Thoughts and Words

No City Noise, Just Peace

Find some peace, no matter where you live…

Birmingham Central Canal, in the heart of the city

No City Noise, Just Nature

Sometimes all we need is just a little bit of nature to soothe the soul. A moment of nature, can help rejuvenate your mind and make you think more clearly. Even myself, I live in a busy city. This can cause much stress, when in the rush hour, but a moment in a park, a walk or a visit on transport to a forest can really help you feel better. And then you are ready to take on the world again. 

This week I aim to go to more natural spaces, but still love the little gems in Birmingham, such as the Peace Gardens.

My List (Bucket)

Believe and it will happen

Wondering what to do on the list has next? Can I EVER complete my bucket list? I am getting swept away into the daily chores, work, bills again? I think I need to re-plan my goals once more and remember to put my list on a wall or somewhere I CAN SEE this. Possibly on the door – Front door! This I am going to do today!

Step 1… leave list of things I would like to do (now and future, simple and complicated, no cost – or expensive)  – on the front door. My bucket list contains really silly things such as dancing in the park – to more complex going to Sidney, Australia. A reminder each day of the things I would like to do. From going to a local exhibition, going to France, Devon, buying a new teapot and so on! Remembering SMALL STEPS, as I realise I cannot afford everything in one go, but just want to make sure I don’t forget these dreams. 

small steps

POEM…

I see the little memories of lands far distant now

Movement of days, DWELL DEEPER

They rise and fall as they lift my soul to happiness

turning forever to a point of realistic truth

EXCEPTANCE that I am not perfect,

healthy, or an idealistic version of comfort.

For what you see, IS A FORM OF PHOTOGRAPHS.

Lists of dreams, 

Never forget those dreams you once had

The Laden Path

The Laden Path

Happiness
Imagine sitting here and the world standing still – just for YOU I took this photograph at the National Trust

Your beautiful quiet place
Breathtakingly beautiful and serene

This quiet place
I was composed
I was for one moment still
As I gathered all I could from sight
I tried to remember every tree
Every blade of grass

Every second of the dragonfly that flew past my hair
I am in sanctuary

I walked along a beautifully laden path, that reflected lights and scent form the spring flora, and fern. This beautiful place, listed in the National Trust, gave me solace and a chance to unwind, to breathe my thoughts and create some reflective writing. While sitting in a peaceful area, I noticed a building, small and round with a thatched roof. Beautiful and calm, I sat and wrote.

A wonderful Memory

This beach is in Dorset. I visited here a year ago but the memory still exists in my head. My foot clearly in shot, taking a picture of the wonderful soft waves. A wonderful memory. Calming and gentle waves and time for me to think about the important things in life. NOT THE THINGS THAT DO NOT MATTER! I thought about myself for a change, my inner needs and my worries. My strengths and my weaknesses. it made me think more clear.

The Tale of the Forest Girl

The Tale of the Forest Girl

Link to my Spells page: Spells and Magical Tales

Tell you a tale
Of a Livinia
She roamed the land
Looking for magic and spells in a book of family traditions
But what she found, was not silly folk law
But real life stories of untold magic, curses and future readings
This she kept hidden, a secret it would be
Until she grew too old to keep its secrets hidden anymore
Then she passed her secrets on
Just like her grandmother, and THEN…

She truly understood how small she was, in a land of such amazing beautiful creatures. For it is the creatures that allow us to be here. From tat moment Livi respected all the livening beings in the world. And the secret lived through her body, mind and spirit.

Little Bracelet of Emerald Leaves

Little bracelet of emerald leaves
Gilded gold forget-me-nots that are entangled beneath my moss tears,
Of a time where we sat among broken twigs, around my feet submerged in the earth’s giving powers.
Hidden dens and flower towers.
And there…… lay the perfect innocent tree,
that built houses and made the fires,
that built the diamonds,
that scraped against the static walls the humans created. Only to make engravings of lost letters and untold secrets.
But I remain in my bed of leaves and tears, my forget-me-not rings, my wheeled wooden carts of flowers. But I have my powerful mind . Hidden untold, My gypsy carriage will guide me to a land of hope and happiness. And along the way I will visit once more, my emerald forest.
