Good Morning Monday~My Road. My Path. My Picnic.

Good Morning Monday!!

I’ve walked along the road to nowhere
Each step I take a heavy lift
For my memories and thoughts weigh me down from time to time
Through the openings I learn to sift

The flours that bake the breads are turned
Toss the ingredients to make the mix
Bake the life with the heat on high
Random words and rhymes give me my kicks

My road is a road no one else can go
The tranquility no one else will know
My recipe is a secret just for me
The dough will rise and my footsteps will be

This path brings health and food and wealth
Colors are vibrant and my garden grows
I have my basket full of goodies
A picnic awaits as my little seeds are sown

Patience follows me down the turns and curves
With a skip in my step my goodies bounce
Once at my destination I unfold my blanket
And relish in my journeys gifts and my footstep counts

May your road bring you to your own destination 😀 A picnic for one; bountiful and rewarding xox

Good Morning Monday :) Smiles all smiles :)

Good morning Monday 🙂

Smiles all smiles
What is a day worth living without a smile?
Smiles bring good mornings
The sun has already kissed my skin
Garden seeds germinate and bears come out from once they did hibernate
Bugs and more bugs and little bites when they come out at night
Sow the seeds of life
Sustain all that can be sustained
Breathe the blossoms’ sweet scents and all the rest

elf-596155_1280Smiles all smiles 🙂

Smile and get a smile back just for you
A laugh, a chuckle
I can’t wait to pick blackberries and fill the bucket
The summer breeze makes me want to be outside all day
A seat up front to watch the veggies grow
Hydrate and pollinate
A big hug for a tree
A mindfulness of what is oh so green
Smile with nature

Smiles all smiles 🙂

Happy Monday 🙂

Humanity. Where are we?

What do these words mean to you?

Freedom
Peace
Health
Justice
War
Police
Resource
Corruption
Privacy
Lie

Humanity. Where are we?

anonymous-275868_1280Where are we right now? That’s a scary question. Looking at all the advances, technologies, leaps and bounds we have made, we should be proud… right? We should be safe. We should see hope for the future.

How do you feel?

These words tell a story. A story of how we came to be at this very moment. This moment when our food is being tainted and our water is being wasted. Places that are drying up into a clump of dust where there should be water. People who are dying at a young age with a rifle strapped to their back and all the while the small percentage of all the richest people in the world become even richer in a single swoop and then a family dies of starvation. Then another, and another.

Justice? What is justice?

When people who are meant to keep us safe start killing the innocent when he clearly told everyone that he could not breathe. How can we feel safe? When secret police are knocking at our doors because we love the environment and do not support pipelines that destroy our lands. There is no such thing as fresh clean air and chem-trails line our skies all the while the drug lines pile high as the rippers rage.

Is there a way for us to save ourselves from this?

man-438076_1280 protest-438095_1280

When the words that are meant to keep us content are the words that scare us most.

So what that we have exceeded expectations. How many consequences will we all have to face when it all goes down? Riots fill streets and the activists speak up and finally more people are reached.

But is it enough? We still need support.

So stand up and let it be real. Be proud of that sign and hold it up high for we are NOT going down without a fight. Together we are united and if a letter or a vote or a high pitched note reaches just one more ear let us all cheer.

Take any action you can whether it be a post, a conversation, a scream or a simple recommendation to your fellow man. Let freedom and peace mean what they mean and then maybe we can please ask for our sacred vocabulary back!

protest-464616_1280

The weather is changing and the earth is crying out her cries that we are all taking too much and we all know what that means for us. Volcanos exploding and snow covered mountains that kill because the ground begins to shake. Will this island survive the big quake?

These are all questions I ask myself when I think about the definitions we live by. By and by the rivers rise and cars are swept away and our human rights lie in the hands of a madman.

Can you please help me stop this nonsense today? Share. Unite. Stand together.

I want those words to make sense again and be able to share the wonderful stories with my family and friends and even someday; my children. I want to tell them of the battles we won when we rose together and fought for each other as if we were one.

The lies and corruption and the police and the wars will unravel into nothingness and we will be healthy and whole once more.

Stop Harper. Stop Monsanto. Stop BIG PHARMA. Stop the pipelines. Stop the pollution. Stop the chemicals. Stop the killing. Stop the wars. Stop them all.

We live here and I for one am sick of this sh*@T!!

