Some Things Are Hard

Some things are hard to remember.
They crush the spirit, they crush the soul.
We’ll never know what would have happened
If they never had been told.

Muster pass, remember this
They are not your whole world
Only a small part of it.
The beauty of the rest will still unfold.

Golden Maserati

May 27, 2015

We were walking along the road
In the quiet dusky light
Robins sang, frogs croaked
In the evening with delight.

When we heard
The roar of a mighty engine
Back beyond the curve
Still far, far out of sight.

The roar sped nearer
Louder, round the corner
Charging cross the country road
A blaze of gold appeared in our sight.

Pistons pounding, wheels spinning
A golden Maserati flashed by
Neighbour’s chickens squawked in horror
Our dog cringed, fearing for his life.

My husband muttered
Something like
“A idiot racing a golden Maserati
On a country road tonight”.

He was gone in a second
Like a flash of golden light
No regard for any other
Driving his golden Maserati tonight.

Only feeling Maserati power
Roaring by on a quiet night
Driving a golden Maserati reckless
Thru quaint country life.

Too fast to see his face
Slumped down with little grace
A flash of golden auto
Flew pass us that night.

A golden Maserati
With a idiot at the wheel
Roared by us
Disappearing out of sight.

Butterfly

Butterfly

From my window I see you fly
Crossing by

Butterfly

Your beauty is exquisite
Coloured a wondrous earthy brown

Butterfly

Never growing old
Nor flying far away

Butterfly

In winter’s frozen cold
You fly, butterfly

Butterfly

Etched forever in cedar wood
My very own

Butterfly

Thou I imagine one day you will come alive
Flying with other butterflies

Butterfly

To far away places, warm, full of beauty
Butterfly fly

Butterfly

That’s when I’ll say goodbye
To my precious wooden

Butterfly.

Some Dreams

Some dreams are achieved.
Some dreams never see fruition.
Some dreams are dashed.
Some dreams become beautiful only in their demise.

Little Tom Thumb

May 21, 2015

Little Tom Thumb
Has passed away
This I learnt just yesterday.

His brave bold heart ceased to beat
He dropped to the ground
Quietly.

Magnificence reigned from the start
He was the leader
He had the heart.

Raced pass the others
Mane flying, hooves a blur
Into history a giant you see had occurred.

Building begun
Changes made
Thoughts on what will be clear
Beyond the haze.

Turn to the right side of life
Feel strength in midst of strife
Dedicate your life to those that need.

Feel life breathe.
