Held by Love

Peacock Poetry

Every year for the past five years Andy and I hike to the little tree in an open valley where we buried some of my Dad’s ashes. It helps to have somewhere to go to over here to visit Dad and this year I felt very calm and held. Each year the weather is different and there are new things on the route, reminding us that life is in constant change and that there are always things to admire. Today’s poem was inspired to this year’s Mecca to Dad’s valley.

New Year Peace

Within the valley I am held

by warmth and love eternal

Protected by the deepest well

of guiding light paternal

The cherry tree is bare of leaves

but even in deep winter

I feel the calmness your soul breathes

Devotion; you can’t tint her

I’m here my darling, everyday

All you must do is feel it
