Pamper someone

Today.

Cosset Mother Earth, and

Attend with care

To all her beings.

Indulge your loved ones, and

See to those who hurt.

Let others see to you.

Pamper someone

Today.

You will spoil nothing

By offering a plenty

In kindness

To others

And to you.

Sweet Nothings

a spot of shade

In the constant feed of drama

And five-minute-news of all-that’s-wrong

And all that must be done

And all that cannot yet

Or won’t be,

Seek a spot of shade

And a penchant for deep breathing.

Nurture moments of quietude

Of birdsong

Children’s laughter

And the breeze whispering

Sweet nothings to your soul.

Be at home

In the world.

In the spaces

Between

Here

And now

All the past times

And futures

To come.

Be at home

In your soul.

Let it inhabit

Your all

Let it welcome

You

Home.

May you find ample nourishment

In unforeseen places

And may your palate discern

True potential

Even amidst

Prickly spines.

May the sun warm your heart

Like a rain in the desert

To ripen fruits so refined

That they feed

All your needs

And your soul

Once again

Realigns.

Tailor your actions

To good mending.

Take care to not

Rip apart

What should be kept.

Adjust your thoughts

So they can fit your conscience

In its Sunday best.

Shape your ways

To outfit what your soul believes in

Sewn to perfect

Silhouette.

Attune to kindness

So it can help you

Choose

The right attire

For your heart.

Descend to Calm

If your head fleets up and flitters

Filled with too much

And too fast …

Change course

Decelerate and

Descend back to

Calm ground.

Beyond Farce

What lies beyond-DarwinBell

When farce becomes routine

And drama so outruns minutiae

That reason threatens

To abscond,

One cannot help but

Wonder

What’s beyond.

Qualm Balm

cat hug

When you fret in worry,

Field misgivings,

Try to still the shiver

Of concern

Of doubt

Of qualm.

Take a moment

To get grounded

And remember what you know

In soul, in heart, in mind:

Sooth exists.

It

Lives

Between the breaths

Of Love’s

Eternal

Balm.

When you’re out of juice

Depleted

Wrung out

Brain-mushed

Yawn-injected …

Take the time to rest.

When you’re harking for the days

Of face plant in spaghetti …

It’s time for slug-fest.

When you’re putting keys in fridge

And eggs in pockets …

Take the hint

And

Make a nest.
