My reading chair

My reading chair

In my reading corner

In my bedroom

Next to the window

Where the sun pours in, in the mornings

My reading chair

A simple Ikea chair 

With a footstool

Usually covered with books

Where I do a lot of reading and writing

My reading chair

My oasis

My place of calm

Where I inhale the fragrance

Of other people’s thoughts and feelings

My reading chair 

For the last twenty years

And for years to come

Hopefully

Reflections

IMG_3847

I just realized I’ve been posting poems on this blog for ten years. How the time flies. I’m grateful to have discovered the gift of writing at this point in my life. It centres me, it nourishes me, it helps me process my thoughts and feelings, and I hope my writings bring joy to those who read them. It is important for all of us to identify what we are passionate about and peruse that and if that passion is in a creative field, even better. The arts are expressions of our souls and as such they will touch the souls of others. I wish you a wonderful year and I hope you will pursue your passion as well.

Here are my wishes for the new year

I wish for peace in the hearts

I wish for love among men

I wish for justice, so rare these days

I wish for laughter to bring you joy

I wish for understanding that we are one

I wish by Saadi’s wish we would abide

I wish for being kind to nature

I wish for brotherhood among men

I wish we’ll think of others more than ourselves

I wish we take the necessary steps

To build communities that thrive

I wish we each do our share to change the world

And above all, I wish you contentment!
