Change can come on tiptoe
love is where it starts
It resides often hides
deep within our hearts

Just as pebbles make a mountain
raindrops make a sea
one day at a time
is how it will always be

Ordinary miracles
happen all around
by giving and receiving
comes belonging and believing

Every sun that rises
never rose before
each new day leads the way
through a different door

We can all be quiet heroes
living quiet days
walking through the world
changing it in quiet ways

Ordinary miracles
like candles in the dark
each and every one of us
lights a unique spark

The walls can tumble
as mountains we will move
winds and tide can turn
strength of love is proof

One for every star
lightning bolt or thunder
endless possibilities
bringing joy and sense of wonder

Hope can spring eternally
as a miracle multiplies
give it and it grows
right before our eyes

Rainbow arcs across the sky
as sun radiates with pleasure
release of rain equals pain
love knows no other measure...



 Live in my heart and pay no rent...

Oh, my ! RainbowGirl~

Your muses worked you overtime on this one.
Oh, my !

'Every sun that rises
never rose before
each new day leads the way
through a different door'

Each and every verse ... sheer beauty.
You've captured perfection.
It is the best of the best.

Bravo!  When I read this, I hear a soothing voice whispering the words to me.  Poems that calm me like this come just rarely as sleep to me.

Loved these lines....

Rainbow arcs across the sky
as sun radiates with pleasure
release of rain equals pain
love knows no other measure...


Great Job

Cindy,
Each verse is a jewel, a poem unto itself, a universal truth. It makes me wonder what inspires one to write so beautiful a verse at any given moment. This just seems to pour so readily from your heart.
Wonderful, Cindy
