FATHER'S DAY BLISS


Father's Day bliss
Treasure hunt arranged for Dad
Love words pirouetting on cards
Arm kisses soft as dandelion down
Warm hands, woven from dreams
Safe, enfolded
Skipping on cobbled streets
Tiny jewelled moments
Floor sprawled in silly games
Faces, wide with happy abandon
Under the waterfall
Love's haven
This sweet good place
Star moss couched 
Where a little day 
Touches the eternal

MY TREASURED FAMILY

A home pulsing with love, boy energy and life. Football percussion, trampoline somersaults, splash frenzy, a taste of heaven, sweet, unparalleled.
Innocent ease, mirth trills and rose scent. Oasis, openings, opulent joy. Irreplaceable, the elixir of life, gifted days. 
The dance of goodness.
Thank you

THERE WILL COME A TIME......

And there will come a time, when truth will drip from the trees, the innocent will bathe in honey streams, trampled grapes will wine wash and the good will dance in butterfly plenty.
Even now sweet hearts cradle, child nightingales regale the night and the summer air is laden with elderflower promises.
Cottonwood clouds, uncontainable, seed revelation and renewal. 
The living world rejoices. 
Soaring upon love's palm, gentleness and the profound knowledge.
Thank you
