The Power of Reading

image

Read my child

as much as you can

Read about other people

in far away lands

for it will expand your mind

and your heart

you will never be lonely

even when we are apart.

 

Read to know where you will stand

to make the world a better place

and build ideas upon demand

 

Read to discover yourself

and make of you a masterpiece

Read all the great books on the shelf

they will enrich your imagination.

Reading can take you to any destination

 

The power of reading is amazing

So read my child and you will see

You can create your own fascination.

 

 

Sunflowers

Sunflowers

Sunflowers speak

A different language

That no other flower can

But when they speak to me

Somehow I understand

 

They stand tall in attention

listening very  carefully

To the songs of the angels

singing gleefully

their message is to spread your love

completely and openly

as often as you can.

This is why I try to paint

Sunflowers like Van Gogh

Although they may be a little rough

I know one thing is for sure.

I follow through with the message

Sunflowers were  created to make.

Love is the most important thing in life

Make no mistake.

 

 

 

 

 

 

My Whimsical Park

NEW Listen to a recording of Whimsical Park by Melba Christie. Please Leave comments.

 

My whimsical park is the

wonderland where my inner child

dreams of tomorrow

even when tomorrow is already today.

Yesterday’s dream

goes back into the fertile

mind of a new dreamer

ready to imagine

the peaceful world

I have longed for

all my life.

My whimsical park,

playground for lovers

of nature,

sacred turf,

no forbidden fruit to pick,

just stillness and love

to gain.

Whimsical Park

One Thought

One thought dripped down reluctantly,

into the vast and lonely

sea of forgotten thoughts.

As it sank into oblivion

and fused with notions unconfined,

it believed it would be accepted at last,

but it was not.

It succumbed along with deep thinking,

proposed in silence, stillness and solidarity.

Philosophies never noted nor known

by great thinkers.

One thought that could have been

a contender, comprehended by the

masses of non thinkers,

with open hearts

to a lonely thought of peace.
