My Hopes, Memories and Dreams

Skin to Skin

You lend me your softness

so that

I might remember

the gentleness

that resonates

from touch

skin to skin

and back again

A heaving

of dark days

folded in upon itself

unwinding

amongst the tangles

of

eggshell blue

Egyptian cotton

Your tenderness

spills

like liquid silk

creating rapids

along each softened ridge

to refill

my languishing

vessel

 


Riding Rainbows

Little girls
My growing girls
Your sweet giggles of innocence
Still tippy-toe
Across my heart

Hear my whispers
Kissed gently upon you
Listen for their song
That only silence knows

Keep riding rainbows
My Little Girls
For loves, thrills and adventures
Lie eagerly in wait

Stretch yourselves with courage
(And delight !)
Through the clouds that will float by
‘Til your finger tips come to rest
Upon your horizons

And when your dreams and ambitions
Land momentarily
To catch their breath
Toss me a star
And I’ll join you there…


Pierced through the Heart

Your absence strikes

Like a needle

Pierced straight through the heart

Desire

        Loss

Craving

…the inaccessible…

Patterns that bleed

Through each year

Each month

    Week

        Day

            Moment

Of the tapestry

That is

My Childhood Story

Those knots

in my stomach

…Stitched so tight

Leave gaping holes

In my core

My sense of love

for myself

So intrinsically linked

        With

                You


Happy Birthday Chloe !

You lay
Where they placed you

A Bundle of Love

Soft and warm
Against my skin
Exhausted
From the twisting, shoving
Little trooper ! ….
You fought for your place
Here
Relaxed
In the knowing
You were adored

Courage exuded
From every
innocent pore
Each limb
Extended
…little shoots
of solid oak
A strength
transplanted
from your mother’s love

HAPPY 11th Birthday, My Darling Daughter Chloe xoxoxo


Hope

Hope shimmers

Rays of golden thread

Cleverly interwoven

Between bleak greys and browns

Providing enlightenment

To the fabric of life


Disquiet

 

 

 

Your silence is deafening

Not even ear-plugs of disdain

Can quieten the echo

                                                That richochets through my heart

                                                                                        Still…

 

 

 

 


Thank You Life !

Gratitude burnsflame heart

Through every cell

As

I stand here

In awe

of

all the Good

and of all the Abundance

that flows

Lovingly

From the Universe

into God’s vessel

 that

         is

                    My

                               Heart
