Love Poem

There was you and there was me

And there were layers of love

Between the sky and the sea

 

Perpetually blue

with the tint of golden hues

It scattered on earth

Illogical and free

 

There was you and there was me

And there were layers of love

Between the sky and the sea.

Quarantined Friday

It seems like ages
but there used to be a time
when you wished
that you could be home
on a Friday…
now that the days have blended together
and time has lost some of its essence
Friday poses to be just another day,
when in fact it is still nothing but…
yes, we are tired of being home
yes, we wonder how it will be to have coffee
outside these four walls
yes, We want to Hug our friends
not smile at them across screens…
but we are safe
and continue to be
while we are here
we are keeping our healthcare and essential workers safe
by maintaining the distance
we are sipping our wine
and reading our books
and binge watching our favorite shows
and being grateful
for being healthy…
and we are partying in our pajamas
dancing and talking,
with our loved ones at home
and connecting where it matters…
in the matters of the heart…
this too shall pass,
and in days to come,
when we are old,
we will look back at this time fondly
and remember quarantined Fridays
with the ones we loved

but until then

Happy and Healthy Friday to all of you!

Shadows of my dreams

The shadows of my dreams

follow me

laying in the corners of my mind

it filters into my day

like a drifting daydream

made colourful with my imagination

of a world beyond my conscious realm

that plays with my thoughts…

like butterflies following sunshine

The shadows of my dreams…

follow me

Happy World Poetry Day 2020 – We need words

We need words…
now more than ever
that bring us together
we need poetry and poets
and story tellers and artists
who weave tales
of hope, love, kindness and resilience
that we as mankind need to remember
during these uncertain and chaotic times
we need words
now more than ever…

Share what made you smile today…

Hello Everyone,

Amidst these dark times, it’s hard to remember things that still make us smile…but I feel now more than ever we should share some positivity…I was in a funk today, nervous about what’s going on around the world having my family scattered all over…but then I noticed my son drawing (read scribbling) for the first time and it made me smile… all the little things like this are precious…I would love to hear what made you smile today in the comment section! Let’s keep looking for that rainbow behind the clouds!

Paint

Paint your dreams on the sky

with gentle strokes of the breeze

that caress your mind…

let your thoughts splatter,

with the wild brush of unrestrained emotions,

Open like the blue vastness above you,

let your heart fold around the curvature of the earth,

spread your love …

Paint your dreams on the sky.
