Blue Moon




That was certainly ‘full on’ couple of days, that big blue moon I mean. I went from happiness to despair and back again. I can be affected by the moon, I recognise and prepare for it, but this last one hit me for six.

On Monday I woke up feeling an emotional wreck, tearful and despondent. I couldn’t see much good in life. I opened my arms and embraced hopelessness fully and without question. Life was pointless, I was pointless and anything out there in the future just wasn’t worth it.

I spent the day going from one disaster to the next. I burnt toast, opened the door and the heavens opened, got lost and ran out of fuel. I didn’t want to talk to anyone and didn’t have anyone to talk to. It rained all day, for the umpteenth day that was, and the plants drowned.

Do you recognise this day, have you visited?

Yesterday I woke up singing, nothing had happened but my world had changed overnight. The sun was shining, the plants didn’t look that bad and I had things to do, people to meet and places to go. Everything went right, starting with my hair and outfit and moving onto everything else. I laughed with the people I met, finished projects and got new leads. People warmed my heart and made me feel loved. To put it simply, life couldn’t be better.

That moon is powerful but I think there’s so more going on. I constantly see double digits, my dreams are wild and my intuition is on overdrive. I think I’m being prepared for something. I’m releasing and letting go, the tears are cleansing, cathartic and restoring. Tears are the weeping of old wounds, healing from the depths within.

Are any of you getting this, are you experiencing similar? Are you managing the changes that are happening or are you immune to it? Is it necessary for growth, is it happening to all of us. Do some people just not notice or are they being left behind?

I know it’s crazy but it’s my kind of crazy now. I’m rolling with it, I’m trusting that there’s something wonderful to come. Today’s another sunny day and any clouds are just full of hope.

I watch the moon daily, I live by the sea and often stand on the shore watching the tides, sun and moon. I’ve been sun gazing too, that’s another story. The sun feeds me and the moon washes me, they are necessary to my growth, just as they are to the plants and everything else.

It’s all just cycles, I’m in a cycle, I’m moving through and so are you. Love to hear what you think of my craziness ūüôā


Reflection in the Mirror

I looked right into the mirror today,

asked that my cares just go away.

Looked for what I thought I knew,

asked if I could just see the truth.

I watched the tear roll from the eye,

saw in great depth my silent cry.

The path it took along my face,

so easy for my finger to trace.

It followed lines that tell my tale,

when I gained and where I failed.

The etchings on my face you see,

are like those circles on the trees.

They tell the stories of my life,

the love and laughter also strife.

I’ll get more I know that’s true,

I’m hoping they won’t be so blue.

I’d rather those around the eye,

those of laughs, of joyful surprise.

But I will take what I am due,

I’m sure that I can see it through.

As after all is said and done,

I’ll only be ‘me’ for just this once.

I may come back I don’t know,

but no longer as me for she will go.





Water drops from my eye and blots at the ink

I stare through my tears and don’t overthink

It’s your day again, the day you were born

June twenty eighth and I can’t help but morn

I know that your near, I believe that always

It’s just harder for me, as it’s your special day

Happy Birthday mum, I really love you

I know you are dancing with legs you can use

The oxygen gone, no longer required

You can float through the air without being tired

The tears are of sadness because of your pain

But also of joy because we’ll meet again.
