Happy Easter from 'Expressions' ~




Easter Rainbow


I talked to the Easter Bunny
just the other day, told him
about this lady
who is special in every way.

I said, “Mr. Easter
Bunny, Sir -

please, make me a special surprise.
Something with brilliant colors
to light up her pretty eyes”.

As he looked at me
his nose twitched.
I could see in his eyes,
a beautiful surprise.
Colors of the rainbow that
travels from me to you,
colors of the rainbow
for you to see, too.

No matter where I am,
no matter where I shall be;
remember, our special rainbow
created for you and for me.

Just a Little Pat...


An animal’s heart has no bound
Accepts all who pat their waiting crown

Walk away, they hang their saddened heads
Hearts heavy as they lay on their beds

Moments go by; you bring them food to eat
They acknowledge your presence oh, so sweet

You leave again sadness begins to swell
For they want to be with you, can’t you tell?

Humans and animals a delightful pair
God, doing it right to that I will swear

An animal loves all no matter who they are
Protecting them from harm guarding from a far

So, pat their waiting heads to let loyal hearts know
You are their partner as love continues to grow

Animals & Seniors - Yup, Fits Here...


Two patients limp into two different medical clinics with
the same complaint. Both have trouble walking and
appear to require a hip replacement.

The FIRST patient is examined within the hour,
is x-rayed the same day and has a time
booked for surgery the following week.

The SECOND sees his family doctor after waiting 3 weeks
for an appointment, then waits 8 weeks to see a specialist,
then gets an x-ray, which isn't reviewed for another week and
finally has his surgery scheduled for 6 months from then.
Why the different treatment for the two patients?

The FIRST is a Golden Retriever,
The SECOND is a Senior Citizen.

Next time...take me to a Vet!

A Horoscope ~



Faith in the universe is a rare and lovely thing,
confidence within ones mind is shared with
those of immediate contact, sharing harmony

As the world is storming around mad at something or
someone I, being on an oasis of calm, spread inspiration
in this otherwise hectic day of confusion and mistrust

Gaining new appreciation of mankind and their wayward
wayward ways as the peoples of anger are drawn to a point
of peace surrounding them, joins the calm or take heed -

for an upheaval eruption, shall not wait


Author's Note:


*Forgoing poetry written based on my
version of my Horoscope for today.

*Your faith in the universe is a rare and lovely thing, and that confidence is certainly going to come in handy today. The rest of the world will likely be storming around, mad at something or someone. But you'll be an oasis of calm, an inspiration in this otherwise hectic day. Share your peacefulness with others if possible. The angst-ridden masses will be drawn to your placid charm.

White Swan, White Swan ~


White Swan, White Swan,
Where have you gone?
You use to be so plentiful,
On the shimmering water pond.

Beautiful feathers like
Cloud puffs at your side,
Long neck flowing that moves
To and fro as you glide.

White Swan, White Swan
Come back to us fast.
Your gracefulness, your beauty
We long for you too last.

Without you dear Swan
Our lives would be gray.
We long for your beauty
So stay, please stay,
And never go away.

Just for a Moment ~


Just for a moment you pause
escaping the hunt of the hunted,
seconds of solitary comfort
a moment to recover, to breathe
a normal breath of freedom

You wisp away the movements
of nature from your brow, taking
time to clean your paws that have
traveled miles, running from man,
running from what might catch you

Hearing the sounds around you
tempting you to move in their
direction, your mind wanders back
to the seconds you have as your body,
feels the coolness from the ground

A moment longer your heart cries,
just for a moments peace, not caring who
or what surrounds you, not concerned
as harm inches silently to your side,
not caring just for a moment as -

you continue to survive, them

March 19, 2010

The Eyes of Innocents ~


The look in your eyes is distant -
a look that tells mankind to stay away,
so you may live in your own chosen space

The loneliness you feel while
traveling your road in search of
what you are searching for, lingers

Hearts long to capture your innocents,
too tuck you safely away from human
devilish hands that bring you harm

Strong and beautiful you stand your
ground protecting your birth given
right to survive, as your howl cries...

let me run wild, let me run free

Lull of Calmness...



The moon and the stars gently
combine their energy to face
the morning sun that rises
creating dawn for a new day.

Nature spreads her arms to
embrace and catch new growth from
seedlings that burst to spread their hues
and scents from their glorious blooms.

A newborn fawn lays close
to its mother for protection
from the elements of nature that
can take defenses away, swiftly.

Rain showers the meadow to bring
cleanliness to the beds of comfort
as a shelter for those who inhabit the
silence and pleasure given to the wild.

The moon and the stars silently
come into being again as the night
swiftly arrives to let all sleep away
their memories of dreams creating -

lull of calmness in the meadow.

If I Can't...


If I can’t see, how can I witness the beauty that surrounds me?

If I can’t hear, how can I be entertained by the sounds of nature?

If I can’t speak, how can my voice of silence say thank you?

For the blessings I receive everyday, from Him ~

Because You Are Missed So Much ~


In Memory of Aimee Wolfram

"Beloved Aimee"

You came to me knowing how
dearly I needed you to comfort
my heavy heart, too ease my pain,
helping me to contain my sanity.

You gave to me your strength
desperately I needed, to make sense of it all.
You seem to know as you caught my tears
yesterday and again my tears of today.

Such a special friend you were to love me
unconditionally every day of your precious life.
Without question you were by my side,
always my loving steadfast companion.

Beloved Aimee forever in my heart
memories of you shall bring me joy,
along with tears of laughter as I see visions
of you in my dreams at my days end...

Sweetly I dream Aimee, until we meet again.

Got Cha...


When I received this email this evening, you can't
imagine how much I was laughing. Because...
Felines shred everything, if given the opportunity!

Thank you Carole Wolfram, UT

You Are My Sunshine ~



You are the sunshine
I am the rain,
Shine upon my soul
To ease my pain.

Lift me to your rainbow
So I may see,
The love that shines
For eternity.

Fill my heart
With rays of light,
Join me to you
On our destiny’s flight.

We are the sunshine
And there is no rain,
You have shown upon my soul
You have eased my pain.

Upon your rainbow
I now shall see,
Our love shall shine
For eternity.

Spring Love ~


Spring love is in the air
a word we sing a word we share

Bringing beauty to the eye
who is to question how and why

Colorful blossoms all around
plant life bursting through the ground

A season laced with special love
smell the fragrance from above -

created by God

Puns for Animal Lovers...



It was raining cats and dogs,
there were poodles all over the road.

When my cat lost her three male kittens,
I had to call missing purr sons.

Even the best bird dog is only good to a point.

A cat that swallowed a ball of wool had mittens.

To purchase a cat, find a pet store with a fee line.

Cats are often the victims of fur-ball abuse.



and so it goes...

Another Day has Begun ~



Cool breezes created from
swirling water in pools below
leaving misty cleanliness
upon ones dying spirit

Taking deep breaths savoring it all
the mind becomes gently consumed
with beauty and peace within
the confines of the body

Overwhelming joy brought by the
comforts of protective surroundings
fill the longing heart with love
streaming down from above

thus -

another day has begun

Nature's Loving Bond ~


Strong winds forcefully
sting faces of determination
entwined with fortitude
to withstand the devil of
it all, which is their destiny.

A loving bond so strong
the parallel between the two
picturesque statues destined to
fulfill the continuation of the gene
born between the two spirits joined.

Alas, birth peaks withstanding
the fury of nature’s hand.
A chick is born to complete the
cycle as life continues its pattern
of many mysteries born to the –

frozen land of the South Pole
