The Treasure Hunt

Life is a treasure hunt…

There are treasures
on the path,
on the journey…

You know there are some you
have found,
some you have left behind…

You know there are those yet to
discover…

You need them.

You crave them.

You search,

you dream,

You have a space…

a hollow,

Where it will fit just right..

But you never truly know exactly what you’re looking for•••

Until you see it..

You quench your thirst,

feed your hunger,

But no satisfaction is like
that which comes from
discovering a treasure…

One that completes life’s puzzle..

One that lights
an ember within you..

Casting magic and light

amongst all

~~who surround u~~

You Are With Me

Having known you~
Joy and tranquility
Are forever with me
I am without you
But you are with me

There isn’t another just like you
I haven’t found one even close
Like my favourite apples
When there are none
I leave without
Cuz I’d rather have none
Than one not quite right

Well, without you
I wander around …and I’m without.
I’m without you.
Right now in this moment you aren’t with me.
But your beautiful face,
Your chuckling, bubbling laughter,
Your wit,
Your warmth and accepting spirit that creates joy and tranquility,
Well that is with me.

Having known you~
Joy and tranquility
Are forever with me
I am without you
But you are with me

Chasing Shadows

The whole time I was waiting for you to learn your lesson about joy,
I wasn’t learning my own about
Letting go.
You kept yourself in darkness and gloom while I chased after your spirit.
Believing I could use my light to create yours.
But all I did was exhaust myself
In your storm of shadows.
You would glance back now and then,
I would take it as a sign
To keep trying.
But you were only hoping I had
Realized not to chase a shadow,
Not to try to change another,
But to stop in my own path,
And shine.

Thank you…

you are the fresh air
playing in the flowers
that rise wildly through a darkened earth

When I turn from the sun, shoulders slumped
I breathe you in
And find strength for one more step

That step leads me to butterflies, square dancing through an abundant garden

It pulls me through shadows left behind from a devoted storm

I stop in awe…

Every rainbow has met as one~ into a beam of endless colour

exactly where I once felt cold and alone…worried and scared

now only light…

only colour…

only new wishes for new days…

Sweet hope …

I watch my thoughts that have held me down, heavy with fear,

earn their wings,

and soar to the sun,

and as they leave me

I say …

thank you~
