That Special Gift : 'Contentment.'

Updated on March 1, 2013

Acrostic : Contentment.

Source

Contentment so sweet

Over each hill ;a heart so lifted

Never to be held captive again

True love so courageously deserved

Each day a new journey,a new wonder

Never again to be bound in chains

Those tight linked chains finally obliterated to the chambers of no return

My heart and soul sing;I feel,I absorb,the cascading wondrous world of knowing we belong

Eternal happiness;a world to share

Never again to be cast away

To love,to care, to be so contented.

Haiku : Each Wondrous Moment.

Source

Carefree and flowing

My heart and soul I embrace

Each wondrous moment.

Rictameter : Content.

Source

Content

Is each sweet bird

Each dewdrop a-twinkling

Children playing,new lambs bleating

My world today serenaded by love

Caressing ,absorbing moonlight

Dancing with twinkling stars

How my heart loves

Content.

Rhyme : Hearts So True.

Source

A world of contentment

A heart so free

Flying to the heavens

A wondrous bliss to be

x

An ebb and flow of love

A tide surmounting

I instinctively absorb

My heart freely singing.

x

I open each eager eye

And absorb each wonder

My inner being caresses

Never been happier.

x

The calling of life's wind

I no longer do dread

So much joy so much beauty

I sleep sweetly in my bed.


Freeverse : Springtime.

Source

My heavenly awe

in the spring time breeze

will awake from a golden deep slumber.

Oh how I ignite a love so fresh

so new

so treasured

so precious.

The magical wonder

of each new born lamb;

each budding Daffodil

each Snowdrop

sweet heads droop in

an almost

virginal purity.

New days

new beauty

new births

to be protected

to be guided

to be so sweetly

loved and encouraged

softly but surely

to survive in the world.

Each new born lamb playing

each new bud opening

each new sunrise promising

So contented my world.




Freeverse : Summertime.

Source

The summer sun

warms

the deep pride

in my heart.

To absorb each

summertime lesson

to guide each newborn truth.

The sea will magnetically draw

out

your longings

your worth.

Each ebb and flow

to strengthen

the love in my heart

a love of oneself

accepted and absorbed

in the summer sun.

So contented my world.



Freeverse : Autumntime.

Source

Contentment

like the

Autumn-time breeze;

a time

of contemplation

each horizon so golden.

To bask in the wonder

of this life of mine;

to wistful anticipation

to each caressing joy

I savour

I absorb

and

I share.

So contented my world.

Freeverse : Wintertime.

Source

Finally in

wintertime's instinct

a force so strong

a virginal awareness

of a beauty from within.

the snows softly cover

the eagerness

of life's paths;

A life now lived

each moment caressed

The winter winds

refresh

but never destroy

the eagerness

in each

and

every wonderful

and

whole hearted

jewel of love.

A love

as fresh

as each snowflake

and as strong

as winter's charm.

So contented my world.

      All those different types of poems in one place, by one person...you truly are amazing! "An ebb and flow of love"...I have to admit that pretty much sums it up Eddy. We 'flow' with what comes as long as our love is alive.

      Voted up, useful, awesome, and beautiful.

      "What more could please the soul than to walk free and know no superior."

      When I think of contentment I think of that line.

      Look at all the comments! You are loved by many here on HP and I have no trouble understanding why.

      Just the other day at yoga - we were to set an intention - a one word intention - of what we'd like to invite into our lives..

      Guess what my one word was?
