Water still as glass
Alice-like my mind

slips through

upside down world
portraying perfection –
halcyon days

a small bird’s
sweet note

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

  1. I had to look up halcyon because I wasn’t sure I knew what it meant (I didn’t!). Knowing the meanings gave this wonderful poem a whole new depth. Thank you for this new addition to my vocabulary.
