Aspiration Haiku

Longing to reach higher…

Climbing every step

Reaching for the highest prize

Hear His voice: “Well Done”

Real…

Behind striking avatar

find me – unique person

of real flesh and blood.

Strange amalgam of

hopes & dreams

joys and sorrows

success and failure.

Consciously hiding away,

desperately concealing

inadequacy and vulnerability.

Preferring to be seen

as I may prefer to be,

rather than complex

mixture that I’ve become…

For would that make me

more endearing ? perhaps

more acceptable ? maybe

With such uncertainty within

I resolve not to show ‘real’ me

but will remain for now

~~~~~

Completely wrapped

in that other world

of make believe,

unprepared to face up,

yet longing for

I know not what…

Perhaps an escape plan

to change my world

and launch me into

instant utopia

Dancing In Light

Arrived !

Written in June 2010 for the funeral of my father-in-law, Philip Davis (88yrs)

The journey has been long,

so tough in later years.

Yet you kept pressing on –

through ups, downs, joys and tears

~~~

Bravely you have served

so generously giving

nothing was held back

selflessly living

~~~

Dignity shone through

’til the very end

With faith intact, hope undimmed

and Jesus, your best friend

~~~

Your race has been well run

the course is now complete

and finally you rest

content at Father’s feet

Ambition

A worthy focus for 2011
