#PoeticTuesday – 70

Love To The World

Christmas season has begun
Opens my heart more
Makes me feel the love around
Stronger than before

What I feel now is nothing new
It has been here all time
But only when we open up
The light can fully shine

It’s not the light in others that
We feel stronger these days
It is our own love we recall
That’s been in us always

Let’s let it shine, let’s let it warm
Let’s give this world a lift
Let’s have an open ear and door
An open hand to give.

Maybe we can’t change this world
But perhaps we can
Let’s join in, it’s worth the try
We can only win

In Love and Light

The purpose of my blog is to inspire and shine a light on the beauty and power of the wonderful being inside your body. You came into this world to share what only you can give. Remember who you really are, conquer the world the way you always wanted to, and become the blessing to us all that you were meant to be.


Love, Peace, Poetry, Poetry Day


The idea of changing the world starts with our own heart, our own actions. This time of year reminds me just how much the simplest of gestures has an impact that is a ripple effect. Kindness and compassion, empathy and patience. These are the gifts our hearts to be shared always!

Right, the darker the night, the more we appreciate each tiny spark. It gives hope and motivates to keep going. So, every act of kindness is valued even more the more difficult the situation is for someone. Thank you for adding your thoughts, Maria 💖

Thank you, Gail! Every little act of kindness makes this world a little brighter. If it is to only let a car pass or to keep a door open for someone. It brings peace and love into this world and that is contagious 💖

Sadly, I’m seeing less and less of it. My husband ALWAYS opens the car door for me and people notice because they usually say something. Funny story, though. Sooo, I went on a girl’s day trip of shopping, lunch, and travel. Every time we arrived somewhere I found myself waiting for her to open my car door. Thankfully, I remembered I needed to do it before she mentioned it. 🤣🤣🤣 Yeah, I know. I’m spoiled. 💕

Well done Erika. Love the very last line “We can only win” which is so true.

By expressing ourselves about pursuing tolerance and love for each other, and offering a helping hand wherever we can, we can only win. We may never see the world we dream about, but getting just a little closer to it is a win. 🙂

You said that well, Colin. What we give always leaves something for ourselves. We can only give love, and all that goes along with love if we feel this love in us before. So, we do ourselves a big favor if we give love to this world. As you said, every little step helps 😊
