Eternal Spring

I wonder if I will ever be too old to notice the first day of spring… The first glint of butterfly wing or the special song new birds sing. Carpets of purple verbena woven with soft grass for hungry deer, Wonder of long gently warm days; far removed from winter fear. This season that comes … More Eternal Spring

Spring Cleaning

Sometimes…life rushes by too fast to catch in a word. Feeling sands shift thoughts, concepts of mind blurred… So, I took my micro-view tight ideas outside for a walk! Far from the cacophony of voices and opinionated talk; Immersed myself, tried to wrap my mind around silence… I heard myself think… I ventured onward by … More Spring Cleaning

Turn Back

I am an old fashioned girl, I guess. Still a bit new to being an old lady; I’ve lived long enough to see a few things. I’ve learned a lot and I know what works, And what doesn’t.   I remember many things that are now, forgotten.   I’m still quite taken with chivalry. A … More Turn Back

The Choice

The Artist

The Door to Joy

Near the end of a harshly-cold, long, black night, when the explosion comes and personal worlds come crashing down. Everything known shattered and scattered lying on hard-packed ground. These moments are Death but the victims are left breathing to suffer the carnage. Wait for the morning light! Every ray that glints from each broken shard … More The Door to Joy

Season’s Romance

A rosy morning sunrise prances… (In a delicate sunbeam ballet) Upon snowy February branches… A frosty-day-sparkle-melt-away! Spring warmth on winter dances; Quick encounter a seasonal play! Yearly rendezvous brief romances… Warmth of life leads cold astray! Icy dissolve nurture life’s chances, Green rises to overthrow all gray! Glitter-to-glint magnifies enhances, Hope- for-spring-time-dream-day! Slow-waltz Winter’s Spring … More Season’s Romance

Tune of Heart

Oh! Listen to the new tune playing upon my heart! It’s light as feather stirred by emotional weather… Lifts by the sun; drifts with moon; love to impart! Sets dreams aquiver, light of inspiration to deliver… Dips down in a sad swoon, dream-despairing-heart… Melancholy blue savor, open Door for sad-believer… Breath of Life re-stirs my … More Tune of Heart
