Ever So Gently

Sometimes we get lost in our thoughts…
losing focus of stars shimmering above us,
the sky turning heavenly blue for our pleasure,
raindrops falling for our essential cleansing.
We tumble too deeply into the frontal lobe
allowing negative thoughts to awaken,
permitting them to throw a tantrum.

So we must remember the wind will carry
worries and doubts across rivers and oceans,
majestic trees will sway with joy, sheltering
from shadows, and light will continue to shine,
even if only a slight glimmer peeks through.
Its glow will grow ever so gently into a bright
beacon of hope rising with the golden sun
bringing the most beautiful clarity to our vision.

    1. Thanks so much for your beautiful comment, Marina. It made my day. 🙂 It’s so easy to get lost in those thoughts. I assumed I wasn’t alone and that maybe others could use a little hope too. Hope the fires are dying out. Stay safe, my friend, and I’m sending hugs your way. xoxoxo

  1. Lovely thoughts Lauren. When we believe that the wind will carry our worries away to fritter them away into oceans, we feel blessed. I am glad the Pacific is so near and the wind blows all day around my home. 🙂

    1. Thanks for sharing your thoughts, Balroop, and it is a blessing to know the wind will carry those worries far away. We’re close to the Pacific too. In fact, Stinson Beach is a favorite of ours…I think you are just across the bay if my memory is right. 🙂 Enjoy that ocean breeze…

    1. Thank YOU for your lovely comment, Lisa. Lately, I’ve been sinking into negative thoughts, not a comfortable place to live. So, I thought maybe a beacon of hope would help everyone, not just me. 🙂 Hugs and blessings to you too! xoxo

  2. How true are your words as you start the poem
    “ Sometimes we get lost in our thoughts…
    losing focus of stars shimmering above us, “

    You continue and show the way out of the dark so we can see the sun again.
    Wonderful. 💕.


    1. Thanks, Miriam, for your beautiful comment. Sometimes we need to “get out of our heads” to find the light again. 🙂 I appreciate your visit, as always. Take good care. 💜

I appreciate your thoughts!
