Chronic this pain
finite the energy
fuels each day

Ability to wonder,
marvel at nature –
without limits

Thoughts, like leaves
break away, swirl
float on the wind –

I am at one
with possibility
free to create

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. Thoughts like leaves swirl away,
    Not before they spiral around us like a twister,
    But once they are gone,
    How you wish it was swifter

    🙂 – just a small appreciation for your lovely poem from me ..
