My Beautiful Covid Dream

My Beautiful Covid Dream
there was a group of young women
all dressed in colourful flowing gowns
out on the grassy slopes
of a residential area
perhaps a college
they were laughing and dancing
a happy celebration
a few young men turned up
friends to cheer them on
then came the theme of the rose
each had a different colour they chose
and these were used to enhance
their playful, joy-filled dance
up a slope
down a slope
playing hide and seek
then came a time
to co-design
a way to remember
each had a plaque
not too large
upon which they placed their rose
and beside each rose
in their own prose
they wrote how it represented life
somehow the plaques were sealed
in a shiny clear covering
that instantly dried and preserved
their discovering
of what truly mattered
then a large group plague
appeared with a purpose
and magically somehow
each rose resurfaced
a column of roses
and beside each one said
who they were…
i am love
i am a friend
i love life
i am …
each a brief definition
of how they chose to live
with a statement that anchored
all they wanted to give
perhaps a class tribute
to encompass all they had learned
from love,  life, friendship
and joy

Terminal Happiness

Terminal Happiness
terminal happiness
destination joy
grounded in loving
with all senses employed
dancing thru the doorways
exploring the more
laughter, curiousity
becoming folk lore
giving and receiving
with a balanced delight
weaving generosity
gifting our light
blessed to the heavens
rooted in the earth
growing and expanding
and rolling with mirth

Honouring Water

Honouring Water
dip your hands in water
wash off your face
finger tips wet with water
smoke from snuffed candle wick erased
house plants will tell us
when they are thirsty
and what would we do without water
when something is dirty?
let’s make a game of it
and name Water as we use it
more than a precious commodity
it absorbs our emotions – let’s infuse it
water infused
with our love
and appreciation
blessed be
let’s make tea
