Loch Lomond Sky

A friend allowed me to share with you a stunning photo (below) he took of Loch Lomond, Scotland recently and it inspired me to write the poem about it below, I hope you like it. Thank you to Gerry Mitchell for allowing me to use his beautiful photo of Loch Lomond for this blog post. Lots of love to you all today Clarabelle

Loch Lomond Sky

A bird flies high,
Beneath the Loch Lomond Sky.

With freedom in its wings,
The whispers of its soul sings.

A beautiful tranquil day,
Where shadows guide the way.

And reflections of white light,
Keep my heart bright.

As I stand here all alone,
Loch Lomond feels like home.

It takes my breath away.
Forever this moment will stay.

Snap Happy

Balmaha Bay

Today I am going to go on a day trip to Balmaha Bay, Balloch, Scotland with my mum and during that trip I am going to be “snap happy” as I will be taking some beautiful photos for my new eBook that’s coming out, “It’s All About Gratitude”.  I am excited about doing this and it will also be really lovely to spend a day with my mum.

I love Balmaha Bay, for me it is a place of deep beauty and peaceful tranquility and sometimes this is just what the doctor ordered.  🙂

In 2011 I wrote a poem about Balmaha, I have already shared it on this blog before, but here it is again, just in case you missed it first time round:

Balmaha Lake

Sweet Balmaha Bay

Balmaha, an inspiring place,
Oh how I love, your beautiful face.
The silent lake, speaks many words,
A magical paradise, beneath the flight of birds.
My soul’s at home, when I visit you,
I feel at one, below the sky so blue.
As I tie a yellow ribbon, around the old oak tree,
I appreciate your world, for all to see.
The air is clean, fresh and new,
The shimmering sunlight, makes a stunning view.
And the many boats, who sail in leisure,
Uplifting spirits, you provide great pleasure.
In hail or rain, sunshine or snow,
Your tranquil beauty, will always show.
For the depths of your heart, are in everyone,
Sweet Balmaha Bay under the horizon sun.

 Poem By Clarabelle, 2011

Wherever you go today and whatever you do, I do hope it brings you sweet happiness and fulfillment, much love to you Clarabelle.  🙂

The Stunning Moonlight

Moonlight Sky from Clarabelle’s Back Garden 24.07.13

I worked all through the night yesterday and just before I went to bed at 5.45am for a few hours I looked out of my patio doors which lead into my garden and took this photograph of the stunning moonlight.  I had one of my BEST days yesterday, I feel the stunning moonlight gave me some beautiful energy that created moments of magic throughout my day.  I am very grateful for all that I have and I am very grateful for you here right now. Thank you, beautiful you, love Clarabelle.

The Stunning Moonlight

It’s 5.45am, I’ve worked all through the night
I look out of my window and see the stunning moonlight
I step into the garden, the birds tweet, tweet, tweet
The air is so tranquil, my heart whispers a beat
I am grateful for this moment, so special and rare
I gaze at the white circle, all day I could stare
I feel its magic, penetrating me
It’s watching me closely, setting me free
I feel its energy, uplifting my soul
It’s connecting with my spirit, engaging my goal
My day has not ended but yet it begins
My bed is calling but my heart it still sings
Goodbye Mr Moonlight, I’ll see you again
I enjoyed our conversation, now I’ll put down my pen

Sweet Balmaha Bay

Scotland has the most beautiful scenery, I am so grateful to be living here.  This next poem is inspired by my visit last year to Balmaha, Scotland (photo below) on a frosty winter’s day.  This magical little beauty spot left me with a diamond experience.  If you ever come to Scotland, this place is certainly worth a visit, you’ll never forget it.  Wishing you  a diamond day, lots of love Clarabelle.

Oh how I love, your beautiful face.
The silent lake, speaks many words,
A magical paradise, beneath the flight of birds.
My soul’s at home, when I visit you,
I feel at one, below the sky so blue.
As I tie a yellow ribbon, around the old oak tree,
I appreciate your world, for all to see.
The air is clean, fresh and new,
The shimmering sunlight, makes a stunning view.
And the many boats, who sail in leisure,
Uplifting spirits, you provide great pleasure.
In hail or rain, sunshine or snow,
Your tranquil beauty, will always show.
For the depths of your heart, are in everyone,
Sweet Balmaha Bay under the horizon sun.

The Water’s Edge

Yesterday I had this inner calling to go close to the water, so I did.  When I got there, I instantly felt at peace, surrounded by nature which was indeed nurturing my soul.  I then got my notepad out and I wrote the following poem. Today, listen to your calling, inner silence is when it’s at its loudest.  Clarabelle

The water's edge

The Water’s Edge

The water’s edge, sets my soul free,

Nature’s hands, are holding me.

Open space, silence in the lake,

This is real here, nothing seems fake.

A treasure island, where tranquility prevails,

A rower in the distance, sets his own sails.

***

The rain may be falling, but it is a beautiful sight,

Soft cloudy skies, birds beneath, in full flight.

The ripples on the water, come out to where I stand,

I take a deep breath in, and reach out my hand.

I feel no coldness, for love shares this place,

Its beauty is inside me, and puts a smile upon my face.
