#Poem on Friday: Busy and short

Hello you dear readers! I am so glad you are here. Just sit down, have a cuppa of your favourite hot beverage, grab a cookie and relax. I suspect we need it in these uncertain times.

That is why I keep it real short today πŸ™‚

baking and cooking

the holidays are coming

rest with stones and rocks

Happy Friday to you all. Just remember in all the chaos that you rock!!!! πŸ™‚

#Poem of the Day ~ Dark Heavens

Hello out there, are you rocking and rolling? I very much hope so and if not feel the love that I send out every day to this planet and it’s inhabitants!

It’s time for a little haiku

image of a wooden goyne heading into a wave

Dark heavens looming

The sea storming towards land

candle in window

No storm at our shores by the way. Rather more a short heat wave πŸ™‚

Happy Thursday to you all despite everything!

#Poem on Friday: Her Darkest

I wrote this post several months ago, before my cancer diagnosis. We still try to be as self-sufficient as possible but now the best husband is doing most of the work, while I try to get through chemotherapy 😊

Hello out there, how is your life going? I hope you and yours are well and if not know my prayers are with you.

I have scheduled my posts six months in advance because we want to become as self-sufficient as possible. This means in summer we are outside caring for our fruit and veg and there is not so much time for blogging. That is part of my winter routine when the garden rests.

As you know I am posting a musical journey around the world on Mondays and I discovered a Greenlandic band called Austra when I was writing this post. Their song “Darken her Horse” inspired me to write this poem.

dark clouds like horses

this rainstorm approaches fast

her hope never dies

Happy Friday to you all!!!!!

#Poem on Friday ~ Take Life in Your Hands

Hello out there, how are you? I hope life is treating you well and if not that you have a mug or glass of your favourite beverage and lots of ice cream and chocolate. Yes, I know that is not the most healthy option to cheer oneself up but sometimes it is the only way… πŸ™‚

It’s Friday and my time to post a poem so let’s not talk the day away just go for it πŸ™‚

take life in your hands

choose what encourages you

see the sun rising

Happy Friday to you all despite everything πŸ™‚

#Poem on Friday: Bow in Gratitude

Happy Friday to you all. Let your day rock no matter the challenges. I believe you can manage anything thrown at you.

Sowing and planting

These hopes grow every day

Bow in gratitude

Just a short note to everybody. I could start chemotherapy on Monday. Thankfully, I am not bothered with many side-effects (yet) but am really really tired so everything is going on a slow burner.

Thank you so much for all your kind messages on social media and here in the comments. I appreciate them a lot and they help me keep up on everything. Yesterday I wrote a little about my experience on Carol Anne’s “Therapy Bits”: “Bee’s Poem of the Day: Breathe” Please pay her blog a visit. Thanks.

Happy Friday despite everything!

#Poem on Friday ~ Human Being

Hello out there, how are you? I hope you and yours are well and safe. Please take a moment and breathe and remember you rock. Might there be a hidden blessing in these difficult times? My blessings are with you.

Human Being

Human being not doing

Remember your roots

Remember peace

Remember harmony


Human being

Happy Friday to you all despite everything!

#Poem on Friday~ Snow glad Mountains

Hello out there, how is it going? I hope you are well and if not find some healing energy coming your way.

A month ago I sat in our living room wondering who will be winning the general election and how my mental health will go. It was rather stormy outside. I love those windy nights when you can snuggle up with a book or in front of the tv for a nice film. Cup of tea in my hands and relaxing.

Am wishing you a wonderful weekend with this little poem

See snow glad mountains

they are dancing and glisten

awoken from dream
