Standing Strong
by Linda L. Dowd

When skies are gray and clouds block out the sun,
I know beyond the clouds the sky is blue.
With hopefulness in heart, each dayís begun.

From my thoughts, new realities are spun.
I live my life with honesty and grace.
I know beyond the clouds the sky is blue.

My mirror shows a smiling, friendly face.
With thankfulness, I start each brand new day.
I live my life with honesty and grace.

I know Godís angels guide me on my way.
There is no mountain top that I can't climb.
With thankfulness, I start each brand new day.

I live each day not wasting precious time.
I'm standing strong. ~ Try never to be weak.
There is no mountain top that I canít climb.

Each word is given care before I speak.
When skies are gray and clouds block out the sun.
I'm standing strong. ~ Try never to be weak.
When skies are gray and clouds block out the sun.

Naked One ~

Good evening, M! I'm pleased that you found my thoughts "calming".

During the hubbub of the day's activities, I too, find it comforting to find a port in the storm.

Hi, Meghan! I appreciate your enthusiastic response to that gorgeous old painting (wish I knew who had painted it!) and my poem.

Have a pleasant evening!

Peaceseaker ~

That was kind of you to say! Thank you! Some of the poetic forms that I have been trying my hand at, as of late, can certainly try my patience! lol I'm finding them rather challenging! ~ but worth the effort. They are pulling more 'schtuff' out of me as a poet. ~ Adding more dimensions to my writing.

I appreciate your comments! Thank you!

Dearest Angelo Terrestre, I feel permeated by a very special tune elicited by masterful chords.

Yes, your words are music to my ears. Most beautifully done!

Love,

You don't need a sword of truth and defiant banner, Linda.

There is heroism in every small deed, every tear kissed from a lover's eye, every word of kindness shared with a dejected friend.

Sometimes our love for others lets us be strong, for them, and often the hardest thing we can do is be strong for ourselves.

AT sunshine,  you are one of those souls who move under the skin because their beauty shines so bright. What you say to me is what I can say to you, dear heart!

As I said in your birthday post "No Linda, no Pip Party!".

Enjoyed to read this once again.

And THANK YOU!

Love and hugs.

A lovely thing for you to say, Dear Lovely One!

I found this a tricky form to write. It was like following a very complicated recipe!!!

Bluesy One ~

Lori, I am humbled by your generous words. To be honest with you, I would be hard-pressed not to have improved as a writer over the past 7 years of reading the poems of some of pip's finest poets ~ and you are most definitely among the best!

Thank you!

Linda
