When

February 26, 2019 at 8:59 am (Poems) (, )

When there is space for my heart to dance
and my breath is a free beat
untethered by realities
I look longingly at rope and regulations that structure and contain
and artificially create my own from candyfloss and impossibility
knowing I will break through immediately
with an imagination that laughs at the absurdity of self-imposed boundaries.

Work

February 23, 2019 at 4:13 am (Poems) ()

Keeps me sane

Keeps me focused

Is not a chore

Brings friendships

Brings laughter

Even through hard times

Is a good reason

To get up and go there

Stops me obsessing

About myself!

Things Change

February 9, 2019 at 10:45 pm (Poems) ()

Things change
Sometimes by imperceptible degrees,
sometimes by external stealth, change
leaps upon us so we cannot find
core strength, and topple.
Sometimes change brings light, taking us to a new place, beyond cloying comfort, thrilling us with cleansing alarm.
How ever brittle our reflections
the face of change remains unaltered:
challenging our resistance, creasing
our gentle flesh through smiles and tears.

I am your potential and you are mine, one orbiting the other, offering possibility.
And all the time, change watches, smug in the knowledge it will always snag the main role, no matter what our human dedication.
