Mother

Mother Nature
Omnipotent across all realms
And likewise
A Mother’s heart
Touching her offspring
Like dew drops resting on the blades of grass
To the oceans mighty waves
Like the buds of Spring
To the fullness of summer’s blooms
Like the smallest humming bird
To the magnificent soaring Eagle
Across an open plain
To the highest mountain peak
Everywhere, enduring
Boundless, beautiful
Infinite, blessed
And full of grace

Gravitational Waves (well kind of)!

Be the ray that escapes
The wave that moves out
Contracting; Expanding
Without little doubt
That when the world seems so pressing
When you’re feeling sucked in
That the ripple to freedom
Is the way that you win

Crêpe Expectations

Crêpe expectations
Today – that’s for sure
Tossing pancakes up high
Before they land on the floor!

Now!

Dream a little dream
Have a goal or even two
Consider aims along the way
Hold aspirations true

But always keep your feet firm
In the present to enjoy
The now as it unfolds each day
No distraction or decoy

For its now, this very minute
Where certainty is sure
The freshest memory in your mind
That will pave the way to more

So plan, yes do, whole-heartedly
And look ahead with glee
And don’t forget to love your ‘now’
For it too is your “me”

Normality – A Rambling

What is normality
But an illusion
Shared by many
Yet not by all
A manipulation
Of reality
Of A reality
Scattered amongst equals
With significance
Accepted
Not questioned
Except by
One

But then isn’t it that one
That makes normal possible
Like a line of straightness
Where the line
Only seems straight
Only survives
As a result of the kink
A curve
Where without that bend
There would be
No straight
Nothing more

And so too without abnormality
Without that ‘one ‘
Can there be normal?
Without delusion
Can reality prevail?
Without the mask
What really is there
The possibilities
Swimming in a sea
An ocean
Of possibilities
On the spectrums of odd
Weighed in the scales of reason

Lives being lived
Unfolding in the rainbow
The wavelengths of colour
Each as precious as the next
Refracted through a prism
To bend light
Curving whiteness
To bring brilliance
All realities warped
In hues; in shades
Of colour
For maybe everything is normal
Or maybe normality just doesn’t exist

Winter’s Kiss

Winter arrived
Littering the landscape
In a delicate dusting of desiccated coconut
That smooched innocently with nature
A lacklustre covering of snow
Yet still beautiful
Powdering the world in sifted icing
As she kissed the Earth
In a spectacle to behold

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!

Source: HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!

A time to reflect and consider
To remember, laugh and cry
To look back with kind regard and thought
On the year that’s just gone by.

The good times and the triumphs
The times we’d best forget
The happiness we shared and cherished
As well as sadness and regrets.

A time to forgive and be forgiven
A time to embrace the new
To put down the angst and turn to hope
With aspirations to imbue

A time to turn a corner
To draw a line down in the sand
To finally see and face our dreams
And take them by the hand

A time to look ahead again
A chance to take up the cup
Of opportunity and promise
As a New Year opens up.

Christmas Limbo

We’re in the Chrimbo limbo
And don’t know what to do
Three days between festivities
That leave us in a stew
For nothing is quite normal
Yet neither is it odd
Just some how out of sorts m’thinks
Before we give a nod
To the new year approaching
And then if all goes well
Nothing will be the same again
As on old Lang Syne’s bell
We’ll herald in a new year
And with it a new me
With promises we’ll never keep
At least past January
By which time we’ll be saying
“How fast the time now goes”
Wishing away the wetter months
Perhaps slipping in snow
And yearning for the summer
The hotter days of fun
Until we limber up again
In the Christmas home run
So for now in Christmas limbo
Not knowing what to do
Perhaps just chill, enjoy the ride
And raise a glass or two!

Happy New Year!
