A grave ink

Some authors write with a grave ink, of a dramatic pen dipped into their dark souls.

Reflections on hope

Hope is much like a cat in the Dark — you only know it's there by the reflection of its eyes — which means there is Light nearby.

—Terri Guillemets

Getting along, stopping not

We learn to wield our own strengths, and fear flips over — dead!

Foggy heavy-gray teary-eyed low-hanging
snow-stuffed melancholy winter clouds!

Impulsive wayward turbulent thick-swift-dark
tempestuous hail-angered storm clouds!

Sprinkling lighthearted fanciful breeze-drifted
rainbow-nestled April-hued springtime clouds!

Enormous white-fluffy fairydust-fringed
frolicsome sun-illumed giggling summer clouds!

Thunderous passionate restless rain-soaked
lightning-streaked July-dyed monsoon clouds!

Azure-skylit sunglow-slanted edge-gleaming
white-silver billowy contemplative autumn clouds!

Vivid vibrant blissful dawn-lit joy-beamed
daybreak-florid sunrise-tinted morning clouds!

Aimless airy midday-lazy wandering listless
mountaintop-floating leisurely afternoon clouds!

Amber-ablaze day's-end-pink amethyst ephemeral
smoky-embered evening-welcoming sunset clouds!

Lambent star-flanked luminous moon-haloed
glowing shadow-painted sky-lusty night clouds!

Peaceful bee-buzzing bird-chirping cloudless
clear-bright-blue days of warm-serene sunshine!

—Terri Guillemets

Titles waiting their turn: head in the clouds, on cloud nine, silver linings, clouded over, blue skies, over the moon, as right as rain, come rain or shine, saving for a rainy day, something in the wind, cloud reveries, cloud thesaurus, the clouds of life, cloud-happy, cloud-glee, cloudmore, my skies, nature's skies, sundry skies, assorted skies...

Thinking of us

Now is the flickering flame of a single candle
Forever—the endless light of a galaxy of stars.

Muted glare

Everything is too real, for an INFJ. Only fantasy — with its soft edges and magical healing creatures and sparkling beauty and plush hugs and golden-hour radiance and floral-everywheres and giddy, bouncing, perpetual youth of spirit — is tolerable.

In the tank

Sugar is a type of bodily fuel, yes, but your body runs about as well on it as a car would.

My heart beat so hard when I was near him, I feared he could hear my secret longing for him.

Spirit flows

Spirit flows. If your heart is feeling good, it spreads the word and before you know it your whole body feels great.

Tea tears

Teardrops of tea
glide down the kettle
Don't cry —
we'll make each other feel better.

I don't write every day,
but if I did...
     I'd be a writer.

Healing brains

Mother Nature is the most powerful force on the planet — but in the human realm, it's the Mind.

Early morning window

A lark challenges my heart every morning
I answer the call in the brightening dawn
Chirp chirp, yes I'll give it my best today!

Nature's beautiful dancers

Nature's beautiful dancers — flowers, water, leaves
Dancing to the music of God's sweet breeze.

Silly Tuesday questions

If ice cream is scooped but no one is there to eat it, does it still taste good?

You're missing out, dear

Angels will not disintegrate with logic, but they are more likely to fly for those who believe.
