Flood Ravaged Queensland

broken waters
from river banks swollen
bore down upon humanity
…unleashing with fury
an urban tsunami

a mother’s heart wrenched
her love denied
for an infant snatched
stolen
by a force indiscriminate
…screams turn to whispers

see arms extended
on roof tops, hopeful
to bodies floating
life sucked upstream
…another tragedy
another helpless victim

the grief of Queensland
sunk in the psyche
of a nation, stoic
determindly dedicating
tear stained pages
to heroic tales
of
heartache
….and rebirth

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


A Mother’s Voyage

dancing-water-spirits_2143105_sq_thumb_mGiggles of innocence
Bubbling with love
Contagiously foaming
Frothing
…Swirling
Swept up in the swell
of motherly joy

Enter predestined passions
A professional calling
Awash in a whirlpool
Intensity whirring
Riding the waves
of growth and fulfillment

Adrenaline rises
Caught in the rip
of responsibility
Whipped up by moonlight
Madness
Nocturnal drowning
In muddied roles

Calm breaks
Momentary stillness descends
Pressure rising and falling
And rising
…And falling

Silence stems the flow
Providing the compass
to temporary floating
Dreaming
Hoping

Til the dawn tide
Surges
At the birth of the Sun
