Spring (is just around the corner)

Spring is just around the corner
came to visit me today
sunshine and gentle breezes
whisper throughout the meadow
as if, she wanted to say

Come see the birth of spring
hear nature’s gentle song
within the birds wings
it’s a clear blue sky
see them gliding along

Garden work to do
plant with loving care
water brings the growth
blooms with delicate hues
spring glows everywhere

Whispered in a Promise

The Sun will rise tomorrow ~
with a new promise of what will be
in store for the discontented heart,
floundering questions are expressed
openly after the setting of the Moon

The Sun will rise tomorrow ~
giving hope and renewal to one’s confusion
moving towards the steps that were laid out
dealt deliberately by a hand of cruel deeds,
a soul prays after the setting of the Moon

The Sun will rise tomorrow ~
with a bright vision of a beautiful world
yet to be seen as strength is endowed to the
body and mind preparing for the adventures
before and after the setting of the Moon

for it was whispered in a promise

Standing there, I feel
the focus of your eyes
calling to a broken heart
suddenly, bursting -
pieces start to mend

I Rescued a Human Today

Her eyes met mine as she walked down the corridor peering apprehensively into the kennels. I felt her need instantly and knew I had to help her. I wagged my tail, not too exuberantly, so she wouldn't be afraid. As she stopped at my kennel I blocked her view from a little accident I had in the back of my cage. I didn't want her to know that I hadn't been walked today. Some-
times the shelter keepers get too busy and I didn't want her to think poorly of them.

As she read my kennel card I hoped that she wouldn't feel sad about my past. I only have the future to look forward to and want to make a difference in someone's life. She got down on her knees and made little kissy sounds at me. I shoved my shoulder and side of my head up against the bars to comfort her. Gentle fingertips caressed my neck; she was desperate for companion-
ship. A tear fell down her cheek and I raised my paw to assure her that all would be well. 

Soon my kennel door opened and her smile was so bright that I instantly jumped into her arms. I would promise to keep her safe. I would promise to always be by her side. I would promise to do everything I could to see that radiant smile and sparkle in her eyes. I was so fortunate that she came down my corridor. So many more are out there who haven't walked the corridors. So many more to be saved.... At least I could save one.

Some People...

Some people are angels
who carry the cross for Jesus
Ordinary people who do
honest things without wings…
for others

Effort in Strength

Hear Me Roarrr!!!

Movement within the mind
rearranges thoughts from
here to there - delusions
remain as they fight to over
come past experiences as
the heart struggles to survive
thus, mind and heart combined
effort in strength, she wins...

Purity Inhaled

Purity of Heart, Body and Mind

Take a breath
breathe air into the
dry lung that is alive

Consume wholeness
purity inhaled feels the
wellness coming to thrive

Look, see the beauty as
shadows dissipate the ugly rule
light shows one ways to arrive

Again, time conquers one’s woes
His hand covers thee gently
teaching one how to survive

New Beginning 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 doubt from ones confused 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 when -
for new beginnings will rise

Private Thoughts

Boredom works
on the mind
creating a secret that
became personally private
thus, leaves one to question
thoughts real purpose
