Each day when we awaken,
We have been given a gift.
A gift of talent, time, life, and breath
It can give your soul a lift.
Use your gifts wisely
For good and not for bad.
Spread your gifts to […]
Imagine, if you will, a tiny little sparkly fairy
If you do, then think of her as I call her, Mary.
Mary likes to flit around and settle on my shoulder
Lacking that, she’ll often sit on an old, lumpy b […]
Love this ditty!
When I was young, my older cousin gave my sister and me a fairy named Pinkie. She and her sister had one named Lucy. They never caused us any trouble and I don’t really remember them doing anything but zooming invisibly around. I haven’t thought of them in years, until reading your poem.
It would be awesome if everyone could see the fairies! I love this poem. And they do move things all the time. Mischievious little graces 🥂💫
The mist covers the mountain
In colors of pink, silver, and blue
The lazy ripples of the water
Reflecting the mountain too.
I look to the horizon
At the distant silhouettes
Of far off other mountains
I long for blessed slumber
The softness of my bed
I long to go to dreamland
And rest my weary head.
I long to snuggle under blankets
Give in to sleep with a sigh
I long to […]
Congrats on doing the full marathon!!! I did the half and admire your tenacity! Love this poem and especially the ‘gritty eyes’. Looks like we were writing from the same place, as I am staying with my sister in Calgary. Once things open, it would be great to go for coffee!
Thank you and I’d love that! Things are opening up a bit so maybe we can do so soon.
Yes!! We can also sit six feet apart. I have my car so can drive to any part of the city. Let me know when that might work for you?
The streetlamp it sheds its glow
Across the street from me.
It spreads its light in the darkness
Enables me to see.
The rain it trickles from its top
A misty pretty […]
We gather our wits and utensils
We gather our thoughts gone astray.
We gather together to get through the night
A group of like-minded people
We laugh, we don’t fight.
Instead….we all wri […]
The Christmas Angel
Quite a few years ago, on a bittersweet Christmas day
My family got together, all of us I must say.
Family came from far and near with one thing on our mind
It was most likely going […]
The 80’s Tech
I remember as a teenager having my finger at the ready
To push the button on my boombox, I’d have to hold it steady.
I’d wait and wait some more, just waiting for a song
To record at the […]
Heated passion, joy to share
Devout respect, mutual care
Sweet affection, happy times
Get together, hear the chimes
Of a yearning bell, full of desire
Fondness, yearning, warmth of […]

To take you many places unknown
Other countries to explore and learn
Many sights to see Many things to experience
When I was a child […]
Finding yourself can be difficult
In this crazy, hectic world.
Take your troubles into nature
Let all your worries unfurl.
Spend some time nurturing flowers
Smell the soil, water it well
If you […]
Dirty clothes in the hamper
Wet towels on the bathroom door
Mismatched socks hiding here and there
I search for them all over the floor.
I gather all the pieces up
And into the basket I […]
When Calls the Heart by Janette Oke
“It came as a great surprise to me.” “I had no objections.”
“It came as a great surprise to me.”
It came as a great surprise to me
When I […]
A Red Fantasy
I have been up in the mountains
I have traveled on the sea.
I have been to far off countries
But there’s one place I’d love to be.
I want to visit Mars one day
The red planet, so […]
In the Shadow of the Moon
A darkness surrounds me
Lack of sun
End of day.
I look up
All around me
There is little I can say.
I lift my eyes to the sky
See the moon
I am grateful
