I can see clearly now Day 6


I Can See Clearly Now

I CAN see clearly now!


I have been looking at the world 

the wrong way round.

Death isn't a full stop;

 An annihilation or

     A crash into oblivion.

   It's part of life's rich tapestry;

      A stepping stone,

      A celebration,

         The promise of Spring.

         And the melting of Jack Frost's callous icicles,

            That have held my life

               in suspended animation

Sometimes words just flow through me but it's not until a second, third and sometimes fourth reading that they really hit me.  And this one, if you pardon the pun, was a real 'eye opener', a real 'ah-ha' moment, (especially since I have an eye problem. Words are truly healing, no doubt about it.  But when we get into the zone, allowing inspiration to flow effortlessly through, magic happens and that truly is the icing on the cake. Sometimes its part of the healing process. Today I learned, through this piece of writing, that we can all get in our own way, inhibiting the healing process.


  1. That's beautiful, Gillian. Here is mine for the day.

    Great beauty brings great clarity.
    It brings stillness, harmony and joy.
    Thanks be!

    1. Daphne This is absolutely beautiful, and a piece that I could do further meditation, contemplation on. Just the flow of your words brings me to a point of stillness and through that wonderment in the beauty that surrounds us all, and yet we so often blind to. You were obviously 'in the zone' when you wrote it Gillianxx!

  2. I loved both your and Daphne's pieces today! Such imagery and succinctness! Thank you for the eye-opening clarity, ladies. Trying to just stay in the moment and enjoying the present of my husband's phoenix-like rising :) Although as ever the power of his energy and vision is truly both awesome & daunting.

  3. Thank you both for your feedback. Its always good to have.
