What I see
beyond the horizon glow.
Beyond the hues of purple and gold.
Beyond the setting sun
and the glittering of the bluish sea.
I see a coming birth,
a new day,
I see hope.

Happy Burns Day to you
Happy Burns Day to you
Happy Burns Day dear PHers
Happy Burns Day to you:
(Robert Burns 1759-1796)
The twenty-fifth of January
A day when aw Scots smile
Remembering the greatest bard
Tay ever grace the “Royal Mile”
This son of Ayr, of toil an moil
Whose pen and wit, when put tay test
Was courted by baith high and low
Tay this day, still deemed, Scotia’s best
Fur who c’d haud a candle
Tay his banter, lush and loose
Tay string sic words o wisdom fay
A chance encoontur wi a moose
Immortalised the humble haggis
Hauf the world now know its fame
An tho he loved the lassies o’
Above them aw came Jeannie’s name.
Tho only therty-seven years passed
Afore his wick had burnt right oot
His spirit, words an songs live still
In those who choose tay follow suit.
Tay lift his mantle, brave an braw
Humanitarians, first, above aw.
As Venus fades in a Winter sky
I just see the winking, of Rabbie’s eye.

Life through a colleague's eyes
I have trust issues. Which no one person can be directly accused.
I have lived a life of being beaten and cheated. In many ways
My small and petite stature, has left me open to the world's abuse.
My small and petite stature has set me up to have a life where I
Why have I been designed for failure?Why is it I seem to attract
I am now of the mind where I expect to be hurt early on in relationships.
I find it difficult to resolve challenges within relationships. I run from
inexhaustible issues within relationships.
Something needs to change and I do not want to agree to a new a found
friend's opinion of my state of mind. Although I can see he will never
leave me behind.

there is no science without prescience
it wouldn't be a science
every science has its prophets
medicine changes the body
the body changes the medicine

To all those who read my earlier post,
I am sorry to have worried you so but I am not going to kill myself. Its just that, in my family when a person becomes a certain age, their parents decide to stop celebrating their birthday because they are to old to celebrate it. I just don't want to stop celebrating my birthday though.
As I said before I am terribly sorry to cause such worry.

Dotage pervades upon the ashen grey,
mercurialed waves of a rankled brain;
thank Christ insanity smothers p a i n.
Hemispheres networks sore estranged,
obstruction, occlusion, neurologic stain
like leaves besmirched by driving rain.
Waning, draining, consumed in bereft,
so hauntingly loud be their final breaths
until mercy comes by the heart of Death.

Poetry is truly an art I really enjoy reading other people's work and finding pleasure in doing so. Just want to encourage all poets to continue to writing.

When baby strollers are instant coffins
and body parts are stepped upon;
when gray matter hangs on walls
like sticky cotton balls,
on-lookers continue doing what they do.
Those who eat, eat.
Those who sleep, sleep.
Those who watch, watch.
When children are skinned and their parents
lose their head, then their minds,
when rape and rapine become commonplace,
leaving no room for solace,
witnesses don't stop what they do.
Those who laugh, laugh.
Those who look, look.
Those who think, forget.
