Autumn Delight

The universe gives us gifts

should we choose to pay attention

Each and every season has unique

and rare gifts to share

But…

The gifts of Autumn are the

most special to me

Jeweled toned leaves that

change the view daily are

are not only a constant

but amazing delight to me

Like an ever-changing

panoramic slide show

giving me awe and wonder

in their brilliant colors

Even after they begin to

fall and blanket the ground

and road ways their

brilliance continues …

Poet David Whyte said it best:

“… a shimmering bed of

dry leaves …”

Inviting the child in me

to pile them up and enjoy

the fun of falling into

a pile of nature’s jewels …

Joy in a Jar

Joy in a Jar

Flowers are an important

part of my life

They bring me happiness

when nothing else can

For country girls

there is nothing better

than a simple arrangement

a handful of flowers dropped

casually into a Mason Jar

to make us smile …

Music O’Clock

Music O’Clock

When life becomes much

to weary to continue

When sadness sets in

for the day

I turn to music to

soothe my soul

Calm my fears

And…

Lift my spirits when

nothing else can

 

I am an eclectic

listener …

everything from

classical to rock

Jazz to Zydeco

Not just the beat…

the melody…

But…

the words …

All combined to

mold the moment

and change the

course of my day …

Poems Inside …

Every day…

Every night…

More times than

I can count

Poetry flows through

my mind

Some are fleeting and

never are caught

long enough to find

a home … either

on paper

or …

my computer screen

 

My life is a series of

Poems …

Some good …

Most not …

But poems nevertheless

that define me…

my life…

my struggles…

my joy…

my tears…

my pain…

Words that cannot hide

in the deep dark

recesses of my mind …

Swinging Bridge – Day 17 April PAD

Swinging Bridge

Growing up we

spent time at the

Swinging Bridge

spanning the Colorado

River dividing two

Central Texas counties

We would run across

shouting with joy

and setting the

bridge into motion

An elaborate Rope and

Lumber affair back then

It saw hay-rides…

school field trips…

necking in the moonlight…

And…

way too many late-night

keg parties where some

drunk fool jumped into

the river below and

could not figure out

how to get climb

the river bank

Today…

it has been refurbished

for at least the second

time

Now being held high

above the Colorado with

huge steel ropes attached

to cement stanchions on

each end…

Yet…

It still has its

wooden deck and a

nice sway when

driven across

Or…

better yet…

when a herd of

screaming children

experience the joy

of running from

one county to

the next!

Remembrance…

The Season of Christmas
is upon us once again

Personally I have so
much to be thankful for
as I look back over
the past year

Good friends…
Abundance in my life…
Intertwined with
daily struggles

Remembering those no
longer with us
Brings both joy
and sadness
Missing their presence
Yet…
Remembering them
with Love...

Rain Down

Low and sweet
Your soul rains
down on mine
Bringing a music
only we can hear

Smile…

An open window
Lacy curtains gently
blowing in the breeze
 
She turns
Remembering…
That day long ago
 
When…
 
On an afternoon
just like this 
She first gave 
her heart away
 
That was long ago
All she has left
are Memories
 
And…
 
She smiles…

*RAGE…

There comes a time
for all of us toward
the end of our time
to decide…
Do we hang on
and fight…rage
 
Or…
 
Do we let go
gracefully…
willingly…
accepting…
what the fates
have in store
the inevitable…
 
My decision is
not clear…
Will I rage at
the end
 
Or…
 
Will I turn my
eyes to the light
and go willingly…
peacefully…
joyfully…
with a smile 
on my face

“… Rage, rage against the dying of the light.”

 

Halcyon Days

Halcyon Days

Gone are the times
Those summer days
When all we needed
was one another
 
Halcyon Days…
That left us hungry
Yet…
Only for each other
That left us thirsty
Yet…
The only quench was
a deep kiss
 
We only needed
love…
laughter…
sun…
And ~
time…
 
Days spent in
each other’s arms
The only solace…
The only need…
The only respite…
 
Youth spent
Yet ~
Wants…
Needs…
Desires…
Still the same
 
I long for those days
Those Halcyon Days…
Wrapped in your strong arms
Holding me…
Leading me…
Teaching me…
to live my life
Enjoy myself to
the fullest
To love…
 
Old does not
mean aged…
Nor forgetful
of what once was
 
Old…
gives those memories
those days of youth
spent in love and longing…
desire and fulfillment
 
Searching still for the
will and passion to continue
