Think back When Things Were Simple

Here we all grown up

In a world that is forever changing

Working and trying to make a difference

Loving the things that make us ultimately happy

Spending time around people that connect with our views and philosophy in life

Taking are most difficult times and spinning them around and around

Like yarn on a big wheel

Trying to make sense of the impossible

Filling in the gaps on the unpredictable

Always questioning and wondering with deep curiosity

How do we make it happen?

What will we do next?

Challenging ourselves when ever we get the chance

Realizing we are just one person

Time is in short supply

Relying on old positive vibes

To push us through the really small opening

The window of opportunity

Giving are greatest blessings for all that we have accomplished and received

Finding the love that we have always wanted and needed

Spreading it through the world

Every chance we get

Gypsy Rose Lee I would love to hear more about dream weaving? Can you explain what you do? I like having birds in our yard. We have two bird feeders and also a hummingbird feeder. Birds come and go as they please. They are very beautiful and motivating to me. I watch them and i want to get up and take pictures and see more. Happy days are here again. I hope everyone is healthy and enjoying the beautiful fresh air. Thank you so much for your comments. Talk soon.

Lately, I am doing what is known as dream weaving and always hoping for the very best. Sometimes I succeed and sometimes I have to patiently wait for better things to come round.

Lorna Lamon You have returned with more wonderful thoughts. I take my feelings and throw them out to the wind. I see the way life rips them to shreds and tosses them side to side. When I think I have nothing left. I see something I didn't see before. A butterfly has landed on one frail thought. It's wings spread open. It stays for a while then flies away. That is the beauty of life. Just when you thought you lost everything something new has blossomed out of love. Thank you for reading and sharing. Hope your day is sunny and lovely. It is a day of on again off again rain here. I love the sound of rain. It feels so relaxing. Nature working it's magic once again.

Audrey Hunt Reading your comment brings many thoughts to mind. To see a person from our past who still comes and shares her wonderful thoughts and opinions. Makes me thankful to be alive. I will always be so inspired and grateful. How do we travel years ahead in time and only remember a fraction of what is good for us? Maybe that is the way life is designed to be. Then again maybe we have to look at life differently. Write about it more and explore all our feelings. Dig deeper into our soul. Giving more when our hands are empty but our hearts are full. Finding ways with writing and then carrying those actions on in real life. Thank you for all that you have done in the past. I will try to unlock the secret to the combination. If I only bought a lock with a key I would have found the answer by now. Even if I don't have the answers to life I am blessed to show my happiness along the way. I hope this message finds you in great spirits and filled with happiness.

Mark Tulin It is easy to get focused on today and all the excitement of what is new and different. Then when we are at the end of the day is it really any better than what we had before. Only in thought was it really so wild and crazy. When we were young maybe are old thoughts seemed that way too. Did we ever really get tired of feeling happy? Why is a new way better than the old way that worked for so many years? How do we combine the old with the new? My only answer is opening up our hearts and minds to what we feel and share it with the world. Really the few people in our lives that support us and help us grow. Thank you for all your kindness. May our friendship continue to grow. The world is vast and distant. The people that take their time and spirit to help others are irreplaceable. Thank you so much and may your day be extraordinary.

Lorna Lamon The best words a writer loves to hear. You made me very happy. I try to put my thoughts on paper. Many times they get lost in translation. From my inner brain to the actual physical world ( that used to be pen and paper now on the computer screen.) I will keep struggling to find new ways to make them appear more inviting and captivating. Thank you for taking the time and energy to comment. May your day be just beautiful.

Genna East I constantly have a personal dilemma. I get tired of giving the same old response. Then again, I don't know how to thank people differently. So I read your comment over for a few days. Thinking how do I thank you for reading and sharing something I wrote. With one big virtual hug and a great big smile. My mind gets busy off on the next thought. Then where do the previous thoughts go? In our brain for another day. If we are blessed to have friends and people all over the world we can let those ideas loose. Little at a time they can become something more. They can turn into positive and productive energy that can push and drive us to new heights. To improve who we are as a person. These little writings can turn into little lessons of hope and accomplishment. That maybe I might understand and learn more about life and other people can appreciate too. Thank you for being understanding and patient. This is the best I can do for now. In time other ideas might come to me. I hope we continue to share and become aware of the beauty of life in every moment. Have a great and inspiring day.

This is a beautiful thought provoking poem.

Audrey Hunt from Idyllwild Ca. on June 03, 2019:

I often reflect on my childhood days and how simple the world seemed to be. Time changes everything, but our values usually remain the same. To love, to give and forgive and show gratitude for even the simplest things.

This is my recipe for happiness. Thank you, my friend. This is lovely!

Mark Tulin from Palm Springs, California on June 02, 2019:

Nice reminder in a poem, Dream On. To go back before we got all serious and grown up to the things that made us happy.

Lorna Lamon on June 02, 2019:

This is a lovely poem which really spoke to me.

Genna East from Massachusetts, USA on June 02, 2019:

I really liked this poem. A couple of my favorite lines are...

"Relying on old positive vibes

To push us through the really small opening"

So nicely done. :-)
