I know
 I have not been
 much .
I need time
is a magical gift 
and as long as we have TIME
all is possible .

to me time is  healing 
it's like water streaming
amongst stones
 making all 
soft and shining 
and beautiful 

I feel an inner peace
I never had
I can see how
my life
has brought me here
and how I was able
to do and learn 

I now understand
how all had a meaning
and I can feel so blessed
and all of a sudden
my old pains
vanish in sparkles 
leaving a soft feeling
of autumnish colors ...

My (autumn) birthday
is coming soon
november 2
How I love novembers
and this time
november 5
I will never forget
A new gift
a new hip
a new future

  1. I love that each day is getting easier for you. You seem happier and content.

    We share a birthmonth. My date is the 16th.

  2. Dearest Francis, I AM SO EXCITED FOR YOU that you are finally going to get the help you need to feel NEW AGAIN! And my dear, I was just thinking of your this morning and by doing so, I came up with a poem for my Tuesday poetry workshop here in my home. I wish you more and more moments of healing time that only come when we are alone, at peace. I have my best moments when I take a walk all by myself at the dark hours and watch the sky and stars. Much love to you, Anita

  3. FRANCIS! I just saw your comment on my OLDER POST....I wouldn't have known you came by to comment unless I had been scrolling down and saw another comment on my rain are CORRECT. Good and bad have to exist together in THIS LIFE for the lesson - oh how your comment made me think even more about the preparatory state we are in for something BIGGER and BETTER. We have to learn and that we do learn and grow when we struggle. Here is a fantastic poem that my teacher gave me that is not just for poets/writers, but for anyone:

    "The Real Work" by Wendell Berry

    "It may be that when we no longer know what to do
    we have come to our real work,

    and that when we no longer know which way to go
    we have come to our real journey.

    The mind that is not baffled is not employed.

    The impeded stream is the one that sings."

    XOXOXOX Anita

  4. Beautiful words, Francis, to remind us that we should not rush through life, but rather take our time and enjoy it.

  5. Sweet friend...your time is coming! It is so close now...I am very happy for you. xo

  6. It won't be long now, Francis. I'm so happy for you, dear.
