Chasing away Shadows ~ Is Light

Photobucket

Chasing Away Shadows

Following my sign, along the road

Learning how to shed my load.

I skip with joy through trees of gold

The Sun I’m chasing as my future unfolds

 

Angels close their eyes and breathe

As at last I discover that part in me

The past is gone, the future is Now

At last I’m living, I’m learning how

 

To sing with bird song at morning rise

To look in the mirror, what a surprise

I like what I see for the very first time

And My Angel is with me, giving me a sign.

 

His feathers of Love he showers on me

Filling my heart, making me see

That Life on Earth is all about Love

Holding me close hand in glove

 

Knowing you’ll always be beside me

Between us I know we’ll always be

Perfect words with perfect tunes

Soaring Hearts with mended wounds

 

Calling me from afar

Joining my heart to the heart of a Star

You whisper your Song of us long ago

It melts my heart like the falling snow

 

So Angel of mine, My Spirit Moon

I come to you, you’ll hold me soon

Mirrors in the Sun we brightly shine

Together, forever, for all time.

~The Road to Happiness comes through

Discovery of Oneself.~

xx  Sue Dreamwalker xx

I am taking some time out this week to Paint on canvas..

I need some quiet time to restore my balance.

So if I am quite you will know what I am about..

but you never know, I may drop by your door to say hello…

This poem I wrote some time ago now,  I chose it as its words resonated with how I have been feeling..  

When we do take time out to truly discover who we are,

we may all of us be surprised at what is reflected back at us in the Mirror 🙂  

Much Love to you All.. 

~Sue~

    Wonderful rhymes Sue … fills me with light, just what I need as I head across the mountains and waters to my old home so I too will be off the grid for a while but preprogrammed just a few to fill the space while I sort out the future adventure that beckons. Have a good painting experience Sue and enjoy. Love, David

    Fantastic poem, and I couldn’t agree with you more: we need light and we need to multiply it. There are only two ways: to be on the side of light or to be on the side of darkness. I wish you all the best with your painting and taking yourself back to balance!

Enjoy your time to unwind with your canvas and paints, to create something out of nothing is such a great gift you have. Cheers to a new week.

      Dear Randall, thank you most kindly my friend.. Most of my poetry is written in the middle of the night as I wake inspired to put pen to paper. 🙂 I have enjoyed my time away from WP and although my plans to paint did not turn out as I hoped, my time has been productive both in the physical and the spiritual 🙂 I am so pleased my poem resonated with you and that you enjoyed.. I so thank you for the compliments given.. And I appreciate that you left me such encouragement..
      Love and Blessings for a Peaceful weekend..

    So happy to hear you are taking time off to smell those roses my friend. I hope you have a wonderful rest and create beautiful pictures much like your beautiful poems. Thanks for sharing them. We need to rest up for what lies ahead, not just the probable chaos of one sort or another coming, but for the insanity of these next four weeks of out of control spending on STUFF all in the name of Christmas. Yeah right. They should refer to it as Corporatmas instead 🙂 Be well and hugs and love to you….VK ❤

    Hi Sue,

    What a great balancing message during this time of the year! I know many of us are together to be with loved ones here in the States, and that can be trying for some families.

    I am in the midst of this term’s finals, and truly struggling to pay attention to the task at hand. I feel I have been diligent all trimester long, and it’s that final push ~ with only a short, short break to follow before another larger, bigger push, and even more tests and 2-day-long testing to follow. Taking time out is fast-becoming a plan. It’s not all stress. Gosh, I love this time of the year, and I’m having so much fun in challenge of it all, knowing that it’s up to me, all of it ~ and in Spirit. I’m clearing away more space for meditation ~ all the more necessary!

    Much love to you, Happy painting!
    Ka

Yes I too have been getting back to some basics within my meditation practices.. and feeling refreshed by doing so.. The painting, well, didn’t happen as planned that is another story.. But I needed time out for me, which I have benefited from .. Sending you much love your way.. Enjoy your Weekend Break.. with Love sent your way.. Hugs Sue xx

        Hi Sue, one more term yet – and two more finals this term, then my break 🙂 I’m learning to find new ways to take a break in the middle of it. The energies/transits are intense right now, and for me my personal planets are very involved, too. We do our best! Each time around the cycle it gets a little bit more manageable (at least in my current transits).

        I treasure our connection here on WP, and that we can hold space for one another and allow them each other his or her own time-outs for whatever reason and because it’s natural and refreshing. Much love, thank you for you, Ka

        Looking forward to reading this new poem you posted by your friend.

    Such a poem and sublime thoughts,dearest friend Sue!”
    ~The Road to Happiness comes through Discovery of Oneself.~ you said,and I add that when this happens,you can understand people better,you can interpret their thoughts and their attitudes and respect them.If ourself remains unknown to ourself,we will never attain completion,we will never reach up to the uppermost scale where our soul meets the divine … And,last but not least,we will never discover our dormant potential to do things that we cannot imagine even in our dreams.Your work is as incentive as ever!Thank you my dearest friend!Keep putting the beautiful and bright colours of your soul on your paintings!Sending you so much love and peace 🙂 ❤ Doda xxx

    Beautiful poem Sue spiritually meaningful. The shadows symbolise darkness or our Ignorance whereas the light symbolises the Divine Light (we call it Gyan in Hindi). Once the candle is lighted the darkness dissapeas.

    Many of us also need to make time for silence and quietitude. Peace and joy.
