Haiku My Heart - Want

DSC039561

What do I want ? I

Want breath, nourishment, shelter,

love, sunshine, kindness…

I want purpose, art,

You, your arms, laughter. In truth,

I want for nothing.

(This haiku and art journal page were inspired by my friend Elena, who asks some very fine questions.)

I am so grateful to be able to say that in this moment, I want for nothing.

I have everything I need to survive, to thrive, to live this precious life fully.

How amazing is that ?

Counting those blessings today…

Every day…

***********************

Off to an Artsy Friends sleepover tonight.

Maybe some art, definitely some dominos and margaritas !

Back home late tomorrow to batten down the hatches with my Love and our furry kids.

Go easy, Miss Irene…

Light and Love for your weekend, Beautiful Ones.

Beautiful... I hope Irene does go easy on you. Living on the gulf coast of Florida, I've been through several hurricanes. They are no fun... Stay safe Luv!

Wanting what you want, you will want for nothing!

I love your art work Kim. I am a firm believer in the power of gratitude. Realizing that you want for nothing and being grateful for all that you have is not just a gesture, it is a mindset that puts you on a different path. I see what you are doing and the energy that it brings into your life. Thank you for showing the way.
Peace and Light,
Noelle
