Sometimes I ponder – The trending of it all!

When – What Then

When sands of time – cease to flow

When dreamers – cease to dream

When thinking thinkers – just don’t know

What then will come, what then.

~

When roaring rivers cease to flow

When laughter fades away

When breezy winds no longer blow

What then will come, what then.

~

If tomorrow isn’t there

And only now exists

Will my heart beat matter much

this moment to the next.

~ Penny Howe, 2012

Ponder this – if you will: Is staying on top of – tuned into – and gravitating towards the next big trend of things really all that important in life? Really? What do you feel, where are you trending … and is it where you want to be tomorrow?

Thanks for the visit, I hope that your tomorrows are all they can be!

Looking for Love in all the Right Places

~

Don’t all of us look for love, in some way or other? I think we do.

I believe with a quick reference to multimedia here, that while commercialism is certainly in the mix, whether we go online and “search”, or twitter, facebook, blog, or a variety of interactive things in the everyday world we are looking for love. To be loved and love in return. It is important.

Noone should be or feel unloved. Noone, Ever! So my piece today references the search for Love

~

I COME WHEN I AM CALLED

I searched for love the world at large

I searched both day and night.

I looked and looked so very hard

but could not get it right.

And then I loved (because I could)

And shared myself therefore …

And then much to my own surprise

Love knocking on my door.

“Why do you come here”, this I said

With wonder in my eyes.

I couldn’t find you … there was dread

That Love would be denied.

Love bowed its most magestic head

And wisely said to me.

“Love returns to your homestead

When given out for free.”

“I’m always there, so close – nearby

You only had to care.

Loving pathways light the skies

I come each time you share.”

“Give freely of the love you have

Give freely onto all.

Love will always be returned

I come when I am called!”

Love, the most important word on the planet – pass it on!

Thank you for visit, may your day be filled with love!

Live for something.  Do good, and leave behind you a monument of virtue that the storm of time can never destroy. Write your name in kindness, love, and mercy, on the hearts of thousands you come in contact with year by year; you will never be forgotten. No, your name, your deeds, will be as legible on the hearts you leave behind as the stars on the brow of evening. Good deeds will shine as the stars of heaven.  ~Chalmers~

I originally posted this two years ago and, although I have tweaked it, I think it is still a good question to ask ourselves.

What is a life?  What gives it meaning?  The answer to this question will be as unique as each of us is, different for everyone.  This was the question posed to me by a dear friend a few years back who was dying from a rare…
