2020

2020 a clear vision
perhaps to make
the right decisions.
2020 a place to see
perhaps the goodness
in humanity
2020 a time to reflect
that the best has not
happened yet.
2020 clarity
love, peace for all
and harmony.

do you see we,
as we see each other
most lovingly.

unbowed

unbowed by winter's cold
the inevitable of growing old.
as we complain of aches pains
and all the rest.
to be here to experience all this...
we are blessed.

if i could

if i could have
do not know
if i would have.
mindset in descent
while the rest
in ascent.
or perhaps in reverse
not meaning to be
terse.
in this bundle of noise
still one of the boys.

would it

would it be too much to ask
or perhaps a far too Brobdingnagian
task
to make 2020 a years of total kindness
and put all the years past of
cruelty behind us?

mr and mrs biggy


the biggys begin this brand new day
in their biggy usual way
sitting
warming up their bones
then off to make this
day their own!

dreamz

once upon a peaceful night
a dream
was finally achieved
kindness ruled where cruelty
once reigned
and in compassion all
believed.
the animals in their own way
gleefully rejoiced
at last the world
had heard their
voice.

once upon a butterfly and the moon

once there was a butterfly
who wanted to see how
high she could fly.
up into the air
approaching space
as the people below
looked up,
awe etched on each face.
the whole world watched
and waited with glee
as the  butterfly flew
so joyfully
higher and higher
the winged one did
soar,
as those on earth
could not see her anymore
they asked their friends and
neighbors, their families
could she be gone forever
no this cannot be.
the earth herself sighed
a breath so sweet
as all her children
gathered round her feet.
no guns, no fighting,
no partisan citizenry
only people united
in the butterfly's reverie.
and as she returned
from the moons welcoming
face,
the world of people
rejoiced
one loving place.

joy to a world that needs it

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

some things

some things cannot be tasted
by simple explanation
they live in the realm
of imagination.

lone

though it appears a loner i be
i still appreciate kind company
ones of feathers downy and soft
to keeps me moving positive
spirits soaring aloft.

we sit here watching you,
what a hoot.
dashing dans and danielles
on your daily commutes.
as your lives revolve around
the clock
we sit here plotting our own
little alfred hitchcock

the little girl dreamed

the little girl dreamed
of a string of pearls
whose love embrace
went all around
the world.
she closed her eyes and
felt that magic touch
of love we all need
so very much.

Dropples

Afraid to look
Magnified
Just the way
That i defied.
Integrity maintained
The cost is
Pained.

we are moments

we are moments before
our time is passed
each second an hour
each hour gone.
too fast.

even senior citizens cry

even senior citizens cry
not just because they
are afraid to die.
they cry because they
want to live,
love and be loved
find ways to forgive.
find a path forward
to inner and outer  health
seniors struggle, too
with sense of
self.

try

We try to find the bluest sky. Sometimes we can, sometimes we cry.

our blessings counted

as tensions mounted
our blessing counted
it is not what we lost
or how much the cost
if is what we found
when we looked around.
holidays can be quite trying and arduous, but they don't have to be. try not to dwell on that which cannot be altered or brought back. focus instead on that which can be created, enhanced or simply appreciated.

learning

learning enlightenment is time well spent.
kindness grows where the heart is sent.

when i need the sun

when i need the sun
when it is dark inside
the sadness comes
no place to hide
i look to what
our earth has given
and by those gifts
and beauty,
healing is driven.

if ever

if ever i falter
if ever i cry
if ever if ever
i decide not to try
if ever if ever
i turn slowly away
your love brings
me back.
each and every
day.

when

when it is time
and that time is soon
to fledge and find
a special room
to raise a family
of my own.
how quickly it seems
that i have grown.

About Me

My photo
greetings! 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.
