‘Cyber’ me this

20171108-IMG_2544_preview-1.jpg  In this cyberspace world, we have learned we are only limited by the depth and width of our thinking, and our lack of knowledge. We can virtually, be anywhere,  just by closing our eyes.

Funny, it’s always been like that. It’s just so vast now…
We attempt to cram so much information into our minds in a day,
perhaps we have lost trust in our own vision, forgotten how to give surprise and wonder a place in our reality…


Tip Of The Tongue

“the words are on the tip of my tongue”

some live
immersed in what they know of life
in all it’s bright glory.

evading tender compassion,
stuck for what to say…
words stay on the tip of the tongue

bitter tasting
face grimacing
eyes closing from sour.
burning hot breath
running from emotion to find cool, calm waters
in which to rinse the taste away

making sure it goes no deeper into the core,
doesn’t get farther …

than the tip of the tongue.







shut down, closed off,
they can’t be found.

dragged by the slipstream of life
from start to finish,
their silent voice became a wall
do you hear them?

‘for the moment,
nothing matters but the emotions of the heart,

this reality too, will become a recollection of a time,
we shook our heads
were brought to tears’.

reflections …
reminding us we were there …

We close our world around us,
in reflection.

Shalom To A Year – Farewell

in the wake of a year.
rushing to finish, to believe there is a future,
starting… new

late-blooming trees,
tired, birthing nature,
paws, hooves, scales, and feathers

summer fades.
autumn shows with remarkable beauty …
ending in loss

darkness comes closer to light,
as night comes sooner

the moon tosses the sun into a deeper, longer sleep,
while our shadows walk beside us …
so much earlier in the day


‘silk –  fine threads of fibre often woven into cocoons for protection by silkworms.   
 luxurious, resilient and, extremely strong’.

love, a precious strand of silk, weaves through our lives binding hearts together

vulnerable, in the shadow if it’s strength,
we strive to keep it weaving all the time.
