pretty whytes

pretty whytes out in the rain
holding on to each moment
until winter begins,

with heads honor of those who served, serve now and will serve

with heads bows
a world of tears
for those wounded
and those no longer
with heads bowed
in sweet release
this lull between wars...
we all pray for peace.

veterans day

they stormed the beaches
on that cold gray day.
they did not know what to do
nor what to say....
they ran straight ahead into enemy fire
friends around them shot dead
such scenario dire.
yet fought they did
for the freedoms they believe.
we are thankful for those who made it
and for those who did not, we grieve.
for without these heroes
we could not type these words
stand for that which matters
have our voices heard.

if we work hard and pray,
perhaps one day all wars
will go away

we love with all our hearts and commit with every fiber of our being...the joys we feel, immense, the sorrows deep, the anxieties...profound...if only in school we learned LIFE not the readingwritingrithmatrix that don't add up

when young

when young i dreamed of  a home
could be like this
with welcoming arms
and nature's kiss.


behind the daily,
the divine.

embrace those you love with joyous abandon.
do not judge
do not over think...
just love

About Me

My photo
i am older than dirt and proud of it!!!! i have managed to incorporate my eternal woodstock nation spirit with the high tech 21st century world. i am an artist/writer, who dabbles in rhyme, and, sometimes, reason. my passions are my husband, who is truly the wind that ruffles my sails, animals rights, yoga...waking up in the morning. i find inspiration in too many things to list, and far too many more to remember. sketching, watercolor painting,poetry and photography are my ways of expressing joy and gratitude. from living with a chronic illness, i have learned the beauty of each day, and treat each as another sun salutation, and another chance.
