In the Corners of the Mind..........

Isn't that what everyone says
the answers all lie waiting ....within
but then we aren't always allowed there
Or allow our selves the intrusion
No I'll wait for them to show
thier meager selves.......
In the meantime ......I'll move on
and let them catch up to me......to me
Today.....today I'll spend
my time contemplating the warming
winds in spring forests......
Stop looking back .....and forward too
Smell the scent of dying winter.......
and touch the beauty of
life....of life.
The gods can save all the questions
for those desperate enough to
need them......
more than I do.

Beuatiful, and ironically sometimes when we stop looking for the answers within, and enjoy the warming wind in the moment, the answers may show up. I am always looking for answers, so this poem was soothing and beautiful. :)

Paradise 7 , Thanks so much , sometimes we just have to " let it all go " far too many of those we talk to each day are just too tightly wrapped up. Thats just not a good thing. Be well and Smile!

Hmmm... live in the moment without pain will be great. But if I have to live in the moment with great burdening wounded heart, let winter fairy frozen me to numb, I think. :)

Beautiful, Father. But sad. I hope you have great time there.
