One Night…

~*~

~*~

Lying under the blanket of night…
Stars sparkle their way through the black backdrop…
Creating illusions of images to please each soul…

~*~
Waiting for a star to fall…
Waiting to wish my secret wish…
I stare intently…hoping…
They are oblivious of me and my desirous intention…

~*~
Still I watch…
Still I wait…

~*~
Longing for that one fleeting moment…
They continue their twinkling show…

~*~
Still I wait…
Still I watch…

~*~
Night…
Your playground…
My wishing place…

~*~

      • Beloved Christina – I am holding you in heart — actually escaped for an hour yesterday – down the road to see the ocean ~ launched a prayer for you (and your wishes) — it wasn’t night, but the tides seemed to respond 🙂 xo

        • Oh Robyn!!! I’m so happy to hear that you were able to visit the ocean…..that majesty!! 😀 !!!! You are so sweet to think of me and pray for me!! I just envisioned the tide with wishes floating on them going out further and further into that magical unknown place where wishes are gathered and granted….like a message in a bottle.

          I sort of did something really stupid, wasn’t paying attention and tripped and fell, twisted the ____ out of my ankle. So am sort of laid up at the moment. Very mad at myself. So much to do, really can’t take the time for this. Anyway, getting this sweet gift/thought/comment from you today….just made my whole day thank you so so very way much beloved friend!!! I am more than grateful that I’ve been graciously given the treasure of having you in my life….shining so bright ♥♥♥♥ !!! Huge healing hugs and so so much love to you!!!! xoxox

          • Oh no Christina… please baby that ankle – really important! I am so sorry — I know how hard it is to surrender to injury and pain. If it’s acute though – just know it will heal and it’s worth the caution now as to keep from becoming anything chronic. Yes – was so wonderful to see the sea yesterday – I will likely do a post later about my encounter. Excited to produce a post after so much time. I feel the same my dear soul sister~ healing hugs right back to you— Much Love and quick recovery! ~ xo RL

            • Robyn, you are just so sweet! 🙂 Thank you so much for your encouragement and well wishes. It is very very very hard to stay off of it and let it heal properly when there is so much to be done and kids of course! But, be assured I am resting it (mostly lol) and I think it will be okay. 🙂 More mad at myself than anything ;p I’m SO excited you got to visit the sea, I imagine it must be more than difficult to have it so close yet, some days, so very far. Will definitely be looking foward to seeing your post!!! 😀 ♥♥♥♥ !!! Lots and lots of hugs back-atcha!!!

  2. Your beautiful poem brought back wonderful memories for me when we first bought our home in Sedona, AZ. We grabbed some pillows and blankets and lay outside mesmerized by a shower of shooting stars – pure joy! Love your new Gravatar 🙂

      • You know, it took me so much by surprise I didn’t even think of wishing. But my life is so full of good things right now it would be hard to wish for anything else, and it happened before all the uproar in the world, so I wasn’t thinking globally. Maybe I can wish in retrospect???

        • For some weird reason, this ended up in spam 😦 I just found it!!! 😀 !!

          They do seem to happen when we least expect it!! How wonderful for you to be in a season of such good things!!! 😀 I hope we can wish in retrospect….since they do come so very quickly and unanticipated!!!
