Seeker



"Enchanting Iris" ©2017 Meri Arnett-Kremian
Surround yourself with beauty
and revel in it.

However you define it,
notice it.

Let it soothe your soul.

The more we seek beauty,
the more we find.

Be a seeker of beauty.

Digging Deep

Sometimes wishing and hoping
won't get it done.

You've just got to dig deep
and do the thing you can't imagine
having the resolve to accomplish.

Outside Looking In



Do you ever have the feeling
that you're somehow outside yourself,
just watching things unfold,
somehow both present and outside time?

Have you ever felt that you were outside,
looking in, feeling like no matter what you do,
you'll never fit in?

Have you ever wished for the power to shape shift?
Or a cloak of invisibility?
Or a titanium case to protect your heart?

Tell me all about it.

I'm working myself up to do something
that is the right thing to do,
but will come at great emotional cost.
I'm wishing and feeling a lot of things
in the process.

Has this ever happened to you?
Maybe your story will fortify me
for what lies ahead.

Things that Excite Me


1. Reflections


2. Bunches of flowers in pails at the grocery store.


3. A glimpse of a rainbow (especially double ones).


4. The hustle and bustle of Pike Place Market
early Saturday morning.



5. A well-dressed window display.



6.  Old layered posters and handbills, peeling and fading,
and making their own shabby art.



7. Star magnolias, showing off their dainty blossoms.
