* Thoughts like Bubbles

a lovely piece by Val 🙂

Find Your Middle Ground

thoughts like bubbles

When the Bubble Bursts

Active mind seeks answers,

quiet mind embraces silence.

Beneath both, thoughts

float like bubbles.

Iridescence rises for a moment,

then bursts,

leaving nothing in its wake

but open space.

by Danna Faulds from and anthology called Root to Bloom

I love how these words create shining images of bubbles floating. There’s a sense of how delicate they are and how they can so easily burst.

… Yet we give our thoughts so much power.

May your thoughts today float and burst with ease, so that you can experience the spaciousness and stillness in their wake.

Aahhh … now that feels better 😉

NaPoWriMo Day #2

Wonderful poetry by another great poet, Scott from the house of bailey, I follow 🙂

Scott Andrew Bailey - Author

Starlight

By Scott Bailey © 2015

I was born in fire
In the fiercest whitest heart
I was flung in dying throes
Out into the dark

And through the dark I travelled
Over time you cannot dream
You cannot comprehend
The scales of things I’ve seen

The birth of stars from dust
From cold to burning fire
And then to bloated giants
And back to dust again

The start that swirl together
In hordes you will never count
Swallowed into nothing
Never to get out

Bright white young ones burning
Fast and bright and blue
Until they burst with energy
Too bright for me and you

And clouds like angels wings
Or swirling demons eyes
And flighty comets dying
With sparkling icy cries

All this and much much more
I cannot tell you all
Many many of your lives
Would pass before my tale

But now my time is dwindling
Now…

Together No More – NaPoWriMo 2015 – Day 4 (to prompt)

Beautiful Poem by Rob 🙂

The Wayward Warrior

Respect, like water,
Dribbles from the table,
Unable to be contained,
Spreading, falling, fast.

In its free-fall
Each drop contains an element
Of you,
A particle
Once held in esteem,
Once looked upon with awe
And reverence.

Yet now it falls,
Tainted,
Broken,
Alone.

In its endeavour to be part of
It lost its allure,
Heralding secrets,
It divided from the pack
And now it floats alone,
With its brothers,
To the floor.

Water running where there was no bridge,
Tide flowing where there was no sea,
Illusion splintered
Splashed upon the floor.
Together no more.

Veil of Morning – NaPoWriMo

Beautiful poetry that touches the heart, by my friend Morgan 🙂

Booknvolume

Veil
.

Veil of Morning Light,

Shimmering Essence, Gentle and Bright,

Caress my waking Mind with Sighs,

As the Whispering shade of Nighttide flies,

Lingering Traces of Remembered Dreams

Biding their Time as Delicate Hope Gleams.
