Up from the ashes was born new life
Community spirit, side by side
Working together improving
Relationships, giving women
Freedom. Men had to fight.
England is a new photograph
Counting the wounds. Remembering
The wars best years. Forgetting
The coming together, Community!
Silent, peaceful mind, rounded with God’s kiss,
Hugging yourself inside these soft covers
You lie and ponder poetry, in your heart
To help keep the unwanted thoughts at bay.
Watching with eyes, almost close to seeing.
We become half asleep, half awake, drugged
Like sleepless walkers, wandering alone
With the wonder of this meditative state.
Leave all your problems behind at the door.
Come to this magical place. I invoke
You: take this kiss in your hand. Arise,
Listen to your beautiful heart, awaking.
