Midnight Eyes

You heart forever glows, remember that.

Midnight Eyes

Midnight eyes,
Starry light.
Frosty moon,
Brightest white.
Love and hope,
Faith and knowing.
Smiling heart,
Forever glowing.

Icy Puddles

I was out walking the other day and took the photo below, I just thought the scenery around me was stunning. Beautiful Bonny Scotland, on a winter’s day.

Icy Puddles

Icy puddles,
Reflecting on me.
Frosty edges,
Pure beauty.
Landscape wonders,
Spellbound eyes,
A magical mirror,
Full of surprise.

I Spied With My Little Eye

I spied with my little eye,
Something beginning with me.
I looked at my life,
And discovered the vision I see.
It was colourful and bright,
All I wanted it to be.
Dancing and Smiling forever,
Like waves of gratitude in the sea.
I spied with my little eye,
Something beginning with happy.

I’m Free

I’m free,
As the air I breathe.
I’m happy,
Like an autumn leaf.
I’m loved,
Like the moon so bright,
I’m peaceful,
In a starry night.
I’m smiling,
As my dreams come true.
I’m here,
Always believing in you.

You Deserve Abundance

Measure your progress,
Day by day.
Feel your progress,
Move your way.
Dig even deeper,
Prove to yourself,
That you deserve abundance,
Success and true wealth.

Touched by Emotion

Touched by emotion,
Loving life.
Freeing my spirit,
From worry and strife.

Keeping it together,
Hoping for all.
Rising faith,
Breaks down the brick wall.

In the twist of the wind,
No enemies appear.
All friends together,
Filled with good cheer.

An unfulfilled heart,
Takes you beyond.
Frozen miracles,
Reflected in the pond.

Catch the light,
Let it shine all around.
Mystic and magic,
Will soon be found.

My Heart

My happy heart,
Is calling me,
Into the light.

My loving heart,
Is showing me,
With delight.

My caring heart,
Is giving me,
A warm sunlight.

My joyous heart,
Is inspiring me.
Into the night.

My praying heart,
Is touching me,
In candlelight.

My passionate heart,
Is creating me,
This is right.

Sprinkles of Dreams

Sprinkles of Dreams

They sparkle,
I smile with delight.
Loving hands,
Glowing in the light.

They tell a story,
Of hope and truth,
Like the charming spirit,
Of a child’s fairy tooth.

They touch another,
A soft gentle caress,
Washing away problems,
Sorting out the mess.

And glistening in my palm,
The miracle dust holds,
Sprinkles of dreams,
As my passion unfolds.

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.

By Clarabelle

Hey You

Hey you, I feel you need a little reminder of how far you’ve already come…..this poem is perfectly timed for you.

Hey You

Hey you,
Don’t give up
Be strong now
Fill up your cup
With happy thoughts
Love for the dream
On your own
Or one of the team
You can do it
Turn around
No going back
Up of the ground
Moment by moment
Day by day
You’re getting closer
You’ll win this way.

You make me happy.

Sunny Love

Some days I am just full of energy, like today.  I was in bed fairly early last night and woke up at 3am as bright as a button.  It was pitch black outside but I thought to myself, get up and do what you need/want to do, so I did, rather than stare into the darkness of the room.

Sometimes I write my best stuff at this time in the morning, I really do and I love it when that happens.

So treat yourself to an early night and wake up early morning, fully alive and ready to take on your dreams.  Remember to take time to watch the morning sun come up, it is such a beautiful scene.

Lots of sunny love to you today, ClarabelleIMG_3556.JPG

I Told Him So

Romance is in the air, spreading the love through a poetic verse or two……enjoy.

I Told Him So

I told him so
I love him dearly
I feel his heart
I see it clearly
Many footsteps,
May seem afar
Our love grows
Beyond the star
Dust will settle
On magical ground
The bell rings
I hear his sound
A smile for you
A tear for me
I told him so
I love him dearly

Who is this Woman?

Poetic moments from my poetic heart to you.

Who is this Woman?

Who is this woman?
With dreams for the taking.
What is she doing?
What is she making?

She talks of big plans,
And all things good.
She always shines,
In a positive mood.

Why is she writing?
Like she’s talking to me.
Building me up,
Taller than a tree.

Will she tell us?
When her desires show.
Moving from her soul,
And her spirit do flow.

I like her a lot,
This woman on a mission.
Encouraging my heart,
Retrieving my vision.

So I guess I’ll listen,
And set my goals too,
This woman is an Angel,
She lives inside of you.

