The Trusting LadyB on Her Mobile Throne

At about 4 in the afternoon I was on my way home, walking out  of the building I work in, I noticed something flapping in a distress motion, so thankful to my awareness and my curiosity I was welcomed to a delicate butterfly in the corner of the building’s entrance, attempting to be stable or catch its flight from the cold stone floor, however the amazing beauty whom I shall call      Lady B  was missing a leg, so I offered my hand to the little miss Lady B and to my surprise  she hopped on and closed her wings finding her balance on my tilting index finger.

So on her Mobile throne the little Majesty kept her balance,  as I walked out of the building into the open, under the glorious shinning sun, I felt that the wind would have been to strong for the Lady B and quickly moved my hand close to my chest and with my Right hand covering her gentle body.

Now  finding myself as her guarding and not knowing what to do or how not change too much of her surroundings whilst walking to my uncle’s car I passed a bed of green grass with little yellow flowers on man-made bank.  ah! I thought to myself this place looks almost fairytale, so I leaped on the bank moved close to the flowers and offered my hand as a step to one of the long blades of grass.

Her Majesty the Lady B hopped off her throne and caught hold of the green grass, as I was leaving and biding her farewell she flapped open her wings and allowed me to see her beauty. She was decorated with black strokes of waves as to resemble the priceless intricate carvings on the Taj Mahal on a splash of soft yellow. Looking back once more and in an awe feeling of being gifted this rare privilege of playing mobile throne I prayed for her walked away leaving her in the care of nature.

You must be wondering why am I telling you all this, and thinking am I wasting my time reading this ? Firstly this story is not about me it is about the butterfly whom needed help in the smallest way possible, and put her trust in some being (me).
Secondly you are not wasting your time, I think it possible and the right choice to be aware and alert of the surrounding we inhabit for it costs nothing to be kind to nature.

Thirdly keep in mind peacefully these powerful quotes…

“Be still like a mountain and flow like a great river.” Lao-Tse (604-531 BCE)
“Non-violence leads to the highest ethics, which is the goal of all evolution. Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages.”
Thomas Edison

Peace is the only way ….

One makes a Difference

We all have ability. The difference is how we use it.

Stevie Wonder

The following story is not my own, and I’m not sure who wrote it, however after reading it you will……. well I leave that to the reader.

Once upon a time there was a wise man who used to go to the ocean to do his journal writing. He had a habit of walking on the beach before he began his work.

One day he was walking along the shore. As he looked down the beach, he saw a human figure moving like a dancer. He smiled to himself to think of someone who would dance to the day. So he began to walk faster to catch up.

As he got closer, he saw that it was a young man and the young man wasn’t dancing, but instead he was reaching down to the shore, picking up something and very gently throwing it into the ocean.

As he got closer he called out, “Good morning! What are you doing?”

The young man paused, looked up and replied, “Throwing starfish in the ocean.”

“I guess I should have asked, why are you throwing starfish in the ocean?”

“The sun is up, and the tide is going out. And if I don’t throw them in they’ll die.”

“But, young man,don’t you realize that there are miles and miles of beach, and starfish all along it. You can’t possibly make a difference!”

The young man listened politely. Then bent down, picked up another starfish and threw it into the sea, past the breaking waves and said, “It made a difference for that one.”

 

 

 

 

The power is in each human being, the power to help, to save and the power to think about being normal,But what is Normal ? and  how do we define normal ? looking at the world that I see everyday, I pray I am not the normal,for If that is the normal out there then I rather be abnormal.

May peace become an uncontrollable plague.

 

 

 

Hide and seek, but why mum ?

Ruby the rhino, had given birth to a strong son, whom she named nohorn, as time passed nohorn was growing up to be a little nosy rhino. His mum, ruby always would talk about how curious her son was to the other animals, at their daily meet at the waterhole. One day as they where approaching the waterhole, nohorn was looking far ahead into the green land, and asked his mother

mum why are u always hiding me away from my friends?

ruby : oh son its a game called hide and seek, when ever i tell you to hide you must, and then I’ll seek you out.

nohorn : seek ? what is that mum

ruby : nohorn, to seek is when i will count the black stripes on the a zebra, and then come find you, but you must always be still and silent so that i cant find you, so that you will win that game.

nohorn: soo mum if you don’t find me then i win ?but mum what if you don’t ever find me ?

ruby : oh no no, nohorn that’s impossible, i shall always find you. but if you get lost just find Mrs Lowah the Queen lioness, and she will find me as quick as an eagle’s eye.

nohorn: but where will she be mmmmum ?

ruby : you will always find her close to the waterhole.

nohorn: okay mommumy

ruby: nohorn, don’t talk and eat at the same time.

nohorn; ohh mum mum stop scolding meeee.

so as the winter passed, spring sprung up with tall sunflowers amidst thick green grass that attracted all the  different animals, including a tall  funny looking animal, which had only two feet.

It was in the early in the morning when, ruby slowly work up nohorn, and told him to be silent so that he wont wake up the wise owl, who was above them in a tall tree. Ruby told nohorn, “come son lets play hide and seek”  excited to play the game, the little rhino went on to hide between the tall green grass, as his mother pretended to look for a zebra.

while nohorn was inside the tall grass  he heard a loud noise that sounded like a jumping elephant, that scared him and made him cry out for his mum. He walked out of the green grass trembling, calling “moom mum, mummmy where are you”, and then he saw the some of the tall two feet animals. Nohorn was getting scared and sad, he wanted his mummy so he was going to ask the tall two feet  one’s , if they had seen his mum, but as he walked closer and closer, he saw his mum sleeping on the sand, and one of the 2-feet animal was pulling his mum’s white crown. confused nohorn, was getting very scared so he slowed down, as he saw the two feet animals where going away and as soon as they were gone he ran towards his mother.

The horror in his little eye’s was too much for him to understand, he tugged and called his mum, running around her in circles pushing his head on her still body. Poor nohorn, started to tell his mum “mum im here wake up, stop seeking mooom moummm”, pushing her again, with his face saying “please wake up mummy”

Nohorn got tired, and went close to his mum, pushing him self as close to her as possible, slowly falling of to sleep close to his mum.

One of the saddest acts on earth is forceful separation of mother and child, however only when man(2-feet animal) feels this pain he causes on other forms of life will he think beyond money. Daily there are poor baby rhinos orphaned by pouches, whom murder the adult rhinoceroses for their horns.

The world is a joyful place, if you chose to close your eyes.

Peace is always the option.
