AFTER THE RAIN

As clouds float by a breeze caresses 

Sleepy leaves begin to dance

The mountains refreshed by rain, glisten like jewels

Birds are chattering with excitement 

As the sun bursts through to greet the earth.

Escape Artist

I am an escape artist

I escape from the chaos

To the silence of my mind 

Where butterflies 

And angels rule  

I am free 

The sorrows of world 

Are far away 

Sunshine blinds

And rainbows appear

Without the rain

I create

Colorful images

Fill  my brain

And then my canvas

I am the master

Of my own design

Armed with my brush

I am an escape artist

My Art

To Live Again

To live again and never cry

To seek the good and not ask why

To trust a stranger and close your eyes

Believe in dreams and no goodbyes 

To venture out courageously 

To plant a seed and grow a tree

To surrender all so flawlessly 

And give your love unselfishly 

To be satisfied with what you’ve done 

And all the things you’ve overcome  

To stare painful memories in the face

And walk away with poise and grace

To die to self is not the end

Because to die to self

Is to live again

  

 

Good night

Tomorrow is just

A dream away

The lonely stars 

Drift into gray

And moonlight smolders

As fireflies dance

A distant rumble

Where raindrops prance

I hear the echoes

Of memories gone

As winds caress

The breaking dawn

The mind 

A sparrow

Taking flight

Mysterious journey 

Till morning 

Light

  

Prayer for Financial help

Everyone has struggles from time to time and we need to be willing to work and live within our means. But do not ever feel that you cannot ask God for financial help. If your heart is in the right place, and you are willing to trust God, you will be blessed. It will not be a magical appearance of wealth, in fact, it will depend on the strength of your faith, patience and your willingness to work hard. Following Gods plan for you is key, and this can be achieved through prayer and scripture. 

I wrote this prayer when my children were young and we were struggling financially, and I continue to pray it today. Now, I am sharing it with you.

Lord Jesus your love is so great, so wonderful. You truly are an awesome God! I thank you for blessing my family so abundantly. Praise you Lord. Guide me and help me to manage my finances so that money worries do not overcome me.

I need only ask and you answer, speak your name and all is well. Amen. 

 

THE TALKING TREE

chapter 2
Hello! he bellowed
One sunny afternoon 
He startled me so
I began to swoon
In one smooth move
He caught my fall
With branches so big
They made me feel small
He gently set me on my feet
And with his branches 
formed a cozy little seat
It was then
I felt the earth shake
Oh no, I thought 
not an earth quake!
I heard a rumble
Start in his trunk
And out came laughter
Loud and full of spunk
He laughed so hard
The ground was shaking
The leaves he scattered
Would soon need raking
Now all this time 
I tried not to smile
But his infectious laughter
Took me to trial
Laughter I hadn’t heard 
for years
Was escaping my throat 
And filling my ears
And when the laughter
Had died down
Darkness had crept up 
all around 
 
Astonished, I jumped up 
And whispered kinda low
Look it’s gotten dark
and now  I must go!
 

THE TALKING TREE

Chapter 1
I once met a talking tree
As I walked by
He said hello to me
His voice was deep
More like a Bellow
And he swayed his limbs
Like a curious fellow
I tried to look him in the eye
But I couldn’t jump that high
So I looked up and I gave a wave
And he looked down and
Bellowed again
When I turned to walk away
A child pointed to me, to say
That crazy woman’s talking to the tree
Me oh my, oh me, oh me!

A GOOD WOMAN

A good woman 
is hard to find
A good woman is one 
who knows her own mind
She is not just 
a pretty face
This woman exudes 
a simple timeless grace
Her self reliance
Won’t be denied 
And her humble 
demeanor 
Will leave you 
stupefied 
She works hard each day 
with no regrets
And every challenge 
Is promptly met
With omnipotent eyes
She exposes your truth
As layers of lies 
Come falling uncouth 
Deliberately you try 
To not give a damn
But with caring eyes
She offers her hand
She loves to love 
With all her might
To make others happy
Brings her delight
She draws you in 
With her sincere smile 
And keeps your attention
Because that’s her style
She is not perfect 
she will admit
And she can fall to pieces 
bit by bit
She is a good woman
Most people will swear
But to her uninterested husband 
She is merely just fair
 

TRANSITION

I am a butterfly

Extending my wings 

 

Each experience new
And exciting 
Various colors mingle
And fresh new scents
Capture my imagination 
And tantalize my senses
Fascinated by
interlaced threads
I’ve never seen before
I become distracted
Suddenly
Piercing pain
Freezes my body
And fear grips me
I can do nothing
As eight creepy legs
Grab hold of me
And I am spun 
In the same sticky 
Thread that initially
Caught my eye
The spider works 
Intensely, and 
effectively 
Incarcerated me
In his web
What did I do
To this creature
That he should 
Take my freedom?
There was a time
I surrendered 
To building my
Own cocoon
Perhaps this is a 
New Beginning 
And I will emerge 
More magnificent 
Than ever
