Calm

As the Fisherman cleans his boat

After a long hard day.

Silently at his duty,

Proud and tired but relishing in the calm.

*********************

The sun lingering on the mountain top

Waiting for it’s slow decent.

To rest after a hot day passed,

Slowly drowned to calm at nightfall.

**********************

My boys pleasure squeals playing in the sea;

Delighted in the breeze.

Slow waves of the ocean coming in.

Ready to settle down.

**********************

Thoughts of gratitude.

Heart rate slow and steady.

Beauty imprinted in this moment.

Calm, peaceful and truly blessed.

Butterfly of forgiveness

I forgive you

For everything know or unknown.

I release you from the guild and pain;

I accept you as you are.

***********************************

I forgive you

So that you can find peace.

So that, that tightness in your chest can ease.

So that light can lift you!

************************************

I forgive you your shortcomings,

For all, that is what makes you whole.

I embrace your tears,

For strength needs you to be vulnerable.

************************************

I forgive those who caused pain and resentment!

I free them so, I can be free!

I follow the wings of the butterfly,

Free of emotional trauma!

************************************

Mama’s Boys

Blond little monkeys,

Scattering around the house.

Laughter and swirling,

Delightful in their play!

*******************

I love you, Mama.

My heart overfilled!

I need you, Mama.

My purpose confirmed.

********************

Energy levels of crazy notes,

Frustrations competing with each other,

Fighting to assert their presence!

Cries of hurt that Mama comfort.

*********************

Double hugs,

Double joys,

Four little arms,

Wrapped around my neck.

*********************

Jacqui

The Pink Lily

Shining bright against the window,

Stealing a glimpse in your direction.

Pink and loud

Peace for my overwhelmed mind.

*******************************

Busy bee, working Mama.

Forgot about herself,

Rushing at work for her existence.

Caring of needs for others.

*******************************

Pink and dominant!

Holding its ground,

Bringing me back to reality.

Mama breath and be present.

*******************************

The pink lily,

Joy sparked in an instant!

Catching the glare of the sun,

To connect with my heart.

*******************************

Be present.

Jacqui

Anxiety

Wrapped around heart so tight,

My only friend in fright delight.

I need you!

I hate you!

*****************

I wrestle in fear,

You are always near.

I am tired,

You are so hard wired.

******************

Mindfulness, my sight is clear.

My heart opened and free, my dear!

You are jealous of my victory.

Holding on to our history.

******************

I surrender to my being,

You don’t know where to begin.

Letting go of me

I close my eyes and smile in glee.

*******************

Jacqui

Mind Games

Free as the sprayer in the pound.

Thoughts spread across my mind,

Notice them and let it pass,

Calm my mind from it’s chatter.

*****************************

Replace the negative with the positive.

You are blessed to be alive.

You are a beautiful soul.

It is possible when the mind believe.

******************************

Reaching the tips of the palm trees;

Soaring high above the clouds!

Still against the chirping of the crickets.

At peace and healing.

********************************

Immerse in the moment,

Appreciate the opportunity.

Let go and surrender

To the tranquility of the mind.

********************************
