I have only recently come across Ally’s blog. I hope that you love her poems of positivity and beauty as much as I do!
― Thich Nhat Hanh, Peace Is Every Step: The Path of Mindfulness in Everyday Life
I feel the soft rain
reviving a desolate wilderness,
infusing life into scattered hope.
Too long have I sojourned
on a parched wasteland,
A sink hole of unconsciousness.
Bitterness spreading across the barrenness.
I’m gulping down living waters
Saturating my shriveled
awareness with compassion.
Counting my many blessings.
Drenching myself in praise!
A miraculous flow of appreciation floods
into the reservoir of longing.
Hope springs to life
breaking forth into tributaries,
surging over dry land,
washing away gloom
becoming a torrent
till it finds a massive ocean