Hang in There

I was talking to my friend today and I ended the conversation with “Hang in there”…… It inspired the poem below:

Hang on Tight

Hang on tight,
My lovely friend.
Keep up the fight,
Until the end.

This year’s been tough,
A burden to carry.
But soon the night sky,
Will be bright and starry.

An Angel she whispers,
Softly in my ear.
Let go of the past,
Don’t shed another tear.

For all this kicking
And punching won’t win.
It’s a hard trek I know,
For your next of kin.

I pray every night,
For you, better days,
Your family together,
This loving Angel says.

I’m on your shoulder,
Taking care of you.
Holding your hand,
During tough times too.

And Soon tomorrow,
Will shine in your heart.
No more sadness,
Just a happy fresh start.

Oprah Winfrey’s Hands

In a previous blog post last week, I wrote a poem about Oprah Winfrey reading my book, this is what I want. I moved forward with this desire last week and posted to Oprah Winfrey a copy of my Amazon book, “Clarabelle’s Musings”.

I researched into 3 addresses to send it into Oprah Winfrey, so, yes you’ve guessed it, I sent a copy of my book to each of the 3 addresses – it could be in her hands, right now, as we speak.

I really do believe this is a book that Oprah Winfrey will absolutely love, I truly do and I guess if it’s meant for her to read she will definitely get the opportunity to read it, the Universe will make sure of that.

I shall keep you posted on developments, it may be 6 days, 6 weeks or 6 years, but let’s just see what happens.

I hope that you will take some encouragement out of this blog post for yourself, I hope it inspires you to take your dreams one step further.

Happy days to you, love Clarabelle.

Champion Heart

Remember this, you have a champion heart, yes you, I feel its strength, I see its purpose and it’s ready to take on the world. Here’s a poem for you, just about that:

Your Champion Heart

Your champion heart,
Is beautiful to see.
So special and true,
A passion to free.

It’s bursting with pride,
With a forever smile,
Stronger than an ox,
Mile after mile.

No matter the path,
That you are on,
Your willing attitude,
Is where you belong.

So hold on tight,
Because excitement is ready.
To lift you higher,
Go rock steady.

A winning love,
A happy ever after.
You are the one,
Sing out with laughter.

Writing Mood

I really love it when I am in a writing mood, it can happen to me at any time of the day and when it does I just have to capitalise on it, as best I can. This moment is now, suddenly I have an enthusiastic urge to write and I just have to do it. Here is a little poem to you from this happy mood moment:

Creating My Tomorrow

Fluffy and white,
Like cotton wool.
Clouds in the breeze,
Air fresh and cool.

Snowy moments,
A blanket of space.
Tranquil surroundings,
A different place.

Making it happen,
Hopes and dreams.
Fill up my corner,
Rainbow beams.

Moonlit skies,
Are pretty and pink.
Soft melting colours,
Make me think.

Time is not here,
I am at one.
Always myself,
Smiling at the sun.

No questions to answer,
For I know what’s true.
Creating my tomorrow,
In today what I do.

Experiencing life,
Embracing this treasure.
Loving the journey,
Surprised with pleasure.

There’s Something in the Air

I had a fascinating conversation with my mum today and my interpretation of that chat is shared in this poem below. She started it with “There’s something in the air…..”

There’s Something in the Air

There’s something in the air,
I feel it in my heart.
I’m not sure what it is,
Or when it all did start?

It’s a strange sensation,
Floating around me.
Connected to your being,
With friends and family.

I do believe it’s good,
Nothing there to fear.
There’s been lots changes,
In and around here.

I never really say this,
Call it intuition.
Bringing better vibes,
Welcoming the transition.

So travel on this journey,
For there I see a sign,
Shining on your heart,
So beautiful and divine.

You’ve been so very brave,
Starting all over again.
Breaking down the barriers,
Freeing you from pain.

I do believe it’s fate,
Knocking on your door.
Giving you new experiences,
Encouraging you to explore.

I now see your commitment,
I know your soul breathes in.
Strength and fighting spirit,
Serendipity will win.

Dedicated to Paratrooper Steve

Following on from my previous post, I dedicate this poem to Steve who is sadly no longer here:

A Paratrooper….

I saw an Ad
To write to you
You wanted a friend
Another focus too.

In January 97,
You said “Hello”
“My name is Steve
I have a sore toe.

From all the marching,
And running too,
It bleeds sometimes,
But this is what I do.

