Happy Mother's Day

This is for all the mothers,
Who grace this poetry site.
They bring beauty to the world,
With love, peace, and delight.

They have served many meals,
With their compassionate hands.
And regardless of the situation,
Clearly and lovingly, understand.

Their warmth is greatly needed,
With unconditional love.
They’re the lullaby of life;
A gift from God above.

With soothing hands of healing,
Comforting life-complications.
Without a loving mother,
There’d be no generations.

They not only birth children,
But beautiful versus and such.
They’re ordinary precious women,
With a caring nurse’s touch.

They’ve kissed many wounds and
Placed band-aids on knees at play.
I lovingly exclaim to you all,
Rejoice, for this is your day.

Today I will be happy,
Happy all day long.
I won't think about my problems.
I'll fill this day with song.

I won't worry about world affairs,
Or ask the reason why,
Some folks do the things they do,
And wring my hands and sigh.

I won't worry over hurtful things,
That people sometimes say.
I'll ask The Lord to bless them,
When I bow my head to pray.

Petty things that just annoy,
Of these things I won't speak.
I'll be happy as a little bird,
With a french fry in my beak.

After Christmas - In the Moment

The time is after midnight, and I’m in the moment, thinking how another Christmas has come and gone. My spouse and I are tucked in bed, warm and cozy. Outside, white beauty coldly blankets our front lawn. Snickers, our new dog, sleeps peacefully between us. The cat creeps up beside me now. How I love her! How trusting are these creatures God gives us - how pure! Our cat lies down by Snickers. I hear her soothing purr. The visit with our daughter and her family was nice. With gifts, glad hearts and tummies full, we traveled home. More memories to cherish; the old year passes. In the moment - grateful - I finish with this poem.t

Above The Clouds

Above the clouds, I long to be
Among the other things I see
Where I can stand and shout out loud
Here I stand, above a cloud!

Where whispy trails of jets in flight
In blue skies, patchwork quilts of white
While here below I am, a grain of sand
As people travel from a far off land

Above the clouds on a pitch black night
The moon peeps out to share his light
The stars still seem to find a way
To dance around the cloud's display

I'm amazed at the ability of man
To send satellites soaring, like they can
Above the clouds and far beyond
Like they posses a magic wand

But, most majestic of them all
Is that snowy mountain top so tall
Where I can stand and shout out loud
Here I stand, above a cloud!

Peaches and Cream

She was looking my way, I had nothing to say,
Though I'd dreamed that this day would transpire;
With her beaux all around, why would she look at me
With such interest and playful desire?

She was heading my way, what on earth would I say
To the prettiest girl in the town?
And how could I bear all her sunshiny hair
Or her eyes, speckled golden and brown?

I thought, "This is the one! Mercy, here comes the sun!
If I stare, I shall surely be blind:
Though I be somewhat plain, if she choose to remain
I'd be last in the county to mind."

Then my eyes turned away as she sweetly did say
Pretty phrases I cannot recall;
And I mumbled replies, though they might have been lies,
Since I cannot remember at all.

Of that bright day in May but one thing I can say,
She was dressed in a soft yellow gown;
'Twas a lemony hue that was buttery too,
And with eight shiny pearls buttoned down.

Then I asked if she'd dance at the Cunningham's manse,
At the ball on the fourteenth of June;
She replied, "Oh, how good! Yes, I certainly would;
And I hope I shall talk to you soon."

What a wonderful day! Still with nothing to say
I just whistled an old happy tune;
Having primrosy dreams of sweet peaches and cream
As I counted the hours of June.

Lovely Lady Jan

Sweet lady, combination of silliness and laughter, all wrapped up in one sweet sheaf. Amusing limericks, she is definitely a master, so talented, watching in disbelief. Dulcet stories about her special mum, I hold gratitude for her beneficial feedback. So much love held for her darling son, convinced positive energy she'll always attract. ~Written By: Laura Loo~ ~Date Written: February 24, 2016~ Written for a lovely lady...Jan...

Tomorrow Isn't Real

As in a fantasy
my wildest dreams came true.
For you stole my heart and
I fell in love with you.
Weaving smiles into hope
you knew just how to please.
And with uncanny skill
captured my heart with ease.

Held in your soft embrace
a boy became a man.
And shared an adventure
that only lovers can.

My anxieties quelled
I am floating on air.
And dance in the moonlight
like I haven’t a care.

On life’s merry-go-round
I like the way I feel.
For tonight is magic, 
tomorrow isn't real.

The Face of an Angel

So many poemless years,
   Not describing your true beauty.
You’re more than an Angel,
   Here on angelic duty.

Your face echoes truth,
   Of divine radiance on earth.
Your presence warms my soul,
   And gives my life its worth.

You’re the one I think about,
   With an honest heart so true.
I just want to speak from my within,
   And wish a happy birthday to you.

As I bring you a little closer,
   Your angelic dust disappears.
I have always wanted to whisper,
   Happy birthday in your ear. 

Today is the day of reckoning,
   As my lips whisper this greeting.
And praise a wonderful day,
   While in our secret meeting. 

