‘Tis the season for things to go bump in the night…
She hid in her house of crumbling brick
Afraid of the daylight, it made her quite sick
Afraid of the noisy, the loud and the brash
Preferring the moonlight and nights soothing sash
Caring for nature in ways we would miss
With eyes like the moon, such sweet silvered bliss
Until come one midnight, we call Halloween
She emerged to the darkness thinking unseen
With me at her coatails, enraptured, you see
By most beautiful witch there ever would be
She climbed to a tor and chanted a rhyme
But I was lost to her powers almost all the time
She turned to me glowing in magical light
And held out her hand, but not as to fright
And there in the darkness she took me to be
Her private familiar, as I didn’t flee
Forever and ever, she said, that’s our lot
And wrapped up in darkness two bats…

Wonderful use of rhythm drags you in
Awake and dreaming
inside bended shadows
and used half cigarettes.
I’m sullied and worn
wounded through verse
and battered broken verbs.
I hear the soft swaying tint
of whispered vibrations
across an alright riddle
of a curving culling river
where we meet drenched
within the shallow hole
of our fractured nature.
Show me the watered pain
of bruised, tired depths
and I’ll let you embrace
the tender tide of years.
Give me your dismayed history
and I’ll stream our sonnet
punctuated by blushing blood
and flooding the entanglement
…of our former selves.
A course of rippling routes
swayed by a persuasive compass
guiding us toward the softness
of forgetting and remembering
who we can be with the truth
…of our humbled hands.
Wonderfully written and inspiring, please take the time to read.
I had a question posed to me this week: how are you always so positive? Well the truth is I am not always so positive. I write a blog that focuses on learning how to transform oneself from an underachiever, non-doer into a person of organization, purpose, plan and action; full of desire and ambition. It takes a lot of work to remain positive.
The truth is that I am more positive now in life because the alternative is not acceptable. I will not allow myself to go to the dark side and focus on how crappy life can be, how crappy people can be, how I hate my job, how life just keeps putting it to me. None of that applies to me. Why? Because I choose to ignore the negative, focus only on the positive and work toward goal achievement.
This does not mean I am not aware…

So much condensed within one sentence. Bravo Jane.
Try a little thoughtfulness
Please think about those around you, seriously, not all of us wear our hearts on our sleeves….
You never know what your neighbour might be experiencing, or going through…
Their actions, that might annoy you, could be a defence mechanism, to cover something they are going through…
Be thoughtful, this, and every day…
Have a wonderful Thursday Peeps!
