Trust

Poem By Valerie Lennox

Just a touch ….. the promise of a touch
Just a certain kind of look
Just a way of saying something
A gentle aside, a soft glance…..

Slowly the bud is formed,
The shoot appears green and new above the moist earth
Nurture it, care for it, and rejoice in its new growth
Celebrate its freedom as it reaches out for the warmth.

What is this unfolding? – Long forgotten….
The feelings that are beginning to form
That bring with them happy sad reminders
Of promise and hope

Courage!
Trust that what is, is meant to be
Trust that the time and season are just as they should be
Trust that these new feelings are real

Courage!
I tell myself – whispering – don’t be afraid!
If the ground remains hard and impenetrable
Dry and dusty as a ghost town street
How will new growth survive and flourish?

Courage!
A timourous fluttering – waiting for the sweep of the owl’s wing
Scampering from shadow to shadow, afraid of the light
Be brave – feel the warmth, the life, the love
Of being in the Light!

In Trust I step away from the darkness
Slowly, cautiously, I reach out…
For you.

Treading Water

Inexorably, minutes tick by
And time seeps slowly past
Like the trickle through the crack in the dam
Hardly noticed until

Little Silver Penguin On A Chain

I cleared out the attic today and found a box, sealed with tape
It wasn’t marked and I couldn’t remember what was inside
I’ve carried it around for many years
Moving from one place to another, as my life has changed.

Just Another Day

Six am the alarm breaks shrilly into the scattered edges of a dream
And the grey dawn peeks through a tattered gap in the curtain
Fumbling for a moment, reaching for the shattered start
Of yet another battered day.

A Tragedy, A Travesty

The beast stumbles
Knees buckle and as it gasps
The buzz of a chainsaw fills the night air with
Raucous screech and birds desert their roost

Blue For You

Oh Baby! its been a long long time
I’ve been missing that love of mine
And it feels like only yesterday
That my darlin’ just slipped away
