THOUGHTS


Day and night they travel onward
Hour by hour as on parade ...
Some thoughts travel on to action
Some at home forever stayed ...
Some are languid passing onward
Leaving not a joy or pain ...
Transient as the smiles that greet us
Never to return again.

Thoughts can mar our souls
Forever blighting beauty from within ...
Sealing there our hearts forever
As in bondage so grim ...
Others soar to heights of glory
Wielding power that bringeth fame ...
Sweet the thoughts with flower's laden scented
As perfume they came ...
As ye think therefore ye liveth
Soar thou high above the rife ...
Feed thy soul with living beauty
For as ye think ye fashion life.

  1. Your heart and words in bloom they be
    And at this hour so gifted to me
    Your thoughts so clear and so profound
    In your poem much wisdom to be found!

    So very well done Dear Margie.

  2. Beautiful, we don't often stop and think, or even realize how much power our thoughts have in creating our lives.....a shift in thought makes for a shift in attitude which can lead us onto the path of sweet happiness.
    Have a wonderful day......:-) Hugs

  5. oh so true margie and so well put...


    when I hear anyone (particularly my family) going on about slights, hurts, injustices, etc. I tell them to get over it and move on because I believe bad thoughts are self-destructive and you have to find the positive, not dwell on the negative because the only one you ultimately hurt is yourself.

    oh margie, thank you for the comments on my pictures - I'm not a real photographer (like I'm not a real poet). I have a cheap little digital camera bought because I liked the colour (it's red) and bought primarly to take pics of my grandchildren - when I see them - because they live two thousand miles away from me

    lotsa luv ann xoxoxox

  6. Our thoughts are our own and they may not be spoken out loud or shared but they are known to others by how we act.

    A beautiful expression of the power of thoughts.

  8. So very beautiful! Some people cannot say in prose what you so easily express in your poetry! :)

  9. MARIE-
    I love this poem as it speaks to our thoughts and the many possibilities/opportunities they provide. Thoughts are just that, thoughts and no one knows what we are thinking until we act on a thought - thoughts hurt or help no one, they are, as your poem so beautifully says, meaningful in their action.

    Love Gail'
    peace....

  11. just lovely, Margie... those raging thoughts that sweep through like wildfire every single day, and even through some nights... we can grab hold of any one of them and soar to our highest of heights or dive to our lowest of lows... regardless of any one of them we may visit with for awhile, they are transient like the wind... blowing in and then blowing back out again...

  12. Hi Margie:)

    Greetings:)

    Lovely , practical and useful poem to think, digest and implement.

    Your last line hit the nail on the head---FOR AS YE THINK YE FASHION LIFE.

    If we nurture good thoughts, productive thoughts, useful thoughts, positive thoughts , we will find ourselves moving forward with confidence and courage towards self fulfillment, achievement and success. On the other hand, if our thoughts our negative, dwell on past failures, fixed upon our inadequacies then we are surely going to plunge into despair,darkness, destruction and doom.

    Beautiful, colorful flowers made me feel very happy.

    Have a nice day Margie:)

    Hi Bernie
    How right you are when you say that a shift in thoughts can lead to a change in attitude.
    I know that when my thoughts are gloomy I am gloomy too.
    Then when I think about something of a happy nature I feel joy!
    There are so many wonderful & beautiful things in life to focus our thoughts on, so why not do it?

    As always, thanks very much for your kind words!

    Wishing you a day of joy...HUGS!

    Hello Ann
    Keep on telling those people to get over it and move on as you are doing them a big service!

    I so agree with you about not dwelling in nagative thoughts as the only one you ultimately hurt is yourself.

    Oh, I so disagree about you not being a real photographer or real poet as you are very much "real" in both!
    Love your poems and now I love your photos!
    And keep taking pictures of your sweet little grandchildren & sharing them.
    It's hard being so far away from them, huh?

    Thanks very much for your kind words!
