Day is Done – #poetry #NaPoWriMo

Night Owl Poetry - Dorinda Duclos


Fire sizzles against waters, vast
A mere reflection of the past

Day goes by, again, returns
Still the fire, there, does burn

***

Sleep now, in the evening glow
This final resting place, you go

So sad we can’t forever stay
Why must it always be this way?

***

When time reminds us, day is done
And with the earth, we become one

Much like the fire that leaves the sky
We will, at last, need say goodbye

Author’s Note: I wrote this poem with a heavy heart. There has been so much sadness this past year or so, and still, it continues. My heart goes out to all who lost loved ones… ❤

“I must have a dark side also if I am to be whole.” Carl Jung

Why Do We?

That we might let go the points of our past compass, ever exposed to fleeting glimpses of the real which speak loudly into the rusted patterns of our lives, interrupting calcified thoughts no longer valid. Ever exposed to fleeting glimpses of the real…

Daily Dose for the Mind

Be Inspired..!!

Do you often feel lonely at work or in school? Perhaps your heart is closed off to those around you.
“I don’t get her.” “I’m better than her.” “We’re on different wavelengths.” If you think this way, how could you not be lonely? Open your heart, and have a cup of coffee with her. You will soon see that she is not that different from you. When you open up about your hurt and sorrow, I feel grateful that you’ve turned to me for support. It’s as though I am meeting you in the most sacred chamber of your heart.

Politicians always say what sounds good. But what they say does not always resonate with us because their words are coming from their head, not from their heart. Speak from your heart, which is tender, simple, and true. People will understand you, and like you. If you think you are…
