42 - Mesmerized

Jan. 29, 2019

The blue is endless,
until it touches the other blue.
The white fluffs come and go,
Sliding across the blue.
The other white fluffs come and go also,
sliding through the other blue.

I’m mesmerized.
I stare, my mind is finally quiet.
I can think of something I haven’t thought of in a long time.

The breeze brushes my skin,
and the warmth of the yellow warms me within.

I’m hypnotized.
I pause.
Remembering what happened is sad,
but it reminds me of the importance of living each day.
Living each day is not just living from one day to the next,
It’s more than that.
It’s taking it in, into your innermost places.
It’s pausing and thinking,
what can I do to help make this world a little better today?
It’s putting into action your dreams,
it’s not living the same old nightmare day in and day out.

I never get tired of doing something positive.
Something that helps the world be a better place.
The feeling of accomplishment runs deep into my heart.

The day my life changed
it wasn’t just about that day, or that time, of my life.
It was to change all of my life.
There’s no point in wishing life could be as it once was.
Those sands have blown away
and the land has taken on a new shape.
The new shape is just a satisfying as the old,
just in a different way.

I watch the small dark shapes glide gently through the blue.
I watch the brown, black, and white shapes scamper
through the browns and tans and greys.
I feel the warmth of the yellow in the blue,
warming my skin as it’s supposed to do.

I’m captivated.
I’m wondering.
This amazing site is unfolding before me,
I’m thinking.
I’m remembering,
and smiling.
None of that beauty,
none of the beauty of our lives,
lasts forever.

My memories also make me sad,
knowing I will never again have what I once had.
But that is in the past,
there’s nothing I can do about it now.
I can smile because I remember what I had.
I smile because I see there is still so much
beauty to be experienced.

I hope you can take some time,
time for yourself,
be alone,
think, notice things around you,
let the yellow above, in the blue, warm your skin.

Where the blue meets the blue,
where the greens and browns meet the blue.
Where the blue water meets the blue sky.
Where the white frothy tops of waves float across the blue water.
Where the white puffy clouds float through the blue sky above.

I hope you can take some time,
Some time to be alone,
On a mountainside,
Watching the hawks float on the winds in the blue above.
On a boulder high on the side of a valley,
watching the rabbits and deer in the meadows below.

I hope you can take some time to be mesmerized,
to stare,
to think,
to wonder.
To be thankful for what you have, your life.
