Poem

A Distant Time

Before I go
I’ll skip a stone
Rings counted in the wake

Look back and smile
Before I go
Reflections on the lake

The time has come
Beyond the fields
My journey starts today

No wish to wait
The time has come
Forthwith and underway…

A house of clouds
Above the hill
Its door propped open wide

I say my prayers
Then cross my heart
Up stairs, to step inside

Famous Quotes

Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets. So, love the people who treat you right, forgive the ones who don’t and believe that everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance, take it. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said it’d be easy, they just promised it would be worth it.

Poem of Dreaming

PHOTO CREDIT: modified photo from unsplash.com.

Some may say she’s perfect
She’ll tell you otherwise
Aware that she has faults
There’s no need for disguise

Her shy smile and brown eyes
Each melt my heart away
Plus, an inner beauty
She’s more than just okay

The time to share is now
While in the Spring of life
And were my wish fulfilled
Come Fall, she’d be my wife

Yes, I know I’m dreaming
Though hope to see the light
Thinking of her daily
And wanting what feels right

Of course, a few things would need to change. For starters, it certainly would be nice if she’d remove my name from being blacklisted on her site at WordPress. It would also be charitable if my emails were no longer filtered into her trash bin. And, on occasion, she could use Twitter to read some of the messages & comments I’ve left for her. Perhaps, as an act of goodwill, she might like a single post on my web site…sometime. Lastly, if she would refrain from associating my name with the term ‘devil’ – I think that would be helpful, too. Barring these few exceptions, the future looks bright!!!

Yes, I know I’m dreaming.

Poem In Response

Inspired by a friend, writer Carla Milho & her recent work, “Rest In Peace” – where she discusses the gift of life, present challenges, and an optimistic future – I wrote this short poem in response

The dark corners of empty rooms
Negative events of the past
I’ll put aside such memories
Like ghosts not meant to last.

Instead, the sounds of happiness
From friends who really care
This miracle of life, so grand
It’s mine – to live and share.

My dreams ahead, pursued with hope
I’ll focus on the positive
Because the best is yet to come
And, yes, I’ve got so much to give!
