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

Romantic Tuesday: Photogenic


Adjusting the lens

to bring you into a clearer focus

your smile causes the lens to blush

overwhelmed by your lush tones

we sit for a spell

casting out thoughts and reeling in dreams

you lean up closer against me

“how can one be so deserving,” I think to myself

this is not the fortune of serendipity

you and I know we belong together

you have a way of bringing out the light in everything

I lean up closer against you

the life around us has never been so bright

it shows in all we say and do

plus in all the wonderful photos of you

At Any Angle


The wind finds amusement with your hair

I find amusement in your smile

Always fascinates me

God constructed it perfectly

At any angle it is beautiful

I chuckle at myself

Your smile induces daydreaming

I could not be a recipient of anything better

Than to have this forever

Forever is a long time

Hmmm, that’s a lot of smiles to enjoy

That makes me smile

Cresting Light 

And still your smile lights up the world 

A constant refreshing reminder of hope

There is a glimmer in your eyes 

A sparkling light cresting on a mountain top

Which never ceases to amaze me 

I appreciate you more as the days are folded and packed away 

You continue to find untapped ground within me to grow

I feel it because the stem of your presence moves my heart 

What you give to this life, to my life

Is the wholeness of your being

I am blessed

Blessed to have the experience of you sharing yourself with me

As we desecend deeper into this well of love we discovered 

I am totally mesmerized

One Life

One life

One smile

The reason to ride earth’s rotation

God puts a match to a candle

Lighting the day

Lighting my eyes in awareness

If it is only a glimpse

I smile

In this one life

So many blessings found

In one smile

Monday Motivation: It’s Okay To Laugh

Life can be so strenuous at times. We are pressured from all sides, with work, home life, just trying to make it through each day. Sometimes, we need to just stop and breathe. We need to remember to enjoy ourselves and rouse up the spirit with something we enjoy doing, or just having a good laugh every once in a while…

It is okay to lose it and have some fun and keep things balanced.

“I went to a bookstore and asked the saleswoman, ‘Where’s the self-help section?’ She said if she told me, it would defeat the purpose.”
George Carlin


Numerous Reasons

With each other

we have found numerous reasons to smile

you, a delightful butterfly

I, a tamed tiger

we are Doe, to the outside world

John and Jane, respectfully

yet, we know one another so very well

finding the right bone to tickle

eliciting laughter, to lighten the mood

priceless moments I wouldn’t trade for anything

only appreciate them

and when we find ourselves smiling for no reason

it’s all good, need to release and be a little crazy sometimes

on our next date, I make sure to wear a bow tie

I see you’re smiling a little…..
