Birds Fly In

Birds Fly In ~ Illustration by Patrice

Birds fly in, then fly out
Seeds are there, then gone
They’re out.

I’m sitting here
Watching, watching
All the goings-on
Go about. 

They don’t know
I’m here 
They don’t care
About my life, my goings-on. 

Cause they have
Their own life to live
Like sing, find seeds  
Fly about.

Do I

Do I ~ Pastel Art by Patrice

Do I do it 
Leave it alone?

The question is asked
I know 
The decision to be made
The answer given 
My choice
My choice alone.

Which way
Will I go 
Which one will I leave
All alone?

Time Bends

Time bends

Hours drip away 
In all places of the world 
The universe 
Galaxies swirling. 

Time bends

Somewhere it’s tomorrow 
Is gone 
It’s already been. 

Then there’s 
Can we go back 
See it happen, happen 
All over again? 

Time bends

This Day

January 16, 2023

I’ve written 2-3 writings, poems for this day.  
This day I’ve been dreading since last December.

Ceile, our beloved Rottweiler has been very sick
and we knew this day would come.

She would have ‘Good Days’ eat, chase, her ‘Green Ball’ wag, her tail and cuddle on the sofa. Then there would be ‘Bad Days’ She wouldn’t eat, diarrhoea, puke after drinking too much water from the prednisone she was taking.
We knew, knew our time was limited and short.
Too many ‘Bad Days’ and it’s all over.

Yesterday, we accepted that there was no time left. 

None of the writings I wrote for this sad day, say how I feel as much as
this that I wrote many years ago to a friend who had just lost her beloved mastiff.
Please read, think of those who you have lost, hug those still with you
and send your best
to our Ceile for the journey she’s about to begin.

Peace and Love

Ceile and her Pink Lady

The bond of Love
We share
Can never be broken
The memory
One so loved
Will never be

Some Days

Some days are sad
In remembering the past
The heartache and anguish
Seems to last and last.

You know years have passed
You know all have moved on
Yet still some days are hard
The sadness seems to go
On and on.
