Upon Our Brows

Grace comes to those with a loving heart
as one waits for a moment to comprehend
the vision before them - the light of truth
shines in our eyes to complete their view

Our dreams a reality for those who believe
joy fills ones soul as it should for those
who carry His faith shall endure deeply
as written, as promised for it is our truth

Deliverance from Him the heart is lost
grace is gone for the promise now shallow
regain faith from the loving devine as the
light from above shines in all its glory -

upon our brows

Surround the Lonely Heart

Diamonds created from an uncut stone
buried within the earth’s surface, 
once found they are cut and shaped
with facets of purity

Rare is the diamond that sparkles
with a magnitude of brilliance, 
catches a sad eye for clarity
with hues that glow - blinding

Diamonds fill the heart - the purest
of love is given as the soul surrounds
its glow with depth, to bring a moment
of silence to the heart that feels

Rare is the substance that one takes
for granted, purity and love may be
shared as the diamond opens the heart
to the facets of life as gifts of love -

surround the lonely heart

Gently felt His touch this day
as I busily go on my way
grocery errands quickly to run
outside I feel His warm strong sun

Brightness filling a noonday rhyme
taking one along quickly in time
shopping needs to be swiftly done
caring for oneself - being one

Happiness fills this single heart
He guides my life from the start
need not to worry, fret or frown
never going to let life get down -
on me!

suddenly, a touch brought
the frown to a smile
without warning the
stranger turned it around
epidemic now shall spread

Let Us Remember

Remembering My Children
 with Picture I Found Online

Remember family and its past
brings joy that fills the heart
Memories appear within the trees
stories that created colorful art

Feisty children and their pranks
they grew up so fast it seems
They played and ran everywhere
such joy they bring in dreams

One longs return to peaceful times
family laughed and enjoyed the fun
But, time moves on in different ways
remember ~ when we were joined as one

One Who Seeks...

Movement all around consumes
realizing a moment is not still
bring thoughts of structure
to the area at hand

Building a safe haven
a magnificent glory to all
for the shelter to ones soul
protects til heaven is reached

Sounds of nature consoles
confusion of a rushed world
to bring peace and comfort
to bring an ideal moment

A mind that wanders adds joy
gentle thoughts carry the body
through torn structures at hand
one who seeks peace is awakened

Solitary Life Complete

A kiss makes the heart young
again and wipe out the years
Moments of passion and love
will dry away the tears

Without love within the heart
one struggles with loneliness
Longing for one to come to thee
willing to hold and caress

Dreams forever remain in ones heart
for as long as the mind shall roam
Strength becomes lonely solitude
brings peace to ones single home

Without strength to withstand it all
one would fly in circles of defeat
They try to understand their world
to make their solitary life complete

Upon a journey my feet do troll
through mysterious paths of dreams
longing to regain a long lost soul
happiness found quickly it seems

Visual memories past through the mind
from many years lost long ago
emotions search the strength to be kind
peace returns although seems very slow

Flutters become a waiting heart
as thoughts consume days past
reality brightens the mind to start
one hears words of joy at last

Without past memories that do delight
they bring hope when days are grey
happiness stirs the heart just right
gives rejuvenation to all so they say

A Plan and Goal

Bright and sunny the day begins
young leaves twinkle in the light
Perfect day all will enjoy and win
comfort becomes the mood just right

Tomorrow predicts overcast with gloom
weather just can’t give us a break
Day will reminds us of a darkened doom
almost like going to the weathers wake

Let’s smile and feel happiness today
for it is what it is that touches our soul
He shares his rainbow for that’s His way
for He’s the one with a plan and a goal

T ainted evil thoughts on a beach just for me
A lways ready to swim and not tell

A Morning Ritual

Happy Birthday Gracie ~ Now 9 Years Old

You wake my senses with love and charm
as you caress my sleeping form
that brings me from a deep slumber 
you wake me to light of an early morn

Sleepy eyed I look at you
excitement stirs in your heart
knowing I am now awake
brightens your  kitty play to start

Each morning you come to me
paw touches my closed eye or cheek
some days you lean against my side
you find your own safe place to sleep

And, some morns I wake up on my own
I wonder if you forgot me that day
how silly am I for there you come
you hear me stir as I get up on my way -

my Gracie

Hoping for a Win-Win

Thoughts come in sort of a weary way
day gloomy but, summer will come someday
Tree limbs gliding with a windy breeze
refresh so sweetly all the young trees

Quite thought as mind moves along
emotional memories come in a song
Alone is thy self as life made her plan
pretend to draw dreams in long lost sand

