What do you See? April/09/2019

What an interesting image to work with this week Hélène.

I am the Mother of all things,
My love is endless, eternal.
They gather to worship the Sun,
The heart and soul of Being.

I listen to the howling wind,
Trees sway and dip their limbs
In waters blue and cool,
The essence of life and giving.

Greed and malice raise their heads,
Destruction to take what is not theirs,
The future is not bright,
Harmony is lost and replaced by discord.

I cry tears of sorrow and despair,
My children have lost their way.
The valleys and forest lay barren,
The world is flanked by darkness.

The sun is weakened by foolishness,
The time will soon come to try again:
I am the Mother of all things,
Love, laughter, folly, and pain.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Amazing poem, Di. You have expressed it all in your sumptuous poetry, your end with a clamor of powerful words.
    The sun is weakened by foolishness,
    The time will soon come to try again:
    I am the Mother of all things,
    Love, laughter, folly, and pain.

    The sadness and the joy, but always the greed.
