reflection of past year into the future...Page 36 of 66    (26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49, 50, 51, 52, 53, 54, 55, 56, 57, 58, 59, 60, 61, 62, 63, 64, 65, 66)
Today is Good Friday
As if it really meant something to me
But I do remember yesteryear
The significance of Lent and sacrifice
I remember kneeling before the stations of the cross
And as a child, I felt the penance of Jesus Christ
But I am older know and have witnessed the hypocrisy of so called Christians
Maybe my heart is just hard
But I do rejoice in the spirituals and hymns
I imagine that if there is a heaven, we do not talk but just sing in harmony
At least I hope so.
One thing I do miss about yesteryear
Is seeing all the pretty girls in church with their bonnets
I miss seeing that as I would miss seeing the daffodils in spring


*Hey Rose, hope all is well...xxoo

Its an issue of occupancy in the written codes. She probably received Section 8 before the boyfriend and most likely his additional child. The goat is the part that doesnt make sense- maybe a city/town ordinance. Section 8 is designed to help low income usually single parent households. She violated her qualifications for assistance.
They are very specific and it is actually a very difficult assistance program to actually recieve due to years long waiting lists for available housing.

Power to you for trying to figure it out though. The government has a strange way of doing things, and every state has different Section 8 guidelines. I know of quite a few families that recieve this kind of assistance after losing their homes to foreclosure and job lay offs in the county where I used to live.

Forgive me Rose for this recycled poem. But I can't beat it to death.

Happy Birthday
From me to you
Thoughts wander away
Like footprints in the dew
Time does blend
In the daily grime
Sunset will send
Searching in night time
Let it be said
There once was a day
Gathered and bled
And washed away
The past has faded
But time does bend
The light that created
And never will end

PS....Bosco wants to meet Daisy....hehe

Well as I live
and as I breathe
do these old eyes now me deceive?
what do I spy hiding behind yonder prose
ah, a gentle delicate, fiery R0se

How are you Sweetie, long time no see

Take Care

Roses are read
and Rosie's are kind
you turn over rocks
never know what you'll find

Glad I know which rocks
to flip to find you
the forum's fair Rosie
How do you do?

Just stoppin' by to say hi, Rosie. Sounds like you been getting around, girl. Getting rains in the desert. Weeping at your absence, I suspect.

Hugs to you

Oh Dear
an even though....
these can be as sunlight on fallen snow
or a firefly as he twilight glows
how can we ever truly know

Without a clue
the perpetual state of what to do
this crazy world spins away
night lightens up and turns into day

footsteps sway
unsure of where to go or what to say
was it ever meant to be this way
night turns up and banishes day

then I hear an old simple song
message clear and lyric strong
a smile fixes quite firm across my face
maybe the worlds not such a bad old place

Is this a place?
to lay life’s waste
down for a bit
slow down unwind
from fast paced time

is this a place?
to lay my head
from bewildered confusion
a slower shade of grey
fading from dismay

is this a place?
where change speaks silence
where everything “is what it is”
while nothing remains the same
a place to become insane

is this a place?
to come undone
trade pain for fun
relax from
the cold steel rail
remove a smile from its veil
a heaven within hell

is this a place?
a place to hesitate
together
forever
as
one
in a place beyond the sun

is this a place?
to truly feel
complete in exchange
when loves rearranged
back into the 'real'

a place to truly feel
like being truly YOU



‘pssst
do you hear’
the winds whisper still
blowin change in the wind

‘pssst
do you hear’
the winds whisper still
blowin change in the wind


‘just beyond our reach’

good to read you here again, rosie


reflection of past year into the future....
birthday just passed
giving me thought on this task
insight? perhaps
it's been a crazy year
seemed overwhelmed with both
courage and fear
took some huge steps
to make a new home
to find all the curtains
to transfer the phone
then needed to work
all the time just to pay
felt like i'd given my life away
selling out each day
with no time to play
until the shift came
until the gift came
stepping back
found the crack
in my sanity
ever since that
been climbing back
to a better reality
based on less fantasy
and probably
possibly
more maturity

■A little Longer: Let me live a little longer let me have a little peace let me climb another mountain high enough to feel the breeze. Let me stay a little longer Thinking back to times before. Parting ways can be a sorrow and a little longer is a little more. I'll just take a little journey staring straight down at the floor. At the faces in the windows of my past once before. Let me sleep a little longer let me have some pleasant dreams let me feel a little stronger almost bursting at the seams. Let me think of something different let me drink another beer. Let my rhyming be consistent and let me get on out of here.....By me. Im Donnie

where did everyone go
did some fade away
like my blue jeans
still in my closet
even though
they dont fit anymore

where did everyone go
how I miss better days
of poetry posting
with excitement
all too quickly
one after the other

many are missed here~

oh for sure, dear woman,
where did everyone go indeed?
yes, there are some wonderful new seeds
sharing their passion for writing
making new connections, virtually,
also feeling each other more deeply....

but once upon a time
there were so many here
playing with haiku when there were three!
jumping from one to the next
couldn't think... could barely see
yet it was so much fun
playing here with so many....

where are you rosie?
and joro and grizz and manny?
where are you ice
and truthisee
and lovely and crazy hammie?

so many who've moved on
no longer sharing with us their energy
maybe a shift came to them finally
maybe the other side of the site
set them free...
or just something within changed
as it does naturally

ahhh rosie
been thinking 'bout you
wonderin' what you been up to
wonderin' if you're ok
if you found another place to play
if a wonderful man has come your way....

if you'd return one day
to write from you heart
write from your soul
write from your mind
your words don't grow old...

for your utmost honesty
and timeless beauty
shared with humility
received gratefully....

for your wisdom's voice
reminding us
we always have choice....

i miss you, it's true,
and all the others too
who have come through
this little haven for poetry
a place we can share
from wherever we be

raise you some bees
the gift of their honey
pets that keep buzzing
their hierarchy somewhat puzzling...

a whole bee community
especially for rosie
who's compassionate action
they'll love instantly....

and hopefully they'll thrive
in their beautiful hive
grateful for their owner
who's keeping them alive



dear rosie....wow, 'jazz in harlem before the storm'....must have been amazing.
are you back in the desert now? (from one extreme to the other) xo

'uber frugal' indeed
also my goal this new year's eve
to watch my pennies this coming year
to save for my son's upcoming wedding
to his sweetheart who's a perfect match
seemed destined that they would catch
each other's love...

i saw it when they began
and can see after all these years
it still flows in their blood for each other
as it does for my son-in-law and daughter...

new year's resolution....
perhaps it's soon to be my turn
to join in love once again with another
as it is with my eldest son and daughter
and their wonderful loving partners


happiest of new year's to you, rosie....your plans sound wonderful!!

To 1022......BTW sup darlin..long time no read......As always i enjoyed the writes here..

Pffffttttt to going back
where you are is where you should be
exactly
times remembered
to wish anew
will only erase what you knew
reveal in where you are
and scream to the past
kiss my ass
