The light enters through the window,
my heart captures a magical moment.
The sun bathes me with love,
for a moment my spirit soars.
Modern life a fast pace journey,
our time misspent, we seek balance.
Pieces of ourselves scattered here, there.
We juggle days, we juggle lives,
we run and chase unattainable dreams.
We need to look within ourselves,
climb out of the walls of
our heart, to receive our desire.
To find peace, to find love,
leave our fingerprint here and now.

Very true, nice verse by you, need to come out of our shell and if it doesn't work, what the umm bell. Keep on going and growing.ReplyDelete
Look within to see what goodness that lays dormant. Latent power can bring surprises.ReplyDelete

Thanks, Ayala! I enjoyed the visit.
Warm Aloha from Waikiki;

Nice, I couldn't agree more too.ReplyDelete
i like how you had the pieces of ourselves spent here and thereReplyDelete
and then you came back to that image, only deeper, with the end. i only noticed that on the second read. i felt it on the first, cause i just read to read on the first read.
really good stuff:)
I can agree with you Ayala :)ReplyDelete

Oceangirl, I think everyone I speak to feels this way...we juggle so much and what are we missing while doing that?ReplyDelete
Thank you, Molly. I hope all is well by you. :)ReplyDelete
Oh, Ayala, this is my favorite poem you have ever written! Love and Peace - that is what it is all about. Isn't it? I hope to find it today.ReplyDelete
my heart is always lifted by light shining through windows...ReplyDelete
Ayala- I love how each line is six words. I also have a Friday challenge on Imaginary Garden with Real Toads...ReplyDelete
the look within, such an important shift to make. Lovely write ~ RoseReplyDelete
Our time misspent - what a sad truth. It's amazing how we fracture ourselves to keep pace, isn't it? But being here now, laying hands on the present, that's wholeness.ReplyDelete
Funny to me that as we seek this 'elusive' balance, we are loathe to let go of things that throw it off. Those quiet, sunlit moments when we stop and listen to ourselves are so precious. You're writing is always a sunlit moment for me. With your words I slow down, reflect, listen. Thank you!ReplyDelete
I'm having one of those days where everything I do feels like time misspent. I think it's time to head outside and play with my boysReplyDelete
Oh, this is gorgeous!ReplyDelete
Your poem is a peaceful respite from a fast paced modern world. The reminder to tune in and show up is an important one.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Caroline. I hope that you find it today and everyday :)ReplyDelete
Leslie..I feel the same way :)ReplyDelete
Thank you, Laurie :)ReplyDelete
Thank you, Rose :)ReplyDelete
Kate, that is wholeness :)ReplyDelete

Thank you, Brook :)ReplyDelete
I fear that I leave fingerprintsReplyDelete
just everywhere, but messily: smudges, misprints!
Ah, to be intentional AND adept!
That may be my unattainable dream. ;)
ah wonderful moments when the sun bathes us with love...also love that part with the fingerprints...true..ReplyDelete
Such beautiful words.ReplyDelete
That looks like Luxembourg - is it?ReplyDelete
"We juggle days. We juggle lives." Yes, and we need a little more time reflecting on what's truly important.ReplyDelete
Love the photo with this post! Beautiful park!
Melissa...you can do it :)ReplyDelete
Thank you, Claudia :)ReplyDelete
Thank you, Zeba. :)ReplyDelete
Lady Jennie, it's Paris :)ReplyDelete
Thank you, Mel :)ReplyDelete
I like the way your piece eases in with a sunlit magical moment, then segues into the frenetic ways of modern life, then, in a artful way, comes full circle to peace and love. Wonderful.ReplyDelete
Thank you, CJ.ReplyDelete
Thank you, KB :)ReplyDelete

We juggle days, we juggle lives,
we run and chase unattainable dreams.״
