Wind blasted,
Flood battered,
Sun wizened,
The small tree
Clings to earth
And to life…

Thoughts Revisited, on World Water Day

Water…
It covers our world
In a moving blanket
Of currents and tides,
Pulses through our bodies
With each heartbeat…

A young girl’s
Butterfly hands,
Set free in
The enclosing darkness,
Dance expressively
Before the glow
Of the lamplight
Creating shadows
Against the fading wall,
Shadows enfolding
Rose-colored dreams
And midnight-blue secrets
Born in her heart.
Linked, become
Wonder-full wings
Taking colorful flight
As they lift her wishes
High into
The magic night
Where their light
Can flicker
And dance
Among the stars
She wishes on.

Love has many colours:
Strong reds
Inflaming
The heart’s
Deepest rhythms;
Hot oranges,
Flickering with
Fiery feelings;
Sunny yellow bursts
Of bright laughter
Shared;
Quiet blues,
Deep greens,
Where friendship
Rests;
Comforting
Soft greys
Quietly wrapping
Dear companions;
Rolling purples,
Soft magentas,
Deep blue-blacks
Of long time
Well spent
Together.
Colours to wrap
Our selves in,
Magic, like a
Rainbow.
