Colours of Life

Colours of Life


Some lives appear to be lived in Technicolor®

Others in palest gray

Do they denote shades of happiness

And do they change from day to day

Or perhaps they reflect personalities

Contentment, excitement, nervousness

Joy, hope, fear, fretfulness ~

It remains for the artist to decide

Which colours predominate

And which colours will override

Little Deaths

Little Deaths

Life is a journey
Cloaked in ambiguity
And Death is inescapable
Inevitable and unavoidable.

What then are ‘little deaths’?
Episodes of stress,
Major changes in our lives
That leave us feeling helpless.

Both big and little deaths
Leave us at our weakest,
Vulnerable, dependent,
Powerless and defenceless.

With help we can ride out
The storm of our emotions
Until tranquillity and harmony
Are restored to our integrity.


When I had almost finished the above
I was looking for a reference to sleep
as ‘little death’, and I came across this.
