Living Like Sea Glass

Living Like Sea Glass
by Rachel Hoyt

image by Rachel Hoyt

Right now I live between the waves
Of hope and desperation,
Biding my time amongst the grime;
Dreaming of destination.

My edges are still a bit rough,
Some surfaces unpolished.
I feel as if I've had enough,
Like hope's all but abolished.

But, sometimes, in between the waves,
I catch a glimpse of light -
A sign that timing is divine;
Of nature's perfect sight.

I know someday a storm will come
To push me to the surface
And I'll shine underneath the sun
With perfectly imperfect purpose.

Mind Full vs Mindful

Mind Full vs Mindful
by Rachel Hoyt

Mind Full:
Push-pull.
Want. Need.
Must feed.
Warp speed!

Mindful:
Be cool.
Watch. See.
Love free.
Just be.

A Rhyming Prayer for Easter

I feel it is time to change the focus of Rhyme Me a Smile. While I may highlight news articles as inspiration occasionally, my poetry has become an integral part of my spiritual journey and I feel called to begin sharing those thoughts here. The poem below was inspired by my discovery of New Thought (a spiritual belief system) and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights to which its adherents subscribe.

Make Me a Twinkling Star
by Rachel Hoyt

I wish upon the stars tonight.
I pray I may,
I hope I might,
Give the world
All love and light,
Help push darkness
Out of sight -
Kill with kindness,
Accept fright,
Cherish oneness,
Sparkle bright.

I wish to spread your Divine light,
To twinkle for you day and night.
