“PERSPECTIVE …” SHE SAID SPOKEN WORD CAT FORSLEY ©

“Perspective …”

She Said -

As She Opened her petals one by one .

Slowly – Languidly She Opened

To Reveal the inner most truth of whom she Is

I imagine a speech bubble  above her inner core:

Like A Child Draws

Like a Child Loves

Like a Child Does

A World Within Her

Yet she is Tiny

And Blooms For just a  few days .

I Find Joy and Grace in her Little words

Her Unfolding Nature

Nature Unfolds Her .

She is simple yet holds a miracle

in all her gestures

She is Born Of Earth and Air and Water

Lives – Lives – Lives

Blooms to Full capacity

and then she Fades and withers

Her Petals drop

One By One

Leaving Proof That she was here .

“Perspective “

She said That one afternoon

When The Earth was spinning

at speed I cannot even comprehend

In My Mind

“Perspective ……..”

and she said more …..

“We are worlds within worlds and specks of littleness that No one can see .

A dot

But a Universe as well”

And then she added ….

“To Really Know Yourself

You have to have perspective.

You are Nothing and everything

You are Just a Heart in a Body.

The Only Thing You leave behind when You Go

is Love ….”

An Inner Dialogue with a Flower

A Tulip

Is a wonderful way To Spend The day …

  1. OH MY GOSH – WE WERE – IN THE SAME PLACE TODAY!
    I ABSOLUTELY ADORE THIS POST OF YOURS.
    COULD HEAR HER DIALOGUE….
    FELT LIKE YOU AND I HOVERING IN SPACE HAVING THIS CONVERSATION
    WITH THE PETALS OF A TULIP…
    A ROSE….
    MAGNOLIAS.

    I HEARD THE SHADED GRASSES BECKONING ME TODAY.
    TURNED TO GO….
    BUT COULDN’T.
    I HAD TO SIT THERE A WHILE….
    ASKING THEM WHAT THEY WISHED TO SAY.

    ‘PERSPECTIVE’ SEEMS TO SUM IT UP BEAUTIFULLY.
    I LOVE THIS.

    LOVE-ING YOU….
    FROM GEORGIA TO YOU….
    XOXOXO

  2. I KNOW HUH ……

  3. “specks of littleness that No one can see”

    All I can think of is the tiny speck inside an oyster that turns into a pearl. I love it. I hear these things in most everything. Perspective, indeed.

  4. Cat all your poems are marvelous but this one is just superb….what an amazingly lovely inspiring poetry :)
    yes we all are small dots and yet big universes in ourselves and the aura we leave behind lets colour it with love :)
    loved it :)
    God has written poetry and quotes in so many forms all around us if we just take time to see and listen to them..every bird,flower,creature tells us hundreds of beautiful things :)
    This is not just a poetry, its a prayer and a mantra for not just surviving but LIVING

  8. yes….it’s all about perspective and being aware of how lucky we really are…and appreciating the small things and dealing with the bigger things as they come along – taking care of the ones we love above all is its own reward and ‘the’ point of perspective

  21. Cat this is indeed such an excellent entry my wonderful friend.. Flowers Give of themselves and do their best in BEING the BEST they can be.. There whole purpose is to GIVE LOVE.. They are there at our Births, our Birthdays our anniversaries, they are there when we are sad, they are there as a pick me up. and they are there at our End..
    A flowers life ends when we pick it.. so that we may enjoy its beauty for a short while within our homes..
    Today my home is full of them, as yesterday was a celebration for me.. and I give them Thanks for their beauty..
    I thank you Cat for also giving them your power, your thoughts as your merged within their LOVE..
