Wonders


 

Sky

Look up at the sky…

a universe of wonders are up high…

blue and white contrast…

to make a magnificent effect.

From here will come the rain for crops to grow,

brilliant white snow for us all,

and somewhere up there,

lies the kesai hakovod.

walk down a street…

a world of wonders will unfold,

mysterious untold,

English: Street in Bucharest after the rain

people live their lives here,

each with a different story,

each street has housed dozens of people’s history.

hundreds of people,

each with a life their own,

have walked down this same road.

Look up at a tree.

A full-sized tree.

green and brown,

it takes the rain in,

and will bring it out,

when comes the time for it to sprout.

it has seen perhaps over a hundred years of history.Tasmania, Styx valley. This Eucalyptus regnans...

the fashions come and go,

people stay and people leave,

leaving their generations in their steed.

it watches how the world changes,

how some things stay the same.

you ask what is to thank for,

and I have listed but three,

“common” things we see every day,

which have so much beauty,

if only we would stop and see.

my challenge to you:

stop and notice a regular object.

what do you see?

Your Effect

Dreams…

Long- lost thoughts drift in the mist of time…

dreams come and go…

Words are said and constantly forgotten…

People walk in and out of our lives all the time…

Deeds are done and forgotten…

Everything comes and go as if they never occurred.

 

Alas, is time but an illusion,

buried time for naught,

Dreams long forgotten worth nothing at all?

We spend so much time on things that turn out to be nothing at all,

petty and soon forgotten.

 

Are they all for nothing?

 

In a place far away,

and what goes on there no one can truly say,

the master scribe sits,

recording every deed,

every word.

 

each prayer is used to bring relief,

or sealed for the future.

 

Each tear used to heal the sick,

spark a dream,

another brick on the heavenly kingdom.

 

Each deed is forever imprinted,

on the world it will forever have an impact,

a brick added,

or subtracted,

each one does something in a not not so small way.

 

So make sure each word is truly what you mean to say,

each smile to brighten another’s day,

each deed carefully measured,

because it will make an impact on the world,

if not today,

then sometime far away,

and each thing,

will come back to you one day.

without the pain


A crash,

A bang,

as hurricanes and storms hit our lives,

uprooting us from the comfort and tranquility,

that was once ours,

then we step back,

reflect,

and grow.

why is that?

why is it that we must wait for something to shake up our world to grow?

if you grow from the everyday experiences,

if you always question who you really are,

how you can grow,

and what you are achieving,

each day can be as powerful as if you always have earthquakes,

without actually receiving them.
