TEA COOKIES AND LEMONADE

 

 

There she was sitting in her chair

The passage of time seen in her gray hair

She sits not in a chair on a throne of honor

 

Tea cookies and lemonade the silent child ate

Cookies salty-sweet this is how she will grow to be

Lemonade just enough tart you can see it from her heart

 

Words of wisdom in a melodious feminine tone

Encouraging us to rise up and tell me ...

MANTRA FOR ME

 

 

To hear my voice in the silence of my mind

Unaware on the outside the passing of time

In these dark crevices, what is it that I hide

 

The sound of mid-tones words

As the prayer wheel turns

A Mantra for me, I must learn.

 

The superstitions of religion created in the past

Stained glass images are not what they seem.

Contradictions of the forgiver will condem...

The Phoenix

I’ve weathered storms that I thought would drown me 

I’ve learnt to soar in winds I thought would consume me 

 

They say 

Out of the ashes must rise a new Phoenix 

The flame…

 

Being refined by fire

Through it, I’ll rise higher

The flames provide the fuel 

As I soar to my strength

 

Refined by fire

Gold purified 

A faith that stands.

Pen devoid of poems
adventure long overdue
living room carpet
growing long in the tooth
I’m pining for movement
so keen to get out
I’ll go walking down
to Holly Hagg

Little glimpses at normality
haloed by golden rays
There’s no poison 
in the idle river
no politics
in the quiet horse
cantering to 
another chew

The clouds of working day
part while I’m out walking
bathed in nat...

Small Gem

entry picture

 Make small gems,

Don't get angry.

There will always be houses,

Otherwise the car will be crushed.

You are my little gold,

And don't be angry.

You will learn to read and write,

There will be many famous and expensive.

Fill my chest,

There will be no more sorrow.

My daughter Hajera,

Pigeons of pride.

His anger in small words,

Who will explain the wire anymore.

A poem for Jon

entry picture

Once again I have written a PM to an old friend here at WOL

my reply to him sums up I feel what so many must be feeling at this time.

I know he will not mind me posting this on my Blog.

He has been and still is a constant support to myself and many others here.

 

So a poem to my friend Jon...

 

 

Jon, Jon my old friend I made you cry!

 

Tears of laughter... that's the...
