Pebbles in my Pocket

pebbles in my pocket

line in the sand

make that stand

as you search

for closure



draw that line

standing strong and resolute

on a pebble strewn beach

digging deep

until you find them all



then…

facing what awaits

gazing boldly and contemptuously

at that which dares

to cross that line

Why ?

memories of dark days

days of remembering

why?

the loss of belonging

of longing...

why?

A Life Discarded

rolling highways of aging steel

spikes of steel arching upwards

stretching from here to wherever

even possibly infinity



remnants of a life discarded

frantically clinging to rusted spikes

as the blustery wind plucks and rips

desperately trying to set them free



these cast aside fragments

finally break free to fly

but only to be caught

by yet another highway of steel



which proceeds to agonisingly

shred, rip, tear

more of its life away

right down to the marrow

What to Do?

 what to do?

…….

when your heart turns to dust

all you want is just …

yet your blood becomes rust



when in flash

all turns to ash

as your life is slashed



as all you can feel

is cold steel

as you slowly reel



what do you do to survive?

when you only feel alive

after five

Standing Serene

in the waxing and waning of life

as the sea of tranquillity transforms

with the fast approaching misfortunes of poseidon

be that island of serenity in the raging storms

and pounding waves

of life's tempest

…..

just stand serenely

and be

Scenes from my Valley

Back from my travels in my gorgeous valley for awhile …enjoying the scenery with my morning run/walks with Lili and at times T 🙂 … and dragging my MTB for a cycle now and again

Lili in her element … gotta love the pup 🙂

Scenes across the valley in the early morning when we are running trails up the mountain

Love these forest trails …..

till next time …I trust you enjoyed these pictures as much I did taking them … 🙂

Like Water

walk with me

in the woods

dig me a hole

just pour me into it

make me like water

filling every crevice and cranny

and then

…. 

leave me be

Thought for the day …

be that island of serenity in the raging storms
and waves of life's tumultuous ocean

No Limits

rose petals

pressed between blank pages

bleeding out,

total commitment

to the cost

of pressing on

Moving Towards Hope

heard you feeling down

show me where it hurts?

tell me your story

so, I can share your pain



I to have that feeling, again

of pain fast approaching

from where you ask?

from the chasm of my self



let me get up

to hopefully,

walk away from this pain

this is not who I am,



not numb to life,

rather alive

to possibilities
