Uplifting Poems & Inspirational Poetry

Excerpted from The Elusive Here & Now



Gentle flakes
Soft and white
Drifting, falling
Through the night

In silent wonder
As I slept
Glistening secrets
Darkness kept

With morning light
Appearing bright
Peering out
Brought pure delight

The mundane world
I thought I knew
Had been transformed
To something new

The filters
I’d been seeing with
Could not survive
This viewpoint shift

It shocked me into
Present time
Beyond the trappings
Of my mind

Here and now
In awe and wonder
Dissolving illusions
I’d been under

Nature’s beauty
So intensely real
Hearts spill open
And people feel

In this space
We come alive
In this joy
Our spirits thrive

Seek the beauty
In all things
Feel gratitude
For what life brings

Stop and smell the roses
Breathe the sparkling air
The magic in that flake of snow
Is lurking everywhere.
