I Wait…

And…

I wait

Yet again

for the call that

never comes

 

And…

I wait

because that

is expected

of me

 

And…

I wait

knowing what

I hope for

will never

happen

 

And…

I wait

Because there

is nothing

else I can do

 

So…

 

I WAIT…

New Year

On this last Tuesday

night of the year

I reflect…

Much to be thankful

for this year

And…ith a new year

Much I regret

Things unsaid

Things undone

Not enough

“I LOVE YOUs”

 

With new year

around the corner

comes a chance to

right wrongs and

have a do-over or two

Time for a leap of faith

Putting myself

out there…

on the line…

 

To either get what

I need

OR…

Be devastated

Yet again…

Fair

Fair

My father’s standard answer

when anyone asked how he was

“… Fair,” he would say.

 

One word with so many

different meanings

Fair…

 

The sky was fair…

She was a fair beauty…

His disposition was fair…

Let’s go to the fair…

The child’s discipline was fair…

 

Yet…

 

What doe it really

mean?

How do we know

what fair really is

in all these different

situations?

 

Fair…

Masks …

Masks

Masks…

We all wear them

Some hide more than others

 

Some give a true glimpse

of the person wearing it

Others totally obscure and

create a different persona

 

No one really sees anything

They all want to be…

To project…

Something they are NOT

 

Yet…

 

Each mask…

Each wearer…

Has a crack that lets

their soul seep through

 

Am I the only one

who has the Mask that

lets me

Really SEE…

Journey

Journey

I try every day
to stay steady
keep the course
one foot in front
of the other

Looking into the
deep dark sky…
Early morning and
Late night
I see stars…
Stars that give
meaning…
hope…
a future to look
toward and being
able to continue
a positive path
that leads to
the rest of my 
Life...

Spirit…

We are all parts
of the Universe
Moonbeams…
Stardust…
Ancient beings
and Spirits

Our lives are spent
looking for others…
That special soul
the one that
feels like home

The lucky ones
find at least one
other home
The Blesses fine
more than one

Christmas Night

Christmas Night

The crescent moon
hanging at an angle
like an open bowl

It catches stars and
drips moonbeams
Enough light to guide
me through my nightly 
chores

Trees dancing in the
wind as the new comer
follows me
A snow-white kitten
who appeared the night
before Christmas Eve
acting as though it
knows me…
belongs to me...

To my knowledge
none of the barn Queens
have kittens that age

A mystery…
Just as much as the
sudden disappearance
of my favorite young
Tom and tiny gray and 
white kitten who both
disappeared after
Thanksgiving

One to replace two …
a gift from 
Karma?

Christmas Eve

Childhood memories 
when I still believed…
In Magic…
In Mystery…
In Wonders...

Twinkling lights
Shiny tinsel
Presents under a
hand-cut cedar tree

The long wait is over
Gifts exchanged
Wrapping strewn everywhere
Driving the neighborhood 
to see all the lights 
and decorations

Early to bed so
Santa could arrive
Childhood memories
and traditions…
Christmas Eve...

Come Darkness, Come Light

This is a Christmas song new to me this year and sung by one of my favorite singer song writers Mary Chapin Carpenter.  Listen to the song … then a poem follows.


Christmas time again and
music is my salvation
So many new to me songs…
So many songs that touch
me deeply...

This time of year is
difficult for me since
I am the end of my line
and have no remaining family

Music is the only thing
that makes the Holidays
bearable for me

Rebuilding Me

Rebuilding Me

This may sound selfish
and self-serving
But…
I am at a point in my
life when I must take
care of ME

Too long I have been
floating on the fringes
of people who tell me
I matter…
they care for me…
Yet…
Actions never match
those words

The action or lack
thereof only serve
to cause me pain and
have destroyed all
trust that I have
in others

The only person that
needs to be taken 
care of right now is
ME...

I have to focus on
the rebuilding of 
myself…
Release those fake
people
those false friends
And…
Focus on ME…
my needs…
my desires...

Going forward into
an uncertain future
Yet…
A future that focuses
on what is important
one that focuses on
those positive aspects
and few positive people

Rebuilding trust where
I can find it
While releasing and
transforming the
negative to come 
to the ME I deserve...
