As calmness stands can wishes move?
Hopes gravitate, faith helps improve.
Do quiet minds tumble and fall?
They calmly connect with it all.
All lessons transform to outlines.
Will inner compass guide through time?
Insecure thoughts all lead to traps.
Can bright actions design new maps?
Do kind deeds help warm light expand?
Positive thoughts always enhance.
Will this appease the need for more?
A brand new view can open doors.
Sweat off the brows brings a new day.
Can shiny worlds sweep gloom away?
Allow the conscience to be right.
Does fate offer paths to insight?
Is night and day a true contrast?
Perceptions can be made up fast.
Can opposites ever rejoin?
Duality is a flipped coin.
Sun dances in showers of rain.
Does self acceptance wash off pain?
Feel good inside from head to feet.
Can inner love make hearts complete?

I love the question and answer styling of this one, well done.
Thanks for reminding me of Calisto’s Celestial Dream. A story I wrote using the picture you chose.
Thanks so much. Happy it brought you good memories.💕
The story is on !y WP I thought it rude to link so mentioned the memory.
“Can bright actions design new maps?”
One good deed can change the world; on an individual level, a good deed can change the trajectory of the person who did the good deed. Something positive, it is taught, will lead to more “positivity” in that person’s life.
Absolutely. Thanks so much for sharing.💕
Beautiful write Grace!
These lines are oh so true and wise!
“When your ice-cold heart melted
And you let me in.”
Ok, I stumped you and me… that was to Ken… I only noticed it, when I went to comment on KK’s post and these words came on his post too and I thought.. “oh no”, I just sent those to Grace. So see, I’m not going crazy.. at least not today… Hahahah 😂
Here’s what I loved about yours:
“Perceptions can be made up fast.
Can opposites ever rejoin?
Duality is a flipped coin.”
Thank you, Cindy. You’re the best.💕🥰💕
🤣🤣🤣 I got a kick out of reading this beautiful line but let it slide since I too enjoyed them. Ken is awesome.💕
hahahaha I figured.. ha he is the best. ❤️
