FLARE-UP

FLARE-UP

It slithers UP on me

Taking my wheeze away

The misery travels

Throughout my vessel

Excruciating

Throbbing

Zapping me

Every day

All day

I do my finest

To conquer through

I’m so exhausted

Of feeling blue

Help lift my spirits

I beg of you.

VOYAGERS BEWARE

2015-10-29 17.31.01

VOYAGERS BEWARE

It’s a shadowy, dreary night

With a bleak in the air

We can see our wheeze

And sense the goosebumps

Tingling

Up and down our spines

We’re trembling

Buried inside

Horror came over us

Where do we go?

Where can we hide?

He’s coming for us

SO SCARED

Fearing for our lives

Haltingly

Stirring through the woods

Clasping to one another

Will we make it?

Will we make it out?

Will we make it out Alive?

It’s anyone’s guess

After all

Tonight

Is fright night

Voyagers Beware

ROAD TO ETERNITY

2015-10-27 22.06.42

ROAD TO ETERNITY

The moment has breezed in

We need to green light

FAST

Gather your belongings

And don’t flash back.

~~~

A lanky journey ahead

But we need not fus

There are rad things to come

Cast your gear in the bus

~~~

The Road To Eternity

Now, we must travel

For our growth depends on

This very stone and gravel.

MEMORIES OF A FRIEND – In honor of Glenn Dean

FB_IMG_1445965316210

MEMORIES OF A FRIEND

He had an infectious beam

A genial touch

A ponderous soul

He was loved… So much.

~~~

The Ace of one-liners

OUTSTANDING!!!

ABSOLUTELY!!!

His mammoth bear hugs

He’s missed… Profoundly.

~~~

His wife crusades on

To take care of their son

Her fortitude and courage

Shown like no other

Amazes… Everyone.

~~~

I know he’s with them

Every second

Of every day

Guiding his dynasty

The best way he can!

~~~

We pray for Glenn, Tina & Ben

ROMANTIC DANCE

ROMANTIC DANCE

2015-10-26 13.03.22

He extends out his palm

And gently shares mine

He yanks me in

As we start to glide.

Across the boards

We shift like silk

Two frames streaming

Totally in-sync.

He rests me back

Into a dove-like dip

I dole-out a wink

He sets me into a lift.

Around we twirl

Feel like a little girl

He’s the fellow

Of my rainbow

He’s the fellow

In my world.

THE BRIDGE OF LIFE

THE BRIDGE OF LIFE

2015-10-24 00.36.13

Overthrow that bridge

Catch a leap of faith

Uncharted waters may be alarming

BUT…

The “what if’s” are even worse.

~~~~

Don’t let angst hold you back

Take the next footfall

Rent the door

To a new clause in Life.

~~~~

You may be amazed

How well things will go

Your future looks blazing

Go Baby Go!

SISTER FRIENDS

My childhood friend asked me to write and recite a reading, at her wedding about Sister Friends.

I was honored to do so.  This wonderful couple, spent twenty years together before finally saying their wedding vows.  This beautiful ceremony took place two weeks ago.

Below are some photos of  their Amazing day!

SISTER FRIEND

                                                   A sister friend
                                                   They are all heart
                                                   All unique in their intrinsic way
                                                   Such a wonderful blessing
                                                   Cherished friendships
                                                   May they stance the yardstick
                                                   The yardstick of time.
~~~~
                                                   We cycle on
                                                   Through the gnarly times and the faulty
                                                   A bear to lean on
                                                   An ear to entertain
                                                   Compassion and kindness
                                                   Fondness from within
                                                   Unconditional worship
                                                   That’s what we measure
                                                    In a sister friend.
~~~~
                                                   A bond imperishable
                                                   A friendship so dear
                                                   An awareness
                                                   A glance
                                                   A helping hand
                                                   A sisterhood we share
                                                   Far beyond the land.
~~~~
                                                   Come what come may
                                                   We lift each other up
                                                   And guide a sisters hand.
~~~~
                                                   Come what come may
                                                   A sister friend
                                                   Is a life long friend
                                                   A friend
                                                   Who is here to stay.
