Two sides

Savvy Raj

Interestingly…

I came across both these images almost in the span of a single day!

Like the mirror has two faces

Everything that is , is not all

There are two sides

To everything

That exists…

What I pay attention

Grows with conviction

What I wish to disown

Diminishes to perish.

As this tree of life

Is taking roots

Growing branches

And shaping itself…

Yet the Choice

What to feed

And what to starve

The fate and future

Of two sides of my life

Solely rests with me.

Choices…

My Random Ramblings

They say that
Beggars can't be choosers
Choices are a luxury
An extravagance,
Denied to many.
Having a choice is great
It's better than no choices
But too many choices
Can't be a good thing
Is it just me?
Or does anyone else feel so?
Choices, if one too many,
Can be confusing
Selecting one becomes a chore.
When life provides choices,
Each one comes with a catch.
Every choice has consequences.
Sometimes, the price
Is too much to pay.
Choices mean nothing,
If you can't truly have,
What your heart yearns for.
In that case,
Choices are just a consolation prize
Which doesn't exactly make up
For all that you are missing.

forever into the unknown

Written in Blue Mercury

angels who lose faith
fall to the ground
and I have known
such an angel or two

when the sky breaks
apart and she cannot
go home I have known
such an angel or two

like the breeze she
and I have one choice
to remain still and die
or to travel forward

forever into the unknown
travel with me angel
so I won’t be alone
forever into the unknown

Pretending – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

“There is a price to pay for speaking the truth. There is a bigger price for living a lie.”   Cornel West

Pretending

There are some,
but few lines are straight,
we are two uneven halves,
and the wind whips nature
into new maps as rivers
carve bends that even turn
in on themselves while
the relentless ocean
ever wastes itself on
shoreline rocks,
but we become illusion
to satisfy demands,
we straighten lines and bends
offering opinions
that want to be heard,
presenting faces that
want to be seen,
living a deception of ourselves,
pretending to believe in the
straightness of lines.

Tuesday’s Thoughts!

Nuggets of Gold

For the first time I have been listening to a book by audio. I really wasn’t sure if I would like “reading” a book that way, but I am really enjoying it. The lady’s voice draws me in and I am so intrigued with the story.  Plus now I can “read” and do laundry at the same time!  Cook and “read” at the same time. So while nothing compares to an actual book that I can hold in my hand, this has been fun for something different! What new thing have you done lately?

Don’t forget that tomorrow is April Fools Day. Be on your guard. I have ones who keep me on my toes all the time, so I am used to being on my guard. May these quotes bring some sunshine your way today and please stay well, as we keep taking one day at a time!

I am a firm believer of things happening the way they were mean to happen.

Yesterday evening, the Dominican government shutdown all flights through April 30th. Jetblue was not able to accomodate me on the last emergency flight leaving to Costa Rica.

The United States Embassy asked all remaining Americans to find safe shelter to wait out the process. They implied any last emergency flights out of the country may be risky since they suspect several people with coronoavirus symptoms may be trying to escape the island in search of proper medical treatment.

Fifty plus doctors have tested positive. Dozens of police officer, too. Patient’s testing positive for coronavirus are thrown in an isolated room, where nurses and doctors are fearful of entering since there are no respirators or proper treatment available.

Taking advantage of the curfews and civil unrest, young thugs have taken to the streets…

Looking For Some Positive?

The View From Laura's Window

Sometimes, the best things in life come into focus when we stop and take time to notice the beauty around us. 

When problems arise, our first reaction to stress is usually to stress more. When life gets to the point that we forget about the things that are most important because of what’s demanding and seems important…that’s when we need to push pause and look up. 

I’ve never known panic to solve anything. Just because it’s a choice doesn’t mean it’s the right choice. 

What if our first instinct was to pray? 😀

Worry and anxiety can numb your mind. You won’t be able to focus on what’s right…what’s true.

Daily Prompts- One day, soon.

Keep it alive

I see countless branches, bare

Waiting for spring to put some buds

And leaves to cover their nakedness

It will happen when the time is right

Patience is an art we learn when we wait

For nature to act, changing winter into spring

The amount of time may vary every year

This year things may be difficult

Eerie and frightening, but spring will arrive

And flowers will bloom like always

Break out of the fearful and somber mood

Put a smile on your face while you wait

For the crisis to be over, for the world to right itself

In response to the following prompts;

3TC;

Time, Courtesy, Break

FOWC;

Amount

RDP;

Countless branches

Word of the day Challenge;
