I wish

WORTH — Word of the Day Challenge

I wish every child would grow knowing a heart full of love

I wish all animals on land and sea would know kindness

I wish trees, forests and oceans were left alone to thrive

to naturally provide

I wish humanity would value and love every growing organism on our earth

See, hear, feel what we have

Please appreciate it’s worth

Save our world

A New Beginning

A new day begins

Surrounded by clear black night

The coolness of the air

Wrapping us together

In a new love affair

Awaiting the new dawns glimpses

Through the darkness of the skies

The first light colors a secret to

only our eyes

Hues of grey, burgundy then red

Peaking through in the newness of

The morning

Whispering welcome

to the new day ahead

An artists palette is the view

Shades of bright yellow,

Then orange, pinks

and blue

The softness of the morning born

Like a piece of art

The sunrise, thy sky adorn

Another new day begins

Tucked together under

each other’s wings

A new love

A new beginning

The crush

The crush

Eyes meet

My cheeks sting as I blush

My heart races, I tremble

I am smitten, I have a crush

Am I a fool

To allow my body over sensibility

to make rule

The choice is no longer mine

My senses alive with thoughts

Body’s entwined so divine

Your name lingers on my lips

Like a secret confession

My eyes follow your every move

My sweetest obsession

Waiting in fervent anticipation

To respond, to accept, to return

My passionate infatuation

Natures Kiss

The soft breeze sweeps a wisp of hair across her forehead

Sadness swallowing her

Her heart remembering

What is gone, how they were

The gentle breeze kissing her face

Her thoughts

Like an old time movie

Flashing moments in time

Allowing, letting the truth that be

Breathing in warm air

Filling her lungs with hope

Letting go

Allowing herself to calmly cope

Inhale exhale

She weeps for the things she knows now

She will learn, accept and glide forward

Nature places a loving kiss upon her furrowed brow

The undulating path that you now wend

Find answers and enlightenment

&

Acceptance of change my dear friend

Something beautiful awaits ❤️

What will tomorrow bring?

On a cliff I sit looking over treetops

The oceans waves and white crests

Jumping over each other

Crashing into one another

Like kids on dodgem cars

The trees trembling and shaking as the wind rushes through the bending branches

Threatening to break the weaker ones

I close my eyes

Listening

Viewing the world through my ears

Wind on the face

Cool

Gently pushing me backwards

I smile as I mindfully say

I’m staying

The roar in my ears is soft but evident

What else do my ears hear

The ocean

My eyes witnessed the game at play

as the waves leapt over

and into each other

Now my ears hear

No longer do I think of kids at play

In their dodgem cars

I hear nature

Playing a game

A perfect game

Rustling leaves

as the winds says hello

Leaves fall

Birds are chirping and shouting to their mates

Come share my branch

My ears and touch are sensing

Click click click

Bushes rustle with movement

My mind imagines a small furry animal

Making shelter from the wind

Footsteps walk the path

somewhere behind me

the panting of a dog,

it’s puff telling me it’s happy on his walk with his master

They do not interrupt my moment

I turn my face towards the sky

Through my closed eyes I see

A brightness

Is it the sun?

I feel it radiating infinite happiness into my mind, my heart and my soul.

Healing

I am in my happy place

Do I have to return?

Voices disconnect my moment, they are soft, then getting louder as they near me.

They moved nearer to the lady sitting on the bench

Shining with love and happiness at her moment on the sun

Did they see the light

It is beaming around me

In that split second it is gone

Their are so many more unique and beautiful moments awaiting me every day

What will tomorrow bring

I cannot wait
