#81. The Art of Nothingness

Eko Hotels Poolside

Today, we sway to the poetry of nothingness.

No lists. No check marks. No counters. No timers.

Today, we watch the colours of the butterflies

And listen to the rhythmic sounds of crickets

And feel the cool warmth whispered in the winds

Today, is the day you choose to take the time

and spend time in the wholeness of your soul,

in the hidden broken pieces you drag in tow;

the forgotten, buried and often ignored parts.

#21. LIFE! A series of moments.

Day 5. NaPoWriMo- Celebrate Poetry, All Month Long!

LifePoem: LIFE! A series of moments.

Until you know, you do not know

You can only do that which you do know

So open up to the world all around you

And keep looking until you find the answers

The answers are buried within you

If you dare to look past the walls and tear yourself

Away from the self-imposed prison around your soul

Clear the cobwebs and the fog of fear, arise from the pitiless hole

The hell of today becomes paradise with a single step

So take action, just a single step forward into this vision

Drink this moment in. For all of life is a series of magical moments.

It is not the events themselves that matter, you see

It is your attitude more than anything that’s key.

So act on what you know now, and give it everything you’ve got

There’s power in focus, action and positive thought

Your transformation is not a sudden big bang,

And it is not an instant genius stroke from a magic wand,

Rather, it is simply a journey each day re-started

A gradual, sometimes painful, not-so-graceful, long walk on a path uncharted.

And above it all, I must confess, it is the most beautiful process

With each step you behold the light within as it beams

And become more of the being you were created to be.

You are an original with different gifts that you must plant as seeds

For there’s something unique inside you that the world needs.

In this moment, pause, take a life-breath and embrace your purpose

Yes, indeed, life is merely a series of NOWs.

All of life is indeed a series of moments.

Your purpose is to live every moment

And make sure that each moment counts!
