Thoughts

Trembling her way
To bed
Focusing on tiny steps
Maintain balance

Mind over life-

Racing away
With thoughts, new
Sleep eludes
Her

Thoughts over life-

Becoming light of day

A Daisy For Robin

Jump on that bicycle
Ride for your life,
Adventures are waiting.
Pick you a bouquet,
A daisy for your lifetime.

Jump on that bicycle
Laughter runs your  life,
Belly laughs and tears.
Arrange the bouquet well,
A daisy for your lifetime.

Jump on that bicycle
Tears fall like rain,
Hurt until you're numb.
Smell the bouquet,
A daisy for your lifetime.

Jump off that bicycle
Breath comes seeping out,
Exist no more.
Watch the bouquet wilt, die,
A daisy for your lifetime.

Mindfulness

Sit still
when
words fail
you.

Relax, quite,
when
silence surrounds
you.

Ignore sounds
when
blank inside
you.

No thought
when
muse enters
you.

Pay attention
when
writing overtakes
you.

Rain

Truth, like the wind
A fleeting moment in time
Believe in the rain that follows
Would the wound heal in the summer sun?

A bluebird still sings
A melody carried forth in the day
When the sun springs forth with healing rays
The heart mends, truth sank in, going forth on a rainbow.
