Monday Musings: Just One Smile

When I met this graceful Snowy Egret just around dawn yesterday, I felt my heart was smiling.  And I remembered a beautiful poem I had found some time ago. It spoke to me about reaching out, supporting one another, and brightening someone’s day. This is how it goes.

Let my soul smile through my heart

And my heart smile through my eyes,

That I may scatter rich smiles in sad hearts.

Paramahansa Yogananda

I thought about it and realized there are sad hearts, for various reasons, all around me. Both physically and virtually. Known and unknown to me. I was walking and contemplating this when I saw a beautiful cloud on the sunrise sky. Whether synchronicity or not, it delivered the message.

If I could help rekindle even one smile in a sad heart this week, I would be happy. Just one smile.

Have a wonderful week. May your heart smile.

 

Quiet Mind

How does it feel
When your mind is quiet
All chatter is gone
Churning has ceased
And your thoughts rest
On the shores of silence?

How does it feel
When light slowly seeps in
Hope reappears
Gratitude takes hold
And the quiet space
Is filled with peace?

 

 

 

 

Bridge of Thought

Walking on a bridge of thought

I arrive in a peaceful garden

where the birds sing of renewal

and the light is touchable by hand.

I will remain here in silence

let all worries and requirements

escape and slowly float away

leaving my soul refreshed

and my mind amazed by life.

Have a refreshing weekend everyone!
