Breathing space.

Took a break, a breather, unplugged,

Read the stars, swam in the magic of words. 

Walked amongst trees and sat by the seas.

Let the rain wash my soul as the wind dried my tears.

Solitude gentled,perhaps nearly mended.

 For now…


Tethered by grief.



Trapped beneath a dark grey sky.
Tethered by grief, unable to fly.
Waiting for the light to banish the night.
Wishing for wings to enable flight.
An outstretched hand, a tentative smile
A meeting of minds closes the miles.
One simple word can make a start.
One gentle kiss might heal the heart
