You, the rose

Songs of my Soul – Suzy Rigg

Excited heart and mind racing
full of ideas, vigour, drive
realising something brilliant
takes you into another realm of discovery
the postcard in a shop window speaks to you
a conversation overheard pulls you in
you interrupt knowing it’s rude,
but can’t stop yourself!
Events are overtaking you
doors of opportunity fly open
you’re moving through life with confidence,
not knowing how this happened
but it’s happening anyway
say hello to YOU, in your fullest bloom.

The Yummy Life

The Yummy Life, Songs of My Soul

What is life all about? Joy! Yes Joy life is as fragile as a butterfly wing, easily crumbled, beautiful, simply
dove blue, striking red admiral bold! Be quick, oh, you missed it, it's gone!

I came when you called me
but too late, blown away with the clouds,
smashed into millions of pieces
like star's dust..
beautiful fragile life,
smile at it, smile with it,
Enjoy life, like the tastiest food imaginable...
Share rich indulgent thoughts, pungent ideas and tasty heart experiences for
this is your life, "I eat for nutrition, not for taste, she said!"
At 92, with a spirit, strong as a diamond
she knew how to live and how to love,
she wasn't thinking about endings,
she raced towards beginnings of things,
the egg-timer of life struggled to keep up.
