The Moon- Stream of Consciousness Saturday #SoCS

223181955_10208906950028517_5122972416121968609_n

The path you walk

May seem confusing, 

Full of insecurities

And uncertainties.

You may feel

Lost on your journey,

As if wandering

In the dark of night,

Not sure of where

You should be going.

But worry not,

For the Moon will

Light your path,

Providing the clarity

And understanding

Your intuition needs

To guide your way

Through the darkness.

Use its gentle light

To walk your path,

And take your steps

Bravely towards

Your hopes and dreams.

Endings and Beginnings – Stream of Consciousness Saturday #SoCS #Poem

 

The ending of something

Often is saddening,

Bringing with it

Feelings of loss

That we think

Will never go away.

But we are all stories,

And stories never

Truly ever end.

As one story ends

Another story begins,

Just as one door closes

And another door opens,

Revealing to us new beginnings.

Embrace the ending

And cherish the memories

It gives you while

You embrace and

Embark on

The beginning of

Your new story.

The Journey – Stream Of Consciousness Saturday #SoCS

socs-badge-2019-2020

 

Dreams are what

Help define us.

Help give us purpose.

Help us to be

Who we want to be.

Don’t let your dreams

Fall by the wayside.

Dream your dreams.

Become who you want to be.

The road may not be easy,

And may be long,

But always remember,

The journey of a thousand miles

Begins with a single step.

So take that first step

And begin your journey.

Where You Go – Stream of Consciousness Saturday #SoCS

stream-of-consciousness-saturday-2018-19

 

 

Where you go

And what you do

Is entirely

Up to you.

Worry not

What others

Might think.

It’s your choice,

So choose.

It’s your life;

Live it.

It’s your story;

Write it.

The Role To Play – Stream of Consciousness Saturday #SoCS

stream-of-consciousness-saturday-2018-19

 

 

A great man once said

That all the world

Is a stage

And the men and women

Are merely players.

As I make my way

Through this great play

We call Life

I have yet to find

The role that

I am meant to play.

But I will continue

To roll along

Like a stone

Until I find

My starring role.

Give & Get – Stream of Consciousness Saturday #SoCS #poem

socsbadge2016-17

 

Give it your all

No matter how small.

Give it your best shot

And you’ll get a lot.

Don’t fear failure;

Try and try again. Success will come

Success will come

when you put all your

heart into all that you do.

You get what you’ve given,

so give with your heart

and get what you’re due.

Almost – Stream of Consciousness Saturday #SoCS #poem #poetry

Reblogging this old poem I did in honor of #worldpoetryday

Jeanne Owens, author

socs-badge

I almost had it

I could feel it there

Tickling at my brain

Trying to get my attention

Trying to grow into something

And then came the darkness

And the burgeoning thought

The idea that had been forming

Was lost to Dreamland

If only – Stream of Consciousness Saturday #SoCS

socs-badge-2015

 

 

If Only

If only I hadn’t done that,

I think,  though I know

Not what I did.

If only I hadn’t said that,

I think, though I know

Not what I said.

What if I had done

something different?

What if I had behaved

Another way?

Would things be different?

Would you still

Be here with me, then?

A Cat In Brazil – National Limerick Day #LimerickDay #poetry

Seeing as today is #LimerickDay, I thought I would share a silly limerick I wrote a long time ago when I was a kid.

 

There once was cat in Brazil

Who smelled chicken cooking on a grill.

He jumped and landed on the roof,

With an “oof”,

Slid down, and missed the grill.
