The Color of the Sunset

I stand in the sand, soft and moist,

Feeling the breeze in my hair.

Then coral and blue in the sky above

Flash these words to me:


You don’t have to do to feel the joy.

You don’t have to fear you aren’t good enough.

You don’t have to smile to cover the pain.

You only need to be.


You don’t have to do the mothering right.

You don’t have to be so good.

You don’t have to please everyone in sight.

You only need to be.


You don’t have to do to enjoy me.

You don’t have to get it right.

Don’t force a smile; just relax for a while.

You only need to be.


You don’t have to do;

It’s waiting for you.

Look past it all

And enjoy me!

 She carefully found her steppingstones buried under the sparkling water.

Peering closely she saw letters delicately carved in each gray rock:






     Personal Power


The words glistened as the letters cut into the stones,

Revealing a glittering white granite underneath the smoky exterior.

Treasures!  She had found the treasures.

Carefully she stepped into the clear, cold water.

The stones were solid and she put her full weight on them.

Sparkling blue water covered her ankles.

The sun peeked through the tall green trees.

Light glistened all around.

In the pristine silence she heard a whisper,

“This is Heaven.”

Her joy was full.

Dare to laugh, smile, and be happy.
Take a trip,
Face your fears.
Swim with the dolphins.
Jump off a cliff.
Ride in a red convertible.
Drink kava-kava with friends.
Eat sushi and ice cream.
Laugh with a friend.
Stroll through the village.
Wear a fragrant lei.
Take a drive in the country.
See the Valley of the Kings.
Enter the Peace Garden.
Walk a labyrinth.
Talk to a parrot.
Sit in community and in joy.
Bring Heaven to Earth!
