#FridayFeeling #haiku ‘A Christmas Wish’ #poem

Shades of gold and red,

Memories of Christmas past,

Hearts both smile and weep.

I’m feeling happy and excited, planning meals and family reunions, yet nostalgic as Christmas approaches.

There’s so much to look forward to, but also so many people to remember and miss.

Here’s a poem for the person I miss most ❤ every day.

A Christmas Wish

If you were here with me,

Right now,

I’d be twice as happy.

If you could hold my hand,

Once again,

I’d be twice as brave.

If I could phone you now,

One more time,

I’d hear your wise advice.

If I could hear your voice,

Once more,

I’d laugh and jump and cry.

If we could talk and plan,

Like we would,

We’d find a way ahead.

If we could sit and chat,

Today,

You’d help me see the light.

If only I could have

One Christmas wish,

I’d wish to be with you again,

Just once.

For Elsa❤

Taken today during my morning walk.


Stunning pink petals
Cuddle up to bare branches,
Beauty and the beast,
Agony and ecstasy,
Two sides of life’s golden coin.

#PhotoOfMyLife Day4 Autumn Leaves #Poem #MondayBlogs #MondayMotivation

On my way to town this morning. What a lovely autumn day!

Enough

The path is narrow,

With many a winding turn,

Which leads us to who knows where,

Who knows when, or why?

So, Crunch the leaves,

Stare at the sky,

Feel the wind swipe your cheeks,

While the sun tickles your eyes,

And smile,

Because that’s enough.

Enjoy your walk!

On my way back home. I’m nearly there!

I live outside my city, but not far enough that I can’t walk into town. I could take the car or catch the bus, but as I’m in no hurry at the moment, I enjoying a long, brisk walk. (I spent many years rushing to work, shopping and taking the kids to school and after school activities!).

Sometimes life is so demanding that we forget what a simple, quiet walk can do for us. We can stop for a few minutes to listen to, see and feel the trees, wind, and sky, which is so mentally and physically refreshing.

I love walking. It’s great exercise and I have time to think about so many things that time flies by!
