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!

February: A Poem

 

February? We think of pink,

When hearts search for that missing link.

To align with a pointed love,

That resembles a flighted dove.

Mid-month, there is Valentine’s Day,

Those loved ones get to have their say.

And, we honor Black History,

So young ones have no mystery, 

About who did both this and that,

Having this, their pride won’t go flat.

Black History is all month long,

This hefty info keeps us strong!

December Bells!

 

Oh, the bells are ringing everywhere,
For those donations that we must share.

The frosty mornings waking us up,
Having us reach for that chocolate cup.

Roasting thoughts warn us of frigid air,
As we shop for those for whom we care.

Christmas cheers and smiles spread all around,
Holiday music adds to the sound

The season is here upon us all,
We etch out the new and have a ball!

Girl Power!

Oh, girl power. Girl power,
Spilling beans by the hour.

Like a bag filled to the brim,
No longer will lights stay dim.

Release it now. Let it go.
So your children can flow!

Sweeping no more under rug,
While heartstrings are in a tug.

Claim your places, queens of chess,
Speak out and tolerate less.
