It’s Friday here in Australia, I have a CRAZY day ahead and thought I’d leave you with something positive…(apart from the fact that I had total “writers block” this morning!! arggggg)    Have a great day everyone and keep smiling!!


           One song can spark a moment,
         One flower can wake the dream.
        One tree can start a forest,
       One bird can herald spring.

     One smile begins a friendship,
    One hand clasp lifts a soul.
    One star can guide a ship at sea,
    One word can frame the goal.

    One vote can change a nation,
    One sunbeam lights a room.
     One candle wipes out darkness,
      One laugh will conquer gloom.

        One step must start each journey,
           One word must start each prayer.
               One hope will raise our spirits,
                  One touch can show you care.

                         One voice can speak with wisdom,
                             One heart can know what’s true.
                                One life can make the difference,
                                   You see, IT’S UP TO YOU!

  1. One candle wipes out darkness, and all the other one’s that trigger change in the world… A beautiful and insightful poem.

  2. Amanda, You shuld get writer’s block more often…this is just such a lovely poem you wrote. Such inspiration! I am Smiling! It truly is A BEAUTIFUL DAY BECAUSE OF BEAUTIFUL YOU! Thanks for these words…love the curve! Heartspell

  3. What an inspiring poem and reminder of how much we shape the world around us! How little it takes…

    It also reminds me how ONE BED makes a difference too. We were visiting relatives for several days and I couldn’t fit onto their air mattress along with my sweetheart who at 6’2″ takes up a lot of space, so I curled up on the floor instead. It was okay for a few nights, but when we got home last night, I fell into our big bed with such gratitude. Glad to be back amongst my writer friends too. Thanks so much for all your comments while we were away, especially on Farley’s poem.

    • There is certainly NOTHING in this world like your own bed, that’s for sure!! I hope you had a great time my friend and it warms my heart to see you here! Sending you much love always 🙂 🙂 xx

  4. creative layout and very inspiring wording…

    as one,
    we are unbeatable,
    we one,
    we have authentic fun,
    as one,
    everything can be done,
    as one,
    we all shine under the sun!

    loved your spirits here.

  5. Thank you for this – it seems our best stuff come when we believe, even truly believe, we have writers block!

  11. I love this message!
    Good luck with your day.

  12. divine one and only one ……one to know one to become everyone……

    one minus one is zero….once zero always zero

    one is ordinary… is extraordinary……

    one is a player… is referee…

    life is a journey between one and zero….

    when zero comes after one….it change to ten…then to hundred…..original
    face value lost….

    when zero comes before one….it always remains one……

    remaining one with oneself……with nature……with spirit……is happiness..
    and that is wisdom and enlightenment……

    love all….

  13. This is just like my poem “ONE”
