Where I come from
It’s dark and quiet
Eleven months of the year
Then one fine day
Everything changes
All of a sudden
It’s bright and snowing
And I come to life
After a long hibernation
I love to see my old friend
Elf sitting on the shelf
Right next to...Read More

A Friend
I may not always show I care
The time we’ve spent I'll always share
You've been a friend this is true
Oh, how much I will miss you

Call me when you want to talk
Come to me, we will take a walk
We'll laugh and...Read More

Disarming Disarray

Out there
With her flair for chasing inspiration 
She draws you in her reason
Connecting dots and constellations


She takes you by the hand
Her world as messy as her mind
You need a guide

And as you wade through her chaff
Her heaps of half...Read More

Is my room in such disarray 
That I'm not even seeing straight?
Are those dust bunnies wearing candy wrappers as hats?
Their building an army, I'm under attack!
They start to charge towards me with their toothpick swords
holding shields made of buttons and...Read More

How can I express, 
something that can not be written down, 
unless you can grasp lightening, 
harness thunder, shush a whisper…
or ask your self if you should?

Loved ones go to heaven. 
A few of us, will go to hell.

I go to your house, 
and make tea.
Talk to me. 

I clean your dishes. 
I mop the floor.
I start dinner. 
I am here. 

My life,

Yet, it is you, 
you that is suffering.

Things were quiet, relaxed and calm, 
Things were rosy and fine,
Nothing was going to turn it around, 
Nothing from out or inside,

And then, from nowhere, her upper lip quaked, 
She hid a small grin out of view,
And her eyes softly...Read More

On empty, we drove on. 
There was no place to stop anyway. 
We got in the car before dawn, 
the kids in the back seat. 
the dog with them. 
“Good girl, good girl” stayed silent. 
She knew…

Nobody Cares
Nobody Cares

Somewhere, Anywhere and Everywhere
Everybody's looking for somebody
and nobody cares.
Busybody told Everybody
that Somebody was trying
to get their freak on.
Nobody told Busybody
that Somebody likes to sleep till noon.
But Busybody lied and told Everybody
that Somebody sleeps in the nude.
So, everybody knocked on...Read More

Just not your year
Just not your year

Life is full of surprises,
as you recognize your fear.
An adrenaline fueled 
fight or flight puts 
your behind in gear.

You’d like to think
That you are brave.
You have no problem
facing fear.
But you have a funny feeling

Ugly Face

The law,
says leave no trace, 

but the eyes. 
a hateful rag, 
that smells;
of unclean things,
of sour food, 
and drink, 
of his taste, 
and his smell, 
when he is…

Cover yourself.
cover everything…
about you.

of reflection,

The soft color of red,

Be back soon. 
That is what he said. 

Don’t worry, it is just a phase.

The fire has burned low my love.

A nose is called many names
Some of them quite funny
Sometimes they are spotty
And often very runny
If you are unlucky you could have a bulbous nose
I would rather have a slender one, that's choosy I suppose
Roman noses are much larger and...Read More

In the mall there is a…
plain green tree, 
with tags…
It has names, without faces.
It has stories, with few words. 

Wishes and fishes that make kids happy, 
Any small thing ready at hand.

The small house, mostly quiet.
No one up. 
No one to notice anything. 
Things just happened.

Lights sparkled…
from no where.
The soft sound,
of angel wings,
The ever so sweet smell,
of chocolate and peppermint, 
commingled with apple spice, 
permeates the very air.

I dreamt
I was a big success
a public speaker
much sought after
I was in such high demand
forever invited
to travel the world

One day I was
up north in Nunavut
that’s not too far
from the North Pole
I stepped up to the podium
I looked out at everyone
