Isolation with Hope (tanka)*

dark dreams encircled~

ominous thoughts void of life~

seek internal peace~

lowered in supplication~

divinity will enlighten

*Note: Each day though there seems no end in sight, do not let this darkness (fear) over take the light (hope). Please watch my musical choice for this verse in it entirety. It is quite beautiful visually.

According to the Encyclopedia of World Religions Sufis believe that: β€œthe human spirit being a direct emanation from the divine Command, is therefore an emanation of God himself, and could find its highest aim only in the obliteration of its illusory selfhood and absorption into the Eternal Reality. I love Rumi’s poetry it has always gave me comfort in moments of sadness or despair. For further understanding I have provided two links.

Restless (tanka)*

darkness speaks loudly

unsettling thoughts occupy

sleep becomes unknown

wakeful eyes watch time tick by

awaiting Beloveds return

*Note: we’ve all been there, when the brain hits overdrive (for a million different reasons) and won’t power down. Sometimes it’s just that the person you’re used to sleeping with isn’t there. In the meantime here is something to listen to till sleep arrives. πŸŒŽβœŒπŸ»πŸ’™ 😴 πŸ’€

Invisible Path (haiku)*

atmosphere moves shifts~

days thoughts hang as heavy fog~

awaits clarity

*Note: The photo was taken today by me, of a mountain trail that runs outside my back door. This song fits the mood. Also I enjoy this cover version

The original is a song written by Canadian singer-songwriter Neil Young, recorded in 1971 but not released until 2007 on the album Live at Massey Hall 1971.
