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.

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. Let’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.
