Thank you for your answer
It puts me more at ease
When someone steps in somewhere new
There's the desire to please.

Slip behind those silent eyes
of a long day passing
Leave behind the sunny sky's
of the daylight fading
Sweep the leaves of summer trees
- gather on a pile to burn
A life crawls then walks then runs
as if pulled to the end
Count today like yesterday
for quick they are tomorrow's, gone

Firelight dancing
I sit mesmerized
My mind blank
Tears welt my eyes
Sorrow overwhelms

Moonlit skies
Dew glistens on the grass
The wood crackles
Whipping flames lash
I am enchanted.

Just now!


Thunder cracked inside black sky's
Lightning flashed in furry high
A torrent rain in sheets blew heavy
Rotating clouds made threats ready
It soon raced on to growl and quip
leaving air wet and trees to drip
The place that takes the runoff rain
does look more like a puddle-lake
The yellow pollen that coated all
is washed away and leaving now
it floats on waters that move and drift
Now is calm to what was swift
As bird songs ring, I take a peek
Beautiful
Nature has a mean cleaning streak


Whew!...it was kinda scary...

Feeling blessed

An inner light
brightens my soul
a change is occurring
deep inside, I know
it is beyond me
a presented gift
patience and trust
now given to lift
A glow and warmth
I question not
I embrace a joy
I never bought
All of this
in it's natural state
I pray all one day
may too, relate
...and if you have
ain't it great!

Come look and see the moon, I say
~ yes, you've seen the moon before
Observe that branch and how it lays
before the clouds in shades that soar
~yes, you've seen the clouds before
See the contrast and the depth
and the brightness of this night
and how the haze illuminates
all this pleasure in our sight
I have never seen a night like this
A painters dream come true
A gift, presented for our view
~yes, it's all the same to you
As for me, I'll soak it deep
for every night is new for me
Funny how one can walk in life
even though, still be asleep...

Happy Easter All!

Chocolate bunnies missing ears
Folks in their Sunday best
Families gather for a feast
Dyed eggs are bright and hid
Basket handles on kid's arms
Remembrance of a saving grace
Kitchens ring of talk and laughter
Flowers in pastels, placed





Do I smell a slow cooked Spiral Hammmm???

BKS...and Jules...thanks for the writes and wishes. Let me extend the same in return to you both.

and Happy Easter to one and all!

Today is a day for rest,
yet, there is no rest for the wicked!
laundry to do,
and vacuuming too,
and the roast is in the oven!
with taters and greens
and a few ...obscenes!
tis a meal that I prepare,
with lots of thought,
and a missing pot,
just try it if ya dare!

ahhh....no way am I taking your pot, manny! (giggle)

wishing you all a wonderful day
and it even started a little sunny....miraculously...
but now of course the cloudiness has brought a touch of grey
and the temperatures are so cold for what's supposed to be a Spring day....
nevertheless, wishing all of us a beautiful day filled with kindness and bunny 'hoppiness'! :)

The dance

Swift arrows
and near misses
targets sway
to and fro
Odds are odd
with each heart
dodging darts
fearing the ill
of poison tips
Even still, hope
strangely lingers
searching vainly
for the one
who surely fits
in like of life
and snuggle hugs
and tasty lips
like the bee that
gathers pollen
dips to test and test
until finally to a hive
where it comes to rest
and gives of it
it's very best
of work and
exhaustive search
It is the dance
of chance...
till the laying of
our bodies down
there is a chance
so we dance






(...some of us may be ready to just sit this one out!)

we dance...i dance
for the love of the dance
though a poison tipped arrow
will end all dancing of tomorrow
and is not worth a partner's chance
so perhaps we could put those away
and just dance openly and gratefully
for our incredible bodies that move
without needing booze or to use
or even a partner to confuse :)
so if dancing with one of those
who might step on your toes
or on our own if you chose
let your self surrender
release your energy
so you can be free
to lose yourself
completely in
the dance

With quiet trepidation you offered your hand.
I accepted.
Through my strained eyes
I gave you children, you gave me a backbone..
I gave you a bedrock you never refused.
Dancing on my own was a moment
in a time that I dreamed but rejected.
If I danced alone, I celebrated the joining...
Never, ever, the separation. If I danced joined...
I still danced alone. And...you..too.

when I dance 'alone'
something in me touches eternity
for my spirit dances with me
as it has always been
and I can only imagine always will be....

have no idea why
I feel this with such certainty
it's just always been a part of me
this feeling of freedom and unity
and never one of seperation
but of wholeness and elation
dancing with me....

ironically
when I dance with a partner
if ill matched
that is when the feeling
of division is hatched....

but with one in harmony
then I can feel my energy
rise in waves like the sea
as we flow in a timeless bubble
that seems to touch eternity....

as long as I let the dance take me
into that space when I'm truly free
where mind and body are in unity
for that is when my heart and soul
help me see I'm one with you...and me....

My Dearest Little Girl ………

I see you standing there
Arms wide open, for you are not scared
So innocent, so carefree, and full of belief
For you are unscathed by life’s tragedies and pain

I watch you at times
Knowing…that someday,
You will dance through my soul again
Not a care in the world
Like a beautiful butterfly in spring

For your wings …. They are not broken
By shattered dreams and a jagged heart
You see only with wide eyed wonder
The endless possibilities
You bring a smile to my face, and warmth to my heart

I look at you standing there
Full of hope, curiosity and happiness
Loving eyes that reach out to watch , to protect
To hold me tight as I sift through the fears
Unknowingly …. You keep me safe

You hide yourself, yet scream without sound
I’m still here …
Waiting patiently for your wounds to heal
So that I too may once again …
Play innocently, magically, openly

You know my terrors, you know my fears
For you have always been there
Tucked deep inside for all these years
Watching and waiting ~
For me to fly with you …. To take that chance
And you so patiently wait …
For US to dance

The Day

On the day it arrives
Behind are the listless nights
Of imagining...
Pronounced are the butterflies
Too late to notice imperfections now...

Just deeply breathe
And let go the giddy tension

At the time it is time
All that was slips away
All that was important
Doesn't matter anymore
On your start, get ready...
Begin to change your days

Just deeply breathe
And start your walk

The music outside your head
Accompanies the dance
Your eyes will make
It goes all too swiftly now...
You mind taking in , feeling the pictures
That years from now you'll fondly recall

Just deeply breathe
There he is...

Of all the emotion
Brought at this moment...
Noting the fabric on your fathers arm,
The smiling faces greeting yours
Natures many presents of the day
The one who's eyes are your compass
Stands in wait to light your way

Just deeply breathe
Your there...

Now in the moment ~
Take his hands
You can't believe
There you stand
And trying to remember
Means nothing now...
You only hear the preachers vows
That he ask you to repeat now...
The loving gaze and steady hand
Slips on yours, a Wedding Band...

Just deeply breathe
You are his wife

Beached

I'm walking with sunlight
in my sandals;
my eyes on the sea
Golden kisses on my skin
and hair brushed by
the Ocean breeze
I'm walking with
a peaceful smile
taking in a moments bliss
a magically wonderful wonder
as the sand imprints my steps
