Gossamer memories – a poem

If there is one thing I would never wish on anyone, it’s this – cognitive decline and the loss of memory and judgment.

May such heartbreak never visit you…
Wishing you joy this festive season!

Not the happiest poem in the world…

I had promised that the next poem would be a joyous one, but there’s so much happening in the world that doesn’t make for happy words.
I hope to sit in my little garden tomorrow and be inspired to write about hope and beauty and courage and contentment. Until then, here’s today’s poem:

May heartbreak never visit you…
Wishing you joy!

The littlest things remind me of you – a Poem

Grief is forever. It doesn’t go away; it becomes a part of you, step for step, breath for breath.

Jandy Nelson, The Sky Is Everywhere

Grief is weakness and strength; an ending and a beginning; a shattering and an anchoring; it is a journey without a predeterminable destination.

Wishing everyone happiness and light
and ending with a promise that the next post will be a joyous one…

Healing #Haikus

These Haikus are about the power of Nature to help us find solace in a world gone crazy.

Heartsick, I espy
golden rays through lush foliage
…Spring’s cure for angst

– and later that day –

Moonlight, clouds, and stars…
such flirts – shimmying expertly
to ancient rhythms

Hurt & Heart – a poem

Memories – good and bad – serve a purpose.
They remind us of times when things were beautiful and we had hope
and they warn us of what could go wrong despite the best intentions in the world.

Here’s a poem about that…

I house memories in my heart
It’s overflowing with some
I should throw away
to make space for ones
that bring me joy
but how do I measure joy
if not against the pain
of heartbreak & angst?
You left but I cling
by a thread I will not cut

I will forgive but not forget…

Continuing the saga of body parts and #Haiku

Sounds sinister, doesn’t it?
Well, I hope you find the following Haikus anything but ominous…

I resolve to love
changing shapes and colors of
my Autumn body

The pitter patter
of a lonely cloud’s anguish
a broken heart heals
