Magical surprises

What wonder it is dear friend,

To allow small things to still catch us by surprise?

Like, glad tidings from a far away friend,

Or, a fond memory sparked by a favorite 80’s song’s reprise,

Or, the smell of the first leaves on the trees after the spring thaw,

Suddenly transporting us to fond memories of where we lived before.

What delightful wonders are there for us to experience and see,

If we can keep our hearts soft and willing enough, to be,

pleasantly surprised each day,

by the multitude of magical surprises, we find along the way.

To charm everyone – A poem

Under the streetlight bulbs, where sidewalks meet,

Pedestrians one by one, tiptoe across the street.

Icy days and slalom-like paths will soon be gone –

As crocus bulbs tiptoe upward one by one,

Awaiting their turn, to charm everyone.

Wisdom from my grandma

In each moment, life holds its own sacred promise –

Borrow not from moments of future increase,

Nor, scour moments of paradise best left behind –

Lest today, you spend its precious moments, holding on to the wind.

“…stepping into the awaiting day”

“Out in nature each day starts by being soft, quiet in a sacred sort of way, gentle in the act of stepping into the awaiting day, and seemingly reflective in it all.”― Craig D. Lounsbrough
