I look up at one of Mother Nature's wonders;a wondrous Rainbow.
A time for contemplation I think;
Despite having to give up work due to two operations on my back I am now doing what I always wanted to ;and that is writing.
Inspiration comes flowing from all corners; my children and their families,my wonderful eleven grandchildren ; their love of life and each wondrous and tender character warms my heart.
I live in a small village with my partner and I only have to look over our patio to know how much we love one another.Despite having to grow everything in pots our patio is alive with flowers,shrubs and fruit bushes;which are all lovingly tended .
I memory of my musically talented sister.
My beautiful daughter
A Rock Rose.
Erin and Val's garden.
This morning I sat with my early morning cuppa enjoying the sounds of the birds magically singing to their heart's content ;to the heavens above.
We have also planted a mini garden in memory of my beautiful daughter Erin and my beloved sister Val.
I am awaiting the publication of my book of poems called 'My Beautiful Rock Rose' this title came from the one plant which has outgrown all others. My beautiful daughter had such a character and had to be the star of the show.

Dear Heart in Rictameter.
I'm filled with joy
There is so much beauty
In a cascade of shooting stars
Blossoming up to the heavens so high
Angels songs so heartfelt and beautiful
A spirit calls out to us all
Oh how I truly love
You have shown me
Colours in Rictameter.
Into the night
Such a glowing magic
Light up with that magnetic haze
Each dark crevice now a wondrous new world
My spirit dances to the tune
My heart soars up above
True mixtures of
Life may not always have been rosy for many of us but it's what we have today that matters.
I have my family ;wonderful friends whom I have come to know through my writing ;my wonderful home full of care and warmth and last but definitely not least I have my wonderful partner of six years who has been by my side through some very difficult times.
All through my life I have firmly believed in
The Serenity Prayer.
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.
