Fay Slimm.





Where tides of low spirit roll in waves of dejection
my vessel of distracted conscience

heaves and moors
on shores which reach to unforeseen heights

of realization
as allurement appears

and a squall
is where my perplexity lies in passion's reflection.


Where the dull of my life meets storm of destiny,
in a boat of disorientated misplacement

is where I am

and tossed it seems by dropped anchor forever.


Where mind's sense leads my questioning heart
to the spot where attraction rises,

waking wild oceans of floundering resolve

is where seduction convention defies 

because new love

           has begun a song that longs to leave its mark.

      smashing my dear.. a super distraction from the hum drum of the moment... my moment that is..... hence I'm off to my own patch of ocean and shore... not too far from your own methinks......


      • Fay Slimm.

        You think right for they are no more than a whisper away those two patches dear friend and spending shared time by the ocean is so needed at times............. glad you enjoyed the read............

          I forgot its school holidays and everywhere is filled with families and holiday makers....

          A fine write Fay. People wish they could find distraction from my singing, but there's no cure for it! heehee.

            You have just inspired my poem for tomorrow which i gladly dedicate to you and is my response to this marvellous piece today.

            Let your heart sing like a bird perched next to a cage who's door is now open wide.

              I was totally mesmerised by this,
              May that song go on forever.

              • Fay Slimm.

                A truly meaningful piece of writing young Fay. I am a trifle Low today and your poem finishing with it's optimistic outlook was inspirational. thank you

                • Fay Slimm.

                  Do hope by now you are feeling better my friend and glad you found a bit of inspiration from reading the poem. Sometimes we all need a lift and if my little verse did that for you I am highly delighted.

                  Some write - must read it again.

                  • Fay Slimm.

                    Ooooh thanks so much for the first read and if there is a second well that is an honour dear Michael - - warm thanks indeed thrilled that you found my little verse worthy.

                  • Suresh

                    I am like a dingy in a storm, hopelessly lost, but not in love.....

                    • Fay Slimm.

                      Yes to be in a dingy lost in a storm can be a bit scary Suresh - - hope you find a quiet port soon and a big thank you for the visit and read.

                    • Silkseduction

                      This is so beautiful- well done!

                        Really appreciate your visit and read and thank you too for the lovely comment

                      • dusk arising

                        I came back to your poem tonite for a re-read and i have to say its really a moving write. I know exactly where it comes from and you convey a predicament more delicately and poetically than i could ever aspire to.
                        Hence it simply has to be a favourite.

                        • Fay Slimm.

                          Ah - you are more than kind and thank you so much for including the piece in your faves.........

                        • ANGELA & BRIAN

                          HOLA : Angela here ! Thanks for caring & sharing FAY. Love your analogy between *A Boat adrift* and the DISTRACTIONS we face every day. I have been sailing here most weekends and the winds can be very unpredictable and Brian has warned me never to go out on my own ! There are many other distractions as well. My JOB is all about being focussed and giving the right advice & treatment to my Clients who want full & pain free MOBILITY asap. I also have a responsibility to my 5 female Maori Students to teach them how to understand X-rays ~ Response to touch & flexings and the ability to make the exercise & recovery Programme specific and appropriate to each client ! There is no room for distraction ! As PHYSIOS we have to be a Jack of All Joints & Muscles and Master of ONE - such as Hand - Foot - Leg - Arm - Neck - Spine ~ Pelvis etc. For the last two years I have specialised on the Hand ! Manual dexterity is so so important as you know ! It will take another Year of Study & Practice to be certified as a Manual Physiotherapist and assigned to specific patients as well as a General Physio & also a General Tutor. I guess about 1 in a 100 Physio Clients need specialist treatment with Manual Physiotherapy. There have been several successful HAND TRANSPLANTS but I have not worked with any ! My own hands are very important in my Job so I always wear light gloves when Gardening and heavy gloves when using Power Tools etc !

                          Blessings & Peace to You & Yours
                          Love in the Spirit ~ ANGELA & BRIAN
