A Poem for your New Year
This morning on my walk with Willow I came across many beautiful things. This photo captured a fraction of the beauty of the frost today. It reminded me of this poem and I offer it here to you with much love...
Take my hand.
We will walk.
We will only walk.
We will enjoy our walk
without thinking of arriving anywhere.
Our walk is a peace walk.
Our walk is a happiness walk.
Then we learn
that there is no peace walk;
that peace is the walk;
that there is no happiness walk;
that happiness is the walk.
We walk for ourselves.
We walk for everyone
always hand in hand.
Walk and touch peace every moment.
Walk and touch happiness every moment.
Each step brings a fresh breeze.
Each step makes a flower bloom under our feet.
Kiss the Earth with your feet.
Print on Earth your love and happiness.
Earth will be safe
when we feel in us enough safety.

I believe happiness never leaves us, even if sometimes we forget it's there. So, my wish for you all is that you remember just how happy you are, as many times as your heart beats, forever. :o)
