Sun Kissed Days

A Moment Of Gratitude
Our days filled with chaotic wonder,
and moments of despair,
happiness a balance of sorrow.
Flower petals open,
the earth is kissed by the rain,
unlock your heart.
Live with gratitude,
the sun will whisper in your ear,
the evening stars will guide you home.
Plant seeds of kindness,
and your soul will dance.
Follow your bliss,
but don't abandon others.
feel the unity with the universe,
live your truth.
Live with gratitude each day.

A sweet, simple dose of serenity - it's what we all might find if we just remember to breathe, to open ourselves to a world larger than ourselves. Lovely ode to the season and to such kindness itself, Ayala!ReplyDelete

I love these lines...
"Flower petals open,
the earth is kissed by the rain,"
(suzy@ somewhere a melody)
With gratitude is the only way to live. Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
a beautiful sentiment, and lovely imagery. :) the picture at the top reminds me of places I've seen in Italy where lovers would symbolize their togetherness by putting a lock on a fence or a bridge, until there would be just locks and locks and locks... :) Have a warm & love-filled Thanksgiving!ReplyDelete
