Inspired by this time space we currently find ourselves in....

The land of betwixt and between

What's been

Versus 

What is unseen

Next year hints

A clarity

Of vision

Perfect for

Leap year

Christmas Angels

Their existence on earth

Often so quizzical

A little eccentric

More ethric

Than physical

Sometimes they're

With us

Our lives 

They do touch

When others 

Dismiss us

Their smile

Means so much

They're guiding

Through life

From the smooth

To the rough

Reminding lost

Souls

That they are

Good enough

The gift of words

What you say this Christmas may be even more important than what presents you give ....

Some of them written

Most of them heard

Many are bitten

By the power

Of word

The gifts that 

You've given

Soon they forget

But choose words

With care

Lest a lifetime

Regret

Retrograde

Mercury retrograde is at the phase where it is giving us the chance to revisit lost opportunities with a second chance in sight. Useful to take note of whether you believe in astrology or not.

A reversal of seconds

Repairing the wreckage

Reckoning with time

Nonsense

An experiment in your observation ...

Having the grace to explore the alchemy of my soul

I was in the black, out of control

I'm strong enough now, to please 

Just myself

Shouldn't be easy for anyone else

 

Take a look at how

I've become so astute

Jumping and singing

Just like a cute newt

 

Flying high up off the ground

Slightly ruined 

But still around

November Horoscope

November begins on a point of tension

Now the political stuff 

I'll not even mention

Mercury retrograde has just begun

It can make a fool of anyone

You might be misunderstood

It could cause a delay

People from your past

May come back your way

Mars and Pluto in the boxing ring

Watch out for trouble

If you've had a secret fling

November 8th will touch your soul

Sometimes you just have to give yourself a break from feeling bitter and give yourself a chance to love something. This isn't just about romantic love.

The best kind of love

Is without conditions

No doubtful suspicions

Or painful omissions

There is no one reason

For the feeling

Never defending 

Or pretending

It just is

With No Ending

Birthday Flowers

Harsh words were spoken

A vase was then broken

Their only shared token

Of love

 

She'd waited for hours

For him to bring flowers

But instead he'd brought

Gardening gloves

This is not what she needs

Yet a packet of seeds

Is her gift

He'd practically bought

Without loving thought

And that was the
