heaven on earth

takes my breath away

a fleeting moment

on this summer day..

heaven on earth

comes and goes

like the seasons

natures picture shows..

heaven on earth

far and near

and in those moments

i hold dear..

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..

Snuggle, kitty cat

snuggles are free

better to be indoors

than stuck in a tree

stay indoors

where it is safe

where feral cat’s

can’t get you

and won’t give chase

to a tabby girl

who is mild and sweet

but best not get to close

to the flying critters

that have a beak..



Festival of Leaves 2016: Until We meet Again


Tiny Crabapples on an almost leafless tree


Tiny Hummer relaxing for a minute

leaf hunters we come

we really have fun

it’s only once a year

but it is dear..

to a lady like me

who likes to see

the seasons of change

as they are not the same..

verena’s a great hostess

and she makes the most

of a special time

and Lord willing..

we’ll meet again

next year, online…

FWF Free Write Friday: Image Prompt


The Showing

As Miranda rested her hand on her stomach, her baby-boy stretched his legs, as though to remind her, that he would see her in a few weeks. It brought her comfort, as she fought back tears of not seeing  Brandon’s grandfather among the guests. Brandon, had been raised in a household of very strict religious beliefs that frowned on intimacy before marriage. It was a shock to his family. At this moment, Miranda recalled the heated words Mr. Davis spewed out towards them in his anger.  She vowed to shelter her son from any disappointment in his life. Hopefully when Jeremy was born he would win over  his great grandfather’s heart.  Miranda did not know if God heard her feeble prayers. She had heard from Brandon that God would forgive them and that he was a God of love and understanding. She thought if God was that understanding why couldn’t Mr. Davis forgive them too. As she pondered it was a bittersweet moment. She sighed and took a deep breath and just as she turned her head she caught a glimpse of great grandpa Davis. She was so relieved she could have jumped for joy, but instead,whispered a quiet, thank you!
