The Earth Whispers

–About Life, Love And Living

The morning mist filters the sunlight and seems to soften the world around us.  It is like the earth whispers to the world.  The birds are haunting in their song because you hear them, but you can’t see them; they are hidden in the mist.  The morning is muted; the sounds and the colors are softer as if you are looking through a veil.

The morning always reminds us that we have work to do and animals to feed.  Though, for this moment, I will stand here and feel the world at rest, hesitating before the sun burns through the morning mist.

I will feel this time of peace and serenity and embrace it with my heart and soul for this moment will never be here again.   It exists only now as a gift to be treasured and remembered.  I take a deep breath and step into the day, a day like no other I have known.

Awaken the possibilities … then unleash them. After 55 years of successful retail management, I have returned to my passion of writing. I write Poetry, Storytelling, and Short Stories. As a child, I grew up on front porch storytelling. I would sit and listen to my Dad and his brothers tell these great stories that were captivating, and I always wanted to hear more. I wanted to experience the things they talked about. I started writing at a young age and reading everything I could get my hands on. At twelve years old I started a storytelling group and several of my friends became writers or poets. At 16 I hopped box cars and worked the tobacco fields, orange groves, picked cotton, and spent many nights around a campfire listing to life stories. Someone once asked me why I wrote. It consumes an amazing amount of time and I assure you it is not going to make me rich. I write so that my children can touch and feel my words telling of the ones that came before us and the stories they told me. These are the chronicles of our family and even though they come from my childhood memories and are deeply rooted in a child’s remembrance at least they may feel what it was like in the time before them and cherish the things the elders left behind. I am a Columnist & Featured Contributor, BIZCATALYST360 and I have The Writers Café, a group on LinkedIn that features Poets, Writers, Artists, Photographers, and Musicians . On Facebook I have two groups and one page; Dirt Road Storytelling, From Abandoned To Rescue Dogs And Cats, and About Life, Love And Living. As writers, it is true that we honestly do not know what we hold within us until we unleash it. When our words inspire others only then will inspiration return to the writer. I will spend my twilight years in search of the next story, the next poem, and the next image. I will take the time to enjoy my Wife, our Dogs, and Cats, and our amazing new home and I will always find the time to walk down a dirt road I truly hope is that I never have to read another book on Leadership, be on a conference call or see another plan o gram as these were the tool for what I did in life and not about who I am.

  1. The enchantment of Nature really knows how to amaze us, surprise us, graft in us the sense of the marvelous. How many times do we happen to be truly speechless in front of certain natural landscapes, but also motionless, astonished, in front of a starry sky or a sunset that lights up the sea, in a forest full of trees that seem to touch the sky.
    But I want to add that beauty is also the gift we make of ourselves to others, the one that encloses our interiority, strong in its values, consistency, attention to the other.

  2. Beautiful. My favorite time of day is the morning when I feed and walk my dog, Layla, then head out on a run around the lake. Sacred time. I appreciate your writing so very much! Thank you for sharing this, my friend!! Such a valuable reminder that every single day we wake up and step into the morning–that this day is a new one, a fresh moment not ever to be lived again…

    • Thank you Lynn. Being that we live in the country now. I catch the sunrise and sunset every day. It truly makes you feel different
