Nature Lessons 226

There are patterns that run throughout our lives, patterns that repeat themselves time and time again, sometimes even after we have learnt the lessons they bring. Patterns are unavoidable, they are splashed across the world and can be seen throughout nature. There is quite simply a pattern to life and our existence is entwined within it.

I’m a little more than cranky lately,

which only goes to show.

I’m getting near to breaking point,

although nobody knows.

It’s the stupid things I’m doing now,

that might be a subtle clue.

But you don’t notice me falling apart,

because you’re cranky too.

Life is presenting me many obstacles,

that I’m trying hard to sort.

There’s tiny traps everywhere I go,

and I don’t want to get caught.

Crankiness is my only escape now,

as it covers up all my fears.

It’s easier being cranky you see,

than ending up in tears. 


Daily Prompt – Cranky

Measure of You

I’m not sure that I could measure,

how much you mean to me.

To try to would be quite incredible,

and truly far too much to see.

It’s wider than all my experience,

it’s much longer than the road.

It’s taller than the greatest tale,

and it won’t open with a code.

The measure of you is impossible,

and just too much for me to say.

As you still keeping on growing,

so much greater every day. 

If you’d measure me against you,

you’ll see that I’m quite small.

There’s not really any comparison,

I wouldn’t be seen at all.

Thought I’d posted this yesterday. I’m in the process of packing to move home and not got my wits about me!


Blindly to Being

Sometimes it takes a while to be, 

a while to find our shape.

At first we often get life wrong, 

we have to make mistakes.

It’s quite blindly that we carry on,

but we won’t know the way.

Though with trust our sacred ally, 

we will come to be someday.

We’ll never find all the answers, 

but some become more clear.

Working on through all the clues, 

in the time that we are here.

It’s right that we arrive here blind,

so that we can uncover seeing.

Discover our beauty on our own,

while we’re coming into being.


Daily Prompt – Blindly



I had a dream last night that I was given a message that I would die today, it was written in the peal of an orange, but that’s beside the point. 

It was a strange dream, I went from one scene to the next and it was all mixed up as dreams are. I was myself and I was someone else, I looked out of my eyes and watched myself at the same time. I received a parcel full of gifts, letters from people I know and don’t, thanking me for helping them, some of the things I wasn’t aware of doing. There were presents too, a camera, lots of things wrapped up, gifts I didn’t get time to open before waking and an orange telling me today is the day you die. 

My sister was with me in the dream, she walked beside me. She’s staying with me at the moment, she arrived late last night. Now I think this is just the weirdest dream but laying in bed this morning, it made me think, what if it was my last day and how would I spend it.

I sort of wanted to get out of bed and be the nicest version of myself I could be, give my sister a lovely day. I thought in my blurry still half asleep state, it’s a good job I know, I can make sure all my choices are right, I won’t waste time on anything.

Funny how we waste so much time, we waste others time too in not living life to the full. In not saying how we feel, or doing what we say.

I’m not too sensible, I sleep with the phone beside my bed frying my brain, but I picked it up to look at the time and it opened on a ‘new post’ page. I thought I would share my dream, share an opportunity.

Now I hope none of us are going to die today, but wouldn’t it be great if we all made it the day we might, say the things we mean and do those things we say. A day of in case, because for a number of people in the world it will be. 

Take time today to tell people how we feel, say thank you and make that call we always mean to make. Look around as if we are leaving, does the housework really need to be done today.

Imagine leaving the world and thinking why did I waste time, when I had so little of it left. I don’t want to waste time today, not that I think I will die, I know it was just a weird dream, but because any day I might and one day I will!
