Close your eyes to see.


When the eyes are shut

A story is told

Memories of the past

Visions of the future

Adventures to go

Visiting the worlds

That only the soul knows

With mindfulness


And just being still

You open the heart

So that it can be healed

Learning to let go

What to stand for

What is worth your time

Or even your emotions

To be able to say no

When you feel like saying no

Pay attention

To what is told

When the eyes are shut

And the mind is in glow

Cleansing the body

Like the ground and stones

Each one different

Yet equally just as bold

To help you on this journey

As you tell your story

For are loved

In all of your glory

I write to clear my mind. To get out of the fog of daily confusion. An artist by heart. To live, laugh, and grow.
