Gift of wings

We have a short moment in time

A snapshot of measurement

Moments, day’s months and years

To make the most of


Each day lived in, Filled with doing

Sometimes silence and peace

Pondering time, soaking up dreams

Making plans for the future


Regrets left behind, Memories are made

Living for the now not the past

Laughing enjoying each day

Future is inevitable not planned


You filled my life with adventures

Showered me with kindness

Offered me love, shared yourself

You lifted my grief, showed me life


I live in the moment,

I soar with contentment

I fly free with

This gift of wings

Above the Lightning

above the clouds

Below dark cloud

With pockets of white

Turbulent air

Forcefully dropping

Heart in mouth

Lightning flashes

Below us

Fast and bright

Below the dark clouds

Lighting up them up

For a moment

My breath is held.

White clouds appeared

Blue sky all around

Bright moon in the distance

Clear once again

Clock of time

When I blow you my dandelion clock.

Where will you go?

Will you float on the wind and be carried to far away lands

Will you land at my feet and stay where you started life

Will you land on the back of a bird and go to pastures new

Where will you go?

So will you take my dreams with you?

Will they ever come true?

Will my dreams be of adventures in far away lands?

Will my dreams stop at my feet and go no further?

Will my dreams be of pastures new?

Only you my Danelion Seed as I blow you

Only you will know where I will go.
