#20 Time Out

Time out

I need this


Put me in time out

I will sit quietly

enjoy the time

without noise

to disturb

peace in my world



Lanterns light the way

Dark nights

with lanterns glowing

showing the way

the light will lead us



chocolate chip cookies

great recipe

Makes about 8

decent size cookies

Great for late night

or early morning writing





who needs sleep

Creative juices are flowing

words are flying

from my brain to the page.

My brain won’t stop

for even a short nap

#16 midnight

Is it late

or is it early?

the clock shows 12

midnight or noon?

I call it late

cause it’s dark



Walls surround me

floors support me

and a roof over my head.

This is a house of love

love for you

love for me

and love for anyone in need.


Walking my path

is tricky

It’s not straight

nor is it smooth

Lots of bumps

and curves

Adventures and lessons

to be learned

and endured

#13 connections

a phone

a camera

a clock

a calendar

a notepad


text alert

news and weather

traffic report


one device

does it all

and more

I’m sure


a list poem


mom and dad

brothers and sisters

aunts and uncles

cousins, grandparents

and more

and those unrelated

special people

friends and others


This Moment Now

In this moment


What is happening?

I am writing

I hear fireworks in the distance

not sure why (8/5/17)

I am thinking

about this wonderful experience

Thanks to Caitlyn and Jacob Jans

A random invitation

somewhere in the past

has given me

a new family

full of writiers

like minded individuals
