I continue to recover
WINGS

I must have forgotten who I am
because I’m once more compelled to write
This time my verses are about good things
and not about anger or fright
It’s not as if I’m completely healed
I still contain many survivors
But they want me to write and tell about our life
and they will be my advisers
Writing is the way we reveal our thoughts and feelings
as we continue to recover.
You never know what we might find
as hidden thoughts and hopes we discover
Rainbows and dreams are in our hearts
as we look around at the earth and sky
We were given the wings of birds like doves
and we were encouraged to fly

BEAUTY
I can continue to keep moving ahead
My body is no longer made out of lead
I hear laughter in the cool morning breeze
I feel hope as birds flit through the trees
Nothing binds my agile feet to the ground
Everywhere I look I see beauty abounds
Flowers spring from the lush meadow floor
Curious chipmunks invite me to explore
A spring bubbles into a sandy pool
It’s time for me to live life to the full

Cherry



THE FOG

I think my brain is scrambled,
I can’t escape the fog
One foot then the other
Through the marshy bog
I must keep on slogging
Until I reach the shore
Gentle hands will guide me
Through tomorrow’s door
No more will pain imprison me
Filling me with dread
I’m reaching for the light
That’s somewhere up ahead
The fog is now clearing
The sun is shining through
The clouds have all scattered
The skies I see are blue

PURPLE DRAGON

Humor is a purple dragon
With gauzy wings
Laughing and dancing
As his heart sings
Happily gliding
Over meadows and trees
Body caressed by
A warm summer breeze
No more in hiding
Afraid someone will tell
We are the winners
Our adversaries fell
Humor has no sorrow
No need to shed a tear
Purple hope fills it
With love and not fear

Cherry

WINGS

Butterflies with gossamer wings
are dancing in the air
They are not afraid to fly
they go everywhere
First they glide, then they land
on every lovely flower
The sweet nectar that they sip
replenishes their power
Strong wings won’t be caged
they’re always in a hurry
Waltzing through the sky so fast
wings a little blurry
Birds and bees, and butterflies
all have silken wings
Flitting from place to place
for the joy it brings

Cherry

WONDERING

I don’t know where I am
I’m lost in time and space
If I don’t know where I am
I could be any place
When I look into the mirror
Someone looks back at me
When I look into the mirror
I’m wondering who I see
They might be young
They might be old
But they are me
Is what I’m told
My heart tells me
Just how they feel
Happy, sad, or angry
I know that they are real

BE STRONG

It would be easy to be bitter over all that's wrong
But that wouldn't help-we need to be strong
Dwelling on the past with all of its pain
Will not help us contentment to gain
The future is what we need to prepare for
When our pain will be remembered no more
We know that someday we’ll be free
Of this awful pain and it’s misery
Dawn will come and we’ll be there
With skies of blue and weather fair
Rainbow promises give us hope
We will refuse to sit and mope
Better times will soon be here
We can’t give in to helpless fear
When we’re angry or feeling sad
We must remember that not all is bad
Now it’s time to put our feet on the floor
Stand on our own and walk through the door

Cherry

HUMMINGBIRDS

Hummingbirds are darting through the air
Tasting flowers everywhere
Colors are bright, shiny, and bold
Blue, purple, green, red, and gold
Turning somersaults, flying upside down
Sipping nectar all day, wearing a crown
A rainbow fragment flashing in the sun
Humming and waltzing until the day is done
