REMEMBER THE CATERPILLAR WHO HAD THE COURAGE TO FLY

REMEMBER THE CATERPILLAR WHO HAD THE COURAGE TO FLY

Remember the caterpillar,

The caterpillar who decided to grow,

To sacrifice

And become more.

Without knowing the end result

The caterpillar followed instinct,

Instinct to be patient, adapt and change.

And it did,

Because it believed it could.

The caterpillar metamorphosed

Into a butterfly,

And with it’s mesmerising wings

Had the courage to fly.

Cherishing Life’s Chimes

Ten thousand stories I have to tell,

Some things I picked up around a wishing well.

I heard ten different stories a thousand times

Little tips on know-how and to cherish life’s chimes.

They said that’s life it’s the way it goes

Sometimes you get it right

Sometimes you don’t know

Just put on a smile

Go with the flow

Put one foot ahead

Find a way to go.

You know its love when your heart breaks

You can’t help sometimes from being late

Sift through the keepers and lose the fakes

Hold on to mementos from picnics by the lake.

They said that’s life it’s the way it goes

Sometimes you get it right

Sometimes you don’t know

Just put on a smile

Go with the flow

Put one foot ahead

Find a way to go.

Find a hobby that will keep you sane

Don’t watch lightning through the windowpane

Jump on a pile of leaves you’ve raked

Stop holding on to things that hate

Dance in the city in the pouring rain

Remember it’s okay to tear the pain.

They said that’s life it’s the way it goes

Sometimes you get it right

Sometimes you don’t know

Just put on a smile

Go with the flow

Put one foot ahead

Find a way to go.

Just do what you do

Go with the flow

Put on a smile

Find a way to go.

Which colour would you choose?

Which colour would you choose?

Blue for me but to be honest I love all the colours!

This weeks theme for @communitywhp_ is daydreams #communitywhp_daydreams

Chosen by the lovely @magiclittlesquares

Caught in a daydream,

A revere.

Absorbed in a moment,

Staring at the balloon tree.

Happy day dreaming x

Find a moment to take a moment

The weekend is here (the last weekend of January!) Busy moments have already taken hold in our home. Feels like everything is on fast forward. Has it been the same for you?

The beach always comes to mind when things get hectic.

One of our goals for the weekend it to find a moment to take a moment… .

Find a moment,

Take a moment

To evaluate

To breath

To rejuvenate

To appreciate

I have a little dream, it whispers in the morning…

I have a little dream

It whispers in the morning “please make time for me,

Just a little moment,

While you have a cup of tea.”

I make my dream a promise

“Let’s check in a two”

Then I go about my day,

Listing things to do.

It’s all so very busy

And soon enough it’s two.

My dream is right on time,

But I am nowhere to be seen

I remember I missed the meeting and think

I’ll show up at three

But then I have that thing,

So I don’t

I have a little dream,

It shouts in the evening

“Where were you?”

I say “I’m very sorry,

Tomorrow is anew.

Let’s arrange a meeting,

Just me and you

I’ll be there, let’s make before two.”

My dream says “will you really?

You’ve promised for a while.

I’ll only wait for so long,

Make some time,

Don’t let it pass you by.”

Why wait until one day to do what you love?

Don’t wait until one day

To do what you love

When…

Every duck has been discovered and placed in a row

When…

You have found greener grass and watched it grow

When…

You have cleared away all the winter snow

Deep down you know

Something is there

The subject of your daydream

Your personal creativity,

Whatever it be

Its waiting for you to take a chance

To accept the inspiration

And embrace initiation into a new existence,

The one you describe as one day

Why wait until one day to do what you love?

Today could be the day,

If you want it to be

The chance is yours make

Whatever it be,

Set your personal creativity free.

While the tea brews

While the tea brews

I’ll think of you,

Plan my day,

Make a list of things to do

I’ll dream for a moment,

Just a moment

And contemplate impossible things

To make possible

I’ll pack away a dish or two

Remember the books that are overdue,

And subscriptions to renew

All while the tea brews
