I *heart* poetry

I love poems to tie me over in emotional times. My elderly cat went to the kennel in the sky today. I think it takes a fellow pet owner to understand. 

Here's a poem I've had published in our local weekly paper: - 


All is calm, all is still;
I drink you in, so that I can survive.
Tranquility, peace and everlasting stillness,
So refreshing to sit in comforting solace.

Colours, fragrance, petals, 
leaves, nectar and pollen.
Bird song, butterflies and bees.

A garden to last all eras, as a part of nature's gift.
Protected by loyal human determination to never go unkempt.
