A PRICKLY PROBLEM.
I'm fed up with your cacti plants,
They may be green and tough,
But the flowers only last a day
And I have had enough.
The prickly pear is in the bin.
The rest are yet to follow.
It's them or me my own true love.
I find them hard to swallow.
They like it hot, well so do I.
I am a hot-house flower.
So my love, just throw them out!
Those prickly plants with power.

With a high pitched shriek
They launch themselves into a new found freedom.
A freedom of the air, a freedom of flight.
Building their knowledge of airflows and
Catching their own prey.
Their parents look on
Knowing they have fulfilled their task.
A task that will begin again next Spring
With a new clutch of eggs.

I gallop away across the fields
on a strong horse, although he yields.
The wind caressing my hair and face.
Horse's mane flowing at the pace.
Galloping on, feeling free as a bird,
on a powerful animal from the herd.
Galloping onwards on a steady course.
Body and soul at one with the horse.
Galloping onwards, galloping fast,
quickly into the future, leaving the past.

WHEN A LIFE IS TAKEN.
When a life is taken
And the heartbeat fades away
The essence is still there.
It remains in the hearts and minds
Of the living,
The family, the friends, the associates.
The emotions of love, sadness and grief,
Followed by the questions of why, how, when.
The agony of being torn apart from a loved one,
But the peace of knowing that there is another time,
A spiritual existence
In a higher realm.
A realm of light, love and tranquillity,
A place where there is no more pain.
For the life that has been taken.
So when the heartbeat fades away,
Remember that they are in God’s Paradise.
