HOLD TO PROMISE

Promise is a wonderful treasure, Precious and delicately formed. She’s to be valued beyond measure; Protected from theft and harm.   Plenty would seek to steal your blessing, As innocent as they might seem. So brazenly without redressing; Unashamed of killing a dream.   Don’t let them come near your heart and soul With theirContinue reading “HOLD TO PROMISE”

WHEN RAIN COMES

Sometimes rain comes softly, With a subtle touch and light step, She arrives in the dark of night. The signs of her visit Are fragrant, crystalline jewels That sparkle in the morning light. Then there are sudden times, When Thunder and Lightning join her Accompanied by mighty wind. Great chaos and drama Send creatures runningContinue reading “WHEN RAIN COMES”

RENAISSANCE

Darkness yields to dawning light; Ones asleep for a long, cold season Begin to awaken and stir.     Thoughts and dreams once lost in time Slowly rise up from deepest places, Where they wait and hope for rebirth.     Feelings bring fresh sensation, Sweet misery made from pain and joy Sing new songsContinue reading “RENAISSANCE”

INTANGIBLE FRIEND

Sometimes soft and gentle, Speaking in lowest whispers; Sometimes more flamboyant With songs too loud for ears.   Often filled with gusto, Enthusiasm bursting; Then quiet and moody, Not doing a single thing.   Innocently dancing Twirling and spinning around Until you fall with laughter In a heap on the ground.   So unpredictable; YetContinue reading “INTANGIBLE FRIEND”

A LITTLE MEWSING

At the risk of seeming catty, I thought I’d mews a while. It seems purrfectly acceptable And might even make someone smile. You might say you don’t know what fur, Purrhaps you prefur a tail, If you don’t laugh at all this punning, You might discover that you whale (oops, wrong animal.) If you paidContinue reading “A LITTLE MEWSING”

STRETCH THE LIMITS

Stretch the limits Of your expectations; Of what you already know. Stretch the limits Until you have found Inspiration for your soul.   Stretch the limits Of what you thought possible; Of all your wishes and dreams; Stretch the limits Until you have learned Life is bigger than it seems.   Stretch the limits; ThenContinue reading “STRETCH THE LIMITS”

RAINBOWS

Rainbows are signs of hope, Reminders of promise That help us to press on And watch for better times ahead. They can’t come without rain,, Sent to wash and nourish, Often so dark and cold, Settling like a wet blanket. All creation huddles, Tucked in against the rain That falls like endless tears As MotherContinue reading “RAINBOWS”

I DECIDE

I was thinking about all of the struggle and turmoil that gets reported to us each day.  I was reminded that each person gets to choose his or her identity and quality of life, even when others vie so hard to take control   This poem is dedicated to each of you, dear readers.  MayContinue reading “I DECIDE”

SPRING CLEANING

Cobwebs in corners; Stalks from last year’s plants; Boxes and Christmas wrap; Ski gear, parkas and snow pants; Where did all this come from? How could this mess be! It wasn’t here yesterday, Was it? Things pile up So insidiously.   Somewhere in corners, Out of conscious sight; Hazy memories linger; Collected through years ofContinue reading “SPRING CLEANING”
