You Are.


Go gentle today with self.

 Muse a few moments and find 

a still space

Tread with care, nurture your
special nature.

Stay and meditate a while on
just who you are.

You are a marvel of beautiful
life, you are a star.

 So today -  do go gentle.

    A message we all need to heed from time to time. Time to enjoy singleton self.... a few years under the belt, all the more reason.

          To express so much optimism, positivism and hope in our times must require a special talent and temperament. A very reassuring write.

          • Fay Slimm.

            A much appreciated comment my friend - - we all need the optimism of quiet contemplation at times and so pleased you liked the read.

              • Joe Dawson

                Good advice dear Fay, in a hectic world a little time to one's self is a priceless boon. Not all will heed your words, but those who do will profit enormously I think. Joe

                • Fay Slimm.

                  You are so right in that time spent for introspection is a boon and can be priceless - your comment is much appreciated dear Joe