I jump from planes,
It was scary at first.
But now these skyfalls
Quench my thirst.

I love to travel,
I love the sun
I’m studying like crazy.
When not with a gun.

A paratrooper by title,
I was 18 at the start,
5 years later,
A strong soldier with a heart.

Sometimes I’m lonely,
A lot of times I’m not.
So busy with my life,
I make good of what I’ve got.

I love my fitness,
It’s important to me.
I try to improve,
Be the best I can be.

Sorry if this letter,
Arrived a little late.
But I’ll send you some photos,
Just a little more to wait.

I love to get your mail,
Please write soon Claire.
Keep smiling, soldier on.
Love from Steve, take care.”

31 of these letters,
I treasure with happy tears
So sad that you are gone Steve,
Thank you for those two years.

Thank You World

Loch Lomond Sky
Loch Lomond, Photo by Gerry Mitchell

I was having a little look at my blog stats today and I am over the moon with the people from all the different counties who have visited my blog.  Out of 196 countries in the world, so far, people from 138 countries around the world have visited my blog.  I am actually astounded, that’s 70% of the world’s countries are represented on stats on my blog.

So, as a massive THANK YOU to you from around the world, I am going to do a poem for your very own country. So I will make my list very soon and then I will do a lovely bespoke poem for you in your country, that’s the least I can do as a special thank you for visiting.  So if whether you’re from Ireland or Australia or France or Brazil…..all 138 of you will be getting a dedicated poem.  Of course, any new arrivals of countries, will also get their own poem.  I’m really looking forward to this, I really am.  Look out for your poem for your country.  I am smiling, I am looking forward to doing this.

Thank you for being here.

Love Clarabelle, Bonny Scotland, UK

It’s Only A Matter of Time

IMG_3534

It’s only a matter of time for your vision to come alive.  First you feel it in your heart, then you see it in your imagination, then you feel it moving in your bones and then it dances throughout your body….and only when it has flowed through all of those stages, only then it begins to take form.

It starts with one word, one step, one piece of the 100,000 piece jigsaw puzzle but it doesn’t matter how long it takes, because you know “your calling” is going to make it.  Listen to me my friend, it’s only a matter of time……because it is in silence of faith that dreams can be awakened.

So can I relate to the above?  Yes, you’ve got it, of course I can.  Almost 6 years ago, I was kind of laughed at because I said at the very start of my business that I was going to have my own books, my very own positive book range……I just knew what they were thinking, their faces said it all, but you know I BELIEVED, I really believed in me, I always do and sometimes I get off track but I always get back there, back to where I need to be.

I sit here today looking at my first Amazon paperback book,”Clarabelle’s Musings”, sitting on my home office desk and I am smiling with pure joy, excitement and adoration of what I see before me……for my heart is sitting on this table, my heart is painted on the pages of this book, making its way to you.

IMG_3536

IMG_3535

So if you believe like I believed in me, when other people laughed at what I wanted to achieve for myself, may my own story inspire you to keep going my friend…..6 days, 6 months, 6 years, you’re going to make it…..it’s only a matter of time.

Much love to you, Clarabelle

It’s Hard

IMG_3527.JPG

Every moment is a moment to change, don’t give up the fight, there are hands and many hearts helping you forever.  Keep going my friend.  Love Clarabelle.

It’s Hard to Believe

It’s hard to believe,
in the torrential rain.
That the sun will shine,
and free you from pain.

It’s hard to let go,
when love pulls you in.
But a one sided love,
can never win.

It’s hard to smile,
when you’re hurting inside,
when the river runs deep,
and you’ve lost all pride.

It’s hard to be you,
when you feel so drained,
emotional pain,
keeping you chained.

But believe my heart,
believe what it says.
The rainbow is ready,
and the Angel prays.

She flies above your home,
drying up your tears.
She sends you much love,
and banishes the fears.

And as you sleep,
in bed tonight.
the little Angel of love,
Shines on you bright.

With a warmth like no other.
and a pure glowing heart.
Sad times move on
And you’ll have a fresh start.

By Clarabelle

Pick Up Your Soul

A poignant poem to reflect bravery in your soul. This one is especially for you today. Love Clarabelle

Pick Up Your Soul

Pick up your soul,
And carry on.
Lost adventures,
Hope was gone.

But sunny days,
Are here again.
No more sadness,
No more pain.

For now you know,
Your heart was talking.
It whispered from within,
Whilst struggling walking.

It said, “I believe,
In all you are,
You’re a happy spirit,
A shining star”

You listened in fear,
Stepped forward in tears,
For you really believed,
That after all these years.

