Addicted Towards Happiness

     ~Tonight A Free Ride ~

Tonight my thoughts are running towards 
my healing ocean, becoming the place 
where voluntarily I am convinced to watch 
the thousands of stars in the sky, illuminating 
my shore on arrival, to share my lively routine 
visits with this one whale friend that accidentally, 
have come to meet a few months ago. 

Approaching with a jester it looked me in the eye 
moved its head asking, why am I gloomy tonight?
come lady ride on my back let me take you away 
from your everyday thoughts let us experience our 
journey I invited the stars in the sky to lighten up 
your dimness tonight.

Yet, now that we have each other try a different 
approach towards your loneliness the wind is a 
friend and will not blow you away the moon 
promised a short visit to accompany the stars.

Accepting the proposal of that ride it will clarify
the energy of my inner body and soul the way 
my friend the whale has it looking up thinking 
counting the stars will give me the opportunity 
to dig deeper towards my senses, my spaciousness, 
peacefulness as a new approach. 

Suddenly with a falling star nothing seemed 
impossible to arouse my intense curiosity 
about life's mysteries how I ended up feeling 
that lonesome before I met my friend,
determined to lean towards my depth and discover 
my beauty and power that I have abandoned, 
when I failed to notice how much emptiness 
existed in my depth. 

Instantly I started feeling addicted towards 
my happiness I allowed my thoughts to stir
my presentiments understand my liveliness, 
after descending on shore.

Once arrived I thanked the stars that allowed 
me to enjoy the ocean cooperated to help me 
redeem an aluminous light through
my coming years. 

That voyage assembled my gladness 
to lean towards all the advantages 
that actually already exist beyond.
Thank you my friend. 
Always.

    I can relate. My daughter will be 19 next month and she's out on her own. I worry and miss her so and wish I could make her little again for one more day. Beautiful write. <3

    Hi Lori, most important let her feel you are her best friend. I am sure she has the wonderful basic education you gave her, try not to worry too much, they feel the pressure, and start keeping things to themselves. Love Terry xoxo

    Not only is this a beautiful piece of Prose, Terry, but haunting because each Mother must face the crisis of children growing up and leaving the nest...This is truly great! I love it! Love, Annalise

    Astounding, stunning and spellbinding prose, Terry...The lack of punctuation makes it even more so...I could be wrong here but this reads like one of those 'vivid dreams' that occur occasionally (not often enough for me!) Thank you for this - Tim
