“Winds in the east, mist coming in. Like somethin’ is brewin’ and about to begin. Can’t put my finger on what lies in store, but I fear what’s to happen all happened before.” Mary Poppins (P.L. Travers)

“Childhood slips like sand through a sieve … and all too soon they’ve up and grown, and then they’ve flown.” Bert in Mary Poppins (P.L. Travers)

“All of this has happened before, and it will all happen again.” Peter Pan (JM Barrie)

“The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease for ever to be able to do it.” Peter Pan (JM Barrie)


Flying, flying, flying,

Metaphor for soaring,

Wandering, Wondering,


New Things,

Never give up,

Knowing that the wheel of life

Keeps spinning, whirling, cycling

Through phases, birth

life, death, rebirth, life, death, rebirth.

Resurrection in new life.

Rebirth of new seedlings,

From old fermented compost.

Hope is ever present,

Forever spiraling upward, ascending and

Descending to catch the stagnant that needs oxygen.

Stir up the clay to mold a new Spirit.

Clear the waters,

Stir up some currents.

Blow breath into seemingly inert matter.

Feel the fire of passion and compassion.

Get to the heart of the matter.

Make some waves.

Catch some tradewinds and fly.

Cosmic Spirit moves.

Hope waits on the hopeful

not on the dead.
