We may be missing so many different things at the moment but in our mind’s eye we can go wherever we please through the portal of imaginings and be at one with those places closest to our hearts ♥️

Mother (A Haiku)

Swan In The Mirror (Haiku)

Her silent partner
Simulates her every move
In graceful concord

Symbol of tranquillity

A New Day Is Breaking 

 

A new day is breaking

In chorus awake
To sing with the lark
With nature partake
In the beauty she’s made
As her glory shines through
In sheer hallelujahs
Coming right into view
And as sun rises slowly
High into the sky
Be uplifted, exhaulted
Let Spring’s spirit fly high 

Spring

She’s waited all winter
Laid still in the cold
So patiently held back
With all things on hold

She’s bided her time
But soon she’ll be here
With warm sunny days
Tidings of good cheer

As spring in her glory
Bursts forth into bloom
With bright yellow daffodils
Dispelling the gloom

And with lambs in the meadows
Frolicking anew
Comes the season of hope
And all things brand new

Akin to a bride
She’ll arrive splendidly
In a garment of green shoots
And a trail of beauty

Spring

 

Photoshop Faces

Each morning when she gets up
She photoshops her face
With layers of paste and plaster in
The hope that by the grace
Of God or maybe make up
Her mask will fox them all
To think that she is so perfect
Just like a Barbie doll

And with her paint and lipstick
She moves into the day
Praying no tears will tumble down
And wash it all away
Nor any other happening
For then, she fears we’ll see
Her face naked and all exposed
Which she says is ugly

Yet less all her mascara
Eye liner and much more
There’s fairness in her face deeper
Than her made over flaws
For cosmetics cover nothing
Are really no disguise
As beauty hidden underneath
Is best in any eyes

The Face Of True Beauty

If all the content of your heart
Your mind and soul laid bare
What sight would be revealed to all
Would it be fine and fair
Or something that you’d want to hide
To cover up, not see
For would your inner life be pure
Or just plain old nasty

And if the inner thoughts you think
Were written on your face
Would the picture be pretty
Of simply a disgrace
Would all those words you want to say
That lurk beneath unseen
Be pleasant if put on full view
Be murky or pristine

For our facades must so reflect
Our inner self; our core
To not conflict and cause much harm
For peace to reign secure
And then the person you become
Will glow and simply be
Holistic, integrated self
That shines out true beauty

Beyond The Mirror

Looking in the mirror and thinking
“Flip! What happened there?”
With hair all wild and crazy
Sticking out without a care
And so grey – where did that come from
When did these signs appear?
For time is rocking on a bit
And age becoming clear
When did these wrinkles creep into
The folds of skin by eye
And oh boy, what gave that stomach grace
To drop south nearer thigh?
But still – each line, each fold, each crease
Are stories in life’s pot
Of a life lived, that’s cared, that’s smiled
So hey! Who gives a jot!

Looking in the mirror and thinking
In a fine and dandy way
Hey if this is what the years can do
Then there’s not much to say.
With hair pure white like wisdom
Each crease, a memory
From smiling through life’s path or course
That’s good enough for me!
And as for stomach – best less said
Save once in days now lost
Four little lives were born from whence
The muscles bore the cost
And so the marks of life reside
On body and on head
But greatest image not in sight
Is heart that still beats red
