My Son Moon and Star ~
Approaching the celebration of his Birth
cherishing the gift I received
within weeks of conception I knew
something amazing was in Creation ~
the Stars held a party
sending me with one of their own
Gazing at 3 shooting stars twinkling crossing the sky
It was magic It was destiny taking its flight.
In love with an October full moon
drawing and painting I liked
thinking of Vincent Van Gogh ~
caught in a loss of time
Hours going by as choosing my color
a wittness to three falling stars
A clear night sky sparkle's
A once Famous Star was sent
inspiring the tiny child inside ~
Never a doubt in my mind at all
child bearing was worth any pain received
yours will be in a pursuit of a dream ~
one to cherish and hold
My Son was born the following August ~
working on the set of Grimm 3rd season this year
as the set of Leverage for 3 years .
Has done a Indie movie here
In Paris it was seen and honored
coming soon filmed in Portland ~
"The House of Last Things "
awaiting the credits , you will see
1st Assistant Director ~ production assistant
My Young Lion Mans dream ~
A proud mom I watch every show and the credits
as foretold in a whisper to me 25 years ago
My Son & Moon and Star
A name you will all know ~
Happy Birthday to my creative Son
you will exist in my heart forever~
The songbirds are singing
It's another sunshine day
A light breeze is blowing
Spring is here to stay
Dressed in a flowered sundress
Underneath the shining rays
Visions dance before me
An angel wants to play
Her skin like the cool of winter
Her hair is the colors of fall
With a voice sweetly singing
I offer her my southern drawl
The lilacs blossom around her
Apple trees tease open their flowers
I watch the angel in the sundress
Spin in my visions for hours
I offer her some sweet tea
To quench her mighty thirst
She readily declined me
For the dance, she was submersed
As the sun went to sleep
The moon offered up its light
My angel kept dancing
With no sundress in sight.
She danced into my arms
All over this country boys heart
I love that angel in a sundress
Forever, Until death do us part
She's highly sophisticated and full of undefiled wisdom
Yet a crowned Duchess in a paradise kingdom
Quite a beautiful angel flying with black wings
Covered in gold jewelry and precious things
She dresses like the women of ancient Egyptian class
Her wealth is generous and her money grows like grass
She loves orange scented candles with dark room flame
She rules thirty legions of soldiers and Bune is her name
Her comely warrior voice can wake and relocate the dead
Her armies of soldiers gather around the cemetery
She is brave and deserves a princessly crown on her head
Her facility of speech and flair for words is legendary
A beautiful queen to be treated with respect and honor
Instead of blasphemy,wanton abuse and fictional horror
When the angels of love are on strike
And the future looks bleak
When your love is absent
Casting me into the hands of torment
My heart cries, turning blue
Crying out for nobody but you.
When my love mountain becomes a valley
And I find myself in lovelessness alley
When my love stream stops flowing
And my love wind stops blowing
I run the lenght of the earth
Seeking your love's might.
When my fountain of love is cut short
And aloneness gives me a shot
When I look down the deep blue sea
And it appears it is coming for me
I grope around in despair
Hopefully longing to find protection in you.
When I'm being thrashed by lovelessness
And I'm held hostage by helplessness
When I can't find anyone to anoint my day
And I find myself drifting away
I close my eyes and spread my arms
Wishing you'll materialize in my arms.
When I look up to the sky
And see my wishes passing me by
When I'm abandoned and deserted by brightness
And I'm fiercely attacked by darkness
My heart goes on
Searching for you my sun.

Your hands are like sunshine that
warms the inner parts of my soul.
The rays warming my inner being,
keeps me thinking of how the colors
of the flowers are so vibrant and
powerful in their activity.
As the flowers dance in a slight breeze,
the sun gives way to darkness and the night sky embraces the stars so numerous,
so shiny, so many.
As the night fades, the sun warms the day,
The breeze picks up the flowers in a dance, and your hands warm my soul again,
with the rays from the suns warmth and the shadows of the colors show the love inside your touch.

The road may seem tough right now like an endless uphill climb.
And you may feel that all lifes struggles is one big waste of time.
Everyone around you seems happy and not stressed
Yet each and everyday you can’t help but feel more depressed.
Even though the sun may shine and the day is really bright
All you see is dark clouds looming with only moonless nights.
Looking all around, you see people who pretend to care
And when you wana speak it feels like they wish they weren’t there.
You build up hate and anger and get frustrated with everyone around
You isolate yourself from the world and in your own sorrows you begin to drown.
You feel like you are all alone and there’s nobody that you can rely on
It seems like another endless battle that just can’t be won.
You feel like giving up and so start losing all your faith.
Wishing that your life would somehow end without the entire wait.
This is where you have to believe and restore faith in yourself again
And realize you are not alone, there are many who will help ease the pain.
