Happy Birthday, Kethry!
(And yes, I know I'm late
For here, it is still morning
But you've already changed the date!)

I hope your day was happy
Filled with smiles and fun...
I'm sorry my wishes are tardy -
Hope you had a wonderful one!!

thanks suthern for remembering for thinking of me amidst all your troubles and for being you.

Yes Deer still alive and kicking, better watch out I've had boxes of chocolate.

Midnitesun, I'm still around, I got busy with real life and I'm leading a poetry group once a fortnight. There are some talented poets in Australia so I don't write much because I can't compete. This is one I don't know if I'veposted but since this is not likely to be read by lots, here it is again.
Beyond Bliss


I have bargains with the devil
   debts I cannot pay
My soul wastes away
caught in the undertow of life.

A younger I stood idly
   and watched sunsets fire horizons
beyond my grasp

I am Pan of the pipes
   aching to be restored in music
      tho’ envy keeps me on the cusp
makes holes in my silence

I weep from wanting
Rise on wings of mourning
to be reborn again.

I braid a mandala of waiting
from strands of infrequent happiness
which arrive without warning
pass too quickly

I am colour surreal
Pigments of imagination
but lack the black of conformity.

I hold breath in symbols
Hieroglyphs of history
   awaiting translation
by generations raised beyond time.

My spirit once sold
gavottes through probabilities
incurs debts of soul accounting.

I am the nails in the cross
The cave of resurrection
The pursuit of elation
to give meaning outside all things.

I carry a basket of craving
   in beggar’s shoes

Still the piper comes.

If any of those poets down under are better than YOU, I want to read them! *S* Beyond Bliss is incredible... I miss your words, my friend... I miss you. *S*

And I know I haven't sent that address stuff yet... I'll email you right away before I forget. *G* I am one scrambled blonde chick these days. LOL But... I do finally have an address and a phone... so I'm rejoining the world, one box at a time. *S*

Hugs to you and many wishes for happiness... you deserve the best on your birthday and always!

Kethry!
Good grief another December b'day I've missed. Hope it was a great day. I can't tell if my hearing is failing me or my eyes. Did you say you can't compete so you aren't writing much? I didn't know those were the rules or I'd have quit a long time ago too. Come on now, being average like me is kind of fun. Let's see a little more writing this year.
