SUPERMAN

If I were Superman, I’d fly around the world backwards

To turn the time upside down

I’d go back to when my boys were small enough

To hold upon my lap

When we were all a family, my husband, boys and grands.

Go back, I say, to simpler times.

I’d lay beside the man I chose for better or for worse

To feel his heat and love forever.

 

Accept, Forget and Live for now.  This moment’s all I’ve got.

No argument from me.

But I cannot forget what was, my life, my love, my boys.

It’s burned forever in my heart.

The boys are men that need me not. My husband’s gone back home.

Life is good, but much is lost, never to retrieve

If I were Superman, I’d fly around the world backwards

To turn the time upside down.

The Rose

Fragrant rose stands alone

Protected by her thorns

Facing winds, pests, disease

Surrounded by her peers

 

By herself in a group

She meets her fate head on

Knowing that all blooms fade

Her time is limited

 

Bud to bloom, path is set

Each petal will unfold

Sharing joy, beauty’s gift

Revealing what’s inside

 

We’re unique, talented

Our mission is to use

What we have, who we are

To help our fellow man

More Than Not

Gratitude that opens doors

To greater gifts abound

Open heart appreciates

With humble hands gives praise

 

What you have is more than not

Enough for you to share

Break the bread to pass around

For more will come your way

 

Care for others, rich and poor

Their crosses they must bear

Kindness, love and gratitude

Are gifts we all can give

 

Happiness is from within

The joy of feeling blessed

Thankful for the birds that sing

When challenged by life’s test

 

What you have is more than not

With humble hands give praise

Happiness is from within

The joy of feeling blessed

Human Condition

Struggle through the birth canal

The baby fights for life

Tiny lungs that gasp for air

A slap across the butt

 

Pattern set for human life

It’s cruel and cold sometimes

Fraught with tests and challenges

To teach life’s lessons best

 

Question not when things are good

Enjoy the respite time

Love will keep your spirit whole

Resilient, strong, inspired

 

Time to leave will come with death

For most another fight

Struggle through the veil to light

Cross over, job well done!

Inner Voice

Twisted moments, fleeting dreams

Confusion, fractured thinking

Make a change or stay the course

Decisions weighing heavy

 

Seeking wisdom I must have

To excavate God’s message

Light one step before I fall

Or give me wings for flying

 

Life’s a crap shoot, nothing’s sure

Endure on Faith all blindly

Listen to the inner voice

Within the answer’s hiding

Another Chance

New Year,will it bring
Another chance to dance and sing?
Chapter ended, next one starting
Baby steps give hope eternal

Like a flower petals open
Showing more of God’s intention
Roses’ beauty pricked with thorns
Yin and yang, self sometimes torn

Fear not to reach beyond
Take risks and stretch, to grow
Sad truth is if stuck in muck
Your heart will never know.

Happy Heart

 

Padlocked heart

Selfish heart

Angry heart

Troubled heart

 

Trust someone

Help someone

Thank someone

Free someone

 

Open heart

Giving heart

Grateful heart

Happy heart

 

Another Soul

Another one has left this place

Never to return

As parent, friend and confidant

Strong until the end

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

It takes belief and open heart

Know that she lives on

Her home is peace, love, harmony

Painful body shed

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Five senses do not see her soul

There behind the veil

Be still to view her messages

Love sent from afar

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Rejoice she’s found her way back home

Angels there to guide

Another soul has left this place

Resting in the Lord.

Unexplained

Unexplained symbols

From places unknown

Numbers repeating

Feathers and dreaming

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Signs from the loved ones

Sent from the heavens?

Only your heart can

Translate the meaning

Hill of Beans

My mother lived ’til three months shy of ninety-five

She level set my crazy ways by stating fact

“It doesn’t ‘mount to hill of beans,” she’d say to me.

I’d have to reassess my faulty point of view

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

I share the simple wisdom to evaluate

Your circumstances, problems and those challenges

That lock you in a jail created by your mind

Enumerate the beans and free yourself to fly
