Unique Times

Where I share my jewels of wisdom of life

Pushed into cracks,
busting at the seams,
everything takes precedence
over my dreams.

Time to prioritize,
dig out,
throw out,
Get rid of what doesn’t fit.

Find new roots,
face the sun,
Run, don’t walk from
Monsters of the night, clawing at
your skin.

Turn up the music,
turn off the T.V.
Put your hands in the dirt,
pop seeds in the soil.

It’s time to germinate,
What you reap, you sow.
Soon your garden will be
bursting color
and nourishment.

and
you’ll be harvesting your gifts from the earth.

Weed your friendships
like you do your soil
and life will be a bouquet of plenty
each and every day.

I had some fun moments with my daughter who’s getting married in Sept, this weekend. She called and invited me to the street fair and I was elated. I dropped everything and we had some lovely girl and wedding planning time. Part of me was thinking “I just can’t” but I just can’t miss these times! We are both knee deep with so much on our plate; me with the remodel and both of us with the wedding but we turned it into a power session of planning and getting a plan of action too. Hunter always loves visiting her house in hopes of a food score and a hug.

Have a blessed week!

💖

Cindy

Awwwww Cindy, I simply love your heartfelt poem. If you aren’t careful, overwhelm can easily take over and I know you ain’t having that if you can help it girlfriend. Such lovely moments you and your daughter shared this weekend. I think you both needed that and what a beautiful and magical moment that you couldn’t let pass by.

Just hang in there girlfriend, because these arduous projects will be over soon and then you will be on to another hair-raising project. I know you just can’t be still, and must have another feat to accomplish! LOL 😜😲😍 Enjoy the rest of your amazing day and continue being the amazing, loving, and gracious person that you are dawwwwlinkkkkk. Hugs and smooches! 🥰💖😘💋🤩💐😎

Hi Cindy, this is a great poem. Planning for a wedding with your daughter sounds like a lot of fun. I have sons so I’ll never be the mother of the bride.

Two days before my youngest son’s wedding, my now daughter-in-law took her mom and I out for dinner and pedi-manis. Since they lived together, the night before the wedding, my son stayed at my apartment with me. We have to enjoy those times when we get the chance. Now they live out of state. Lovely poem, Cindy.

I’m a little concerned with those night monsters you have clawing at you. You should turn them into a children’s book. You’d make a fortune. 🙂

Cindy!
Dear top poet of mine !
This poem here had six stanzas to me and I read it three times!

The first stanza starts with this general overview of the topic and very real human tendency to live and lose touch with dreams and push things down while we truck on:

Stanza one: “Pushed into cracks,
busting at the seams,
everything takes precedence
over my dreams.”

Stanza two then has the Cindy G call to action:

“Time to prioritize,
dig out,
throw out,
Get rid of what doesn’t fit.”

The third stanza keeps us on topic but adds in powerful sensory image and gets deep into the seriousness of how some need to RUN from the rut and funk (or unhelpful behaviors)

“Find new roots,
face the sun,
Run, don’t walk from
Monsters of the night, clawing at
your skin”

The fourth stanza syncs with stanza two (and the form of this poem now has this balance alternating – which I assume your structured self just did naturally rate than planned such alternating) because here you go back to offering practical advice:

“Turn up the music,
turn off the T.V.
Put your hands in the dirt,
pop seeds in the soil”

Stanza five was a peak here – this Motivational “aside” ad you encourage the reader and cheer them on to rise up and get moving

“It’s time to germinate,
What you reap, you sow.
Soon your garden will be
bursting color
and nourishment.

and
you’ll be harvesting your gifts from the earth.”

then!
You close out this prom with a sixth stanza that doesn’t repeat content (because your points were made)
Instead – this closing stanza adds a new flavor or element to the topic of living in a way to not smother dreams and using garden metaphor to reach us:

“Weed your friendships
like you do your soil
and life will be a bouquet of plenty
each and every day.”

The last stanza is like a Benediction – sending us in our way with hope!
-//

Wonderful poem Cindy!!

Thanks for the offer! Pretty much over now – but between (and your thousands of readers!) just saw the ugliness of a few Christians lately – and duh! I forgot how harsh and mean some Christians can be –
Now of course many Christians are loving and wise and just so wonderful – but my goodness are there some lame ones
– anyhow / we are all not perfect and all fall short but I pray for the ones that have that harshness –
And lab to “weed my garden” and stay the heck away

I think of that almost everyday because when walking the dog – we pass our neighbor’s house – he got sick in august of last year – was diagnosed with cancer in November and died in January
So crazy how fast it was
Anyhow / I see his trees and gardens (tow rose of Sharon plants I gave him)
And it is a reminder to the vapor of life we have here
A reminder to lighten up and love with love and more understanding (drawing boundaries of course and all that good stuff you put in your recent poem that I loved!)
💛🦋👐

You know I’m not good with reading or interpreting poetry, but this one reminds me of a great saying that we should all live by: “Judge your day not by the harvest you’ve reaped, but by the seeds you’ve sown.”

At the end of the day (or at the beginning, depending on how you want to look at this phrase), we need to do our sowing before anything will come to bloom. We can’t just wait on the birds and bees to do it for us. Loved this positive poem. Thanks for sharing, Cindy!
