The Bone

#writephoto Bone

I once lived in a field

So lush, so green

I loved my life, just me

and the other nineteen


Once a paddock so lush and green

No rain

No water

The land grew dry

The herd grew lean


One by one

my friends left the fields we once grazed

Sanctuaries came forward

My friends, my herd

I’m joyful,

they were saved


I was happy in my field so beautiful

So green

I am now nameless

Just a bone

I was overseen


In a dry paddock I am all alone

Just remnants of what was

I am just a bone


I watch from above

I am at peace, I make amends

I am a soul on a journey

I hold no grudge

You rescued my friends

I have reached my fabulous 50s. Guess what, it’s okay. 20 years in the health and wellness industry. Educating men and women on the importance of nourishing their bodies with good food, moving with integrity, recharging their energy levels and empowering their minds. I love my job. A mother of two boys who are now men and my greatest achievement. A lover of words, an aspiring author with a book written and no idea where to go next, a poet who writes from the heart and her vulnerability. A foodie who loves to experiment, a salad lover , But not just your Every day salad, I throw in anything you can think of it ends up in my salad. I have a reputation for making the greatest weirdest salads around. As a total contradiction, I have a ridiculous sweet tooth. I rescue abandoned souls in the bodies of dogs, an animal lover, Who sometimes likes animals more than humans. My teacher in life, my mother never ceases to amaze me. I am one fortunate human being who is filled with gratitude for the life she lives.
