Blue Feathers Falling at my Feet

Prompt on Gratitude

Blue Feathers Falling at my Feet

Eternal gratitude for the messengers all around

Oh, the blue feather
Fallen at my feet
Must be a sign
Of something
Communicating from another realm
Hawk screeches
Flying overhead

What does it mean?

Affixed on the story
Meaning of sorts
Dwelling never knowing
Winds gentle whispers
Clouds blanketing sun
Mother calls
Step gingerly in her presence
Spinning in thought
Sitting quietly…amused
Bursting into laughter
Tears welling
Painting the skies
Burning desires
Given birth
Oh, the blue feather
Fallen at my feet
Awakened my Spirit
Eternal gratitude It Is.

Much gratitude for Sahil Patel, for this prompt and Lifeline for housing the words.

Open to witnessing the many gifts we have personally received, or the gifts presented to us in the Canvas of life, we find acceptance in all the torment and chaos of our days, reminding us to remain in gratitude for all things leading to this point in time.

Whatever the circumstances in our lives, we have come to know this timeline as another fork in the road, maybe, or a life-changing decision to let everything go from our past.

I am reminded of this lesson through a small token from a blue jay and the magnificent words of another. Elyse Wright discusses our letting go in a timely fashion, whether it is a lesson of actually letting go or revisiting an idea of further understanding needed. Sure to trigger the thoughts.

When encountering misfortune or ill-intent of another, we choose to remain in sadness, burying our heads in the sand, as A. N. Tipton discusses in I wonder, or Bouncing Back in Jason Edmunds piece Bouncing Along. We have choices.

Choosing gratitude for the steps taken thus far, steps not taken, merely having gratitude for all that life has presented us.

Much gratitude for those who take time to read, ponder, and allow the inner workings of self to come forward. Grateful for the feedback, love shared, and, more importantly, the Dance with Inspiration. Deep Peace.
