For she is a golden rose
A fire bubble in the sky
Like honey that melts with each spark
My abundant life
Monitored by a bell
& marked by the rise and fall of the sun
Love stems from a time
Surprise grows into my day
If I could hold her
She blooms when there is darkness
& grows where there is light
Caress her roots
Thorough peaceful rest
Desperate to maintain her beauty
I thank God for the cycle of life
& for her by my side

I had a busy week and there were times in my day where I paused and meditated, hoped that the rotation of a day would save me from how drained of energy I felt. And it worked. :) Have a lovely weekend everyone!

I wrote this poem with the symbolic nature of one day filled with love in between. There is more to this poem that I can describe if my readers are interested? I wanted that you first have the chance to decipher the meaning yourself. Thank you for reading and as always, I’m thrilled when people like my poems and leave comments. Keep on dancing!
I was alone with the sun
And it shone on me
The colors of its rays
Set me free
But I didn’t die
And I was made to be free
Blinded the free
Blood vessels free
And I was left all alone
With the sun
As it shone on me

The poem above can have various meanings, perspectives and interpretations. It has my own personal meaning, that of sadness felt… it will pass, and a phase. It was fulfilling to be able to put emotions into words.
Thank you for reading.
stars that govern the night
span the sky with abundant light
some are bright, some dimmer
the brightest are not always bigger
secrets they hold provoke wonder and hope
could they ever agree?
the dimmer not always further from me
among the illusion and confusion
keep your eye on that one star
follow it through the maze
keep your interest
and focus your gaze
study it and before you realize
time will pass enough
to eventuate a sweet surprise
a faint, quick, sharp
tear in the sky
keep it in your thoughts
and make it yours

Today my husband and I went to see the planes at the nearby runway. It is a favorite pass time for him, and I adore sunsets. And upon our venture I noticed something very special, and I filmed it. As a girl, growing up in Darwin I loved to cloud watch and make out the shapes in the sky. I used my imagination to make out what the figures might be and observed how they changed.
I am experimenting with the technology I have at hand. You tube is great and I’m learning all I can. At the moment I can’t add audio to my film, but I can add music as provided by Youtube. This is a beautiful piece, and I added my audio separately as an MP3 file. The poem is longer than the footage. Please press play on the audio first and then the film and they should then finish together. How timely!
My dearest Vladi, I dedicate this poem to you.
Thank you for listening!
