Wings of the Wind

by Micha-el Cleveland

      I saw unbridled joy today
      A pleasant surprise
      I saw untethered elation
      Upon a child's face
      As he set his heart free
      By letting go, letting go, his shiny balloon
      When he first set his toy free
      I anticipated a sigh as his eye
      Searched within the sky
      I expected him to cry
      But he laughed as his friend danced
      On the wings of the clouds
      His laughter guided the eyes
      Of the schoolyard as they gazed in the skies
      And then the most astonishing thing occurred
      As they released their friends
      To dance among the clouds on the wings of the wind
      The din that rose,
      was the most beautiful laughter put upon the wind
      The One above had to smile to see their lovely joy
      His children made for him upon the winds with their toy
      They donated to him with unabated joy
      Upon the wings of the wind.

        I will never again think I can place my hand in a position
         to catch all the beauty in a rainbow's alive bright colors.
        I will not refuse them, they belong to me.
        Thinking as though I do not have to drink of the dark clouds
         drenched wet with their sour sorrows,
         there is no holding them back.
        I will not refuse them, they belong to me.
        Plainly seen it is a intermingling.
        Black is not pristine that stands alone,
         it is all colors that have been born.
        Adding white or black to any color brings new renditions.
        I will not refuse them, they belong to me.

I Shall Not Live in Vain

        Forever is composed of nows.

        Find ecstasy in life; the mere sense of living is joy enough.

        If I can stop one heart from breaking, I shall not live in vain.

        Beauty is not caused. It is.

        Unable are the loved to die, for love is immortality.

        Because I could not stop for death, He kindly stopped for me;

        The carriage held but just ourselves and immortality.

        The soul should always stand ajar, ready to welcome the ecstatic experience.

        Success is counted sweetest by those who never succeed.

        Dogs are better than human beings because they know but do not tell.

        Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul -

        and sings the tunes without the words - and never stops at all.

                          -Emily Dickinson

Like The Angel You Are

by Micha-el Cleveland

            There is no time within a moment
            The universe can unfold within
            This can strike you like lightening
            Streaking across your vision
            Revealing your inner wisdom
            No one can open this door for you
            Nor provide the key
            There is no door or key
            You hold the answers
            Within your heart, your soul,
            your love, your beauty,
            your Unity, your acceptance
            You are your hidden truth, your story
            Turn off the marketing
            Turn your back on fear
            And walk down your path with head held high
            Like the angel you are
            I care not about your beliefs
            I only hope you care what you believe
            May your beliefs be rooted like the tree
            As clean as the air
            Nourishing as water
            And burn like fire

            Meditate Everyday
            In Your Own Way

I Hide In My Mind

by Charles Finch

I hide in my mind because I feel safe there,
Not allowing myself to go to that land of great despair.
For if I allowed the despair to creep in,
I would probably make many bad decisions
And that to me would be a horrible sin.

With that being spoken and that being said,
Hopefully one thing I can get off my chest and out of my head.
We all have some purpose in our life, even if we don't realize it,
When destiny is upon us, we ourselves become a light.

For the ones who see and can tell the difference
between the phonies and those of us that are truly true,
You have what it takes to make it and one day your light
will shine on somebody too.

For they will see and learn what had made them blind,
To teach another along the way, so they are not left behind.
That's when the chains are broken and a positive life begins again.
Hope this made sense and helps you in your life.
From me to you my very new friend.
