Today

 

today1

Walk barefoot and feel the grass under your feet

Let every blade caress you, it will share a story in delicate brush

Pause for just one moment, close your eyes

Inhale deeply, let the air sing its beautiful song

Look in someone’s eyes and truly see them, let yourself feel their soul

Human connection is our invitation to dance, take my hand and I’ll show you how to move in flow

Stop time by standing still, let just one moment be and see the magic you will find

Be curious, wander as you wish, I assure you the greatest treasures are always found in an open mind

Today

No different from any other

Simply our good fortune to discover

Beauty and love in our most genuine ways

My Place

 

quietSitting on my place beside the ocean

Watching the ripples of sunlight dance across her waves

The only busy of life, sandpipers and gulls preparing for their day

Salt air pouring deeply in to my lungs

Gifted endless inhale, made for one

Nature whispers, expand and contract in your gentle way

Washing serenity over me with her lapping waves

The scent of cedars that surround me so tall and strong

Collective aged wisdom reminding me of where I belong

Speaking as the sun starts to rise

Quiet your mind, relax your weary eyes

Sit with your spirit and let your heart be

For anything else

I wouldn’t be me
