The love of my life!!!!

Who could ask for more?

He is handsome, debonaire , regal,
well built and totally charming..

I love this man in my life…



Just want to say thank you to all my blogger friends!

SONY DSCI love poetry, writing, photography and really anything to do with words.  And if it were not for discovering “blogging” I would never

have had the absolute joy of reading and discovering so much talent.

There is inspiration when I need it, joy when I am down, courage when I need a lift, lessons to be learnt and

stories that can only benefit my knowledge each day.

So thank you all so very much.

What is Love?

An emotion, a warm and fuzzy feeling.

That feeling that makes your heart beat faster.

Pain and trauma that eats at your insides when you loose that special person or dream

The opposite of hate.

Love is a choice.

There will always be someone or an event that can tear our immediate world apart. I say immediate because tomorrow brings a new day, a new choice, a new beginning.

Yesterday is now in the past.

Love has many paths, directions, options and choices.

Choose to to see the love that is all around you.

Although there will always be that special love.

There is much love that life has to offer you.

Take it, accept it, enjoy it.

Surrounded by Fire – Bushfire Crisis

Emergency warning in place. Roads closed again, leave now or stay in doors.
Just when we thought you were sleeping, you awoke like a thief in the night. The wind merely lifted and you awoke in a rage. You finished what you started. This time you took out our source of energy that we depend on. You melted these tall electrical structures like they were jelly and sought after more ammunition along the way to satisfy your hunger.
With a deafening blow the earth shook beneath us and in the distance we see the color of the smoke turn black, thick and swirling like a tornado. My heart jumped. Fear, heartache, anticipation and adrenalin flowed through my body like an electric shock.
The wind changes, its time to get the fighting source out and wet down the grass before you spit out your ember and attack once more.
Surrounded once again.
Fire, you are not my friend nor are you my foe but maybe one day we will can live along side each other in harmony without pain or suffering.

Choose Love

Love, an emotion
that causes behavior
sometimes beyond
our own imagination.

Maybe acts of kindness,
or tremendous sacrifice,
Whether it is foolishness.
We still choose to love.

People can hurt us,
in the depth of our soul.
Betrayal and deceit
causes trauma.

We are not perfect
mistakes will be made.
Forgiveness is a key.
For to love those
who hurt us
is a choice regardless
to love.

Choose love”
