#ThoughtfulThursday: Intertwined

We are the light that needs no lifting,
as long as our flames burn we are interwoven.
A whisper within the heart is sufficient,
to perpetuate the wave that we began together,
beyond the fabric of the time we yet rest upon

#MondayThoughts: I Believe

Photo by Lydia Bond from Pexels

I believe there is a purpose why we are here

And through living out our purpose we bring something special to this life

Some people go through life not even being aware they have a purpose

I believe we all can and do make an impact

With our words, with our actions, with our perspectives and attitudes

I believe in doing our best to do things the right way even though it might be the hardest way

I believe that as long as I am breathing I can move forward

I believe that when you give up on you, life is being denied of your purpose

Regardless of race, color, culture, gender or creed

We all have a purpose for being here

I believe in my purpose and I believe

That if you are not doing so, you need to start believing in you

I believe in the light

I believe in love

I believe they combine to be a formidable force within you

You have a purpose that only you can live out

Believe in You

Wings of Life

Angel of Death far off in the distance

I cannot tell if it is serious or grinning

Does death have a sense of humor?

Angel of Life standing by my side

Wings of life embrace me

Perhaps, still, it is not my time

I am far from perfect

I am far from imperfect

Somewhere in between I am a human being

Distant star, put your light in my hands

Walk with me through the night

And I will return your light in the morning

The world changes its appearance constantly

I do not try to adapt but to live authentically

Angel of Life, your wings are comforting

Angel of Death keeps it distance

Just observing…..

#RomanticTuesday: My Winter Rose

Roses do not bloom hurriedly; for beauty, like any masterpiece, takes time to blossom.

-Matshona Dhliwayo

My winter rose

Your fragrance is hope throughout all seasons

To witness your petals unfold as you grow into your own

This is a blessing to me

There is no aim to suffocate or mold you

Only provide fresh air to breathe

Glistening with light

Radiant from love

This is what I love to witness

My winter rose

Always in bloom

In every season you are loved

Just as You are

#MondayThoughts: Dare To Be

We have to dare to be ourselves, however frightening or strange that self may prove to be.

It is your uniqueness that adds light to this world. There is a great power in being yourself. When you don’t fall Into a category or cannot be labeled, then you are considered offbeat or strange. Better to be authentic than be a run of the mill, right off the assembly line, stereotyped copy of who society believes you should be.

Dare to be you and not allow your uniqueness to be hidden from the world. Life is in need of light and your light carries its own power. Just what the world needs.

Stay inspired and keep rising.

#RomanticTuesday: Brilliant

There are moments when love’s light is so brilliant

It magnifies what is in the heart

So much more than a feeling

Closer to a divine energy

I love the whole of you

I miss the whole of you

You bring bliss in all seasons

Illuminating my days like a star upon a Christmas tree

I embrace your soul as gentle as can be

To feel the vibrations of your heart speaking

Echoing the sentiments of my every heartbeat

We are engulfed by a very much alive love

Immersing ourselves in the new life born of this love

As its light shines so brilliantly in and through us

I embrace the whole of you
