I’ve  been doing some poetry work at the Hospice again today and soon there will be enough contributions to make a booklet of the patients’ work. The theme is along the lines of I AM…. I might add a  short poem of my own; I made this one up  while I was looking out on the beautiful garden they have there.


I’m like the clouds in an autumn sky –

I drift along in the breeze

waiting again for the sun to shine

or to grasp at some golden keys

to a place where I feel quite calm and still

and my tattered old soul is at peace

and it knows for sure that the future holds

just rest and hope and release…

So, here’s hoping.
