OUR

Three Line Tales, Week 229

three line tales, week 229: someone trekking up the steps to the tower on top of Glastonbury Tor

Best times together are when we go on hikes or just being out in nature always made us both smile.

We knew that some days we could stay out for hours and talk and walk and just enjoy the nice breeze, but other days it would be too hot to stay out so we would turn around.

But today we got to really relax and we were prepared to walk and eat when we got hungry and we brought so much water. Oh how today will be one of the good days for us.

Your light

Photo by Brad Lloyd on Unsplash

shines brightly from with in you as you stand there in front of me.

Yes lately things have been overwhelming but your faith and strength has got you through it.

And no matter what has came or been thrown your way.

You allowed yourself a second to feel the frustration and then you prayed on it.

And soon that peace and calmness has washed over you leaving you with no worries.

For light has won the battle again, leaving the darkness scratching his head again.

Night

Dark

Day bright.

But all I feel and know is fading in front of me.

Like the street night that slowly goes out as the sunrises each morning.

Searching for clues that will solve what you need to know.

May turn out to be great or they may shake-up your life for good.

And once those secrets are our there is no going back to what you thought was the full truth.

I’m in

a mood and no matter how hard I seem to try to shake it off the darker it gets around me.

And I’m not sure my light will be enough to guide my way out of this mess I got myself into this time. 

I know that if I try things will be better but here I am trying to see the light in this situation and it just so hard this time to get through the journey that feels like its on a loop and when I feel the change about to happen it skips and there I am again facing the same stuff. 

There is no good outcome if I don’t get out of this moment soon and fast because I don’t want to be forgotten because I couldn’t get pass this gate of unwanted thoughts and feelings that trap you.

And once your in the ability to get out really is like living in a world with lights on and then it all shuts down and you have to use the strength and memory to get through it or you will be stuck inside your own mind forever. 

I just hope I get out in time for I’ve heard the click and I know this isn’t it for me this time around and hopefully this will be the last of this torture.

To think

of warmer days and to feel the warm always on me.

So cold outside and inside is making these days very hard.

As I grow cold very quickly and time doesn’t go by as fast as I would like.

I know warmer days are coming and I am really looking forward to so much more.

Today is cold now but soon it will warm up and nothing will be in my way as I begin to explore what this world has to offer me again.

To beat

the cold I had to put on my fur and have my lantern  guide the way as I travel back to my home on this almost dark night.

This winter has barely arrived and already it is cold and warm than back to cold and frankly I have had enough and I just want to cuddle up and not be bother with the cold air form outside.

But tonight I have to  acknowledge all that is going on around me for I have so much to look for and to look forward too.

For the winter has delivered me something to be grateful for.

Merry Christmas

 To everyone or happy Hanukkah.

I hope we all enjoy this day even if some of you have to work.

Just be grateful you get to see the day and share the joy with whoever you can.

Enjoy the time with family and friends and enjoy the little moments that will pop up through out the day.

And just know that even if you didn’t get what you wanted, I’m sure you got what you needed and if not don’t wait around for someone else to give it to you.

Because in just a few days it will be a new year and I hope you have plans to make things different but for now have a merry Christmas and I hope every moment of your day is blessed and full of love and laughter.

Blinded

 by the pain and frustration

That I don’t see the change that is happening around me.

You see I’ve been in the dark with just a flashlight of light and when that window of light shined down on me.

I didn’t notice something had awakened in me.

For it felt no different than the Tuesday before.

But, somehow the energy I was feeling felt so pure and powerful.

It wasn’t until I saw his eyes what I had been trying to see in my owns.

The look was light itself shining back at me with no darkness around and as he stepped cross to me.

I swear I saw an angel in Him and what to come next was nothing short of a miracle.

Me as I let go of these things that are holding me back.

It’s time to have fun to walk into the unknown with a smile on my face.

For I know it is a safer place for me then the ones I know of.

Today will be great for I’m ready for the joy that is waiting for me on the other side of this fountain.
