Adrift


Adrift

boat drifting

Adrift on a sea of possibility

Together always you and me

Tacking into the winds up ahead

A light in our heart no need for dread

An unchartered course we have chosen

Full of unfettered heartfelt emotion

Together we stand the test of time

Without reason nor rhyme

Adrift on a sea of possibility

Together always you and me

If this were our last day on earth

Would we cut to the chase, unearth

The things that are truly important

Skip all the rest as totally redundant

Spend our last moments with friends and lovers

No longer willing to simply hover

Be in the moment not wasting time

Giving our best right down the line

Filling our soul and those we treasure

With warmth and love beyond measure

One last thought filled with the purest of love

Our last moments, time we made good use of.

This is in response to Liza’s dream.

Cherish

It’s easy to forget and sometimes neglect

How important sharing emotion can effect

A positive outcome, lift and upraise

The heart of another, graciously amazed

Words of tenderness, concern, and support

Bring laughter, lightness, sometimes comfort

Although unknown to us at the time

Will be remembered as truly sublime

 

 

Treasure 2

What a delicious treasure life is

Full of games and sometimes bliss

A relaxed morning sleeping late

Or finding adventure we investigate

Early morning sunshine streams

Through the window in sunbeams

Winter weather bringing glistening snow

Children making angels all in a row

Summer with its gracious warm sun

Everyone is up for summertime fun

Gazing up at the heavens starlight

Identifying constellations all night

A warm and heartfelt hug

It fills us up and we feel snug

Wrapped in friendship and love

Everyone’s life should consist of

A tender smile so gently given

So wonderful it feels like heaven

Children’s laughter loud and clear

Fills the heart with fun and cheer

Nothing more special than the gift of time

Winter, Fall, Summer, and Springtime

This family that we have created

Although on occasion separated

Will always most treasured remain.

A faded rose she had become

But instead, happy not glum

Her life had been enriched

By experiences she’d stitched

Together through the fabric of time

Each and everyone so sublime

A scrapbook of fun and games

Embolden by the flames

Of deepest love care and devotion

That surrounded her like an ocean

Filled with memories as precious

Richest jewels and as precocious

A vibrant richness had unfolded

Like bright fireworks exploded

Her time upon the earth was pure

Hence no reason to demure

This life to her had been a gift

Even though it’s passing oh so swift

 

 

 

 

 

Ruell-Up in Flames November Notes

When you have the strength to stand

And you have a plan in hand

With a foundation or a platform

We can weather any storm

So if everything should go up in flames

We shall all the fires tame

Together forever standing

United our arms banding

We’re standing the test of time

Our love lasting for a lifetime

 

 

Witness

Witness

I’ve been in love with gardens forever, often captivated by the beauty found within. My hitherto balcony didn’t allow for such an indulgence, able to grow a few potted plants that brought a modicum of delight was all I could manage.  One day, about a year ago, I joined two gardening groups available on line.  They accepted me and my resultant delight and pleasure indescribable.

The generosity of all involved touching, amazing, unequivocal.  Their love of earth, gardens and flowers unending. Even more astounding than the gardens themselves, was the photographic ability of many.  Daily I witness generosity of spirit as they willingly share the beauty they have created and which surrounds them. Through photographs I witness the changes and growth from groundbreaking to completion humbly sharing in their accomplishment.

Many years ago, I gazed upon a picture of a rose completely enchanted. I stood before this wonder and stared. A picture I had taken myself in my desire to capture it’s lush beauty, it’s essence. The rose was so richly velvet, it’s colour so vibrant it didn’t seem real or possible.  Had the picture been enhanced somehow?  No, my eyes witnessed it’s birth and development, it’s growth from bud to blossom.

We witness many incredible moments in the passage of time,  committing them to memory.  This is but one of many I personally enjoyed.

 

 

Luxury

Luxury

Luxury means different things to different people.  To some, it relates to things such as fine dining, cars, homes, furniture.  To others it is comprised of vacations, warm, welcoming, pampered.  While some luxuriate in a great read or perhaps music that invigorates the soul.  Then there’s the luxury of time and the ability to use it freely for whatever we wish.  What of the luxury of thought?  Or the luxury of freedom? Freedom to be who you want to be, do what you want to do, when you want to do it, with whom you wish to enjoy it!

Luxury whatever the ideal, brings relaxation, happiness, peacefulness to the body and the spirit like a summit reached, or a dream fulfilled.  No matter how large or small the scale, it is attainable, refreshing, and pleasurable.

Some would turn up their nose and yell it is selfish and meager and unimportant and lasts momentarily scoffing at the idea.  To those who reach out for the luxury of a pair of shoes, their next meal or a roof over their head, or a warm winter coat, or that last breath, or freedom of speech, it is meaningful and filled with relief, a luxury incomparable.

Most important of all is the luxury of good health with which we are able to partake in life, in simply breathing.
