As we share our gifts,
We overcome those tiffs.
And with this summer’s end,
We truly turn the bend.
And look for bright, new hope,
Freshly armed, we can cope.
With whatever that comes,
We can handle with sums,
Of vested skills, know-how,
With an unwrinkled brow!

When helping those dear friends,
And regardless of their sins.
Real or imagined affronts,
Causing sleepless nights and grunts.
I give what I have to thee.
And no. You don’t owe me!
A farthing nor one red cent,
For all my wisdom is lent,
You don’t owe me anything,
For my blessings He will bring.
The empty well will refill,
As I reflect and be still!

We have been closed for oh, so long,
Our stores, shops reopen with song.
Humming work songs as we awake,
Though George Floyd’s death made us all shake.
Brandishing, bustling, we lunge through,
Wiping tears, we speak things more true.
So good to get back in the swing,
Altered, we advance with a zing!

The fresh beauty of splendid May,
Soft pastels make us sigh and say,
It’s here at last! We deeply breathe,
Palms upturned; ready to receive.
Long strolls in the welcoming sun,
Frolicking, smiling. So much fun!

As we daily grieve our losses,
And life continues to toss us,
We are being made to look up,
In the morning, noon and at sup.
We plead for mercy from above,
Watch for the flight of a small dove.
Offering us glimmers of hope,
So we can breathe and stop the mope.
And know the Master has a plan,
In His time, He will heal the land.

( In honor of National Poetry Month)
Shamrock shuffles and frilly ruffles!
Both connote the month of March,
Wearing clothes that need that starch!
Spring peaks its hidden head out,
Birds are chirping all about.
Announcing the warmth of days,
Waking from that sleepy haze.
Of winter’s cold, barren gloom,
March rolls in with a soft boom!

Pink, loving thoughts set hearts aglow,
With warm spongy feelings in tow.
February- the month of love,
We place sentiments high above.
Go and buy those items of red,
Roses, candy, cards. Enough said.
It’s time to gather, greet and meet,
Make time for those who are quite sweet!

Wow! It’s a brand, new decade,
Puts a lot on all folks’ plate.
We have much to live up to,
Many dreams are overdue.
Also, a sparkling New Year
Has burst forth with a big cheer.
As some hearty dreams come true,
Dreamcatchers block the bad, blue.
Add good and delete the wrong.
Sound the trumpet. Sing a song!

Autumn leaves flutter to the ground,
Racked piles are gathered in the round.
Those yards are full of autumn flairs,
Rich colors soothing us in pairs.
Cooler temps slow our thinking,
Calm, buoyant ideas, not sinking.
Pumpkins cut in all types of shapes,
Remind us to put on warm capes!

Fair weather September often makes,
Fair friendships evolve for our sakes.
Back to school our children must go,
Digging in to learn and deeply sow.
The three R’s a good student still needs,
To accomplish great, wonderful deeds.
Rituals and routines keep them grounded,
Produces citizens- well-rounded.
