summer mood

DSCN8186-001

summer mood

a bit subdued

heavy heart

from fires that start

loss of life

and loss of home

exhausted bodies

people bemoan

and question why

God bring comfort

and please

 rain down on them..

Where is your soul

in all of that hot air..

your speech is despicable

maybe you don’t care..

you speak often and rudely

to show you are tough..

that kind of behavior

tells me much..

about your character

and I am sorry to say..

there’s a lack of integrity

by the end of the day..

poem

Don’t Regret

don’t regret

that you didn’t say the words

your heart held onto..

stuffed in your inner being

fearful of what might take place

if the truth was spoken..

don’t regret that you didn’t try

to make that call or send that note

that would have put your heart at ease

and free you, like a bird in flight..

don’t regret that you didn’t try to make amends

because pride stood in the way

or you were afraid of what you might say..

don’t regret that you didn’t say thank you

and yes, I love you.. too

don’t regret that you didn’t try

to reach out and now

you wonder why…

1951 Was A Very Good Year

Collages59-003birthday dreams

frozen in time

youth….

is but a memory

those days are behind

my journey not over

so much more

to explore

all the avenues

so many doors

to open…

new territory

to roam

more time to delve

to far off places

where words tumble

and toss

like pebbles in a brook

where the sun meets with the clouds

and paintball the sky

and the moon greets the stars

and shine together

like glitter

in the night

and I will take

what comes my way

with gratitude

for each and every day..

Impressions

impressions

do we leave

behind

nothing is hidden

when we’ve been unkind

we all leave our mark

from words unsaid

or maybe too many

and in that case we may dread

damage control

is often hard

and to admit

that

it’s heart

that matters

not the money

and prestige…

what impressions will you leave?
