by Valerie Dearling

Those who nurse and

all who care,

are always needed


Sympathetic and

just kind

healing flesh and

fragmented mind.

Kindly words may

touch the soul

and help the damaged

to feel whole.

Positive thoughts

and physical aid

may heal the sick

and those afraid.

Medical care

has its place

alongside nature's

healing grace.

by Heather Atta

I walked towards silence

And found me the night

With its soft blinding shadows

A darkness

So bright

I felt its black


Its rich

Silky skin

Swept slowly

With eased bliss

And drank it


Such depth

And such wonder

By grace

Freely mine

An instance

To ponder

And praise

The divine
