Premium Member Fidget Spinners Meditation
Around…around…around they go;
plastic spinners in a row.
Day and night, they spin away;
little dervishes at play.

Children spin them constantly;
like little tops, so happily.
As planes spinning out in space;
they put a smile upon the face.

Colored chakras spinning free;
activating energy.
Ecstatic, super-charged rings;

I WISH THAT I WAS AN EAGLE
The Eagle of Isaiah 40:31*…

Activating achievement-appearance
Blowing blessings’ brilliance
Carrying changes’ chance
Directing drive-dare despite distance…

Extending endurance effortlessly
Fueling faith-fervor fully
Greeting God’s goodness’ glow graciously
Hoisting hopefulness-height hastily…

Increasing influence in instructing 
Joining journey’s joy-jolting
Kindling kindness keeping kindred-knitting  
Leading love’s lighting…

Nurturing nourishment-needs naturally
