March Rolls In!

Shamrock shuffles and frilly ruffles!

shamrock

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!

The Love Month!

adc8ffb3097d714aa667310f03d8deb9

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!

Celebrate 2020!

Dreamcatcher 31

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!

October Colorfest: A Poem

 

download (1)

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 September: A Poem

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.

Trek On!

trek onThose emotions running high,
Must take time to find a sigh!

Release bottled-up feelings,
Soar again to those ceilings.

Write, converse and talk it through,
Don’t sit and roast in the stew.

Find ways of letting it go,
Trek on. Continue to grow!

My Staycation!

Lawn chair relaxing a

 

 

 

 

As I watch others run to and fro,
I just sit here in quiet and know,

That in Christ’s presence, I am free.
So, I slow down, develop and be.

I seek all that He would have me do,
I sincerely listen and pursue.

Both His statutes and mission for me,
I delve deeply so that I may see.

Compromised!

Thrown under the bus1]Though you may be set aglow,
With plenty of things in tow.

At night when no one is near,
Your pillow’s stained with a tear.

You have compromised your soul,
For glitter? A painted bowl?

You have sold those close-by out,
Climbed the ladder with a shout.

Woe, to you who are selfish,
Over time, you look elfish.

You threw some under the bus,
So you could ‘gussy up’, plus,

Hanging with those out to wreck,
Weren’t you thinking? What the heck?

Openess!

Lake 3-16-19

Waves crashing against the shore,
I sit here writing my lore.

Cool, sunny March Saturday,
Looking for the next best way.

Pensive thoughts- clearing the mind,
Clarity.  Not a in bind!

March Sprouts!

untitled

Sprouting buds are bursting through,
Winter’s almost gone. It’s true!

March 20 for a start,
Snow and ice must fall apart.

The weather should lighten up,
Place those daisies in a cup!

Birds are singing. Trees turn green,
St. Patrick’s Day will be seen.

Women’s History Month, too,
Much info on which to chew.

Look up at the rainbow’s hues,
Collect gold. You’ve paid your dues!
