across the bridge…

as we laid
your body down
and you crossed the bridge

to the other side

the airy wind
blew it’s gentle breeze
around us, it flowed

to the other side

a lone tear
escaped my eyes
racing to my mouth

I had promised
that I would
stop crying

but the calmness
of the air
reminds of your gentle ways

when will we
see you again, if ever,
my heart is pained.

For you my dear friend – departed – I wish not to say. May your soul find rest after all the pain. May you know peace and may your wings continue to flap gently in the wind. I see your smile. Though we know that none of us will get out of here alive, that death is part of life, yet, its sting is never lessened.

Just A Thought For Today…

Maybe, just maybe when you spend less time minding other people’s business and more time minding yours, you might actually have more peace and make more progress in your life ‘cos when you stay in your lane, there’s less traffic to contend with.

Just a Thought

If all parents claim to be great and the best parents, just where do their children learn all the ugly attitudes?

This recent video below left this thought on my mind. As a parent, I know that children may still end up doing what they want and exhibiting certain individual traits that would probably drive their parents crazy, I however strongly believe that nurture greatly shapes a child.

This lady is shaping her son to grow up as a racist. Apparently, his health is the least of her priorities since she chose racism over that.

Have a bite…Every day beautiful people #38

“If you knew what I know about the power of giving, you would not let a single meal pass without sharing it in some way.” BUDDHA

I enjoyed watching the lady take morsels from a tray and give the man standing in front of her whom I presume is her husband and a younger gentleman, possibly her son.

She reminded me of my mother and the lesson that when we share, we always have enough 🙂

Below is my first just published Poetry Book “Out of the silent breath” which is available on Amazon and Smashwords.

When you buy my book, you support me in an invaluable manner.

Out of the silent breath

Brand me whole as only you can

That the entire score of me

Knows nothing but the fullness of you.

Titillating Conversation…Every day beautiful people #17

‘A conversation is so much more than words: a conversation is eyes, smiles, the silences between the words.’ Annika Thor

I love real heart to heart tête à têtes. It reveals bits and pieces of the soul and creates honest moments in between- Jacqueline

Do women enjoy titillating conversations or is it just the menfolk that does?
