Recollection (haiku)*

Silent, disjointed~

Memories clinging to past~

Entangled confused~

*Note: what most people don’t know is that dementia sometimes takes root at a younger age, the signs may not show themselves until middle age. (Below is a link to more information about dementia.) I dedicate this to my best friends mother Juanita (she was like my second Mom, we even shared the same birthday). She was a brilliant woman (she was an integral part in instituting the bilingual program in the Chicago School System) and a much loved teacher by her students. As always a song.

Triggers*

lg/11122020

*Note: many suffer from anxiety, brought on by a number of different reasons. Some suffer extreme attacks needing medication, others mild that can be brought under control with breathing exercises. Meditative music also helps to calm a person during an attack. Neither form is pleasant to go through.

Face of The World*

life today

can pull

you down

to the ground.

walking through

empty streets,

as fragmented

memories

circle like

splintered light.

once enlighten,

now

pain

etched

shallow faces.

visions lost

hiding

behind

hollow eyes,

thoughts of

tomorrow lay in

shadowed

darkness

so oblique.

*Note: melancholic thoughts are more prevalent this year than in the past. Isolation can do that, call, FaceTime or zoom those dear to you. Know that you are never truly alone have faith let your spirits be lifted. πŸ™‚ Sending a virtual hug around the world.

Walk With Us*

luminous blue moon

fills night sky,

clouds overshadow

it’s light,

winds howling

raises hairs,

eerie lights

appear to glow

among the trees,

silently hidden

away from sight,

one may watch

as spirits stroll

leisurely without

a care,

beware not

to be seen,

for you may

join them

eternally.

UH-OH

Silence (tanka)*

emotional blues~

cries within wanting release~

struggles inside self~

battles daily twofold war~

harmony a fleeting thing

*Note: Many fight depression, anxiety and bipolar conditions just to name a few on a daily bases. Mental health is a major issue for many on a good day, however with the Covid-19 quarantine it is even harder for some to deal with it. Even those without issues are finding it difficult to be isolated. If you know someone who might be struggling reach out, you don’t need to give advise, just let them know they aren’t alone. This video connected for me with my poem. πŸŒŽβœŒπŸ»πŸ’™ Take care, be safe.
