Poem of the Week


As I close my eyes,
I pray for just one moment to forget who I am.
As I close my eyes,
I become as insubstantial as an autumn breeze.
As I close my eyes,
I learn to soar and swoop, taught by the birds themselves.
As I close my eyes,
I become an insignificant drop of newly formed dew.
As I close my eyes,
I melt into the earth and feel the life within.
As I close my eyes,
I become one with the slow pounding heartbeat of Mother Earth.
As I close my eyes,
My pain dissolves,
Drawn out by the hands of love.

Poem of the Week - Last Week


Fingertips trickle,
Tickling, flowing.
Laughter babbles,
Gurgling, blowing.
Happiness hatches,
Blooming, growing.
Huggles wrapping,
Warming glowing.

Taken from my second book, A Little Bit of Light and Dark.

Poem of the Week - 2 Weeks Ago

New Year

Welcome one, welcome all,
Take a wander through my hall.

Take my hand and come with me,
I will show you what's to see.

A forest here, a mountain there,
I hope to create something rare.

A glimpse at love and life serene,
A look at war and a dramatic Queen.

Counting ripples across a pond,
I hope to create a lasting bond.

Some come with me,
And you will see,
Some amazing things,
And what life brings.