Watch the movement of the daily grind
emotions come and go within the mind
Another day of peace and quiet again
this is life hoping for a blessed win-win

Awsome ~ Amazon Store Card Customer Rep

Speaking to a young lady today
as I tried to get an account number
straightened out - the moment
was inspiring just to listen to her

Completely knowledgeable
about the conversation that was
at hand she completed the
task with up most speed

Her manners were impeccable
her voice calm and comforting
as you can guess I didn’t have a
clue as to how to correct my issue

The young lady is Alexis from
FL state far from where I roam
I would love to meet her in person to
give her an old white lady 'fist hug’

Just to show you -
manners and common courtesy
 I am happy to say is not totally lost
to the general public after all...

Here Comes Summer...

I’s Ready...

Today the sun was bright
all well for the mind and body
it has been a long time coming as
one waited for the warmth to arrive

One can function in the cold with
bundles of garments that surrounded them
but, as the months pass one is ready to shed
ready to expose their outer shell to the sky

Today it came big, bright and fuller than the moon
whew we said, driving in our car to nowhere
as we remembered not of the months past but,
longing for the warmth to overtake our souls

Being human is hard for we jump here
and there as we search for our comfort
at first glance - the snowy cold is glorious
at first touch - the sun is what we longed for

that is until the temp goes to 95 degrees...
Ready? Here Comes Summer!

His Mysterious Ways...

One waits to be
included as they silently
move along -

Not a moment too soon
another calls to include
the one left behind -

God works in mysterious 
ways to take care of His own
doesn't He -

Confusion Rushes

Dark fear of an unknown place
crowds the shadows of her mind
deep confusion rushes through
mind channels going nowhere

Through a dreary damp night
her soul was called away
to a new place to complete
visions of her lost nightmares

Longing for the tide to turn
brings a calm to her mind of
insanity as thoughts drive her
to deep depths of darkness...

she weeps

Sound penetrate ones ears
as the mind quivers with
vibrations of echos that weave
 in and out from lost voices that
revive young child thoughts

Sound from long ago buried in
shallow graves that yearn to rise
to be heard again, to bring joy
and a sense of security to ones
misunderstood puzzled dots

Sound in the deep soul remain but,
reach to be retrieved and heard for
all that was hidden is not there to
bring harm or discouragement only to
bring comfort to childhood plots...

while one plays in wonderland

Forever Home of Glory

Thoughts come about with passion
that consumes the gentle being of me
Visions of yesteryear darting, dancing
within the mind that brings me glee

Maybe it is the season of rebirth
that touches me with grace and love
Or, maybe it is the realization of oneself
that now comes forever more from above

Grateful am I for this turn in my life
a turn of rebirth, a turn that makes me whole
my path with guidance, a journey of faith
that prepares me with joy and peace in my soul

Age come to me but, with a new understanding
thoughts bring me wisdom to complete my task
I am to join Him when He says it is my time in His
forever home of glory that does not wear a mask

Continually Searching For!

Thoughts throughout time
overwhelm the mind
but, as time evolves
the inner being succumbs

One finds the pleasure are
so sublime that if one takes
a moment to indulge pleasant
thoughts of the past peace comes

If one has a vision of uncertainty
a moment of focus clears the clutter
the mind calms and comes to rest
with pleasures of forgotten memories

Thus, a calm mind is enduring
a calm mind brings one to focus
a calm mind brings peace within
a calm mind is what one is...

continually searching for!

Our Moments in Time...

Long ago, there stood a moment in time
that we shall all remember knowing
moments shall come around again

Moments of laughter, of joyous times
with one another as the children played
we all came together - as one

Younger days, we grew and longed
for a fulfilled life that was laid out
before us - our destiny - our fate

Memories of friends who shared thoughts
of new homes around us, planting of seeds
that grew and nurtured our growing families

Many know deep in our hearts, we
shall come around again as we passed
through our own moments of time -

we remember those along the way

Happy Memorial Day

Without a Second Thought

Time is an ever-flowing adventure
for it moves forward
without a second thought

As the earth revolves
the sun rises and sets according
to the time clock of the universe

When we awake in the morning
we know the sun will rise
for we have always known

Just as we know the rain
wind and clouds will be there
on a timely basis

Time may move slowly
or swish swiftly by depending
on who we are or where we may be

Sometimes it creeps ever so slowly
we wish it would speed up
to get us through our hour of woe

Suddenly it speeds by and we wish
it would slow down to give us more
time to savior moments of serenity

Learning long ago time stands
not a moment still I will use time
wisely for time shan’t wait for me
