Become Whole Again

Peaceful meadow filled with buds of beauty
dance in the wind that spreads colorful waves
to all who fill their hearts with gentle love
smiles wipe the frowns as serenity comes

Twisted minds are calmed just for a moment
allows destined light to a despoil path
peacefully listened to one's lonely heart
light upon one's eyes show pathway ahead

Footsteps in one's stride directly broadened
as ones path become visual and ready
new direction, new thoughts, new horizon
rejects fear continues directed walk

Minds confusion calmed as the light prevailed
faith overtakes the weakened structures state
trust as stable foot carries the body
confidence takes shaken will of despair -

as one becomes whole again in their heart

Take a Breath - Breathe

Can one be too inquisitive
asking too many questions?
Be too impulsive wanting
answers and reassurance?

Right now - Yes!

New Beginnings Will Rise

Many a word has come to rest
from a place of sleep upon the breast
lying dormant words longed to rise
wipe away the doubt from aging eyes

A gentle spirit touched ones lips
as if to say, the heart will now slip
onto a woven path, that guides one true
time has come life changes are now due

One step at a time to learn a new role
gain a new friend is a reaching goal
for life has come around once again
take it slow stop wondering about when -

for a new beginning will rise

Nowhere to Love

Love is hostile as you depart
from my heart of default -
as I fall from the chase
I remove me!

The Waiting Heart

Sometimes ~ the head will go into
whirlwinds with unexpected
gentle pleasures, a meeting that
suddenly came from out of the blue

Sometimes ~ the mind will say
how did feelings come so quickly
when it was only a moment’s view
that we shared something in common

Sometimes ~ the lonely body comes
alive again with unexpected emotions
starting one’s internal blood to rise with
sweet rushing that swirls in its flow

Sometimes ~ the waiting heart will say
this is it for dreams can come true
love will seek us again as he and I
discover our long awaited fate

I still wait…

Peaceful Sleep Comes

Tree branches are bare as if not to care
Golden leaves lay by the shivering trunk
Nourishes the earth they become a pair
Season passes dead leaves on earth have sunk
Chilly the winds blow on the country road
Wet leaves are heavy lie still in their beds
Nature will take them she’ll carry her load
Grind the fallen till they are golden threads
Snow comes soon a white blanket covers graves
Shelters nature’s gift sleep comes to their site
Season completes her cycle comes and saves
A peaceful sleep comes without any fright
As day ends, the moon will shine in the night
In the morning, there will be a bright light

The Couple

The day is in a misty cloud
dampness like a blanket covers
almost like a day in Autumn
shields you and me and all lovers

They hold hands the couple share love
bonded their venture is complete
young love is so very precious
we remember moments so sweet

Love only comes to one it seems
when young they learn about the world
they discover what living is
rushed daily living is so whirled

New love is a beautiful thing
all’s right it seems for you and he
commitment combined the couple
shall live happily he and she

Dedicated to John Thomas Orokos
January 5, 1962 ~ August 12, 1996


Departed Son is sadly thought of
as his calendar date comes again
a date I shall always treasure
as I heard a gentle cry from him
cakes with candles shall come here no more
presents unshared with paper that curled
Mother’s tears come as her heart is tore
as she remembers her loving son -

4 Weeks Old
Gracie 2 years old ~ Now 6!

Gracie is Home

My friend is******named Gracie
Coming to my house**she was saved by God
Alone scared I ran quickly and picked her up
Searching for Mom Kitty, she fled in woods
Kitten was starving gave her warm milk
Took an adjustment but then she drank
Not good as her Mom’s but it works
Fed safely in her new home
Gracie now takes a nap
Directed home
Rhoda now
Is her
