As I was preparing this new episode of Heeding Haiku With … I realised that this date brings sad memories back to the world. Back in 2001 9/11 was a horrible day … a day full of death, despair, anxiety, tears … well all those emotions … just sadness.

Archaic Ache – Freestyle Poem

The Daily Post – Archaic

Archaic Ache

Archaic is the ache of my heart
for days gone by, days of ole
days before the cell phone got its start

When people walking down the street
would look each other in the eye
and smile into one another’s soul
now people never look up to see
the light of love and beauty
only looking down to see the inanimate object
their hands cling to so desperately

A loss of intimacy that once existed
now a disconnect of the warmth
that is no longer revisited

Archaic tears have now become new
for the loss of closeness we once knew

Whispers From The Heart

Whispers From The Spirit

There’s an ache in my heart
the weight of uncried tears
they hold tight to stay where they are
I invite them to flow into the Light
they refuse my invitation, preferring
not to leave their current destination
what shall I do to make them flow
for I want this weight to go
so I put pen to paper
to give my ache a voice
that it may rise from my heart
and ride upon angels wings
into the universe and depart
not to return again, instead
to have Perfect Love abound
and turn this sad heart around
looking up instead of down
this the path I choose to walk
for it is by Grace that I have this choice
to have given my ache its voice
and now the silence of Love
prevails from heaven above
so mighty is the pen
that is my good friend
leading me to depend
on whispers from the Spirit!
