with brush strokes light as feathers
I want to tell you about beauty
in a newly woken sky;
In a bird feeding his young.
In a woman’s graceful stretching,
her fingertips reaching high, just because.
Of glowing heather gracing my wall;
Caught by an artist with loving heart.
About the soft morning mist on the ground,
the neighbourhood slowly waking up.
Dogs taking humans for a walk –
or is it the other way around?
About the stillness and grandeur of trees
that grace the territory;
Teaching us not to rush,
to respect nature and all therein.
With softest colours showing us gratitude,
gratefulness to Be, alive.
To love, most important of all.
who seen only dark shades so far.

White Doves and Rowan Tree
Circling above, are
Snow White Doves
against cerulean sky.
Against red Rowan berries,
Tree so huge against the heavens.
How bravely they trust their wings,
Their precious gifts.
I dream my spirit would fly
with the confidence of their wings..
So I pack a little suitcase
With all courage I can find
and take to the air.
Suddenly I think of impossibility;
And the bag spills courage to the ground.
The birds perch on a rooftop so near,
telling me not to give up, how sweet.
I pack more courage and just go,
Not thinking at all.
This time I lasted a long while,
what glory and joy
To soar for a while and know,
just feel, fear and weight dropping off.
I will practice this soaring each day,
The white doves promised to help.
You are welcome to join should you wish.
