Off To Sleep

Updated on March 17, 2016

Time To Pray

I have turned my day around

Found new energy I never knew I had

Welcoming all the good in my life

Building a solid base

When problems do come my way

I handle them with care and finesse

Constantly I dream a new dream

Searching for people and ideas I believe in

Taking all my skills and talent

Creating a world of joy

Finding loyal support by my wife

Turning on my creativity switch

Leaving it on like a night light

To see and guide me through

Learning using all my sensors

Using them like speakers to amplify

Only the most beautiful things in life

I am constantly sifting through

Like a gardener who pulls out the smallest rocks and weeds

Turning over the soil

Revealing the rich dark earth

Opportunties are endless

More living

Believing in the smallest of ideas

To make life easier and more exciting

So we all can go grand

In our own way and time

Amazed how sweet it is

Juicier than the best watermellon

Constantly moving like a conveyor belt

Waiting for your next ride

I love life so much

That has become my wonderful party

      DDE There are so many things to talk about and discover. As we reveal all the goodness in people we will find endless love. Thank you for reading and commenting. Your kind words are much appreciated. MsDora People like you in my life bring out a special joy that keeps giving around the clock. If I listen closely the words will just flow. I can't say enough about the lovely friendships that have helped me, supported me, listened to me even when I wasn't sure where I was going or where I would end up. Thank you for your time . Life gets so busy I am very grateful for all the special words from both of you. I want you to know I try to express it in my writings. So you help me think and find my inner core.

      Gypsy Rose Lee Having friends like you that enjoy making life not just a series of endless hum drum days and boring nights but incredible mornings, interesting afternoons and ending with outstanding evenings that wind down only to be picked up tomorrow with more enthusiasm and excitement. Sharing with other people endless fun. Thank you so much. We are in for six inches of snow one last guest appearance by old man winter. Just when we thought the cold weather was gone.

      Jodah All my life I have watched most people focus on bad news and I cringe. Why don't they see all the good in the world and enjoy and share that instead. I have heard over and over bad news sells. As I read the headlines I have to agree. People have to change their attitudes and views before change happens. Seeing you come back for more hubs helps me light my fire. Thank you for reading and sharing. The Stages Of Me I keep on trying to think of ways to express what I feel and think in any way possible. Sometimes it works other times I lose the reader. Hopefully with more practice and writing I can take the reader on a journey as close as I can to living my life. I appreciate your beautiful words and encouragement. Thank you so much.

      Dream On

      You are a very visual writer, I felt I was in this poem watching you as you expressed your love for your wife and writing. Many blessings to you as you write. :)

      RJ Schwartz There are so many things that constantly take place every day. We make choices and see what we want to see. With creativity and optimism we can change the things we don't like and enjoy all the things that make life great. Thank you for reading and sharing.
