New Year Blessings

When I finally took the plunge and began blogging I could not have envisaged how much joy all the items I posted and read would have brought me and how much they have expanded my world.

So I would like to express my appreciation to everyone, valued followers and single visitors, who have taken the time to look, read and/or comment on my contributions and to wish you all the Very Best of Moments Always.

Wheel Legacy

“Wheels! What d’ya think?”
“Hmmm? Different.”
“It’s that alright!”
“He left this for me…
…with a note – he’d a great sense of humour.”

For Ellie
Wheel always remember
Times that we spent
In deep contemplation
Of so much dissent
Around we would go
Full circle sometimes
Always the same answer
Want peace?
Quiet the mind.
There’s always a circle
A beginning and an end
Forever they’re fused
So nothing to mend
There’s always some movement
Nothing stands still
Just embrace any contrast
No need for strong will.
Be the axle my friend and just observe the wheel.

“When’s his funeral?”

Autumn…

I awoke again this morning
With the scent of Autumn in the air.
It invigorated my spirit
End of summer’s almost there.

I can feel a building of excitement
As the season’s change again
The urge to gather nuts and stores
Ready for the onslaught
Of winters wind and rain.

I usually feel a sadness
When Summer’s almost done
But I’ve had my fill of sunshine
So now  Autumn…  bring it on!

 

Day 6: The space to write

I like to write in solitude
A space that’s just for me
A space of personal heaven
A space where thoughts run free.

Though sometimes contemplation
Requires mere dictation
So mobile phone
And me alone
Express those thoughts in motion.

But choice for me
Is cup of tea
And silence
Solitude
In any room
That’s anywhere
That’s just my habitude.
