life for we gulls can
be kinda crappy
but we are strong,
tough and scrappy
so i sit here and enjoy
this little chill.
got much to do
but no much time
to be still.

she dances alone
because she can
it does not matter
if anyone else understands
perhaps it would be better
if they do,
then they could dance alone,
together, too

seasons greetings

spread love, peace and joy
to all far and near.
not just this time,
but for ALL of 
the year.


uno sits in this tree on
such a crispy day
winter looming

uno sits and observes
whenever change comes
he knows it well.

uno contemplates all
and takes stock
before he flies off
to rejoin his

little birdie three tree

little three on the
birdie tree
so nice of thee
to pose
for me!

heartfeel beauty

as we all are, heartfelt
as heart feels beauty
sends beauty
beauty is love
and love makes all things

little dove peace tree

i am not a real dove
as one can see
but here i live
on this peace tree
praying for all beings
and humanity.
a sparkling presence
of kindness
flickers in the sun
as joy, love, health
and happiness
shines bright
on everyone.

garage eagle puffpuff

it is cold outside
here i roost
wish a friend or two
would stop by
and give my spirits
a boost.


we are scrappy
we are tough
most times our lives
are very rough.
but over such trivia
we have no time to mull.
we gonna survive
cause we are gulls!


we who
are all struggling to find joy this holiday season. we have lost some we love and we miss them. we worry and stress over some still here with us and feel so alone. gratitude is not seeking us out, it seems, but we can find much to be grateful for, though that task is truly brobdingnagian. we have a wonderful crew of peeps here. we are as one and as one we stand together..we have companion animals, here and/or in our hearts. we have the greatest gift of all...the capacity to is this gift, forever unwrapped by kindness, that sustains and sustains us all.

So sweet a dream

So sweet a dream
Complete to find
With loving hearts
And peace of mind.


in utter tranquility
a taste of civility.

we are aware

As in the sand some bury their heads,
Innocents are tormented and dead
But for the cruel there is
No place to go.
We will share and
Let all the world


i am sooo big
as you can see
nobody as big
or as cute
as me...
the leader of all

i am not

i am not asked
i do not know
where i am headed
but fly
i go.

a toll of sorts

depression is real.

depression does not go away because you want it too..

depression does not discriminate...and takes no prisoners.

depression kills...the soul, the spirit and the very lives it possesses.

depressions breaks the hearts of those who care.

please, at holiday times.. remember and support those who are depressed, as holidays can magnify the isolation that is depression.

thank you.


alone you seek
the answers
from others
they are inside you
just take
a peek

in sunshine colors
we look within
to share the joy
we feel,
a gentle vision
no need


between the sky
the walls of trees
alone her counsel kept
but dreams or more
as she slept.

what can one see

what can one see
as snow is falling
lights ahead
some hope,

so tall she stands
as winds and snow
try out their hands.
seasons come
seasons pass

is built to

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


alone we are to face the clock
the time that ticks the time
that tocks
alone we are but if
we flock
perhaps we as we roll
we can also

squabella sits
on this chilly day
in her concrete
not much to say.
she has grown so fast
life works that way.
soon perhaps she
will fly away.


we live in this swarm
we appear to conform
but truth be we have
our own mettle
in each of our

little red rose, knows

little red knows feels the
chill around her
little red knows
that for her,
this is how it goes
so she soldiers on
one petal at a time
for however long
until the end

our cat boxes clean

how do we view our mortality
with fear, anger, sorrow or perhaps equanimity.
do we eagerly inhabit each strata of age.
as our bodies slowly surrender,
do we adapt a little "sage'
do we walk with disappointment,
heads sadly bowed.
or do we embrace what lies before us,
spirits, uncowed.

passenger, seated

yes the world seems safer this way,
but it is much more fun to go out
and play.

the clarity disparity

together as one.
no pushing the other
should they disagree.
there is room on these
for all.
we learn from those
of different minds
validation is just
an empty echo
of ones own preconceptions.
the clarity of disparity
is the one truth
that remains.

what is beauty

what is beauty
but that which fills
the heart.
that warms those places
puts smiles on faces.

we flock together

we flock together.
we fly so high.
we let the weather
pass us by.

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.
