Rain - a haiku

Rain! Oh graceful wet. Precious life rise and falling. Summers dry earth quenched.

Appreciation

Find a place you’ve never seen. Wander a path of sun dappled loveliness, never want to leave. Complete peace you know unique creates almost holy...

Paradise

Paradise... When eyes have ceased to search and rested. We sped up life to degrees impossible to see... A blur! whizzing past, react so fast,...

Posted on Fri, 18 Dec 2015

This is a very evocative and clever piece of writing and describes the situation extremely well. If only it would touch the heart of the person it should the most and yet only the kind hearted will be the ones saddened.

That is good news - as good

Posted on Fri, 04 Dec 2015

That is good news - as good as you could hope for in the circumstances anyway. I know you might feel like you are not out of the woods yet and you still have cancer but it's a positive milestone passed. You can take comfort that your suffering...

Posted on Fri, 16 Oct 2015

I was waiting for that ending all the way through. How often have we spoken to our children like that in order to protect them from something nasty. It struck a chord.
