The Healing of the Pause

In the hustle and the bustle,

And all the noise of your life –

The answers to your questions

Never ever come to light.

Hear the whispers of the wind

In the struggle and the strife?ThehealingPause

Feel the ripple of the waves,

Or the rustle of your mind?

Stop reacting to the racket.

They don’t own you –

You’re in charge.

Choose to listen to the peace.

Choose to shut it all out.

Sense the freedom of release,

Sense the sway of the rhythm.

As there’s a message in a bottle.

There’s a song in that sound.

Still the madness

For a moment.

Heed the calmness

To be found.

The key is in the silence.thehealingofthe pause

Let go and lose yourself.

Be open to the remedy.

Be present just this once.

The cure is in your range.

Inhale the breadth of this instant

Receive the healing of the pause.

The Quality Of Your Breath

Inspired by Q is for Quality Not Quantity In Anything You Do – DALAI LAMA -LIVE ONE DAY AT A TIME AND MAKE IT A MASTERPIECE

qualitynotquantityquality

Too much, yet never enough.

Overkill.

Too little, survival is threatened.

Extinction.

Running on empty, yet going nowhere.

Consumed.

Too slow, almost standing still.

Boredom.

Too many choices, overwhelming.

Too few, unmotivating.

Too many people, but few you can count on.

Lost.

Too few, but not for long.

Measure twice, cut once.

Value in moderation.

The quality of your breath.

Go with the flow, but don’t follow the crowd

The path of least resistance, but stay on The Path

Seasons of change, stay with the times

Holding on, letting go

The winds are howling, don’t let go of who you are

open your arms to change, but don't let go of who you are

THE IMPOSSIBLE – A POEM BY DARLENE WIGGERS

 

Anything is possible

You just have to believe

When everything lines up

It’s easy to achieve

 

Removing limitations

Adjusting expectations

Past, present, future

Is just an illusion of time

 

Forgiving and forgetting

Vulnerability with an open mind

Let loose and see where it takes you

Just give it a try

 

Positivity flows in the right direction

The plan includes unexpected purposes

Turning balanced changes into small miracles

The impossible CAN be in the future!

The Sequel – A Poem by Darlene Wiggers

Words unspoken

Thoughts that abound

Emotions are reeling

The healing that hurts

 

Once upon a time

Happily ever after

The sequel is ending

A new story begins

 

Pain and suffering

Humour that heals

The heart is aching

Searching for hope

 

Life is for living,

Laughing, loving, and forgiving

Not judging and regretting

But understanding and appreciating

The Pond of Everlasting Hope

I have always liked poetry, both the reading of it and the writing of it. Here is one written by my younger self, at age 18.

 

The Pond of Everlasting Hope – a poem by Darlene Novak

In the back of the yard

Exists a pond, a man-made pond.IMG_0473

And in the summer

The pond was alive;

Flowers in bloomIMG_0581

Birds in tune

And the fish – yes – the goldfish

– So many together

So bound, forever

 

And then autumn fell

And the flowers were gone.

The birds, they too, flew away.

IMG_0252

Honk! Honk!

The goldfish removed

To an indoor pond

To safety, to warmth

But a temporary home

All of them secure

To carry on the tradition.

 

All of them? – No, not all,

All, except two

Two which could not have been caught.

Two which would not be caught.

Although it was tried again and again

The two remained in the pond.

All said, they would dieIMG_0860

All said, they would not – make it.

But the two remained in the pond.

 

Some time has passed since that autumn day

And many cold days have come

Some rain has fallen

And snow has stormed

Hiding the pond from all’s view

IMG_1064

So many footprints!

All are fine, though rain still falls

The two are still in the pond

-Presumably dead, though no one will know

Until the breaking of ice.

 

The time has come

For the sun to shine.

The ice is beginning to melt

Slowly, though,

The process takes time

But through warmth, it will become clear.

The birds have returned; the flowers in bloom

Through faith, the two have survived

And one day soon, the others will join them.

God has brought them new life.

Inspired by The Road Not Taken – A Poem by Robert Frost

When reflecting on forks in the road of life don’t wonder – what would have happened if…? Rather carefully consider your options, perhaps consult with others, make a decision and stand by it with no regrets.
