Beauty in the Ordinary

This is not about being brilliant, or extraordinary, it's not about wanting to be famous, or making headlines, or trying to impress...this about sharing a 'gift' each day with the world...to lift the spirit of people when they read this blog, to show them the beauty in the ordinary.
"And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it." Raold Dahl

V...This is what my house said to me today....

Your heart is like this old house
whose windows have been closed for so long,
But now have swung wide open letting in all the sunshine
that has been patiently waiting to enter.
And there is no hurry to fill every inch of this space.
The light moves slowly and gently
as the suns warmth is graciously received
as if it had never been shut out.

A wave of peace settles in this old space ,
this old heart of mine,
and as its walls move and shift
it hears the birds song,
and the cracks begin to heal.

In knowing
that it has been made strong,
it is once again
ready
to
love.
