Sometimes we just don’t hear them,
those little wake-up calls,
our ears are full of cotton wool,
until we take the fall.
We wonder why we stumble,
there was nothing in the way,
our eyes don’t see the rubble,
that we look at every day.
Our voices become loud and brash,
to compete with all the noise,
they lose the art of gentle tones,
when the world seems cold and harsh.
Yet sometimes when we least expect,
we notice all these signs,
that tell us to take stock right now,
lest tomorrow be not kind.
There’s time to change,
to move aside, to take another path,
to listen to the Universe
when it speaks within your heart.
So find your point of happiness
and hold it close to you,
for life is short and fleeting,
so enjoy what what you do.
It may be big, it may be small,
the thing that makes you smile,
what matters is, that in that moment,
you are content and satisfied.

If you would like to participate with your own Emotography post, and I would be very happy if you wanted to, check out my post EPE Invitation where I explain what it all means, and tell you how.
For this challenge I thought I’d try something different.
I do have many lovely shots of the sun, but finally decided on a photo that shows how the Sun can make you feel: Contented.
This is our cat RaRa (named after the Sun God when we thought She was a He).
I’m sitting under green cool trees,
with D1 by my side,
occasionally D2 will come out to us,
but she mostly stays inside.
We sit in shade and read our books,
the breeze gently gliding by,
eating peanut butter sandwiches,
and making contented sighs.
The dappled shade, warm summer air,
cats sleeping on the grass,
to spend time with my daughters,
is all that I would ask.
To sit in the corner
with the sun and a book
luxury in small moments
contentment she sings
