The soul is calm
guiding the body
through the curvatures
of the world highways

Moments now and again
bring it to bend, to sway
as bouts of displeasures
battle the weary frame

Storms arouse the soul
testing limits
grabbing its being to
reveal the stability

Strength within
captures the essence
surrounding a beating heart
giving protection from the -

soul storm that invaded thee

Happy Easter 2011

Easter Blessings to Your and Yours

You meet people
everywhere you go,
some move fast -
some move slow

Some take a moment
with a friendly hello,
others move along -
you they don't know

Take some time
to flash your smile,
as people pass you by -
maybe even chat for a while

One gloomy day
you might be sad,
as you remember -
a moment you had

to share a cheery hello

My Gracie ~

Her heart is warm
she's full of love
coming to me, we bond
as she was sent from above

Her purr is gold
eyes always glow
she has feline spirit
this she does show

Mommy love you
I tell her each day
a hug she gives me
a day doesn't stray

I shan't ask
for anything more
she fills my heart
she's something to adore -

my Gracie

Watch Your Doggie Door ~

Could you imagine coming home from work to find this tiny creature napping on your couch with your dog? Guess who came home for dinner? The Fawn followed this Beagle home, right through the doggy door. The owner came home to find the visitor had made himself right at home...

An April Fool's Day

A dreary day
the sun went away
to sleep for just a bit longer

the winter wants to last
but, we long to go out and play

Misty rain
comes gently down again
as I rise to a chilly day

Mr. Sun
please try to come
warming us so we can say

We have missed your smile
come back for awhile –

take away an April Fool's Day
