Hello one and all! I'll be getting back to reading and reposting soon. Please bear with me in that regard as I'm moving a bit slower these days. Respectfully asking that you continue to use #ceesreposts to tag me to your work, rather than my account name. Blessings, Carolyn
TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN: As I stated several weeks ago, due to a conflict of interest, and because I'm not fully knowledgeable about both sides of the situation, I will not be and have not been rendering verdicts on any posts pertaining to the India/Kashmir/Pakistan situation or the boycott/strike situation. If necessary, please check with Mirakee for further verification.
The following piece was borne of a request from my dear Ruchita of @the_procrastinating_poet, thus I dedicate it to her with a lot of love. ♥️
THREE ANGELS by Carolyn Glackin Yes, I would send you Three angels and more All for a dear one The heavens adore To lovingly guide you To keep you on track To seek you and find you To bring you right back To lead you here to us So you don't go astray To shine their bright light So you'll find your way Yes, I would send you Three angels and more And straight to the heavens I'd always implore That the Lord's loving presence Is there by your side So you've nothing to fear And no reason to hide For long is the path And dark is the night But you deserve peace It's your God given right! So, always I'll send you Three angels and more And remind you of good things This life has in store You're never alone You're never unloved Neither here on this Earth Nor the heavens above And I'd tell you one last thing If kindly, you'll bear me It's very important So I hope that you'll hear me Yes, I would send you Three angels, my dear But there's really no need 'Cause they're already near.

P.S. I'm still on hiatus from reading and reposting. Take good care and see y'all soon.
I'm taking a brief break from reading, reposting, commenting, and responding to comments right now, so thank you for bearing with me on that. Posting this piece I wrote back in September of 2018 for today's challenge, as hosted by Mirakee, featuring the word 'sword.' Thank you for reading.
The line 'Jesus ain't coming tonight' was borrowed from @engaged_guilty, whom we miss and hope will be rejoining us soon. ♥️
This is my submission for the daily challenge hosted by Mirakee, featuring today's word 'embers.' The words 'to all things, there's a season' are attributed to Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 of the King James bible. Blessings, and thank you for reading.
MATTERS OF PERCEPTION by Carolyn Glackin Like salt to the wound Always bleeding you dry Parched like the desert No tears left to cry
Like the smoldering embers In a dwindling fire Or the final remains Of a once true desire
Like the words to that love song You've long since forgotten Now they leave your mouth dry As if filled up with cotton
Like the plans you once made But they changed over time Now they're lost and disjointed Like the poem that once rhymed
Like the unanswered question That still burns in your heart But you try to ignore it 'Cause it tears you apart
Like the day without night And the night without end Or the relentless truth That won't let you pretend
Like the moth to the flame 'Cause it just can't resist Like the gal past her prime Who still hasn't been kissed
Like the trees without leaves Or the birds without song At a glance, things seem fine But you know something's wrong
So you're wracking your brain Trying to suss out the reason But it seems you've forgotten To all things, there's a season
You've been trying too hard You've been forcing things through Now you're anxious and restless You don't know what to do
Take a breath, close your eyes Then get centered within Now just let it all flow And start living again
Be open, be willing Let life follow its course And if you can do that You'll have little remorse
Take time to enjoy With delight and dismay All the natural beauty The world's sending your way
Honor your wisdom Follow your path Seek not revenge Leave out hatred and wrath
Keep your eyes open wide And your mind and heart too And there won't be a limit To the things you can do
Now I leave you in peace To consider each word And I offer my thanks It's a gift to be heard. Copyright Carolyn Glackin 7/26/2019.

Sunrise serenade along the Rivers edge Yesterday's trials no longer to dredge The rays peaking out bring a sense of new With lights of holograms and prisms hue Shadows dance merrily across the scenery While ladybugs and caterpillars enjoy the greenery What is starting out as a beautiful morning Ends the daylight with sighs, and the sky, Stars adorning
Paint my soul white with few dark spots So that it never forgets that bad lies in goodness too Let the crimson love flow with a tinge of blue To remind that too much of it will be poisonous too Eyes might curb the green shade over the blue mark of loyalty As amour tends to be possessive lovingly Paint my mind with the greens of the leaves Let it embrace the lost essence of peace Mind goes haywire searching a light of hope Dreams getting drowned pulled by the dark fate of rope Let the soul relishing the fruits of positivity get churned in colourful wish The path of life tabbed in bright vision enrich Soak the thoughts in deep blue , flow it as a river Let not it be stagnant and still and shiver Let not it get diverted in others value and screams Splash it over my senses with different tints and let me colour my dreams
