Magic of Reading

sail away

Stay with me Oma

read to me some more.

For my mind is full of wonder

and your words

they open doors.

To travel and to ponder

over lands so far away.

Read to me Oma

and let us sail today.   Hansi Riley

Quiet Glen in Winter

A soft glow and then radiance

as the Sun pushes out

from its blanketing of dark clouds.

I feel my skin warm under its caress

I’m surprised by its intensity

on such a cold winters day.

The glen under the sun’s touch, softens glistening snow 4a

and snow fairies appear

glimmering and dancing

from newly melting snow.

The forest groans and whispers

as snow

loosened from heavily burdened branches

softly hits the ground

 and small animals scurry,

in search of food.

I breath the frigid air

absorbing the glen’s tranquil beauty,

and say a prayer of thanks…

for all that is life!              Hansi Riley

Mysteries of the Wind

Up again down again

round & round

whirling, rushing

all over town.

Why the hurry

and where’s it bound,

as it swirls in and out

pushing us around. 

Constantly whirling

to and fro.

Sailing the oceans

as it continues to blow.

So what’s it after

and why’s it run?

Is it chasing the Moon,

or just following the Sun?          Hansi Riley

I am Imagination!

‘I am imagination.

I can see what the eyes cannot see.

I can hear what the ears cannot hear.

I can feel what the heart cannot feel.’

We’re in this Together!

If we left politics, religion In this together

and all other differences

at the door,

it would then boil down to this…

All we really have on this planet

is each other,

so we really should play nice.    Hansi Riley

Our choices

Sometimes I’m happy2012  1da copy

sometimes I’m not

but it doesn’t define me

and I’m not getting caught

in doldrums, sadness

depression or blues

for I’m aware of my blessings

and it’s joy that I choose!     Hansi Riley