Times were changing,
The past was the past.
And the present tough times,
They would not last.

So with your head held high,
For all to see,
You picked up your soul,
And carried me.

By Clarabelle
IMG_3484.JPG

You’ve Made It

Let’s get going, yes you, yes YOU and me, let’s get going with our life, our wonderfully inspiring beautiful life…….now smile, you’ve made it.

You’ve Made It

Wow, I think you’ve made it,
I always knew you would.
You faced your deepest fears,
Turned bad times into good.

When all in life seemed lost,
And very troublesome too,
A huge wave of inspiration,
Got hold of the person in you.

You’ve come so very far.
Be proud and feel rejoice,
Your empowering creative spirit,
Released its encouraging voice.

Now your amazing success,
Is so easy to see.
All the hurt and pain,
Guided you to be free,

So celebrate this happy,
You deserve all it brings,
Because you are a fighter,
And inspire all great things.

By Clarabelle

Who Are You?

believe

I wrote this last year for YOU.

You can also listen to the audio speech here:

Who Are You? You are special, a person with a heart, a loving heart, a soul, a singing soul, a spirit, a happy spirit.  You have dreams, great, great, dreams.  You have plans, big, big, plans.  You have faith, strong faith in the mystery of the unknown and YOU BELIEVE.

You believe with every part of your being that only magnificence lies before you.  You have a unique power that goes beyond the impossible.  You have an energy that attracts true abundance to you.  You are alive and are grateful for all that you are and for all that you are becoming.

You can create magic around you because you breathe and do with passion, every baby step that you take on this journey of life.

The miracle of all miracles is in you and in every path you come across.  Every heart that you touch, every soul that you inspire, every star that you catch and every rainbow that protects you from the storms.

You are at one with yourself, in the silence of all silences your spirit shines and your light guides you out of the darkness.

You fly, you soar, you reach for the mountain top and when you get there, you see far in the distance another higher mountain to climb.  But it is in the challenge of every challenge to only ever reach the top.  The top is never ending, the beginning is never new, life is, what it is.

Life is how you see it. 

Life is how you live it. 

Life is how you love it.

There is freedom, there is abundance, there is everything you need and want before you.  You can’t see it with your eyes, you can’t touch it with your hands but it is living, breathing and dancing around you.  This invisible space is your space, your space to fill with smiles, laughter, love, joy and happiness.  Nourish the space around you by nourishing peace from within, because even in stormy weathers you can find a calm place.

So go to the edge of the mountain top because it is waiting for you with open arms.  Other travellers want to hear your story, want to learn from your experiences, good or bad.  They want to know, what you know, to help them on their own journey of life.

Then you must find a quiet spot and listen to the sound of the wind, whispers of the greatest knowledge will come to you and you will use this wisdom to carry on.

Yes you may feel broken right now.

Yes you may have cried enough tears to fill a river.

Yes you may feel like a failure and all your self-worth and self-confidence has gone.

But I want to tell you something. It’s still there you know.  The best part of you is still living in you. You still have that spark. You still shine.  You are loved deeply and your heart knows this.
The mind can play games with our feelings, but the mind has no hold over the power of the heart.  Close your eyes, feel your heart, feel its energy, feel its power, let it grow inside of you.

You are very special and you can and will do this. You will turn your life around for the better.

This is the moment that counts, this is when you decide enough is enough.  This is when you say “I am strong, I am better than that and I believe in me and my potential.  I am whatever I choose to be and I choose to be what I believe in my heart.  I am my greatest dreams, I am.”

Never settle for too little because you have such a lot and to not unleash your true talents into this world would surely keep you from the wisdom that is truly yours.

Trust in you, trust in your abilities, trust that everyone is asking similar questions and this is your time to fight back.  This is your time to answer with your heart.  This is your life, to love, to live, to learn and to lead.  Capture that feeling in your heart right now, let it flow through every vein in your body, let it illuminate you with drive, determination and self-discipline, now mix it with passion and purpose and you’re on your way.

You are free now, free to make the right choices and decisions in life that will make you the BEST EVER YOU.  Your new life awaits – make every moment count and GO GET IT, because nobody deserves it more than you.  You have all the qualities within you to make it.  Thrive, grow and shine NOW and FOREVER.

By Clarabelle.

If you think this will help someone, please please share. Thank you.

