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.


Remembering Robin Williams 

Time out for some laughs 



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

The Paw And The Pen

So I gave my alter ego a pen 

To see what he would come up with

So I had to translate his thoughts for you:


A presidential looking guy 

Wearing a red tie 

Sports a read face

His locker room banter

Went viral 

And now his campaign spirals

Even further from reality 


A woman with a presidential look

Her last name is the hook 

To reel in the votes 

But her personal email notes

Are being leaked

She has a Wikileaks in her foundation 

But she believes there will be jubilation 

When she makes history come November 


My paws are cramping (sorry that wasn’t meant to be translated, it was personal)


Sunday with Syl’s pen

Thoughtful of him to lend

And share this cat’s spin

I wish you could see his grin


Yes I am just a tad off center

4 Line Stories: The Cursed Flip Flops

Ordered some flip flops off the internet 

Every time at the beach I’d walk like a penguin 

While reading the packing slip, my mustache started twitching 

What the…. From the Charlie Chaplin collection (in very small print)
