Winter

Winter commands silence

it has a unique beauty

that demands attention

an untrodden ground

blanketed by virgin snow.

A sight to see

silence and purity

not even a single crow perched on the tree

silence is the sound

winter a time for rumination

a time of standing still.

Of consideration of retreat

of melding together.

Think of me

Think of me when your night has been too lonely, and the road you traveled has been rough.

Think of me when you want company, but also think of me when you need to be loved.

Reach for me when you want to be happy, loved and appreciated.

Curtain of clouds

As the winter sighs and the rain trickles down

the window pane

it will almost drive you insane

fret no more for in a few weeks

there comes a flower budding near the creek

before we know it the curtain of clouds will part

as the earth continues to breath life

and the new season arrives

Being strong

When life is throwing lemons at you… Stand your ground, take a deep breath! Take those lemons and make some lemonade. Heck! pour some Vodka in it.

Cheers! Don’t let life get you down! You got this!! Now wipe those tears away and start making some lemonade.

Feeling alive

The pain you hide

the anger you told

the things got you tongue tied

and the stories you sold

you thought they will make you bold

enough to run and hide.

The pain you hide

are still alive

just waiting

waiting

to cut the air in your throat

and to sink the boat.

So for you to jump, to jump in the water

to alter who you are and to keep your

pain behind your anger

because it keeps you feeling alive.

Sometimes…

We forget to create a life that will make us happy, we chase our dreams, we focus on the future that we forget to live the Now. We ignore the fact that time is ticking by, that we only live once and when all the days and months gone by we can never get them back.

I personally think that we all need to learn to live a life that feels good to us. Not just a life that looks good to others. We put on this mask and proceed to live our lives on a daily basis, and we forget that we are on automatic pilot. We focus on going to work and making money for the company we work for, making our bosses happy. But are we really happy? When we are tied on our desks 5 days a week 8 hours or so a day, then we rush to get home to rest and start over again the next day.

You, out there tell me how your usual week is like? Tell me your routine to make it to work the next day and the next. Tell me your dream vacation. Tell me over a cup of coffee, lets sit and talk, I’m going to listen.

So, for 2019 please plan on a vacation or time off work, even for a few days. It will surely do you good. Visit a loved one who is living on a different State. Check up on our aging relatives, spend time with them while we can.

I’m sure I will.
