Spirit Free, Body Mending


As the day breaks, we awake with our spirits free,

untangling from our dreams.

Our body still mending – as we stretch,

and we realize there is still poetry

waiting for us, regardless

of our aches and pains.


As you know I love writing poetry, but as I grow older I am dealing with chronic pain now. So I will continue writing, and posting, but my presence here will be reduced.

I will be focusing more on exercise, Asian medicine (sometimes called alternative medicine) and pain management.

Thank you to everyone for reading my poetry!!

I wish everyone peace!

  1. I appreciate all you share. You know that. And I appreciate it even more knowing about your painful times. I am sorry about that but I am glad that you are taking good care of yourself.

  2. I haven’t been on wordpress for long but I’ll definitely miss your daily poetry. Hope you feel better with time.😄😄

      1. Well, pray for my friend Ancient Skies, too. Someone’s on the other side, waiting to nod yes. 🙂 ❤

  3. @”I will be focusing more on exercise, Asian medicine (sometimes called alternative medicine) and pain management.” – you’re sooo right… Oriental(Asian) medicine is a few thousands years “old” and it still works fine – if used wisely… my very best: courage, strength, patience and quick recovery, Sir!
