What moves your soul?

There are so many things that move my soul.
I struggle to transform the emotions to words and to paper.
You know those fleeting moments of feelings
They send goose bumps up your back
Make you shiver with joy.
It can be something as simple as a chord of your favorite song.
It just zings me for a brief moment and I smile.

The intoxicating smell of honey suckle.
Transforms me to a different time and era.
It takes my breath away.
I pause and inhale theses little bits of the moment.
These sweet jewels that I often forget to embrace,
Oh so simple, yet fulfill my world, moves my heart.
Inspires me.
Shakes me, makes me fall to my knees in sheer awe of the moment.

What moves your soul?

A beautiful piece of art work in a museum.
Summons memories of a college painting class.
And the innocence of youth.
A morning sun filled with lyrical notes from the song birds.
Evening stars sparkling so high in the sky
While the lightening bugs fly to and fro
Encircling the trees on the soft breeze of the night.
Life's little simple moments.
Let them speak to you.

I feel like I have a secret with in my soul.
Just for me, it all unfolds.
My happy place is where I go.
Free from the sorrow I know.
Yes, I have a secret.
My own peace of joy.
Takes me away.
On the wings of time.
Let it speak to your soul.

Beautifully written Pam.
What moves my soul?
Hearing my daughter laugh.
Snapping a photo at just the right time.
Music.
Rain at night.
Sunsets.
And so much more!

Thank you DeEtta for the comment. I needed some inspiration today.
It is snowing here. I can't believe it.


Dawn, What a nice list! Your photography and poetry moves my soul. I hope all is well with you.

What a moving peace my friend. That is just wonderful. My family and friends move my soul of course. The laughter of a child, the crashing of waves on the beach and the sun setting at night are among the few :) Much aloha :)

Insightful thoughts, cause me think.....making music moves my soul and opens a window like nothing else does, to see beyond myself, to grow and to just be.

These are wonderful thoughts that help us to look inward. What does move me? The older I get the more simple things in life move me.

My grandchildren, a sunset, a rainbow, the sound of a 20 inch box fan in my window blowing gentle warm breezes...I could go on...

Thank you for your kind comment you left me today...well, yesterday now LOL

Blessings sweet friend.
