sometimes

i want to smile and say i'm great couldn't be better----i believe the healing power, i believe the awesome wonders----

i want to go and go and not get tired----i understand the fleeting moments--i care about the rose not smelled--

sometimes i flinch when i realize the passing of time and faces and things---and shutter to know that the images fade and life's changes can sometimes bring confusion

i look at the sun as it streams through my curtains and wonder why i don't see it through the clouds, it's still there

i wish i could take in the brightness and hold it there, to comfort me in the not so illuminated ones---

or be like a bouncy cloud that dips and reforms-----

i stretch and i hold out my finger tips and something pushes back and i know that all is well-

  1. Thoughtful words, Lynn. The passing of time rolls on, just remember, try not to have too many regrets.

    Speaking of illumination, we don't have much here today in Vancouver. Grey day, with high possibility of wetness.

  2. Very nicely said. The only thing permanent is change. In accepting change, we live. It is in trying to hold on, to keep, to control, like holding on to one's breath or holding water in your hands, that we live outside the present (the only time we have) and suffer the consequences of disappointment.

  3. oh lovely - I get your message perfectly. There's so much still to do and as time goes on it gets harder to do it all. Just hang on to what you love best and don't lose it!

  7. I like your words, Lynn. I like how you ended it that all was well, I was wondering if you were writing about a particular time or emotion (or even perhaps this time and this emotion). nicely done!

  10. Beautifully written. I also have moments like that when something brings my life to a screeching halt. Of course, it's in exactly those times that I those wishes you mentioned can come true. :-)

  12. My favorite part is "i stretch and i hold out my finger tips and something pushes back and i know that all is well-". That comforting push back - oh, how precious when we have that reassurance!
