Day of reckoning
I thought he was lost
but he was on a mission
sent to remind me
There’s nothing to fear
It’s all made up in my mind
time to release it
He carries his truth
Just like the shell on his back
and then returns home
WE ALL RETURN HOME
Ah! Hello my friends. I just read a post by my dear friend, Michael, from Embracing Forever. So many times his writing is an arrow that goes directly to my heart.
This post just capped off a beautiful week for me, one of trust, love and healing. It reminded me of an encounter I had at my pool, the day prior to my surgery. I was reminded I took photos of my visitor and of the feeling of peace and comfort my little friend provided.
When I read Michael’s post it all felt so synergistic! I was inspired to write this multiple haiku and to share it all with you. Do, please, check out Michael’s home if you have not already. Enjoy!! 🙂

So pleased you have enjoyed a fulfilling week Lorrie, and I must endorse your recommendation of Michael’s sublime work which never fails to inspire. H <3
Ah! Yes…dear Hariod. I know you feel Michael’s work 🙂 I love to follow the comments between you two…incredible energy! May this Sunday find you peaceful and in light energy ♡♡
I Love your wording of returning to Source, Faith and Trust along with Ms. Turtle. Lorrie you are a sustaining Angel sent to minister to those going through trials and tribulations. Your poetry resonates with me. Thank you!
Thank you, my sister in faith! Your words wash me in love and I am so grateful for your support!! I am so happy my words can give you some comfort, DeBorah. I know dark times can be frightful…I just wish to help people and let them know they are not alone…they are never alone! Much love…hope you will get out for a Memorial Day picnic!! ♡
Thank you for the lovely reminder to be at peace with what is, how it is, how I am.
Thanks Louise!! 🙂 A giant smile and lots of love ♡♡
Awww…this is a sweet one. 🙂 An encounter well-described.
Have a great weekend, Lorrie! Peace and luvz, UT
Hey Uncle Tree! Thanks my friend. It was really funny because he scared me at first…I let out, not quite a snake scream but, a scream all the same. 🙂 Hope you have a fantastic Memorial Day weekend! ♡
So the tantric turtle visited you too! 🙂 I’m so glad you returned home to love and peace Lorrie. Thank you for sharing your heart and journey with us. May everyone know the peace of love.
From your lips…Brad!! Yes…it feels really good to go home…the true home of all…LOVE!! 🙂 I am so happy you are along for the journey ♡
And yes! The turtles have been very busy 😉
I’m delighted to know you and share the journey. Maybe one day, I’l visit you and the beach. I miss the beaches back east living inland. 🙂
That would be awesome, my friend. I know how you miss the beach! 🙂
Yes, I miss swimming and playing in the ocean. 🙂
The haiku is so beautiful and inspirational. Your little friend’s visit was well timed, like they often are 🙂 have a wonderful weekend, Lorrie XX
Hi Tiny!! I knew you would appreciate this visit 🙂 I’d hoped to get him entering the water…but it was not to be. I love him and will never forget him!! Blessed weekend…♡
Loved the turtle and the symbolism. There are no accidents in life. Glad to know you are doing well, Have a wonderful Memorial weekend.
I’m happy you met my turtle, Marlene!! I thought you would love him…and the message he brought 😉 Many blessings dear friend! ♡
So “of course” Lorrie, I just read Michaels post before I came to your page! I was intrigued by your comment and had no idea you had surgery! We are all synchronistically allowing our love within to shine!
heal quickly, and love like there is only now! Heart to Heart Robyn
Thank you dear Robyn!! We are all connected…that is for sure 🙂 I’m so happy you read Michael’s post first. Have a wonderful Memorial Day…much love to you ♡♡
Thank you, my sister!! ♡♡
Oh wow, you had a turtle come right up to your pool/place? That’s great. My son would have loved that. I liked what you said about fear being made up in the mind. It’s so true, isn’t it? Fear, like many feelings, can often blind us, don’t you think? I’m glad the turtle served to bring you some comfort and tranquility before going in for surgery Lorrie.
Hi Staci…yes! That wonderful little turtle gave me so much comfort…but he did scare the heck out of me at first 😉 Have a beautiful week dear friend ♡
Ohhhhh, he scared you? I’m sure he’s harmless. I guess he caught you by surprise eh. Hehehe.
You also have a beautiful week Lorrie.
Nice to see you back spreading the love Lorrie🌸 As always
Thanks Lisa ♡ Have a beautiful week. P.S. Big blue has been calling me 😉
Awesome. Pick up the call Lorrie! Can you believe Julie and I are into the 300’s now, woot woot. It feels like life is cracking open and rising up and falling apart all in a mystical mess of re-birth. Does that make sense?
Oh, yes!!! It makes perfect “falling apart for rebirth” sense! 🙂 Many blessings Lisa ♡
Thanks for a bit of “affirmation” for my day! 🙂
🙂 Awesome!! Now go slay it! Blessings ♡
I often think the Universe sends us these little gifts to remind us all now and again to take stock, slow down and enjoy the scenery.. Yes we all return home, much better to enjoy the views we have along the way! 🙂 and savour our time in the present.. 🙂
Sending you tons of love and added you to my healing book of thoughts Lorrie.. I will go visit Michael, as I catch up again with friends.. 🙂 Have a peaceful day .. Love and Blessings.. Sue <3
Yes, Sue, they are little gifts! Each and every one of them 🙂 I am so aware of nature and all of God’s creatures. I’m so lucky to live in a place where a turtle can visit, or an iguana can wink at me! The snakes…well…I’m grateful for them too…I just don’t want to get up close and personal with them! Thank you for your beautiful healing thoughts…I will soak up that energy and add it to my own and be all better in no time! ♡
Yes you will, Love and Healing sent.. xxx

Meg, thank you so much! Your words mean so much to me. I’m so happy you know Michael, he is stellar 🙂 Hope all is well with you …and again, I am really happy we connected. Have a blessed weekend ♡♡
