Mysteries of the Wind

Up again down again round and round,

whirling, rushing, all over town.

Why the hurry and where’s it bound,

as it swirls, blusters and pushes us around. 

Constantly whirling to and fro.

churning the ocean, as it continues to blow.

So what’s it after and why does it run?

Is it chasing the Moon, or just following the Sun.

Come Sail Away/Styx

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

I am Imagination!

imagination 3a

‘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

Innocent Child

Innocent child how you break my heartinnocent child 1a

lacking food and shelter right from the start.

Was there ever a time you could just be a child

with food  in your belly and a reason to smile.

How did we miss you?

How could we be so blind?

With the wealth of our nation we’ve just got to find

solutions to hunger

for the good of mankind!    Hansi Riley
