I am alive
With
Possibilities
That
Will
Become life
Through
The deliberate meeting
Of
Bodies
And
Fertile
Open connections
Between
Minds

Possibilities

I am alive
With
Possibilities
I believe
Will
Become life
As
I am lifted
Higher than high
Filled with joy
And
Frightened
In
The same
Single breath

Confession: I’m easily distracted by bright colours and shiny things.

Sometimes this can be good thing.

In this case, it led me to discover that Vickie Szumigala had nominated me for the One Lovely Blog Award. I have often visited her site, but this particular post drew me in: Sunflowers…..Buds To Blooms. It displays a brilliant yellow sunflower from a variety of angles, which made it impossible for me not to take a closer look.

Vickie thanks for nominating me for this award!

♦ ♦ ♦

As with most awards in our vast blogging community, there are rules. You must thank the person who nominated you and link back to their site. Done and done. You must also share 7 things about yourself (this is never easy for me); then pass the award on to 10 other bloggers and notify them of the nomination.

Here we go…

7 Things About Me

1. I don’t understand why people are mean to each other because it
takes much less energy and effort to be nice
2. I dance when I’m alone
3. I have supportive friends
4. I try my best to support my friends
5. I always carry an umbrella, but don’t always use it
6. I believe the digital divide needs to be eliminated
7. I had a lisp when I was a child

Not exactly
A yellow brick road
But
These stones
Are
Littered
With
Gold buds

That
Have fallen
In sacrifice
To make way
For
The full foliage
That
Will follow
And
Sway
Above
Us
In the glow
Of
Warm
Golden
Days

We must
Hold on
To
Optimism
Even
When
Hurdles are erected
Along
The path

That
Routes
Us
To
The fulfillment
Of
Our
Individual destinies
Which
Are
All
Linked
By
A collective desire
To
Succeed

Nature’s bells
Ring
Drawing
Our attention
To
The awakening
Of
The world
From
Its slumber


As
A new season
Arrives
To cast colour
Up on
What
Lay
Hidden
But
Now
Bursts forth
With
Blue brightness
As
Each chime
Spreads
The news
Of
Change

Time
Has
Bonded me
To each of you
Since
The starting line
When
The first trigger
Prompted us
To spring forward
With actions
To change
The world
Around
Our bodies


And
The bodies
With
Which
We will collide
As we travel
Between
Life’s challenges
Boldly
Conquering obstacles
With
The knowledge
We have collected
In preparation
For
Our individual journeys

Time
Has
Bonded me
To each of you
And
I am confident
The great distances ahead
Will
Never
Be crossed
Alone
Because
Even in separation
We
Are
Together

Inspired by the women who have been my strongest supporters during the past three years and who will be with me every day for the rest of my life because of the friendships they planted in my heart.

My life
Is
A vapour
That has willed me
From
The moment of my birth
When
The light of the world
Seeped
Through
The calm comfort
Cradling me
And
Seduced me
To follow it

In to
This fractured place
That changes
As
I grow
Up and in and outward
Obtaining new perspectives
Which
Are
Temporary
Fleeting
And
Quickly
Passing away
Before
I have had my fill
Of
Whimsical enjoyment
To
Render me breathless

My life
Is
A vapour
Unable to settle
And
Become
Cemented
Because
It is necessary
For
Awakened spirits
To
Roam
Free
