A Time to Grow!

Standard

Ronovan does it again and it’s growing time!

Time…

A wonder how time

Seems to stand still and fly too

When new sprouts show up

Personal growth

Letting go

Maturity says

Have, Hold, Love, Free, Let it go

Space allows for spread

#WQWWC – Beauty

Standard

Last week, Colleen put up a challenge tagged Beauty and like you know, she brings out the fresh lyrics in me.

Whether in the eye of the Beholder

Or vested in the thing itself, I see Beauty

Sometimes revealed and loud, undeniable

Hidden, calm and not proud, not definable

It’s in the morning unfolding between dusk and dawn

Radiating from the eyes, dancing to the lips in smiles

A giggle and it spreads its arms in affection, that’s Beauty!

It’s the stolen kiss between spouses in a crowd

Lost in a world with no walls, stares or frowns

Beauty in the dark, as in the Light

Glowing, refusing to be bound by limitations

Allowing the crack add spice to smoothness

I could go on and on, but no need to…

When you have seeing eyes and believing hearts…

There will always be Beauty!

“There is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in.”  Leonard Cohen, Selected Poems, 1956-1968

‘Pleasantly’ Straight-forward!

Standard

“Mum!!!” King-Earl called out to me as he opened the refrigerator, “I want your Yoghurt in the fridge.”

“Nope!”

“Why?! It’s good to share!” King-Earl insisted

“Nope, I’m not sharing.” I continued with what I was cooking.

“If you don’t share, you are not a Child, no, Adult of God.” (With a look that said “this will make you do it”)

“But I don’t want to share!” I replied, getting frustrated with this conversation.

“Then you are an Adult of something that God defeated” he said disappointingly and walked out of the kitchen.

That alone, stopped me from encouraging any thought to eat that Yoghurt. And yes, King-Earl and sister got to enjoy it at the end of the day.
