Welcome unexpected blessings,

Always.

Welcome

The robin song echoing from a twig,

The smile of a cute face down the street,

The nurturing scent of fresh soil,

The smooth fragrance of olive oil.

Welcome

The acrobatic seagull in the wind,

The blotch of sunlight above grey clouds,

The dead leaves dancing in a whirlwind,

The morning sky that mistily clouds.

Welcome

The heron gazing its pond like a king,

The crow flying on its black magic wing.

But not all of them look like a blessing,

Some are disguised and unleash hurting.

Things in life don’t happen to you,

They happen for you.

Welcome unexpected blessings,

Always.

The Blindfold Smile

Many paths

Many forks

Many gateways.

From a bird’s eye perspective

Observe it blindfold and smile:

You don’t need to know.

On the road,

Sometimes the grime, the smog, the pain

The lines, the fog, the rain

Appear to be dark and vivid.

Please, observe:

They’ve no true meaning, only the mind labels.

Let there be the light of your gaze, now:

From awareness, you move with the Universe.
