Poetry Corner #19 Don’t Despair

When times are tough

Don’t despair,
when times are tough,
forever moments,
are not meant to be rough.

Keep your head high,
believe in good days,
have faith in your future,
your wonderful ways.

Behind the scenes,
you always shine,
remember that,
all will be fine.

See yourself smile,
laughing again,
knowing that soon,
you’ll be free from pain.

Be Grateful for Life

Create ‘flow’ in your life

Hello wonderful you! It’s Youtube Tuesday and today’s original video poem is all about embracing your beautiful attitude of gratitude.

May today’s video remind you of everything you have to be thankful for.

Be Grateful for Life

Be Grateful for Life

Create ‘flow’ in your life,
let worries melt away,
yesterday has gone
but the learning can stay.

Tomorrow is not here,
live for today,
enjoy each precious moment,
in every way.

Be grateful for life,
the moon and the sun,
be grateful for your family
and everyone.

Smile at your neighbours
and the stranger on the street,
for your smile is contagious,
to all that you meet.

Happy is the heart,
that glows from within,
embrace life and love
and forever you’ll win.

Poetry Corner #17 Wisdom Speaks Truth

Creation becomes you.

Your wisdom speaks truth,
in all that you do,
flowing and growing,
magnetically to you.

It whispers knowings,
from days gone by,
captivating choices,
helping your why.

No filters required,
intuition sets free,
an inner magic,
letting you see.

Your life it matters,
everything is true,
when knowledge appears,
with no hint or clue.

Beyond each moment,
deep in your heart,
creation becomes you,
right from the start.

Where Do I Fall?

A winning heart, is a champion mind.

A very warm welcome to wonderful you. It’s Youtube Tuesday and today’s original video poem is all about bouncing back after a fall. I have always said, resilience is built in the bouncing back, not when everything is running smoothly.

Hopefully, today’s video will help to motivate and inspire you to KEEP GOING. There will always be challenges, but you are much GREATER than any challenge that comes your way – remember that.

Where Do I Fall

Where do I fall, if not at my feet?
What keeps me going, after defeat?
A focused forever, of what I am.
A determined spirit, of “Yes I Can”.
For a winning heart, is a champion mind.
My faith is amazing, it is one of a kind.

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.

Courageous You

Trust in your heart

Challenges are a blessing, they make us stronger from within, although at the time it doesn’t really feel that way.  

Courage will always find you. Please have faith and know in your heart of hearts that setbacks make us dig deeper and a new opportunity awaits for you.  

May you create the right opportunity for you in your life today.  

Couragous words coming your way in the following poem by Clarabelle.

Courage Will Always Find You

Have patience my dear,

for all is well,

I see it for your future,

I hear its jingle bell.

***

For just around the corner,

is a beautiful light,

waiting for the darkness,

to shine on you so bright.

***

Challenges are a blessing,

they make us who we are,

welcome them with open arms,

jump on that magical star.

***

Courage will always find you,

be brave and carry on,

just because you can’t see it,

doesn’t mean all hope is gone.

***

Trust in your heart,

have faith in all that’s here,

this path that you are on,

is quite simply crystal clear.

***

This encouraging poetic message,

is especially for you;

it brings peace and loving thoughts,

to make you stronger through and through.

POETRY CORNER #14 Open the Door

Stand there tall.

Welcome to Poetry Corner Thursday.
I hope the poem below takes you to places you’ve always wanted to go to.

Open the Door

The experience of life,
will make you strong,
your spirit will uplift you,
to where you belong.

All is whole,
truth and more,
welcome the world,
open the door.

A grateful heart,
will always smile,
magical moments,
are felt for a while.

As the curtain falls,
and the audience moves on,
stand there tall,
for you have not gone.

Your soul is forever,
it sparkles and shines,
listen to,
its beautiful chimes.

Take your frequency,
as high as a kite,
the Universe is waiting, 
take your first flight.

Poetry Corner #9

Giving you a sign

Good day to you. Every Thursday is Poetry Corner. Enjoy the poem below from the Clarablle Collection of Original Poems.

Lucky White Feather

I see it floating,
passing me by,
falling so softly,
down from the sky.

They say it is lucky,
a gift from above,
a symbol of connection,
filled with true love.

I follow it quietly,
drifting in time,
freely dancing,
simply sublime.

