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.

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

I ran this morning

On ice and snow

The trees glisten

The ice fairies glow

I hear the geese

Sound celebration

The storm is gone

Now jubilation

As I crunched

My shoes as I run

I looked up to see

A heart shaped sun

Barrenness season

Frigid reminder of loss

Temporarily …

Mia


She came to be

She sits to know

Her purpose true

As she shall grow

Into a mistress

Of many hearts

She is her own…

New Years Day


Breaking trail

the first day.

The year is now

a different number.

A cold night

a restless slumber.

2021 even sounds

better than before .

So slowly we open,

now close the door.

Hand Me Downs


I was the one who they called the knee baby.

Not sure why , I am the one in the cap,

I stood as tall as the rest of my siblings.

I always had an impish smile; they said.

Worn out pants handed down by someone.

I never knew we were not rich.

My Grandparents never ‘let on.’

Looking in the Pages


Looking through pages

the freedom of the past.

Before the virus

came so fast.

It will be gone;

just hope and pray.

It won’t be long

we will see a new day.

Time


A quick jaunt in early morning

Time was on my side

A holiday wish with all our warnings

Good wishes do abide 🙏

Stars


Among the stars

And ending night

My heart sores

My feet take flight

Alas another day is here

still left with our covid fear

But sustain us all we pray

So we will see another day.
