Blind Man’s Braille Part 3

To: RB

A kiss

Is eternal

There is a whole lot more going on

Than just skin to skin touching

A kiss is:

2 souls discovering through:

Touching

Caressing

Reading each other’s secret language

As the blind read braille

 

With your fingertips read my story

Read what’s encoded upon my flesh

As you read me I come alive

As I read your braille

I learn that like me: We’ve both so much survived

Your cells all fashioned perfectly

To make an amazing man

 

I read you’re afraid

You read I am scared

I read you’re insecure

You read I am far from pure

I read that you worry if you’re good enough

You read that I accept you with all of your flaws

I read that you lack love

You read that I am gentle as a dove

I read you’re scared of the serpent

You read I am only as wise as one

I read you fear dying alone

You read, come here welcome home…..

Llegaste Tu

El deseo entr贸 en mi ser como un atardecer

驴D贸nde est谩?

驴D贸nde est谩?

Esa soledad que intent贸 matarme

All铆, all铆, desapareci贸

Cuando llegaste, mi amor

Cuando viniste con esa sonrisa

Viniste y tocaste mi coraz贸n, despertandolo, descongelandolo a cabo

Y yo no puedo evitarlo

Es una lucha que sigo perdiendo

Entonces has venido y con una sola mirada

Mi coraz贸n est谩 en un rugido hasta

Atrapado lejos como en un trance

Llegaste … por fin llegaste!

deseo2

Desire came into my being like a sunset

Where is it?

Where is it?

That loneliness that tried to kill me

There, there, it vanished

When you came, my love

When聽you came with that smile

You came and you touched my heart; awakening, thawing it out

And I can not help myself

It’s a fight that I keep losing

Then you came and 聽with one glance

My heart’s in an up roar

Caught away as in a trance

You came … you finally came you!

ON THE UPSIDE OF LIFE…

Happy Sunday everyone! I was in a bit of a pensive mood so I decided to look up encouraging words to brighten your day. In this season of political slandering there is so much negativity trashing the air waves.I hope to help clean up the air waves :), if only in some small way, by posting something positive on my blog today. Look up people, it’s not as bad as they are making it seem. Thanks for stopping in and I always say my followers are聽AWESOME!!!!

Unlock Treasure

My 3 girls attend dance聽lessons at an academy. They have teachers they learn a lot from and other teachers they don’t learn much from. Do you want to know what is the difference? I will be more than glad to tell you! The teachers my kids consider good and they can’t wait to see week after week are teachers who impart to them in a noble spirit; they are patient with the students and supportive. When they correct the students they don’t tear them down with harsh destructive criticism; they use constructive criticism to build up the student聽 thusly, the student grows. The other teachers are the complete opposite and they wear down the kid’s morale. Oh I’ve heard it from other grown ups that at times harsh critical words can aid the student in toughening her up and giving her a back bone. I disagree. ” No one has yet to fully realize the wealth of sympathy, kindness and generosity hidden in the soul of a child. The effort of true education should be to unlock the treasure.” –Emma Goldman聽This quote shows me that in order to bring out the best in our children we need to value them and nurture them , it doesn’t work any other way.
