My Hopes, Memories and Dreams




in search of the key

we dip into pockets

near and far

yet to discover

the illusive freedom

exists within


Thanks to Sara Fryd for the inspiration !

    • And for some that day take longer to come than others…sometimes never acutally realised. How sad that would be, to remain on an endless search for something that is actually so close and accessible. Hmm…

  4. Oh how sweet you are. Who’s beautiful chocolate eyes? So much meaning with so few words. A master’s trait.

    • My eldest daughter’s beautiful chocolate eyes. When she was little I’d say “Can I steal a chocolate ?” and pretend to snatch one of her eyes…she’d chuckle along with me.

  6. You had it pretty rough growing up, Colleen.
    That you’ve been able to maintain your
    keen sense of honest and natural femininity
    deserves a plus in my book. Good for you!

    Under the radar and over my head,
    your search goes on with my blessing.
    Everything comes with a price, and
    freedom is no exception. Weigh the costs
    and keep your balance, and you’ll be fine.

    I wish and yours the best of luck!
    Sincerely, Uncle Tree
