A Gift From Heaven


With loved ones
Or close friends
And talking

Sometimes you don’t
Need anything more
Beautiful surroundings
An added bonus

A gift from Heaven

Winter Stravaig (24b)


Huffish gusts
Umber and ochre
Rule the roost
Trudge through mulch
Swaddled in umpteen layers
Drool of buttered toast


Shadorma November

Second Sight


The path at my feet
Writhes with tangled letters which
Ooze life but no words

Where’s Molly


Nought and sixty
Journeys round the sun
A well earned retirement yawned

But ever resolute and determined
…..(While behind her back
…..The usual poltronas whispered
…..Words like “stubborn” or “obstinate”)
And presumably wishing to remain
In the best of good fettle

Announced her intention
To walk ten miles
Each and every day
And, as good as her word
She then walked her talk
Setting off the next day

And the next
And the next
And so on and so on
And so now of course
No one has the first idea
Of where she might be

(Except of course Molly)


“Poltrona – lazy woman, indolent woman”. (Wiktionary)

A Poem By Thich Nhat Hanh

“Take my hand.
We will walk.
“We will only walk.
We will enjoy our walk
without thinking of arriving anywhere.
Walk peacefully.
Walk happily.
Our walk is a peace walk.
Our walk is a happiness walk.
Then we learn
that there is no peace walk;
that peace is the walk;
that there is no happiness walk;
that happiness is the walk.
We walk for ourselves.
We walk for everyone

always hand in hand.

Walk and touch peace every moment.
Walk and touch happiness every moment.
Each step brings a fresh breeze.
Each step makes a flower bloom under our feet.
Kiss the Earth with your feet.
Print on Earth your love and happiness.

Earth will be safe
when we feel in us enough safety.”


This arrived from my friend. (You may remember him from I wanted to share it with you also.
