CANDLE

AT THE ENDING OF THE YEAR

The flame dies,
The candle goes out,
Everything has its season,
Things and people come and go,
Without any reason,
We search in vain for something that lasts,
We feel our grief and loss,
As the darkness enfolds us
We open our hearts
And find one true lasting light,
Taking us into the future

A HAPPY NEW YEAR LOVELIES

COME

As 2019 dawns, (well almost!) new paths are there for us to take. Even if only in our minds

Paths stretch
In front of me,
Now I have reached a plain,
Wide open space, a new path calls
“Come now,
The scenes
Here are different, and now, once more,
I will lead you, follow
The voice that calls,
Come child.”

I DREAM TONIGHT (For New Year)

I dream
Tonight of light
As yet unseen to shine
Into the unknown tomorrow
The gate
Opens
To a new world shining with stars
To guide us on our way
Pierce my darkness
Tonight

In dark
I see more light
Of a different kind
Only visible to my soul
I see
With eyes
Wide open to another realm
A shining place to be
Alone I sing
My songs

SWIMMING, for Linda Hill’s Stream of Consciousness Challenge

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Dec. 29/18

I lustened to the radio, and from the first sentence that I heard, I took the word “Swimming.” Here is what came steaight out!

Swimming
When the going is rough
And the rough is in the going
Take me ih tide
To a better place
But first let me ride the waves
Tread on the stones
That sharpen my wit
And strengthen my resolve
And lead me to calmer shores
Where I can eat and enjoy
The fruits of my labour
Lie in the sun
And savour the delights of heaven
