To yourself

You are not
your insecurities
you are the strength
of the mountains
and the wisdom
of the rivers

You are not
the lad
in distress
You are the dragon
bringing fear
to the hearts
of men

you are everything

So breath your fire
and unleash
your strength
on the world

They will never know
what hit them

My perfect illusion

Dreaming, lazily
I see my past
with more clearity
all my doubts now
answered amply

I can live,
Live without disdain
Lost friends I’ll regain
accepting the occasional mundane

I can read more,
learn more,
Spend my time with greater purpose
Sprinkling fun into drudgery, nothing left to remorse

I can do so much more
So many different ways to create joy galore
Menial tasks needn’t be a chore
Instead i’ll travel and explore

Only now can I see
the failure of my choices
Surrounded by better options, concious concussions

There can be more laughter
With humor, I can be an injector
Mastering quiet,
when others speak I’m the active listener

This leads to a more fulfilling existence
A life of broad acceptance
In which I make a difference
My perfect illusion!

Trees in the distance
a calling from the sea
Seagulls, waves, laughter
Rocky headland
the raging waves
Smashing and diverting
splash, surge and foam
The run of water
up and down, over and under
through rock spills and splits
Seaweed loving the push
pull, twist and turns

Friday Insight – Be grateful

I’m happily enjoying my life’s journey taking one step at a time, grateful for the moments that I had in the past and looking forward for more in the future. Dear lord thanks for giving me a lovely family, supportive friends and this amazing blog where I’m able to share this all.


Be thankful for clouds, earth, stars and moon.
Spiritual goodness and grace of outside.
Grateful for diversity, far and wide.
Kids who respectfully question why.

Be thankful for a keen sense of creativity,
For imagination, and a liveliness to play.
Be thankful for a flexible inclination,
With every single fiber and in every single way.

Be thankful for health, and in the right to be free
Thankful for God’s blessings bestowed on us.
Grateful for the variety of people you can readily be.
Most of all, be thankful for the opportunity to be you.

Have an amazing Friday 😊

Dear Tom

I’m alone these days

So I watch stars

at night

But it’s really hard

to understand how far

they are when

they seem so close

They don’t tip off strangers

They know how to keep secrets


Actually I never really

cared about them

until my only friend Tom


He was a true friend and my

Only companion

I remember the day when

Dad bought him home

It was raining


I grew up with him

We’d run carefree

wander the hills

and kiss the clouds

Night we’d watch

the stars across

the lake.

Tom didn’t really care

about the stars

He just loved to run.


But youth has a way

of slipping away and the sun sets on our fate.

the appointment comes that we

all have to make.

And then the light dwindles and

it moves from the face to the sky.


I see him now

In the Sirius

He’s so bright

Outshining the other stars

His tongue hanging down and

those eyes so blue and full of light.

My boy’s shine will never fade

There he is running as always



You were my best friend
