I read the blog whose link I posted above – and it brought sunshine to me on this gloomy, gray Friday morning. I hope it brightens your day, too. It is so true… we can’t rely on outward circumstances to bring us our joy. The door opens inward!

When things look cloudy and gray
Just turn your focus away
From the things that are dark and gloomy
Let joy spring from your heart today.

Life IS an amazing journey
It DOES all begin and end with LOVE
So open the door to your heart’s love
And let JOY bring you strength from above.

You may be facing some darkness
Your skies may be cloudy and gray
But they don’t have to dampen your spirits
Let the Son shine in to brighten your day.

Have a bright and beautiful Friday.

Garnering Gratitude


Have you tried your hand at 
Haiku/Senryu Poetry?

This post on Facebook inspired me
to try my hand at Senryu
using the human emotion of gratitude.

Haiku/Senryu Poetry 

Every word in the Haiku must begin with the same letter.

When written in English, it generally follows the syllabic pattern 5-7-5

Haiku/Senryu Poem (also called Human Haiku) is an unrhymed Japanese verse usually written in the present tense and only references to some aspect of human nature or emotions. Senyrus possess no references to the natural world and thus stand out from nature/seasonal Haiku.

If You Were Busy


My husband’s great-grandmother, Laura Foster, was an amazing woman. She lived 98 years. She remembered the day her mother cried because Abraham Lincoln was shot.

Great-Grandma Laura Foster was a talented, always busy woman who spoiled her great-grandchildren with a consistently tempting, freshly stocked cookie jar. She shared her talents generously, appreciated, collected, and wrote inspiring poetry, and created beautiful hooked rugs, one for each great-grandchild.

I just discovered one of Laura Foster’s favorite poems this week while going through some old family scrapbooks and albums. Let me share a poem with you that she copied into her scrapbook.

If You Were Busy

If you were busy being kind,
Before you knew it, you would find
You’d soon forget to think t’was true
That somebody was unkind to you.

If you were busy being glad,
And cheering people who were sad,
Although your heart might ache a bit,
You’d soon forget to notice it.

If you were busy being good,
And doing just the best you could,
You’d not have time to blame some man
Who’s doing just the best he can.

If you were busy being true
To what you know you ought to do,
You’d be so busy you’d forget
The blunders of the folks you’ve met.

If you were busy doing right,
You’d find yourself too busy quite
To criticize your neighbor long
Because he’s busy being wrong.

R. Foreman, poet

 

Let me add a stanza of my own – in tribute to Great-Grandma Foster:

If you were busy being wise,
You’d see the world through kinder eyes.
With a heart of love, you’d live to share
Your blessings with folks everywhere.

Laura Foster certainly shared hers.
Are you busy sharing your blessings, too?
