j-flamingo reflections

Inspired by the grace and beauty of the flamingo, my life reflected by my love of reading, writing and creating.

Heartfelt Humanity

 Our life is but a sleep and a forgetting:
The Soul that rises with us, our life’s Star…”

~William Wordsworth 1770-1850 From #536: Ode

Heartfelt Humanity

Through our memories

we live in each other’s hearts

our bodies are cold at death

what’s inside us is beautiful

and helps us to live

we are enough to BE.


Do the best with what we know

and what we are given in this life

we are treasures-

more than we know.


Our souls heal



if separated

these simple impressions

may not be felt anymore.

We seek to speak-

heart to heart

a presence is left

within memory.


Being kind is always an option.

reaching out to others

to lift them from despair

is an amazing occasion.


Be sincere-

find light and share it on a whim

Just because-

no reason necessary

give because you did not

and you want to.


Life is a miracle

gently wake

pursue happiness

each day

fight for peace

that is worth

what kindness brings.


Live in the middle

of the song

be the harmony

finding beauty in the breathtaking


because you are breathing

you are what

you were meant to be-

I’ve needed to write this for some time and I can’t seem to write anymore for this blog until I get this posted.  I know this poem is not perfect but please understand that it is written in earnest.

She is pure Alice in Wonderland, and her appearance and demeanor are a nicely judged mix of the Red Queen and a flamingo.
