I Shot An Arrow


I shot an arrow into the air,
It fell to earth, I knew not where;
For, so swiftly it flew, the sight
Could not follow it in its flight.

I breathed a song into the air,
It fell to earth, I knew not where;
For who has sight so keen and strong,
That it can follow the flight of song?

Long, long afterward, in an oak
I found the arrow, still unbroke;
And the song, from beginning to end,
I found again in the heart of a friend.”


~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow


Elfje:         (Cinquain)



smells good

stimulates the imagination

pleasures for all senses



Lune:    5 / 3 / 5


seeing you again

dreams relived

old feelings renewed



trying to find something positive to write about
living in a world full of anger and doubt
unreasonable fears motivate the crazy
for many it is a case of just being lazy

smile, assume a posture of gratitude
shoulders back, chin up, display a good mood
being thankful is the beginning of every good day
what can you really do about it anyway

know that there is a positive side to every lesson
accept, only as long as you live is it your possession
set your goal on making this world a better place
share the favor of a beneficent God’s grace

could you be something positive to write about
you can be if you just do your best, day in and day out
