Steps

IMG_0566

Steps stretch high in the air

Two dragon feet waot at the bottom

Covered in gold, twinkle in the light

I must raise the energy to tackle the steps

Each one taken slowly in the midday sun

People stop, take breath, look upwards

I fill my lungs with air

Steadily move forwards

My legs ache, my heart beats rapidly

The end is in sight

The temple looks down on me

The dragons face smiles

Encrusted in tiny golden mirrors

Brightly coloured glass

Small ceramic tiles

They capture the sun

Reflecting the light, Shining brightly

I look down the steps,

Such a long distance

And wonder, will it be MacDonald’s for tea?

 

 

 

Time to live

The last few weeks have been a real challenge.  Its been hard to keep positive, keep the smile glued to my face, write nice happy postivie blogs and not dwell on the worries that have almost consumed me. Today I got the 2 words I needed to hear more than I LOVE YOU. they are the words that mean a million dollars to me, that will make me live my life. These 2 little words are ALL CLEAR. I am thankful and breath a sigh of relief.

Time ticked slowly

hours blurred together

days an eternity

sun was dull

sky milky blue

colours drained.

Time crawled along

outward smile fading

inside pain of worry

thoughts glued together

seperation impossible

my life drained.

Time stopped

just for a moment

news delivered

I held my breath

All Clear

lifted my mood

smile restored

colours are bright

Time to live.

Heads in a Spin

Heads in a spin

is it inside out

or outside in

or upside down

 

I’d like to get off

this mad roundabout

just for a while

take a break

 

Heads in a spin

I need to think smart

out of the box

make my life easier

 

Going to take it slowly

not get in a fluster

take a step back, Breath deeply

and change the way I think

 

 

Human being or Human Doing

I am a ‘Human doing’
I am on the hamsters wheel
Day in day out up for work,
Rushing here, and there.
.
There are a couple of variations,
Shall I walk or take the car.
Sandwich or salad for lunch
Oh the humdrum of a Human doing.
.
 In fact I am a Human being
I am living for every day
I’m getting off the hamsters wheel
No more rushing for me.
.
Read a book, glass of wine
Potter in the garden
Visit all those places I desire
Take my time there is no hurrying.
.
I want to take it easy
I want to take it slowly
Enjoy every single second of my time
For I am a Human being not a Human doing

 

Live for the moment

We live our lives in the fast lane, our children’s lives seem to stretch out such a long way, just as our own had done. Before we know it time has flown along. We make sure we are pleasing as many as we can as often as we can. I know for me I have come to realize that I must please myself. To slow down, to not dash around, for the things I don’t have time for today will most likely still be there tomorrow.

I’m going to try and live for the moment, not live in the past or worry about the future. Or at least give it a go.

Live for the Moment

Does time fly when we are having fun?  As a child it seems to fly

We want our school days to go fast and our weekends to go slowly

And our holidays to almost stop as we revel in our fun.

Yes it flies when we were having fun.

.

As they say time waits for no one, we watch our children grow so fast

We rush around working and building our lives.

Our children finish school and college and start working

Before we know it they are married with children of their own. Why didn’t time wait?

.

How often are we aware that times run out? Is it when we look in the mirror?

Who is the face that’s looking at me? When did those lines appear?

I’m stopping time now; I’m getting right off this fast world.

I’m going the smell the roses, see the colours and live for the moment.
