Poetry, writing,and music are at the heart of Charmaine's loves. Not to forget swimming in the ocean,walking and wildlife.


Sometimes You Feel Like a Salmon and Sometimes You Don’t

The silent darkness

begins to recline from the corners

leaving one’s eyes

to rest upon the shade

of grey to brilliant white

Dew drops hang fragilely

Blades of grass yawn languidly

Leaves and branches

unfold their nightly sojourn

to subtlety reach outwardly

to the promise of being stroked

by the passers-by

Dew droplets hanging from the early morning blades of grass

Freshness and life

are being celebrated once more

Go and start your day

Touch the trees

the water

the air and the soil

Know everything carries a purpose

worthy of love

honour and respect

Just like you

Read your direction

from the snaps of branches

Follow the padded footprint

Stay connected to the flow

Today become the bravado

of the Hero

Impossible odds will

reveal hidden abilities

you could never have imagined

Let your heart

tell you

the pathway to follow

even when it scares you

Following a pathway

Walking path you never thought of

some may travel with you

and some will fall away

If the call to travel far away?

Honour your ancestors and culture

and immediately you will be home

Reach out to that part

of your mind

That reflects the nobility

the purity

of your Higher Mind

this will carry you beyond your fears

that freeze you still

Believe in Yourself

You can handle it

If your ideas stand you alone

The unlikeliest will prove

to be your friends

Keep stepping forward determinedly

Keep believing in yourself

Don’t be afraid

of solitude

as clarity and power

grows in spells

Your thirst may

cause you to climb

the trees up high

in order to feel satisfied

While you do this

you won’t know

that you bring calm

within the imperfect storm

Believe in possibilities

Make Time for Downtime
Make Time for Downtime | Source

Makes sure you have downtimes

to enjoy your dreams

and just to be

To be at the pause

between the in breath

and the out breath

you are given a moment

to open the treasure chest

of hidden truths

You are the calm

You are the possibilities

Have I Ever Swum Against the Grain?

      Yes, it can be very much like that Elijah-"when destiny calls you perform or die working towards that goal like a Salmon".

      But when it's time to swim back to your roots, feeling like swimming against the tide is not a choice, it's a must, so be the salmon and fight the currents seemingly working to prohibit your accomplishing it which makes you that much the stronger.

      If I may add that on the tail end. When destiny calls nothing else matters, perform or die working toward that goal like the salmon.

      Magnificently explained, Thank you, Charmaine.
