DEEPER CALL

I will reach higher;
If I happen to fall,
I will get up,
Dust myself off
And try again.

 

I will look farther;
If I don’t see at all,
I will grow still,
Quietly wait,
Carefully attend.

 

I will hope stronger;
Obey the deeper call
Of my own heart;
The soft voice of
My inward friend.

POSSIBILITIES

Possibilities come our way each day;
Are you watching for them?
No one really knows how they’ll appear
Or what they’ll look like.

 

Sometimes, they hide in comments made by friends;
Are you listening for them?
Subtle words form riddles and puzzles
That want to be solved.

 

Opportunities will stand in plain view;
Are you welcoming them?
They love to be noticed and embraced
So that you succeed.

BEAUTIFUL THINGS

We see and hear so many things
That violate and trouble our souls;
It’s time for us to step away
For refreshment that heals all our woes.

 

 

Stop to consider the beauty
That surrounds and greets us each day:
Smiling faces, music and love;
Sights and sounds to cheer in every way.

 

 
Plains and mountains, deserts and hills;
Fragrances from blossoms so sweet;
Sunshine or rain, clouds and blue sky;
Cold winters, spring warm and summer heat.

 

 

Things that injure seem plentiful;
Out numbering all that is right
But if we pay close attention,
We’ll find beautiful things that delight.
