Happy #ForgivingFridays everyone! Yay! This is an opportunity for you to share about forgiveness & post about it ANY DAY this week! See guidelines below. ❤ You can post whatever inspires YOU to forgive and choose love. Examples: take a photo, or a situation you’re not at peace with, or share a quote or write a poem like I did!
Today’s Forgiving Fridays is Seeing Through the Eyes of Peace.
I’d like to write a poem for Forgiving Fridays. This poem is about seeing through the eyes of love…. Seeing that those places in ourselves that seem “broken” are actually beautiful and whole …. Realizing that they are giving us a peek into the great love that exists inside. I dedicate this poem to all of us – sometimes the things that seem most challenging offer the greatest opportunity to relax, let go, and see the many facets of our true nature.
Angel Kisses For Peace
Ah, it is one small step, from
“I am broken” oh no, I can’t even see to
“I am whole” it is cavernous, a deep, dark abyss
That cries out inside, “save me, Small ness engulfs
every aspect of this world, inside. I try, I try
to swim through, the ache, the deep dark trench that has no
END. And I breathe, because in the emptiness that is there,
Lies the good beast that is held, touched, in the arms of
the Angel who says,
“Who is the beast? Take out the last two letters, oh and also
the “a”, and all there is, is “be”. In “beast”.”
The love you seek, forgive and forget, it may
it may, and oh Beloved, it may elude you. Once may not
give the be-lieve that you are the – step – so one, more, beauteous,
time, step in and say, “I forgive.” There I am also.
Here are photos of my new plant (in my new apt 🙂 ). I cut back the stems so that it could grow. It may seem “broken” and what’s true is the branches are glorious examples of flourishing – with the help of an angel!
I am grateful for all of you who contribute to Forgiving Fridays. I learn so much from you! Here are this week’s contributions:
Etta of Simply Etta D. gave us wonderful tips for gaining altitude and getting inspired to keep moving in the direction of our hearts – based on her gorgeous personal experience. Thank you Etta!
Gabrielle of Bone & Silver shared a profound post where she explored the true essence of love and practiced forgiveness, in response to an argument with her partner.
Frank of Poetry, Short Prose and Walking shared a haibun and reflections on the far-reaching events of kindness – kindness beyond counting or expecting anything in return. Beautiful.
Miriam of The Shower of Blessings wrote a gratitude poem on the plane J that is full of love and compassion and an exquisite experience of thankfulness.
Pragalbha of Infinite Living contributed such an authentic poem on looking for love and struggling with it. I opened to such compassion when I read it!
Xenia of Whippet Wisdom gave us a haiku – plus great photos of her dogs! – on being grateful for the little things when something unexpected happens. I learned a lot.
And in case you missed it from last week:
Stella of Giggles & Tales wrote an exquisite poem on the sacred act of loving another person and how giving can open us to the divine in life.
I’d like to end today with a forgiveness:
I forgive myself for judging myself as broken. I forgot to look at myself through the eyes of loving, and that I am held in peace every step of the way. ❤
And a quote for your day:
“Looking through the “eyes of a child”, what evidence (signs) of peace are present right now?” ~John-Roger
I love you.
