Most of my work is positive and uplifting, but there are times when the sadness seeps through and here, I write whatever emotion is begging to come out. Hello Poetry is my solace and the many beautiful souls here are a most welcome retreat from a sometimes very hectic and everyday life. Thank you to each of you for being here, for sharing, for connecting.
Life is Indeed a blessing!

You don't need a crowd
just be on your side
and feel rightly proud
your life is justified.

every person is a wonder.

I'm taking this pain away from you and from me~~
I'm going to put it somewhere safe
perhaps under that huge oak tree
and place it there because I know the oak is strong
and will trust it to mold this pain
into a gentle, soothing song
and we'll no longer allow it to cause grief and harm~~
for when you plant the pain deep into the earth
and allow the roots of an oak
to give it new birth
the pain gets buried forever and a day
and turns into song and gentle creatures at play--
do you hear the birds chirping,
do you now see?
Those squirrels, those birds all in that tree?
That's our pain, my sweet brother~~
taken away from you and from me
and bringing new life and joy
to our beloved oak tree...

I was talking to my amazing soulsister downunder and she said I should stop carrying all the pain with me of watching my brother die and trying to take on his pain. She suggested I envision burying the pain under a strong, sturdy tree and letting it turn into something positive...this poem is the result of that wonderful suggestion she gave me...
Thank you for caring to read, for your kind thoughts and prayers!

Love is something,
That we all need to share,
Letting others know,
Just how much that we care,
Even if it is expressed,
With a cuddle or a hug,
We all need to catch,
This makes you feel good bug,
Sometimes it brings out,
The biggest of smiles,
The thought of everything,
Being more than worthwhile,
When the words I love you,
Are said to someone dear,
Might be the reassurance,
They needed to hear,
It may pick them up,
When they are feeling low,
Could also be the emotion?
They long for you to show?
For some without love,
There is no point in living,
Love is something,
That we are all capable of giving,
Just let it pour from your heart,
A gift totally free,
Let it fill a bucket for you,
And fill a bucket for me.

xx

Tears cascade through me in secret
I don't want you to see
how very much your pain and suffering
is taking a toll on me.

I hear your cries of agony as pain
wrecks havoc on all of you
and my heart, my whole body reacts
and it seems the pain hits me hard too.

I've begged, I've pleaded and asked the angels
to just reach down and touch your soul
hoping that their angelic touch from above
will help your pain, your misery to just let loose, just go

But even when you have moments so brief
whenever you're not in horrific pain
and we both try to rejoice and exalt in the relief,
the pain finds its way back again

So this leaves me in tears of agony of my own within
for watching you suffer and seeing your fear
is like watching you drown in a murky lake
when no one else is anywhere near--

But I cannot give up, I will NOT leave you
no matter how bad it gets, my dear bro
I'm right here next to you crying my secret tears
that I hope you can't see as your pain (and mine) continues to grow...

Sorry...I just have to try to express it. Sometimes it helps to just let it out, to write it down and then let it lay. I know this is his journey, but it is truly taking its toll on me and all those who love him so dearly. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers and encouragement and for this venue to try to express what's going on. Wishing all here a blessed and very wondrous, healthy life. (((hugs)))

Though April is many weeks away
Mother nature still sings
and gives us beautiful days


And sweet sunshine so warm
and shining skies of blue
And chickadees chirping
Enchanting blissful tunes

wordlessly
i try to live, wishing those
wanting to know
my business
to read my poetry.
oh
i don't
know
if i really want that.
but those
in my real life
who say i've dropped
off
track, off grid, off
the radar
have not
heard words i've said
about where
i am at.   i think i am a genie
in a bottle
or a juicy fly caught
in the internet's web
far from dead, i'm raising
a riot.
you won't find me much
on facebook tho.
i'm too
quiet.

You can use a heavy blindfold
Tie it to a chair
Throw it in a waiting trunk
Take it far from here

Ask it out fishing with you
Miles away from shore
Grab it when its back is turned
Toss it overboard

Hope against hope
That it'll give up the ghost
But love for loves sake
Will always make its way back home

You can climb the highest mountain
Push it off a cliff
Peer over to the bottom
Watch it as it hits

Place it in a rocket
Shoot it to the moon
While it's up in orbit
Pack your stuff and move

Though you would think by now
That by now you'd know
Love will always find a way
To make its way back home

Take it to the wild side of town
Sell it to the gypsies
Whisper underneath your breath
Hope that you don't miss me

When the weather's cooler
Take it to the fair
While in the house of mirrors
Leave its reflection there

Even when it's stranded
Left to shiver in the cold
Love in all its wonder
Will make its way back home
