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.


This is not a spoon

Echoes of innocence
Stir at its sight.
Jelly and icecream
And my delight.

Of days of play
And summer’s light.
Clowning around
And all things right.

This is in response to ‘not a prompt’ from dverse – thank you fine blogger! My this is not… is a spoon from my childhood.

For my American friends Jelly in the UK is a pudding best served with ice cream 🤤

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.
