Time is a valuable thing that we often waste on unimportant things. Then we look at our family, our friends and think how much they made this life bearable. And how hard it will be once they're gone. So we should really appreciate them more, even when we don't exactly see eye to eye.
We are all ridden with fears at some time or the other in our life. It may be a fear of the unknown or it may be an irrational phobia. Fear is a most repressive feeling and does not let us grow. These fears can be addressed by connecting to our shadow self. We can help children learn about shadows.
Two inspirational and contrasting poems, one showing the transformative power of prayer (Salat), and the other the joy of selflessness, of service ... of giving, from both humans and the universe
The poem, 'My Shadow Walks Beside Me' was inspired by a weekly word prompt "Shadows" provided by Brenda Arledge.
"Forgiveness Brings Hope" is a poem that shows when we forgive others we find an inner peace. We don't forget, but we bury the sadness in the far corner of our minds, offering them a chance to soar like an eagle. It is within this forgiveness that we find a glimmer of hope for ourselves.
A Sunday Offering of true beauty, my friends --the one that touches the soul ... the psychic Heart. All adorned in eloquent words for you.

Do you ever hear that little voice whispering that you should've been more blunt and cut the nice act? Especially when people really didn't deserve you being nice while they're being rude, thinking you don't have it in you to tell them off? Well, that's what I mean by "inner witch". The meaner you.
So, another silly and short poem. This is something I had written a few months ago and since my brain cells took a vacation without notifying me (the traitors, all of them!), I decided to post it. Bear with me please.
Forever I will be grateful, For the greatness of harshness, The harshness full of great love, The love that pulled me back, Back from my up scaled spirits, Bringing me down to mother earth, And pushing me forward, Pushing me to spring back to life, Pushing me to race fully forward, With all my for
My response to week 19.
Poem: Response to "Word Prompts Help Creativity~Week 22 (shadow): "Shadow Friend"; "His Shadow"; "Only the Shadow Knows" is my response to this word prompt. I have included 3 poems that talk about friendship, God's shadow, & missing the shadow of a loved one. I hope you like them.
This was inspired by Brenda Arledge's "Word Prompts Help Creativity / Week 22". Word prompt- "Shadow". Shadows can hide, our own shadow follows us loyally, and in some cases, or at least in some interpretations, shadows can even protect. This time, it's about hiding in order to protect.
This poem is a product of my early morning environment: cup of coffee in hand, TV playing the Olympics opening ceremony, dog asking for my participation in her morning routine, a lifetime of experiences to draw from, ponder, put to paper. It's about everything and it's about nothing at all.
