thoughts from my mind to yours

Strings

Strings of invisible ribbons

tie us to an ancient path

of mindless banter…

rounded pebbles and cool water

underneath our feet…

splashing us from echoes of swirls…

and carved scriptures

and feathered inked dipped tips…

fog and sanity,

lost in the unknown places of the mind.

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 Women’s Day – ‘She is a girl’

Don’t clip her wings,

for she wants to fly,

Higher, than the reach of your eyes,

Don’t…

 

Don’t break her courage,

for she dares to dream,

awake from a past full of screams,

Don’t…

 

Don’t put her beneath your notice,

for she is a woman,

a mother , a sister, a daughter, who insists,

on being heard,

Don’t…

 

For as history has shown,

and future will see,

she is beyond grasp,

she is free…

 

She will learn what there is to learn,

and she will fly in the clear blue skies,

She will rise after each fall,

and she will conquer all that lies,

in her path…

 

She will not stay under your oppression,

but please do not torture her with your brutality,

she is stronger than you will ever know,

but set her free, in the name of humanity,

for she is a girl, and she can do everything,

that can possibly be.
