Stripping away the rose colored glasses of denial concerning my reality. Getting in touch with truth. Reaching out to others in empathy concerning their reality and their walk to truth.

Living Fragile (a repost)

Sometimes when life seems so fragile
A beginning feeling of peace arrives
From a source within and without
We bow our head
Acknowledge kindness
Receive the gift that helps us heal

We wrap the peace around our bodies
Longing for immediate relief
And find instead temporary solace
We bend our knees
Capture completeness
And let it work through all our days

Discover being fragile is not a curse
For peace will come and peace will go
From everything we are to what we will become
We praise the Creator
As everlasting love
Relieves our fear of living fragile


  1. Hi Dixie,
    Wonderfully articulated. And, you know I endeavour to acknowledge kindness.
    And thus, I want to let you know, that I acknowledged your kindness to me and your ray of sunshine, two postings ago.
    Have a peaceful and positive weekend. I am on the verge of leaving.
    In kindness, Gary :)

  2. Thanks Gary.
    I did see your post but had an emergency and failed to return. So now I take the time and thank you for the 'Sunshine Award'. It is very kind of you considering all of the blogs you're in touch with.

  3. Dixie, your poem is exceptional. Life possesses an imminent fragility that escapes most everyone...until they experience firsthand just how easily broken their lives can become. And quickly, too. The gentleness, the immeasurable truth you offer with this poem, is inspiring. Life is to be treasured, for it is a great gift.

    I wanted to tell you how much I enjoy your sidebar. My eyes search there every time I visit you. The rose - how wonderful that it returned to you!:)
