Finding a way

Patience, I wait for your call

Your text, your rant

I draw breath and smile

The words flow gently

Regardless of your anger

 

Kindness, I give this willingly to you

Despite the fact you hate

They are just words

The kinder I am to you

The less hatred you show.

 

Silence, time for you to speak

I will listen, hear and understand

Your words are important to me

The more you speak, the quieter I am

The calmer you become

 

Love, I give to you in abundance

Through smiles, kind words and patience

You don’t see the love yet,

You take it all from me

In time you will return it

 

You are difficult to me, to yourself

Your anger is portrayed in speech and actions

In time, it dissipates,

In time you hear me again

In time you will find your way

Rise above

Orange sun rose above the horizon

Spread its warm glow across the sky

Smile on the face of a woman

As she started her day

Rise above the words echoed

The squabbling, the shouting the petty remarks

Ignore trivial matters today

No being burdened with unkind words

Stop others concerns weighing her down

Adopt a better attitude than other

She was determined to rise above

Head held high

Gentle smile

Happy lilt in her voice

She was completely resolute

Not to lower herself to their level

Remain focus, and calm

As she rose above the day.

Roller coaster of emotions.

Today I have seen most of life events, they have stretched out in front of me and made my day very rich. From simplicity to complicated, from baby to death. My inspiration came today from a young man not much older than my own son, whose mother had recently died. I watched him, listened to him, sympathized with him and thought what a wonderful person he was and how his mother must have been so proud. It brought a smile to my face and tears to my eyes. Today has been a roller coaster of emotions.

Head pounds, pain is searing

Brain wants to escape

Heart beats rapidly

Body follows suit

Smile remains on my face

Deep breaths to stay calm

It is not  mysadness

It is not my turmoil

I am here to help

You pour out your heart

I listen without sound

I wait, you finish

All I can do is help you

Your mother would have been proud

I am glad to have met you

enriched my life.

And be thankful for me

My life and my future.

Change is swift

Brilliant blue skies

intense searing sun

white fluff clouds

Rhythmic calm sea

wind blows gentley

I close my eyes

peace all around

 

Ominous dark skies

heavy black clouds

The air is stiffling

heat is almost suffocating

Gun grey sea

Crashes with force

Large rain drops fall

intense heavy bursts

no peace now

 

The wind blows quickly in

and out just as fast

calming down again

dark clouds have moved

the sky is a brilliant blue again

the sun shines intensely

the sapphire sea is calm

a gentle roll of the wabes

peace is regained

 

 

Gentle Start

Coffee in hand, steam gently rising

Sat on my favourite chair in the garden

The heat of the sun shines strongly on my face

I close my eyes, its bright yellow

 

There is peace in the air, not a sound to be heard

not a bird, or a bee has woken this early

A cool soft  breeze brushes against my legs

Silent, gentle start to a working day.

Road to a new beginning

At my feet stretches a road

It is the road to a new beginning

I have been here before

This time it is different

.

There are no potholes for me to fall down

There are no tiny roads leading from it

The road ahead doesn’t twist and turn violently

It is more of a gentle meander

.

It feels calm and serene as I walk slowly along it

The sun has come out, it is warmth embraces me

The flowers each side are bright and light up my day

This road feels comfortable and safe

.

I am in charge of my own destiny

This new beginning is no longer scary

I feel at ease as I make take small steps

This time I can almost see the horizon

.

This road to a new beginning

Is exciting and scary at the same time

I know its going to be the best adventure ever

With luck it will be shared with another
