We all start as children’s books

Simple, basic principles to live by

Bright colors and constant movement

Curiosity driving actions

As age progresses

Ideas develop

Colors mix for more options than just red, yellow and blue

Curiosity tempered a bit with caution

Soon, we turn and look behind us

Seeing the colors collide with patterns

Our own thoughts and feelings merging with the world around us

Curiosity assaulted by media of every variety

Choose your path wisely

One try is all we are blessed with

Traces of Me…

Image result for shadows

Shadows of me

Traces really

Nothing substantial

Just a whisper on the wind

Feelings of how I used to be and feel

Nothing concrete anymore

No sense of charging ahead into adventure

Just day to day survival

Start at A

Charge forward to B

C comes next

D is not far behind

The energy begins to fade on the way to E

Soon the day fades into F

Keep going forward to G

Hoping H is not far behind

Intently looking to move quickly through I

J, K, L leap right past in the rush of mid afternoon

Pushing quickly through M, N, O, P

O through X is a mystery that melts into the nightly routine

Y is so late in the days journey

To Z, sometimes it seems it never gets asked much less answered.

Soon, the Trace of the day settles

Into the dark of night

You know you made it through

How? you are not sure

You simply know that the journey starts in the morning

Again with A until

Z makes it’s appearance

Today’s Challenge: Enjoy all the little moments that make you feel love, that make you laugh because above all else the trace of that joy and happiness should be what you and your loved ones remember for the day.

Close your eyes and imagine…

No picture needed

Bring your own to mind…

Fluffiest of pillows waiting

Puffiest of clouds floating

Richest chocolate melting

Softest silk gliding

Deep green grass pressing through toes

Silkiest of petals caressing

Lush springs seasonal

Eternal in memories

close your eyes

think of the word lush

what memory comes to mind

what feelings spring forth

enjoy it for the moment

pull it out as needed

on the run

a woman on the run

no where to go

no one to ask

Fear trapped her to her overweight past

the game of What-If

pinning her in place

unable to move

to Scared to decide

to Worried about if the decision is right

How to break FREE?

She does not know

But soon it must happen

so she can GROW
