How can I put into words a Feeling?
I’ve been quiet for a few days as I’ve been busy with various tasks… A knitting project half done, playing and cooking with my two year old granddaughter and catching up with course work for qualifications for work.
Besides going to work, I’ve been walking and in the garden along with just finding those quiet times to be at peace with myself..
I’ve been wanting to write a new post for a couple of days but you know how it is sometimes, you know you have a thousand things you would like to share and say, and yet nothing comes?.. Well today was like that until a series of Synchronicities were set in motion..
- I was searching among my poems to send one to my friend Cat Forsley’s who has a wonderful site, when I came across a half finished poem.. with Cat’s encouragement I sat and finished it within 10 mins of her suggestion I do so… in the next 10 minutes I logged into another post which led to synchronicity 2.
- While browsing the WP sites my friend Vision Keeper blogged a new post called “ Its been a Long Road “ which spoke about finding our inner joy and loving ourselves and being within that balance her words hit home as she said in answer to my response.
“It was really an ah ha moment for me when I finally realized how critical both Joy and Self Love were to the process of creating!!! It is why we have not been able to get further along on our road to freedom. The whole shebang begins with self love and if you don’t have it you don’t have joy and if you don’t have both you don’t create! Simple as that. Creation requires both to occur. We are getting it, we are putting it together and we will succeed very soon! Have a super weekend and be at peace within friend”
- Synchronicity 3 was when I logged onto another wonderful post of Eddie Two Hawks his post Clear Thinking .. as this confirmed my thoughts again …
So thank you to Cat, VK, and Eddie for your own inspiring posts which nudge me along to post the completed poem..
Peace is the Place I dwell
Peace it the place I dwell..
Up in the mountains… casting a spell
Of tranquil bliss, where Eagles soar
Away from man’s roar..
Peace is the heart of natures Bliss
A rivers tears and dewdrop kiss
A leaf that floats across the sky
The smell of Earth, I ask her why
I feel her lonely heartbeat score…
I close my eyes……I feel Peace.. And More…
Peace is the quiet breath in early morn
When one opens your eyes to early dawn
When shadows no longer hold the dark
But when Peace is filled in Dawns red Heart..
Listen to the song of early light
When birds rise bringing their delight
Into a Day they worry not how to survive
But they Sing their joy as on wings they dive
Peace is the closed eyelids of a babies sleep
A mother’s love in whose arms she keeps
them tight and safe within slumbered dreams
I close my eyes…. I feel Peace … And More….
Peace is the sweep of artists brush
As colours create the mountain hush
As clouds roll by on heavens sky
Peace is the shooting star that falls from high
But the best of these is as you close your eyes
As you hear the silence of your inward sighs
Listen now to the Peace within
as your mind is emptied of cutter and din
For I close my eyes ….
I feel Peace….
