I tell myself

I tell myself
when I have reached
a place I call
or good, or safe,
or better,
then all will be
And yet there is
no place like this,
no perfect goal
to reach,
just moments
on the path,
as life evolves
as me.

Within myself

Within myself

Distant Seas, Oil on Canvas, 2010, Roslyn Ross.

Within myself the gathering
is always to be  seen,
of who I am and who you know,
and who I want to be.
And then there is the mother,
the wife and daughter too,
the sister and the lover,
the writer and the friend.
And yet within the crowding,
there is eternal I,
who gathers me unto itself;
creates eternal Soul.

Not much time for writing, just time for poetry and painting

Sea and Stone

Sea and Stone, Oil on Canvas, 2011, Roslyn Ross.

The sea in silent lick lays waste,
to stone's eternal self,
and in the drag and suck of wave,
drinks deep of rock's old soul.
