas in my lap
ran my fingers across the whole world
and whispered
where does it hurt?

It answered
everywhere
everywhere
everywhere.”

IOTD …. Images of the day, #388 …. “The Love of Reading”!!

THE LOVE OF READING

“I have sometimes dreamt … that when the Day of Judgment dawns and the great conquerors and lawyers and statesmen come to receive their rewards — their crowns, their laurels, their names carved indelibly upon imperishable marble — the Almighty will turn to Peter and will say, not without a certain envy when He sees us coming with our books under our arms:

“Look, these need no reward.

We have nothing to give them here.

They have loved reading.”

~IN HER OWN WORDS~

IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”

To start the day …. “Omar Akram – Never Let Go”!!


OA1

~~November 16, 2015~~ 

HOPEFUL

Hopeful, hopeful,
That’s the feeling I get when I hear her name.
Not knowing when;
Or why she has chosen me.
But knowing in my heart that I will never let her down.
Condescending;
Of all these ideas I have of her.
My walk with her has been one I’ll never forget;
I will not
Loose her.
In all the chaos in this world,
She is the one I seek  for guidance
Please, never let me go.
Forever with her,
I am,
Hopeful!

The last few days have been harrowing and mind-boggling. The security of what we know as our life, our world and our safety has been shaken to the core.

We frequently think:

“It won’t happen to me, it won’t happen here, it won’t happen to us.”

The only thing that we know for sure is that life, as we know it, can change in a flash.

Here’s a balm, a beautiful song to transport us to a warm, beautiful place …. if only for a moment.

Something to think about …. “The Absence …. “!!


Absence

~~November 13, 2015~~ 

THE ABSENCE

There’s this cold.
A feeling.
It’s a cold that isn’t obvious, but very much present.
The kind that makes your whole body shake.
The cold feeling of being unloved by that one person, which has the power to shake your entire being.

Thoughts for today, #285 .… “Powerless Without your Reaction”!!


Powerless

~~November 13, 2015~~ 

NO REACTION

Have you ever seen human snakes?
Similar to cobra type who bite
But not of their own
Until they are troubled or attacked with stone

Some are poisonous
And some are less venomous
Some are simple type and not harmful
We should allow them to stay peaceful

Human nature can be compared
With snakes and not dared
They react with deadly breathe
That can almost offer death

Some people instantly react
Come out with force to act
Some react slowly
But their action is deadly

Some people show no reaction
But from back deliver like weapon
That may cause blow but remain unknown
Beware of such people around and known.

Thoughts for today, #284 .… “My Awesome Bubble … “!!


Bubble

~~November 12, 2015~~ 

MY AWESOME BUBBLE

Bubbles
Flimsy treasures of instant delight
tickling your senses in fanciful flight.
Transparent bubbles so airy and bright
reflecting glitter of sparkling light.

Glassy orbs that make children giggle
as they wiggle, wobble, and jiggle.
Sunlit shells encapsulate the air
creating crystalline balls beyond compare.

Lightly popping with a ticklish splat
while spraying a mist as if sunlight spat.
Floating flotilla of magic spheres
playfully summoning laughter’s tears.

IOTD …. Images of the day, #384 …. “Simply Amazing: Baby Squirrel”!!


BabySquirrelBS

~~November 11, 2015~~ 

SIMPLY AMAZING 

“The Squirrel”

Whisky, frisky,
Hippity hop;
Up he goes
To the tree top!

Whirly, twirly,
Round and round,
Down he scampers
To the ground.

Furly, curly
What a tail!
Tall as a feather
Broad as a sail!

Where’s his supper?
In the shell,
Snappity, crackity,
Out it fell.

Thoughts for today, #282 .… “Perception Makes the Difference …. “!!


Perception

~~November 20, 2015~~ 

TRANSFORMING NEGATIVE INTO POSITIVE

“There is a basic law that like attracts like.

Negative thinking definitely attracts negative results. Conversely, if a person habitually thinks optimistically and hopefully, his positive thinking sets in motion creative forces – and success instead of eluding him flows toward him.”

~Norman Vincent Peale~
