On writing

 

white flower

I wonder where my feelings would go
If I didn’t write
I think the’d be all bottled up

Emotions swirl in my heart
I feel them strongly most times

They need a release
Somewhere to go
So, as words on paper
They flow

That brings me a sense of peace
I feel less distressed
More at ease

Writing my solace
My intimate friend

One who’s alway ready
To listen

The long view

One must learn to live with uncertainty
Some problems take months or years to resolve
If one is not comfortable with uncertainty
Those months and years will seem so long

One must find peace in a chaotic world
One must find some joy in sorrow
Life is full of ups and downs
Joy and sorrow come and go

Patience, perseverance, reliance on God
These are good provisions for our journey
And it’s good to remember that
When one problem is solved
There sits in wait, another one…

Dreaming…

If Canada were situated in the tropics
There would be no room to stand
The immigration waiting list would be a mile long
Not to mention all the visitors swarming our land

But wouldn’t it be lovely
To move this wonderful place
To warmer climes

The peace, the tranquility
The courtesy, the humility
The diversity and richness
The striving for excellence
All of this in a sunny spot
Where winter would not make
Many of us hibernate for months

Yes, I know
We can’t have it all
But I can dream, can’t I?
