Sweet will-o'-the-wisp
Blazing bright tonight

For my niece who was married this weekend

i am not one for making bets
but i bet your heart skipped too
when my soul recognized you

Here I sit at the end of eve
Hearing voices sing
Hallelujah !
For the Lord has brought me
thus far
Helping me along life's journey
To greet another new year
With blessings to give
Looking back I begin to see the long journey
I have walked to here
The Lord who thus far has helped me
will help me all my journey through
So I lift my small voice
in praise to thee
For I know thy hand carries
me to travel far.

In this New year to come,I know God continues to see me through
in my journey far.

In my prison of darkness
that shackles my soul
Where I'm often alone
inside my depressed mind
My wings unfold
Lifting me unto the heart
of humanity
Inside the sorrow
As the gate to my prison opens
into the heart of the universe
Helping me to see the beauty
Beyond the darkness
that covers me
Setting my troubled soul free
to fly inside my tortured mind
Where someday I'll grace
the heavenly skies
Upon the dreams
in my mind.

Older write,still the words have meaning.
These words still speak to me
as I Struggle everyday
to be free.

Restless poet is the breed inside of me
Wandering soul
Carrying words within myself
Seeking to be whole
Writing thoughts along the endless trail
On each stepping stone
Everywhere
Words of emotions
flow from my soul
Filling up the night sky with
so many woes
Under the moon with a mystical tune
I hum my words inside my soul
Leaving specks of myself
as I journey through

Just an old hippy
from way back in the sixties
Strumming her heart away
I'm a restless poet
with words and thoughts
I've gathered along the road
To be expressed within these days
Leaving pieces of my heart
along the way
Just droplets of words that lingered
for years
Inside an old hippies soul.

Just words of me ;-]

Rains pouring down
bringing coldness again
Like the heart of heaven weeps
for man
Winds blowing through the trees into the darkness
of the unseen
Invisible as the winds scream
Cold torrent night
Locked away inside my house
Listening to the rain
Wishing I could be somewhere else
Like on a warm island
Swimming in the sea
Under the beautiful blue sky
as the clouds flow by
In my dreams,I'm there
resting inside my imagination

Cold freeze in the morning light
As white snow breathes upon the ground
All frozen without a sound
Silence
No birds
Ice laying on the lawn
of white
Crystal clear as though the ground disappeared

So cold here
Snow and ice mixed
Making roads terrible

A single flower in the
darkness grows
Struggling beneath
the shadows
Among the jagged rocks
Where harsh winds blow
Beaten by life
Petals torn
Wilted and alone
Seeking light
To glimmer through the darkest nights
Raising it petals to the sun
once more
Feeling life
As the sun burst the shadows aside
The power of light turning
the dark to a sun filled morning
As the clouds roll by renewing it's life
The little flower bends beneath the winds
Among the rocks in the crevices
Where life began in the shadows
Which is where it's strength
came from
As the harsh winds blowed inside the shadows
of life
The little flower grew in darkness
filled with light inside
Somehow it knew outside the shadows
the sun shined.

Written a few year ago.

never apologize for the way
on your darkest of days
you may enter a phase
that feels a lot like
gravitational
collapse
you are an interstellar being
these broken parts of you
are star-glowing matter
the pieces have a path
they’ll always
gravitate
back
and when they do... their
new density will display
an even greater array
of the Light
That is
You
embrace your fragility
it holds your Power
to  t r a n s f o r m
..the same divine
ability is how a
nebula is
born

Note The Behaviour Of The
Seasons And Their Seams
As They Mimic And Perform
In Each Others Scenes
As They Slip In A Whisper
Or Maybe They Mime
In Search Of A Moment
To Extend Their Time

When Standing In The Sunshine
Not Sheltering In The Rain
Your Not Looking For Excuses
Or Trying To Explain
Its Your Breath In The Morning
That's Flowing In The Light
You've Blown Away The Cob-
Webs
Dispensing With The Night
