Transition

From her tippy toes to the top of her head

Warmth rising

Flushing her cheeks

To a glorious rosy red

*

Giddiness, joy, elation

Her head did spin

Was it the champagne

Or daily life intoxication

*

A beautiful memory

A face looking at her

Feeling nostalgic

oh dear how young we were

*

Her life of spectacular moments

Tells story upon her beautiful face

Softness, fine lines

Charming, full of grace

*

Youth lays behind

Only in time

Keep dreaming of that life

Passion keeps you in prime

*

A turning point

A time of transition

A time in life

A new definition

*

From light to dark

She will shine inside

It’s grey, Imperfect

Move effortlessly through to the other side

*

Wisdom and experience

As she enters a new phase

Elegance, truth and love

She will continue to navigate life’s maze

*

Welcome to middle age a time of transition. It doesn’t have to be a time of darkness. Stay in the light 💋💋💋

A crushed dream

Tell me words of love

Hold me to you tight

Wrap your warm arms around me

I promise I won’t wriggle or fight

*

Whisper in my ear

How much you love me so

Look into my face with affection

Please don’t let me go

*

Sit me on your knee

Jiggle me up and down

Please don’t stop

But if you do

I promise I won’t cry or frown

*

I’ll be a good girl daddy

Just you wait and see

I’ll eat my veggies, count to ten

If you just stay and keep on loving me

*

Never leave me daddy

You vowed to never leave my side

I will hold your hand everyday

I long to be your joy, your pride

*

You abandoned my daddy

You left me it would seem

You made a promise to me

Your gift to me, a crushed dream

*

Eclipse

Humans have defined wildlife. When did we become our worlds jury?

We declared them wild, a justifiable means to slaughter these gentle beings.

In fairness and compassion our planets wildlife eclipse that of humans.

The human race extinguish beauty.

Animals display beauty, kindness & empathy

They give human second chances. Do we deserve it?

Animals have an insight that surpasses humanities capabilities.

Animals hold an inner compass that shows a tender heart and soul.

We shade in comparison, we grow dim.

We show no remorse.

Anzac Day – we will never forget

Every year I attend dawn service for Anzac Day. Every year the crowd grows. Every year I watch younger generations joining in with the older generations connected in spirit to remember those who fought for our country and lost their lives. Every year I cry for those we lost. On this day, every year I could not be more proud to be Australian.

Courage, tenacity, spirit and mateship was the essence of these heroic men. Many of those were the age of my generation sons.

We will never forget ❣️

I wrote this poem last year ❤️

.

.

25th April 1915

Saw an armada of ships

On the coast line of turkey convene

.

.

Our troops descended upon the shore

Of foreign lands never tread upon before

In the dark of dawn, the wrong destination

Led sadly to the many casualties of war

.

.

Australian and New Zealand Army Corps

Courageous & resilient

Let us not forget those casualties of wars

.

.

Our fathers, our brothers

Sons of proud and sad mothers

Cousins, uncles, our mates

This sad war sealed over 60,000 of our owns fates

.

.

More wars, more departures followed

In solemn silence,

our nation’s grief was swallowed

.

.

25th April 2019

Dawn service

Aussie’s all over the world convene

.

.

We remember there lives 104 years on

Mateship, sacrifice, heroes

The highest honor, the highest award to all of you

Australia bestows

.

.

We will never forget

.

Signed A Proud Australian

The Path

In the beginning the path is smooth

Unencumbered, no burden

Heart and words gave only truth

Time moves on

I beg it slow

Masks removed

Thy wrinkles show

Undulating journey

Now tired and worn

The road gets bumpier

We gaze forlorn

The trail walked

cracks were showing

The lights were on

Highlighting the path of knowing

A pilgrimage

No matter,

parts were broken

Life is an lesson

Learn and live

Leave no words unspoken

Teach me about life

Teach me

Did you feel me move

I’m playing in your tummy

I am coming very soon

I can’t wait to meet you mummy

*

Daddy lay your hands on me

Gently touch mummy’s tummy

I will be your most precious human

irreplaceable, no amount of money

*

I’m coming into your world

I’ll be here very soon

I’ll shine brighter than all the stars

More brilliant than the fullest moon

*

Nine months inside your body

I’ve listened to your heartbeat

dear mummy, one day soon

We are really going to meet

*

I picked myself a mummy

I picked myself a daddy

I found two people to comfort me,

Wipe my button nose, when it’s runny

*

I will be your adored little girl

No longer just a dream

You will look at me with love

Gentle words and eyes agleam

*

I cannot wait to see your face

I cannot wait to feel your touch

Swaddle me with your love

There will never be too much

*

What color will my eyes be

Blue, brown, or green

I’m going to have the prettiest eyes

That you both have ever seen

*

Do you promise to kiss me every night

on my perfect lips and nose,

Do you promise to play with me,

count my little fingers and toes

*

This little piggy,

Daddy can we play

Be by my side always

Never go away

*

I want to have bubble baths

I want to cuddle a teddy bear

but most of all I just want

my mum and dad to always be there

*

Teach me about this thing called life

I want to do everything

Good,

wondrous

learn from all the strife

*

Teach me how to count

Teach me how to cook

Teach me the alphabet

And how to read a book

*

Lets pick flowers

Cuddle for hours

Teach me kindness

So my morals are the finest

*

Teach me to be like you two

*

We will run in puddles

Play in the rain

Eat ice cream

Again and again

*

I have so much to look forward to

I love you both so much

My best day is yet to come

When I feel your loving touch

💗💗💗💗

Magic set free

We once were magic

We set it free

Like a bird in an open cage

It flew away, we let it be

*

*

Where will it go

Where will it land

Can we get it back

Will you again hold my hand

*

*

Fly back to us

through the air

Like magic again

Release my despair

*

*

Look after my heart

Please restore my hurt soul

Let’s learn the same language

Again us together can be whole

*

*

Teach me to trust again

Surrender the evil sting

Catch me if I fall

Make my heart sing

*

*

Let me believe

In your virtuous being

Honourable, righteous

Inspiration foreseeing

*

*

Give me reason to believe

And you will again hold my heart

❤️
