The Dance


Edited in Prisma app with Leya

We see what we want to see,

we hear the sounds we want to hear,

Listen closely to the way the earth

dances with the flowers…

The symphony of the atmosphere

Bring me a bouquet of spring .


Bring me a bouquet of spring. 

Colored with all the cotton Candy pastels 

With smells of sweetness one day to wear 

With promise and tints of beginnings 

Christ-mans of Triduum with passion 

Of past and present and future 

Together inseparable as the clock silenced

Bring me a bouquet of spring, silence , passion 

Promise and hopes wrapped in pastels 

From innocence renewed and sustained . 

What Happen


What happen to the laughter,

The joy that once was there

A dark deep cloud began to rise

A sickness undeclared 

It swept across in human life

Unseen but still so real

A enemy without face 

Claimed all it set out to kill.

The cries within the elderly 

The beds of sick and dying 

The young, the youth,  left 

Behind found alone and crying.

What happen to the laughter

The joy that once was there

Now we gather in brokenness

Now we gather in despair….

Nights at Grandaddies


Nights at Grandaddies house 

The windows were always open 

My siblings and I slept in a large bedroom

My brother was in a single bed 

My sister in a double rod iron bed

The nights were of sleepy shadows 

Sounds were of owls in the dark

Cool breeze found its way in as

We drew the patch work quilt over 

Nights at Grandaddies were cocooned 

In the knowing of love and safety 

And it was ‘ going to be alright.”

Birthday


A candle on her favorite food

Lit on this her 10th year passing

I sit and wonder in the quiet moment

No birthday song to wish a lasting

Wishes for the future gone

As the days have passed quickly

And you are not here to belong

At this table of celebration

Yet it is for you and only you

Leaving loved ones with their own

deliberation.

Spring Again


The sky begins

To rumble

The earth breaks

And begins to crumble

Bulbs push up

To soak in rain

And signs now show

Spring returned again

Birthday Stack


Birthday Stack

The stack went high
So high in the sky
The candles glowed
And went on and on
The special way
I started my day
With Mom and Dad
And siblings too
The glitter and gleam
Reflected in me
As the dreams for the day
Go as far as I can see.

Music for all


The Cup


A moment alone

I start to think

How hectic the world

Life in a blink.

I breath in deeply

And say a prayer

Grateful for the sunshine

The kindness the care
