Although the name of this blog might give the impression it will be filled with positive and calming reading the reader may find this is not always the case. I make no apologies for this.

I believe experiencing the whole range of emotions, both those considered negative and those considered to be positive are a big part in what makes us human.
Acknowledging and expressing those feelings in an appropriate way makes us healthy humans.
You will find the gamut of emotions expressed in my works on this blog. I hope they encourage the reader to acknowledge their own feelings both positive and negative.

If only we would listen...

Another piece from my past. A reflection on what we might learn if we just listened to the universe with open hearts and minds.

If only we would listen


The mantle of power is passed

Through the ages
A burden to some
A responsibility to bear
Marching through the journey of life
Dispensing knowledge and hope
Teaching others to care

Visions of all that’s been
And all that’s yet to come
The wisdom of our ancestors
Shared with zest and zeal
To any and all who open their hearts
Those who want to be real

Listen to the whispering winds
Echoes from the oceans
Power comes from many paths
Oft seldom understood
Destiny weaves a tangled web
Of fine and sticky threads
There is much to learn
If only we’d listen when we should

  1. Beautiful Helen - and oh so very true.

    Any form of writing which brings peace to the writer ultimately brings healing- sometimes after a detour or two on the way.

    Lovely post.
    Love and hugs,
