Freedom Cancelled #poetry #alzheimers

rose bud bloom decided on its own colour catching random raindrops she danced each spring a calla lily ivory  water cup opens like a scroll makes my heart sing dry dusty petals always winter a ballerina once no longer remembering **** a swan song the seasons changed her dance robbed of her wings  

Water #poetry #drought #Uganda

one blue cup each flows easily through her hands dry river beds laughter’s pure reflection sing song they learn A B Cs * so young to be old internal Acholi’s strength Nile clouds my vision * If I share a handful of their giggles, would you share a handful of precious water? This week’s  WordContinue reading “Water #poetry #drought #Uganda”

Let Your Song Be… #poetry #music

Deep within my soul there flows a faithful song it started as a child like a friend it tagged along Whispers in the leaves and echoes in my head lingers in heart’s dreams where daily it was fed Growing like the falls music’s river rushes on deep within my soul there flows a faithful songContinue reading “Let Your Song Be… #poetry #music”

In Tune #poetry #kindness #devotion

There’s a star in the sky  one you’ll never quite see but it shines all the same perfect voice tuned to “C” * you can’t hear what she sings but the song is her own she calls the disheartened to draw near home * I met this fair one not long ago in a dreamContinue reading “In Tune #poetry #kindness #devotion”

To be Inspired #spiritual #poetry #song

You are strong and beautiful in rites and in the shining of the altar, mounting like the smoke of perfumes to the column of praise. Where you intercede for the people who stretch towards the mirror of light to whom there is praise on high. (Excerpt from”Columba Aspexit”  by Hildegarde von Bingen at All poetry)Continue reading “To be Inspired #spiritual #poetry #song”
