Come Sit By Me A While: A Sunday Afternoon.

Source

How nice to have the chance to invite you all over once again. Yesterday we had a wonderful day exploring our gorgeous and enchanting countryside.

We sat out side before bedtime last night and a feeling of wondrous peace swept over me. A feeling of being at one with the world ; a feeling of great pride and of wondrous love for my family and wonderful friends ; this includes of course all of you on here.

Each day I am learning more things about myself ;that once jumbled path covered by sharp thorns is now smooth and stretching out eternally. Not a day goes by when I don't learn something new ;oh yes I learn from the sunshine which warms my heart, or from the moon of love and the twinkling stars promising bright tomorrows.

Today's choice of song 'Because We Believe' by Andrea Bocelli is beautiful and just listen to those lyrics!!!

Now then as always bring your refreshments out here and are we all seated comfortably ??

Right I shall begin.

Life's path leads to enchantment

of gripping beauty.

Crying out in deep longing;

begging for each footstep to

lead to paradise.

Is there such a place

where we know we belong ???

Will the paths of past years now connect

and form a road

to bring those bright but distant dreams

together.

To allow us

to live and embrace

those once so unattainable

dreams.

New wonders

inhaled and caressed

around each corner.

Hearts full of wonder

Memories floating in a stagnant beauty

of mesmerised magical potions;

constant cries so full of woebegone tales;

vaporised to wonders

of touching emotions.

Seeped through with a life long need for

love

care

and belief.


Reflections of love;

a magnitude

of wondrous beauty.

Today we know for sure

that the

ragged and tired

heaving

and weary

disbelief

from

a being

so lacking

in self confidence;

cured up tightly

from the darkness of life;

never again to be hurt;

never again to be touched ;

slowly but surely

lifts its pure face

to the soft white clouds

to be embraced

by all the beauty

that life

holds .

Mother nature's magical greenery

fills each heart and

cleanses

each doubt filled crevice.

Swells with a great pride

by the warmth

of summer sunshine.

Lift your head and walk tall;

a self pride of wondrous emotions

to stay eternally.

Each brand new dawn

stamps its

ever engaging

promise of

the nectar of sweet life.

Sweet blossoms of love and purity

touches each tender and soft song

mingling with those of

truth

strength

and enchantment.

A future as bright and beautiful

as tunes of love

dancing on the summer breezes.

A time to come

to move through bleak darkness

flowing into sweet tasting light.

Sharing a wonder

born to shine

Oh yes we do believe.

I hope you all enjoyed yourselves and lots of love to you all from my little corner of Wales.

You had me, Eddy, with the opening words and then the beauty that I was privy to as you took me along to see the beauty made me feel as if I were truly with you. Coming to your writing is always a lovely experience.

To be perfectly honest with you my dear Eddy of eloquence and excellence I would sit with you 'any afternoon' and I so do love your pictures here and your lovely heartfelt words. I will post your awesome hub presentation to my FB page for 'Eddymania' to happen and then it will replace Beatlemania once and for all , lol.

Everytime I have the pleasure of arrving here you always make me think of my mum in a very good and loving way.

I suffer from depression, anxiety and high blood pressure so I seem to have good days and bad days but thankfully it has not affected my creativity.

Always so nice to spend some time with you and I am sending 3 big Canadian hugs from Colin, Little Miss Tiffy and Mister Gabriel at lake erie time 11:55am canada

Your words, your pictures and of course, the sounds of Andrea

bring tears to my eyes. I so admire your sweet, positive spirit.

And, I appreciate your hubs that you share with us.

I once asked a counselor, "How can I ever forgive?" And, the

counselor answered, "It is simple; you say, 'I forgive you', and, you never look back."

Dear Eddy, you bring me right to the edge of forgiving.

I know your story, and you have lived through unimaginable

pain and grief. Yet, here you are, breathing in the sweetness of life, grateful for every moment.

Your hubs reach across the miles and touch people around the world. If you ever have doubts, or wonder why you keep doing these writings, just know that there are hearts who

need to hear your words of encouragement.

Thank you,

DJ.

i listened to the song and cried as i read your words..

i don't know if i've ever felt more grateful than i do today..

something evil from long ago re-entered my life via the hub- and it threw me for a loop, but - the strange thing is - i came out even stronger for it!

The people at the hub are some of THE most evolved folks on the planet as far as i'm concerned. I adore them, and YOU, my friend - are X-tra special!

i love the last picture most of all...

sharing on

What an enchanting country you live in. I always wanted to visit Wales, the sounds and beauty of your country side are spell binding. No wonder you have the gifts to write, your countryside is absolutely stunning. To walk the paths, adore the waterways, mountains and splendor of colors from an artist's palette, I would also be moved to write. Your poetry is relaxing, allows ones mind to drift though the meadows you lay before us with your camera. You are so gifted my dear poet and I am happy to listen to your video by a great singer as well as read your verse of exquisite beauty. Bravo, well done, voted and shared. You have a wonderful group of followers and I can read by all their comments, you are truly loved my dear. Keep writing.
