Simplify Life an Acrostic Six

Simplicity is a great goal if you wish to free up much toil, leaving behind less carbon to sort and making certain what you keep is important.

If you but take the time to value each thing that gives you a sparkle or lack certain zing, you might find it’s true that what’s coveted will do, or you can toss it for another to do.

My philosophy in life has not changed so much, if I can make it simpler I will do so in a touch, leaving the clutter for someone to stash, is much work for others and who needs that mess?

Pause, breathe and hold that which matters and let go of things that cause you much bother.

Letting go is simply creating a place, as each time you do this your heart finds a space.

Each time you let go, your heart finds a way to allow for the good things in life, not erased, like feelings, like love, like comfort, like joy, like all the things immaterial to enjoy.

There you have it! That’s my Six Sentence Story for this week. Care to join us? Here’s the LINK


I Am Jealous of Leo

I Am Jealous of Leo

Brothers, sisters, this is true
I have a story to tell to you

Years ago I learned of love
from a soul who has moved to places above

Leo Buscaglia is his name, a man of fame
He’s known for the Love books and lectures he gave

It was quite the movement so many years past
Love is truly something that lasts

Aside from his story of letting go and loving
There’s another one written that I find so moving

The name of the book is The Way of The Bull
There’s nothing quite as moving as the places he’d go

You see, Leo traveled to Asia, but not by tradition
No fancy hotels or sites of illusion

Leo traveled the way of the bull
In the spirit of Zen on these trips he would go

To gain such insight of the way of mankind
And finding the nature of man to unwind

The wealth of the story, although it’s not long
Is taking the chance to release your big strong

Allowing the moments of life to unfold
For truly the best things of life are not gold

It’s walking barefoot because they’ve no shoes
It’s sharing your undies when they gave you foods

It’s longing for loving and not for the junk
It’s giving your all with cheer and with spunk

So, yes I am jealous of Leo, it’s true
For to travel abroad such a way I’d pursue

Maybe one day, when I am old and gray
Nary much time left, I best find the way

Then again, when I look at my land of milk and honey
I needn’t travel far to see what is of plenty

So, jealous I am, but unable I’m not
It’s finding the joy in what is in my lot

So, there you have it! This is Day 7 of National Poetry Month and today’s prompt from Robert Lee Brewer’s Poetry Asides:
For today’s prompt, write a jealous poem. Maybe you’re jealous. Or maybe someone else is jealous of you–or someone else. Whether envious of another or suspicious of a partner, dive deep into this emotion today.
