Happy Birthday, Jesus~

In the silence of the night
He comes to us, bringing
us heavenly love and
warmth within His touch

As we accept His gift and
cherished love that surrounds us
we gives thanks to Him for He
brought His Son to us on this day

Our hearts receive the purity of His
light that shines upon a new born
in the hay, the light captures our
souls bringing us understanding

Remembering Baby Jesus on this
day we give thanks to you Father for
your blessings and our gift of life as
we bow our heads to Your Son Jesus –

Merry Christmas from

Freedom Flight ~

Her solo flight was swift as
she climbed to the heavens height
above the shadows of the clouds
in the sunlight of her dreams

Gliding with sharp precision she
carefully pauses her movement to grasp
what is surrounding her massive wing span
savoring for just a moment the universal pleasures

This journey she must endure the elements of
a long flight ignoring the sting of the wind the
pressure that touches the tips of her power
giving her the strength to carry on

She calls to a fading light knowing
her day is to end, it is time for her weakened
body to rest for endurance is needed to continue her
sought out journey, for her choice is to capture freedom -

from a lost world of confinements

My Heart Hears Her Song...

Something touched my heart,
a new pulse I do not know -
sensations from deep within,
visions circling my head,
new challenges I must win…

Something touched my heart,
a strange feeling inside -
warmth from a familiar soul,
suddenly filling my mind,
taking me to a new goal…

Something touched my heart,
a poem within a song -
sung with emotion and grace
words penetrating deep inside
spoken from a familiar face…

my heart hears her song

Dedicated to Melissa Etheridge
(I exercise to her music - my new goal)
