Poetry Corner #16 – Sweet Sunrise Sublime

Awakening the world

My favourite time of day to write poems is very early in the morning or very late at night – when everything is much quieter around me.

I often dream of sitting in my ideal beach house writing poems on the ocean view balcony, whilst watching the sunrise or sunset – I plan to be doing this sometime in the future.

I therefore dedicate today’s poem to the dreams of tomorrow that I visualise today and what a wonderful feeling it truly is.

SWEET SUNRISE SUBLIME

The sun it rises,
glistening so bright,
it patiently waited,
goodbye to goodnight.

It’s warmth is tender,
a magical glow,
out to the horizon,
blue ocean below.

I stare at it softly,
with hypnotic eyes,
how blessed I am,
an amazing sunrise.

It gives me energy,
feelings of delight,
awakening the world,
happy and bright.

Thank you dear sunrise,
you make me feel good,
a whole day with you,
uplifts every mood.

No matter the weather,
you always shine
blue skies or rainbows,
sweet sunrise sublime.

Barrier You

Speak your truth

The most difficult barriers to break down, are the barriers you put up yourself, protecting you from rejection and from facing your most deepest fears. When you do this, you are masking who you really are, pretending that the outside truth matches your inner truth. When you do this, it creates a misalignment of who you really are with what you really feel.

Vulnerability is a strength, because it only speaks the truth. To forgive someone for their wrong doing, is a strength. To say “I love you” even though it may not be reciprocated, is a strength. To give without the expectation of a thank you, is a strength. To serve without receiving anything in return, is a strength.

Hearts that live by the above are stronger than no other, they are wholesome and true.

I am not that strong yet, but I guess there is so much strength in recognising that and admitting it.

Speak your truth, speak your heart and let those inner barriers down. Go on, I know you can do it.

Lots of love to you today, Clarabelle

Monday Morning Blues?

you deserve to experience the best of opportunities out there

I can honestly say, I haven’t had the Monday Morning Blues for a good few years now and I never want to have them in the future either.

I remember, in my much younger days, getting these feelings, which often started on the Sunday evening!

I know, most of you can relate to those feelings of ‘dread’ going into a job that, for your own reasons, didn’t feel right.

I made a promise to myself a few years back that if I ever got so low again going into a job, I would sort that stuff out super fast.

Thankfully, I know what I want from a job and how I can utilise my skills and experience to contribute effectively. I also know how I want to be led and empowered to bring my best game to the table on a daily basis.

You have the true capacity and pure potential to achieve everything you want from your work and you are in control of whether you make it or break it.

I believe you deserve to experience the best of opportunities out there, so make sure you bring your ‘A’ game every single time.

There is this great quote by Rumi, “what you seek, is seeking you”, and for me, this quote is a wonderful reminder to never doubt your capabilities and be mindful of the many doors that are open for you – just walk right in.

You got this – always!

What is…..?

a miracle glowing

What is love,
without surprise,
a caring thought,
heartfelt eyes.

What is kindness,
without the giving,
touching lives,
soulful living.

What is forgiveness,
without a prayer,
sharing you,
unique and rare.

What is gratitude,
without the knowing,
a thankful bond,
a miracle glowing.

What is here,
without your presence,
healing time,
your very essence.

You’re the Star

forever inspiring

You're the Star,
that shines so bright,
giving me hope,
bringing me light.

You're the Star,
in my heart,
forever inspiring,
igniting each part.

You're the Star,
strong in power,
fading the darkness,
sparkling each hour.

You're the Star,
soulful in time,
guiding to goodness,
simply divine.

When You Lose a Life

missing their touch

Most of us who have suffered the great loss of a precious loved one, may indeed connect to the following poem. 

I want you to know that I feel you and I truly understand the deepest hurt losing a loved one can bring.

WHEN YOU LOSE A LIFE

When you lose a life,
you loved so much,
absence of hugs,
missing their touch.

You grieve their heart,
you once embodied before,
many sleepless nights,
craving them more.

An invisible pain,
that never goes away,
so lost without them,
a hate for each day.

No one shares,
the hurt in you,
life feels numb,
purposeless too.

But know their presence,
lives in your soul,
a bond so strong,
making you whole.

Believe they stand,
right by your side,
giving you energy,
watching with pride.

They are your candle,
giving you light,
they are your blanket,
comforting you at night.

They listen to your whispers,
guide your inner thoughts,
solving your problems,
untying the knots.

So remember their smile,
laughter and glow,
bringing you solice,
when you feel low.

Know that their spirit,
embraces your love,
forever your star,
shining from above.

Stay Strong

Stay Strong

Life can be tough,
the weather may be rough,
but stay strong,
find the inner strength to carry on.

You are loved, have faith, believe,
you are special, focus and achieve.
One door is closed, but many are ajar,
maximise your potential, you’ll go really far.

The world is on your side,
so fill your heart with pride.
Move on up, inspire your mind,
get ready for change, you’re one of kind.

In The Eye of a Needle

New Year

I am in poetic flow at the moment, this one’s for you. ¬†Sometimes I don’t know what these poems mean, I wonder what they mean to you?

In the Eye of a Needle

In the eye of a needle,
My soul breathes deep.
I see my heart,
Secrets I keep.

I bury my mind,
In a tunnel of love.
A cave with no light.
Blue sky with no dove.

It’s beyond the horizon,
Seems so far away.
Yet closer than I think,
Honest whispers I pray.

And on a misty morn,
The freshness I feel.
Both of us together,
This dream is real.

I hold out my hand,
Please take it with care.
A nurtured passion,
Leaves my soul stripped bare.
