Trees in the distance
a calling from the sea
Seagulls, waves, laughter
Rocky headland
the raging waves
Smashing and diverting
splash, surge and foam
The run of water
up and down, over and under
through rock spills and splits
Seaweed loving the push
pull, twist and turns

The symphony has started

and the darkness does descend

the world succumbs to quietude

the day has reached its end


The nighttime woods are glittering

and offer up a show

a dazzling performance

by the fireflies, aglow


On the distant hills around

Tiny flashing dots abound

There’s something special in the sight

of cozy darkness specked in white


In the earth and sky above

the spectacle, I truly love

my heart lays still as I rest my head 

and all my troubles seem to fade away

Friday Insight – Be grateful

I’m happily enjoying my life’s journey taking one step at a time, grateful for the moments that I had in the past and looking forward for more in the future. Dear lord thanks for giving me a lovely family, supportive friends and this amazing blog where I’m able to share this all.


Be thankful for clouds, earth, stars and moon.
Spiritual goodness and grace of outside.
Grateful for diversity, far and wide.
Kids who respectfully question why.

Be thankful for a keen sense of creativity,
For imagination, and a liveliness to play.
Be thankful for a flexible inclination,
With every single fiber and in every single way.

Be thankful for health, and in the right to be free
Thankful for God’s blessings bestowed on us.
Grateful for the variety of people you can readily be.
Most of all, be thankful for the opportunity to be you.

Have an amazing Friday 😊

Dear Tom

I’m alone these days

So I watch stars

at night

But it’s really hard

to understand how far

they are when

they seem so close

They don’t tip off strangers

They know how to keep secrets


Actually I never really

cared about them

until my only friend Tom


He was a true friend and my

Only companion

I remember the day when

Dad bought him home

It was raining


I grew up with him

We’d run carefree

wander the hills

and kiss the clouds

Night we’d watch

the stars across

the lake.

Tom didn’t really care

about the stars

He just loved to run.


But youth has a way

of slipping away and the sun sets on our fate.

the appointment comes that we

all have to make.

And then the light dwindles and

it moves from the face to the sky.


I see him now

In the Sirius

He’s so bright

Outshining the other stars

His tongue hanging down and

those eyes so blue and full of light.

My boy’s shine will never fade

There he is running as always



You were my best friend

The Twilight Firefly


Melodious music of summer
The clock ticks on
Shadows grow darker
Between life and the beauty

See those beautiful butterflies,
Which are soothing to my eyes.
And then you pass me by,
Just like a firefly.

As dusk walks in
On her evening chin
Time hushes
As the twilight blushes

The night descends from the stars
Among the firefly flowers
And two of us meet
What a bliss!

Keep Smiling



A smile costs nothing, however, gives much

It takes, however, a minute, yet its memory ordinarily keeps going forever.

None are rich to the point that can get along without it-

none are so poor that can be made rich by it.

It advances the individuals who get,

without making poor

the individuals who give-

It makes daylight in the home

It can heal a frozen heart

But it can’t be asked, obtained, or stolen,

for it is of no esteem,

Except if it is given away.

A few people are excessively caught up with,

making it impossible to give you a smile

Give them one of yours-

For the great Gods realizes that nobody needs a smile so badly

As he or she who has no more smiles left to give.