I know you’ll find it hard to believe that what I’m saying is true
But when the dark clouds break away, the sun will shine right through.
They will make that up hill climb easier for you to take
and then u will find a smooth road that will cause you no more heartache.
They will be there to hug you tight and listen to all you have to say
Even if you don’t wana speak, they will by your side each day.
You don’t have to be alone or pretend that you’re okay.
They can see your fears and help to end the feeling of dismay.
They will never let you go through another difficult path.
But should you cross that way again, they’ll carry you from the start.
So my dear friend, whenever you feel really down.
Remember you have people here to help you keep strong.
They are no superheroes or have powers of any sort.
But they are just ordinary people, who will be here to always support.
They are people who genuinely care and will bring those tears to an end.
Sent with love from God above, they are Angels in the form of Friends….
Living in an endless nightmare
Where the flowers never bloom
Where the sun doesn't shine
And the river's never flow
As life changes from day to day
And their eyes and grins are all we find
Not caring about our destiny or our fate
Why do we feel the way we do
To learn, to explore, to understand the world
Is it right to feel so blue
To feel like you have no purpose in life
To feel like you've been violated inside-out
Dreaming of far off places to where the birds fly free
And all our greatest dreams become more than real
As the blue bird shed's it's happiness
To all of us who are so blind
Yet what is happiness to those who mourn
Or those who weep over what's been done
Each so different, yet each the same
Created equal for a purpose, to love one another
The fight between life and death is hard to see
But the answer is not ours to hold
We must each find our path's in life
Where we each make mistakes that change our ways
As the rain pours down to bring new life
A single breath is but a whisper
And a shallow heartbeat that is so clear
Our minds dance, dance in the dead of night
While the monster so true gets three to five
The innocence of a young girl is so blind
Where from day in and day out she is left with life
No remorse for this lonesome dove while she flies overhead
Like the Angel she is she wishes it to end
For them to help, yet leave her alone
For them to see how hurt she feels
Like being left alone by the stump of a tree
As an Angel may spread it's wings
To reveal its masked identity
We are lost in our words from our hearts
Like the sun that shines so bright
Like the secrets of an innocent soul
All is lost in the abyss of nothingness
Where fire reins free as if like a bird
But with no feeling like the devil himself
As a lost soul may find a way to far beyond
It carries with it a message of hope, peace and love
For until next time we shall have to wait
For the secret to life, death and beyond even that.
I do not know?
A Picnic on the Moon
If the sun doesn’t come up tomorrow and our time on earth is through
I can say I loved an angel and that angel you know was you
A cherubim without wings with a radiance all your own
I now know you are a blessing and I have reaped what I have sewn
Walking together hand in hand through the heavens up so high
Sharing a few smiles as we dance across the sky
Chasing away the clouds as we hurdle the mountain tops
Riding on the winds of time and hoping the ride never stops
Reaching up towards the heavens as I grab a star passing by
And have a picnic on the moon with a sparkle in my eye
Time will have no meaning as we sit there on the sand
As we gaze down on the earth while we hold each others hand
Waiting on a comet that will show us the way to heaven above
Spreading some joyful cheer in a mansion built on love
I was lucky to find an angel one that didn’t have wings
She made the colors of the rainbow and the other angels sing
So if the sun doesn’t come up tomorrow and my time on earth is done
I found an un-winged angel that I knew was the very one
That would hold my hand forever as we danced across the sky
Knowing we would share our lives forever in the heavens up so high
in this dream
to write beautiful
is to one
in the soul
having two suns
a dark spirit
creeps in shadows
with the light
is with you
when i look
upon you darling
as my sun
floating emotions wings
my sun shining
for you darling
when i look
into those eyes
shine inner beauty
a stunning soul
the most precious
sanctuary with love
Abandoned on the precipice slowly you step to the view
Looking down at sand and stone is this the end your due
Thinning air as the wind grows its persistence against you
Upward you look past the clouds of white and sky of blue
Memories are insistent while within yourself you debate
Can the wind carry me up or is the fall below my true fate
Fear is your companion while defiance solidifies your state
Time is impatient ever watching as you linger making it wait
Stepping back from the abyss dusted earth carries and clings
Gathering your storm focused on what your decision brings
Perpetual silence until within the coil a softened voice sings
Deepened breath and open eyes as you spread your wings
Stretched and free the clouds break as you feel ready to fly
Running fast as you race to the edge never saying goodbye
Illuminating sun inspires and glimmers to a tear in your eye
Leaping over what looms wings out you reach up for the sky
Truth flees as you start to fall could you have been mistaken
The sun dissipates the feathers pull away your hope is shaken
Crashing into sand and stone as from this dream you awaken
Chains rattle you’re still the winged captive forced to be forsaken
