If God brought you to it,
He will get you through it.

Calm Waters

calm waves cover me
lull before another storm?
i am slowly sinking

i can choose to float
and go with life's ebb and flow
why am i sinking?

a moon child with a
water sign... melancholic...
challenging hurdle

Knowing we can choose, and choosing are two different things. Remember, stay in the sun and keep your eyes on The Son.

Hi! Sorry I haven't been to visit for awhile, though I did sign on as friends and get you updates on my new food site, Brookly in Transitions.

Bing, this is a lovely, lyrical poem ...I hope you don't feel as sad as the poem sounds.

tasithoughts October 6, 2010 at 9:39 PM  

Very deep and emotional....resonated with me.

liv2write2day October 6, 2010 at 10:06 PM  

Sad and beautiful, moon child. Time for reflection.

kathew October 6, 2010 at 10:15 PM  

Poignant and lovely....
and thanks for visiting my blog with your nice comments

Sherry Blue Sky October 6, 2010 at 10:59 PM  

This is very beautiful, Bing.....I think it is my favorite one of yours.I know the feeling of trying to flow with life, yet still getting overloaded with way too many challenges.........I love "moon child, with a water sign, melancholic". That is a haiku in itself........Very lovely. Hang in there.

Bloggin'withAmanda October 6, 2010 at 11:03 PM  

Wonderful Bing, you turned this weeks theme into a masterpiece!

penelopephoebe October 6, 2010 at 11:49 PM  

Gosh, you packed a lot into that piece....well done!

Emmanuel Ibok October 7, 2010 at 2:29 AM  

such a cute poem...You wont sink, your body is just getting used to the water...it shall soon float.

Cheers!

TALON October 7, 2010 at 6:55 AM  

This made me feel so sad...and yet there is some hope here, too, because it's like the sinking is a result of the thinking and the feelings involved and that when that changes, the sinking will stop. Very thoughtful and very intriguing imagery.

Bing (PinkLady) October 7, 2010 at 7:25 AM  

jingle, thanks for your concern. i'd be ok. muahhhhhh!

Bing (PinkLady) October 7, 2010 at 7:27 AM  

nalini, it's good that the sun keeps on shining. i'm holding on to that. i won't allow myself to drown. thanks for your kind words. :)

Bing (PinkLady) October 7, 2010 at 7:27 AM

Bing (PinkLady) October 7, 2010 at 7:30 AM  

kathew, i loved your piece this week. i hope to read more from you. thanks for stopping by. :)

Bing (PinkLady) October 7, 2010 at 7:44 AM  

sherry, it does get too heavy sometimes and make us feel like we're sinking. i guess that's part of going with the flow as long as we don't allow ourselves to drown.

thanks for you kind and comforting words. i really appreciate it. :)

Bing (PinkLady) October 7, 2010 at 7:44 AM  

amanda, thank you for the visit. i'm glad that you like my post. :)

emmanuel, what a refreshing comment! thanks for the reminder. :)

Bing (PinkLady) October 7, 2010 at 7:47 AM  

talon, you got it right. the sinking makes you think. but then sinking is different from drowning.

thank you for your nice comment. :)

Wenny Yap October 7, 2010 at 9:18 AM  

Life's trials and tribulations are like a storm at sea ... they are always followed by calm. Hang in there, you're a strong woman.

Bing (PinkLady) October 7, 2010 at 10:09 AM  

wenny, thank you for those nice words of encouragement. light will shine soon again. :)

Jenn @ Youknow...that Blog? October 7, 2010 at 10:49 PM  

Wow, so true. Sinking for a time happens, but eventually we have to remember to float again. Life's ebb and flow, sink and swim. Well done, Bing!

Ria October 8, 2010 at 12:18 AM  

The life guard in me is screaming "FLOAT!!!"

woih October 8, 2010 at 9:49 AM

Life is swimming through rough weather where hurdles come as waves and lash at us. Choice should be wise and entirely ours. Good work with the Haiku's

welcome to our potluck!
Thanks for the support,
Happy Tuesday!

soft ripples
distort the reflection
of the moon child
yet the melancholic beam,
guides the waves

This is a very soothing piece,I really love it.

Being happy doesn't mean everything's perfect. It means you decide to see beyond the imperfections.


"Count your blessings. Once you realize how valuable you are and how much you have going for you, the smiles will return, the sun will break out, the music will play, and you will finally be able to move forward to the life that God intended for you with grace, strength, courage and confidence." ~ Og Mandino


If I could wish for my life to be perfect, it would be tempting, but I would have to decline, for life would no longer teach me anything.
