I believe that this speaks about more than our sense of hearing; Although, I have found that to be true also.  I believe that in the quietness (or silence) one can hear what the mind is speaking.  Is your voice one of self-hatred or pessimism? If so, think past that. Within you lies a truly amazing soul on a fabulous journey.  You may not feel like it now, but it is true. A storm cannot last forever, nor will any negative thoughts or feelings you may be experiencing. At least, I feel this to be accurate of my life. My grandma used to tell me, "This too shall pass" and I believe it to be so with every fiber of my body. However, there have been those times in my life where I had that voice inside telling me otherwise.  It is today that I begin to hear with my heart what truly is, versus hearing with my mind.

Silence the mind?

Silence the Mind
By: Annette Thomas

Silencing the mind,
Will allow your soul
To speak and guide
You to the correct path.

For it is in the depth of
Your soul that you will
Not only find answers
But also comfort.

It now.
Silence the mind.

Beautiful Smile?

The Most Beautiful Smile
by Annette Thomas

Yours is the
Most beautiful smile
That I have ever seen.

It can brighten
Up a room with
Just a simple look.

It tempts even
The pessimist
To return a smile.

Yours is the
Most beautiful smile
That I have ever seen.

Is Silence Truly Silent?

Is Silence Truly Silent?
By: Annette Thomas

Who among us can hear silence?
Is silence really silence
if you can truly hear it?

I have yet to find that place,
for the sound of my mind
keeps on speaking…

Do you hear the silence?

If Only It Would Rain?

If Only It Would Rain
By: Annette Thomas

If only it would rain…

I would feel the droplets
on my face as all
negativity flowed
from my soul.

If only it would rain…

The heaviness of this
burden would be
lifted and my load
be lightened.

If only it would rain…

I would know the beauty
of a bright rainbow
as my sadness would
turn to joy.

If only it would rain…

Rise up?

Rise Up
By: Annette Thomas

Rise up from
that which has
knocked you down.

Rise up, despite
any lying.
any abuse.
any infidelity.
any addiction.

Rise up, despite
any unhappiness.
any incompatibility.
any lack of intimacy.
any falling out of love.

Rise up, despite
any hurt.
any pain.
any tears.
any regret.

Rise up, despite
any blame.
any shame.
any sadness.
any depression.

For it is
in the rising,
one ascends above
that which has
knocked you down.

Oh Caterpillar?

For you my friend...

Oh Caterpillar
By: Annette Thomas

Sometimes, I sit and think
about past events until
depression seeps in…

But today, I am reminded
that just when the caterpillar
thought, “I am incapable
of moving,” it became a

Thank you,
Oh caterpillar.

All is swell!

Today, I read the above quote and found it to be very inspiring. I don’t know who to quote as the source, but it reminds me to look for the good in a not-so-good situation. Almost four months ago, I left my job of 11 years. After searching for a job for a month, I thought of the not-so-good situation and took to self-reflection.  Shortly after, I joined a spiritual writer’s group that inspired me to do that which I love.  I have since found peace…and another job.  All is swell! Remember as I have, the storm never lasts forever and there is sunshine on the other side. - Annette Thomas

What I Love?

So today I typed “writing” in the search engine and what results did I get - images of quill pens, pictograms, typewriters, magnetic words, keyboards, and reading glasses on books.  Does anyone pick up a pen anymore and just write? I find the whole thought of writing thrilling, of course I am a writer.  Of all my writing though, I love my poetry the most. Hope you enjoy it.

What I Love
By: Annette Thomas

What I love about poetry
I love about you…

the newness of uncovering
that which lives deep inside.

discovering fresh thoughts in
which to find the words,
and the magic when
you express that.

and the happiness of sharing
that with anyone who will
listen to the rhythm that
rolls off your tongue.

Fairy Dust Dreams?

Ah the magic and wonder of starry-eyed lovers…

Fairy Dust Dreams
By: Annette Thomas

Once upon a
Fairy dust dream
Two starry-eyed lovers
Danced on moonbeams.

This in my head
I began to repeat
And how it did make
My heart skip a beat.

Lost in a dreamland
Yes indeed
Continue for this
You must read…

As vibrant as
Your lovely laugh
This I must
Say on my behalf

Fairy dust makes
Me think of you
But this you
Really have no clue.

It was this dream
Of starry-eyed lovers
That made me
Want to really discover

The magic and
Wonder that I feel
Is only for you
And that’s for real.
