Mary Mc Creath

Sleep won't Come

It's late at night,
It's time to sleep,

But sleep won't come.

I close my eyes,
Put out the light,

But sleep won't come.

I toss and turn,
I stretch and yawn,

But sleep won't come.

death-My Gran

She knew,
I Knew,
She knew.
But how?

What gave her strength,
Such perfect strength.
Now?

When I did ask,
How could she face
That Mary,
Had to die.

She said to me
In answer clear,
HE knows
The reason
Why

life-Life Is

How precious life is
how resilient life is
How surprising life is
How beautiful life is
How ingenious life is
How attractive life is
How unpredictable life is
How different life is
How short life is
How long life is.

dream-The Snake

The snake was held
In another's hand.
Kill it I said,
Before it strikes.

The other struggled
With it
And could not contain
The head.

Beware it will
Strike you.
Get its head
Before it bares
Its fangs.

The snake seemed
Weak.
I rushed in
And pulverized

light-Mystery

The light
Came closer
Walked right
Next to me

I walked with it
Sometimes,
Sometimes it
Walked with me
Into my life
Where I walked not
With it
And made me be
What I was not.

The light it entered in
And lived inside of me
I lived in it,
Sometimes,
Sometimes it

call-Encounter - walking with

The light
Came closer
Lived right
Next to me

I walked with it
Sometimes,
Sometimes it
Walked with me
When I walked not
With it
And made me be
When I was not.

Living In

And lived inside of me
I lived in it,

prayer-River Voyage

My voyage is also
Sometimes, on a river.
The river is gentler.

Here I have time,
As it slowly flows,
To wonder
At the lush vegetation
On its banks.

Sometimes it turns
And my heart pounds
In expectation
Of what is waiting
Round the corner.

I love the river,
Of my prayer
It carries me on
To new vistas.

light-I Live By Light

I live by light
Was born seeing night and day
Colours bright and grey
Shape and form
Height and depth
Of things I knew.

I live by light Grew
Seeing family and friends
Scots and other peoples
War and peace
Experiencing joy fear
Of from
People I knew.

I live in light be
Seeing things that I do not 'see',
Things shown to me
Not by, but in the light
That light Knows me.

nature-Day Ending -Izeli

Jacaranda in full bloom,
points it's branches to the setting sun.
Gentle breeze rains blossoms from on high
to carpet the earth with their purple dye.

Heavy flapping of the cawing gulls
swallows in pairs dance in a race
Bright green light green shadows lengthening
White disk with a shimmering face.

Dark green treetops turning yellow green
Olive lit hillside now to be seen
Tiny butterflies fluttering bye
Dust like dots of the tiny fly

Here I sit and drink in the life
of nature and creatures
as the day is ending
I marvel and wonder at the life I see,
in a perfect rhythm of eternal blending.

thoughts about what-I Believe

Parody on a Frankie Laine song 'I believe' top of the charts in 1953

I believe the morning sun will rise and run across the sky.
I believe in azure blue I'll look and see bold birds fly high.
I believe that trees will grow and bend and bow and dance.
I believe that flowers will show and prance with their fragrance.

I believe that all life wakes to own and claim their day.
I believe their spirits rise to guide them on their way.
I believe that deep inside of everyone, we all are there.
I believe in being still and resting there in silent prayer.

I believe that this is how we all will find our way,
To face our day,
In every way,
And live as one,
Beneath the sun
That rises every day and makes its way across the sky.
To shine its light
on you and I.