Good Morning Monday~Choices

~Good Morning Monday~

We all have a choice to leave
We all have a choice to stay
We all have a choice to be silent
We all must choose what to say

Some of our choices involve pride
Some of our choices take strength
Some of our choices are instant
And some of our choices have great lengths

option-112225_1280

A choice may have a consequence
A choice may have a heavy weight
A choice may include a sacrifice
A choice to open or close the gates

Many choices have compromise
Many choices are extremely hard
If choices were meant to be easy
The answers would be in the cards

So choose your circles wisely
For our lives depend on our choices
The choices we make are ours to keep
We must listen to our little conscious voices

yes-238371_1280 yes-238372_1280 yes-238373_1280

Whatever it is you choose, may it bring you happiness and love xox
 

 

 

Good Morning Monday: Spring!

~It sure is a good morning Monday 🙂 Spring!!

The birds chirp away and the sun seems as though it’s here to stay
Each morning the bright sky sings
The melody of the vibrant rays match the songs of the song birds

Awake to a feeling of life and purpose
The flowers sway in the wind and dance to the soft voices of nature
Spring seems like summer and life comes out of the ground

The seeds have been planted and the earth now moves to breathe new life
A baby born in each and every inch of rich soil
Moisture from winter warms to a temperature so perfect; its scent so fresh

Spring and summer collide and mixtures of elements combine together
How are we so fortunate for this fine weather?
Our paradise lush and blooming just for us

Let us welcome the early stages of summer and bask in this greatness
Let our gratitude match the songs of the sun, the earth and the lovely song birds xox

Have a beautiful day on this; a beautiful Monday 😀

Good Morning Beautiful! :)

Yes I am talking to you 🙂 Good morning beautiful!!

I just want to say how beautiful you are today
And every day for that matter
So don’t you listen to that chatter

The voice inside that keeps you shy
The silly useless self doubt
Those people who always try and figure you out

It doesn’t matter what day, what they say or if you happen to be gay
You are beautiful in every way xo

I may not know you or see your face
We may never cross paths or be in the same space
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to understand
It doesn’t matter if you are a woman or a man

You are beautiful!! 😀

It doesn’t matter what you have done
You may be weathered from the bright sun
You may have already heard this today
But you are beautiful I must say

Maybe you don’t hear it enough
So here’s a hit of the really good stuff
You may not feel this way…

BUT

You are beautiful 🙂 I just wanted to say 🙂

I hope you have a beautiful day!

Love

Good Morning Monday! Cherish this Life xo

horses-482594_1280~Good Morning Monday!~

I want to try harder to cherish this life
Each and every breath inhaled with delight
I am so grateful for air and if it vanished
so would my sight

 

 

I shall not take for granted my “necessities”
If my house burns down I know where my priorities would be
To spread a message that all will foresee

How do we do what we love and love what we do?
Find a special path that will guide us straight through
Willing to live with old privileges renewed

There is always a way I always say
The violins and cellos play
Bring in the harmony’s sweet display

So I will not blind my only sight
I will inhale each breath with pure delight
Because I want to try harder to cherish this life xo

What Would We do? In the Dark and Hidden from Technology

It’s amazing how many things you can miss while taking a short break from social media. After only two weeks of non-stop business learning at UVic, I’ve come back a few times to discover that some blue and black dress has blown up on the internet setting people into a frenzy because it actually looks white and gold. Just before that there was a blogging uproar and the blogosphere turned upside down after two amazing blogs set some impressive and apparently overpowering records. I feel like I’m out of loop already!

Free verse and my poetic mind. I can’t believe the speed of these times… there’s no rewind.

A blackout?

Numbers pile up as statistics run wild and technology rapidly increases faster than babies are born and all the while I sit here in a little corner of the interwebs and wonder to myself…

What would happen if it all just disappeared?

What would we do??

We would be in the dark and hidden from technology.

Maybe it’s because I’m really upset that Revolution was cancelled, but I have dreams of the power going out for good and finally being “off-grid” officially and forever.

If it actually happened we could totally bring back those tin can string telephones and have to walk miles speak-238488_1280just to say hello to people and friends in the same town. We would never know where anyone was anymore so we would have to come together once again and send telegrams and bring back horse carriages and forget about cars…

*Day Dreamers*

Unfortunately there would be no heat in winter. That would suck… but that’s OK because we would just burn our furniture and cars. We could live in huts in the forest and let all the plant life take over the cities and we would no longer see the concrete jungle…

The stars would be brighter.

Would time melt away?

Sometimes my mind goes crazy.
