Touch by hand the subtle things

Touch the child with new born skin

Touch the water in rock pools still

Touch the snow - white frozen chill


Touch the bark of trees at dark

Touch the glass and leave your mark

Touch the animal that makes you shiver

Touch the stones in the rippling river


Touch the pen so you may write

Touch the pillow you sleep on at night

Touch the cheek of those who blush

Touch the person whose heart is crushed


Touch the grass in paddocks... Read More

Gossamer circles hang on limb

broken only by the gust of wind

stirred from skies and plunges deep

skies of black and restless sleep

Brumbies stir and gallop up hills

steep their climb strong of will

light from stars bathe the ground

grass is black for miles around

Lightning breaks the darkness still

zig zagged lights across the hill

thunder rumbles high in these skies

brumbies pack warning danger is nigh

Leader heads them up the hills

others follow at their will

strong of legs they carry on

So here I am now,

alone and depressed;

lost in this struggles of life,

inextricably entangled up,

in troubles and strife..


Don't know what's happening to me,

feeling like running out of luck,

nothing positive left in me,

life has seriously started to suck..


Now nothing amuses me,

no situation tends to excite,

life is just withering apart,

something has started dying inside..


All i feel now is disgrace and shame,

nowhere else but in me only,

it's getting stronger... Read More

Straight from the heart

These words said

Somehow they

Appear to be dead

No longer holding

Meaning or worth

Who stole it

A drifting presence


You shall not possess

The unknown

A phantom illusion

Lost in the chaos

A ghost of untruth

No reality...

And so it goes

And so it was

Unwinding the creation

Facing the lose

Scattered beyond

All that was real...

Left on the pavement

Placed with a kiss

Abandoned dreams

Will not... Read More

My fingers wrap around your wrinkly hands

vision blurred, as my eyes well with tears

my lips touch velvet; your soft brown hair

and I do this ov’ and over again

in the short time that we have

rocking gave us comfort cradling you in my arms

with tears that touched your lips

that now would never speak

another chance I beseech, to gaze into your eyes

that are the colour of the sea; embrace your warmth

against my skin, but this will never be

a mother should not outlive her child

I begged take mine, in place... Read More

babbling about age

joints (a different kind) that ache in rain sounds of oohs and aaahs stiff bones - (sat too long) bending with a sock

wrinkles (don't get me started) tired arches - heels too high energy zapped end of the day (do I have to cook) tablets - herbs- vitamins body rattles walking pharmacy

one could ask (no I do ask) how much to they alleviate placebos of the mind thinking of ahead walking sticks (possibly frames) be gone with you

for ageing brings memories smack bang - the hippocampus of daisy chains Hendrix - Joplin laughter sitting cross legged... Read More

as the candle flickers its last breath to

the night, with shades drawn; the day at its end

watching you sleep with lashes brown and long

that settle on your skin, your face drawing a

soft smile; a brush could not do as well

blankets tucked in at your sides to

stop the chill of night; keeping you safe

and warm from winter rain and winds outside

beyond the darkened panes of glass, I watch you

with feelings of love; to protect; till the next

day is done

deep into the night, I lay in stillness knowing

you are there,... Read More

I know Rigina, when it takes a week for legite comments to appear it is upsetting, and it is killing the site slowly. Surely there must be a better way to address the spammers and floggers. Also taking away ratings if you do not post in a period of...
