The sky and you

Standard

when the sky is on fire

when blue clouds serenade the mountains

when rain clouds send raindrops falling

when the rainbow arches over the sky

in a myriad of colors

I see you in all the hues of the sky

Quote of the Week: Is this all you want in life?

Standard

“The culture doesn’t encourage you to think about such things until you’re about to die. We’re so wrapped up with egostical things, career, family, having enough money, meeting the mortgage, getting a new car, fixing the radiator when it breaks. We’re involved in trillions of little acts just to keep going . So we don’t get into the habit of standing back and looking at our lives and saying, Is this all? Is this all I want? Is something missing?”-Morrie Schwartzt

Life: Sugar and Salt

Standard

Everything has a reason of happening and a purpose. Sometimes we question too much and miss the whole point. Things might seem harsh at some times, but I guess sometimes we deserve it, for it to better us. Taking an example of salt and sugar, salt might be sour/bitter to your tongue when taken raw with nothing else. But the same salt added to something else, it gives it taste and it brings out the sweetness. Same with life, we might be having a salt experience and we think we’re unlucky, little do we know that the same experience makes us better. Just hanging on, and we’re on a different level altogether.

Sugar, on the other hand, is sweet. But the same sugar added to some other things makes it worse. Kill the taste.

Appreciate every moment. Because no matter how good or bad a situation is, it either makes us better for the right reason or otherwise.

When I Am Gone

Standard

When my soul leaves my body and this life sets me free,
deep in the forest is where I will be.

Take up my ashes and go grab some seed,
make it some seed from a large apple tree.

Find you a spot where the sun hits the ground,
dig a small hole and there lay me down.

Cover me up right there with a seed,
let’s see if together we can’t grow a tree.

Regardless or not if a tree ever grows,
I’m deep in the forest where I wanted to go.

You carried me there and then set me free.
To tell you the truth that’s heaven to me,
deep in the forest among all the trees.
Carried by people I loved and loved me.

Thinking of You

Standard

When I’m alone
In the dark
I wonder what
Dreams you’re dreaming
What adventures you’re having
Where is your soul roaming
We are so close
So wondrously close
You and I
That even thousands of miles
Away I think
If I blow you a kiss
You’ll feel it
I smile while I wait
Alone in the dark
