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

Happy Bus

happy bus

is a wet soggy day

Umpteen puddles to splash

Hot steaming coffee

Bright coloured flowers

Huge smiles of faces

It’s a Happy Bus day

The forecast is promising

Warmer weather on its way

Happy looking people

On a grey damp day

Music in my ears

Chocolate in my hand

I feel very happy

The smiles are free

So glad that most are on

The Happy Bus today.

The Hanged Man

Today’s Napowrimo prompt was to pick a card and write a poem. So I shuffled my Tarot cards and drew

The Hanged Man.

the hanged man

This tarot card I have chosen

You hang upside down

You hang from one leg

How tiring it must be

.

Unable to help yourself

Stuck, waiting, dangling in time

Will the problem ever pass

The one you have no energy for

.

You meditate, eyes staring, suspended

Discovering the resolution

Patience, wisdom and optimism

You are free once again.

Grumpy Bus

Oh the smiles where did they go

I’ve given lots of mine away

I smiled at everyone today

Trying to turn their scowls

Into something much nicer to look at

And what do I get in return

The Grumpy bus

Hoards of people, following the crowd

Unable to turn their downward face

Into something smiling

And how do they feel

Miserable

And me

I smile, I’m happy

They can keep the grumpy bus

I know it must be expensive

In time and energy

To stay on the grumpy bus

Where as a smile

Is FREE

100

One hundred poems,

One hundred words

One hundred stories

to share with the world

 

One hundred moments

One hundred thoughts

One hundred pains

which I shared with you all

 

From spiders and snails

to secrets and lies

Chimneys and legends

Conversations run wild

 

Shared on paper

shared in speech

shared by the internet

for all to reach

 

Every word written

My soul is set free

my life changes course

in one hundred poems

 

Suspended in water

Suspended in water

tiny fluttering of fins

you work so hard to remain

Motionless

 

You dart, twist and turn

scoot between rocks

Chase one anthers to

entertain

 

Floating in the bubbles

created by the pump

I see you bask, do they

Tickle?

 

I come to your tank

you come to greet me

are you looking at me

the way i’m looking at you

 

You are not free

held in a tank

I am not free

bound to a house

 

I am thankful for your serenity

you give me peace

you capture me, mesmerize me

I thank you

 

 

Free as a bird

Cage door opens

bird perches on the edge

Unsure of whats outside

of the bars of the cage

 

Hesitantly,launches

bird flies fast and high

landing high in a tree

Bird is free

 

I want to be, Free as a bird

to choose what I do

When I have a holiday

Take a break for lunch

 

Not to be on the hamster wheel

Not to be dictated too

Self sufficient, live my life

As free as a bird, not locked in a cage
