thoughts from my mind to yours


15 Comments

Home

You travel the world

with your thoughts…

from sunny Spain

to cloudy Seattle

to that barely lit hut

in the remote outskirts of nowhere

you become one

with the serene lake

the gentle breeze

you become one

with the volcano

waiting to erupt

the fire burning

through the mountains

you become one

You travel the world

with your thoughts…

you even travel

to those abstract, obscure places

that are hard to find

in the depths of your mind

you travel the universe

and then come back

to gently nestle

in the small comforts

you cherish

at home.

Thank you…

Sometimes,

as we race against time

figuring out

what is yours and what is mine

we fall behind

on noticing,

what matters…

 

We forget to feel…

the fresh morning breeze

that puts our heart, at ease

forget to rest our eyes

on the clear blue skies,

forget that in this world

we all move homeward,

toward our hearts,

together…

 

Sometimes,

as we race against time

figuring out

what is yours and what is mine

we fall behind

on noticing,

what matters…

we forget to say,

Thank you!

Facing Sunshine

Sometimes,

I fall deep,

into the abyss,

of my shadow,

larger than life,

it engulfs me,

and I forget…

all I have to do,

is turn around,

and face,

the sunshine.

My Home In the Stars

please click on original 🙂 Thank you

forgottenmeadows

I will carry my home with me,

in the stars I see every night…

 

For they hold the stories,

my grandma told me,

the walks on the beach,

with the family,

and the moment,

when my heart,

first took flight.

 

I will carry my home with me,

in the stars I see every night…

 

For when I lose sight,

of where I am,

they comfort me,

like they comforted my ancestors,

eons before I was born,

guiding them with light.

 

I will carry my home with me,

in the stars I see every night…

 

For their infinite beauty,

keeps me grounded,

no matter how high I fly,

reminding me who I am,

and where I come from,

as I sail across the sky.

 

I will carry my home with me,

in the stars I see every night.

Sail

The cluster of hope,

crystallized in your eyes,

more serene than the sunrise,

is my sail…

in the dark storms of long nights.
