#Haiku Prompt Challenge 36 – Field, Beacon

RonovanWrites Weekly Haiku Prompt Challenge #36 – Field, Beacon

 

Light force

 

Field of infinite

possibilities, out there

Beacon from within.

This haiku came to me almost immediately as I look at the two word prompts (mhmm…I wonder why); and as I write this post, this song kept nudging at me.  So here is the music video of an amazing singer with an incredible voice, who has lived what seems to be a rather tumultous life, with her 2001 award-winning song ‘Shine’.

Wow, what a lot of adjectives 🙂  Enjoy!

In creativity…love.

For as long as I have known her, she has been imaginative, she has creative flair and a way of about her which exudes confidence, a knowing beyond her age, and a discerning nature.

Transformed

candle

In the embrace of words
I belong
Valued, understood
 
In the voice of acceptance
I relate
Assured, respected
 
In the vision of beauty
I am seen
Honoured, transformed

Be gentle with yourself

Today has been one of those days, where I have demanded lots from myself, produced little and judged myself a little harshly.  This is a reminder to self, and for those who do the same at one time or another.

 

Doing the best

Not apologising for being me

I prefer to be true to myself, even at the hazard of incurring the ridicule of others,
rather than to be false, and to incur my own abhorrence.

Frederick Douglass

 

How great it is to LOVE YOURSELF

…to no longer be afraid to show the world who you really are,

…to own up to all your strengths and your faults,

…to not pretend to be someone else to please or placate another…

…to STOP APOLOGIZING FOR BEING YOU.

 

That’s the message of this empowering song.  Enjoy!
