Q is for Quiet

Oh what bliss are those moments where the mind is quiet! We tend to believe that what we think is always a fact. The truth is, when we believe that every thought we have is true, we open ourselves up to a whole world of pain and stress. Don’t let your mind be so loud. By recognising that our thoughts are not facts, we find a lot more peace and quiet. Allow thoughts to float in and out of your mind without judgement. Shhhhh! They are just thoughts.

don’t believe all thoughts
shush any unhelpful ones
to quiet the mind

Darkness of the Deep

Shimmering sunshine
glides across the peaceful blue,
masking those who lurk;
sagaciously awaiting
in the darkness of the deep.

The Road To Hana

Cars, bikes and buses.
Winding; clinging to cliffsides.
Peaceful forest views,
showcasing nature’s wonders,
along the road to Hana.

since his death she spent
the days strolling archways of
their favourite park
never realising he was
walking peacefully with her
