Joys of nature

Tears flowed from my eyes
Love was filled all over the place
I had to farewell with a heavy heart

The element of surprise

I can be started with just a tiny spark, But beware I might go beyond my mark. As I continue to grow it gets difficult to stop me! I create terror and spread havoc among all Burning everything from big to small; Every plant and every tree. I’m difficult to control, But I burn in…

Red bird of winter

Every morning you call to me. Long after the leaves have fallen, you still come to perch on thorny branches. Today your song is a reproach: tsk, tsk. I couldn’t sleep again. I rise from bed, my hip aching and watch you pick your way, through frozen tufts of grass. Your red does not fade.…

Twilight

Soft comes the hush of eventide And songbirds hide In limbs of budded trees To bid farewell to setting sun With lullabies they’ve sung Each night for centuries. A lark is winging swiftly home – Black dot alone – Beneath auroral clouds. All nature makes a homeward rush As twilight’s rosy blush The eyes of…

Rainbow bridge

I looked to the meadows with tears in my eyes,
The memories were flowing with such a surprise.

The magic in the moment

They swirled, turned and swept me
Off my feet
Dodging and scooping
The magic in the moment

A beautiful fall

The leaves are changing and so is the weather It’s time to put away the shorts and put on the sweater Halloween is near and Thanksgiving is coming My favorite time of year this is becoming ‘Tis the season of pumpkin and apple An ordinary time for loved ones to meet at the chapel I…

My love for nature

And when the sun is gone, I love the moon that shines so bright,
I love the sounds of crickets and other creatures of the night.

A pink rose

Its petals are as pink as the color of strawberry ice cream.
As soft as a baby bird’s feather.
It smells of sweet perfume,
And the scent of clean clothes.

The Queen of the Night

Precious wonder under the calm moonlight
You are the gracious Queen of the Night

Someday a mountain

I’m going to be a mountain someday and just stand all the time stalwart and mighty collecting crystal’s from heaven and dispersing them ever so gently kindly and impartially to thirsty fields below I will rise to alpine stature I will be a mountain firm and ever a humble beacon a lofty rising peak that…

Beauty of nature

And when the sun sets, and the moon rises,
Leaving beautiful colours in the sky,
Is what nature is called.

Inside our dreams

Where do people go to when they die? Somewhere down below or in the sky? ‘I can’t be sure,’ said Grandad, ‘but it seems They simply set up home inside our dreams.’ © Jeanne Willis

Silent tears

Each night we shed a silent tear,
As we speak to you in prayer.

Death is nothing at all

Nothing is past; nothing is lost
One brief moment and all will be as it was before

I am not gone

I am not gone I remain here beside you Just in a different form Look for me in your heart And there you will find me in our love which forever lives on In those moments when you feel alone Look for me in your thoughts And there you will find me in sweet memories…

She is gone

You can shed tears that she is gone
Or you can smile because she has lived
You can close your eyes and pray that she will come back
Or you can open your eyes and see all that she has left

Let me die a youngman’s death

Let me die a youngman’s death
not a free from sin tiptoe in
candle wax and waning death
not a curtains drawn by angels borne
‘what a nice way to go’ death

Life

Life, believe, is not a dream
So dark as sages say;
Oft a little morning rain
Foretells a pleasant day.

What is pain

Pain is waiting for the end of all the pain

Back in the day

I can’t believe I’m not young anymore.
I am feeling the passage of time.
So I looked for an answer for what I should do,
And here is the answer that’s mine.

Demons of darkness

These demons can’t be seen
But they’re far from fairy tales
They live inside your mind
Their evilness prevails

Short life summary

Whether it’s twenty years or one hundred-twenty,
Live it with a purpose to be greater than many.
Most likely life will be long;
So live it with the future in mind
Because if you act in the moment life is never kind.

Never stop being you

Never stop building bridges that lead to better tomorrows.
Never stop trying, and don’t give into sorrow.
Never stop feeling amazed at the beauty that surrounds you.
Never stop hearing the music, and don’t give into the blues.

The paradoxical commandments

The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.

Lessons

There’s beauty in struggle,
There’s feeling in pain.
For every painstaking mistake,
There are lessons you can name.

The choice is mine

Life may not let me choose my lot, But whether I’d be happy or not… That is my choice. To leave hurtful memories behind Or allow them to bother my mind… The choice is mine. To fret over a mistake when it’s done Or learn from it and move on… The choice is mine. To…

The true meaning of life

People I loved,
Have come and have gone,
But the world never stopped,
And we all carried on.

Woman Work

I’ve got the children to tend The clothes to mend The floor to mop The food to shop Then the chicken to fry The baby to dry I got company to feed The garden to weed I’ve got shirts to press The tots to dress The can to be cut I gotta clean up this…

In all ways a woman

In my young years I took pride in the fact that luck was called a lady. In fact, there were so few public acknowledgments of the female presence that I felt personally honored whenever nature and large ships were referred to as feminine. But as I matured, I began to resent being considered a sister…
