Be a Sunflower

Seeking better days,

With some sunshine in life? 

Looking for the light?

Are you standing in the sun

Or sitting in the shadows?

If you want light to come into your life, you need to stand where it is shining.” —Guy Finley

Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see a shadow.” —Helen Keller

Prime Time

Pooh Bear Drawing, Shadorma Poem

Sometimes

You need to just sit

Pondering

Not doing

Waiting for inspiration

To bring something

Shadorma

“Ah yes, doing nothing often leads to the very best of something” —Pooh

(I was so inspired while watching the movie “Christopher Robin” recently! I loved the story and found myself pausing the DVD many times to write down various quotes of things that Pooh said. One such quote inspired this poem 😊)
