Hold… onto my hands


mauve leaves

Hold onto my hands, dear
I will not let you falter
And should you need a rest
Among the eucalypt trees
Let us take in the scene
Of beauty and breathe

Hold onto my hands, dear
You will never be alone
There will be thoughts and wishes
To keep you company
Love and care to guide your sleep
Remember, never alone

Hold onto my hands, dear
Almost to the mountain top
Looking across the southern seas
You may let go then
My hands but not my heart
Stand, beside me forever.

Broken Arrows


Sharing one of my most listened to music at the moment…

Usually not one for electronic music, but I guess the lyrics got me.



Now as you wade through the shadows that live in your heart
You’ll find the light that leads home (home, home)
Cause I see you for you and your beautiful scars
So take my hand, don’t let go

Cause it’s not too late, it’s not too late
I, I see the hope in your heart
And sometimes you lose and sometimes you’re shooting
Broken arrows in the dark
But I, I see the hope in your heart

I hope you enjoy. Have a great weekend!

Love is love


Love is love, don’t you think? Does it matter the occupation, the socio-economic background, the gender, the race, the culture, the nationality, the age, the abilities…

We love because we do, and we are loved just because. Some have a tendency to overthink, to intellectualize what is deeply emotional.  I wrote about labels we in society give to each other which serve to bound and limit our creativity, our self-expression, our sense of self. The risk is we end up allowing these labels to define us by their dominant attributes.

Here’s an interesting and recent TED talk about a heartwarming journey of two women who explored the world seeking hope and belonging.

“And in the end, love is gonna win out!”

Drifting: in Love and Happiness.


Drifting In Love and Happiness. A Poem.

Time drifts into a path of mayhem without a destination.

Setting my course on the waters of peace and calm.

I turn my fate toward that which holds my compass true.

There is no turning back once truth has been found.


Does your life fear reality in all it’s frayed tapestry?

Do your hours run past you without meaning?

Does your heart beat faster without a purpose?

Do you know where you are going?


Embrace the obvious when it embraces you in its warmth.

Allow your mind to drift along and ride over the waves of madness.

You will find gentle slopes on the other side, bringing thrills to your heart,

And enliven a life with the missing part that was never found till now.


Peace, calm, floating, drifting, feelings of air beneath your body.

Feelings of pure love and happiness permeating your mind, body, and soul.

Delivering you each moment, in thought and spirit into the land of hope.

Always move forward with the knowledge love and happiness is there.

My appreciation goes out to Florence. My blog has moved in some other directions of late and she has graciously allowed me to share some other works here for now.

Haiku Challenge 56 @RonovanWrites


RonovanWrites Haiku Challenge 56 with prompt words – Luck, Hope

Many of you will have seen my post on the crumble, not apple crumble, but hard drive crumble of one Ronovan. Yes, Ronovan of this haiku community. Lucky thing he posted his weekly prompt challenge before the hard drive to his laptop crashed and died. His ‘little’ tablet is rather unfriendly when one has to contend with fibromyalgia, sore joints and migraine, among other associated ailments.

So I have set up an Indiegogo Life fundraiser to fund a purchase and help Ronovan return to blogging and writing. Not only is writing therapeutic for Ronovan, many would miss out on his generosity and guidance in the blogging world, and not least his writing.

We have reached 44% of the target. Thank you once again to everyone who contributed financially as well as sharing the fundraiser on social media.

Here is the link to the Fundraiser ‘Ronovan’s Hard Drive Crumble http://igg.me/at/TgYcKHA81zE if you wish to use it, in your post perhaps?

Or you may click here to assist Ronovan – any amount would be greatly appreciated.


Now, my haiku for this week:-


It’s based not on luck
Instead love and hope, my friends
Care for another.
