Unfurled

When waking each morning we unfurl
[as the brightly coloured flags uncurl]

We quickly answer nature’s call
[they send their prayers out to all]

Then briefly map out your week
[flapping across the snow peaks]

Reflect deeply on what you seek
[and flung over the deep valley’s]

Set your aims for that day
[with fluttering they fray]

Start refreshed and focused
[yet the idea is truly blessed]

Best way to make the most of our life
[for it’s believed they minimise our strife]

daily prompt:  Unfurl  a friend’s photo

          1. I have come to realize (*this is strictly my personal view) that all religions are the “same” in that it teaches us good. It is the language of purporting the message that is different. Usually the cultural nuance play a role in making it different. As a Catholic, I was made to strictly do things for the faith, little was left for me to question as the faith did not encourage questioning. It came down to me as I GOD, you listen, obey and do. With the Buddhist teachings, it encourages me to think and ask questions. It is a profound and deeply enriching experience for me. One that I can find meaning and understanding. I remain in spiritual limbo to seek and find understanding in what is faith and how it applies to me in my life. I am sorry to hear of your bro-in law. I hope he found the peace he needed and that he did not suffer. Blessings – Namaste! Have a good Friday Kate.
