Old Souls

July 5, 2015

Old souls enter my life like the gentlest of a summer breeze stirring love in my heart and wisdom in my mind.

Compared to their blooming fragrance,

I am but a bud.

As I continually strive for growth, I attempt to emulate them, for they open new doors to the possibility of being.

Teaching me with their quiet ways. . .

like a nudge from God.

Sometimes I wonder, who would I be if my soul suddenly awoke to all it’s potential?

Who would I be if I were an old soul?


At times I’ve had glimpses, but it fades. With me, there is an ebb and flow to my potential attached to the drama of life.

Old souls do not ebb; they only flow. . .

flow with love. . .

always with love. . .

for that is our core. Underneath all of the drama, at the core of each one of us, lies love.

The birds have their song. . .


the flowers have their bloom. . .


and we?


We have our love.

‘But the greatest of these is love.’

        Ha ha. Some of my characters might be old souls, but that’s about as far as it goes. I do love meeting people who feel like old souls, so connected to the heart with an innate wisdom that transcends physical boundaries and circumstances. ❤

    Julie, oh these words are so beautifully penned. New soul or old soul, we all are Love. When we realize this, we do flow, rising above the dramas of Life as we observe as from a distance. Your images shine with your Light and your gentleness and your words speak such Truth in utter simplicity. How perfect you are!! Thank you for this Gift you gave me today!! Love, Amy ❤
