Friends & Family

Let me speak of the wonderful,

Linkages and interactions.

Those that bring joyous distractions.

Whose company I am grateful.

Their constancy always thoughtful.

Of course I speak of friends not foes,

And dear family who did sow;

A love that grows and will not rot.

I am entwined in bless’ed knots,

I will not cut, yes this I know!

For the Ronovan Decima challenge – this week the prompt is knot.


Gratitude Whirling

This week has been full of pain.

Physical & inescapable.

Insight waxes & wanes.

I am not capable.

But instead of spiralling,

Avoided melancholy.

A gratitude whirling,

Keeping me jolly.

You see I’m surrounded,

By those who care.

A wonder unbounded,

Making life fair.


False Perfection

Must go to the gym,

As fat is a sin.

Or so the say.

Must have those new things,

As owning brings,

Happiness back.

I know deep in my soul,

Externals aren’t the goal.

Just mirages.

True contentment has a guise,

Exposed only to the wise.

From understanding;

The physical is an illusion.

Don’t get caught in that delusion!

See what is real.

Desires for a false perfection,

Are akin to a corrupt election.

Offering loss.

As all you’ll want is more.

Never satisfied, that’s the flaw,

No sweet ending.

So what are you to do?

Seek after gratitude;

For what you have.

This simple approach,

Will soothe, not reproach,

And joy is found.
