Unexpected by Jacqueline Nash

Unexpected

Love often comes when least expected
when it does, do not reject it;
give love a chance.

Magic by Jacqueline Nash

Magic

You took my hand
as we walked on the sand
The sea breeze blew
through our hair
Sun so bright
shone golden light
& there was magic
in the air

Not Sure When I’ll Be Back

My blogs, twitter etc. are all going to have to be put on hold for the time being and not sure when I’ll be back. I don’t normally speak about personal stuff on social media but felt I had to explain why I was doing this.

My husband’s cancer has returned and we are not sure where it is all going. What we do know is that it will involve a lot of ongoing treatments over the next few months. On top of this, I have elderly parents with no end of health problems who depend on our help for their day to day needs. My father is more or less completely immobile and cannot be left on his own, my mother had a double mastectomy three years ago and at present is waiting for results of a biopsy. To put it mildly, I am finding it really difficult holding it all together.

Over the last three years it is my writing that has kept me going, kept me sane. At the moment I just don’t seem to be able to get my head together. My concentration isn’t good at the best of times but at present I have the concentration of a gnat. Obviously, at the moment I have to give my husband Brian my full attention and we are having to sort out emergency strategies for my parents.

I would like to thank everybody for visiting, liking and commenting and hope it won’t be too long before I come back.

Wheel by Jacqueline Nash

This micropoem evolved from one of my poems on my Jacqueline C Nash Poetry blog called Winter’s End.

Wheel

I had expected so much
more than this;
But the wheel has turned,
my life hanging
between the spokes
as it moves towards
Winter’s end.

Absent by Jacqueline Nash

This micropoem is loosely based on a poem I wrote called Goosebumps which can be found on Jacqueline C Nash Poetry

Absent

I rouse from sleep
Sense your body close to me
Feel you stroke my hair
I turn to face you
To embrace you
But you are not there

Trees by Jacqueline Nash

Trees

They stand
like skeletons
trees bared
stripped of
leaves,
limbs reaching
to the skies
awaiting the
magic Spring
weaves.

Earth’s Secret by Jacqueline Nash

Earth’s Secret

The cold
bleak earth
a secret keeps
Incubating life
that beneath
it sleeps
When warm days
arrive in Spring
Earth
will reveal
everything
