Moments of quiet desperation

Words of wisdom and resilience…check out her other beautiful words and paintings.

Freedom's Place


Look past the smile

Upon my face

And see the real woman

My pain is real as

Yours is too

The hurt for both of us

But smile instead

And cry no more

Its easier to hide

Succumb not I

There is not time

For pity is the end

Instead we live

And love and laugh

Those moments to ourselves

And once in time

We have a moment

Of quiet desperation

Look up, look out

I’m moving on

I’ll not look past

For time is short

Here in this place

The future looks ahead.

A little bit about moi: I am a mom, a nana, a sister, a woman, a friend, a human being…a youth counsellor, Family Life Educator. I have been working in the helping profession for over 25 years and volunteered in various capacities from youths to seniors. Tournesol is my nom de plume for haiku and other Japanese form poetry here at Tournesoldansunjardin I hope you enjoy reading through my daily waka. I also have another blog "Stop the Stigma" where I may stand on my soapbox now and then and hope it will become a place to drop in and share or comment on issues important to you. In that vein this could be a great way to learn from each other. Namaste!
