Where Doves, Honey-birds and Fairy-Bells Dwell


This sunny day is dawning
as the honey-birds are calling
to cooing doves above in the myrtle trees,
so would you believe
this scene where the fairy-bells bloom,
is the room,
that is still the space
where an empty nest rests in place.


The Empty Nest

On A Sunny Day You Quietly Say.........


Whilst standing in the street
on a sunny day, you quietly say
"I just wanted to thank you
for being a friend
in the times when you were a friend."

Finding Another Note

Learn to live with those who love you.

This was another hand-written note 
that I found in an old book on an old table

Hearing You Come Through

I weep for the lost times
the forgotten rhymes
the way 'beyond the line' times
the place I pray to never go again times,
while healing all the sadness
and crying through the madness,
while wondering why
and knowing now I will never know
and neither will I ever go
to the space and place again.
For now I am with you God
and I have seen the truth
and I will carry the candle light
so in my heart I know
you are my guide in every way
as we stay present in this day.

Cornflower Blue

"Cornflower Blue, deeper than the evening sky
peaceful as a river, bluer than goodbye.
Blue like the diamond when the light shines true,
if love came in colors 
then I'd choose this one for you, Cornflower Blue"

Where The Lilies Live

Down in the dell 
where these openhearted violet leaves dwell
there came to be a blackbird with me.

Her family nests here.
They forage,
eat the apples and sing their songs
as if they knew,
St Francis of Assisi comes here too.
These Italian lilies were never planted:
they just arrived to thrive,
as all the many lilies do, and every friendly bird.
