“But what about Courage”?

asked she,


“I’ve spent my whole life, struggling to speak”

never one to back down from her challenges,

she’d looked for help in survival guide management.


Many hadn’t understood her at all,

it has felt like she was talking, to brick walls.

And then, this day, has finally come,

when all of her doubts, have become undone.


No longer expecting others to understand,

she forged a path forwards, to a novel circumstance.

As she entered her sentiments of heart each day,

reading between the lines, what she’d wanted to explain.


Inscriptions were written up there, on her wall,

about how she had even, got there, at all.

and then this day, she will just disappear,

in scribing she’d found the means to dispense of all fears.


She had finally found her strengths, pluck and courage,

never again would she feel, dejected or disparaged.


Within these battles of words, i finally see,

i’ve learned all about bravery and how, that is

determined, by me.

Hey June


june numerology hey june .png

in Numerology

The month of June represents “SIX”

“Don’t let the noise of the opinions of others drown out your own inner voice” ~ Bonnie


Be slow and deliberate in thought and action, retreat when being hurried or rushed. Don’t be fooled. Remember, it’s not all equal, not all people are going to show up for you, not all people are going to do the decent thing for you.

June brings stability, strength and understanding of yourself and the many roles you play in this life. Some relationships may undergo a test this month. Let go of certain people, behaviours and roles that you have outgrown.

Sort out your feelings for others. Be honest and open in your relationships.  Look inside, get a better idea of what you want out of life, and don’t be afraid to confront yourself.

Learn not only to give, but also to receive.

Your mantra this month should be, nurture and be nurtured.

(The number 6’s astrological equivalent is Cancer. Cancer is the sign of the nurturer, who is caring and family focused and who loves to create a safe haven and cosy nest)

Swings and Round About’s

swings and roundabouts coming ready or not real 70;s memory lane

Being a wild child in the 60’s was carefree and fun,

cavorting outside till dark, playing tag and run.

“Come out, come out, wherever you are?”

finding secret hiding places was a favourite lark.


Swinging on swings, were dangerous games,

flying so high that poles lifted, off frames.

Bigger kids pushing the merry-go-round so hard,

adrenalin rushes of terror, being hurled across the park.


Skidding on gravel at full speed,

causing concussions, bloody hands and scarred knees. 

“I’m telling on you” were the scariest words,

blackmail and extortion, was rife back in that world.


Remembering back to those chortles of laughter,

and how, I’d survived to live happily thereafter.

“Your Starters For Ten”


There was a quiz night, happening next door,

i hadn’t ever attended one before.

Questions were going to be asked, i knew,

i was hoping, that i could answer a few.


Our odd looking host, appeared in colourful regalia,

cross-dressed between Ronald McDonald and Leo Sayer.

Bamber Gascoyne, he had wished to be,

sitting on a stool, with book perched on knees.


“Fingers to the buzzers” he then said,

“here are your starters for our tables of ten”

We each had to perform our own distinct roles,

intensive team work was to be involved.


In our quiz master’s research for questions,

a lot of sports and old movies were mentioned.

Subjects that i hadn’t known much about,

so quietly i had sat, looking around.


“I’ll have to hurry you” he then said,

drinks and hot food, are soon to be fed.

University Challenge, it was not,

i have to admit, that i didn’t answer a lot.


As the gibble and gabble went on,

many answers were marked up, as wrong.

As a game show host, our eccentric quizzer was fun,

although, i was glad when his questioning was done.

Silence. Whispers

child quietly in thought many women are torn .png


“How can i love you back to life?” i bid,


And she speaks to me, to influence ‘Me’ things,

soundless whispers of insights, she brings.

Heroine and champion, inherent inside,

i’m listening and hearing, retracing her light.


She has fought all of my battles courageously,

consistently she inspires, to empower me.

I have always been vaguely aware,

she, a brave warrior, lives secretly, in there.


Silent watcher, gutsy and true,

she’s had my back, this lifetime through.

Animated, quirky, relaxed and unfazed,

existing privately, in this mesmerising place.


