Mother

Wrong pathway I take
Astray in a maze – I head
Without directions

Just behind a push
Her blessing comes; paths return
Unseen yet I try

Destination clear
Journey continues hopeful
Light I see now, smiles

Right guidance to goals
That terracotta road, strong
Dependable mum

Poetry & writing to me are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
