I woke up this morning feeling great. The gloomy introspection of winter is easing more and more. As if to offer their support, bunches of yellow daffodils are blooming along the garden path to cheer on my soaring spirits with the coming of Spring. It’s just around the corner…not long now! This got me thinking of my poem ‘Winding Roads’ which I first posted in 2016!! Where have those 3 years gone? Here’s the poem. Keep in mind the lumpy hills of Scotland, denuded of trees by wealthy landowners over the centuries to make way for livestock farming. Such a shame, although the hills do have a stark beauty. We see them as they really are without any adornment. So this weekend let’s try to see the ‘real’ beauty in everyone and everything we come across. Have a wonderful time. Namaste, Anita. 😁🌳🐂
Winding Roads by Anita Neilson
Winding roads and lumpy hills
lined by crowds of daffodils
cheering on the weary traveller
“Not long now!” they cry.
stand strong and serene
a majestic backdrop to this wonderful scene:
ochre heather and grey-coloured scree
trees clinging on at odd degrees
ancient rocks clad in moss against the cold
respite for travellers in days of old.
We are intruders in this landscape
yet it seems a part of me –
our shared heritage and history.
But this land belongs to all, not some,
softly winding roads leading us home.

Here’s the blurb…… Continue reading
Do you have a friend whose advice you trust implicitly? Are they on the physical or spiritual plane? For some, this friend may be what they call their guardian angel; for others, it may be God; for others still it may be a friend with whom they have almost a psychic link. Whichever meaning you give to “trusted friend and guide”, my hope today is that you may continue to be guided by their intuition, wisdom and love in everything you do! Enjoy my poem. Much love, Anita.
Angel by my Side
When I stop doing and sit quietly
just being, I feel you by my side
trusted friend and guide.
Towering over me
your wings enfolding me
in a loving embrace
as a parent to a child.
My scalp tickles at your touch
causing smiles of surrender
all over this body.
Such benevolence! Such grace!
Your breath pours over me
soothing my muscles
loosening my joints
quietening the mind
unlocking the soul.
May your light flow through me
sending healing to all.
Give me strength to work with you
in service to all.
Be by my side always
to catch me when I fall.
