The morning sun is shining
twin jewels blazing in my eyes
as I bask in the light that reaches to me
I welcome the rays that pour from the skies.
The tree limbs sway in a gentle breeze
casting shadows that flitter across my face
I feel so alive, like I was meant to be
here and now in this shining place.
Bursts of exuberance emit showers from within
and a twinkling sound of joy proceeds from my heart
my body alive and warm with the power of love
I knew I was born for this from the start.
The smile that spreads across my glowing face
speaks the volumes I cannot conceive to say
I pray that heaven receives this blessing in return
this love that visits and energizes me today.
Let me not utter a discouraging word
or quench this radiant spirit that joins me
but like a river let the life flow out of my pores
I hear the spirit say ‘yes’ and I agree.
Soaking in the brilliance of the sun
I give thanks and welcome the god of life
happy are those who draw him inside
and for peace and happiness exchange their strife.

There is a song that is written just for me
I hear it playing, crooning so beautifully
it strums over my heart igniting my soul
restoring the passion my enemy stole.
Sizzling sound waves lap me in sensual lush
my blood pumping forth in a dizzying rush
purging my mind from worldly dissent
cleansing a heart that was utterly spent.
The melody ushers in delightful sensation
worships my body in it’s godly creation
with me sharing secrets that have never been told
my hips sway in rhythm to a ballad of old.
At one with the music that graces the night
I dance with my heart and all of my might
conjuring the elements in breathless desire
all the earth burns for a taste of my fire.
I dance here below but am joined with the spirits
their presence so close to mine I can feel it
I am ushered into their ravishing power
In return my euphoria on them I shower.

A true to life event, a sensory poem where I attempt to convey my deep joy and emotion in a memorable moment I had with nature.
The atmosphere was electrified
from the intensity of the passing storm.
A light rain falling, so softly
like the petals of a rose
and the air smelled pristine
of new earth
fresh and clean.
The clouds were dark
but lined in silver
as a white sun
broke through an opening
and shined it’s vivid light
upon the earth.
The raindrops reflected the light
and sparkled like white crystals
as it fell with such grace
from the heavens.
The shadows cast on the ground
were as of the night
of a full moon
accentuating and animating
every shrub and tree.
The contrast between
light and dark
but breathtaking in the
beauty of it’s harmony,
light and shadow creating together
a surreal and otherworldly scene.
And as I stood in the midst
of this natural wonder
I let my senses take over
letting them grow and reach out
as far out as they would go,..
and my soul was caught up
in admiration and surprise,
taken in absolute awe.
I was elated
wrapped up in a cocoon
of magic and reverie
as my mind, body and soul
answered mother nature
in her spectacular beauty.
I was helpless
to sound out a word
that would be sufficient enough
to convey the peace
and tranquility I was a part of,
so I gave myself over
to the sublime perfection
of the moment,
to the scene before my eyes.
And the instant I did this
I was lifted high in flight
on the wings of joy
soaring on a perpetual wave of bliss
that lasted until my head
rested upon my pillow
and sleep carried me away
with lovely dreams
in the night.

Sunny fun at the creek
bare feet splashing
in the clear cool water
and froggies too
my son and me.
Little toy soldiers
cowboys and Indians
robots and aliens…
Who will win the war?
No one knows (but probably him)
best buds forever
my son and me.
Day at the park
as high as we can
we swing to the clouds
and back down again
we slide down the slide
with arms thrown up high
we run round and round
till the sky spins
and we fall down.
enjoying the time…
Oh how I love this son of mine!…
two peas in a pod, him and I
my son and me.
Bath time bubbles piled up high
sporting bubble hair and beards
bedtime stories we love to read
night time kisses and hugs for me
Over this tiny sleeping angel
I pray blessings and give thanks
our lives a gift to share together
my son and me.
All alone, only angels see me
pouring out my heart through dance
as I twirl under the full moon.
Too many were the years that went by
too long since their last embrace
so many things had happened to them
now here they are face to face.
The heartbreak hurt inside his chest
the pain a wrench on her soul
so much time they could never get back
precious memories that circumstance stole.
For as long as he could remember
the smile on his face hadn’t shone
and she could not think of a time
when her heart hadn’t carried this stone.
They had went about their lives each day
and days turned into years
they both had carried much sorrow
they both had shed countless tears.
Now the hour at last had come
the time was finally here
she ran into his welcoming arms
he held her near and dear.
They looked over one another carefully
couldn’t believe how much they’d changed
they smiled and walked into his home
where stories and laughs were exchanged.
As I watch and listen in wonder
at the miracle happening before me
my heart so happy, my smile so wide
so thankful for the opportunity to see.
Two people finding each other after so long
the story a dream come true
and I think this is what heaven must be
a homecoming of family and life anew.
The gracious love of our creator
finally bringing us home
at last safe in the arms of his love
no more as orphans to roam.
This poem is based on a true story, one in which I was blessed to see and so proud to behold…..I have been so inspired and lifted up by this joyous occasion, that I had to write a tribute , and mark it in remembrance, sealing the time with words that will be read and felt, carrying on the memory into eternity and to the threshold of the city of our God and creator…….
Thank you for reading

The night was magical, the stars so bright
no moon to dim their twinkle tonight.
But even so, all on their own
the Earth was aglow with the light they shone.
Reflections on the water, of the stars in their abode
A liquid canvas of black glass bore the beauty they bestowed.
No thoughts of tomorrow, or the plaguing of woes
the silent arms of the night hold me in loving repose.
A solitary crimson star, stands out from among the host
a splendid jewel to adorn the sky, unique in it’s singular boast.
Lost in velvet bliss, in the stillness of the deep
my soul opened wide to receive it , as much as my heart could keep.
Floating on a sea of peace, I smile and close my eyes
giving thanks for the joy and wonder, underneath the starry sky.

Today, give thanks for the gift of your life and for all the good things in it.
CHRISTMAS……. Yes, it’s that time of year again. A time where we realize another twelve months of our life have come and gone with lightening speed right before our very eyes. A time of reviewing the events of the past year in our minds and what we wish to accomplish in the next. A time where we as adults are caught up in memories of our childhood, reliving the joy and magic of the season seen through the eyes of a child. The time where we open our treasure chest of precious memories of Christmases past. When we were children, it seemed as though time practically stood still, holding us against our will in a never ending prison of waiting and wanting; (child like drama emphasized. LOL!) Every second was filled with impatience and anticipation whenever we looked forward to some special event. Our excitement was barely contained, brimming over the edges with that child like wonder we were born with. Now that I have my own son, I enjoy seeing those same markers of childhood, and the fierce joy in his eyes as he tears into his Christmas gifts like a little beast. Today as you spend time with your families, remember to send a thank you for the things you hold dear; for the ones you love, for the magic of the moment, for all the beautiful memories that can never be replaced, past and present, and for the greatest gift of all, the gift of life, the breath of your spirit. MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL! : )