Would You Bare Your Soul?

angel cloud

Sometimes poems just whisper out of me, the words just appear and I have to write them down straight away, just like this moment now, just like today, when my heart sang these words. It’s maybe a message to me and you, to live your life now like your soul would want it to.  I guess my poems are the baring of my soul to you.

Would you bare your soul?

Would you bare your soul?
So heaven would let you in.
The promise of a peaceful land.
Full of happiness within.
Where Angels pray in song,
And many hearts entwine.
Brought together in love,
A miracle of the divine.
So when your last day falls,
And puddles of tears appear.
Your soul knows where it’s going,
Sweet hymns whisper you near.
The stairway is alight,
With candles either side.
They represent each moment,
Your heart touched another inside.
The shadows are now behind you,
No pain follows you there.
For freedom ignites your spirit,
And your soul is now stripped bare.

Time is of the essence, none of us get out of this life alive, that’s for sure……so let your soul dance in the now, as it’s paving the way to your happy ever after.

Love Clarabelle

What if Oprah Winfrey Read my Book?

Oprah Winfrey
What if Oprah Winfrey read my book?

I was just thinking this the other day…..What if Oprah Winfrey read my book?

What if Oprah Winfrey Read my Book?

What if Oprah Winfrey read my book?
What would she think?
Would it inspire her mind?
Would it make her heart wink?

What if Oprah Winfrey read my book?
Would it give her a smile?
Would she feel warmth inside?
Would she laugh for a while?

What if Oprah Winfrey read my book?
Would she share it with others?
Would it motivate her friends?
Would it connect with all Mothers?

What if Oprah Winfrey read my book?
Would she even know my name?
What book is “Clarabelle’s Musings”?
What is her writing aim?

What if Oprah Winfrey read my book?
What would she say?
What hope would it give her?
What page would she pray?

What if Oprah Winfrey read my book?
What if she read it with joy?
What if Clarabelle’s poems?
Inspired every girl and boy?

What if Oprah Winfrey read my book?

I Wonder Where?

A poem of wonder, for you today, love Clarabelle.

I Wonder Where?

If I stay here I die
I live a lie
I wither in the shade
My smile it does fade
If I move far away
Other hearts will pray
Travellers will thrive
They will feel alive
I will leave,
Nothing to grieve
For I know
My soul does glow
In a twinkling heart
So I will depart
No tears will fall,
For an inner call
Takes me there
I wonder where? IMG_3488.JPG

So Happy

Today, I collected my first ever paperback book from Amazon. I was the happiest person ever picking up the book. I excitedly opened up the package on the street and wanted to shout out to everybody, “Hey, this is my book”, I was wearing the biggest smile ever. This book’s content has spanned over a 3 year period and I honestly can’t believe I’ve written it. I read each page with new learnings and rejuvenated wisdom and I am amazed all over again.

I know some of my best writings in this book have been written at some of the toughest times in my life, when I was going through some inner challenges of lost love, tough business times and knock back after knock back. These writings, through that inner pain were inspiring me to “keep going”, to “never give up” and to do my very best to help myself achieve all that I have ever wanted. It was like I was connected to something else when writing these musings……like something else was speaking through my heart, mind and soul. I would just sit there alone in the silence of my own home and write…..it all just flowed out of me so easily and I would instantly feel an inner calmness after it.

So, in my humble opinion, this book, Clarabelle’s Musings are miracle writings, whispers of my soul to share with the world and connect in a very special way with other hearts and ultimately help you positively move forward in your own journey of life.

I often wonder where I got my writing spirit from, as my Mum and Dad don’t write but my younger sister Leanne is a fabulous writer, although I am sorry to say that she doesn’t write anymore.

I remember Leanne came home from High School one day, she was about 13 years old and she was stunned because the Head of the English Department, at the time, didn’t believe she had written the essay she wrote, she was upset that she had to convince him that she did write it all herself. He was so amazed by her talent, he took her School book from her and showed it to the other English teachers in the department. Not very inspiring for a 13 year old, when your teacher doesn’t even believe in you. I wish Leanne would write again, her story writing, really is amazing but she is so happy being a wonderful mum of 3 children with another one on the way in February next year. Leanne also home schools my nieces and nephews……her children will always be inspired, she will make sure of that.

I think we got it from my Grandfather, Eddie, who told me, at 90 years old, that when he was a child, he came first place in a UK and Ireland wide School writing competition. I felt so proud of him when he shared that with me, he hadn’t told anyone, until then, sadly he passed away at the age of 92.

So today is a momentous day and I am dedicating this paperback to my Granda Eddie and my younger sister Leanne, both inspirations to me.

