Sparks: 31

It has been a very helpful thing to post an inspirational thought each Monday. It has become a meditation. I hope that perhaps it has fed another’s spirit as well. With that in mind and heart, I invited others to join me. I am continually boosted by the things shared through Sparks. Thank you all!

I truly do believe we are meant to be lights in this world. If we allow our light to shine, we can see where we are going. It is then that we can begin to truly see each other clearly. There is hope. Together, we can light up the entire world!

The journey of life is filled with many experiences, including both triumphs, and struggles. But, there is value in each step. We just have to keep going, learning, and growing,

On Sparks: 23, I shared some wise words by author Lauretta Hannon. I am sharing her practical and relatable wisdom today, too. I am thankful for her positive energy.

God Only Knows

Hearing this new song by the seasoned John Prine left me in tears. This is a song about oneself and to others, all the while managing to be a prayer to God. For me, it speaks of trying to do what is right and expected of me, but still being very human. I do walk the talk, though I admit that I stumble along the way. Those who love me forgive me, especially God. Because God only knows…I try, with every step. Peace.

There is an obvious universal need for more positive energy. The negative energy in the world has become thick and oppressive. Social media has become a part of this dark, negative storm. But, we can change that.

Prayer is a wonderful thing. It benefits the ones the prayer is for, as well as the one who is praying. Prayer brings one closer to God and His way. Prayer is the path and also the vehicle. Never stop praying. But, it should not end there. Actions are still needed to change the world.

How your hands can bring about a positive change is for you to decide. Be an advocate. There are letters to write, things to make, calls to place, and supplies to gather. Volunteer. There are babies to rock, mouths to feed, hands to hold, tears to dry. We can each do something. Use your gifts and your talents to change the world. Be the change.

A-Z: Requiem

The geese fly away
taking summer with them,
as autumn celebrates
in silent requiem.
Trees are adorned
in finest colour,
as seasons fade
one into another.
Cooler nights seep into days,
sunshine dissolves
into misty haze.
Winter whispers of
what has begun,
while autumn reminds us
Time waits for no one.

~McGuffy Ann Morris

This poem can be found in my book, Weeds. For me, it speaks of so much. What does it say to you?

Yin and yang is the balancing act of life. The yin in life is the sorrow. I believe that these sorrows are given to us for reasons. We may never know why, but that does not matter. What matters is that we grow from them. We need to take these sore places where life has dealt us a blow and own them. They become our battle scars. We can become stronger at the broken places if we allow it. Because, yes, I believe Rumi got it right. Namaste.

God is God

Today is Sunday. We are halfway through the A-Z Blogging Challenge. So, this is an Intermission of sorts. I am taking this opportunity to share one of my favourite songs, by one of my favourite singers. Written by Steve Earle, Joan Baez sings this best. Enjoy.

A-Z: Exist

Moments are imprinted within us,
become a part of us,
through the blood of each heartbeat,
each bead of sweat, each teardrop.
Memories fade into the eternal
abyss of time, while others are
archived forever in our hearts.
The soul mirrors what is within,
sustaining us through the
inescapable wasteland
of existence.

~McGuffy Ann Morris

This poem weighed heavily on me while it was forming.  When I write, it is always from my heart. However, it is often inspired by something external, taking time to form and reveal itself. This poem still makes me feel the rawness that I felt when I wrote it. I hope it moves you, too. Exist can be found in Weeds.
