Painting In The Sky

by

Kim Laforest

As the sun pulled up its blanket, preparing to tuck the world in for a rest, I was overwhelmed by feeling so incredibly blessed.

I decided to sit out longer enjoying the silence within myself, sorting the thoughts that don't matter and leaving them to rest on a shelf.

The lights turned on in the sky as the cool breeze blew on my face, I looked up and realized thats where my spirit will go when I finally leave this place.

I knew right there as I witnessed this painting in the sky, there is so much of this universe than just you or I.

We witness everyday beauty, and we think that it's only here, but the beauty extends beyond us to the universal atmosphere.

As humans we get lost it our own egos believing we developed it all, but in the grand scheme of things our voices are relatively small.

Something out there a much greater force has created this spectacular view, to show you are grateful for its gifts, live your life with a heart that is true.

This evening reminds me of what I lose sight of but do already know, to love well, appreciate all that god has given, until its time for my spirit to go.


And...I Welcome My Soul To The Sun

by

Kim Laforest

As I stumble down this jagged path of life
I sometimes feel as helpless as a child
While I search for a torch to lighten the load
I return to a place down by the shore

And I...
Welcome my soul to the sun
I open my arms and my heart
To heal the wounds of life inside
To have a purpose, to enjoy my life

I calm myself in this place
Where the water is waving me to come in
As it cleanses its body of debris on the shore
I release my tears until there are no more

And I...
Welcome my soul to the sun
I open my arms and my heart
To heal the wounds of life inside
To have a purpose, to enjoy my life

As the sun opens it's window, the eagle soars below
He whispers to the world
Lift up your heads to embrace the truth
Of that of which you already know

To...
Welcome your soul to the sun
Open your arms and your heart
To heal the wounds of life inside
To have a purpose , to enjoy your life
And then smile!
