Dance of the Trees

Have you witnessed the trees dance?

Swaying in the winds with soaring spirits

Beckoning the sky to rain some more …

Even a seemingly barren tree

Is full of life and alive in every moment

Ready to spring with a freshness of spirit

Even the dry parched roots, shapes into a new life.

The branches may be dried but trust nature to grow some more

And fill the senses once more

With vibrant hues of leaves in all shades of green.

 

Being a tree is a mighty task

Sheltering and shading every passerby

Giving fruits is a labour of love

Receiving carbon and sharing oxygen

 


And standing rooted to the ground 

In all its natural abundance

For life to spring countless times

With nesting birds and the burrowing bees

 

The spirit of the tree is all heart

Sharing beyond compare

And watch as the world passes it by

In the echelons of time.

 

 

Trees stand the test of time

Of guts and glory upholding untold stories

Letting go the falling leaves in every day

Letting go the fright of loneliness and the pain of loss

 

 

 

Cos it knows the circle of life only too well…

What goes comes around

Like a breath of fresh air and a bud that is ready to spring.

The Gift of Life

To dance is to acknowledge the living you at this moment
In every move, the heart and mind is looped in joyousness
In every flight is the beauty of lightness.

To dance is to realize

The sensation of living

And to energize the self

As well as the surroundings

With this gift of life!

On tranquillity

In sensing the tranquillity within
In knowing the sounds of silence
In flowing freely in the moment

Is the dance of wonder and awe
Of the beauty in the being …
In the bliss of the bless.

When the heart dances…

When the heart dances

The body moves

The spirit sings

The soul senses

Joy abounds.

It doesn’t matter what dance you love …. what matters is that your heart loves to dance 🙂

A great message that just had to be shared . Am sure we all can resonate with this.

All I did was add some imagery to the words!

Windows of the Soul

Waltz of the Eyes

If eyes could speak
They would say a thousand words
May be more
Yes eyes speak more than words can tell
Have you seen eyes up close
They say much more

There is defiance denial
Hurt and humility
Fear and pain
Sadness and confusion
Longing for approval
And anguish of anxiety
There is judgement and approval
Brazeness and courage
Hope and trust
Mystic and magic
Enigma so magnetic
And yet there is also
Surprise and innocence
Charm and grace
Kindness and Generosity
A Light of Love
For life and living.

Waltz of the Eyes indeed! Speaking much without words that portrays the undeniable truths of life .

How much life experiences can speak through these windows of our soul! Check it for yourself … so much to read in there. May be you can see much more ….do share!

Savvy

Challenge accepted.

Day 3

My choice for Day 3 of the Lyrical Challenge is

I hope you dance By Lee Ann Womack

This song is about taking chances and not being afraid to try something new.

I hope you dance
I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger
May you never take one single breath for granted
God forbid love ever leave you empty handed
I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens
Promise me that you’ll give faith a fighting chance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance
I hope you dance
I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance
Never settle for the path of least resistance
Livin’ might mean takin’ chances, but they’re worth takin’
Lovin’ might be a mistake, but it’s worth makin’
Don’t let some Hellbent heart leave you bitter
When you come close to sellin’ out, reconsider
Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance (Time is a wheel in constant motion always rolling us along)
I hope you dance
I hope you dance (Tell me who wants to look back on their years and wonder)
I hope you dance (Where those years have gone?)
I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens
Promise me that you’ll give faith a fighting chance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
Dance
I hope you dance
I hope you dance (Time is a wheel in constant motion always rolling us along)
I hope you dance (Tell me who wants to look back on their years and wonder?)
