It Keeps Getting Brighter

Watching the horizon.

Faint light touches the edges of the world.

Casting out the sparkling stars

for one great star to birth.

It rises in a quiet knowing.

Turning different shades.

Bursts of color dance around

until it reaches a place

on the horizon where it’s golden orb is seen.

Lighting up another day.

Awaken us from dreams.

Forever Watching.

The sun tucked away

in glorious rose, violet, blues and greys.

It spoke of promises yet to be made.

As it drifted away. Sleep would come

to some. In the morning we would wake

to find the sun creeping up in golden shades.

Wake we must. Today we trust in what our world will create.

Washing us from sleep filled haze to a brighter, golden day.

New Beginnings All Around

Here for the offering. Here for the joy.

A new beginning. A brand new way to see the world. Enjoy!

Let it flow over you. Bring forth the light.

There is no judgement now. No bickering. No strife.

Only love. Compassion. Understanding. That is it.

Come on over to this beautiful world where God asks us to sit

with him. Take his hand. Offer up a prayer.

Ask for what you truly need. You’ll find your answer there.

Not Giving Up.

Those days when the covers
Slip over the head.
Those days when the darkness
Holds fast in the bed.
Those days have ended.
There is something new today.
A gift to be given.
Because showing up was the way.
Muddling through.
Pushing hard.
Screaming until empty.
Pouring out the heart.
Those days are tucked away.
Sleeping quietly.
Whispering.
Go now, explore what life brings.
Open to the possibilities.
Open the heart even more.
Free to fly now.
Choose to soar.
For not giving up
A greater reward.
Seeing life brand new
In this beautiful world.
