Pink Peony

Basket of flowers
Being delivered today
Rush past my person
With no small delay

My heart wells up
My soul is touched
To have but a petal
In palm of hand clutched

My yearning is felt
A small gift breaks free
Released from its hold
Pink peony for me

I lurch through the crowd
Stem falls to the floor
My heart sings out loud
To my creator once more


Cat pillow dog blanket

I have a friend very close to me
Who wonders why it was meant to be

Why are we here? What is it for
Is there any reason to be here at all?

I do not know, there are no words
To justify why we are in the world

All I have is all I know
That I am glad for this moment now

To be alive and to be aware
To be a part of our world to share

So while we breathe – live in harmony
For each life forms the world’s company

Dogs and cats and humans too
Snakes and rats and a kangaroo

For without this life breathed into us
It would all be bleak, nothing to discuss

So let us praise, let us rejoice
Let us sing with a joyful voice

For this common force, the world we share
For our earth and pure magic air
