Christmas heroes

Wonderful words to remind us of those very special people who serve…

The outback cop on duty
No rest on Christmas Day
Childhood Christmas memories
Seem so far away
Waves on sandy beaches
Backyard crickets happy sound
Replaced by heat and dust
Miles of burnt desert ground

The soldier stands on guard
Watches planes rush through the skies
Wishes she was on one
Brings tears to her eyes
Later she will Skype
Watch her kids show off their toys
Won’t get to hold and hug them
Or tuck in bed her boys

The doctor and the nurse
In emergency they stand
Wait for the paramedics
Not the Christmas Day they planned
Will work hard to make sure
That in every coming year
This days not remembered
For losing someone dear

So at your Christmas table
Raise a glass drink a toast
To all those that are working
So you can have a peaceful roast

LOVERS DEATH

Words can’t express how much her words mean to me

Ángel Wings Poetry

lovers Dancing
A Painfully slow
Death
As reapers hover
Sprinkling Cancerous
Spores
Undoing promises
That do not bode well

Alas
What it has become
Leaves you baffled
Confused
Shooting venomous
Words that sting
Apocalyptic Actions
That wound
Killing
What’s left
of a love bereft
Weakness
Is what he
Begets
Failure
To give you
Respect
Sum it all up
This love
Is dead

image

But
In that moment
The gossamer veil
Lifts
You have sight
Zombie reactions
No longer
Cripple your life

Lightning strikes
A thunderous bolt
You are no longer
Someone’s enough
Realizing
Were never enough
But
What a glorious feeling
When
You don’t give a fuck
Because
Loving yourself
Is more than enough

Ode to Earth Day…

Simple words that say so much

Words across the Oceans

MOTHER NATURE

To feel, breathe and connect

With the natural energy

Surrounding us

Brings an inner peace

That is indescribable…

Mother Nature is a quiet magic

That we so often take for granted

Getting caught up in

The ‘hustle and bustle’ of the modern world

But when we do… go and say hello

She embraces us purely, every time!

Ode to Marcus

A beautiful tribute to a beautiful soul. Be sure to check out the original post and more on the Debra’s blog

Words across the Oceans

  

ODE to MARCUS

Time has come

And time has gone

But throughout moments in my days

You enter my mind…

.

I only got to know you briefly

Across the Oceans: Online

But in that time

You have touched me deeply…

.

 Your beautiful soul shone so brightly

Making us laugh out loud daily

Always there with your huge heart

Lifting and supporting without judgment…

.

I regret not coming to see you whilst away on my trip

My heart goes out to your Lady Wolf and I hope that she is doing ok

I miss your words terrible

But I found a message from you on Tumblr

Just the other day: which made me smile…

.

Wherever you are now

My dear friend: HATFM

Know that you will be forever loved

And held in our hearts forever

Until we connect again!

#PoetryInMotion ~ Wish Me Luck…

Words across the Oceans

IMG_2194

WISH ME LUCK

Running
Into the forest I flee
Looking for a connection
Searching for a peace…

No more living
In a dream like state
I need to get back to reality
And find the space I seek…

Time is of the essence
As LIFE is going by: fast
No more
Wasting to be done…

Finally reaching the edge
I breathe in the precious aroma
Of the moment now
And feel free…

Looking forward only –
Hope will be my compass
Conscious is my guide
Wish me luck in Future-land!
