Just wanted to share my thoughts from last year.

I know I said I was going to post after my scarves were done. But I really wanted to share this as we wind down  through the last week of this shopping madness.

 season greedy

must I have more of a reason

to be happy, it’s over, this season

people in stores acting like they have no couth

shopping from the basement to the roof

it’s really heart breaking, sad and not funny

people rushing to spend up their money

for that must have, do or die item

like it’s some semi precious gem

that will be forgotten, lost and discard

before the bill has you broken-hearted

it hurts to see an abandoned and broken toy

what happen to giving for the comfort and joy

is this the true meaning of Christmas to you

paying a bill late or missing a meal or two

helping the rich get richer off the…

stained with tears of the past
blessed with a collection of smiles
overwhelmed with the priority of joy
every second, every breath
always a gift
always appreciated
standing on my own
creating a path to follow
leaving fear behind
and packing confidence
my purpose and yours
my reason and yours
uniting our future
the blessings of our ancestors
the vision for our descendants
the greatest gift
living life free
of fear
of hate
living life
with love,
with hope
the greatest gift
is share blessings
that rains on us all

Moments with Millie asked Two Important Questions last week. Questions I’ve been pondering and meditating on and others since I’ve been given a the wonderful gift of life again.  I haven’t posted anything but I’ve been writing, mostly my thoughts.  Trying to sort out why I’ve been spared by a cancer that could have been swift and aggressive.  A cancer that is very rarely found in stage one. I believe I’m blessed but beyond being blessed I want to know what is my purpose as I continue to live.  How do I pay this debt of life continuing in?

Millie is helping me sort my thoughts and I am so very thankful for that. The following is my answer to her Two Important Questions.


respect for each other
for nature
for the darkness that gives us stillness
the sunrise that shines through the darkness
forgive our own hearts for the negative
that creeps into our mortal thoughts
embrace hope peace and the love that flows freely
and whispers in the gentle breezes around us
I want to be in the moment
and separate from the confusion
that rolls around this planet
we call our earthly home
how can we separate ourselves
when we are all the one beating heart
of existence
should we build a barrier of love
to reflect and repel the ugliness
the hate
the horrors of humanity
that taint our lives
we can’t sit
and let life pass us by
how, how can we create a garden of beauty
when the seeds have been artificially produced

Now is Today

Published December 16, 2014 by silentlyheardonce

seeking the future
today I hoped for tomorrow
to see a new day
excited with the possibilities
the wondrous
and the surprises
will the sun shine
or will rain drop
will the birds sing
and flowers blossom
what will tomorrow bring
a dance of joy
or a tear of sorrow
so excited
that I forgot
to embrace this day
