Elvis Mama Liked the Roses

Oh, mama liked the roses she grew them in the yard
But winter always came around and made the growing way too hard
Oh, mama liked the roses and when she had the time
She’d decorate the living room, for all us kids to see
When I hear the Sunday bells ringing in the morning
I remember crying when she used to sing
Oh, mama liked the roses but most of all she cared
About the way we learned to live
And if we said our prayers

You know I kept the family bible
With a rose that she saved inside
It was pressed between the pages
Like it had found a place to hide

Oh, mama liked the roses in such a special way
We bring them every mother’s day
And put them on her grave
Oh, mama liked the roses mmmm
Mama liked the roses

Love to all you Mothers
With the present time gifts
From those little wonders
With tiny feet and little hands
Able to pour milk on frosted flakes
And leave behind a broken crayon or two
Then present you with their masterpiece
And sweet sloppy kisses, as the bowl spills
...on the bed~

Love to all you Mothers
With now introspective children
Who once ran without shoes
And shouted I wuv you's
And stuck out thier tounges...
Now, givers of tokens from saved chore money
Reading directions to bake you a cake
A different delivery, but still delivered ~

Love to all you Mothers
Who's children are nearly grown
And left house and home to make it on their own
The call from the independent, on how to make your stew
The steadily increasing time between calls
But treasured when they come followed by I love you
In this time, Some will be forgotten, but not all ~

Love to all you Mothers
Who's babies now have babies of their own
Who will have your doorbell ringing and mailbox full
Who will get a call or lunch or sent a gift in the post
Who will be there still to offer a word of advice
For those children, now with children
Who's little hands will draw the cards and make the tray
...To spill the milk in their bed~

Enjoy for Sunday...I wont be here..have fun!

What lovely mommy poems you wrote
Here on these pages of blue
You left 'em for us to love them
Hallmark ain't got nothin' on you!

I saw that a piece of him was standing to attention

Too funny!!!!

That is sweet Autumn fantacy....

Sure I wrote it Wabbit...didn't you notice I got my 'O' & 'U' mixed up when I spelled, tongue? ...(if not more...I don't check and I should...but off the top of my head and not worring about it, is the most fun!)

Have a great weekend, folks!

Happy Mothers Day!

As a translucid flower sheds it's petals onto the crimson floor scattering to becomes dusts in the wind
You'll find the one for you it's destined to begin
At each step we reflect what will echo and eternity to the masses
Love kindly with open hearts till you share the knowledge from those that passes
Each harmonic beat of your open heart will bring you closer to whom you were destined to love
Don't fight it, it will happen this you cannot fight back or shove
Lean in on my ear and whisper what your heart desires
As flame leads to cascendance and becomes open fire

TIME is,
Too slow for those
who wait,
Too swift for those
who fear,
Too long for those
who grieve,
Too short for those
who rejoice,
But for those who
Time is eternity …

I so enjoyed every ones good writes over the last few days!
The world really does go on while I'm away!

Here in the Carolina's big storms made their way and some too close for comfort!
I came up with this, one of those nights...was not all bad!


In the far away
of baritone rumbles
and the hint of quenching rain
and the fleeting gleams of quickened lighting
muffled quiet over distant plains
flowing in the path of currents
with the howler wind it came
tiny droplets forming curtains
on my windowpane
Deep in the throat of thunder, shutters
after blinding strikes
rattling the bones of shelters
reasoned for the candle light
Humbled to acceptance in the awe that came
finding refuge in my dwelling
bound in blanket to my mane
My child eyes anticipating encores from above
and the washing of the rainfall
All of this I Love!

It's OK, Wabby!
They are not that bad
I have never had one
Hurt me like my dad....(ok, that was terrible)
(But they are kinda loud like he was!) ha!
They do both have the same "after effect" ending
If you can forgive the arrogant intrusion
...that devastation is the allusion
It may break you down, but not keep you there
A town, like a person can be built up better than ever
I swear!

Also.....don't worry! The odds are in your favor, we all love it in the South and as a kid, I lived for the tunderboomers!

This was a wierd response, I know wabby...guess it had to do with what we were talking about.....

Seems so fragile.
She is emotional to a fault.
Always must have full attention.
Crying is her invention.