Not a meeting of lustful acts,
   But a meeting of a warm embrace.
I have always been mesmerized,
   When I look upon your face.

Mirrored Refrain

Angelic force,
draping over me, her canopy. 
Unmasking the wonder of this youngster,
her spirits alive within me

You helped erect my "secret window"
Ambitiously chasing what I hunger!
Her spirits alive within me,
unmasking the wonder of this youngster!

Our poetry sessions, I sit and reminisce.
Stress free, under this willow tree
Unmasking the wonder of this youngster,
her spirits alive within me!

When depressed and blue you come through,
relax me when feeling vulgar.
Her spirits alive within me,
unmasking the wonder of this youngster!

Every verse meant to impress this poetess,
an essence of the empress I aim to please! 
Unmasking the wonder of this youngster,
her spirits alive within me!

Harshest critic yet my biggest fan,
imperfections cast asunder
Her spirits alive within me,
Unmasking the wonder of this youngster

Death cannot take the gift I was given,
Unmasking the wonder of this youngster,
her spirits alive within me.

A Nook And A Storybook

A Nook And A Storybook

A busy day, now time to play.
     What I would give to find a nook,
that's bright and cozy, quiet too;
     just me and a great storybook.

A cozy corner left alone
     in comfy chair with window view
of rolling hills and swaying trees;
     a book in hand to start anew.

Romantic story with a plot
     to take me to the land of youth;
entwined in web of their young lives,
     absorbed with fiction or with truth.

Perhaps a covert thriller type
     too difficult to figure out,
will hold suspense until the end
     and me as hostage, without doubt.

Or maybe one's biography
     to teach, inspire me, and learn
how someone famous lived a life
    for all to read about, discern.

What I would give to find a nook
     relaxing with great thoughts to read;
just me and a great storybook...
     a special gift of life indeed.

Happy Birthday

With all my heart and fairly,
Did I offer sweet surprise-
A birthday present early,
An art drawn near sunrise

All night working perfection,
I had gotten the shading right
With the shadow and reflection-
A suave leopard napping tight

He vowed I’d forget him some day
Though little did he know,
A month before my dear’s birthday,
His gift was ready to go

As time went by and quickly,
Fine colors met dark shades
His affections died so swiftly
And he erased the luster away

For the suave leopard in me slept
As long as his heart did rage
My gift through tears had crept
On the perfection of the page

Happy Birthday to you dear,
My present waits to be sent
I will cease these useless tears
For my love is time well spent

~Confusion~ The sun kisses my fresh washed cheeks It’s warming on my face The breeze rustles my just brushed hair The mist disappears, its fingers leaving a wet trace. The birds start to sing They are late it’s already past dawn The insects start to buzz On this fresh brand new morn… We are happy to awake A new day to explore New challenges we take As we exit through our door. A chance to do good or bad The choice is up to you To be happy or be sad Or spread a smile or too. The pink fingers of cloud in the east Mean red sky in the morning Will the old saying come true? Is this a shepherds warning? As the sun set in the west Only sunset just last night The red sky was at its best That should mean shepherds delight… Is it shepherds warning or is it shepherds delight? Now I am so confused, is it morning still or night? Is it going to be fine, or are storms on the way? I wish the bloody shepherds would make their minds up today.

Today will be a good day.
I won't complain and moan,
About all that I do not have,
Count curses all alone.

Instead I'll count my blessings,
Thank Him for what is mine;
Appreciate what He has done,
To make my life sublime;

For others do not have the things,
That I just take for granted;
Good food, good clothes a place to live,
It's really as I planned it.

Though everything is not the way,
I'd have it, truth to tell,
He's satisfied my every need,
Most wants supplied as well.

I have all that I really need.
I really can't complain.
Though some have more, it's still just fine,
For we aren't all the same.

We each are blessed according to,
What's best for you and me.
It's personal and custom made,
For personalities.

Today I will appreciate,
All He has done for me.
For home, and health and happiness,
For my security.

Cyclothymia and Depression - A collaboration with Darren White:

The parachute just will not open, As I spiraled, free falling to the ground, This nightmare is happening again, Never able to leave this merry-go-round. Another day of struggle and strife, In a throat hold deadly dangerous grip, I’ve lost the concept and meaning of life, Drowned in self-pity waters I do dip. Love can neither rescue or save me, Falling faster than the pouring rain, On this rafter lost on the high sea, I know in my heart I have nothing to gain. They say that misery adores company, In my case, this is neither right nor true, Wishing that I could one day see, And live a life never feeling blue. *** The other side of me is light and free As I'm soaring the skies like an eagle High and jubilant, nothing escapes me On top of the world, a ruler, regal Who does need sleep? I don't, I'm writing Poem after poem, and in between I paint, play guitar, I am thriving The most wonderful person ever seen I am at full speed, creative high tide No one can follow, I love you all All that worried me I now push aside Trying to forget about my next fall... Why can't I have some balance, always! Where I'm creative, and not feel bad Where I can sleep, happiness stays Without knowing that I'll soon be sad.

