Although the name of this blog might give the impression it will be filled with positive and calming reading the reader may find this is not always the case. I make no apologies for this.

I believe experiencing the whole range of emotions, both those considered negative and those considered to be positive are a big part in what makes us human.
Acknowledging and expressing those feelings in an appropriate way makes us healthy humans.
You will find the gamut of emotions expressed in my works on this blog. I hope they encourage the reader to acknowledge their own feelings both positive and negative.

Tides of emotion...

Tides of emotion

Like the pull of the tides
Emotions sweep over us
A dance of ups and downs
Twirling us this way and that
As the ocean casts driftwood
And other treasures
Each pleasure and pain
Carving us into who we will be
Flotsam and jetsam
Washed in by the sea
Fear, grief and sadness
Happiness, Joy and love
They all leave an indelible mark
We don’t always see
Allow ourselves to feel
And our spirits will always be free

  2. Felicity thank you for visiting my much neglected poetry blog and for leaving a comment.I appreciate it very much.The tragic events in Japan and around the world are going to leave many people with feelings that may be difficult to express and affect them for years to come. It is truly terribly sad.