No No No-way, Wabby!
I don't think this gal is from this century!
She makes us out to sound like wuses!
We are Queens and strong leaders
With impeccable manners and direction
We are the pillars of our families
And nurtures of all
We are feeders of hearts, home and hearth
We do not feign weekness to gets us some love!
But we can look fabulous fixin' our car
No No, Faye Jones must be knowing us from afar!

Yeah...Miss Faye I do not wish to put down
But one of these Bells I have never found
Maybe she is from a another Southern state
And maybe this state, I can't relate

My appologies to Miss Faye!

Because you ask, I shall say
Of Pagans and others
Who believe they've found their way
Have found only part
Of the truth, and they play
A very dangerous game
And eternity, hold at bay
Taken in pieces the words they display
Sound wonderous if one lives in their way
But the sum of all parts are needed to live
And part of the truth is not what God gives~

Anyone can talk the talk!

The Meeting Story

Of every wedding
is asked the question
from the guest thereof...
Where was this happy meeting
of these two in love?
Was it on a steamship
at a bar or train?
Was it an introduction
from a realtive or friend?
Was it a chance encounter
at the grocery store?
Or was it on a bowling team
when one gave a higher score?
Perhaps it was at a party
or jumping from a plane?
Maybe they were children
jumping puddles from the rain?
But it will be said they were fishing
in a big blue pond
And after months of talking
to each other, they grew fond
Soon they got together
and very nicely played
and when their love was certain,
planned a wedding day
So now you all have it
This is the dish....
The Hunter and the wabbit
made a special wish
And in the pond of plenty
each caught the biggest fish!

The innocence of children
and corruption all around
In this they take notice
Even on the playground
Just in the trying
to play with other kids
Shamefull grownups scamper
putting distance...that just the way it is
spreading fear that wont be lasting
if we teach our blessed little ones
to embrace everyones uniqueness
As we share the same son/sun!

Sorry that happend to her, wabbit!

What is up with these slow post?....could it really be the thread size? I thought long was a good thing???

Yes, Wabbit....
Let's do it right now
Just leave a "MOVING NOTICE"
So our friends wont have a cow
Just perhaps we can move
Some of the last few post
To keep us all going
On your thread
Of which you are the host!

All right Dear Wabby
This thread it shall go
When it stops...
Nobody knows
But if it must end
That will bite!
Then we will have to
Begin again
It's only right!
And whatchoo mean
To busy you'lle be?
You both have twice the help
In eachother, you see?
We will have questions
You will want to check and see
What's up in our lives
This is not just for daters, geez
It's also an outlet for writer and posers
Poets, rhymers and deep thinkers
You know in the night
When you can not sleep..
You will head here to have a peek!

Wabbit, far as I know threads don't disappear, but when they get about 300 pages they won't load up anymore, and you have to start a part two. I thought you knew, and were going to start a part two when you got married....

First to last is a two part just can't post to the part one anymore...

Let's lighten things up up up!


Perfectly portly was the poultry
Pecking at the ground
Fattened from the scrapings
Of the compost on the ground
Feathers flutter at the farmer
As he came around...
Made his choices
Among the noises
Then did drive them into town
At the diner was delivered
Feisty fowl then bound
And dealt with in a timely manner
Yes, those hens were crowned!
Soon the smell of deep fried dinner
Lingered as it browned
Fingers licked by all the patrons
Nowhere did a person frown!

Hey! That's good news brizo!!!!!

An individual who sees people for good,
and finds beauty when it's not clear to see.
If you ask me who that person is....
its the man i aspire to be.'s where ones find someone as a mentor and aspire to that level!

Wabby for your fried chicken, grab that Cast Iron....some chicken parts.....flour, salt and pepper and crisco shortning! You got it babe....but have to make some gravy from the dippin's too, to sop yo biscuits in!

Queenie Has a lot of catching up to do do!

I parceled out a wish for you
That lay within my heart
Of making all the roads you travel
Smooth as you depart
Of easy closing of some doors
Though no need for lock and key
For all the memories left behind
Also made you, what I see
I pray the Lord above will hold you
And those you hold dear
And rain upon you many blessings
Throughout all your years
I'm sending all my best to you
In hopes that you may know
The love you find in your new life
Will guide you in your growth
And the blessing of serenity
From the only one
Who can calm all worlds worries
When the day is done
And as you lay you down to sleep
(After kissing children's rosy cheeks)
God will keep your family from harm
As you dream in your husbands arms ~

When it comes,
(and it is soon)
safe travel
and enjoy your life...
as Hunter's wife!
