The Black Pearl

“The road, endlessly leading you into the horizon.

Eyes fixed on the white heartbeat.
The line that offers up comradery,
radio banter and mates.

Dancing pin holes of red lights in the distance
assures you safety in the pack.

Body, mind and spirit of the road captains
we call truckers is respect, honour
and friendship”

The Black Pearl!

The road, endlessly leading you into the horizon.

Eyes fixed on a white heartbeat. The line that offers up Comradery, radio banter and mates.

Dancing pin holes off red lights in the distance assures you safety is in the pack. 

Body, mind and soul of the road captains.

Respect, honor & friendship. 

The Black Pearl….

Time!!

Read somewhere today that “life is not a about waiting for the storm to pass but learning how to dance in the rain”..

I thought this was so perfect when I think abouf the “time” wasted worrying about the things in our life we cannot change..

There is so much more we can do with that time, until the storm passes..

My Reasons!

” Today it is one of heartache,

to see those who once were strong 

and protective, just slipping away

like ice-cream on a hot day.

Dignity, respect, joy, loneliness,

depression, fear, sorrow, emptiness,

and the feeling of loss. 

Aged and sometimes frail,

yet full of life and stamina,

parents can drain you.

Callous words, forgetfulness,

robs you of memories gone by.

Stay strong they say, ignore the pain,

just put it all aside. 

Words do hurt and cause trauma,

sometimes so deep, that to disappear

is a good option.

But who cares for these souls, 

who once carried us through

life’s hurdles. When life has moved on

and they are left behind?

I was told today that miracles 

do happen.

Forgiveness, compassion & kindness.

Deep in my soul, in the silence of my

reasons to continue this journey.

I pray for peace in their hearts”.
