Atlantic Coast Ireland and Those Sunset Walks…

Hello you!

I wrote the following mindful/reflective poem using the writing prompt ‘tranquil paradise’! It was such a lovely prompt to work with: as it transported me back to when my hubbie and I were on hols in my homeplace in Ireland with our girls. We would do nightly sunset walks along the beach – when our girls were tucked up in bed back in nana & grandads. The beach was a stone throw away and it was such a lovely evening ritual. I grew up in this place & now realise how much I took it for granted.

With lockdown we haven’t been back home since last summer. But we’ll be back again within the next few months (all going well 😉)


Poem

Sunset walks

Atlantic Coast of Ireland and
Those daily sunset walks –
Shimmers on the salty sea
Gold glistens as we talk
A Gentle breeze grazing my cheeks,
Sounds of swishing waves
Tranquil paradise: I dip my
Toes and splash away.
Feathers float in setting skies
Horizon mixed with glows
On a shore where I grew up
Such beauty as it shows
Surfers surf in paradise like
Dolphins play with waves
Serene sunset, Atlantic Coast
Sunset walks, those summer days


Have a lovely day and keep writing – it really is good for the soul 🙏💫!



Random acts of kindness can be so ‘powerful’…

It can be random, but so powerful at the same time. Have you ever been ready to buy a parking ticket then someone comes along, and hands you theirs as they leave? Or any type of little acts of kindness? It can be the simple little gestures that really touches you in such a heartfelt way.

During one of my walks recently, I happened to come across this beautiful little tree that was bursting with joy – filled with lots of lovely toys from children, crochet gifts and for anyone to take away if they needed to. It really did put a big smile on my face.

Throughout a time of great sadness in our world, its the little thoughtful things like this that can brighten your day and give ‘you’ that little bit of a lift and to show there is so much ‘kindness’ out there!


Like a little fairy tree 🧚‍♀️

A little crochet gift to brighten your day 💗

Adorable 💛

We all need a little lift and kindness to each other goes such a long way, no matter how big or small. Its the simple little things in life.


Love a cherry blossom tree 🌸

Look at shining stars
Twinkling in darkened crisp skies
Small lights of power


Stay safe, be kind, keep smiling, look out for each other and lift each other up ❤.
