Today an Angel was born
in hope transformed
from woman and daughter
to memories

Hollow arms, empty
crave for her warmth
they stretch, defeated
in search of her presence

Patches of laughter
echo through silence
in light and shadow
her energy is captured

Forever young
Forever loved

For Nancy and Paul, who lost their daughter Heather.
She is now reunited with her brother Declan.
Much love,

Lost in memories
I am so sorry
that you could not love
my loved ones more
the ones I care about too
whether two or four legged
the ones I can’t
I won’t
live without

You were part of my life
but day by day
you drove me a little bit further away
until you could no longer reach me
until I shut down, and out
slammed the doors to my heart
shut tight
to stop the bleeding

I care about you still
but can not share my life
with you anymore
I need more
I am more
than what you want me to be
let me be
I need to be

I wrote this for Writing 101: Serially Lost: Today, write about a loss. The twist: make this the first post in a three-post series.

Sands of Time


time trickles softly

like sand glides through desert in

neverending dunes

trust and pride you have

trodden with feet of blindness

now bent ’till broken

Hopes, dreams and byways



and so many dreams

I have for you, sweetheart

your road is paved

with solid bricks

in graceful patters

quick, but with imagination

relaxed, yet with passion

and always forward


The road you follow now

has too many curves

to my liking



even dead ends

but tastes differ

you sense life

and feel it your way


I let go of your hand

wave and smile at you

and watch while you take

a different path

with head held high

a byway

that in time

will surely become

your highway

Word of 2014: Enough


it’s enough

dear friends

absolutely enough

I have enough

plain enough

I have had enough

of violence


of more




it’s enough

more than enough

be happy

with who you are

and remember


is good enough


are good enough!



In 2014 my thoughts and actions will be guided by ENOUGH. Taking a step back in stead of rushing headlong into the madness of the daily stress-race. Taking a moment to enjoy what we have and live in that moment. Because it truly is enough.

Which word will you choose?

Come, tell me! 🙂

Wishing you all a happy New Year, with enough…


More words of 2014:

  • Joy & Hope

Rest In Peace, Mr. Nelson Mandela



December 5th, 2013


his long walk on earth

has finally ended

Nelson Mandela

now lingers in heaven

and it is up to us

to you and me

to follow in his footsteps

to continue

find new ways

and lead

over the rim

to freedom


Rest in Peace

Soul Mates


she was more

than she could ever be

taller than life

for his love

lifted her

yet humbled

in gratitude



into wholeness,

souls met