Clarabelle’s Musings, this is my new bedtime reading book.

Lots of love to you today, Clarabelle

Let’s Get Going!!

A motivational poem for you:

Let’s Get Going

Let’s get going,
Don’t you stop.
Keep your head up,
Beep beep bop.
See the goal,
In your eyes.
Feel and believe,
It’s your surprise.
So soldier on,
Break through it all.
Imagine your life.
Over the brick wall.
At the rainbow’s end,
Celebrate your glory,
This is your life,
This is your story.

Let’s get going my friends, you and me, let’s get going today!!

When I Die….

Clarabelle Quotes, The Light of Love

I am planning on being here for at least another 50 years and I do love making the best of everything in life.  Here is a short poem I made up this morning.  Love to you, Clarabelle

When I Die

When I die,
I’ll leave you my heart,
For it has a home with you.

When I die,
I’ll leave you my spirit,
For it breathes life in all that you do.

When I die,
I’ll leave you my soul,
For it dances around us two.

When I die,
I’ll leave you my love,
For always, forever and true.

 

Together Forever

Clarabelle Quotes  71

Together Forever

Just show me love,
And I’ll show you the way.
An unknown path,
But I’m here to stay.
A new world awaits,
Hope is where I live,
Fond sweet memories,
True kindness I give.
Share your heart,
Let me see it all,
Building a new life,
Where stars do fall.
And the sun shines on,
Like never before,
Take my hand,
Let’s go through the door.
I see the rainbow,
Its colours so bright,
Together forever,
You’ve shown me the light.

Hearts Will Dance

Clarabelle Photography and Quotes, The light is love

Some things are just meant to be and when all seems lost and the door seems locked, in walks love…..forever love.  May you find beauty, love and peace in the following verse.

Hearts Will Dance

And through the pain,
She awaits his heart.
Missing his love,
When he did depart.
She hears his voice,
Whisper in her soul.
She feels his spirit,
Making her whole.
In all this time,
In all the tears.
Words, “I love you”,
Unspoken for years.
It’s not too late,
Now there’s a chance.
To be together,
Both hearts will dance.
As she closes her eyes,
With a peaceful mind.
She knows he is waiting,
True love they did find.

In Time….

Leadership Quote

Time is precious, this poem is for you.

Time is Precious

A dimension of hope,
A Universal clock.
Time gently passes,
Tick, Tick, Tock.

I look out the window,
What do I see?
A Vision of my mind,
Staring back at me.

Every little second,
Every tiny drop.
Fills the blue ocean.
Feeds the cold crop.

Rumbling in the mist,
This sound catches fire.
Your time is precious,
Fulfill your heart’s desire.

A Poem of the Heart

A poem of the heart,

Raising your spirits,

with a magical spell.
This poem is for you,
and I wish you well.

To Veronica from Valerie

beach and birds

To a Very Special Friend

I was in a local charity shop yesterday and stumbled across this lovely little friendship book. On the inside of the book it says, “To Veronica from Valerie,” and I thought that was very cute.  I began reading some of the verses and poetry from within and the words really did touch my heart, I could relate to every verse.  There is one verse from Pam Brown which I especially connected with and it made me think of my friend right now, who is far away but I hope to see him very soon.

Far Away

In loneliness, in sickness, in confusion – the mere knowledge of friendship makes it possible to endure, even if the friend is powerless to help.  It is enough that they exist.  Friendship is not diminished by distance or time, by imprisonment or war, by suffering or silence.  It is in these things that it roots most deeply.  It is from these things that it flowers.  [Pam Brown, b. 1928]

I thought just so very beautiful and so very true.

Treasure your friends and let them know that you love them.

Lots of love, Clarabelle

 

Breathe

courage

I am in a poetic mood this morning, this one is for you, take it all in and just “Breathe”.

Breathe

Breathe in life,
energy from the sun.
Breathe in hope,
memories have begun.
Breathe in faith,
beauty of your heart.
Breathe in love,
the last jigsaw part.
Breathe in you,
Breathe in me.
Breathe in together.
Breathe in we.

4th of July Poem

4th of July

Here’s a 4th of July poem for you:

4th of July Poem

Her independence,
sets her free,
Happy spirited,
that is she.
Clouds pass by,
like her thoughts.
Windswept hair,
tied in knots.

Fireworks,
light her soul.
Angels dance,
she feels whole.
Born on this day,
high as a kite.
4th of July,
Is in full flight.
