They all were aiming the same way
Though wild they’re organized.
They chattered some. What did they say?
I’d likely be surprised.
Underneath I watched the sky.
Two droppings were well placed.
Some of them thought they should fly.
One dropping missed my face.

With roaring emotions fresh troubles may start.
Soaring of insight warms a cold heart.
Decide how this moment’s most fittingly spent.
The iron of anger with kindness is bent.
Doors opened outward bring shivers and cold,
But sunlight, bright sunlight, though cloudy stays bold.

Filled to overflowing;
Still not full enough -
Stones protrude. With water
Walk away what’s rough.
Linked to K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge with the theme of 2019 and to Trent P. McDonald’s The Weekly Smile. I’m posting a couple of photos from this past year that made me smile. Happy New Year tomorrow night.
The poem is based on the difference between being filled and being full as described by David Pawson.
Happiness will help one glow.
Happiness may not come though
One does what one thinks one should do
As colors blend with others new
Cycling through the ever same
Rebuked, reformed then round again.
Winter’s whiteness stays a while
Awaiting one more happy smile.

It is also linked to Trent P. McDonald’s The Weekly Smile. This past week the answers to a couple of questions on Quora suddenly made sense to me. There is nothing like understanding something (finally) to make me smile.
