Real Time

Can I share
a simple 
moment's grace..

embrace
the essence
of your face..

feel a presence
close to mine

in real time..

escape
this souless
virtual space. 


Poem & Painting by Mairi

The hysteria about the outage of some Social Media yesterday, brought to mind the above poem. I wrote it last year during one of the prolonged ‘lockdowns’ we had here in Scotland.

Social Media and Virtual Meetings can never be a substitute for real human interaction, and real human touch. Letโ€™s never lose sight of our need for physical connections, and the giving and receiving of actual physical acts of loving kindness. Social Media can create amplified and inauthentic caring, and a sense of self goodness… at the simple touch of a button.

Deeply Me

I wrote this poem a few years ago…when I remembered who I am, and fearlessly embraced the changes that were happening to me and around me. I still forget who I am from time to time, as I pass through the circles of change; some repeating themselves until I understand their meaning and let go. It’s a very short poem…only 15 words…delivered to me from the Universe to remind me that I’m ‘Light and Free’…always.

I'm dancing
with destiny..

grateful
empowered
light
and free..

all that I am..

deeply
me.
