a baby 
with chubby cheeks 
big eyes 
an innocent heart 
and overnight
 an intelligent
 funny young PERSON 
with ideas, wit and charm 
they can leave you totally in awe 
for but a moment   
YOU are their guiding hand
YOU teach them 
all that you know 
to be good and right and true
and when it is TIME...
you LET GO
You let them drop from the nest...
and you watch them FLY!

The Touch of Your Hand

{Post: 120/365}
the touch if your hand
on my arm
on my waist
in the small of my back
is a comfort
it is a place
of belonging
and an
outward reflection
of our inner bond
it is a touch
of support
of encouragement
of love
and a visible
of the commitment
and bond
we share together
it is our strength

My Comforter

{Post: 119/365}
Miss Moochie
has a sense
for days when I am 
resting in bed
from pain
or sickness
and always
asks to come in
with me
just sleeping
at the foot of the bed
my companion for the day
but sometimes
coming closer
for a sweet little cuddle
this way
she always brings me
is it
that brings her to me
I don't know
but I am aware that
in these times
to be with me
when I need her
even if I don't 
acknowledge that truth

rays of light
shining in a prism
creates beautiful colours
and purple writes
supercali on the wall
blue, not to be outdone
adds fragilistic
green is confused
but pretending not to be adds
expi to the list
and yellow in the middle
continues with ala
orange adds docious
and red just adds an exclamation point
still confused for a moment
the colours
all speaking at once
suddenly understand
separately we make no sense
but together
we make something

The Power of LOVE


Love is a power
That sets your mind
On fire
Lovesick sighs
And dreams
Of forever
Hope that it is returned
In equal strength
Of desire
And tenderness
Soul smiles
Heart flutters
Imagination unstoppable
Hope soaring high
And then if possible
Even more
When you feel the touch
And know
It is true
It is shared
It is everything!

Poem for Hubby

{Post: 116/365}
I posted an event called Request a Poem asking for 5 words, thoughts, sentiments or themes for a poem.
Hubby gave me:
Banana, repugnant, jackass, bagel and woopty doo
lol here's his poem ;)

bananas on toast
I think not!
unless made with
peanut butter
it would be completely
so says my hubby
jackass that he is!
he'd prefer
cream cheese on a bagel
woopty doo
I says!

{Post: 101/365}
once in awhile
I like to
take a break
from the insanity
running inside my head
and I will
spend the day
in bed
reading books
taking breaks 
to eat
and you know...
and possibly make myself
a cup of tea
but quickly get back to
the story
that has given me
a short escape
from my own reality
and a peek
into a different world
for awhile

{Post: 100/365}
would you rather have
100 bugs
100 rugs
100 jugs
100 thugs
I myself could do without
the thugs
or what about
100 mugs
100 pugs
(if you like pugs)
100 shrugs
100 plugs
or the very best
100 hugs
gimme hugs

I'm tired and silly but it IS my 100th post so that's where the poem came from!


{Post: 99/365}
I dream a dream
and hope
that it will come true
 that it will
allow me
to find the magic
inside of myself
and in swirls
of colourful chaos
and creative impulses
dancing in the sunlight
I will find
not only the magic 
but that I will be able to
share it
to sparkle and shine
with my own light
 and in radiant beauty
I dream a dream
and I HOPE

Jesus cried
with a loud voice
Eli, Eli
lama sabachthani?
My God, My God
why hast thou forsaken me?
Matthew 27:46
and every time
I read the words
my heart breaks
my soul cries
and I understand
a great and deep
abiding love
for ME
for YOU
for ALL
HE gave his life
for us
It was a gift
HE paid in blood
and PAIN
and yet
HE gave it
for that I MUST
cherish LIFE!

Never Give Up

{Post: 96/365}
when the going
gets tough
it gets hard to keep on
but we MUST
lift your eyes upward
tilt your face to the sun
set your chin
face foward
take baby steps 
if need be
but MOVE

Happy Tired

{Post: 94/365}
it is a happy tired
that I feel tonight
after shopping with the girls
and sharing some giggles
and opinions
about LUNCH
my legs are sore
my feet are sore
my heart is content
my mind is settling down
and soon I will sleep
but first I need to share
that I am grateful
for the fun day I had
thank you

What Is Love?

{Post: 93/365}
my answer is this:
love is
a man
putting two
too big hands
in tiny gloves
mixing hair colour
and colouring my hair
which is LONG
and requires two bottles
and a tedious amount of time
to do
and really was NOT
his idea of fun
but he wanted to make me happy
so he did it
and FIRST he also brushed it
THAT is love

Hakuna Matata

{Post: 92/365}
hakuna matata
it means
there are no worries
in Swahili
it is a phrase
the muse and I share
when he reminds me
not to stress
to breath
and not to worry
to be happy
when he says it
i smile
because i immediately
begin singing
Hakuna Matata 
in my head
and thinking...
"it's a problem free
but it WORKS
because then I try
NOT to stress
and NOT to worry
but rather 
to breath
and to BE
in the moment
in the now
without the worry
you know
it's a good idea...
don't worry
be happy!
