Interesting when one comes to think
of the simple lessons learned
by the others around us
being family, friends or even enemies
but of all, it is those silent ones
the animals who we make family
also the closest of friends
the cats, dogs or even birds
lizards, rats or maybe its a ferret

Just a simple look
we tend to get the gist
of what they are saying
maybe the way they just lay
tells us the moods and intentions
playful, hunting or simply sleepy
hungry and even like us
craving a little attention from touching.

animals bring magic to us daily
a smile, a laugh, and inspiration…
through the silence of their beingness
I have learned to relax and I will be fine
stressing out just isn’t in their nature
so we human can learn a lot
from those two or four footed friends.
perhaps it’s time to realize that. ~jh

The Hug of Words

The Hug of Words

{unknown artist}

{unknown artist}

Words reach out like a hug
making the cold distance get closer
and warmer
the heart connection stronger
the reason for being more worthy

simple sayings
of gratitude,
of appreciation,
Of support,
Of love!

makes the tough times not so bad
helps with the seeming depth of darkness
somehow not so dark
that ray of light at the end
begins to shine within

the internet brings people together
in ways, that boggle the mind
yet we once had pen pals we wrote to
to bring the big world a little closer

sharing stories and simply being real
with that stranger out in the horizon
realizing we are mirrors
shining as a brilliant candle or star
in the darkness of living life

makes us breathe a little easier
knowing someone else understand
or is listening
making the bad times worth living
as we grow closer to our potential
because those words feel like a hug
making the cold world much warmer. ~jh

Dazzling Stars of Harmony

Dazzling Stars of Harmony

Moon of stillness
yet dancing in the night sky
are you humming your own tune?
Can I hear it too?

Smooth and silky
like satin on the skin.
My mind quiets
As the breeze sweeps the worries away

Looking at stars
Dazzling above
When the voice said softly

Come… come with me now
into the darkness,
your dream-time magic and mystery.

Come with me into your potential
Be willing to enter the void of your beingness
your seeming pain and discomfort…
into the infinity… the mystery.

Your dreams are your process made real
Your dreams show you the way,
Revealing breadcrumbs and ease.
Allow the darkness to reveal your light.

Be receptive to life’s gifts
it is the nature balance or movement of this journey.
Trust this moment
and allow the receptivity
to complete the circuit of love.

Follow the shimmering trail of stardust
to find a different way of seeing, hearing and being.
Harmonize with your present situation
Harmony carries you the way home.
Listen closely to your intuition, act now.
Follow where your heart pulls you.

Releasing the limits of your situation…
the music of your soul is your key
find your note and be love.
be luminous.
be the harmony.
be home.
be love. ~jh
