Sing Me Today

Sing Me Today

Sing me a song, doesn’t need to be new
It can be about me, it can be about you.

Or maybe a song about other  things

maybe hope for tomorrow and the good it can bring.

Sing me a song, an uplifting one

I’m in need of connections with universal love.

Sing me a song, right now, right away

no, not tomorrow, sing me today.

Make it grand, warm and loving so all will respond 

with an outpouring of love from their very own song.

Please sing me a song I can harmonize to

and after we’re thru, 

I shall sing one for you

filled with love, joy and  caring, 

without further delay

I will then also … sing you today!”

Thank you. Have the best weekend possible, filled with many good things.

most sincerely,

Go You Softly, Into Night of Day

Go You Softly, Into Night of Day

There are those who despair the day even before it begins!

There are  those who despair the day, even as it ends!

There  are those who despair the day whenever trouble wends!

… And then there will be those who don’t!

.

Those who with quiet strength manage to find a way!

Those who are standing strong, helping others in each new day!

and those, in spite of adversity – by your side do always stay.

So I say to you:

“Go You softly into night of day,

Trust in your heart to guide along the way.

And know that love spreads faster than

the fear of fear ‘can ever can’.”

~ Plh, 2016

.

Your compassion, prayers and hopes are sorely needed now for those suffering and in harms way, both here in the USA and abroad. Care, share, and help as you can.

With much affection,

Love Equals Universal Infinity Or …

When An ‘Event Horizon’ Becomes Reflected Illusion

393cc205913d4a7e951c2b80c750555f

From quantum-ness perspective

The Cosmic thinking be

a black hole is existing

in love’s reality.

But illuminate the equation

and in actuality

There’s no true “Event Horizon”

it simply cannot be.

Those hidden boundaries are

fear’s illusionary things,

while light from life and loving

Infinity it brings.

She Is The Flow – Haibun (essence of female)

emrunning

The flow is the balance.

A runner of life, she knows flow is balance. She is the flow. Running through early morning golden meadows, hair streaming behind, her breathing is deep and even. Her element is air, flow is balanced. A runner’s secret, balance can initiate speed but speed is cause – not effect.

On this morning the soles of her feet touch fleetingly upon damp morning dew. Something occurs, an otherworldly melding of effect with cause. Balance is cause but time is effect. She runs on with balance enhanced. She is fleeter, running more swiftly, the blending of morning’s moisture with air melds microcosmic elements together. Magic? She finds she can now run through time. Her yesterdays, todays and tomorrows – a real/all-time effect!

Now she runs through life … her life and all life. An amazing thing.  An illusion? She runs on. She is a conduit of flow and the balance to life. An awakening discovery for her to recognize the strength within.

*

She, the flow of life

becomes balancing essence

of time, cause and effect

By the way: My previous post was not about me, even though I wrote it in the first person. It was a commentary about people, our current society and where “we” the people are and how we’re feeling about same. So just clarifying, I am fine, doing exceedingly well.

Have an great and wonderful weekend,

With affection,

What Do I Do With this New Day?

image

Oh, what shall I do
with this glorious new day?
It’s mine for the living
despite come what may.

How can I share
these feelings so grand,
where new life’s unfolding
making its stand?

And where do I fit
in this scheme of all things?
Do I even belong
Or is life a dream?

Yet be it a dream
I shall not despair,
for happy I am
Whether here or there.

~Plh, 2016

 

May your week be going smoothly and your cares be far removed.

With much affection,

You Promised Me This …

image

Unspoken it’s true
Yet you promised me this:
With our last kiss
one shared with bliss.

With final embrace
that’ll never erase
your gentle caress
of finest finesse.

Promising truly
a shining sublime
of, lasting always,
a love so divine.

Never ever to be
feeling bereft
and though I still cry
I now know why
… you left.

Tho’ love can be pure
It sometimes can’t endure
or so it seems
save in one’s dreams.

“So I’ll see you there
sweet love of mine,
Where love will last
for all of time.” ~ Plh, 2016

Quiet Your Mind

quietude

An Interlude of Quietude

Be calm, please be still

do quiet your mind,

dismiss troubled thoughts

of a worrying kind.

*

Nourish the peace

to be found deep within,

soothing life’s passages

of times we live in.

*

Quiet your mind

dear friends of mine,

know there’s tomorrow

when all can be fine.

*

With calm assurance

know you’re not alone,

with courage and belief

… a way will be shown.

Our Crazy World … But I Won’t Give In (Neither should you!!)

123stormy

Our Crazy World

full of crazy contradictions

temperamental

… as a summer storm,

so I hold on tight, believe I’m right –

try my best surviving crazy days and nights.

And through despair, trying not to care

evening though I know I’ll still be there,

because I wont give in,

I’ve got my pride, heart open wide

And even though

I know  it’s (damn) hard to win.

Still even so,

how I love …

Our Crazy World.

~ Plh

Hang in there everyone. Life isn’t the easiest right now but I believe … in you and a better tomorrow for all of us. Have a wonderful weekend.

With sincere affection,

~ Penny

 

The Song of All Souls

abcswan

Misty morn or perhaps early evening.

The Song of All Souls

Within seedlings of trees that grow

And the whisper of winds that blow

In the river flowing down to the sea

Hear the song of all souls singing free.

In the laughter of people at play

The bright sun giving light to each day

All the planets and stars in the sky

Share love’s song deep inside you and I.

The waves as they crash on the beach

Golden moonbeams we look up to reach

And the love that we all need so much

From this song, closed hearts can be touched.

Deep inside where love has no wall

Our souls they do sing out to all

They guide like the outgoing tide

to the seas where all hearts open wide.

Plh~2016
