Sunny side up

 

sunnyside

 

My heart sings as the sun shines

Birds join me as they hear my joy

My smile stretches from ear to ear

The brightness motivates me

My eyes dance in the sunlight

Happiness is all around me

So quietly I focus on all that is here

Each wonder is magnificent

Beautiful and shining

Each day my eggs

Are the sunny side up.

Light of the Russian Doll

Dark is my space

No Sunlight, No twilight,

No moonlight, No starlight.

Hidden away, forgotten.

Silence falls around me

Only my memories

Talk in my head

Nestled in this void

No understanding of time

I once was beautiful

Painted elaborately

The smallest one

At the very heart

In the middle of the layers

Now movement

Gently at first then

Shaking, banging

Suddenly brightness

Searing, exciting

Releasing me from this space

Freedom and identity

My time to shine

As I am brought

Into the light

touch with your eyes

art

Beauty lies within each stroke

each line a definition

vibrant colours combined

softer colours mellow

lines stretch at angles

seeing through the cover

What i see is not what you see

What you have created you love

shows your feeling, your freedom

your energy flow

I look to see what you are showing me

what you are feeling, i embrace

Can i live your life

be what you are?

I cant touch this, kiss this, hold this

I can only touch your work

with my eyes

Awash with emotion

A wash with emotion

Today I am all over the place. Every emotion I can think of consumes me in waves. I know why I just don’t know how to get rid of them all. Today’s tune in my head has been the Proclaimers ‘you broke my heart’.  It seems awfully apt. Not just one person breaking my heart but many. Not just for love, but friendship, kindness and compassion. People are so good at stomping all over you to get what they want. If only they stopped and thought what it does to the other person?

Pain burning raw inside me

My heart is broken

In a thousand different pieces

By too many people

Who just don’t think?

Unrequited love,

I can’t say those words

I can feel it though

It breaks my heart

You stopped the friendship

After all these years

Too busy for me now

Yet I now shed tears

No one to listens

Hold my hand.

You stole my kindness

You broke my heart

Sucked the living daylights

I now fall apart

Can anyone fix me?

Just a little compassion

Is all I ask?

I am fed up of feeling

That my heart is torn

I want it mended

Loved, cared for

I want to laugh again

Surprise

This weekend has been full of the unexpected and surprises. From a small smile that that made me feel warm, a laugh that made me feel alive. The drizzle of rain which woke me up, and the kindness that had made me fell a million dollars. I am not great at saying how I feel. I use the words ‘nice and like’ more than anything else. To me ‘nice and like’ make my heart sing, make me feel warm, connected and feel alive.

That is how I feel today.

Surprise

its not always wrapped up

in beautiful paper and ribbon

yet still its exciting

its not always visible to the eye

yet it brings tears of joy

It can’t always be held

yet it warms my heart

It is always heard

Time is precious

knowledge is shared

Laughter is mutual

Appreciation of kindness shown

Charming, most Simpatico

Stand off

Glued to the ground

Eyes fixed staring

Glances exchanged

Whites of the eyes

Heckles up

Heart beating fast

Frozen to the spot

Stalemate has occurred

Flight or fight

Stillness around

No noise at all

Suddenly changes

Deer takes flight

Leaps forward

Stampeding past me

I lunge for the dog

We both lay panting

Both amazed

The deer has gone

We are still intact

Relieved and amazed
