Poetry, creative writing and a desire to inspire….. Hebrews 11:1 – Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.


If At First You Don’t Suceed…Yeah You Know

Almost in the palm of my hand

It slips through my fingers like grains of sand

Yet I give it the old college try without a degree 

Try, try, try, until you suceed

Positive thoughts and affirmations I speak

Reading the scriptures for a spiritual tweak

Hop on one leg and stand on one hand

Pilates, yoga and doing the best that I can

Brain power churning 

Will power burning 

The little train that could

Persevering as I should

Turning that frown upside down

Out smiling most mimes and clowns

“Oh, hello there!” Now go on and have a good day

Neither let man, beast or silly things stand in your way

Press Zero For The Operator 

I used to hear stories about this contraption 

How people used it to communicate 

I heard it was a lot faster than carrier pigeon (just slightly more expensive)

Now I find myself in a conundrum 

Running late for a date (the all important first date)

My cell phone is dead 🙄

There is no instruction manual for this ancient artifact 

Usually a red phone is for emergency 

I wonder why the people at the museum are staring at me staring at this thing

Does anyone have any change?

Or better yet, does anyone have a carrier pigeon on them?

It’s the all important first date!!!

4 Line Stories: Mind Trip

Fool: Oh wise one, how must I see things clearly

Wise man: You must free your mind of whatever blocks your view

Fool: Hmmm, I think I understand

So the fool kick the wise man off top of the mountain… “What a view,” said the fool