This lucky white feather,
represents life,
truth and tranquility,
no trouble or strife.

So next time you see one,
believe its for you,
giving you a sign,
that you'll make it through.

I AM THAT I AM

I am that I am

Growing from Within

I am very heavily into my own self development and as I feel myself growing from within I feel it is stripping back built up beliefs that don’t serve me well and returning me back to who I really am.  I am very aware of this change happening within me and I feel the dreams I had as a child, which I let go of for 30 years, finding their way back to me – like an inner calling with drive and purpose.

Here is what I AM becoming more aware of each day in my life:

  • Simple things like listening to music that moves me, music that makes me want to sing and dance;
  • Songwriting and producing music;
  • Being in touch with my inner emotions and open expressions of feelings of love;
  • Holding my face up to the sunlight and breathing in the fresh air;
  • Playing, having fun and laughing…..a lot!!
  • Feeling excited at the start of each new day, answering the question, What will I create today?
  • Refreshing my soul in the rain – I love the rain; 
  • Having lighthearted fun conversations with my best friends;
  • Having trusting, openhearted conversations with my mum… not minutes….for hours;
  • Coming alive in the presence of children – my nieces and nephew;
  • Feeling INSPIRED, right now I feel inspired, right now in this very moment;
  • Being so very grateful and being very mindful of this – it comes naturally to me, my attitude of gratitude;
  • My deepest appreciation for solitude, I know when I need this, I know I like to have my own quiet, creative space at times;
  • Reaching out to other people and confidently sharing all of the above and more;
  • Appreciating the beauty and miracle of a rainbow, the moonlight and the midnight stars;
  • I sincerely value what I am attracting into my life right now, there is so much abundance, I feel elated;

5 WORDS

I read books, I read a lot of books and I take different bits and pieces of the knowledge from these books and apply them to what feels right for me. I don’t always believe everything I read, however I am very much open to what others have to say and value their thoughts and contributions.  I know I am becoming a better person, a better version of me, I know I am the healthiest I have ever been in my whole life and I am that I am.  Those last 5 words of the preceding sentence “I AM THAT I AM” this for me is very powerful, I felt and believed that before I even read about the Power of I AM.  I am using “I AM” in my thoughts everyday, it makes a special connection with me and I feel its power.  Below is an example of what I AM and what I say to myself everyday now (this list is not exhaustive):

I AM love
I AM inspiration
I AM a wonderfully creative and full of imagination
I AM  a successful poet
I AM super healthy
I AM positive energy and colourfully vibrant
I AM happy and fulfilled
I AM a Marathoner
I AM super confident
I AM super rich in the fullness of life
I AM inspiring hearts all over the world
I AM a very successful blogger
I AM the very best Coach and Mentor
I AM a successful music producer and singer/songwriter
I AM wonderfully happy in my new home and environment
I AM prosperous and attract all that I want into my life
I AM beautiful

I AM THAT I AM and I have every faith in the Power of I AM

The above feels right for me and I would encourage you to apply the Power of I AM in your daily life, however, ONLY if you feel it purely connects with you, you feel it touch and inspire your inner being, I am a great believer that what works for me, doesn’t always work for you.  This works for me but if it doesn’t connect and work for you, something else will and it will find you.

May you be inspired today to find out that very thing that connects and works for you.  Much love to you today, Clarabelle

Having had tragic circumstances to deal with in my life with the sudden loss of my twin brother, husband and father all within a close space of time, I felt I had to write down some of my thoughts in the form of a poem to try and give me strength to get through such sad times, I feel that poetry helped me express my emotions and hopefully will encourage others to read them and take strength from them to carry on each day and look at every day as a blessing, I now try and look at life in a more positive way and have realised that through time we all get stronger.

Happiness

In our lives the sun may shine, some days I wonder why not in mine. with a spring in your step, you go about your day, but what about those who are not made that way. 

Sharing your laugh and sharing your smile, means a lot to those who haven’t felt that in a while, they say try to be bubbly, try to be fun, but that’s really hard when you live a life where there is no sun. 

Look in the mirror say what you see, tell yourself is that really me,the frown on my face those unlit eyes, what happened to that smile that could light up the skies.

 Pick yourself up get back on track, watch out my girl or you’ll take a step back.  So here I am smiling today and I have to tell myself ‘there is no other way’.
