Grab a cup of tea or coffee (oh what the heck, get a danish too!) and sit a spell. You might want to grab your notebook and pen because you never know when you will be inspired to write down a quote, or jot down a poem of your own. Words are like that, they take you on a journey and the next thing you know you are breathing life into your own magical world of words.

It has been a busy couple of weeks and today is my first day off I've had in over 7 days. I decided to keep this poem short and off prompt. I may write to the prompt later but it felt like something deeper which I just didn't have the energy for at the moment.

Finding flowers in 
unusual places 
a pastime 
I enjoy 
seeing the beauty 
and strength 
in nature 
reminds me 
to be strong

Have fun playing with your words during OctPoWriMo!

Surrendering to Love

It begins. OctPoWriMo seventh annual poetry challenge begins now. The words flow from many all over the world. Some link up and some choose to play with their words offline. Will you be one of them?

Today's prompt is about surrendering to love, allowing oneself to open to love within and love from others.

it isn't as simple as
black and white
so much baggage to unpack
being in the moment
can be painful
and then there are
moments of
sudden and sharp
making colors come alive
music sound brighter
hope blossoms
and then is dashed
surrender is a state of
surrendering to love
doesn't always feel safe
will now be the time
will now be the place
surrendering to love


Hop on over to OctPoWriMo to see what other poets are writing about Surrender.
