Haiku: I dreamt of you

Once, I dreamt of you
Shimmered veils of paradise
Brought peace to my soul

Lists.

I wrote this post on my other blog, earlier in the year, about taking the next step.  In it, I refered to a list I made at the start of the year, a list of values and attributes that I considered important in the man I want to be with in life.  Here is that list, in no particular order:

Honesty
Atrractive/ Fit/ Healthy
Spark
Humor
Ambition
Passion
Energy/Energetic
Spontaneous/Initiates activities or time together
Calm
Caring
Affectionate, and shows it
Loving
Family is important to him
Empathy
Has a good circle of friends and close friends
Has interests that are varied
Trust
Respectful
Spiritual
Education – ongoing learning is important
Creative

I wote that list, looked at it, and thought it was a little like whistling in the wind.  The universe/God/higher power looked at that list and took up the gauntlet.  I am now with a man who has all of those values and attributes.

The universe/God/higher power has given me what I’ve asked for and it is up to me to take up this chance, this soul lesson, and open myself up to whatever I am supposed to experience, and yes…learn.

Scary?  Most definitely.

Liberating?  Most definitely.

Withe my eyes wide open, heart in my hand, and my soul ready, I recognize this gift I have been given.  My task is to nurture it, treasure it, nourish it, and watch it flourish.

Day by day.
