Be kind to those who pass you by:

Release let go that pent up feeling
Begin, renew your inner healing
Nervous tension, springs abound
Turning, spinning, run aground.

Mental anguish, torture snare
For us all just be aware
Look out for those telltale signs
Try to read between the lines.

No matter how it may appear
Life’s not always fun or cheer
Take a moment from your day
To help a stranger on their way.

J. Poet 7 ( )

Be mindful of your sanity

I often wander aimlessly
Freeing up my mind
For no rhyme or reason
Not clustered or confined.

Clearing all those negatives
Cluttering my brain
Making space for happiness
Bright sunlight no more rain.

It may just take a moment
Out of your busy day
But don’t you think it’s worth it
To help you on your way.

J. Poet 7 ( )

Hear nature shout.

Life is an endless treasure map
Do not fall into the boredom trap
Where every hour is like a day
Procrastinate, dilly – dally, stay.

Open up that window pane
Let butterflies into your brain
Immerse yourself in rivers, seas
Maybe even hug some trees.

Allow nature take you on a spin
Release those worries, woes within
Endless pages you’ve not read
While lying motionless in bed.

J. Poet 7 ( )

Relax, rewind, reduce the pace.

Do you drive down to the gym
Step into the pool and swim
Eat green lettuce for your tea
Bathe yourself in oils – tea tree.

Out of bed do some press ups
Apple Watch for your check up.
Or do you walk down to the shop
View life from nearby hilltop.

Take a moment just to breathe
Sit upon a park bench- read
Dip your toe into the sea
Paddle right up to your knee.

You may find your mind is clearer
Next time you look into a mirror
A smile returned onto your face
Relax, rewind, reduce the pace.

Lost in the moment. A Western sunset.

Still silence sets on silken waters
Senses so sophisticated softened by brilliant radiant rays.
Reflecting golden glows glimmer.
Glistening light Silver slivers
rippling Into the darkness of the night.
Pleasant, pleasing, worries easing
Unwanted troubles waning wilting
Relaxing into the glory of a Western Sunset.

Sunlight on a Daffodil gives me a thrill

Lawns dance gaily with yellow tipped daisies
Bright beaming buttercups blow
Overgrown meadows laying low
Daffodils, tulips bent in seeming adoration
Wafting waves weave tunefully through the air
Whipped wildly by sudden winter breeze.
And I am one with nature, free without a care.

J. Poet 7 ( )

We’re all at one when underground

I wonder if you’ve reached an age
Where you open the obituary page
Nod your head and then you say
I must head down to church to pray.

Another friend had passed on by
Remember him, heave a sigh
For us all this time will come
Hear beating of the funeral drum.

For life it passes in a flash
No matter how much power or cash
Anonymous or well renowned
We’re all at one when underground.
