A luminous Diamond in her day….

My Mother passed into glory 33 years ago this month.
This is a tribute to her…..

mum 3There was gentleness about her eyes
a luminous diamond in her day.
I felt emotion in her sighs,
her dreams to love and so to pray.

No words express a heart that cries,
fears she had I dare not say.
Her endless love and soul ties,
hopes and dreams they go astray…

We meet at night above the skies,
dancing beyond the Milky Way.
In the canopy of stars time flies,
when past the asteroids we play.

There was gentleness about her eyes
they were of an ashen grey
I felt emotion in her sighs
into radiance she found her way….



Constant Friends

“In joy or sadness flowers are our constant friends.”
― Kakuzō OkakuraThe Book Of Tea

flowers 4

flowers brighten sombre days,
in pale tones and bright arrays.

when hope sneaks
behind the clouds,
and joy is veiled with heavy shrouds,
blossoms flourish everywhere,
freeing us from deep despair!

in times when life looses meaning,
beneath the pain
of hardly breathing,
a whiff of joy,
will burst to life,
bringing light to downcast eyes!

and fill sanctuaries
with fragrant care,
to illuminate darkness,
and display flair!

with constant friends we’ll forever belong,
emboldening us,
to rewrite our song!



“We should consider every day lost on which we have not danced at least once.”
― Friedrich Nietzsche

dance to the resonance

she danced to the resonance
of whispering trees,
cradled by the taste
of invigorating breeze

the swirl and rhythm
of what hope should mean,
intoxicated silence
in zero gravity

euphoric tempo summoned her
and in stillness of mind
she lived her strength
