Gratitude

Are we grateful for what we’ve been given right now
For the excellence that lies all about
Are we focussed on good and not upon bad
Are we willing to sing and to shout
About even the tiniest littlest thing
That brings fortune and favour our way
Be it the sun in the sky or the birds on the wing
Or the wonder that’s filling today

Be it a stranger’s kind word or a hug from a friend
A meal on the table at night
A song or a dance, a smile or a glance
Whatever brings in joy and delight
Be it a nudge in our thoughts that brings in relief
For even a second or less
To refresh and renew everything that we do
With gratitude and heart filled thankfulness

For to dwell on these things that may not seem big
Or even seem what we are owed
Is to lift up our spirit, to freshen our souls
With appreciation and love thus bestowed
And thus we go hence right into this day
With joy in our mind and not dread
With blessing abundant at the fore of our thoughts
With a glow and lighter step in our tread.

Wonder

I wonder as I wander
What wonders I will see
A wandering in wonderment
Midst wonderful country
A wonderwork to wonder on
Whilst wandering about
For a wonder, it’s a wonderland
Without a shade of doubt!

Have A Colourful Day

Don’t be glum but be cheerful
Don’t be sad. Be happy
Wear a smile on your face
To remove misery
And with a hop, skip and jump
In your step on the way
Have a focus on grateful
For bright colourful days!

Childlike Eyes

Let’s look and see with childlike eyes
Regard for one more time
And view the world the way we once
Saw everything sublime
When all was bright and brilliant
And everything was new
The simplest thing gave such delight
Enchanted senses too

The joy of seeing snowflakes fall
Or robins in the tree
The love of getting our first glimpse
Of waves down by the sea
The wildest buzz and marvel of
Clouds flying in the blue
The kick of visions wonderful
Where webs were laced in dew

Let’s gaze upon the butterfly
Emerging from cocoon
Or lightning bolt streak cross the sky
See changing shape of moon
Light up our faces one more time
Like young eyes shine brightly
Lest else the mist of time obscures
Visual acuity

Childlike Eyes

Open Your Eyes

Open your eyes!  Open your eyes!
Take a close look around.
See the minutia, hidden miracles
What else can be found?

Be impressed and inspired
Be astonished, amazed.
Stand in awe and in wonder
But don’t ever be phased!

Absorb all the good
And stand in the light
To marvel and shout out
Don’t see the black, see pure white!

Look for the harmonies
See peace, see blue skies
With the heart of a child
Daily open your eyes

 

Nature’s Perfection

I see the rose
Neatly folded swathes of petals
Cocooning a central core
Wrapping delicately
To release a visual splendour

I see the new born baby
Always a miracle
In innocence and sweetness
Soft and gentle
Beauty in its purest form

I see the starlit sky
A million wishes to be made
Sparkling vestibules of light
Skating across the galaxy
Against the azure haze

I see the spec of sand
Amidst the beach
White grains of freedom
As nature’s gate
To the ocean’s wide

I see all these
Visions of excellence
Images of brilliance in awe and wonder
Complete and unflawed
Revealing nature’s perfection