Dipping my fingers back into the waters of time,

ripples undulating, as they fall and rise.

How can i love her back and bring her to life?

to tell her “it’s safe, i’m right here, on her side”


Foolish stories i’d told her, sapped her strength,

today is, a fresh start, in recompense.

Ready, willing and able, to nurture and seek,

to know her again, to speak in ‘peace’


It is imperative to love her, as she deserves,

as i reach back, in honour, of her life works.

Developing self-love? as willing, as i am,

i’m becoming all together again, because, now ‘I’ can.

Rhyme in Verse




unconscious girl with light


It had taken a long time to see,

that the hero within, was actually ‘me’

So calling to my ‘self’ to have a chat,

about what frustrations therein, that I had, had.


After sitting down upon my reasoning chair,

I recounted all of the bad memories that I had held there.

Becoming more depressed, gloomy and sad,

deciding to look elsewhere for the good that was in that bad.


Changing then, my point of view,

in knowing just what I should do.

Seating myself differently in a ‘happy’ position,

was a much improved, recovery decision.


Reflecting there and then, on all of the good,

feeling much happier, as well, I should.

Finding that place, to settle between both chairs,

pondering upon all worries and cares.


Recovering the good and the ‘oops’ in the bad,

feeling much better and happier, that I had.

Considering all of the challenging circumstances,

as occasions that could be changed into constructive chances.


“Everything had happened for a reason” as they say,

I had learned a lot from taking time out to reflect in this way.

Acknowledging there, my self, as I am’

in knowing for sure, that… “I actually can

So There

and so her story had begun…


When back as a child,

discouraged, to be, true to self, wild.

Trained into people pleasing,

never questioning their reason.


Stunned into silence, would you be surprised?

she’s hidden secretly, to survive.

Today, she’s becoming herself at last,

her true calling, is now within her grasp.


Inquisitiveness and curiosity prevented,

but her minds eye, was extraordinarily unrelenting.

Free, unfettered and resourceful, in imagination,

aiding her sensibility to be creative.


Mind and senses, now fully alert,

in appreciation of her own self worth.

Recognising her own distinctive style and flair,

knowing that she had always, had it all.

So There

Make, Believe

There was a haze of fog, mid air,

as she stopped silently, to gaze and stare.


A strange feeling of expectation,

swishing, slowly, flowing circles of sensation.

Attempting to see, the altering lights of shift,

a perspective, only seen through twirling’s of mist.


Bringing her authentic essence into form,

away from the dull and the dreary of norm.

Taking a spell for rejuvenation,

calming inwardly, her anxious perceptions.


Learning from all that she had seen,

her heart contemplating, ideas and dreams.

Finding courage in her convictions,

within the sanctity, of inner listening.


As she slipped through that invisible curtain,

dividing past from present, as sure and certain.

Mind fully opening to unlimited chances,

within other dimensions and circles of realities.


She took another step within time,

to consider her childhood presence, sublime.

In a real world, not merely imaginary,

My dream child exclaimed, “I am not a fantasy”

Away with the Faeries

So from this moment, i’ve ceased to be,

the person who doubts forgotten tales of mythology.


Guardians of sacred Lore and protection,

original purveyors in ‘charming’ reflections.

Chameleons of purity in their white flowers,

to creative red berries, flaming, empowered.


Healing medicine for herbal remedies,

a natural cure for blood pressure and heart disease.

Fragrant fruits, rich in medicinal vitamin c.

everlasting creators of protective therapies.


It is said that faeries may be found to dance and linger,

under the blooms of these magical haw bringers.

Hawthorn Trees are blessers of love, luck and fertility,

budding in times of courtship and at birth ceremonies.


Never bring their Holy Grail flowers inside for decoration,

illness or death will be sure to befall someone.

Original May Flowers and ribboned May Pole,

from back when the legends of Celtic customs were told.


A dear friend of my heart, many, many years ago,

said that she had “seen faeries at the bottom of her garden”,

today, i beg her forgiveness and ask for her pardon,

i believe now, that her story could just have been, so,
