    when someone passes on
    who had an massive influence and input into community life
    life feels bewildered empty in a desert of barren bare land
    we wander on reflecting on the teachings and partnerships created through the community friend
    trying to think on eyes are tired from tears yet in our hearts has to be a desire
    to follow on from where new ideas arise It is hard we know no rush !!patience too

      Very true Fiona – and I’m sure we will all carry on thinking and reflecting and looking for ways to follow on from all that Graham began.

        took time off today
        as feelings of gratefulness gave way
        thanks to being part of something big
        yet lamenting of weather and ways of waking up late
        move on from barren land to a place of new ‘contentment peace sought
        all for now
