Dirty bird

A little bird 
Dropped a little turd

Upon my clean windshield
I pushed the button but no fluid did it yield

My wipers swiped and smeared a stripe
And now I'm mad enough to fight

I grabbed a bottle to sprinkle the stain 
But the wind took it from me to my disdain 

Cursing the bird
With a dirty word

I hear a dreadful sound
I then pull over and receive a fine for throwing litter on the ground

So if a bird drops you a turd and the fluid is all dry
Don't fret don't curse don't even cry

Just pull over and clean the spot
And save yourself alot

When words flow freely
Emotions released in air
Love and peace prevail

I dance

7 may 2012 4:50 PM

I dance in the sunlight 
I dance in the rain

I dance when I'm happy
I dance when there's pain

Because it frees my soul
And it lets me go
to a higher place
to a higher praise
With You ohhhh with You
that's right

I dance to remember
I dance to forget

I dance in a dream land
I dance in reality 

Because I dance for You 
And You take me there 
to that higher place 
to that higher praise.....with You

Mothers love 
Mothers have patience
 Mothers remember when and understand
 Mothers protect and nurture
 Mothers listen and impathize
 Mothers correct and explain
 Mothers play and teach
 Mothers hold and be quiet
 Mothers laugh and smile
 Mothers cry and pray
 Mothers smile 
Is this you or someone you should be.
 Mothers are like dads they make mystakes too 
But they always love you no matter what you do
Happy Mothers day Aunt Virgie and thank you for all you are

Send in the dogs

05 September 2015   6:30 AM

Early morning start to my day

The dogs have jumped onto my bed to play

Goofy and rested and full of energy

Wrestling and growling what a site to see

The joy in their eyes like a child's smile

Rolling and tumbling making me forget for awhile

I could be annoyed because I did not want to get up

But I see it as God tickling his child through these pups

I dreamed of my eldest child last night

I played with her and she giggled in delight

God must have known that I would awake and feel alone

So he sent in the pups to make me laugh and know that I am not alone

Kiss me deeply

5:18 PM  29 sept 2014

Kiss me deeply through my body to soul
Bond with me and make me whole

In life I've wandered lost and alone
I feel now that I've found my home

Gazing through your windows into your home
I see you so kind so beautiful, your heart all aglow

I see my name written deep within
I hear your longing cry " oh where have you been"

Our bodies hold tight our hearts catch fire
Soul to soul we are one desire

To live and grow to die and be free
I with you and you with me

Autumn leaves

4:50 PM 4 oct 2014

Watching children play in the autumn leaves
Takes me back in time to fond memories

Autumn colors dark and bright
Raking leaves from noon till night

Giant piles of colorful fun
Leaping in then out for a run

Around the the yard can't catch me
Then back into the pile of leaves

Tunneling through to the other side
OUCH a  stick poke in the eye 

Popping up to rub it well
Hoping its not to red for mom to tell

Then looking around at the mess I made
I grab the rake and clean it up just so I can make it another day

We danced in that moment

8:10 AM  06 oct 2014

Lean on me such a beautiful song
Holding her in my arms so long

So long was the moment, only and minute or two
Hearts embraced and souls entwined as lovers tend to do

We were lost and together nothing else really mattered
Our lives all at once in that place was gathered

Singing softly in her ear 
Holding her heart so dear

I feel emotion overpowering reality as we drift away
So precious a moment just a speck in one day

A diamond with a heart of gold rare and precious one of a kind
Would be bliss to live just in that moment and to the rest of the world be blind

We held each other and cried as we danced in that moment.

A very chocolate day to you

9:35 AM  29 Oct 2014

A very chocolate day to you
Sweet and soft as the morning dew

Filled with smiles and a sugar rush
And sincere compliments that make you blush

Popularity in your circle of friends
Laughter that sounds over and over again

Warm hearts melting to a creamy flow
Love spreading round where ever you go

Beyond the worm hole

9:29 PM  20 Aug 2015

Flying through space, time seems an illusion
No sun to regulate day nor night, no jobs or recreation to require your inclusion

Leaving behind cares, worries and frustration
Looking only forward toward a new destination

Going where you have never been
Not knowing whom or what you may befriend

There is the gateway to the galaxy next door
A worm hole through space where time is ignored

What will I find, whom will I meet
What will I see, where will I set my feet

A new light a new time
A new adventure to find

Just beyond the worm hole
A new life and new goal
