Sweet songs of spring

the cardinal outside my window

screams sweet songs of spring

the sound calming my soul

sunlight in my face

nature on my mind

branches tangled in the woods

the sweet songs of spring lingering in my senses

my eyes, my mind, my soul

cut forsythia on the table

sweet yellow color of spring

bringing me peace

serenity, calmness, love

the cardinal in my window

screams sweet songs of spring

renewal has come

this moment so meaningful….so simple

and so so so sweet….

Breathing

I breathe deeply, that salt water air

makes me feel whole again

my hands touch the water

the water to my face,

my lips, my mind

that salt water air rushes to me

makes me feel whole again

my feet touch the sand,

the sand to my toes

my ankles, my mind

makes me feel whole again

I breathe deeply, that salt water air

and never feel down again

There is nothing like seeing the days grow longer.  The air is still cool yet the daffodils and forsythia are blooming.  The yellow lights up the space around, bringing a joyful color to the lingering winter that is still with us.  Seeing the first buds sprouting green, leaves me with a sense of anticipation.  Those first small leaves, tiny, delicate, the most amazing green ever.  I anticipate warmth.  I anticipate sunnier days, longer days.  The sun has a sweet effect on me, always has…always will.  The sun warms me.  You know, I always thought  I had that seasonal affective disorder as I always feel perfect when the days are longest.  It is as if nothing can come my way, no worries, no problems.  I can conquer anything, do anything, be anything.  That is the sweet effect of the days getting longer, minute by minute, day by day….

It is interesting to think of how days can affect us as humans, just as they affect animals and plants.  We are all in this thing together, this cycle of life, of seasons.  A grand metaphor for living.  A way to simplify the complex. 
You see sometimes in life if you just simplify, you can open your eyes to acceptance, to the true meaning of life.  This is how I get through difficult times.  It is when I break down the difficult thoughts, break them down into something so simple.  Like the beauty of a spring flower, the beauty of those first green leaves of spring.  My connection to nature has truly helped me become the person I am.   I can appreciate nature as an integral part of my life, my being, my soul.  It helps me deal.  It gives me reason.   And it always has this sweet effect….

A Love Dream

A love dream…

 

I dream of love swimming in the ocean

Twisting round my heart, my head

The waves crashing

Blue is my heart

Cloudy is my head

 

I dream of love walking in the forest

Twisting round my heart, my head

The branches cracking

Green is my heart

Foggy is my head

 

I dream of love dancing on the sand

Swirling round my heart, my head

The particles flying

Warm is my heart

Clear is my head….

Seeing Clearly

Come, come to my house

I will always let you enter

We must bring our world together

 

Enter my secret garden of beauty

Look upon the trees

We lie within their branches

And sit between their leaves

 

We are all born from the womb

I see you inside of me

My eyes have opened

Open yours and you may see

 

Walk with me as I will walk with you

No matter what your color

Wear my shoes

Run with me as I will run with you

No matter what your color

Look upon each other

We are sisters

We are brothers

 

Open up and you will see

What is inside of you

Lies right inside of me
