Re: [lovingpurelove] Voicing love and gratitude
- Oh Polly, I knew you weren't posting, and wondered about you, thanks for
letting us know.
Also pleased to read that you are back and doing well. Your words of surgery
brought me back a few years ago when my life was so busy, running to
seminars, workshops, hospitals, and in the rush of it all, I went into the
hospital for surgery, not a major one, but it allows me that time to go
within to get back in touch with those flowing solitude wonders, and caught
me up with my inner soul. Even though my business suffered, my soul indeed
I agree it would be absolutely wonderful if all 9 of us wrote poems,
thoughts, encouragement's, stories or just simple words of hello, wouldn't it?
Being part of something is so glorious, such a powerful feeling of having a
group of those that we meet each day, to say hello, to chat and then run off
creating, working, enjoying and simply living.
The purity of love carries us all through our days.
- Polly, I know what you mean about "meant to do but
never had the time to do stuff." Happens to me all the
time. I trust your surgery went well and the healing
process is almost complete and that everyone around
you treated you like an empress. If not, they should
have. I'm beginning to think the more we treasure
ourselves, the more we are treasured. Of course, that
emotion has nothing to do with ego or I'm better than
you are syndromes. It's just that if we are our own
best friends, others will want to be a friend, too.
That glow of specialness seems to get warmer and
brighter when we discover within us the love bestowed
to us by our creator. And just like any energy source,
the more we fan the flames, the brighter it burns and
the more warmth we have to share. So share a hug or
two or three and know in spirit we're there with thee.
Yeah, I know but that was the only thing I could think
of to rhyme with with three. Glad to have you back up
and about. Love and Hugs to all, Karen

- Hi, Polly,
Hope your surgery went well and that you're feeling much better.
I'm sorry I haven't been able to contribute here much, though I really
enjoy everyone's inspiring thoughts and the Love that is so manifest
here. It's so important to have a place to share our insights into the
wonders of creation, a place where Love rules, and hearts are warmed by
such loving thoughts. After the holiday rush is over, I really hope to
be able to contribute more of my thoughts, perhaps a few of my poems.
Take care, and keep your Lamp burning brightly!
- No longer Fear
Come set down by me
and let me tell you a story
The waters were flowing... swiftly down the current
you stuck a foot in
smiled you did
a powering white wave roared toward you
out came your foot
gnashing and moaning
You wrapped your foot
with soft cloth
while watching the roaring
oh that pain in your eyes!
the waves whipping
on the rocks
you slowly removed your foot
from secure wrapped cloth
and placed it close to the edge
Oh, splashing water drops hit you between
You left it there to feel the dampness
drops, splashes, fun and laugher
were no longer afraid
Now there sets no
fear upon the heart
You place your foot
down deep in the sand
oh, a pebble ever so sharp
brought blood to the toes
You cried out
I will not touch you
I will not offer you my foot
yet....the sand stayed where it was
and glittered its wealth
and teased you
to play just one more time
oh! the warmth was
more than you toy to leave
could not tear away
No longer weary
a lot was within
which came from the dark past
of another life
no not this one at all
stay with the warmth
open the heart
for this is your
to meet you!
