The Moon’s companion
Venus floats in the early dawn
Watching, observing

 Senses ignited
Fueled by the present moment
The here and the now

Smoothness to the eye
The ghost gum’s powerful call
Touch being beckoned


Kerry Takagaki is a lover of life, optimizing each moment because it is fleeting, never to be had again. She has a varied background but always seems to grounded in being the teacher; nursing, parenting, English language, yoga, meditation, Ikebana. A free spirit that’s soaring and quietly roaring with a hope that each life is lived to its fullest and most precious capacity through connection to self, others and the planet.  www.kerrytakagaki.com
