Some yummy goodness

A new favourite from Food Impromptu

ON ANY SUNDAY

Families converge
Yards get a serge
Driving and walking
Talking, consorting

Life seems simpler
Easier
Calm

Delight in this time
Be good and relate
With acceptance and love
All the things that are great

Today is the only day of your life
No before
or after
can deter your laughter

Seek only to know now
What happiness is
For life on a Sunday
Is really a fun-day!

“A Dog’s Purpose”

Remember, if a dog was the teacher you would learn things like:

  • When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
  • Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.
  • Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure ecstasy..
  • Take naps.
  • Stretch before rising.
  • Run, romp, and play daily.
  • Thrive on attention and let people touch you.
  • Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.
  • On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass.
  • On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree.
  • When you’re happy, dance around and wag your entire body.
  • Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.
  • Be loyal.
  • Never pretend to be something you’re not.
  • If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.
  • When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by, and nuzzle them gently

WITH BUGS IN MY EYES

Please will you tell me
The man did persue
The answer to this very perplexing a-do

Why does a dog
Continue to drive
With its head out the window
And get bugs in its eyes

The answer is simple
And I’ll relate it to you
Thank you for asking
Now this is my view

When a spirit arrives
And comes fully alive
The very experience is worth all of that jive

Exhileration
Excitement
Anticipation and more.

No matter the issues, the problems or size
I’m sure you agree with my whys
What are a few
Bugs in the eyes?!

The promise

It’s important for each of us to claim our sovereignty and be prepared to accept and appreciate all that comes into our experience. There’s a message for us in each transaction with others – our teachers.

To blame, deny, resist or project will only keep us in a place of resistance and disconnection with what is required to progress in our journey back to the pure essence of who we are – who we desire to be.

Nobody on earth at this time has achieved what we are capable of, but it is available to us all. Our journey is not just this earth existence – there is so much more awaiting us.

In human terms, it means being prepared to forgive and work on our own repentance and love; resist expectations on ourselves and others, and how things should be; and also focusing on our loving desires by using intention and attention.

There are none of us without sin within at this stage, so we need to work on clearing our energies/souls from all things that are not in alignment with God’s Love.

This is where we need to discern the difference between God’s Love and human love ideas.

God’s Love can appear harsh to the human brain. His rules are consistent and unbending. Sometimes you can appeal decisions and consequences in the human world – not so with God. The same law applies to everyone, all the time. He has designed them so that we can easily navigate through our existence with certainty … if we choose – and do not resist.

In each moment, the question is: is this thing I am thinking or doing the most loving of my choices at this time.It really is that simple. You will be rewarded or corrected. Not necessarily immediately or blatantly, but the balance sheet will be updated.

If we all choose to walk with God – and I’m not saying with religion. I’m saying ‘with God’, our futures and the future for our loved ones will be assured.

Don’t try to imagine what that would be like because we’re not capable from our positions at this time. Just feel your way through it, and appreciate all events and teachings we are presented with.

I have absolute confidence that we can do it. The more the merrier – it is true.

See you in my dreams, as we climb the ladder that is ‘life’ together, making our way to the promise.

A VOW

I solemnly promise
To do as I please
To have you and hold you
And love you with ease

Our beautiful union
Is one made on trust
And something a little closer to lust

For as long as our paths match
You’ll have me with you
Nothing can stop me from loving you

Even in darkness
And deep despair
Our bond will be a comfort
To help us repair

For loving each other
Is a breath of fresh air
To a  union of souls
Nothing does compare

 This journey will take us
To peaks high and low
But never be sorry
When you have to go

Stay true to your spirit
Give it your all
When your life summons
You must answer the call

Promises made at the core of our being
Keep knocking and knocking –
They will have us fleeing

Take with you my imprint
And know in your heart
That our goodness is greater
Than when we did start

Rising Above

Accused of plotting
‘Not being sincere’
How it did irk me
And make me feel queer!

I released some emotion –
Without a commotion
It soothed me and salved me
And lessened my fear.

When all of our fearful emotions are felt;
When all of the dastardly cards have been dealt
That’s when it happens;
That’s all that it takes
To finally feel the difference it makes

To say that I cherish all the lessons to learn
Would be boldly denying ‘it can make me churn’
Churning and learning go hand in hand
As we valiantly approach a warm place in the sand

As God is my witness,
And witness he does
(Not judge or condemn me,
Just sends me his love)
If I resolve to be humble
At this time in my life,
To quietly ponder all that it lures
It will help with my future,
Of which I am sure
Desperately, definitely depends on our love
And culminates, rightly, in Rising Above

My take on Purple Rain

Living blindly
Causes pain
If I could only see you as God sees you
Joyful in the heavenly mists
I want to see you basking in God’s Glory
Always near
As dear friends
Respecting choices
And rejoicing our love
Life is a chance for changes
Reaching for our perfection
That means you too
Let your soul be your leader
And treat it well
It can guide you to the heavenly realms
We all can reach out to the purple reign

Purple Rain lyrics

My poem ‘Look Deep’

The Question of Angels

The Angels have gathered
Have come with much love
To tell us profusely about rising above
They talk of creation as though it were us
Could it be they are just making a fuss?

Surely they cannot mean that at all
That humans so small cannot take a fall?
Just take on the notion that we are all one
And then we’ll find this life to be fun?

Surely they cannot convince us of this
That humans are greater than anyones bliss?
Collectively making a life here on earth
Striving for goodness and love from our birth?

These angels are loving and caring it’s true
They follow us ’round from the place that we grew
Picking up pieces that we leave by the way
Ever so gentle and peaceful each day

Stop now and embrace them
Stop now and delight
Stop now for the purpose to rejoice in their plight

Ask them and thank them and continue to grow
With a love like no other
Let it be so!
