Smell the sweet fragrance of life
Purge negative aromas and strife

Don’t let the gentle scent pass you by
Breathe in its pure content with a sigh

Clarity moves on waves of fresh air
Bringing streams of living vitality clear

Indulge in thoughts romantic and poetic
Evoking times, places, people, be aesthetic

Transport yourself on airborne streams
Abandon restraint, respond to your dreams

Let the fresh breeze engulf your realm
Listen intently for the message at the helm

Breath in new beginnings, new thoughts
Clear the air of stale retorts

Float free of time and sail away
Carrying hope, of love and joy replay

With delicate grace retrace the path
The fragrant buds of wisdom will surely last.

WORDS, WORDS, WORDS (c) By Polly Guerin

Spoken words are metamorphosistic

One minute they come crashing down

Another time words send you reeling
Or toss you around like a merry-go-round

Uncharted spoken words can be catastrophic
Without merit your limited view can be myopic

But life-giving words break down low self-esteem
Letting us accomplish beyond our choicest dreams

Just one loving compliment can change a life course
Pile on the compliments, “You’ve got the resource,”

Be the leader of your personal cheering squad
Shout out praises to everyone bold, out loud

Your positive words can set a person free
Just tell someone, “I’m proud of you,” and see

The door opening up wider to their destiny Your kind hearted gestures are full of glee

Restoring confidence where lackluster sits

Say ‘You’re great in what you do” it fits

Encouragement lets people choose to excel
Reach out; let someone know that you can tell

They’re someone special and ring a bell
Ringing out praises, announce they’re well

Kind words spread health and healing
Put your heart into every loving meaning

Keep the positive punch in every phrase
Do it often, feel the buoyant joy rephrase

Choose wisely the words that you convey
Bringing hope to all in need we pray.
