Taming This Tyke's Voice Since 2007

Creating Festoon Of Memories


I select salient picks

From life’s garden

Creating festoon of memories.



I weave them in a tender thread

That binds us ~


The longing serves

As sturdy knots

In between. 


I choose

Stunning colors

To embellish the wreath



And hide the sorrows

Now and then.


I collect strands of thoughts

And shared laughter,

And tie them with ribbons



To mark each moment

That I take in.



Those conversations

Would ease the burdens


Of concealed pain,

‘Til we see

Each other again.


I’m weaving a pair of festoon

From colorful memories

Strewn in green:



I will crown your head

Like wreath



Where the memories

Would always remain.


The other,

I’d wear like garland,
Around my neck,

It’s pendant

Rests on my chest


Where love

  3. Geraldine,

    It is hard to balance the many elements of life that make us whole, like between the job that would put food on our tables and our passion that nourishes our hearts and souls. In my efforts never to give up my passion, I write words in my mind all the time, poetry is the air I breath. and I always feel suffocated if I don’t put them down on paper or in this case post them here in my web nook. Writing poetry is like a respirator for me so I could survive the pressures of work, the harsh world and the loneliness inside me. ‘Tis pure magic when I’m able finish a poem in between those labored breathing, each poemm sustains me until another poem is completed which I compose inside my head non stop.

    I wish you well.

    ~ Jeques

  5. I too share your thoughts from my keyboard. To be able to share ones innermost passions and dreams to such a wide audience, is something I would’ve never dreamed of 5 years ago. Wonderful Gemma spoke to me and with encouraging words, I put it to post.

    Your words show a man gifted with true passion, a rarity in my world, so it is a pleasure and a gift to read online. A world I wouldn’t have if it wasn’t for the blog. I stay secluded in my little world of bliss, just sharing words and thoughts of kindred spirits around the world.

    I am happy and content with what I have accomplished and can see that you are in that realm of magic too.

    Be well and keep writing such beautiful thoughts.
