The Ebbing and Flowing Of My Heart.

Updated on April 17, 2014

Hello one and all well this past week has been hectic to say the least but so glad to be back today.

Last week I had two dentist appointments in the Seaside town of Aberystwyth so as well as the obvious I used the time to also take a walk along the promenade and beach.

Today's song choice is 'Harbwr Diogel' (Safe Harbour) sung by Elin Fflur.

I hope you enjoy.

A haven of thoughts

A time of contemplation

A heart oh so free.

Source
Source

Treasured

The tides of life

Heartfelt and so wondrous

Emotional vibes cascading

Trepidation cast aside forever

In its place so precious a life

A pride oh so cherished

Each ebb and flow

Treasured.




Source

Flowing and soothing

A heart buoyant and so true

A yearning answered.

Source
Source

In storms of life

you are my haven;

In each pain

you are my solace;

each ebb and flow

search through

each weathered heart

a soul so young yet so old;

wisdom flows

and

brings solace

into each harbour

of truth and of love;

when words are not enough

to soothe

and to wash away

those doubts of old

into your arms I bask in sweet radiance;

I believe in love songs

I treasure that knowledge

which

makes my heartbeat

in unconditional acceptance;

I return into your safe haven

When the winds blow

the flag waves

your strength

your worth

bring me back

each roused instinct

brings me back

into your arms;

safely

embracing

your bosom.

I cannot escape

do not wish

to escape

from your sweet haven

in the midst of life's storms.





Source

Caress

Each new love song

Sing to your heart's content

Tell the world of your true blessings

Allow each one to swell to the heavens

Angels of love will surround you

That ebbing and flowing

Is yours so true

Caress.



Source
Source

A soul so young

Yet a wisdom oh so old

Embracing this life.

Source

A collage of truth

Oh such magical musings

Flowing so freely.

Historic moments

A tugging of those heartstrings

Moments so precious.

The picture above brought back so many wonderful memories as this is where in 2001 I began working with The Youth Offending Team and our offices were on the second floor .

I made many friends here and left Aberystwyth in 2002 to run a Bail Hostel for Young Offenders three miles from where I live now and I worked there for six years.

Great memories !!!

      I do a meditation with the waves gentling coming and going on the sand at my feet. I am sure my next one will be joyously joined by this gentle caress of prose and visuals from you this day. It is now in my heart.
