Break or Bend

Darkest night, the tempest rages

Violent winds upon the shore

Mighty Oak and Willow bracing

Morning light reveals the score

 

Staunchly stood the Oak resisting

Any change from status quo

Willow swayed and rode the current

Bowing to the greater force

 

Steadfast Oak sustained much damage

Branches snapped that would not bend

Willow’s tired leaves discarded

Healthy limbs, a place for growth

 

Change occurs, how will you answer?

Fight to keep your comfort zone?

Ride the thermals to new heights?

Break or bend, your life, your choice.

 

Infinite Wisdom

Infinite wisdom, time and space

Concepts man cannot embrace

Spirits and guides, to you implore

Follow, trust with them explore

 

Faith in the vastness sight unseen

Purpose, path, what does it mean?

Miracles happen every day

Inward turn, you’ll find your way.

Lost Valentine

P1020454

 

I walk the beach, our favored spot

Searching for my love.

Pink puffs on blue, sun bursting through

Hopes are riding high

 

Be this the day I see his face

Finding his way back

To hearth and home, his family

Awaiting safe return?

 

I see a man.  He’s coming near

Bursting is my heart

The gait is wrong, the build not his

Smashed to smithereens

 

The gulls are screaming, “Silly girl.

Spirits walk with God.

You look for him, but cannot see.

Open up your mind.”

 

“A special date, a butterfly,

Feathers, pennies find

A rainbow stretched across the sky

Messages of love.”

Put yourself in the other guy’s shoes

Love Thyself

love-thyself

Be Still

be-still

Get, Rejoice, Contribute!

Holidays, depressed once more

Wallow in self-pity

Humankind is happier

Life for me a struggle

 

Ego taunts.  “Poor me,” it cries.

Stifling heart and logic

Spirit softly whispers love

“Precious being, holy.”

 

Spirits linking infinite

Time and space forgotten

Ancestors, angelic aides

Blessings freely given

 

Look around for gifts abound

Sunlight, trees and flowers

Creatures made by God’s own hand

Each unique and custom

 

Lift your heart by giving thanks

Ego kicked to gutter

Share what’s yours with fellowman

Get, rejoice, contribute!    

Do You Know a Soul?

Do you know a soul

Who sucks the life from you,

Whose selfish temperament

Drains all the strength you have?

 

Do you know a soul

Compassionate and strong

And generous with all

An Angel sent from God?

 

Do you know a soul

Whose angry eyes are dark

Who only wants to harm

All creatures in his way?

 

Do you know a soul

Whose heart is good but lost

Can’t find his way from dark

To see the lighted path?

 

Do you know a soul

Who needs your precious words?

The truth is plain to see

Each spirit needs your prayer.

 

Do you know a soul

Who needs your helping hand?

Give freely if you can

We all come from the One!

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