Can I rest my weary head on you? There is nowhere else to be Just hear your heart, hear it to Beat its steady beat for me Can we be so quiet here? There is nothing I can say No words in me, so much fear You cannot make it go away Just be for a while, just be So I can sleep, not be afraid Because I know that I'll badly Need every soothing thing you said To feel that I am still alive That I am worth to be around That I am here with you, I've Won this time, feel ground. *** Meme by Mel Copyright Darren White September 20, 2016

Tribute to the jester

You tango, you twirl in tangerine tails, 
With ragged red’n’black blouse and shoes
Little leather flimsy flopsy boots with dinky tink balls, 
Balls that ding a ling to amuse

The crowd's at the court in front of the king, 
Your mandolin plays a short song,
A song that brings smiles to everyone’s eyes, 
Making everyone sing right along

And then you swing your motley cap’n’bell hat, 
Beaded bells all bounce to a beat
As you juggle and joke and tell a beautiful story,
Your magic’s an invisible discrete.

Everyone’s happy when you perform for the king, 
Everyone loves you in town
You're the king’s street performer in red and black stripes, 
His jester, his fool, you’re his clown.

Being a Grandparent Makes Me Happy


		Though I can't give a full account
		of all the Lord has given me,
		I can say that my list begins
		with life, His love, and family.

		I have a daughter, son-in-law,
		two grandkids, and fulfilling days.
		While parents work, I'm with the kids,
		a girl and boy I love to praise.

		I claim this opportunity
		to show them honor with an ode.
		I'm gratetul to be "Mimi" now.
		No sweeter name could be bestowed.

		A pleasing parallel exists
		in this relationship we share.
		Their need for guidance every day
		fulfills my need to love and care.

		I'm proud to be their referee,
		their teacher, cook, mentor, and friend,
		a monitor of TV shows,
		the one who says when play must end.

		Though sometimes they get on my nerves,
		they keep me sane and active too.
		I thank the Lord for them each day.
		Without those kids, what would I do?

Compassionate lovely siren
You didn't keep your silence
Words you utter -  timeless
To you my greatest reliance

Your love as huge as a giant
As your heart immensely pliant
Needless more to secure a license
Evermore you're my loyal alliance

More than a systematic science
Greater than a credible titan
Guarding me not to be frightened
Always my ways you enlightened

More than these
More than a diamond, 
That's how you are 'MA
My dearest Mama

Happy Husband Hears No Alarm

Waking with a smile, eyes bouncing green, dear husband
makes me hold back my scream, desire to pull over sheets.
Later, I find you sitting like Buddha, gazing at the land,
shifting as each birds lifts and soars and tweet tweets.

I watch you in silence, pick up slippers, my piles of papers
find my own breakfast to leave you undisturbed in dream,
you thank me so many ways, your face relaxed, finger tapers
held on belly, sometimes I wonder if you see past the gleam

Of heavenly contentment, lap of pool, sun blazing warm
the face so bruised by clenched jaw now so smooth
I never dare to battle you, drive you against walls or alarm.
Retirement is a silence of weighty falling before well oiled groove.

Five Sisters

To buy a star, I wouldn’t buy just one,
For one all by itself cannot be fun.
I’d buy a group, and five to be precise
because two, three or four would not suffice.

It’s five I want, and five that I would buy,
and if you ask me, I will tell you why.
A special daughter each would represent,
Our mother’s shining dears, all heaven-sent.

Each one so lovely, mother says, So GOOD.
We came to earth to share a childhood!
With eyes so light, and dimples when we smile;
alike and yet distinctive in our style.

Such happy memories and so few bad.
What secrets shared, what revelry we had.
Divided now, we each live far away
from one another; what a happy day. . . 

If once again together I might be
with Thea, Jenny, Dori, Melanie. . . 
And give them something named for what we are:
“Five Sisters,” for we each deserve a star!

Magic Beans

These wonderful magic beans are first roasted and ground
Then brewed and served to many a coffee lovers delight
Lattes, Turkish,  Macchiatos and so many, many more
But for me, regular, room for cream, always tastes just right

When the day is gray and its difficult to get out of bed
A good coffee is what you need to start you moven'
I believe its caffeine that really does the wake-up trick
And the warmth and  flavor get your body grooven'

This aromatic drink has been around for many centuries
For almost all of us, enriching and enlivening our day
Just ask Starbucks, for they have found the rainbow's end
For these magic beans we are more than willing to pay

Happy Anniversary Sweetie

Twenty one years and counting
I'm blessed to be with you dear
No better place in the world
Than being with you right here

From the first day I met you
My soul was finally set free
I couldn't believe an angel
Was meant as a gift for me

Plans had been set in motion
Orchestrated by God's hand
The shifting of time and space
We heeded our Lord's command

Love would not be possible
Without complicated plan
Our worlds had been far apart
Until I became your man

Moments they became hours
Until they turned into years
I've been gifted with true joy
You have wiped away my tears

Being with you is easy
I look forward to each day
Interesting conversations
I love the way that we play

You are my fountain of youth
An elixir for my soul
I'm thankful to be with you
With you sweetie I am whole

Happy Anniversary my love.
Thanks for the best years of my life.
