Do keep writing
This is easier said than done
Sometimes I get upset and wonder
If it is all worth while
To wait or to write
To sigh or to persevere
And then I say to myself
Hang on! All is fine!
And indeed things are fine and going well
After all it is not the people who keeps this blog going
But readers as well as myself who gets reminded to put in
A word or two and then all is well
Like now and this moment in time
Thank God all is well!
Flows through every terrain
Through the centuries:
as geological plates shift
as seasons change
A river’s path follows suit
Aquatic lifeform flourishes silently within its flow
The toughest and sharpest of rocks get smoothed
by the river’s consistent gushing
Yet not rushing
Contributing to nature’s humble beauty
at every bend of its meandering journey
Committed to one destination – the ocean
And so it is
That I aspire to be – A River.
Talk about writing and one gets all worked up
simply because writing does seem more a chore
pleasant though it can be
rather than an exciting enterprise
one that makes all things joyful
causing one to think, to smile and to ponder. . .
Why is writing a chore
when you have been gifted
To use your many gifts is no chore
If you can try to see it as one of service
Talk about being vigilant,
I am rather disappointed in some ways.
Why do you say this?
I have been coming to the website hoping to find
a post or two, perhaps an article or more
But it is not to be . . .
We have so many writers
but not everyone writes
and that includes
I too am guilty.
This post simply talks about the feelings I have this morning and nothing more
And feelings, people say, are not totally reliable. . .
Still it is good to express myself and thus it gives me a chance to write.
I remember two white-bellied sea eagles
Leap singing from the forest deep
Into the spangled sea and sky
And I longed to capture this in words
which slipped unheeding through my fingers
like sand, and I heard them say,
Your fate has changed – no longer
are you to stand aside and observe,
but leap singing from the dark
into the glittering gold forever blue

Thank God for Word Press.com
You folks make my life exciting
and somehow, one gets acquainted with fellow bloggers
