Pure imagination

seeps from his mind.

Thoughts and words

flowing overtime.

 

Brilliant writings

in every shape and form.

All meant to bless,

comfort, and warm.

#MidnightMadness – 5/15/2017

questions-1922476_960_720

Thought we were sort of due for another question and answer game tonight.  So…

If you could add one word to the dictionary, what would it be and what would it mean?

 

P.S.  I will choose one of the answers and write a poem about it tomorrow.  So think of a good one!  I can’t wait to see all of your responses.  ~M

#MidnightMadness – 3/12/2017

birthday-1208233_960_720

Who started the tradition of having cake on birthdays?  And what about the candles, do they hold special significance?  Were they originally placed there to ward off evil spirits?  Or have they simply always been there to represent the age of a person and give them the opportunity to make a wish.  ~M

A Soul Mates Purpose – Elizabeth Gilbert

adventure-1807524_960_720

“People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life.

 

A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then leave.

 

A soul mates purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, make you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your life, then introduce you to your spiritual master…”

Ever So…

An ever flowing river

An ever flowing world

Ever flowing time

Ever going people

Forever going on

Forever being

Specks in time

Life with meaning

Going on

Flowing on

Wondering on

They go

Through the path that they have chosen

In the air clear and free

Down and dead in the soil beneath

Where we go

Because of us

Because of them

Because of you

Ever going

Ever flowing

Ever wondering on

The lives of us must live

When they stop

Where they stop

At the end of time

Shall we ever know?

Here we go

On our way

Ever going

Ever flowing

Ever wondering on

In our ways

In the maze

Of the great path of life shall we go

Starting so

Then we stop

Time will halt

The rivers end

The curiosity is at a stand still

And here we are

Where we stand

Is what we have decided

When the world has struck us

When life has flashed before our eyes

Where are we

When

It finally stops

Still…

The world keeps going

Flowing

And wondering

All the same

Such are the specks in time are we

In the never-ending slumber

And when we awake

Will it be in time?

Will we find our way?

Before time has yet engulfed

Yet another helpless life

Such as one and another

Are we

So with our spirits

Still in us

Ever going

Ever flowing

Ever wondering

At the right time

We will finally see the light of day

From the dark gloom of our eclipsed lives

Going forward

Flowing down the river of life

Never going back

And wandering

Into the great beyond

In hopes our wondering heart

Will never cease

In the heavens above us

Or the depths below

Shall we be ever going

Forever…
