Blue Moon

That was certainly ‘full on’ couple of days, that big blue moon I mean. I went from happiness to despair and back again. I can be affected by the moon, I recognise and prepare for it, but this last one hit me for six.

On Monday I woke up feeling an emotional wreck, tearful and despondent. I couldn’t see much good in life. I opened my arms and embraced hopelessness fully and without question. Life was pointless, I was pointless and anything out there in the future just wasn’t worth it.

I spent the day going from one disaster to the next. I burnt toast, opened the door and the heavens opened, got lost and ran out of fuel. I didn’t want to talk to anyone and didn’t have anyone to talk to. It rained all day, for the umpteenth day that was, and the plants drowned.

Do you recognise this day, have you visited?

Yesterday I woke up singing, nothing had happened but my world had changed overnight. The sun was shining, the plants didn’t look that bad and I had things to do, people to meet and places to go. Everything went right, starting with my hair and outfit and moving onto everything else. I laughed with the people I met, finished projects and got new leads. People warmed my heart and made me feel loved. To put it simply, life couldn’t be better.

That moon is powerful but I think there’s so more going on. I constantly see double digits, my dreams are wild and my intuition is on overdrive. I think I’m being prepared for something. I’m releasing and letting go, the tears are cleansing, cathartic and restoring. Tears are the weeping of old wounds, healing from the depths within.

Are any of you getting this, are you experiencing similar? Are you managing the changes that are happening or are you immune to it? Is it necessary for growth, is it happening to all of us. Do some people just not notice or are they being left behind?

I know it’s crazy but it’s my kind of crazy now. I’m rolling with it, I’m trusting that there’s something wonderful to come. Today’s another sunny day and any clouds are just full of hope.

I watch the moon daily, I live by the sea and often stand on the shore watching the tides, sun and moon. I’ve been sun gazing too, that’s another story. The sun feeds me and the moon washes me, they are necessary to my growth, just as they are to the plants and everything else.

It’s all just cycles, I’m in a cycle, I’m moving through and so are you. Love to hear what you think of my craziness ūüôā

Grenfel Tower

The air was punctuated with the sound of crying – BBC News

It’s hard to imagine, even though I’ve been watching the news all day, the trauma of those caught up in the high rise fire in Grenfel Tower, West London today. I keep watching the news but I can’t bring those people back, I can’t make them safe.

I’ve watched extended news reports a lot lately, Manchester, London Bridge and now Grenfel Towers. For those of you that might not have heard a tower block caught fire today. It is said that it is unprecedented, an inferno that spread so fast it was impossible to save the people trapped in their homes. I watch the news reports because in a crazy way I feel that by watching I might be able to save someone.

Is that crazy, I stare at the TV in hope, hope that something magical will happen to rewind the scene? It’s all I can do at the moment, later I can donate, make sure my homes safe, make sure my loved ones know how to keep themselves safe, but for now I watch and hope.

Today’s Daily Prompt word was puncture, I heard punctuated. There are others like¬†chaos, evacuate, smoke, jump, smoke inhalation, safety, lost, lives, fire trap, hope, love.

Daily Prompt – Puncture

Walk into the Future

 

img_2451

If I could take you to your future,

would you want to go.

Would you walk the path with me,

to see what it would show

Could you find that dream in you

and take us both to see.

Could we step into that land,

what will you show to me.

If I could help you paint it,

would you use the brush.

Would you paint the scenery,

clear without any fuss.

Can you tell me how it sounds,

can you hear the tune.

Listen very carefully,

you’ll hear the music soon.

If you could introduce me,

to the people up ahead.

Would you hear their laughter,

can you tell me what was said

The futures but a step away,

you’ll see it’s outline soon.

Prepare your heart for happiness,

you must make sure there’s room.

New Day


Each sunset a goodbye, 

each sunrise a greeting.

Dawn bringing with her, 

the gentlest of meetings. 

Adue with one hand, 

the other one waves.

Experiencing new, 

treasure what’s saved.

Cherishing memories, 

but not to the point.

Another won’t fit in,¬†

new souls to anoint.

Starting the sentence, 

with a capital letter.

A poem of new love,

what could be better.

Painting a portrait,

high in the sky.

That talks of my passion,

to those passing by.

The start of a symphony,

on gentle strings.

Opening to adventure,

a new day begins.
