May my memories be yours

May my memories be yours

May you travel and not tire.
May all your past and present moments
be captured on paper.
May sunshine laugh in your face
and the moon kiss you to sleep.
May the view be as sublime
on your side as it is on mine.
May my memories be yours
on this Monday morning.

  1. That was wonderful 🙂

    • Thank you! This planet is getting too crowded to not share memories. We can rub elbows across the ether of our minds. Glad to have you along for the ride!
      Tyler 🙂

    Oh I do love a “blessing” poem, especially today after waking to the horrible news in Boston.

    • Thank you! I wrote this before the horrible tragedy occurred, but would not have changed a word even if I knew what had happened in Boston. We must stay positive and not lose hope for humanity. Goodness shines through everyday and I will not let someone’s indifference cloud my sunshine. My thoughts and prayers are with the families at or near the bombing – I ask them to hold onto hope instead of hatred or fear.
      May you have a blessed tomorrow today, my friend.
      Tyler 🙂

    Lovely. And I agree with Gallivanta.
    But there are so many lovely people who steadily carry on giving love, peace, kindness and smiles, if only they showed as well as those who give only hate.
    I’ve been looking at photos this morning on Facebook of three lads accused of murdering a homeless man. There is no love or peace in their faces – they have none to give because they have received none. They may have been totally different.

    Have you any turtle poems?

    • Thank you, Liz! I agree. Whether or not a person is kind is, in part, determined by their upbringing. However, we need to cultivate caring and compassionate souls by leading by example. When acts of injustice are met with fear and hatred, we give in to the dark shroud of evil. It clouds our vision with the same indifference that breathed life into the unspeakable horror and chaos. I believe that what goes around, comes back around to create a sort of moral equilibrium. The positive energy we inject into this planet will fuel the brightest stars, illuminating the black abyss of space and shedding light on the coexistence of hope and humanity. Forgiveness of another’s indifference is the hardest pill to swallow, but it is what makes us human and separate from irrational beasts. Through punishment, we take the easy route, not asking the harder question, “What can I do to make life better for someone other than myself?” I’m sorry for going on such a rant. I just met you on WordPress and I’ve probably already scared you off. I’m just trying to stay positive and compassionate under these senseless circumstances.

      On another note, I do have some turtle poems you can check out. You could probably just type in “turtle” on the search button of my blog’s main page and it will pull up the poems, pictures and essays.

      I hope you are having a great day. Stay positive and nothing can break your spirit.
      Tyler 🙂

    I need t find some friends like you out here in the real world. No one seems to share my enthusiasm for hiking a trail that didn’t exist until I made with nothing but a granola bar and my camera!

    • I’ve been able to find a few kindred spirits like you on WordPress, but unless they leave a comment or have something in their “about me” section, I will never know about any shared passions. I’ve had this blog going a month now and it’s been really enjoyable. My muse is Mother Nature and she is with me wherever I go. Glad you are along for the ride! I look forward to reading more of your blog as well. Hope you have a pleasant night 🙂
