It’s been a long time
Since I’ve been online
Minimal activity on social media
Offline is fine
The tranquility of my mind is sublime
Tranquility of being detached
Unaware of the goings on of others
Out of the loop
Simply living life as I should be
You may think this is my Reclusion
This is my
Love, Life & Poetry ~Jill Blackwood 2019
She came with a rare nervous Energy
She spoke with solid yet seasoned Authority
She taught with an exceptional Excellence
Hilary gave us more than we came for
More than we hoped to gain is what we received
A voice that had been silent inside me awoke in her presence
She humbly dilated my ego which encouraged me to share
This sharing then took me on a whole new journey….
One of discovery and disclosure…
As she grew confidence in her class
Her students confidence also grew
We shared more than we came to give
We learned more than we thought we would
We received more than we could ever imagine
The Seeds That Have Been Planted Now Grow Within Each & Every One of Us…. Including You!
Hilary, with your gift of teaching and being who you were BORN to be, through this medium – you inspire us! More than you will ever know….so please…continue to touch lives, to make that mark, be that baton of knowledged passed on so that we may all WIN!!
The world needs more of this energy!
Dedicated to ALL students of life and to Hilary Nightingale, My Wonderful ‘Level 2 Peer Mentoring’ Tutor!
So, Your weakness is my strength!!!
So how do we meet?
So…. we agree….Somewhere in the middle
And for a moment nothing else existed
The room, noise, people, the ambience slipped away and blurred into the background of our aura
We were not there for us…but
Even time took a side seat….& There was just you
It was just me
In that moment….it was just ‘we’
And it felt like eternity
So, my strength is your weakness
We meet in the middle somewhere
I wonder how this can be….
Is he really that into me?
Do I truly tremble at your touch?
Do I see our future in your eyes?
Did I feel your heart beat under my palm?
Or is it just me reflected in the sexy glaze of your stare?
Or is it me simply seeing what I want to see?
Or is it what he whispered inside me? 😉
(((no, it did not offend me)))
Or is it me being lightheaded, giddy, fuzzy?
Today, you speak to me and I hear pure poetry
Inspite of Tragedy and after Yesterdays Celebratory
As I replay your words today and listen
You say you will create time for me
You will make time for me
Like your finest masterpiece
With persistence and will
You remind me of the only contract we make
So… I will give my Patience and Understanding
As we exchange nuggets of wisdom
And let our pearls of time form on their own
As Life….it has to go on…
While we find out which room you May sleep in
This April..during showers that are due…
Yet remember this…
My Strength is made perfect in your weakness
And even though we both got alot going on
I have a silent wish n a sweet prayer
That somewhere in the middle
Of all of the Chaos
Somewhere we may meet and create moments
Moments that turn into memories
Oh….No rose smelling wind. (please) 🙂
Ahhh…..It’s Just Poetry!
