Inside my mind
In my imagination
Like Ali, I am the greatest
I fly with eagles
Sale the river on the back of a black swan
Cross the Amazon in a single bound
Build the pyramids single handed
Rediscover the lost library of Alexander
I know all the secrets in the Vatican
I read the minds of our great inventors
This one was heavy going
They do not think the way we do
Discovering new worlds for humanity to live on
Hoping this time not to mess it up
I have had ten minutes all to myself
Back to work now
Tea to cook, family home
Washing to be done
Homework to be taken care of
I wonder what I will get up to tomorrow…
I pluck a feather from the air
An angel passing
As the champagne cork
flew across the room
The mirror ball spun
Silver dancing fairies lit the room
We jive to the sound of jazz
In a smoke-filled room
Clash with a stranger’s shoulder
The beat slows to a gentle sway
Dancing closer now
The feeling between us electric…
Just checking in to say we now have wi fi, but not sure how, as landline not working!
Saw these incredible pictures this morning and wanted to share…

Being here in the first place
The friendships we make
The lovers we take
Fighting through the storms
While an angry mother
Tries to rearrange the world we live on
The beauty of a coral reef
The sunsets, the full moon
So many gifts
The hand of a stranger offering help
The sound of a new-born baby’s cry
Someone will always be here
While others leave
A reminder of our immortality
Art made by a stranger’s hand
That we like to look upon
Most of all to be loved
To love in return, to live, to prosper…
Due to our wi fi malfunction, we are a little late posting our entry for Sue Vincents #Writephoto challenge.
Better late than never, I say!

I fly over land and sea
Finding all I am meant to see
Astral body glowing bright
Alongside birds who fly at night
I see tall dark trees in winters light
Reaching for each other to say goodnight
Spring returns with summers oncoming light
New warmth returning bright green leaves
We sleep now beneath soft grey clouds
Curtains drawn against the dying of the light
A strip of blue as a reminder of days return
With a slow spinning world
We root our lives upon…
Have you ever had one of those days
when you feel as though you are made of glass?
I am having one today.
I can feel small pieces slipping away as I walk
I am broken, disappearing slowly
I can almost see the pieces glistening behind me
like a trail of breadcrumbs.
Will someone follow and put me together again?
Emails: Do you find them delightful or disastrous?
There are days when I find our never-ending list of emails such a chore. Days when the list is stuffed full of messages from people I don’t know, and endless advertising. Not to mention all the get-rich schemes and must-have courses that cost a fortune!
It can take two hours to sift through them all and this must be done twice a day, seven days a week.
Today was a good day. There were several beautiful poems, inspiring stories and articles that had me reaching for my notebook. Smiling one moment, then wiping the tears from my eyes the next. There was also a couple of helpful posts that might make my life more interesting.
I like to share the better and more helpful emails with our readers, when we get them, of course. I mean, you can never have too much of a good thing, and if we can cheer up or help at least one person each day, I consider that a good day.
There is one aspect of our email list that does concern us, and that is the amount of companies trying to fool you into opening their emails for fraudulent purposes. We are advised to ignore them and never open them, but if it’s a company you use or belong to, it can be worrying. Supposing it’s genuine and you really need to read it?
I mean, how are we supposed to know the difference?
Much more of this, and I can see that letter writing might be making a comeback!

What do you see when you look in the mirror?
Is it the many other parts of you?
Is it the shadow of your childhood
standing behind you?
How many of those young dreams
still beat inside your heart?
Does the grey hair remind you
of the inevitable?
Old dreams become new,
you no longer look for yesterday…
I thought I would share some flowers with you today, for they do seem to make the day a little brighter, don’t you think?
